Where to Farm Titanium and Saronite Ore
This guide is updated for patch 4.3.
Below you’ll find a World of Warcraft Saronite and Titanium Mining Guide. Titanium is a rare spawn node and will typically be found where Saronite nodes are usually found. So, if you are looking for Titanium follow the routes on the map for the Saronite and you will likely run into a Titanium node once in a while.
You will also notice the Gryphon icon on the maps, this means that the areas are only reached or best reached by using a flying mount.
Where to Mine Saronite and Titanium in Sholazar Basin
Sholazar Basin: Levels 75-78
Sholazar Basin is probably the most loaded ore zone in the game right now. Having said that, it is also the most hostile. The opposite faction will not hesitate to attack you over even the basic Saronite node. There are also a lot of cinder and steam clouds in this zone so there will be a lot of engineers collecting Crystallized Water and Crystallized Fire. The basic route for this zone is to fly the entire outside loop except in the northeast where you take the water path westward. Now, in the event you are in a dry spell or you know there is another miner in front of you, the best thing to do is to swerve off into the water paths toward the center and be spontaneous about it. Don’t keep flying the same route over and over. Use the center as a traffic circle and randomly pick your next direction. As always, there are Titanium Nodes that will randomly spawn in the zone in place of Saronite nodes.
Where to Mine Saronite and Titanium in Icecrown
Icecrown: Levels 77-80
Icecrown is my favorite area to get Saronite and Titanium in simply because its a higher level zone and it’s not very easy to run around on the ground with a ground mount due to all of the higher level enemies in the center. Therefore, it is an epic flying mount dream. Sometimes there are a lot of people in this zone and sometimes there are not. If you think there are people ahead of you on route because you are not getting any mines go ahead and reverse your direction or just fly across the zone to another point on the route and begin from there. I’ve had the most luck with Titanium in the northwest region. Also don’t forget to fly up into the undead area northwest of Argent Vanguard, there are usually as many as 4 Saronite nodes up at a time in that area.
Where to Mine Saronite and Titanium in The Storm Peaks
The Storm Peaks: Levels 76-80
The Storm Peaks is my least favorite zone to mine Titanium and Saronite in. If you just fly that path on the map you will run into the Saronite nodes but it was heavily camped when I tried the route. The best thing to do is to duck into the cave systems along the route. Inside the caves is the only spot in The Storm Peaks I’ve found a Titanium node. If you look on the map there are caves all over the place, so if this route isn’t working for you, dive into the caves.
Where to Mine Saronite and Titanium in Instances
If you are looking to get Saronite and Titanium in instances you may want to check the Halls of Stone (77-79).
