Embersilk Cloth is still a resource on quite a high demand, since Embersilk Bags are the most used bags at the moment, by the majority of level 90 players. That’s because you need to become exalted with The August Celestials in order to get the Pattern: Royal Satchel, and even if you have it, the bag requires 12 Imperial Silk pieces to craft, which aren’t that easy to obtain. Therefore, if you want to craft Embersilk Bags, or you just need Embersilk Cloth for other crafts, here’s one of the best spots (if not the best) that you can find.
- Level 85;
- Tailoring: minimum 325 skill;
- Northern Cloth Scavenging;
- Potion(s) of Treasure Finding;
Where to go:
Teleport to Stormwind City (Alliance) or Orgrimmar (Horde) and use the portal there to teleport to Tol Barad Peninsula. From your faction camp, move to the middle southwestern part of Tol Barad Peninsula, at the Restless Front (40,60).
What to do:
Start grinding on the Restless Infantry and Soldiers that fight each other at the Restless Front. Loot their corpses. Don’t forget to pop up a Potion of Treasure Finding, for more cloth.
Important: In case you’re here with a shabby, level 85 character, attack only the groups or mobs that have begun fighting each other and are already under 50% HP. Otherwise you will waste a lot of time fighting them and even die, because they are quite tough. Since the spawn rate is sometimes instant, if a mob pops up and you aggro it at 100%, don’t fight it at the same spot, move to the next group of fighting mobs and AoE them all.
After 1 hour spent here, I got the following loot:
Embersilk Cloth x 421 = 50g/stack = 1052g
Volatile Air x 6 = 15g/each = 90g
Volatile Fire x 8 = 5g/each = 40g
Volatile Earth x 8 = 5g/each = 40g
Volatile Life x 12 = 3g/each = 36g
Elementium Ore x 5 = 2g/each = 10g
Green Item x 3 = 100g/each = 300g
Cash (after selling the trash loot): 141g
TOTAL: 1709g after 1 hour of grinding here.
Deducting the price of the Potion of Treasure Finding – 60g, here’s the final sum:
TOTAL: 1709g – 60g = 1649g
Always keep an eye out for opposite faction players, especially if you play Alliance, because the spot is near the Horde camp. If PvP happens to be intense here, I recommend you to go to the Troggs spot, in Deepholm.
Before selling the cloths as it is, check the prices for Bolts of Embersilk Cloth. The price for 1 bolt might be higher than the price for its materials. Therefore, in that case it would be best if you changed all your cloth into bolts and sell those instead, for a bigger profit.
In case you also have Enchanting, you can craft Deathsilk Belts or Deathsilk Bracers from a part of your Bolts of Embersilk Cloth, and disenchant them for some Hypnotic Dust. With the remaining Bolts of Embersilk Cloth and Hypnotic Dust, you can craft Embersilk Bags. Or, you can purchase the Hypnotic Dust from AH if it’s cheap, to make more bags.
The required materials for an Embersilk Bag are Bolt of Embersilk Cloth x 15, Hypnotic Dust x 15.
I usually farm here until I get enough dust and Bolts of Embersilk Cloth for 4 Embersilk Bags.
