Even though Grim Batol was and still is an excellent farming spot for Embersilk Cloth, since WoD was released Bastion of Twilight takes the cake for it. That’s because you can gather over 1,000 Embersilk in 20 minutes tops here, plus a lot of other valuable stuff.
This farming method is simple. Here’s where you need to go, and what you should do.
- Level 100 character;
- AoE spec;
- Flying mount;
- Flight Master’s License.
- Tailoring minimum 325 skill (optional);
- Potion of Treasure Finding (optional).
Where to go:
Use the portal in your main city (Orgrimmar or Stormwind), to teleport to Twilight Highlands, at Highbank or Dragonmaw Port, depending on your faction. From there fly west, to the Twilight Citadel (34,78). The entrance to the raid instance Bastion of Twilight is all the way up, on top of the highest tower at Twilight Citadel.
What to do:
Before entering the instance, don’t forget to set the level up to 25-man. The 10-man has fewer mobs.
Inside BoT, all you have to do is clear all the trash mobs up to the first boss. Pretty much the same thing as in Dragon Soul. There are about 8 chunky packs of mobs just by the entrance. Pull them all and AoE them down. In case you’re too squishy to get all the mobs in one pull, either make two pulls, or try to keep away from the ground AoE spells.
Once all the mobs up to the first boss are dead, loot up, exit the instance, reset it, and repeat the process 9 more times, until lockout. With a decently geared character, 10 runs of this sort inside BoT shouldn’t take more than 20-25 minutes. Pulling all the mobs at once should take maximum 2 minutes.
On my last lockout at Bastion of Twilight, playing a lvl 100 Death Knight, with Tailoring and a Potion of Treasure Finding, I’ve managed to get:
Embersilk Cloth x 1047 = 1g / each = 1047g
Pyrite Ore x 17 = 3g / each = 51g
Elementium Ore x 9 = 2g / each = 18g
Volatile Earth x 6 = 5g / each = 30g
Volatile Life x 4 = 1g / each = 4g
Volatile Fire x 4 = 15g / each = 60g
Green Item x 24 = 80g / each = 1920g
Heaving Plates of Protection x 1 = 150g
Phase-Twister Leggings x 1 = 90g
Soul Blade x 1 = 100g
Unheeded Warning x 1 = 240g
Cash (after selling the trash loot) = 430g
Total: 4140g after 20 min. of grinding.
Evidently, if you have Tailoring 325+ skill, for the Cloth Scavenging passive, you will be able to get much more Embersilk Cloth from here. Also, you will get plenty of valuable resources from the boxes that the Potion of Treasure Finding grants you.
In case the Potions of Treasure Finding tend to be expensive on your server, keep an eye on the Auction House and always buy a couple when prices drops to 20-30g.
Depending on server, Hypnotic Dust can reach very high prices per stack. Therefore, if you consider that it’s not worth to sell all your greens to the AH as they are, disenchant them and sell the dusts. Or, from the dust you get, plus some of the Embersilk Cloth, craft Embersilk Bags. Those alwasy sell like hot cakes, for up to 300g.
