The trash loot that can be gathered from Tuskarr Tackleboxes, Disturbed Dirt, Expedition Scout’s Packs, and other types of treasures has a fairly decent value. Although this may not be the most rewarding form of WoW gold farming, it can definitely earn you a couple of thousand gold quickly, and without having to involve the Auction House. Plus, some of these treasures have the chance of containing other BoP valuable stuff like Dragon Shards of Knowledge or Primal Chaos.
So, here’s a treasure route in Thaldraszus that covers the areas with the most Tuskarr Tackleboxes, as well as other keypoints that hold multiple spawn points for Disturbed Dirt, Expedition Scout’s Packs, Magic Bound Chests, etc.
- Iskaara Tuskarr Renown Level 27
- Dragonscale Expedition Renown Level 5
- Sturdy Expedition Shovels
- Merchant Mount (optional)
Where to go:
The very first major treasure location is near Valdrakken. So, teleport to Valdrakken in Thaldraszus and have this location as your starting point for your route.
What to do:
Follow the route above, and gather all the Tuskarr Tackleboxes, Disturbed Dirt, Expedition Scout’s Packs, and other treasures that you can find.
The most important locations on the route are the following:
- The Cascades (35, 67)
- Gardens of Unity (35, 73)
- South Hold Gate (38, 83)
- Stormshroud Peak (48, 80)
- Shifting Sands (57, 81)
- Tyrhold Reservoir (49, 58)
At the Cascades, Gardens of Unity, Shifting Sands, and Tyrhold Reservoir, you’ll find a high concentration of tackleboxes. Conversely, at South Hold Gate and Stormshroud Peak, there aren’t any tackleboxes, but you’ll find a fair amount of Disturbed Dirt and other treasures.
The trash loot obtained from all these treasures will fill up your inventory pretty quickly, so having at least a Traveler’s Tundra Mammoth to sell everything helps. You’ll basically have to sell the loot every 15 minutes or less. So, if you don’t have a merchant mount, you’ll have to make a stop at any of the friendly NPCs en-route to get rid of the trash loot.
The Turkarr Tackleboxes have a respawn rate of around 8 minutes. So, by covering this route, you’ll always find them up at the next location. Although the loot in the tackleboxes isn’t as valuable as the loot in other treasures, you’ll get a fairly decent amount of fish from them.
After one hour of treasure hunting in Thaldraszus following this route, I got the following amount of gold and valuables:
- Dull Spined Clam x 29
- Potions x 38
- Temporal Dragonhead x 22
- Cerulean Spinefish x 18
- Aileron Seamoth x 28
- Thousandbite Piranha x 24
- Islefin Dorado x 27
- Scalebelly Mackerel x 66
- Gold (after selling trash loot): 7,283g
Depending on the professions you have, you can gather various reagents from some of these treasures. On my tailor, I got Tattered Wildercloth and Spools of Wilderthread, while on my engineer, I got Shock-Spring Coils, Everburning Blasting Powder, and Greased-Up Gears.
You don’t need to have 27 Renown Level with Iskaara Turkarr on all of your characters, in order to see and loot Tuskarr Tackleboxes. Once you reach 27 Renown with one character, you should be able to see and loot them with other characters that haven’t reached this reputation level. I was able to collect them even with a level 60 character with 0 Iskaara reputation.
