This Saronite Ore farming guide outlines the best places for mining Saronite Ore. To mine Saronite Deposits and Rich Saronite Deposits, you will need a mining skill of 400 and 425, respectively. Titanium Veins, which require a mining skill of 450, are rare nodes that can also be found in areas where Saronite Deposits are located. Two recommended zones for Saronite Ore farming are Wintergrasp and Sholazar Basin due to their fast respawn rates and abundance of Rich Saronite Deposits.

  • Saronite Ore Requires a Mining Skill of 400
  • Rich Saronite Veins Requires a Mining Skill of 425
