Season of Discovery changes up the Classic WoW meta with lower level caps, which also limits what items you can craft and use. For the Mining profession, that means you’ll be farming lower level ore, stone, and gems for use by Blacksmiths and Engineers.

Mining Leveling & Trainers

Check out our Classic Mining Guide for trainer locations, a leveling guide, and more.

Phase 1 Ore to Farm

Phase 1 of Season of Discovery comes with a level cap of 25, and a level 26 requirement for Expert skills. That means the maximum skill you can reach with professions is Journeyman, or skill level 150.

At this level, pretty much any ore above Copper could be worth farming. Blacksmiths and Engineers will be looking for all of it.

Here are all of the ores, stone, and gems that can be mined in Phase 1 of Season of Discovery. Click on a node in the “Where to Pick column to see maps with spawn locations by zone.
