Gold mining node

Gold is a metal that can be mined. Gold veins can also produce gems and Heavy Stone. Mined from the rich earth of Azeroth and Lordaeron, this precious metal is commonly used in exchange for goods and services. As a rare substance that is always in short supply, Gold must be dug out from the rock and soil within established Gold Mines. Many of these Mines were abandoned when the Orc raids began and the workers fled for their very lives. Since the beginning of the war, these sites are frequently operated while under the protection of military forces.[1] (WC2Man 32)

Gold vein[]


[Gold Veins] are a type of mineral deposit which can be mined at mining skill level 115. According to Thottbot, gold veins are mined most often in the Badlands, Burning Steppes, and Arathi Highlands. This gold ore can then be smelted into gold bars at the forge also at the same minimum skill level.

Gems mined[]
