List of ore by zone

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of all Ore by area. The recommended character level is listed as well as the recommended Mining level. The ore levels are given to the point of where the deposits turn green. So Copper will have a ore level of 1-49. The recommended level is given by what levels in Mining will allow you to still mine a large amount of yellow and orange ranked ore.

This is a work in progress that was modeled after the Herbs by area page. We encourage you to update and correct this page.
