If you are looking for mass amounts of runecloth (Either for leveling Tailoring or trying to get rep with the core factions for mounts) the best place to farm runecloth is in Blackrock Stronghold (45.5, 35.2) in Burning Steppes. The orcs there can be killed fast and drop 1-3 runecloth almost in every kill. As a rogue I can get about 5-6 stacks per hour of farming.
The post above me provides a good location, however I think that you'll find that the undead citizens of Karazhan (in Deadwind Pass after the orcs) is a better place. In an hour I can easily get the number he is talking above and they drop significantly more silver. The respawn rate is considerably better as well.
I've heard rumors that it will be profitable to farm up 7 or 8 stacks of runecloth to have ready when the expansion comes out. There will be new bandages to be learned and anyone with first-aid will need runecloth to skill up. Also, once other people realize they need runecloth the demand will be higher and so stacks might be sold for more in the AH. In that case, it might be good to farm up a good amount of runecloth right before the expansion and set them in the AH then.
Netherweave cloth bandages is the next step
Manual: Netherweave Bandage -> requires 330 first aid
Manual: Heavy Netherweave Bandage - > requires 360 first aid
They can be purchased for 2 and 4g
They heal 2800 and 3400 dmg over 8 secs respectively
Hope that helps
If there is anything that I've learned about the Auction House it's that there is always a better deal. For example, runecloth. On both my alliance server and my horde I have noticed the price of runecloth vary from as low as 85s a stack to as high as 3.5g a stack, and not on seperate occasions. It is in my experience that even though you may be in a hurry to buy a few stacks of runecloth, or any other high end stackable item, don't settle for the first page of the item on the Auction House. There is awlays a better price. Save yourself a few gold and take the extra second to check all the pages, you never know what sort of deal you will get, trust me, I've gotten some great deals.
I've heard the rumor that you should save 300-ish runecloth to level up to the next bandage in the expansion (prices will go up so think ahead -.^)
On average you can buy them off the auction house for 2g/a stack. These drop of 50+ Mobs and can be easily farmed and found in the Plaguelands, Winterspring and Felwood.
Runecloth is also needed for the Paladin Epic Mount quest, 40 of them to be exact.
For the other items you need for this quest, refer to
for additional info.
Currently the best way to gain faction with your home factions, i.e. if you are Alliance, gaining rep with SW, IF, Darn, and Gnomish.
I have 7 Epic mounts to date at the moment, which requires exalted with the three other alliance factions, all of which was done with multitudes of Runecloth.
You can make good money in the market with Runecloth.
A great place I have always liked is Silithus. Tons of humanoid mobs everywhere, they drop runecloth all the time and if you are 70, forget 'bout it.
today as i was lvling from 57-58 in EPL, Browmans Mill, i got 20 stacks of runecloth in about 5-6 hours. Truely an awesome place to farm runecloth, mobs range from 57-60 very easy to kill 1 or 2 as a 57 shadow priest. very high drop rate, bout 1 in 3
imo the best place to farm this at lvl 70 is at the troll temple in EPL. I got 171 runecloth in less than 1 hour as a sublety rogue
The casters at Blackrock Stronghold in The Burning Steppe have an absolutely phenomenal drop rate for runecloth. If there isn't anyone there, I highly suggest you farm there.
There also seems to be quite frequent drops from the ogres round Dreadmaul Rock in Burning Steppes, mostly the mages it seems to drop the most on
Blackrock Stronghold - crap drop rate , really isntr as good as tyrs hand
tyrs Hand excellent drop rate, best loacation imo
felwood furbogs - crap drop rate
A great place is the bloodelfs in azshara, they also drop from 2-6 silver each.
thanks for the great info on farming sites. Respec'd to tailoring this weekend and not only was there little runecloth to be had, it was wildly overpriced. So I came to Blackrock Stronghold and ran some laps on the inside ring, cleared the yard, ran a few more laps and had quite a number of stacks of bolts of rune cloth before I even had to rebuff.
On to the next!
actualy i like to farm in felwood.. it dont only dropp runecloth.. mageweave cloth and felcloth dropps to.. kill jade fire mobs and they give lots of silver to..
if you are going to farm might be good to select spot according to what else u can gain from it. If you are not lvl 70.. find a palce that give you good xp.if you are lvl 70 and dont need rep i suggest mobs with low hp and high spawnrate. just a note for previous comments. please tell what lvl the area is best for xp or/and spawnrate
As a nice suggestion for some decent runecloth farming, I'd like to mention the area just north of Lights Hope Chapel; the Noxious Glade. You'll find a lot of undead in the area, dropping 1 to 4 runecloth at a time. You can easily do 5 stacks an hour running around here!
Oh no, my secret's out now!
I'm an affliction lock. I tried all the places above, which were great, however HoT doesn't work on undead. I went over to Feralas to try farming the ogres for runecloth, and it's the best place imo! I easily get 6 stacks in 30-45 minutes.
You can farm lots of them here and they are a fast respawn. I continuously get drops of 3 - 4 runecloth and tons of greens. I have attached a screenshot to show the runecloth drops a lot.
I find the ogres in feralas are a waste of time. ive killed at least a 100 ogres so far and normally dont get runecloth. All i get is money. Drop rate is very poor or just very poor for me. Yet when it does drop, its normally 1 runecloth and the occasional 2 runecloth. Very rare to find one that drops 3-4 runecloth. Been at it for 30 minutes and maybe collected 20.
I have found a really easy place to farm runecloth to be the unyielding footmen at fort at the southern end of Hellfire Peninsula. They have a good drop rate. Other beneficial things about this area are:
1. The long line of the footmen on the ridge that don't wander. You can pull them without much competition.
2. The respawn rate is crazy fast so if you are pulling from the line, by the time you get to the end the front of the line has respawned.(##RESPBREAK##)140##DELIM##ArgentSun##DELIM##This seems to be no longer accurate. The

All of the above spots are okay, but the one place that worked best for me was Silithus grinding the Twilight Mobs. Mobs have around 3.8k health and are easy kills, packed closely together and most drop around 1-3 runecloth.
They can be found here:
I'm not the quickest grinder (no AoE) but I got about 3 stacks in 30 mins.
In my opinion the best place to farm Runecloth near the Expedition Armory in Hellfire Peninsula, killing the Unyielding Footmen and Knights. They are all lvl 59-60, and 80% they drop 1-3 Runecloth.
As a lvl 62 UD Shadow Priest, I have just grinded the place for 2½ hours.
This netted me a total of:
14 stacks of Runecloth
2 stacks of Netherweave
12 green drops
I also got:
26g 07s 97c in loot money
7g 55s 06c selling the grey drops
I make laps starting with the line of Footmen to the east, starting from the top and going down. Then I go west and make a circle around the tower. By the time I finish the circle the line of Footmen will have respawned. The Footmen seemed the best to me, although the Knights also dropped a good amount. I did not bother with the Sorcerers as they did not drop anything but money.
Footmen have around 4,5-5k HP, easy kills with no special attacks.
Knights have around 3,3-4k HP; they charge as the fight begins, once around 50% they call for help, plus they can heal others (but not themselves) - so always kill them first.
As a Shadow Priest I just used VT - SW:P - Mind Flay - Wand (and occasionally SW:D). Sometimes, I also used VE to get my health back up. During the 2½ hours I drank 25 times; once every 12th fight or so.
This place is imho better than Azerothian grinding places when you are at a level where you still get XP for killing the mobs. I was rested to start with and got 1k XP per kill, totalling up to 200k rested XP - afterwards I got 500 XP per kill, which added up to 70k XP.
Not being rested at all would have netted me 170k XP, a fair amount for 2½ hours of grinding.
Moreover, there is not that much competition here. There are only few quests, and those are for lvl 58-59 - so you will probably be able to handle characters from the other faction if you are lvl 61-62.
Another good thing is that lvl 70’s almost never go here, so you are not in danger of being ganked.(##RESPBREAK##)140##DELIM##ArgentSun##DELIM##This seems to be no longer accurate. The

Browman Mill is located at 77,52.
The entrance to Zul'mashar is at 68,20
The entrance to Tyr's Hand is at 77,81
i farmed these for a while in felwood(killing the deadwood furbogs). The drop rate wasnt to pleasing but i was able to get honored with them so i could buy some of their enchants =)
Since then i have moved to The Noxious Glade in EPL. The drops are much better, plus they seem to be dropping alot of greens aswell as scourgestones. A few minutes ago i had a Mymridon's signet drop(hope i get some good cash out of that lol).
Oh yes and i have gotten alot of Essences of undeath, which are pretty useful!
I tried out the Expedition Armory in HF, but in my experience The Noxious Glade in Eastern Plaguelands is a better choice. The good thing about Expedition Armory is, they're all right there lined up for you, but that's about it. There are downsides to the Armory. They sometimes drop Netherweave, which if you're farming for Runecloth is basically worthless - if you've done questing in Outland you probably have at least one bank bag full of the stuff. Another problem is they drop mostly lvl 58 Outland greens which, let's face it, are vendor trash! They don't sell well on AH, and although you might get a little gold out of them, it still isn't Runecloth. Finally the droprate for Runecloth there, while not bad, just isn't that great.
The Noxious Glade is practically all positive. You're guaranteed that if they drop any cloth at all, it's Runecloth - and they drop cloth significantly more frequently than at the Armory. They drop Essence of Undeath, which stacks unlike Outland greens. And the greens that they do drop are low 50s which *can* sell pretty well on AH, or at least will disenchant into something other than Arcane Dust (which is about all you'll get from an Outlands DE). Plus there's a lot more mobs in the Glade, and by the time you circle around chances are good you'll pick up the respawns right away.
I've found that the best place to farm Runecloth with my lvl70 Warrior is good old Tyrs Hand, especially the caster mobs. They are still elite but die pretty quick and drop greens/blues very frequently. If you are an enchanter you gonna make a decent profit out of all these drops.
Don't forget to check the buildings for the High General rare-spawn.
I have a lvl 66 Warlock Affliction speced and I went to Expedition Armory in HF. My professions are Tailoring and Enchanting. I thought it was the best place for 3 reasons.
1) The respawns are FAST. All I did was kill the sorceresses around the circular area and as soon as I got to the other side they already respawned.
2) Everyone drops 2 - 3 Rune cloths, rarely (but not too rare) 1 maybe 2 Netherweave, some greens, and some grays. The greens I was able to Disenchant and get some dust or shards from them. The grays I can turn around and sell for about a gold a piece, and the Netherweave I just used to make my Neatherweave bandages so I was never out of bandages ever.
3) I was still able to get some exp and get back some soul shards from farming in Kalmidor or Eastern Kingdoms for so long.
I didn't try the other spots but so far I like that one the best. Even at least if you don't get exp from killing them or you can't get shards from killing them as a lock, you can still get some Netherweave and always store it for later when you are able to use it.
I just tried Dire Maul and I would have to agree. Dire Maul is the best place. It took me a while but very quickly I was getting 4 rune cloths will almost every kill. Greens I wasn't getting much of though. Don't go inside Dire Maul, stay on the outside. Best place.
Expedition Armory is a good place though if you still need to farm and you need to replenish on supplies.
i dunno how u guys think of this but i generally jsut buy things instead of farming it, and then i go farm something that gives me more money then the runecloth costs. u know :P instead of farming runecloth for an hour, getting say 5stacks, i farm something which cost more for an hour, buy 7 stacks of runecloth on AH for the money i gained selling what i just farmed :P
amen! why farm 4, 5, 10 stacks of runecloth per hour when you can easily farm upwards of 100g or more of outlands mats and buy your runecloth
An alternative spot to farm runecloth that actually has a good drop rate is the ogres outside of Dire Maul. I was able to make six stacks of runecloth bolts in about an hour.
The ogres inside are not as easy, even if you are a 70 with a pet.
For a lower lvl grinding approach to farming runecloth, try the ogres in deadwind pass (lvl 55-57), they are only about 30% drop, but in an hour i got 24 bolts, 4 green objects and about 1g75. The good thing about them is they are close together, low aggro and fast re-spawn.
If you're farming runecloth for tailoring, I suggest going to Jadefire Run in Felwood. The mobs drop Felcloth, and they respawn pretty fast. The Felcloth drop rate wasn't too shabby either. :]
On my server (Hyrdraxis) runecloth prices in the Auction Houses have soared since the release of The Burning Crusade. One of the main reasons is that many people around level 55-60 who want to grind quickly go to Outland where runecloth does not drop. If people have not realized, Everlook, Felwood, and the Burning Steppes have all become wastelands since no one goes there anymore. So if your aiming for a lot of money, grind for runecloth. Currently, Netherweave cloth is less expensive than runecloth.
I found the best spot to farm runecloth is Dancing Troll Village, a secret (legal) zone between moonglade, darkshore and felwood. Here is a movie about how to get there:
Notes: You need to be Alliance to be able to attack the trolls. The best class is the mage, as there is the Big Group of Dancers (so I named them) that don't hit rlly hard and die quickly.
I found it personally quite easy to farm them as a level 62 fire mage. Just AoE like mad and they will fall.
P.S. - They have a high chance to drop greens or blues and they dropped for me once
. Really worth at least visiting that place.
P.P.S - the trolls are between lvl 52 - 58.
EDIT: found their wowhead link
EDIT 2: I really doubt that this place is forbidden, as a post under mine states. If it would be forbidden, why would Blizzard have created them Loot Tables in the first place?
It is forbidden to visit this place, indeed :(. I'll just leave this post here for it's historical value ;)
You have to kill the ones near Dire Maul for runecloth to drop. I've tried EPL, the ridge in Hellfire, and Dire Maul ogres (outside, not inside the instance) is still my favorite place.
While farming runecloth on my 70 hunter for my 43 tailor/enchant priest, I tried a few places. I thought I might share my experiences for anyone else in a similar situation.
First was Jadefire Run in Felwood. The drop rate on runecloth wasn't bad, usually 1-3 pieces every second or third satyr. The real gem about this location was the felcloth, however. After a few hours (around 3.5 spread over a few days) I wound up with just under a stack of felcloth to send to my priest. It probably isn't as useful as it was pre-BC, but it's still handy to have.
Next was the Noxious Glade in EPL. Since I didn't level my hunter there, it took a while of exploring to find the place and get my map filled out. The cloth drops were good, 1-3 from the humanoid and undead mobs, and the mobs were well grouped (2-3 together, making it easier for us without powerful/effective AoE to get a good group of mobs together). The Essence of Undeath and Ichor of Undeath was a nice bonus, too. Unlike above posters, I didn't find a lot of green drops. Still, if I were farming Argent Dawn rep and runecloth at the same time, I can think of no better place.
I only tried the ogres outside of Dire Maul (Feralas) for a short time after noticing the cloth drops were mainly one piece at a time with the occasional two, that is when cloth dropped at all. The caster mobs around were nice for me as a hunter to keep range, but I did notice a lot of competition around. I don't know if it was my server or if there really are a lot of people aching to run Dire Maul. As a 70, I didn't get ganked at all, but lower levels might if their server is anything like mine.
In the end, Hellfire Peninsula won me over, just like so many others. I can farm runecloth AND netherweave (which, unlike someone before said, not all of us kept from our time levelling in Outlands) and get the bonus greens to disenchant or vendor. Plus, the greys here sell for a lot more, meaning I don't have to turn auto-loot off to prevent a bag full of junk, so everything is just a little faster. And more profitable.
Got 17 stacks of Runecloth in Tyr's Hand, farmed non stop for one hour. There cant be other places where u can get as much as this :P
Im decked out in full T6 + Random SWP parts (Hunter)
I hate farming, lemme tell you. Absolutely hate it because it is time consuming and often times sad. Having tried to farm for this before, I was really wary, especially knowing that most people want you to go to WPL/EPL. I hate that place. Also out of desperation, I went to the outside area of Kara, the ogres in Deadwind Pass, Felwood, Feralas and other places which all validated my hatred for farming.
I took the advice of fellow wowheaders and went to Hellfire to the Expedition Armory, against my better judgement. Lemme tell you why you should go there:
In 30 minutes I:
Got 3g from mob kill loot
4g from vendor trash
8 greens that I in turn disenchanted (not sure which was worth more yet)
4 stacks of Rune cloth
2 stacks of Netherweave
And I would say that is pretty darn good farming. Let me also share another secret. When you are coming around the armory by the Warp Fields, take a brief detour and slay about 5 of the void walkers. You will likely get 2-4 mote of shadow per half/full hour. This may not seem like much, but considering how much cloth you will want, you will get 10 of these in no time. 10=primal shadow= 30-50g on the 3 servers I am on.
Happy hunting :)
I tried killing the guards at Thereamore Isle and they dont drop anything... they just despawn.
one thing i have found when farming in feralas is that they take several minutes to 'warm up'. they don't start dropping runecloth, hardly at all, for close to 20 mobs in... for some reason, i have no idea why... but don't get discouraged, as once they have warmed up, it is nearly a 50% drop for about 80% of the time 3 or 4 cloth. the other nice thing is that these kills take literally less than 10 seconds a piece. i got ten stacks of runecloth in around 45 minutes or less. i also got a few greens which i de'd, and i got lucky and got
this monster which i sold for 200 gold in less than 5 minutes at if. somebody offered me 1k, which he was crazy for, but he said he changed his mind cos he was saving up for his mount. obviously that's a rare occasion, and isn't anything that you should pick your place for; a rare multi hundred gold drop. nevertheless, this is a fantastic place to farm with absolutely zero competition. is more of a pain to get to, even if you're a mage, though.
One of the posts above lists Zul'Mashar (EPL) as a good cloth grinding location - it is very good. The post also mentions the dirt piles in the center of the camp - getting close to them will spawn mobs. What the post doesn't mention is that these mobs have a horrible 2 second knockdown ability that appears to have little to no cooldown and seldom, if ever, misses a lvl 70 cloth wearer.
Here's a link to the type of mob that spawns: Infected Mossflayers (
). Their knockdown is so bad that if you have more than one of these mobs on you, you literally may not be able to use a potion.
Extremly good levling Tailoring with, and pretty cheap to.
The armory is pretty good. I harvested 5 stacks in about an hour but then it died. I only got 4 in about 2 hours. If anyone knows of a better place please post it. I also tried the Noxious Glade and to me was no good. I got 1 runecloth for every 5 to 6 I killed. Dire Maul is not to bad but right now the Armory is still #1.
Good place to farm this is Stratholme baron run. Was bombing the shit outta the undead crap as mage together with a tankadin. In ~10 runs both of us had ~75 Stacks each. Was doing the runs to becom exalted with Argent Dawn (remember there is a title for both the argent factions coming wotlk). Each run was ~45 min from the main gate killing every boss who drops a Corruptor's Scourgestone.
As a 70 Protection Paladin with full kara and badge epics I was able to farm 8 full stacks of runecloth in exactly 30 minutes in Stratholme.
It is very easy, I pull 2-4 groups of the undead onto me and just grind them down without really needing to use any of my "oh crap!" buttons.
Just did some farming on various spots, with an absolute low at the Armoury. 200 kills and 28 runecloth awarded.
Favourite spots so far are the Twilight Camps in Silithus and Deadwind Pass ogres, with about 1.5 runecloth per kill average. Now I know this data is all in big part a matter of personal experiences, but just thought I'd add my 2c here.
I do go mine thorium in winterspring these days.. Down under in the caves with elite demons. I noticed these demons often drop 2-4 runecloth (succebus and felguard models) so instead of running past them on the way to thorium I now kill them all (they are elite with 12k or 17k hitpoints, but it still goes pretty fast.
Strat imo is by far the best place to farm RC. Though you have to be an AoE pally to farm it efficiently, you can rake in a ton of coin doing solo runs. In about a half hour I picked up a little over 9 stacks of RC and about 20g in vendor trash with 30g in shards and a little more in greens.
Why does wowhead only list where it drops from instance mobs and not all the other 300 mobs who drop it as well?
If the need for runecloth would arise and you happen to be level 80, I recommend you take your trusty steed and ride off to eastern plaguelands and stratholme. I ran the whole thing, both scarlet and undead side, killed everything and ended up with about 18 stacks. Also you get tons of blues, greens, silver and if you're really lucky, the baron might see fit to reward you for killing him by giving you his mount. :)
Silly sidenote: It might be worth noting Runecloth drops off Timbermaw mobs as well, so you can max both reputations at the same time. Albeit the droprate isn't as great, but if there is no one around it should go pretty quick.
Idd Stratholme is a very good farming spot for Runecloth. As a Feral Druid I was able to start farming in there with mostly crap green and blues from Northrend quests. Once you gear up it becomes even more easy. Now I can easily run into 5-6 packs of mobs at a time and spam Maul (with glyph) and Swipe.
The time you'll spend in there is worth it, without rushing, just taking time to visit an old instance, chilling around and so forth, you'll be able to get 13-14 stacks of Runecloth in about an hour or so. The only problem you may have is bag space with all the grey/green/blues you'll pick up along the way. If you take your time and loot every mob without the Auto Loot option enabled you won't have that problem ofc, the only downside I can see in that is that you'll lose a lot of time but that's up to you :)
Another plus to solo'ing strat, is you get argent dawn rep for one of the achievements. Just solo it wearing your argent dawn commission and you can get 7-9 corruptors scourge stones which comes to around 1400 rep it self.
Off of the Twilight Mobs, I averaged about 1-3 pieces of Runecloth, About every three to four kills.
Eh, Not the best, Imo.
But We'll see.
Ok, I have tried going to all three areas (Tyr's Hand, Hellfire, and Noxious Glade), and here are the ranks imo: Tyr's hand was worst for me, dropping hardly anything and with far spaced mobs. Hellfire with the unyielding footmen was good for me because it had a relatively good drop rate and fast spawns. By far, however, Noxious Glade was the best area. It has very good drop rate and a large area with well spaced mobs. As a 61 Unholy DK, it was very easy for me to farm. I would recommend this area for farming.
I decided to go for the Ambassador titel (exalted with all the horde factions) and for that i needed roughly 250 stacks of Runecloth. So, what i did (and doing still) is to farm Stratholme, baron side.
This is what i get from one run:
6-8 stacks of runecloth.
~60g from selling everything i loot to the vendor in Light´s Hope Chapel.
A chance on the baron mount.
(If you´re not exalted with Argent Dawn, i suggest you put on your trinket and start collecting scourgestones)
I usualy start with a quick run to clear all bosses and get Baron down in ~11 minutes (with looting). Then i take the road back killing everything i see!
One run usualy takes about 30-35 minutes, so its imo the best farming place for runecloth!
Best regards and happy farming!

I needed 280x runecloth for rep once and I wanted to make a comparison between the ogres near dire maul entrance and the scarlets in north WP.
There aren't as many ogres as the scarlets but the ogres drop more often 2x or 4x runecloth so I get more than 60 runecloth per run.
And at the north WP scarlets...they do drop runecloth, but only 1 or 2, or 3 if I'm really lucky, there are alot of scarlets but they don't drop as often and as many as the ogres...I got less than 60 per run...
So the ogres in dire maul are the winners, they drop more often and only 2-4, i haven't seen them drop only 1...and they helped me get the Ambassador title :P
stratholme is very good
I just spent about 75-90 minutes farming solely the area arround Zul'Mahar (Aprx 64,14) and got 400 runecloth. This was done using a Level 80 hunter and a lot of patience. Mobs spawn fast enough where you can circle the camp and most of the time have something to kill. Cheers, and Happy hunting.
Runecloth Farming Locations.
Locations are listed in a random order, and no one place is better than the next, it's simply a matter of opinion.
Expedition Armory, Hellfire Peninsula
Outside of Dire Maul
Twilight's Hammer Cultists, Silithus
Dancing Troll Village
Tjoertszc -- i aprove of this comment :D
took his advice and ended up getting roughly the same maybe a few luckier on the trash drops :D but overall amazing spot
I have not checked out any of the other places listed except for Tyr's Hand in EPL and I found this to be a great place to grind for runecloth and gold. I like this place for several reasons. One, if you are lvl 70 or higher then the elite mobs should be no problem for you, even if taking on 2 or 3 at once. Two, even though the mobs can heal themselves, you can easily use any disrupt ability to stop them and the mobs do not run when low on health, so no pulling adds on you either. Three, the respawn rate is not an issue because if you clear everything, even inside the buildings and all the way up to the back of the area then that will take you a good 45 minutes, by which time plenty of mobs have respawned all over. Fourth, it would be my estimate that 90-95 percent of the mobs will drop at least one piece of runecloth with a high number of mobs dropping up to four pieces. Fifth, the silver loot is great, with a high percentage of mobs dropping at least 10silver and some dropping as much as 25silver, plus the grey vendor trash in most cases will sell for as much as 1 or 2 gold a piece. I spent a little over an hour in the morning and another hour later the same afternoon and walked away with the following:
Silver Looted: apx 38 golds worth
Vendor Trash sold for apx 16 gold
Mithril lockbox dropped x2
Star Ruby dropped x2
Five of Elementals dropped x1
Green item drops (which I DE'd) dropped x11
Runecloth dropped x401
Not bad for two hours worth of farming, though it can get tedious if farming isn't your thing. Two suggestions, if you don't have it already I highly recommend you install an addon called Sellfish which you can get from curse.com. When the loot window opens just simply put your mouse over the item and Sellfish will tell you how much you will get if you vendor that item. Very handy for determining if a grey item is worth looting or not since you can see if it will sell for 35s or 2g.
Also, keep your eyes open for "The Crimson Courier" which follows the main path on horseback through Tyr's Hand every now and then and is accompanied by 5 elite guards. I've never seen this before so it took me a bit by surprise, but if you aggro the Courier the first thing she will do is kick you and send you flying way up in the air and backwards about 30 yards and out of range for you to attack her BUT when you come back down to the ground the 5 elite guards will be right there waiting and you will land right in the middle of them.
I just finished a stratholme with almost 14 stacks of runecloth.
Scholomance Full Clear
1 hour as a ret paladin, not really rushing
12 stacks of runecloth, seems like a decent amount for the time spent
strat. hands down- i make about 1000, runecloth in 1 1/2 hrs on my pally and a decent amount of cash from greens/blues/greys. strats a food place to farm for gold, and the runecloth is a nice addition=5g/stack on AH for me
As a level 80 you can definitely pull that off in less than 30 min depending on your class, you'll find videos of people doing it in 14-15min so it's definitively worth the time spent to farm rep with the Argent Dawn.
Actually, if you skip the trash (you can skip all of it - up until the slaughterhouse), you can make it in less than 10 minutes. I never had my debuff reach 35 minutes before I engaged baron.
The only thing that really takes time is the waiting after Ramstein comes out, but you can cut this wait time by running inside while he is walking out. The horde of undeads outside will attack you when you go out again, but their damage and health is trivial to any lvl 80.
Not sure if someone else wrote this, but runecloth is also dropped by the Jadefire Shadowstalkers and Tricksters in NW Felwood. If you are trying to quickly build up your First Aid, Felwood is a good place to spend some time and get Mageweave and Runecloth.
my favorite place to farm them is in stratholme. I run in at the back door and then all the way back to scarlet section where I kill every mob out side untill Timmy the Cruel comes I kill him and enter the door and start mega pull every mob until I come to the closed door then I nuke the mobs down and loot enter the next door and mega pull rest of the mobs incl the 2 bosses Balzanaar and the other (can't remember his name) and loot. I usually get 5-10 stacks of runecloth and few righteous orbs and this is done in around 10 mins (protection Warrior)
I found the best way for me to farm rune cloth to be in UBRS. Enter black rock spire and right after you go up the steps to UBRS you enter the room where you have to put out the ruins in the 7 rooms to open the next door up. In those rooms is a mob named
r. I would kill all other mobs and leave this one up. This mob will summon other blackhand mobs every 5-15 secs. The mobs she summons are lootable. I easily would spend 20 mins just letting her summon mobs for me to kill. Never having to move from my spot. Was super easy to farm all the runecloth i needed to re-level tailoring. This might be hard for some classes as you will be in combat the entire time but i had no problems on my enhancement shaman. I don't suggest you using more then one summoner at a time cause the mobs can overwhelm you quite easily as you cant aoe in fear of killing your summoners.
Stratholme is my runecloth farming spot of choice, lately. As a level 80 marksman hunter, I can kill every last mob in the instance in a couple of hours, and leave with 5-7 blues, a handful of greens worth keeping to sell, upwards of 100g hard cash dropped by mobs, 20+ stacks of runecloth (I think I would have been able to make 453 Runecloth Bandages after my last run), AND if you put the blues/greens/runecloth up at the AH, most of it will sell (especially the runecloth), netting you another 100g or so if you're lucky! The other bonus is no competition. ^_^ Just make sure you put everything you don't absolutely need in the bank before you head for EPL, and don't bother turning Auto Loot off. It's way faster to auto loot and just start trashing greys and cheaper greens when you run out of space.
The only con to this plan is dealing with the Mangled Cadavers and the disease they can inflict that reduces health regeneration by 100%. It can be tricky if you don't have something to cure it with, lots of potions to use until it wears off, or a means of controlling them/killing them quickly.
Just farmed Strat on one run I got 20 stacks of runecloth.
If you're a pally you can do it super fast.
For a lvl 80, the best place to farm is by soloing Hellfire Ramparts. Depending on your luck, you'll get about 3-6 stacks. Each run also earns you about 35-65g, again, depending on your luck with drops wich you vendor..
One run takes me about 20-25 mins (Lock 0/40/31). Any class with decent dps can do it easily. Mages will obviously rule at this farm spot...
How much cost 60 runecloth's on the AH ?
I can only agree with what others have said. Assuming you're lvl 80 (or so), you can pick up very high amounts of Runecloth from Stratholm in a short time. The various debuffs is a pain for some classes though, but shouldn't be a major issue.
Two very nice places to farm for runecloth is Stratholme and Scholo. Another bonus of this is you can also farm here for Argent Dawn rep. With the coming of patch 3.2 there are extra dailies from what I heard on the Blizzard Podcast 10 that you can only get if you have your reputation with Argent Dawn, Argent Crusade and all of your factions at Exalted. Doing these two areas can get you your Runecloth for turn-ins with each sides cities and get you your Argent Dawn reputation up as well.
a full clear of strat yielded me 22 stacks of runecloth.....16 greens......6 BOE blues......a 8 of elements.....essences and orbs.......a bunch of patterns and recipes for the different profs.....at least 100g loot and vendering of soulbounds......etc etc.....no where compares to this for an hour and 15 mins...keep in mind though...a Rogue in tier 7.5 is still a bit squishy for the run so take some food with ya and be patient :)...reading all the comments that "its no thing for a geared 80" well its a bit rougher for us squishy classes :P
Just for the record, Zul'mashar is an absolutely terrible place to farm (AOE) for a caster. The Infected Mossflayers, which are the primary mob here (they spawn by running over the graves) have knockbacks which also stun you for a moment. As a level 80 shadow priest, I was near to death a few times simply because of this. Mass farming is not a viable option here.
Runecloth drops are pretty good here though. In 37 minutes I had 4.5 stacks. Not exceptional though.
Here's how I farmed runecloth to get exalted with my faction cities.
1) Head to UBRS.
2) The groups up to
. These guys summon NPCs that drop runecloth.
3) Pick a group and kill everything but the summoners.
4) Keep the summoners alive and just continue killing the spawns.
5) Collect runecloth until your fingers bleed.
Depending on your gear level, you can tweak the number of summoners that you keep alive. If your gear is crappy, just keep 1 summoner. If you can 1-shot the spawns, you could probably keep 3 or 4 summoners up.
I was going for the achievement, and in the first room alone in Scholomance i got 60 rune cloth GREAT PLACE TO FARM
I decided to try out the UBRS summoning area and I have to say it works pretty well. I made a quick video of it if any one is interested in checking it out before making the run out there.
Twilight mobs, on Silithus. I got 55 cloths in less than 10 minutes (I'm mage)
If you're lvl 80, the best place to farm runecloth
is the Auction House. I can usually get 10 stacks of runecloth in 10 seconds. One can get more than enough gold to pay for this by either: (1) doing dailies for 30 minutes, or (2) running a quick heroic instance and vending off any drops.
I'm not sure whether I am
unluckiest person in the universe or something but I went to kill the unyielding knights in Hellfire after looking at the comments here and it was %^&*
I killed easily 50 mobs and got 3 runecloth. So I looked up their loot table and it says they have a 45% chance to drop runecloth and I was very confused as to why I wasn't getting any so I bring up wow again kill a load more because my Hearthstone was on CD and I was planning to use it after I finished grinding to go back to Dalaran and I got nothing.
I'm not sure what's happened but it was
for me so I just stopped. I would advise against going there.
Then I tried Stratholme and it was great, but don't think just because your lvl 80 your invincible I played my 80 ret pally ran throught it once, got loads of runecloth but you'd be surprised how much damage you take from the mobs.
If your farming from Strat BE CAREFUL
Trust these people, Tyr's Hand is THE best place to farm Runecloth.
I went to Expedition Armory and to my surprise, all mobs dropped Netherweave, not a single piece of Runecloth. So I decided to go to Tyr's and it was spectacular. Each mob was dropping around 4 pieces and sometimes greens and trash that sold for over 4g each. The respawn time is insane too and despite being elites, anyone ove 70 can beat them fast. Half hour of farming there can easily give you 8+ stacks and well over 30g. There are two parts to farm in Tyr's Hand. Lower and upper. Lower has the Barrack, Abbey and Chapel and if you keep going up you'll find a church, which is where upper begins, with higher level mobs. Beyond Tyr has no mobs, which means that going to the Scarlet Enclave (where DKs start) is useless as there are no mobs there.
Truly a great place to farm Runecloth. I don't know if there are any quests there, but I swear I think Blizzard made this place to farm Runecloth. One last thing, Clothies beware, some mobs hit for 600+ and if you pull a bunch of those you might die.
As of yesterday, I can confirm that Stratholme is just about THE best place in which to farm Runecloth that I've ever found. In a solo run I did, (I'm a lvl 80 rogue) I picked up over 200 pieces of Runecloth. Of course, I took out all of the trash mobs in the living section, but by the time I got to the undead section, I was just ready to get the hell out of there, so I avoided the trash and focused only on the bosses and acolytes in the ziggurats. I was able to down the Baron with about 30 minutes (give or take) left on my debuff. Very easy to solo @ 80, even with less-than-awesome gear. Argent rep makes this worthwhile, as well, if you're into that sort of thing.
Dire Maul farm-spot is very profitable. In an hour it's possible to farm up to 10 stacks of Runecloth plus some gray and green.
The mob are very weak, able to one-shot they @ 70 in Outland green.
Stratholme is definitely the best place i found.. It's quite hard to solo, if you are below level 70-75 thou, but i fairly manage as a level 70 frostmage..
About every 2nd mob drops about 3-4 runecloth, and that's why it gotta be my favorite place for grinding runecloth..
The best place in my opinion is Stratholme live side. I can yield about 20 stacks of runecloth at the most each run, and if you do live and dead side (requires patience) you can really come out on top. Fudge waiting on respawn timers now that were level 80 and super geared its goes by pretty fast. Happy farming! If your lower level though as stated about you can go to Tyr's hand in eastern plaguelands(death knight starting zone) Tons of mobs Bout lvl 55ish and a really fast respawn rate.
A very good farming spot is Tyr's Hand..if you're level-capped you can easily kill the mobs,take little damage the mobs also in that area have a chance to drop the Crusader enchanting formula
For anyone who is wondering;
I was able to get around 4 stacks of runecloth hear in around 35 minutes with 3-5 greens
I took the time to read all the comments try most of if not all the spots and I've come to find out that
IS INDEED THE BEST WAY TO GET RUNECLOTH.
Either Queue for it, get a guildee or a high level to run you through it, or just beg (lol) because all the other spots don't compare and they're just a waste of time.
Easily 10+ Stacks a run and if your getting ran through it shouldn't take that long at all. Just don't be dying and go out reset and re loot it. Tons upon tons of Runecloth... I have so much I don't know what to do with it all!
Hope I saved some people some time from finding out for themselves because it took me 1 day to find out this and I'll never go back to another spot ever.
I farmed all my runecloth in LBRS. Two runs of clearing all the humanoids netted me the 40 stacks, ~200 runecloth bolts, that I needed to level up tailoring.
So I have had major success In gathering 5-8 stacks of Runecloth per run through
. It can be easily soloed by a few different classes (one being a Feral druid like myself) and it is Resetable! I know what you are thinking, why the hell is a high lvl character running that instance?
, thats why. I know they changed the rate from 1/1000 to 1/100 but still can take some time for the unlucky few. Hey! I can also mail the *cloth to my alts and power grind rep for them this way. ^,~
Think about asking for payment for runs to the Baron as the D1 sets drop a few pieces in here. I know I was willing to pay for it!
(5-8 stacks of runecloth per run @ 15 minutes a run = 20-32 stacks of Runecloth/hr)
Best place to farm runelcloth is the high dungeons/ raids Scholo is amazing harder then strath but more cloth and less trash blackrock spire is good 2 BRD is good but takes forever to clear so if u can solo strath/scholo rep plus cloth and lots of cool blues :D average per scholo run up to 10 stack strath about the same more bag filling bs though upper blackrock and lowe combined i think about 13 maybe but not sure.
Friendly to Exalted using only cloth turn-ins
For those considering using Runecloth to power level their reputations (I'm looking at you Worgen/Goblins!) I did a few quick sums.
Once unlocked, the repeatable
Runecloth donation quests
reward 75 rep for 1 stack of Runecloth.
6000 (Friendly) 80 turn-ins
12000 (Honored) 160 turn-ins
21000 (Exalted) 280 turn-ins
39000 total rep needed (520 turn-ins)
The initial cloth quests reward 350 rep each
-350 (60 Wool Cloth)
-350 (60 Silk Cloth)
-350 (60 Mageweave Cloth)
-350 (60 Runecloth)
That knocks 1400 rep off (~18 turn-ins)
So that's a total of 502 stacks of Runecloth
In summary, to level from Friendly to Exalted using only cloth quests, you will need the following mats:
* 3 stacks
* 3 stacks
* 3 stacks
* 505 stacks
If you're lucky enough to be a Human, knock off 10% (around 50 stacks)
You can say whatever you do but i'd say best place to farm this is Stratholme. You will get like 500 runecloth for ONE run. You get also lots of money from blues and Argent Dawn reputation.
Yep...For a lvl 80, Stratholme is
place to farm Runecloth and, as a side benefit, gold generating goodies!
Recent trip into there on my Prot Paly. 1 hr to clear everything (the looting takes a while!) yielded:
A whole heap of the 3 types of scourgestone (turn in at Lightshope for Argent Dawn rep)
Crypt Fiend parts and those bones which can be handed into Argent Dawn for rep.
Several BoP blues
Several BoE blues and Greens
Several white/grey weapon and armour items (often sell to vendor for 1 or 2 gold each)
A pile of trash loot which can be vendored.
As a side note, being an engineer is a definite plus. Stock up with scrapbots so you can sell the loot mid instance. Jeeves is handy for dumping stuff in your bank and MOLL-E mailbox is nice for sending items to your alts.
Unfortunately I didn't note how much cash I had before I went in so not sure what I made cash-wise in the instance and immediately after. At a guess, aside from the Runecloth which I handed in for rep, I reckon I will make well over 100 gold for the run by the time I have sold the DE'd mats I get from the blues/greens that dropped.
Quite the money-spinner!
The mobs in Tyr's Hand, i think is the best place to farm runecloth, theres alot of mobs so don't think you'll have to wait for them to respawn, I'm a lvl80 feral/resto druid....so obviously i was farming in feral and i would kill one set of mobs and move on to the next area and I'd go back and they were already respawned, i looted alot of runecloth! The mobs dropped 1-4 cloth per kill most of the time i was getting 3 cloth so i was happy. If you get bored there, head over to Corin's Crossing, not as many cloth but theres alot of mobs there too.
You can also run strathome, you'd get about 7 stacks of runecloth a run (solo).
Cleared both sides of Stratholme "Arthas-style" on my 80 DK and netted 416pcs (nearly 21 stacks) of Runecloth for my tailor in about an hour. I tried the Expeditionary Armory mentioned above but it doesn't even come close to the sheer number of NPC's in Stratholme.
Granted a lot of folks have said that Strat was the way to go for farming Runecloth. I found it quite painless to farm the mobs in feralas around Dire Maul. I acquired roughly 8 stacks of runecloth in a short 45 minutes.
The best place i have found to farm Runecloth is - Tyr's Hand
As a level 80 dk i did was able to do 1 sweep in about 35 mins and got:
- a little over 23g
- 149 runecloth
- 1 blue item
- 6 green items
- 1 thorium lockbox
- found 1 chest - had 1 truesilver bar and junk
- about 5g worth of junk
if your a miner there are a few thorium/rich thorium viens in the area too
I decided to run Stratholme on my 80 lock, full clear took about 45 mins, got around 400 runecloth. Approx. 530 runecloth per hour. Best place to farm runecloth by far.
Just ran the live side of Stratholme and got 6 pieces of runecloth, and 12 stacks of mageweave. Wonder if it's been nerfed?
Seems like the best place to farm this now will be Hellfire Ramparts, as far as I know the only higher level dungeons that drop this abundantly are the none heroic Ramps and Blood Furnace.
Now that Stratholme and Scholomance are low instances seems the mad farming is over!
With the new release of Cat, the best you'll do in all of EPL is mageweave. Bowman Mill mobs drop SILK. I prefer the NPC's outside Stonard or the Nethergarde Mines in Blasted Lands. The mines are on the left as you enter the zone.
It would appear that Tyr's Hand has also been nerfed for Cataclysm. Only get mageweave here now.
I dont know how drop rate was before but last few days I have done. Scholomance-not one single runecloth. Stratholme-10 runecloth <but loads of mageweave>. Expedition Armory in Hellfire Peninsula- 2 runecloth for every 5-7 kills. I am on a mission to find a good spot I will post later when I find one because NONE of these even remotely qualify as a good rune cloth farm spot.
Hellfire Ramparts is the best place to farm Runecloth period. I picked up 85 rune cloth in one run.
A nice area to farm Runecloth now (in Cata) is the rooms just outside of the entrance to Sunken Temple. I was getting up to 4 Runecloth per mob at a decently high rate. Focus on killing trolls, not snakes or dragonkin obviously.
When you've killed everything, enter the instance and head to the room with the trolls and clear that (they are the only trolls in the instance now). Rinse and repeat.
As of Cataclysm, stratholme is now an upper 40s lvl instance and now drops mostly mageweave.
Sunken Temple is now a mid 50s instance and is my new favorite instance for runecloth farming. Bring along a leatherworker who can skin up all that dragon leather to keep you company, if you want.
I've went through and checked pretty much every suggestion on here. Most of them are out-dated and not up to date with Cataclysm, in which case they don't drop runecloth.
As of 12/28/10 (patch 4.0.3a) the best place to farm runecloth is BRS (Black Rock Spire).
When the orc mobs drop runecloth it is usually between 2-4 (very often 4). The best thing to do is
go inside and clean out the very first room
go up the stairs and clean out the large room
. There are groups of orcs (4-5) standing together in single rooms which go down the length of the sides of this large room. If you have a good AoE spec and high enough level you could probably pull the entire room or most of it, which would be like 30-40 orcs give or take.. All of which have good possibility to drop 4 runecloth each. Yeah I would say this is the best place to farm for runecloth.
After you clean out this large room
best thing to do is leave the instance and reset it
do it all over again
. You will be very close to the entrance (like a room away), which makes this have huge potential for farming runecloth. Basically you can farm it as fast as your character is able to.
(The only other place I found that still was farmable on Cataclysm for RC is Sunken Temple and it doesn't compare whatsoever to BRS.)
As of patch 4.0.3 - runecloth is pretty hard to find.. But out of pure curiosity, I headed to Blasted Lands. The mine (to the north) that once provided weavecloth now have runecloth drops. After approximately 1 hour of farming, I was able to get 7 stacks. It's not great but since it is so hard to find, I would say this is the place to go. When walking in to 53.9, 12.6, head left and in the lower part, there are mobs to kill.
A nice little place to farm runecloth post-cata is a cave in the blasted lands (61.63). In 8 minutes, I cleared the cave top to bottom and got an average of a stack of runecloth each pass as well as a stack of big-mouth clams, which contain the infamous
After Cataclysm hit I had a hard time finding a solid source of Runecloth. I found the Bloodwash naga in southern Blasted Lands to be a relatively good place for farming it.
As of Cataclysm, the best place I have found for Runecloth drops by far was BRD (Blackrock Depths) I cleaned out the entire dungeon (yeah it takes a while) and walked out with like 40 stacks along with a lot of other goodies. I find the mobs much easier to clean out than in BRS. If you are 85 this place will be a cinch!
Since The Cataclysm most of the places listed here don't work. I found that the ogres in Blasted Lands give an average drop rate for a bit of light farming.
i noticed there is a very high drop rate of runecloth in silithus whilst farming encrypted texts for cenarion circle rep.
Much of the advice on here has become useless as of cataclysm as cloth drops have been changed.
Best place I've found for farming runecloth is the twilight camps in silithus. There are 3 twilight camps so you can loop over them getting constant respawns. Best drop rate I've found in cata so far.
This is a note to everybody farming runecloth, Ramparts is the
place to farm runecloth now (non-heroic). Just confirming the few other posts stating this. i can run it in ten min or less if i push hard and get about 3 stacks or more average of the item plus greens and boss blues.
I already said I'm in favor of grinding the Twilight Cultists in Silithus. Here is just a brief and hopefully helpful way to do it as a frost mage. Level 60 should suffice. Here is how I would go about it:
1. Get an arcane elixir or something equivalent to boost your spell power by at least 24;
2. Say goodbye to your trusty water elemental, he will take aggro from you and you don't want that, reassure him it's nothing personal and that you do love him very much;
3: Conjure yourself a refreshment, you will need it;
4: It never hurt anyone to have some mana potions in case you get in a pickle and are out of mana;
5:Now head for the Twilight Base Camp ( the one closest to the Cenarion Hold );
6: Drink your elixir or whatever buffs your spell power, cast frost armor, cast arcane brilliance;
7: Cast ice barrier so you won't be hit or interrupted much while casting;
8: Run around the camp shooting Ice Lances around and aggroing as many cultists as you can ( you should be able to pull around 10 with no problems);
9: Freeze their butts with an Ice Nova and, standing right in the middle of them, cast Blizzard;
10: Enjoy the mayhem and massive damage, possibly while laughing;
12: Rinse and repeat.
If by any chance you get interrupted while channeling Blizzard don't panic, cast Ice Barrier and Blizzard again.
By doing this I collected 6 1/2 stacks of runecloth, a few greens, over 60 twilight texts ( turn in for rep with Cenarion Hold ), about 10g loot or more and a whole bunch of stuff to vendor for around 15g in a bit less than an hour.
I know this will seem useless to most but honestly I wish someone would have told me how to do this a while ago so I hope it'll help some new Frosties too.
The place I got the most as an 85 shaman? UBRS. I was grinding other mats, but I'm coming out of here with 5 stacks of RuneCloth a run. Every mob seems to have a good bit on them.
My 85 hunter blew through the first few rooms of BRS twice and gathered a total of 13 stacks of runecloth. This is by far, the best farming place for runecloth, IMO.
Runecloth does not drop in Hellfire Ramparts, only Netherweave. I received 5 from drops at the entry, after which I was only receiving Netherweave.
Been a while since anyone has commented. This is after Cata. I believe that all drops in Outland are netherweave or better. No runecloth here at all. Blasted lands has some. Really have no idea where to farm this stuff at all.
Post CATA, Twilight post in Silithus. Right next to mailbox, vendor, and the post. The mobs pretty much keep spawning fast enough to get a rhythm going. Not too bad of a drop rate, a stack every 5 min or so.
I spent a few hours and got a ton of Runecloth—547 to be precise—from the Deadwind Ogres in the Vice area of
. They also dropped seven
Formula: Enchant Bracer - Superior Strength
. Fast respawn time on the mobs and a pretty high drop rate on the cloth. I highly recommend giving this area a try of you're in the market for Runecloth.
I just did hellfire ramparts in about 20 mins on my 85 druid and came out with 5 stacks of runecloth and 1 stack of netherweave.
This method also has bonus of increasing reputation with Cenarion Cirlce.
11 increase per Twlight Cultist kill
increase for ten
handed in to
standing behind pool near Horde flight master
= including 10% bonus from guild perk Mr Popularity.
UBRS is also a good place to farm Runecloth, on my first try I cleared the instance in 17minutes and got 12 stacks of Runecloth. The greens that drop there sell for alot as well, as they disenchant into Illusion Dust and Greater Eternal Essence, both usually very valuable on the AH.
I farmed on a badly geared prot paladin but should be easily doable for any class/spec, at 85 you can pretty much just pull everything and aoe large chunks of the instance at a time.
Having skinning is a huge plus when farming UBRS, as you can get alot of Rugged Leather in there which tends to sell for a decent amount.
If your looking for runecloth do yourself a favor and go to BRD is a freaking runecloth goldmine. there are even npcs at the beginning of the instance where you can repair/sell junk!
Just did Black Rock Depths, in one run i was able to get 290 Runecloth
For those who do not have high-level characters to farm instances with looking for runecloth, the best place I have found for solo farming is the Nethergarde Mine in Blasted Lands. All the mobs in there have a chance to drop runecloth so there are no wasted kills clearing out anything. With a level 58 frost mage it takes about three frostbolts to kill a mob without getting any crits, it took me about 20 minutes to complete a single circuit of the first area, and I got about 2 1/2 stacks of runecloth for it. This works out to a little less than 8 stacks per hour, and the respawn rate allows you to continuosly farm with no interuption for as long as you can stand to do so.
As an added benefit the quest item
Imperfect Draenathyst Fragment
also drops from these mobs, it is stackable and can be turned in for greens ranging from level 42-48.
As of Cata, the mobs in Strat now drop Mageweave instead.
As of 11MAY11, Noxious Glade mobs drop Mageweave/Silk cloth.
By far the best place for Runecloth as of 4.1 is Hellfire Ramparts.
Two runs landed me 180.
Silithus is simply AWESOME for farming for these. In 35 minutes I got 10 stacks of Runecloth, 6 greens, 3000 rep with cenarion circle (just from killing the adds) and 83 pages for turn ins.... /drools
I wasn't a big fan of Ramps (I'm spoiled by the Mageweave drops in ZF), so I headed out to Silithus. Despite having killed my soul long ago farming CC rep, it was pretty good. Almost out of old world tailoring again.Thanks for the tips.
As of Cata. BR Spire is LOADED with runecloth. Did first few minutes to find lvl of armor drops and got 2 1/2 stacks. Also, note the patch # on all the comments u see on Wowhead - it'll save u a lot of wasted time.
Sorry, but Ramparts suck for runecloth. got all the way through, and barely 3 stacks. Blackrock Depths I got 13 stacks.
Just did a complete clear of Blackrock Depths... 16 and a half stacks of Runecloth... Took maybe about 45 minutes, with a lot of breaks to go to the Grim Guzzler and sell. Probably could have knocked it down to about 30 if I just looted the Runecloth, and greens/blues alone.
4 runs of Hellfire Ramparts yielded:
If you're having trouble soloing the afore mentioned dungeons for runecloth, I found that the supply camps just outside Nethergarde Keep in the Blasted Lands is a great alternative. The mobs have a decent drop rate with 1-3 per drop and respawn quite frequently. Plus they don't move around or run away and you're close to home if u need repairs. Not near as lucrative as running one of the dungeons, but like i said, a good alternative. Happy hunting!
Some quite nice farming spots in Silithus.
In three hours I got 337 pieces of Runecloth. They drop from the Twilight mobs in 4 different areas of the map and I found that they sometimes drop about 4 pieces of Runecloth on one mob.
The only trouble you may find in this area is that it's fairly busy because of people farming Cenarion Circle rep.
It seems that they have nerfed the "pull entire instance" trick. I tried it yesterday 5 times with my Paladin and her Saronite Bombs - I damage the mobs walking on the bridge, they target me but then just stand there for few seconds and reset. Perhaps I'm doing it wrong?
Seeing as runecloth no longer may be used as turn-in for reputation, has it lost most of its value then?
I'm asking because I recently started playing again, and found about 60 stacks sitting in my mains' bank, which I (obviously) wish to keep, if it may be used for something useful.
try the Blasted Lands, you can port directly there from the mage tower in Stormwind.
I would like to confirm that regular Hellfire Ramparts is an awesome place to farm this. Any level 85 character can handle the pulls. Plenty of cloth drops, and it is a short, easy dungeon.
Today i spend 15 mins with my lvl 50 lock in Noxious Glade in EPL. All i got was 5 silk cloth and 8 mageweave cloth. Seems like blizz spoiled another grinding place.
I don't think this was mentioned before, but if you are looking for runecloth and some wild and crazy action as well, go to the Burning Steppes just in front of Blackrock Stronghold at about 34, 37.
Here you will find mobs clustered in groups of 15 or so-they are standing there like military formations and they can't easily be separated. Be sure you have a character that can handle that many lvl 50-51 mobs at once (they are pretty weak for their level). Good AoE, like the Mage's blizzard, is a must.
They drop alot of runecloth, mageweave, alot of coins, and a few greens and greys. Go there with empty bags and have fun!
I'm an Ally and am not sure if these guys are friendly to the horde, maybe someone from that faction could check it out.
As patch 4.2, best place so far for a lvl 85 is
. I made 3 quick runs (killed only first boss) and looted
11 stacks of Runecloth
and 2 of netherweave
Scarlet enclave (DK home region) is a good place for this. I got 2 stacks in about an hour of questing and not looking to farm runecloth at all.
Level 62 Warlock Farmed in Silithus south of Cenerion Hold in the Twilight Camps, can confirm this is an excellent spot
for someone who cant solo the dungeons yet.
10 Minutes of farming
2 Stacks of Runecloth
2 Sets of Twilight robe
1 G worth of greys
17 Cenarion Rep items, 17 of the Encrypted twilight texts go for 15g Ea on my server so if you want Gold aswell this in an amazing spot.
I even made a video on it
Looks like the latest update here is from before WotLK, so I'll throw in my two cents for cata: the Unyielding mobs in the Armory at Hellfire Peninsula drop a lot of Netherweave. That's great and all, but I can't use that yet, and farming those guys doesn't give too much Runecloth. I'm getting runecloth at a much better rate in the Blasted Lands, farming the drowned Glinean mobs at the North part of the Eastern coast.
Level 85 Elemental Shaman.
Ran Ramparts, 12 minutes, 5 stacks of cloth. 82g in Vendor/loot.
I think Ramps is the best if you have a lvl 85.
Post Cata the best place i found so far is the Red Reaches in Blasted Lands. Its the beach on the southest end of Blasted lands. Specialy for people that dont have lvl 85 alts and cannot solo Blackrock Spire or Hellfire Ramparts. I farmed for 30-45 mins with my level 65 fire mage there tonight and came up with about 6 stacks of runecloth . The drop rate is descent and the nagas there drop about 1to 3 cloths. Also the spawn rate is pretty quick.
Bonus drops :
, 1 from almost each mob which can contain either Small lustrous pearls, Iridiscent Pearls or Black Pearls which they sell descent in ah (mostly to enchanters for making rods)
which u can deliver them to
for a chest or bag reward which contains usually blue armor for Flawless and Green for Imperfect Draenethyst fragments.
Hope this helps a bit :-)
For those that are doing the Timbermaul Hold Runecloth quest, the highbourne spirits at Lake Kel'Theril in Winterspring drop the cloth. Not sure what the droprate is but it is close to the questgiver and I completed it rather quickly.
Got at least 90 rune cloth in one run of the Hellfire Ramparts on my DK. Really nice.
For Alliance, another great way to farm those is the BRD. For me it was around 6-7 stacks per run, 35-40 mins every run.
I have found to find
now is in
Ramps in Hellfire
. 2 runs through and picked up
runecloth. Enough to make
drops it. It drops
I just made a run through one of the Hellfires and only looted Netherweave. Am going to BRD to test my luck for runecloth
Guys the best place ever for farming runecloth is in Silithus in 2 places : twilight base camp and twilight outpost..look there for moobs and kill em. each one of them drops at least 2 runecloth and some times even 6... :D
Great farming place (as of patch 4.3.1) for Runecloth is in Blasted Lands just west from Nethergarde Keep. Kill Okril'lon Infantry
. They have quite high drop rate of Runecloth, they are on small area and they respawn so fast that when you finish last one there are already new spawned on the other place. I made 4 stacks in less than 30 minutes.
Patch 4.3 The place im currently farming runecloth at is Blasted Lands,more specific Shadowsworn Ocultists and Spellblades. Those guys drop a lot of runecloth so you might wanna try them out if you need it for tailoring or simply AH.
For players still "in their fifties" ... Found reasonable quantities during Feb 2012 on Cataclysm 4.3.2 (Smolderthorn PvP realm) dropped by level 56 and 57 orcs in Blackrock Spire within Blackrock Mountain in Burning Steppes. Enter through the round-arched passage on the Western side of the central chamber and proceed up. This was before entering an instance, so the enemies were not elite. Gathered 10-12 each time entering - encountered only 4 or 5 small groups of 2 or 3 enemies at a time, so overcoming them alone as a level 57 warrior was not difficult.
Hellfire Ramparts is amazing place, I took my 85 hunter (not a tailor) and walked out with 80+ a run, not to mention good number of greens each run. If you are lvling enchanting this is the place to be.
Yep, to farm these; Black Rock Spire is awesome.... but, if you have never been there before (like i wasnt)... then dont try to get the achievements... it is a real puzzle over there... and you have to get stuff to open a door to get to the other BRS (there is a upper and a lower part). But if you only go for the runecloth, you can solo it easy i than from lvl 60 .
If you are too low level for Ramparts (which my squishy priest was), the Naga in Blasted Lands are really good for farming. I am about Level 71 and just ran around as my Shadow Priest putting Shadow Word Pain on everything and running in circles to summon Apparitions. VE kept my health up and Shadowfiend was more then enough to keep my mana up. I farmed for about an hour, and made about...
70 Bolts of Runecloth
218 Big Clams (9 Black Pearls, 6 Iridescent Pearl, 6 Golden Pearl and 4 Small Lustrous Pearl)
-218 Zesty Clam Meat
6 Imperfect Draenethyst Fragment
And some Gold+Vendor Greys
There are little groups of naga, like the Priests around that giant holograph circle, the starting march of the Murloc slaves, the Gamblers and the bottom floor of the cave. Just rotate around those three and you are golden.
There is no doubt that Blackrock Spire is THE BEST place for runecloth.
After 2 runs (about 1 hour) I accumulated 22 stacks of Runecloth...yes thats 440 runecloth in 1 hour.
Also in those runs I looted 11 Greens, 2 Blues and a Dwarven Handcannon.
test results for BRS 4/16/12
on an 85 frost DK
4 runs in 26mins (killing+looting)netted me 189 Runecloth(9.5stacks approx)

aggro Orcs+everything in the hall, 3 little side rooms+back then lead mobs to upper floor=(Dragonspire Hall) and aggro first four rooms and AOE down, do top 3 rooms and AOE down. Leave instance. Reset all and repeat 3 more times.
I tried doing full clear this way but my computer Dc'd and when i logged right back in the mobs had killed me :(

I found that the Twilight Culists are a good place to farm the runecloth if your level is not high enough. They drop 1-3 on an average with a drop rate of around 80%. I farmed for around 30 min and got 100 runecloth with my level 80
As of July 2012. Plaguelands has no runecloth to any amount that is useful. Didn't get any from corin's crossing. Go to silthias or outlands.
As a level 59 mage who is levelling tailoring as I go rather than at 85, the Dreadmaul ogres in the Blasted Lands are pretty good. I got 5 stacks running around the 3 camps about 3 times. Not fabulous, but certainly nothing to turn your nose up at. Oh and I managed to ding to 60 while there too :)
As of 5.0.4 I still highly recommend Normal Hellfire Ramparts. As my lvl85 feral druid, I did 5 runs and instance capped, with a total of 350 runecloth and 70 netherweave. This all taking approx 25min.
On average this nets 70 runecloth every run, only downside is when you are instance capped and need more.
Ramparts is by far the best place to farm this in Mists of Pandaria..
Farmed over 500 cloths in less than 30min on my lvl 87 shaman. Did a total of 7 runs, with an average of 5min per run.. Happy farming!
Also, I got over 20 greens, several pots, and 3 stacks of Netherweave Cloth.
5 runs hellfire ramps as lvl 90 brewmaster monk, got 401 runecloth, 45 netherweave, took around 25 minutes combined time for the 5 runs. basically I pulled everything except the 2nd and 3rd bosses (omor and varuzden)
I was farming for runecloth for Tailoring and I found a good place to go is Hellfire Ramparts. You will get Runecloth and also some Netherweave. With one pass through I had about 4 or 5 stacks. Plus you can clear it jump right down and go out to reset the instance. Doesn't take long to go through it either.
If you are farming and don't want to keep deleting all the junk and things you don't want in your bag. A good thing to do is fill ever spot in your bag with just 1 cloth then you will just loot the cloth and nothing else =D Happy Farming
I just did Hellfire Ramparts and i got 103 Runecloth first run and 70 in my 2nd run and another 90+ in third go, so its and easy place to go for some farming :D
As of 5.0+, 2 runs through Hellfire Ramparts (regular) gave 36 rolls worth of Runecloth as well as some greens and some Netherweave. It takes less than 3 miutes per run if you run through the whole place collecting mobs and wait til you have the entire lower level collected and then AOE. Then go up the ramp, gather all mobs on the platform that leads to the last 2 bosses and AOE the mobs. Jump down from the left side of platform and you are back at entrance ready to reset and farm again.
I went to Blackrock Spire as a level 90 mage, I had no clue where I was going, it was awhile since I had last been on that dungeon and I just used Arcane Explosion to kill everything.
Results on 20 minutes time:
I highly recommend this place if you're high leveled.
I just did a run through Hellfire and did not get one runecloth, it was all netherweave.
Hellfire Ramparts Normal x5 (instance cap) personal time: 23 min 11sec netted 355 Runecloth 63 Netherweave Cloth.
Level 90 Hunter ilvl 466
I did 4 runs through Hellfire Ramparts with a time of 11:46 for all of the runs. I gathered all the mobs on the bottom and then all of the mobs on the top minus the 2 bosses.
1st run 101
2nd run 57
3rd run 67
4th run 67
Total Runecloth: 292 in less than 12 minutes
Tomorrow I will be trying Upper and Lower Blackrock Spire to compare which section seems to have the highest drop rates at the moment and will post my results of my runs and the time it took.
I am in the middle of farming cloth to level tailoring on an alt and I needed to gather ~780 Runecloth, if you are in a similar position I can highly recommend running Hellfire Ramparts. The fact that you finish right above the entrance saves A LOT of time that would otherwise be wasted running back through the instance.
A full clear of all the normal mobs including looting (not bosses) will take just over 3 minutes, after the 5 runs / hour cap (roughly 15 minutes as a level 87 paladin) I had looted:
(Results were in patch 5.1)
1 rare plate item
30 uncommon items
After just two fifteen minute sessions I had almost enough cloth, much faster than I thought it would be!
I haven't tested anywhere else but I can't imagine you will find somewhere with a higher rate for gathering cloth, the uncommon armor and weapon drops are also a bonus if you can DE them. After reaching the dungeon cap you can either wait out the next 45 minutes doing something else or you could try farming the humanoid mobs at the Twilight camps in Silithus.
If this has helped, please up-vote so others can see! :)
Just to confirm Netherweave drops in HC. Runecloth in Norm! If anyone is like me a barrelled into the instance in HC and got noting but Netherweave, that would be why!

first week of 5.2.went 5 times in hellfire ramparts(on normal ofc),30-35 min spent in there in total and got 373 Runecloth (almost 19 stacks) and 70 Netherweave cloth.looks nice so far.
is a great place to farm
post Mist of Pandaria expansion.
One of the best places to farm these is in Hellfire Ramparts. You can run Hellfire Ramparts in less than 3 minutes.
I run through the instance tagging everything I can, head up past the first boss up the spiral and tag all the mobs up there. Then hide behind a pillar and AOE everything.
Best part is, is the exit is right below you to reset.
I had 280 runecloth in about 10 minutes.
The best place to farm this is in Blackwing Lair. If you pull the upper and middle tech trash and AOE them down EXCEPT for the Spellbinder and then have a way to get out of combat (Invisibility, Vanish, Feign Death, etc) the tech trash will respawn instantly. By doing this you get 2-3 stacks per mass kill. Very fast and effective. Tech trash is located where Firemaw is in Blackwing Lair.
Not sure if it's been nerfed, but i only got 80 runecloth in one run in Hellfire Ramparts.
I know that Hellfire Ramparts (Normal) is supposed to be the best place to farm this - and indeed, it's good (I did it myself for leveling tailoring on an alt). But, the problem you run into is that you hit the 5 dungeon limit very quickly.
At the same time I was also power leveling enchanting and I ran out of Greater Eternal Essences. Being the cheapskate that I am, I wanted to farm greens to DE instead of buy them on the AH. So I trucked on down to UBRS/LBRS.
I followed the Removed and I actually think I like this place better than Hellfire Ramparts for runecloth farming. Here's why:
They drop greens that disenchant into Illusion Dust/Greater Eternal Essence/Brilliant Shards, which if you are powerleveling a tailoring/enchanting alt, you probably also need at this point anyway.
I got about 180-200 runecloth per run, about 2.5 times what I get out of Hellfire Ramparts (about 80 per run for me).
The mobs at this level also drop some very nice xmog items - I got a few greens which were part of xmog sets, like
, and more surprisingly, a
, which goes for around 5k gold on my server.

Only thing Hellfire Ramparts dropped tonight was Netherweave Cloth
If you're too low to solo BRS, the Drowned Gilneans on the eastern coast of Blasted Lands is a good place to farm. They have a good drop rate and are often in pairs, so you can double-loot them. I wouldn't say the droprate is as high as 65% as it's written here in any case, more like 30-40%, but it's the best place I've found. I've tried the Dreadmaul Ogres and it's dreadful there.
I was looking for Netherweave cloth in Hellfire ramparts and up to the first boss I had gotten three stacks of Runecloth. Hope it helps
I did x1 run of hellfire ramparts and manage to get at least 3-4 stacks of runecloth. But, on the other hand I did manage to do a UBRS and LBRS run.. I got at least more then 20 stacks of runecloth.
With the recent change you can now do 10 instances in a hour before hitting the lockout. With this change Hellfire ramparts gives you more runecloth per hour.
I farmed the entirety of Lower Blackrock Spire, and averaged about 6-7 stacks of runecloth per run. The overall length of the dungeon means you can redo it without fear of hitting your instance limit, and still generate some good vendor crap/classic enchanting mats. The mobs in LBRS are most humanoids and average about 20k hp, as a prot warrior in 493 gear I pulled two packs at a time and let my Deep Wounds from Thunderclap kill everything. Worst part of it was that there is a fairly even ratio of caster/melee mobs in the dungeon, so los is nice to keep everything stacked on top of each other.
As of patch 6.0.3, Hellfire Ramparts is still a great place to farm.
In exactly 50 minutes of intense farming in Hellfire Ramparts, I got 835 Runecloth and 127 Netherweave Cloth.
That is a pretty decent 16,7 Runecloth per minute. However, this can be improved significantly by skipping the last two bosses and having improved movement speed.
Hellfire Ramparts is a really good place as of 6.0.3. I did it on normal but it would probably be just as good on heroic.
You'll want to do
, for a couple of reasons:
On heroic, it is
Heroic has a lockout. You can do both, however. The heroic lockout doesn't affect the normal one.
Try farming in the Blasted Lands around 71,62 - follow that Murloc Trail of Tears and hunt the various Bloodwash Naga. Most drop 2x or 3x Runecloth.
Don't bother with the cave at the end - the drop rates inside don't match the outside Naga. Respawns are quick and the mob supply plentiful.
with a level 100 and got:
8 minutes in LBRS nets around 150-200 runecloth(a complete run). The arcanite plans on my server sells for 1500g. I personally prefer LBRS over ramparts. Even if I take it really slow in ramparts a run is still going to take 3 minutes. A total of 10 instances per hour, it just doesn't cut it for any serious farming. A run has to take at least 6 minutes in my book.
Short Version: Send your pet to pull the entire Hellfire Ramparts instance for you. Then have him drag them all back to the entrance.
When you zone into Hellfire Ramparts, you can see the end of the instance above you and to the right. This is normally the shortcut after completing the instance that lets you jump down and return to the entrance. But it also means you can direct your passive pet to
there. As he does, he will aggro the entire instance. Once he's there, tell him return to our side. He will run back, pulling anything that was missed along the way. It takes about 60 seconds for him to run to the end, and 60 seconds to run back.
You stand at the start of the instance, and wait for all the mobs to arrive; where you kill them with a Multi-shot or Barrage.
Your pet does all the grunt-work, leaving you to do more interesting things, like write about it on wowhead.
Didn't want to spend between 2-3k on my server for 800 runecloth to level up tailoring!
spent around 20-30 minutes farming Hellfire Ramparts and collected my 800 cloth, I suggest if you want/need to farm Runecloth to go there, can clock 1 run in around 2 minutes.
Best to wait till you have an item level of around 70+ to farm the Twilight Base Camps in Silithus. It's much more easier after getting to lv61 with 9 or more heirlooms set to BC stats. That way they're dropping like flies and less time trying to pick them off. Run dungeons till then, collecting Runecloth from them while leveling up.
For hellfire ramparts, Even a bit better, if you put the goto marker at the edge the pet should pull them down the hill so you can multishot all of them. If you have the fetch glyph your pet can loot them all and you save time of having to have it run back to you to shoot and collect
Frost Mage lvl 100
Hellfire Ramparts = 77 Runecloth and 14 Netherweave.
Lower Blackrock Spire = 178 Runecloth, 3 Ironweb Spider Silk, 1 Thick Spider's Silk and 3 Shadow Silk.
So up to you. 2 runs of HR or one full run of LBS.
Owlbeast's in S.E Winterspring, Frostwhisper Gorge, also drop Runecloth at about 45-50%.
yeti in ice thistle hills coordinates 63 54 also skin for thick leather it is south east of everlook
I f have found that the only place to get runecloth now is to go back in time and kill Dreadmaul Ogres in the Blasted Lands.
A few weeks ago, I was running hellfire Ramparts to get rune cloth. It was great. You would get up to 100 each run. I ran it today, and all I got was netherweave cloth. The first time I realized it was because it was on heroic. So I switched back to normal and reset the instance. That didn't work. I still got only netherweave. This would be since the patch I think.
So would anyone know where the next best place would be to get rune cloth? I will not be able to level my tailor anymore with out it :(
The best place I've found to farm Runecloth in 7.3.5 so far (I'm still checking out instances) is Lower Blackrock Spire. In one full clear I got 229 Runecloth.
An good place to farm now is the Blasted Lands, west of Nethergard Keep. Yup those mobs in front of the mines. The
have a good drop rate and they're clustered in a small area. If you aren't farming the usual
in Silithus, this is a great spot, especially with it's proximity to Sormwind if you''re Alliance.
After 10 min i got 55
. After you kill them all the spawn rate will bring them up only a few at a time, but each kill has a chance to drop 0-3
(. The drop rate is not stead, a lot of time you'll get nothing, but overall a steady supply.
I found that
was a good place to farm for runecloth. They are found in Shattershore which is southeast of Nethergarde Keep.
I tried the
and the Dreadmaul Ogres, but the mob sizes seemed small. The drop rate also seemed a little meh. I decided to search for other areas to see what their drop rates would be. While the drop rate in Shattershore doesn't seem much different, I felt I was able to kill more mobs in less time.
As of 7.whichever patch it was that started scaling, Hellfire Ramps doesn't really work well for farming Runecloth anymore, unless you get people to run it with you at level 58-60. Netherweave? Sure. Runecloth? Awh heck no. The scaling made sure all the mobs are now level 80 if you go with a maxed character, so going to somewhere like pre-Sword Silithus and farming the Twilight Hammer mobs not scaled for Legion in the camps around there is probably the most efficient spot as of BfA.
But hey, you can get those pages and get some Cenarion rep for the stuff in Ahn'Quiraj I guess
Have tryed silithus and lots of other places with humanoids/undead around same level mobs as silithus ones not the best luck on runecloth.
Anyone have a good spot in BFA ?
I farmed on a lvl 120 char.
So after my post yesterday i did end up try LBRS today and 1 full run gave me 146 runecloth.
A level 10 running HFR gets a different loot table than a higher level. If you carry a level 10 through HFR and have that character loot everything you will end up with massive amounts of runecloth, even though the high level will see none.
