This is a new ore mined on Argus. It is used to cut epic gems and for blacksmithing armour being introduced in patch 7.3.
As with all Legion recipes, there are three ranks of mining this element.
Any further info welcome.
New ore mined on Argus used by blacksmiths in their new recipes in Patch 7.3.
It has many different quests related to it:
8/29/17 I just mass prospected 100 Empyrium and recv'd only gem chips. I am calling this a bug for now...
I have made a guide where I explain my farming route for Empyrium Ore.
If you want you can watch the quick video by clicking
Empyrium Ore itself is used to craft new Armor with Blacksmithing, Jewelcrafting or Engineering.
Farming for the Ore on Argus is a bit harder because it's a no fly zone which means that you can be attacked by mobs while you are walking around, which can slow down your farming.
Another thing that is worth mentioning is that if you reach rank 3 you will get way more ores than if you would farm with rank 1.
The route is located in Krokuun. In my opinion that is the best place to farm for your Empyrium Ore, but the downside is that there are a lot of mobs and there is no way to avoid them.
Some parts like the Nath’Raxas Hold which is located at the north part of the map has most mobs packed at one place but if you want you can simply skip that part.
I do recommend to use a Stonehide Leather Barding because there are really a lot of mobs on Argus and you simply cannot avoid them while you are farming.
It’s also recommended to enchant your gloves with the Legion Mining enchant which will increase your mining speed.
Hope this helped.
I have mined two nodes of this and still have not received the quest to achieve rank 1. Anyone else experience this?

附魔手套 - 军团采矿
seems to stack on these basilisk so you can save some time on mining with both applied. Does not work on nodes however.
Anyone knows the respawn time of Empyrium Seam?
It's super effective!
I prospected a full stack of Empyrium Ore and got four gems. FOUR.
Apparently, this is not a glitch, and is working as intended.
Gee, thanks, Blizz.
