Gold Making: Transmog Farming - The Admiral's Den

Recommended Posts

 

20178-gold-making-transmog-farming-the-a

 

Welcome to my transmog farming guide for the Admiral's Den.  This location is one of my favourite farming spots currently, and although it is not among the most profitable areas.

 

Location:  The cave in the South East corner of Thousand Needles (Southsea Holdfast on your map)

Mob Level:  40-44 (Elite)

Average LIV / hour: 5000-10000g 

 

Notable Items / Sets: inv_chest_plate08.jpgSaltstone Surcoatinv_chest_cloth_08.jpgTrickster's Vestinv_pants_08.jpgSteadfast Legplates

 

 

How to get there

The cave entrance is located at (91,82) in Thousand Needles, Kalimdor.  As you can see from the map it is in the south east corner and very close to Tanaris.

 

The quickest way (although not available to everyone) is to use inv_misc_enggizmos_12.jpgUltrasafe Transporter: Gadgetzan.  Note this is a Gnomish engineering item only, but worth reminding you incase you have one sat in the bank collecting dust!

 

The Uldum portal (if you have it unlocked) or the Cavern's of Time portal in Dalaran are other options as well!

 

 

The Route

 

As the cave is not instanced there is no limitation on how long you can farm for (other than possibly bag space).  One of the main reasons I enjoy this farming spot is the respawn rate.  The route (as shown in the high quality minimap below) is very short and the mobs should have respawned by the time you finish each loop.

Note that I only cover half of the cave.  There is no real need to farm the entire cave as all of the mobs are the same and the respawn rate keeps you close to the entrance.

 

 

Den Whompers

 

The mobs you will be farming are called Den Whomper.  They drop a fairly wide range of low - medium value transmog.  They are fairly spread out inside the cave so a ranged attack will be useful for the ogre's that are a little far away.  As always bring along a inv_eng_mechanicalboomerang2.jpgLoot-A-Rang to help speed up looting the mobs from a distance.

 

The Saltstone set is the main reason you are here.  The chest has an average value of 15k and all of the set items have some value. The picture below is from August 2015, and with the introduction of the wardrobe in Legion, I expect prices to rise in the upcoming months.

As well as the Den Whomper's there is a rare (just after you jump down from the ledge on your route) called Strix the Barbed.  The loot table does not offer up anything overly exciting, but you may get lucky and grab a valuable green.

Wrap Up

 

I hope you enjoyed this guide to The Admiral's Den.  It is fairly well known to a number of gold makers but perhaps not so much to the general player, so if it is a new area for you give it a try!  It's a really relaxed farm that I can spend anywhere from 15 minutes to a few hours farming (especially with my engineering portal as the travel time is minimal).  There is rarely any competition so keep running that loop and I wish you luck in your drops!

 

Over the next few weeks check your auction house for cheap inv_egg_01.jpgSmall Egg and inv_egg_01.jpgNorthern Egg in preparation for my Children's Week seasonal guide!

 

 

The Admiral's Den is a simple, non-instanced transmog farming spot located in Thousand Needles. The mobs there respawn quite quickly and drop a variety of low/medium priced transmog items; most notably the Saltstone set.

      Blizzard has responded to feedback on the Delves, outlining upcoming changes and addressing a bug that has been concerning players.
      First off Brann is getting buffed, with a focus on his survivability, but also his general usefulness overall. Secondly, players have been commenting on mob respawns within Delves and it seems that's almost entirely unintended, as a bug made them respawn. There may be some exceptions, but enemies will not be coming back once we take them out. 
      Delves (Source)
      Hi everyone!
      Thank you so much for the great feedback so far. We are looking at improving Brann’s survivability and usefulness throughout the delves. It is also a bug that enemies respawn. Aside from some exceptions, once something is dead in a delve it should stay dead. We’ll also be reviewing tuning for different classes, along with improvements to the pain points that have been mentioned here within certain scenarios.
      Thanks again, and please keep the feedback coming!

      In a completely un-shocking turn of events, Danta has created another great, fast, and easy guide for a raid mount, and this time it’s the Glory of the Thundering Raider achievement!
      Here’s the first hurdle: you have to do this raid 4 times to get the last achievement. Previously, this would have meant enduring 3 more "weekly" resets, which can be tedious as Danta himself admits. However, there’s a saving grace! Until MoP Remix ends, the Pandaria raids have a daily lockout instead of a weekly one, as confirmed by Blizzard.
      The second challenge is defeating the boss on Heroic difficulty. But the rewards - a ton of transmog gear and a cool-looking dino mount - make it worthwhile! 
      So what are we doing all this for? Well, completing the Glory of the Thundering Raider achievement will award you the Reins of the Armored Skyscreamer , a pretty cool looking dino mount!

      Image Source: Wowpedia.
      Additionally, you have a chance to obtain two other mounts in the raid itself: the Clutch of Ji-Kun is a rare drop from Ji-Kun and the Spawn of Horridon which is a rare drop from, you guessed it, Horridon, and in another shocking twist, the mounts look just like the bosses themselves.

      Danta also recommends using the Instance Achievement Tracker Addon that helps keeping track if you met the criteria for the achievement. So thanks to him for another very useful guide and our brand new mount(s)!

      The War Within pre-patch brings significant changes to leveling in mid-July! Check them out!
      An Overview of Leveling Changes in the War Within Pre-Patch
      We don't have a release date for the pre-patch, but it should be releases in mid-July. Leveling from 10-70 will be much faster in the pre-patch. You will find a separate news article covering the XP nerf here. Every time you reach max level (80) with a Warband character, you will receive +5% additional XP on alts, stacking up to 25%. (Five Warband Mentors: The War Within) When you reach 80 with your first char, members of your Warband will receive a 5% XP buff. When you reach level 80 with your second char, members of your Warband will rece a 10% XP buff. Chromie Time now covers levels 10-71 and includes Dragonflight as the default option (changed from Battle for Azeroth). We've got some Riding changes too, you will receive Master Riding at Level 30 which equates to 420% speed. Player scan switch between Skyriding/Dragonriding and standard flying. The Skyriding Skill Track has become streamlined with most abilities becoming passive. It automatically unlocks for new players as they level. Dracthyr Evokers will start at Level 10 (down from 58), which is why you should create one now! The Warband system brings account-wide reputation for Dragonflight and War Within factions, Warband bank for sharing items and gold, account-wide flight paths, and the option to send currency to your alts. For more details about all the changes, check out MrGM's video linked below.

      With the release of the War Within pre-patch in July, the XP required to hit Level 70 will be massively nerfed and we've got the details!
      Average Change for Each 10-Level Bracket
      When the War Within pre-patch hits, leveling from 10-70 will become much faster, because the XP requirements have been drastically nerfed.
      Average change for levels 1-10: +2.56% Average change for levels 11-20: -16.27% Average change for levels 21-30: -15.79% Average change for levels 31-40: -16.75% Average change for levels 41-50: -18.45% Average change for levels 51-60: -34.65% Average change for levels 61-70: -75.80% In the War Within pre-patch, you will need 53.94% less XP in total compared to live servers to level from 1-70.

      Here we have a table comparing the current live and War Within pre-patch XP requirements with the percentage indicating by how much they've been nerfed.
      Level XP Required on Retail XP Required in War Within Pre-Patch Change in Percentage (%) 1 250 250 0.000000 2 590 595 0.847458 3 1065 1085 1.877934 4 1675 1715 2.388060 5 2420 2485 2.685950 6 3305 3405 3.025719 7 4325 4460 3.121387 8 5485 5660 3.190520 9 6775 7005 3.394834 10 8205 8490 3.473492 11 9765 8150 -16.538658 12 11030 9210 -16.500453 13 12360 10335 -16.383495 14 13755 11510 -16.321338 15 15220 12745 -16.261498 16 16750 14035 -16.208955 17 18345 15385 -16.135187 18 20005 16790 -16.070982 19 21730 18250 -16.014726 20 23525 19770 -15.961743 21 25385 21345 -15.914910 22 27310 22975 -15.873306 23 29305 24665 -15.833476 24 31365 26410 -15.797864 25 33490 28210 -15.765900 26 35680 30070 -15.723094 27 37935 31985 -15.684724 28 40260 33960 -15.648286 29 42650 35985 -15.627198 30 45105 38075 -15.585855 31 45590 38430 -15.705199 32 46005 38725 -15.824367 33 46360 38970 -15.940466 34 46655 39155 -16.075447 35 46880 39280 -16.211604 36 47045 39355 -16.346052 37 47145 39370 -16.491675 38 47185 39325 -16.657836 39 47160 39225 -16.825700 40 47070 39070 -16.995963 41 46915 38860 -17.169349 42 46700 38590 -17.366167 43 46420 38265 -17.567859 44 46075 37880 -17.786218 45 45670 37440 -18.020582 46 45200 36945 -18.263274 47 44670 36395 -18.524737 48 44070 35785 -18.799637 49 43410 35115 -19.108500 50 42690 34395 -19.430780 51 47565 36305 -23.672869 52 52600 38265 -27.252852 53 57785 40275 -30.301981 54 63135 42330 -32.953196 55 68635 44430 -35.266264 56 74295 46580 -37.303991 57 80110 48780 -39.108726 58 86085 51030 -40.721380 59 92215 53320 -42.178604 60 194815 55665 -71.426738 61 214540 58055 -72.939778 62 234805 60490 -74.238198 63 255610 62980 -75.360901 64 276945 65510 -76.345484 65 298820 68095 -77.212034 66 321235 70720 -77.984964 67 344185 73400 -78.674259 68 367675 76125 -79.295574 69 391700 78895 -79.858310
