View Full Version : Am I just looking in the wrong places for mining?

Hey folks! ^_^

I know its been a while (month+) since I've posted on GS Players, but I wanted to mention that I got started in on World of Warcraft.

I'm playing a Human Warrior on the Uther server named Corbin.

HOPEFULLY I'll be able to continue playing WOW while I'm in Kuwait in the near future... so addicting. Heh heh...

Anyway! I've taken up Mining and Blacksmithing as my trade skills of choice. Do I have to get all the way up to 75 Blacksmithing skill before I can move up from Copper to a new metal? I can never seem to come across enough copper veins to mine out to produce enough copper bars so that I can keep plugging away at my blacksmithing skill.

Then again I'm level 9 currently and just wandering around Goldshire so maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place.

Any advice? :)

You'll come across loads. Don't worry about it.

Just look for rocky areas, and you'll find plenty of copper. Another area with lots is Darkshore, along the mountain range that makes up one side of the zone.

Such is life. At least I'll be able to equip myself when all else fails. :)

The guild I'm in has it's upper level leadership operated by the guys I work with in the Air Force and there is only one other warrior in the guild that goes on raids. I'm going to set up my talents so I'm a defensive warrior and play the main meatshield for raid targets which will hopefully help me snag some goodies.

As I said, I'm only level 9 now but theres ten level 60s in my guild and a bunch of 50+. Being as that I work with the upper level leadership they made me a guild officer... good times. :)
