I logged in the other day to my level 68 Horde Death Knight and realized his pocket change was growing thin. He only had 25 gold and is a level 68. That was quite embarrassing. I decided to head over to Wailing Caverns and farm a bit. I ended up with close to 15 wool cloth and 20 linen cloth along with some uncommon (greenies) items. I headed over to the Auction House to put up my cloth and see if I could sell it. To my amazement, linen cloth was going for 15 gold per stack of 20 and wool cloth was going for 25 gold per stack of 20! I immediately put my cloth up and within 1 hour it was sold. The amount of gold made will vary on realm and auction house prices since they do change and depend on supply and demand.
My Farming Adventure
I headed over to Deadmines and snatched almost 40 wool cloth and 10 linen cloth. I decided to head over to Scarlet Monastery dungeons and see what cloth I could get there. After running the Library and Armory, I walked out with around 80 silk cloth. I put those up in the auction house for around 20-25 gold per stack of 20 and sold those within the hour. I decided to head over to Stratholme dungeon and see what cloth might drop there for me. I did the Main Gate and ended up with around 100 mageweave cloth. I put those up on the auction house for around 15-18 gold and that sold withing 2 hours. My guildmate told me to go to Blackrock Depths for runecloth, so I went with her and came out with almost 140 runecloth. Those sold in the auction house for 20-25 gold per stack of 20. I went to Auchindon and ran a couple of the dungeons there with a guildmate and came out with close to 100 netherweave cloth. Even though it wasn’t selling very high on my realm, I still made a nice profit from it. I went to Northrend and farmed and grinded quests there with two guildmates. I ended up with 120 frostweave cloth. I went to look frostweave cloth up on the auction house and saw that someone had put a stack of 20 up for 175 gold! I immediately put my own stack up for 100 gold and it sold within two hours. I only sold two stacks since someone came and undercut my outrageous buyout but realized that frostweave cloth seemed to be the cloth that will net the most profit in my realm. I will be farming and grinding for more of that cloth until I reach 80 and can go for embersilk cloth next.
Places You Can Farm For Cloth
So here is a short list of areas and/or dungeons where I personally farmed cloth (drops may vary depending on location):
Linen cloth – Wailing Caverns (Horde) Elwynn Forest (Alliance)
Wool cloth – Deadmines dungeon (Horde and Alliance) The Stockade dungeon (Alliance)
Silk cloth - The Scarlet Monastery dungeons (Horde and Alliance)
Mageweave cloth – Stratholme dungeon (Horde and Alliance) Zul’Farrak dungeon (Horde and Alliance)
Runecloth – Blackrock Depths dungeon (Horde and Alliance)
Netherweave cloth – Auchindon dungeons (Horde and Alliance)
Frostweave cloth – Northrend mobs and dungeons (Horde and Alliance)
Embersilk cloth – Cataclysm zones and dungeons (Horde and Alliance)
Cloth can be used for creating bags, armor and bandages. Since most people don’t enjoy farming, you will profit from that. Don’t forget to check your realm’s auction house for prices before you put them up. Farming for cloth is an easy way to make quick gold and increase your pocket change.
