World of Warcraft - fast cloth farming guide

World of Warcraft, there are six types of cloth, if we understand Netherweave cloth, which is only found in Outlands (requires Burning Crusade). Pieces of cloth covered most of the mobs, but bolts can also be found in various chests and trunks can be found while fishing.

They are:







Cloth is very useful for all classes and all races, because everyone has the First Aid secondary profession. Indeed, anyone who not only can but must. Besides First Aid, cloth is useful to almost anyone with a crafting (as opposed to Gathering) primary job.

Cloth is obviously crucial to tailors to craft their wares. A limited number of leather processing and forging recipes also call for nuts or pieces of cloth. When an editor or a leather bolt of cloth requires blacksmith, he will either call on a guild mate, or, more generally, the purchase of the bolt from the local Auction House.

The best way to gather cloth, like almost everything in World of Warcraft, is to farm. Here are the best places and the top mobs to kill the different kinds of cloth farm. Please note that unless you are a tailor, the cloth to pick you up during your adventures should be more than enough to level up your First Aid skill, with stacks to save for the Auction House!

Useful Farming Tip # 1

You should always farm with the highest level character you must have the same faction (ie Horde or Alliance), the intended recipient of your farming efforts. This will save you countless hours of frustration, death, and under-par agriculture.


Humanoid mobs in the 5-15 level range drop linen cloth.

Westfall: Defias looters and Defias Trappers have an average combined drop rate of 76%. They are level 11-14 and are usually present in the central and western areas of Westfall.

The Barrens: The Kolkar Wranglers, Chargers Blood and others, located in Central Barrens near Crossroads, all have similar excellent linen cloth drop rates. They are mostly level 11-16 and should not be a problem.

All these mobs also have excellent respawn rates, so the place would be very busy for you to run out of mobs to kill.

Wool Cloth

Humanoid mobs in the 14-36 level range drop wool cloths. The mobs at the best rates are falling:

Hide Gnolls the Moss in the Wetlands. Moss Hide Gnolls of every stripe except the Alpha Moss hide his wool fall rates of approximately 36%. I speak from experience when I say that the respawn rates are incredibly fast, sometimes so fast you will not have time for chests that appear every so often in the camps Moss Hide booty.

Wallen and Deadmines Instance. If you're farming with a high level character, if you must, then you should have no trouble clearing one of these cases in just over 30 minutes. You must be between 60 and 100 pieces of woolen cloth, and a lot of them to start.

Silk Cloth

Silks mostly humanoid mobs in the level 25-40 range, some exceptions apply. Although they can be found in GNOME Regan (for example) and of the people in Blood Sail Stranglethorn Vale, the best place to farm silk cloth is:

The Scarlet Monastery. The Scarlet Monastery Instance, in northern Tirisfal Glades, is absolutely awash with silk cloth, in traditional ecclesiastical opulence. Going by yourself to Scarlet Monastery will yield more Silk Cloth than you can bear, and I'm only exaggerating a bit. Sure to make room in your pockets before you go.


Mageweave is very useful for tailors / enchanters who can create relatively valuable items to disenchant. For this reason, the competition for the best farming spot is usually pretty fierce. Ensure Useful Farming Tip # 1 (farm with your highest level character to be) if you really want all farm.

Deadwood Furbolgs in southern Felwood are level 47-50 mobs and have a combined drop rate for Mageweave of over 100%, meaning that if you kill 100 of them in the end you have more than 100 Mageweave. This is pretty hard to beat, and is also known.


Runecloth drops from Humanoid mobs level 50 and higher, all the way to 61-62 in the Outlands. There are several excellent farming spots in Azeroth and Outlands for Runecloth, and they are:

Silithus. The Twilight cultists, Avengers, etc, seem to be made of the stuff. You can expect an aggregate drop rate of over 35% of these gangs.

Western and Eastern Plaguelands. All Undead in both areas have excellent drop rates for Runecloth, and make an excellent farming spot, since you probably do not run from undead to kill.

Hellfire Peninsula. If you have the Burning Crusade Expansion Pack, you can farm Runecloth from Bleeding Hollow Peons (around coordinates 56, 70). They reportedly have a 32% drop rate for Runecloth. The indomitable footmen, knights and wizards in the Expedition Armory (just south of Honor Hold) also have an exceptionally good Runecloth drop rates.


Almost all humanoids in the Outlands drop Netherweave, as it is - for now - the top of the list as far as curtain rises. The best drop rates for level 70 and up mobs in Netherstorm, but there is one exception:

Voidspawns. The Voidspawns resemble the Warlock Voidwalker. They are not too hard to kill and can be found around the large diamond Southwest dominates Nagrand. The Voidspawns in the level 64-66 range, and drop Netherweave at a combined rate of approximately 79%

Useful Farming Tip # 2

As agriculture, whatever it is, make sure your pockets are empty. This is especially true around level 50 and higher. The 'gray' vendor trash items you pick up will more than pay for your repairs and if you're lucky, a tidy profit on top of that.
