WoW Dungeon Gold Farming Guide: The Botanica

Updated on June 30, 2017

I've been playing World of Warcrat since 2008 with the launch of The Burning Crusade. I enjoy gold-making and achievement hunting.

The Botanica is a dungeon located in Netherstorm, closely located by its sister dungeons (The Mechanar and the Arcatraz) as well as the famous raid Tempest Keep.

If you ever find yourself in need of another gold making technique that does not require a lot of time then you have come to the right place.

You can drop by this dungeon to test my method out when you are in the area, doing your weekly Tempest Keep run for the Ashes of Al'ar.


What are we farming?

In this dungeon you will farm the following items:

  • Green BoE Items
  • Netherweave Cloth
  • Sunfury Signet
  • Arcane Tome

These are the items that interest us the most and before you proceed with the farm fest, please check your auction house as the results may vary depending on your servers economy.

At the moment the prices on my server, Argent Dawn - EU, are as follows:

  • 1 x Sunfury Signet ~ 10 gold
  • 1 x Arcane Tome ~ 120 gold
  • 1 x Netherweave Cloth ~ 40 silver
  • 1 x BoE Item ~ 16 gold (in disenchant materials)

These prices are quite good and they might not sell like hot bread but they do sell and due to the fact that this dungeon is very easy to farm, you can run it for 30 minutes and get a stock of items to repeatedly put up on the Auction House in the course of 3 to 5 days.

Below you will find the average gold per run as well as the average drops.

Note that I ran this dungeon on a level 100 DK.

Gold Breakdown - Heroic Version

Time of Completion - 5 minutes (Entrance to Exit).

Gold Looted ~ 9 gold

Green BoE x 4 items ~ 64 gold

Trash (BoP Blue items included) - 60 gold

Sunfury Signets x 35 ~ 350 gold

Netherweave Cloth x 40 ~ 16 gold

Total Gold Made ~ 499 gold

This amount of gold is certainly not bad for 5 minutes of work. I also did not get any luck with the Arcane Tomes in my Heroic runs, only on Normal which you can find below.

Gold Breakdown - Normal Version

Time of Completion - 5 minutes

Gold Looted ~ 7 gold

Green BoE x 2 items ~ 32 gold

Trash (BoP Blue Items included) ~ 60 gold

Sunfury Signet x 38 ~ 380 gold

Arcane Tome x 1 ~ 120 gold

Netherweave Cloth x 54 ~ 22 gold

Total Gold Made ~ 621 gold

Again, this amount of gold is quite amazing for the amount of effort that you need to put in.

You can also get lucky and get 3 Arcane Tomes in the same run or none at all. After all, farming items is based on RNG and Drop Chances and sometimes they work against you.

Over All Gold Made

The best way to farm this dungeon is to give it 30 minutes every 3 to 5 days.

From my experience, it takes me 3 to 5 days to sell my Sunfury Signets and Arcane Tomes on the Auction House and these two items are your main money maker from The Botanica.

In 30 minutes you can run the Heroic version once and the Normal version five times.

Adding up the averages, you will end up with 3605 gold for 30 minutes of farming.

Note again that you might end up with more or less.

Additional Tips

I recommend using the Trade Skill Master add-on combined with the TSM desktop application to keep your AH prices up to date even while you are off exploring the game world.

I also recommend LootAppraiser which tells you through a pop-up what items are over a certain price threshold. This add-on is especially useful if Role Playing is popular on your server since you might find Rare Green BoE Items that might sell for 500+ gold.

Other than these two add-ons, make sure that your bags are empty and good luck farming!
