WoW Dungeon Gold Farming Guide: Zul'Gurub
Zul'Gurub is a former 20-man raid from back in the day. In Cataclysm it was reworked and made as a level 85 Heroic only dungeon.
In order for you to farm this, you will need to be over level 85 and you will need to be able to defeat one single monster inside the heroic dungeon.
Zul'Gurub is located in Stranglethorn Vale, namely in Northern Sranglethorn and it is quite easy to reach if you are on the Alliance side as you can fly in quickly from Stormwind.
For the Horde players, you can take the Zeppelin to Stranglethorn Vale and reach the dungeon almost as fast as Alliance players.
What are we farming?
We are farming the 'Hive Queen's Honeycomb'.
This item drops from a monster inside Zul'gurub and it always contains the following:
- Volatile Life
- Volatile Air
- Twilight Jasmine
Check the prices on your server and see what prices they go for.
On my server, which is Argent Dawn - EU, they sell as follows:
- Volatile Air ~ 11 gold
- Volatile Life ~ 7 gold
- Twilight Jasmine ~ 1 gold
Who are we farming?
We are killing the 'Florawing Hive Queen'.
This monster has 176k health and it is very easy to kill on a level 90+ character.
All you have to do is find Zul'Gurub, enter, take a left, pull the monster to you (without killing it) and when the Hive Queen reaches your place, you can kill it, loot your Honeycomb, go out, reset the instance and go back in.
Because this monster is so close to the entrance and the fact that it drops such amazing loot for the time required to get it, makes it an amazing place to farm.
Be advised that you can only get 10 Honeycomb's per hour as the maximum instances you can do per hour is 10.
Below is a video of my level 100 DK demonstrating the very basic farm route.
I managed to farm 9 Honeycombs since I already ran another dungeon and here is what I got:
- 43 Volatile Air
- 46 Volatile Life
- 44 Twilight Jasmine
Bringing me to a total of 846 gold for 8 minutes of farming and 1 minute spent opening the Honeycombs and looking at the loot.
Did you enjoy this guide?
You can farm this dungeon 10 times every single hour so if you got the time, spend 10 minutes every 1 hour and farm this location for some easy gold.
Depending on your server's economy, you might get more or you might get less but seeing as Argent Dawn is a High population server and the supply is always bigger, on a smaller server you might get a lot more for the same items that dropped for me.
