Farming for zin rokh
After doing plenty of research I have found out that Zin Rokh is only available at skill 450 or better.
That being said Zin Rokh is not easy to get at all. I saved up 1700 Troll Fragments and 40 Troll fragments. Not only did I not get Zin Rokh, all I got were useless common rewards that were worth under a gold each. It was really disheartening. So honestly, it is up to luck. Good luck farming zin rokh!
Here is the strategy I am currently using to get my Zin Rokh, it is very simple and effective.
So in a nutshell what you need to know
- Archaeology level 450 is when you become eligible
- Farm in Eastern Kingdoms
- Save all troll fragments and Troll Tablets!
- Farm all the way to level 450-525 without using any troll items
- 1700 Troll Fragments and no Zin Rokh
I personally chose to go to 525 and to try my luck then.It really is unclear if you get a better chance at Zin Rokh if you are at level 525, but I wasn't going to risk it. However for me, it did not pay off.

Farming for Zin Rokh Look Closely
I could have made a lot more pictures, but it is very simple. It is very important to start at the top or the bottom. After Farming Zin Rokh for 3 days straight, here is what I have come up with
Before this picture I had worked my way up to the top. After I got to the middle I noticed that none would spawn below me. At least not until I really started working my way up. All of my flights were really close and this was my last one. Notice one thing, all 3 are right by Grom Gol.
Pay Close Attention, This is a Great Strat
As you can see, after I got that last dig site the last of the 4 got sent down south! Great news for me, just what I wanted to happen! It took me just about 30 minutes, and my hearth stone was ready to go. I simply use my hearth stone and teleport to org.
Why Orgrimmar you say? Well the fact was you need it to level, but also it is really worth it. You can easily look at your map and decide for yourself which portal or Zepplin you want to take. Not to mention while waiting for the Zepplin it gave me time to go get my next level of professions, to increase my skills.
This gives you your best chance at Zin Rokh
After getting all of the ones at the bottom and slowly working my way up I have once again got them all together. That is not a terrible flying distance, so in this particular situation I did not hearth. I also do not think it was up anyway. I worked my way up to the top, getting several new spawns.
If done right, they should all or at least most should spawn above you. And when you get all the ones at the top, it is probably going to be time to hearth down to the bottom again. We will see!
After clearing those dig sites and other ones that spawned up North you can see what happened. Two have been shot all the way down to the bottom, and the other is near as well. I am going to go grab this last one and let us see where it is at.
Best Strategy for Zin Rokh
Wham wouldn't you know it all three right next to each other! This happens to me nearly every time.
I am a warrior so all I have is a hearth stone. And portals and things available to everyone else. If you are a Mage or a different class with lots of places to port to, use it to your advantage! My brother tells me he uses his DK portal all the time in Eastern Kingdoms, I forget exactly where, but I am sure you know!
Want to Instantly Improve at WoW?
I am 100% certain that the right mouse will instantly improve your WoW skills. The more buttons that you can manage to use on your mouse, the better! My friend and brother swear by this thing! I am really impressed with it and actually I am upset that I am telling you to get this! It might just make you harder to kill in the World of Warcraft!
