Welcome to my transmog farming guide for the Admiral's Den. This location is one of my favourite farming spots currently, and although it is not among the most profitable areas.
Location: The cave in the South East corner of Thousand Needles (Southsea Holdfast on your map)
Mob Level: 40-44 (Elite)
Average LIV / hour: 5000-10000g
The cave entrance is located at (91,82) in Thousand Needles, Kalimdor. As you can see from the map it is in the south east corner and very close to Tanaris.
The quickest way (although not available to everyone) is to use . Note this is a Gnomish engineering item only, but worth reminding you incase you have one sat in the bank collecting dust!
The Uldum portal (if you have it unlocked) or the Cavern's of Time portal in Dalaran are other options as well!
As the cave is not instanced there is no limitation on how long you can farm for (other than possibly bag space). One of the main reasons I enjoy this farming spot is the respawn rate. The route (as shown in the high quality minimap below) is very short and the mobs should have respawned by the time you finish each loop.
Note that I only cover half of the cave. There is no real need to farm the entire cave as all of the mobs are the same and the respawn rate keeps you close to the entrance.
The mobs you will be farming are called Den Whomper. They drop a fairly wide range of low - medium value transmog. They are fairly spread out inside the cave so a ranged attack will be useful for the ogre's that are a little far away. As always bring along a to help speed up looting the mobs from a distance.
The Saltstone set is the main reason you are here. The chest has an average value of 15k and all of the set items have some value. The picture below is from August 2015, and with the introduction of the wardrobe in Legion, I expect prices to rise in the upcoming months.
As well as the Den Whomper's there is a rare (just after you jump down from the ledge on your route) called Strix the Barbed. The loot table does not offer up anything overly exciting, but you may get lucky and grab a valuable green.
I hope you enjoyed this guide to The Admiral's Den. It is fairly well known to a number of gold makers but perhaps not so much to the general player, so if it is a new area for you give it a try! It's a really relaxed farm that I can spend anywhere from 15 minutes to a few hours farming (especially with my engineering portal as the travel time is minimal). There is rarely any competition so keep running that loop and I wish you luck in your drops!
Over the next few weeks check your auction house for cheap and in preparation for my Children's Week seasonal guide!
The Admiral's Den is a simple, non-instanced transmog farming spot located in Thousand Needles. The mobs there respawn quite quickly and drop a variety of low/medium priced transmog items; most notably the Saltstone set.
