I've been getting a lot of questions about farming Mageweave, much more so than for other types of cloth drops. Maybe it has got something to do with the fact that Mageweave cloth is consistently the most expensive type of cloth to buy, and therefore the most profitable to sell.
Whatever the reason, I've decided to revisit the Mageweave farming situation. I'm not a huge fan of farming for its own sake, although I certainly realize that sometimes, it is either worth it, or required.
For this article I've decided to use a new approach. I've listed below a few regions where Mageweave can be comfortably farmed, so you've got options.
The Hinterlands is a good region for both Alliance and Horde players to farm mageweave. I suggest a level from the low 40s to the low 50s or more to farm comfortably. There are lots of other things to be found as well, such as Ghost Mushrooms in that cave to the North. Your best bet as far as Mageweave goes are the Vilebranch Trolls (Scalper, Ambusher, Soothsayer, and Witch Doctor) who have healthy Mageweave drop rates in the low 30% range.
Felwood is also a decent place to farm mageweave. Not the best overall drop rates, but tons of fast-spawning mobs to kill, so gathering stacks and stacks of mageweave is not difficult. The mobs to kill in Felwood are the Jadefire Satyr, Felsworn and Rogue. You can't really go wrong with these guys, as not only do they drop mageweave at an impressive rate - low to mid 30% range - but they will also drop Felcloth, which as you know is a crucial ingredient in all kinds of cool Tailoring Recipes. Or you can sell it on at the Auction House, it is worth a lot.
I will be examining other Mageweave opportunities in further articles, such as the possibilities in Stranglethorn Vale for slightly lower-level characters.
