the place with all the bugs (cant remember the name ) in the bottom right hand corner of the map their is 3 silithid lairs with 2-3 nodes in each and by the time you have done 1 round they will have respawned

I found that Eastern Kingdoms has more Thorium than Kalimdor

EPL

but really, unless you need to level mining skill to 300, doing quests in Outlands with a ghetto mount for a couple of levels is a better option

I don't want to go outside, it kills my framerate.

Yeah, if you don't get your mining to 300 before outland, you don't get to make any mining cash, so its well worth doing, and thorium sells for more than thorium on the couple of servers I've looked at.

Any 55-60 area would have thorium ore tho, along with mithril and truesilver.


So, Silithus, Winterspring,(not so good I think) Searing Gorge, burning steppes, WPL EPL.

thanks. Anyone know what the add one is called that shows all the mining points on the map? I already have catographer. And BTW my mining is 270, so for 5 more levels i will have to mine small thorium.
