  1. Mining is unique in that you can level all the way from 1-290, and from 300-375 (in WotLK) by smelting only.

    I would suggest buying ore from the AH and reposting the smelted bars. You can get a lot of skill points that way for the very low cost of AH fees.

    From 290 to 300 you'll need to find some thorium veins. Any old world lvl 54-60 zone is great for that. I do Azshara personally.

    Then wait a week or so for WotLK to hit, and you can smelt all the way up to 375 with the new Northrend ores.

  1. First you'll want to know what you need to find...
    Is a good resource for such information, then you'll want to know where the required mineral is located, there are many sites for this. One is Thottbot, though there is probably better. In your case truesilver is probably the best to level on. so...
    http://thottbot.com/o2047 (you can search for others on the site.)
    gives you a good idea of what maps contain nodes and where the nodes are likely to be found. I think that's everything that needs to be known.

  2. The following Link elaborates largely on good area's to train mining:
    It doesn't cover 375-450 yet though.

  3. Ah the old days of Thorium, this part of mining sucks. Youll be needing to do tours of the Burning steppes, Searing Gorge, Winterspring & Plaguelands for Thorium of both small and large varieties. It took ages for me to get to 300, then about a day to 375.

  4. The easiest way to level your mining is to go to the outlands.

  5. Mining is tough if u have the gold for it just go to the ah and buy the ore that u are currently smelting. looks like ur mining thorium at ur lv so i suggest just running around eastern and western plagued lands i collected about 200 thorium ore before i went to outlands. I think my mining is now at 350? Im not to sure on that exactly ive been off for a while. dont got the money to play.
    Any one wanna make a donation to the broke gamers fund, lol.

    PS check on wowhead.com for areas to go for specific ore veins.
