Many places to farm, only one is superior
Silver Veins are sometimes spawned instead of a Tin Vein. So in order to farm Silver Ore efficiently, one has to mine the Tin Veins aswell and hope they respawn as Silver instead.
While Tin ore is worthless usually, a Tin Vein can contain precious gemstones. Some of these sell for a lot of gold, and if you have jewelcrafting too, you can prospect the ore and turn them into low level jewelry which often gives a nice profit.
Requires Mining: 65
While Silver can be smelted into bars, ore is more expensive because it's needed by aspiring miners. It provides fast skill ups in the tin-iron phase when smelting it.
There are many zones where tin spawns, but after some research Alterac Mountains in Hillsbrad Foothills would be the best choice. It's a small area with lots of cliffs and caves. That means lots of mineral nodes!
|Lots of Silver and Tin ore can be found in the Ogre caves!|
