|Lower Blackrock Spire|
Did you know that you can find loot worth over 30k gold here?
Lots of different ways to make gold!
Blackrock Spire is located inside the Blackrock Mountain in Searing Gorge. It's entrance can be found on the balcony if you turn left when you're inside the mountain and came from Searing Gorge. For a picture, visit the post that is linked below.
There's lots of things to do in LBRS, and I've mentioned it previously too in this ancient LBRS Treasure Hunt post. This time I will go into further details on how to make gold in Lower Blackrock Spire. To take the right path, turn right. The left path takes you to Upper BRS.
Like always, one of your best sources for gold is the trash. So when you go farming LBRS, don't skip any trash. Level 59 elites have a better chance of dropping greenies, and at these levels the greenies disenchant into Greater Eternal Essences and Illusion Dust.
|Large Mithril Bound Chest|
A Large Mithril Bound Chest needs 250 lockpicking, so make sure your skeleton keys or bombs have enough power in them if you're not a rogue.
There's usually 3-4 chests in LBRS and they're all easy to spot if you're familiar with the instance. These are old school chests and does not contain only blue quality items, but give greenies instead and also have a decent chance of giving valuable recipes or even epics like Plans: Lionheart Helm
Arcanite Reaper! HOOO!
He has a decent chance of dropping
Plans: Arcanite Reaper
It's BOE so there's gold to be made selling it. You can also learn it and craft Arcanite Reapers, but I'm not sure how well Arcanite Reapers sell these days as I've yet to see one in the Auction House. The mats aren't exactly cheap either.
Robe of The Archmage
the Pattern: Robe of the Archmage
It's BOE as well, so that's yet another gold pile for you!
They usually drop a Recipe: Greater Fire Protection Potion too, but it's hard to sell and is not very valuable.
A single run can make thousands of gold if you can open all the treasure chests and have enchanting with you so you can DE all the loot. The more rare items, like epic recipes can sell for 10-30k gold easily, so your gold per hour is impossible to predict.
Here's my loot from a single run which took about 24 minutes with a level 70 alt. A level 85 can clear the instance much faster, although looting is the time consuming part with no AOE looting (Yet).
