There's a few mini gold tips coming via twitter. Simply keep an eye on the twitter feed on this page, or follow me.
|Volatile Fire may not be the most valuable Volatile currently, but give it some time!|
May not be worth farming. Check prices!
Like most Volatiles, also Volatile Fire has a fairly low drop rate of 10-18%, depending on where you are farming. These are not the most valuable Cataclysm Volatiles, so make sure you check their prices before farming. You can usually make more gold by farming Volatile Air instead.
Here's the ways you can make gold with Volatile Fire!
There's no point farming instances for Volatile Fire.
All Cataclysm Volatiles are time consuming to farm, and on top of that people will be focusing on the new "Volatiles" instead once Mists Of Pandaria is here. This could very well mean that a single Volatile Fire may go for even 20g once people start to run out of it. This same happened with Northrend "Volatiles". It's a good idea to throw these into your bank instead.
Seeing as Volatile Fire is almost free these days on some realms, it's also safe to buy a few hundred of these from the Auction House.
Volatile Fire can be obtained by Fishing. These can be fished from "Pools of Fire" in some fiery regions in Mount Hyjal and Twilight Highlands.
It can also be obtained from Mining nodes in Cataclysm zones. Pyrite and Elementium nodes awards the most Volatile Fire.
Alchemists can also perform the Living Elements Transmute, which turns Volatile Life into other elements, such as Fire. To create Volatile Fire, you must be in Mount Hyjal when transmuting.
This is always the most favored farming style. Killing monsters is easy and fast. Since Firelands patch was released, the absolutely best farming spots are in Molten Front, no surprise there! There's rarely any competition there either these days.
Kuja's Protip: Don't forget to drink a Potion of Treasure Finding before killing anything!
