|How much gold can you make by soloing End Time in Heroic mode?|
Solo Farming Heroic End Time
Let's start with the most difficult 5-man dungeons from Cataclysm. Usually dungeons are more profitable when done in normal mode, as you can clear them a lot faster, and can also reset the dungeon and do it again until you hit the hourly limit. End Time however is one of the dungeons where there's only one difficulty setting: Heroic. It's not an issue in this case though, as there's barely any trash in End Time. No Trash = No gold to be made.
Location: Caverns of Time
The run itself is easy and requires no tactics, but the mobs do hit like a truck sometimes. Make sure your instance farmer has some self heals, like usually. Clothies without a tank pet or heals can find it problematic to solo Cata heroics like End Time if they don't have high enough ilvl.
Your character should be level 90. Gear does not matter that much, but full timeless set makes the run super fast!
Show me the loot!
End Time is a small disappointment if you are after gold. There's barely any trash here, so there's not many drops either. The bosses also drop silly amounts of silver. However, at least they drop epics. Especially weapons sell pretty good to vendors, almost 50 gold. You get to clear 2 random areas, and if you're lucky, you'll get to fight the Echo of Jaina. There's way more trash in that area. If you get to fight the Echo of Tyrande, then you're not getting any loot, besides the epic from the boss.
There's also BOE epics dropping here quite often, but they are worthless if compared to MOP greenies. Better to sell them to a vendor or disenchant.
Here's the details
- Time: About 10 minutes
- Farmer: 548 Windwalker Monk
- Drops: 6 gold
- Vendor items (Epics, Greys, Junk): 123 gold
- DE'd greens & Lockboxes: 152 gold
- Embersilk: 1 stack
"The instance itself is super cool, but if you are after gold, there's not much to be found here."
