|Grim Batol is an excellent choice for some easy gold farming!|
Solo Farming Heroic Grim Batol
This instance is loads of fun. You're continuously fighting mobs, and should you pull more than one pack, they can still take you to near death very fast, even with superior gear. I would recommend to pull no more than 2 packs, unless you're in tank spec. Remember to use your shorter duration cooldowns when possible to avoid the need to stop to heal.
While it's originally intended for you to take one of the trapped red drakes, and burn a load of mobs with it, I would recommend against it unless you are doing one of the quests in the instance that requires you to burn things with the drake.
Not only do you save time, but you also get more loot from the mobs if you don't kill any accidentally with the drake. The mobs die fast enough even if you do the fighting yourself.
There's also a few spots where you can see troggs climbing the piles of stone. Many of them can be pulled closer with a ranged attack. They drop nice amounts of loot, so they should not be skipped.
You don't need any tactics for this instance.
You can find the entrance portal to Grim Batol in the Twilight Highlands, just next to Wetlands.
Grim Batol Achievements
These achievements can be soloed easily. For more information, click the links.
Don't Need to Break Eggs to Make an Omelet: Simply nuke the boss as hard as you can and he dies before any adds spawn.
Umbrage for Umbriss: Keep the Malignant Trogg alive until boss is near death. Kill the trogg and then the boss.
Counting the Loot
Like always, I pull all trash that I can find to get as much loot as possible. I do not use Potions of Treasure Finding to eliminate some RNG, but you should drink one to get tons more loot.
I don't use the Golden Fleece either, but it's a good idea to equip it for this dungeon, as the mobs are high enough level to give experience. One missing trinket does not affect your farming performance, and you will be getting more wow gold in return.
Here's the details and results from a single run
- Time: About 13 minutes
- Farmer: 560 Windwalker Monk
- Drops: 33 gold

"One of the best instances for Embersilk farming! Lots of other goodies dropping too!"
