Loot Hunters - Solo Farming The Bastion of Twilight 25 - WoW Gold Guide

Many older raids become very easy to solo at level 100 with any class or spec, especially with the recent buff to soloing older content. We haven't yet solo farmed any Cataclysm raids, but now when level cap has raised, it gives us a good reason to pay a visit to these. Let's start with Bastion of Twilight in 25 player mode where loot is more abundant.

How much wow gold can you make by soloing the instance in 25 player mode?

Soloing The Bastion of Twilight
This raid has became trivial, and if you are max level, have self heals and good gear, you can usually pull a whole room at a time, making this instance super fast to clear.

Bosses also go down in no time, and require no tactics whatsoever. There's also tons of trash here, but unlike usually, bosses will be your main source of gold this time around, unless you get lucky with BOE drops.

HC mode is easily soloable, but gold wise there's not much difference.

There are only 4 bosses here, so even if you have bad gear, it's a very fast instance to clear. But with so few bosses, is there a lot of wow gold to be made here?

The run took about 12 minutes, and here's the loot that was found:

170g from gold drops
459g from vendor junk (Greys, epics, green weapons)
58g from green armor (Disenchant)
54g from Embersilk Cloth
29g from Volatiles
56g from Elementium Lockbox

Grand total = 826 gold

And like usually, many trade goods can be put into better use than just sold in the auction house. Especially cloth, as it can be turned into bags with Tailoring. If you have enchanting available, check the prices for Hypnotic Dust and Celestial Essences and compare them to the vendor price before deciding whether to sell or disenchant greenies. Most greenies give 2-5 usually. Weapons give essences, armor gives dust.

How do I get to The Bastion of Twilight?
Getting to the instance is very fast if you have done some questing in Twilight Highlands. If so, you can grab the portal to Twilight Highlands from your capital city.

Otherwise you have to grab a taxi ride there.

During the pre patch of warlords i would farm this everyday, mostly for greens and the boe epics to sell. i would clear the first room only and then reset / repeat. untill i reached the instance cap. now, while there are better places to farm greens and cloth this was very fast and simple, and the epics where just a bonus. although the price on them has dropped a fair amount, they are still worth selling for the extra bit of gold
