I've told you folks that farming Molten Core is a gold mine and I'm going to go ahead and remind you once more. Why? Because I recently made ~10,000g for an hours worth of work.
It all started off with me being bored, thus I did what anyone would do, go back and do achievements ( I was on my alt ) so I decided to do Molten Core and pray for a Sulfuron Ingot drop. I flew to Molten Core, went inside and ran straight for the bosses. First boss kill what drops? Enchant Formula: Spellpower, a formula worth anywhere around 2-4,000g. I carry on and don't get another decent drop until I'm at the 3th or 4th boss, which happens to drop Recipe: Major Rejuvenation Potion - another rare recipe worth roughly 2,500g. I then continue on to Golemagg who proceeds to drop a Sulfuron Ingot which I will later turn in for the Sulfuron Hammer Plans which sell anywhere in the 3-4,000g range.
I ended up selling the Enchant Formula for 3,500g, the Major Rejuvination Potion for 2,250g and the Sulfuron Hammer plans for 3,500g. 9,250g made in under an hour farming Molten Core. Do keep in mind this doesn't account for gold drops, rares, enchanting mats and anything else gained.
Below is a list of every rare pattern you can obtain from Molten Core:
- Schematic: Biznicks 247x128 Accurascope ( BOP )
- Schematic: Core Marksman Rifle ( BOP )
- Plans: Elemental Sharpening Stone ( BOP )
- Pattern: Core Armor Kit ( BOP )
- Schematic: Force Reactive Disk ( BOP )
- Pattern: Bottomless Bag ( BOE )
- Pattern: Core Felcloth Bag ( BOE )
- Recipe: Major Rejuvenation Potion ( BOE )
- Enchant Weapon: Healing Power ( BOE )
- Enchant Weapon: Spell Power ( BOE )
But wait there's more! If you farm a mob named Molten Destroyers you also have the chance to make several thousands of gold! They drop an item named Blood of the Mountain which is used to craft the Sulfuron Hammer, these things go for insane prices at auction houses.
All in all if you're bored and are looking for a way to make gold why not go farm Molten Core for a chance to make 10,000g in under an hour? It's a nice change from camping that auction house! :)
