If you’re going to farm for cloth why not do it AoE style? For those of you who don’t know what AoE is, basically, it’s when you gather 3 or more enemies at a time and use spells and combat skills that hit all of them at once resulting in all three of them dying in about the same time it takes to kill just one single enemy.
This results in a lot more loot in a lot faster way. Partically this is guide is going to tell you the best and fastest place to get cloth is. Keep in mind some enemies within both level ranges can drop two different types of cloth so some of the spots will overlap.
Where to Farm Linen Cloth
Linen cloth is the first cloth you’ll get in game when you start out. Sometimes it can be worth money to farm because everyone who collects it just sells it to vendor and it’s useful for leveling First Aid and Tailoring. A lot of high level players would rather just buy it for whatever price then go get it themselves.
This cloth is typically found on mobs ranging from levels 5-20.
Below are the best AoE Spots to get Linen Cloth:
|13-14||Westfall||The Dust Plains||60,72||Gnolls||3-5, humanoids, pull melee to casters at camps to gather|
|16-18||Northern Barrens||Boulderload Mine||66,14||Venture Co.||3-5 per pull normally, humanoids|
|18-19||Darkshore||The Master’s Glaive||40,83||Twilight Humanoids||3-6 per pull, humanoids, miners come off the hills, pull them to the existing camps|

Where to Farm Silk Cloth
Typically found on mobs ranging from levels 25-40 this cloth is one that is most likely not worth farming at all. This is due to the fact of instances in this level ranged being heavily farmed for long periods of time, especially Scarlet Monastery, where people will do 500 runs killing thousands of enemies that drop Silk Cloth. This creates an overflow of Silk Cloth on the auction house.
Below are the best AoE Spots to get Silk Cloth:
|32-33||The Cape of Stranglethorn||The Damsel’s Luck||51,91||Bloodsail||3-6 per pull, humanoids, you can grab up to 4 off the top deck or run downstairs and pull more from the bottom up top, and then go to the next ship|

|44-45||Tanaris||Lost Rigger Cove||72,46||Pirates||Even with the changes to this area you can still pull 5-6 at a time, they are all in combat but if you get them before their health is too low you’ll get exp for them|

Where to Farm Runecloth
Not normally a cloth you’d farm due to lower prices this cloth can be found on enemies ranging from levels 45-60.
