Farming Pyrite Ore in Deepholm
The best farming advice you can get for Pyrite Ore is to keep in mind that it is a rare node spawn of Elementium Ore. Basically, where you will find Elementium Ore you will find a smaller amount of Pyrite Ore. Don’t forget you must be 525 in order to mine this ore.
Deepholm is the best zone of a “lower” level to farm for Pyrite Ore, as it is a level 82-83 level zone. As you can see from the map below, Deepholm is pretty much one large farming route for Pyrite Ore. Make sure you enter any caves you see and remember that you’ll also collect a large amount of Elementium Ore on this route.
Farming Pyrite Ore in Twilight Highlands
Another great zone for farming for Pyrite Ore is Twilight Highlands. Follow the lines on the map for the basic route to loot the most ore.
