Where to Find Trillium Ore – Updated for Patch 5.0.1 – Mists of Pandaria
Trillium Ore is of the the three new ores to be released with Mists of Pandaria. It comes in two versions, Black Trillium Ore and White Trillium Ore. It will be the highest level ore in the game, with a mining skill requirement level of 600. Think of it as what Titanium Ore was to the Wrath of the Lich King expansion or what Pyrite Ore was to the Cataclysm expansion.
While there aren’t exact routes to follow for finding this ore yet it’s highly probable that it will be found in the Townlong Steppes, Vale of Eternal Blossoms, and the Dread Wastes.
Since this is the highest level ore in the game (or to be in the game) and since the Vale of Eternal Blossoms is the highest level zone in the Mists of Pandaria expansion you’ll likely be able to find a lot there.
Below is a map that highlights the general areas of these zones on the continent. Once actual routes can be drawn I will post detailed maps indicating the absolute best places to farm this ore.
