30 Minute Solo Hunter Farming Guide
30 Minute Soloing of Classic, TBC, WotLK, Cata Dungeons
Time, Gold, Gear, Loot, Leather, Cloth, Tactics

by Spookself, Nelf Hunter, Aerie Peak. Update: Patch 6.0.2 Oct 2014

Hi, this is my personal record of the loot you can expect from spending 30 minutes in low level World of Warcraft dungeons at lvl 90. I will highlight the best dungeons for particular resources, and the most loot for time spent. Because of course some are out of the way and can be run up to 10 times in 30 minutes but with little gold, others once for big rewards, and can be as profitable as running dailies. So, my guide on how to make profit from others misery, which is surely what makes the world go round. On the other side, it's just some pix-elated distraction from your daily chores. There will always be changes in Wow, so this should be treated as a snapshot in time for a couple of years, but it should give a rough feel of the items you will receive. Its all about speed, so the faster you go with enchants, slows, rocket boots, the more times you can roll through the dungeon in 30 min.

Loot details are for FULL clearance including neutral and out of way trash. If the dungeon takes longer than 30 min, I will say. Raids ofc can only be done once a week, unless you decide to skip all bosses, and reset it. Heroic dungeons can only be run once, so they are added to the totals of Normal runs. Runs: number of dungeon resets in 30 min. Gold: from loot, and sale of grey, white, food, drinks and soulbound items. Craft: misc. craft items for professions. As for other abbreviations, you should know them if you are reading this!

Blackrock Caverns 40 80 48.5 2-14 6 20 emb Justice points Romogg - clear adds, nuke chain. Corla- let 1 add evolve, take down, repeat with 2nd. Karsh - move across fire with pet on follow to keep debuffs up. Beauty - kite out of lair, adds wont follow, LOS to bandage. Obsidius- fox, alternate kiting adds, with your pet on them, MM best for this.
Lost City 60 22.19 34 1-4 19 ember 11 SL 10 Trash need SV CC, even then pet might die. General Husan: MM with spirit bond, nature resist helps a little. Avoid the traps, shockwave. When he throws you against pillar, pet may bug and go into the pillar, and boss evades. Lockmaw: with frost traps and FD, might be possible to avoid crocodiles. Prophet: hits too hard at mo, suggest kiting when he has the 50 lashes buff.
Throne of Tides 40 27.64 1st boss: cc 1/2 adds, nuke back add, avoid Aoe. 2nd boss: avoid Aoe. Last boss: pet kites frogs. Avoid aoe.
