WoW Cataclysm Mining Guide 1-525

Mining is a very important gathering profession, especially in Cataclysm. It's used in so many other professions and is a very good money making profession. That said, it's most profitable to sell higher level mining items since they sell for more gold, so it's sort of a waste collecting lower levels ores unless you do it while you level up. Most conventional Mining guides give you tons of maps and show you lots of ways to run around and level your Mining. I am not going to do this as I believe the fastest route to leveling your Mning is by smelting as much as possible. If you are thinking that it will be very expensive, it's not really, and if you really can't afford it you should take a look at this gold guide for ways to make more gold.

With this guide you'll level from 1-525.
