WoW TBC Mining is the most common gathering field for Blacksmithing Engineering, and Jewelcrafting making it the sole gathering skill associated with more than one manufacturing industry.
What exactly is Burning Crusade Classic Mining?
Miners explore ore nodes to find precious metals, useful stones and natural gems. Jewelcrafting can yield an even larger number of gems to be found. Mining can also produce Mote of Earth and Mote of Fire which can be used to make the Primals and other things such as Elemental Blasting Powder for Engineers.
Miners can also utilize the tracking feature Find Minerals to locate metal nodes on their minimap.
Most Suitable Professions for Pairing with Mining
Mining is the only skill that is associated with three careers which include Blacksmithing, Jewelcrafting and Engineering. This means that demand will likely to be high.
It's also utilized in an approach known as a double gatherer for players who prefer to earn money by farming, which is paired either with Herbalism or Skinning. It's simpler to pair with Skinning, since you don't need to switch between the two like you would when pairing Mining with Herbalism. You can't track mining nodes at the same time you're tracking other items However, there are mods that can help to solve this issue, such as TrackingSwitcher that can switch from Find Herbs and Find Minerals each second while out of combat.
Best Mining Classes and Races to Learn Mining
There aren't any races or classes with any advantage in Mining. In contrast to Herbalism, Druids will drop from their flight forms when mining nodes.
Differentialities in Mining Between Retail and Burning Crusade Classic
There are a few of fundamental differences in ways that Mining is conducted in Retail as well as TBC. There aren't many changes in Mining between Classic TBC and TBC.
In Retail Multiplayer, several Miners can collect a single Node before it disappears 1 minute after the first time it's harvested, an alteration introduced during Mists of Pandaria. In TBC the node goes away when the first person has tapped it.
In TBC, what you can mine is limited by the Mining level you have, and you may be unsuccessful at mining Nodes that are within the range of your skills. In Retail Skill levels do not decide whether you will succeed but rather what your ore yield will be.
The TBC model is that in TBC, Mining gives no knowledge. In Retail Mining, you gain an insignificant amount of experience. This was a change made in Cataclysm.
In Retail TBC, you are able to track multiple objects such as ore, herbs as well as fish and the entire range of Hunter tracking abilities. In TBC, you are limited to only one type of tracking at a given time.

New Outlands Mines in Burning Crusade Classic
There are four new mining nodes that are part of Burning Crusade Classic:
Fel Iron Deposit (300 minimum mining level )- yields 1-9 Fel Iron Ore. In all Outlands zones; the highest amount in Hellfire Peninsula.
Adamantite Deposit (325 minimum mining level) - yields 1-9 Adamantite Ore. In all Outlands zones except Hellfire Peninsula; most plentiful in Nagrand and Blade's Edge Mountains.
Rich Adamantite Deposit (350 minimum mining level) - yields 1-12 Adamantite Ore. All Outlands zones; rare generation of that Rich Adamantite Deposit.
Khorium Vein (375 minimum mining level) produces 1-8 Khorium Ore. Found throughout almost all Outlands zones, as they are the most rare spawns from the various types of Outlands mineral nodes (most usually formed from Rich Adamantite). Very rare and only found on the Hellfire Peninsula and Zangarmarsh; most common in zones with the highest turnover as well as high Adamantite concentrations, like Nagrand.
Alongside the core metal ore, Mines can also produce Mote of Fire, Mote of Earth, Eternium Ore and blue or green raw gems that can be used in crafting jewels. This table which shows the percentage chance of receiving your chosen items should you be focused on any of these additional mining goods. Curiously, Adamantite nodes don't yield Motes of Fire.
It is clear from the graph that jewelers should not rely on Mining for raw gems. Even the yield on the most reliable option, which is a Khorium Vein, barely squeaks in at just 2%. Prospecting is a much more reliable way to acquire the precious stones you require, however Prospecting Khorium could be an investment that will not yield a high return.
Route maps for mining within Burning Crusade Classic will be added in a separate guide, which will be added in the near future.
