***IMPORTANT*** This page is not a WoW Leveling Guide, it's a WoW Mining Guide. If you are looking for a WoW 1-80 Leveling Guide, we highly recommend you check out the The Ultimate World of Warcaft Guide.
This WoW Mining Guide is designed to give you an overview of mining so that you can get started mining immediately.
In order to get started on your mining quest, you will need to first see your mining trainer to learn how to mine and you will need to get a mining pick. It doesn’t matter whether or not your mining pick is enchanted or not, just know that you must have one in order to mine. You may also want to invest in a pair of mining gloves, buy the cheapest pair or if it is at all possible, you may be able to find a pair that is enchanted (this usaully doesn't cost more than 2g).
It's worth keeping in mind that you will only find the nodes for mining on the side of the mountains, hills and some cliffs. It is important that you also remember that once you have reached the level 50 mining level that you return to the mining trainer so that you can become a journeyman miner.

Then you can go up to the north and follow the cliffs all the way to the Scarlet Monastery. Then head west and go south following the cliffs till you come to Agamand Mills. Then you can follow the hills back south till you get where you started from. This path will bring you to a level 40 or 50 miner.
