Gold mining node

Gold Vein

Gold is a metal that can be mined.

Mined from the rich earth of Azeroth and Lordaeron, this precious metal is commonly used in exchange for goods and services. As a rare substance that is always in short supply, gold must be dug out from the rock and soil within established gold mines. Many of these mines were abandoned when the orc raids began and the workers fled for their very lives. Since the beginning of the Second War, these sites are frequently operated while under the protection of military forces.[1] Gold was scarce in Lordaeron, even in the height of the Alliance's power.[2]
