This is a condensed version, with one or two slight alterations by me (Highlander).

1 - 25
Rough Sharpening Stones (1 x Rough Stone) x 50

25 - 45
Rough Grinding Stones (2 x Rough Stone) x 20

45 - 75
Copper Chain Belt (6 x Copper Bar) x 30

185 - 200
Golden Scale Bracers (5 x Steel Bar, 2 x Heavy Grinding Stone) x 15

200 - 210
Solid Grinding Stone (4 x Solid Stone) x 20

Now would be a good time to start the Mithril Order quest chain if your a completist. You'll also get a few skill up points by doing it, but the amount of Mithril needed to complete the chain is annoying.
See http://forums.wow-europe.com/thread.html?topicId=13121383&pageNo=1&sid=1#3 for a walk through.

210 - 215
Golden Scale Bracers (5 x Steel Bar, 2 x Heavy Grinding Stone) x 5

215 - 235
Steel Plate Helm (14 x Steel Bar, 1 x Solid Grinding Stone) x 20

Alternatively, you could go and buy the plans for Mithril Scale Bracers from either Gharash in Stonard, Swamp of Sorrows or from Harggan in Aeries Peak, The Hinterlands. It's a limited supply recipe, so you may have to try a few times. It works out cheaper to make these than Steel Plate Helms.

235 - 250
Mithril Coif (10 x Mithril Bar, 6 x Mageweave Cloth) x 15
If your lucky enough to get the Mithril Spurs plans, then make those till they turn grey at 275. It's by far the cheapest way to level. Unfortunately the plans are now selling for anywhere up to 300g since TBC was released.

250 - 260
Dense Sharpening Stones (1 x Dense Stone) x 20

Whilst your grinding for the mats for the 260-265 part, keep an eye on the AH for either the Thorium Belt or Bracers plans. As these are much, much easier and cheaper to make

260 - 265
Armoursmiths make the following:
Earthforged Leggings (16 x Mithril Bar, 2 x Core of Earth) x 5

Weaponsmiths make any of the following:
Light Earthforged Blade (12 x Mithril Bar, 4 x Core of Earth) x 5
Light Emberforged Hammer (12 x Mithril Bar, 4 x Heart of Fire) x 5
Light Skyforged Axe (12 x Mithril Bar, 4 x Breath of Wind) x 5

Go see Derotain Mudsipper in Gadgetzan and give him Thorium Bars untill you get the plans for the Imperial Plate Belt, Bracers and Boots.
Should be about 50 Thorium Bars, but if you want the whole set, it's 130 bars.

265 - 275
Imperial Plate Belt (10 x Thorium Bar, 6 x Rugged Leather) x 10

275 - 295
Imperial Plate Bracers (12 x Thorium Bar) x 20

295 - 300
Imperial Plate Boots (18 x Thorium Bar) x 5


Approximate Materials Required

Fishing and Cooking 1 to 300 Guide by Highlander on EU-Terenas

Firstly let me put the next sentence in capitals as it's a fairly important concept to grasp.

IT DOES NOT MATTER WHERE YOU FISH, YOUR SKILL UP RATE WILL NOT CHANGE. YOUR SKILL UP RATE IS DETERMINED BY THE NUMBER OF SUCCESSFUL CATCHES, NOT BY THE AREA YOU FISH IN OR BY THE QUALITY OF FISH THAT YOU CATCH

So, with that knowledge, you'll realise that you can skill up fishing from 1 to 300 by fishing the water of your faction’s city. The reason for the different locations mentioned in this guide, is for you to be able to skill up your cooking as well.

I've combined both fishing and cooking in this guide, as they compliment each other very well and if your going to skill up your fishing, you might as well skill up your cooking with all the fish you'll be catching.

N.B. it will take you around 5 hours to skill up from 1 to 300 in fishing, so prepare yourself :)
N.B.2. Your cooking will always level faster than your fishing. You'll have to make use of lures even more when the gap between your fishing and cooking increases. Typically, by the time I've reached 300 cooking, my fishing is anywhere between 230 and 250.

Also, please be aware that this is not a fully comprehensive guide to both cooking and fishing and was never intended to be. The sole purpose of this guide is to level up your cooking and fishing in the quickest way possible. If you want a guide that covers almost everything about these two skills then please check out Draznar's excellent guides here:

Fishing - http://wow.toshimo.com/viewtopic.php?t=272
Cooking - http://wow.toshimo.com/viewtopic.php?t=273



So let's start:

Go to your fishing trainer and cook and pick up Fishing and Cooking skills.
Buy a fishing rod and a stack of shiny baubles (a lure that adds +25 to your fishing skill).
Your now ready to begin.

Horde

Best place to start is in Bloodhoof Village in Mulgore.
Go speak to Harn Longcast and buy Brilliant Smallfish and Longjaw Mud Snapper recipes off of him. Now start fishing in Stonebull Lake.
Equip your rod and then apply the shiny bauble lure to it, as this will make catching fish easier. You’ll want to catch about 60 Brilliant Smallfish and this should take about 40 minutes. You'll find that by the time you have caught 60 Brilliant Smallfish, you'll also have about 30 Longjaw Mud Snappers. Once you have 60, cook them. You can either build your own fire or jog back to Harn Longcast and use the fire in front of him. Cook the Brilliant Smallfish, then at level 50 start cooking Longjaw Mud Snappers (after learning the recipe you bought earlier).
You'll need to go and catch Longjaw Mud Snappers now and the best place for these is the pond in Orgrimmar by Lumark the Fishing trainer (I know you've been catching quite a few where you are, but the "drop rate" is a lot better in Orgrimmar).
Between levels 50 and 75 go learn journeyman fishing and cooking.
You'll now need to catch about 30 Longjaw Mud Snappers to get your cooking up to 100.
Now go to Tarren Mill in Hillsbrad and buy Bristle Whisker Catfish recipe off of Derak Nightfall.
Go to the river to the East of Tarren Mill and fish for Bristle Whisker Catfish. Depending on your cooking level, your going to need about 80-100 of these to get it up to 175.
Between levels 125 and 150 go to Shadowprey Village in Desolace and buy Expert Cookbook. You'll need to go to Booty Bay and buy a book for your Fishing level. Speak to Old Man Hemming and buy the book Expert Fishing: The Bass and You.
Once your up to 175 cooking, go to Shadowprey Village in Desolace. Speak to Wulan and buy Mithril Head Trout recipe and start fishing on the pier there. Your going to need about 60 of these to get your cooking up to level 225.

At this point you should now have level 225 fishing and level 225 cooking. If your not level 35 yet, then this is as far as you can go. If you are level 35+ then you have two quests to complete before you can continue.
First quest: Cooking
Requirements: Level 35, 225 Cooking.

Go to Gadgetzan in Tanaris and speak to Dirge Quikcleave. He is in the tavern. He'll want you to bring him 12 Giant Eggs, 10 Zesty Clam Meat and 20 Alterac Swiss. You should actually be able to buy the eggs and clam meat off of AH, but in case you can't here's where to find them. Now according to the quest Giant Eggs drop off of Rocs in Tanaris or any large bird. The best place I found for the eggs, was the Owlbeasts in The Hinterlands. Only needed to kill about 20 of these to get my 12 eggs. They are about level 43 ish, so if your not that high a level, get help or wait till you can handle them. The clam meat comes from clams, naturally! Well to save you swimming around the sea looking for clams, your better off killing turtles at Steamwheedle Port or Raventusk Village. The drop rate is quite high and you'll have your clam meat in no time. The levels are 41 ish for Steamwheedle Port and 49-50 for Raventusk Village. The Alterac Swiss is the easiest part. Go to Freewind Post in Thousand Needles and buy them off of the Inn Keeper. Hand them all in and you'll get your Artisan Cooking.

Second Quest: Fishing
Requirements: Level 35, 225 Fishing.

You need to go and find Nat Pagle in Dustwallow Marsh. He is standing on a small island to the West of Theramore (58,60). He'll ask you to catch four rare fishes for him. This quest is actually really easy and the only hard part is the amount of travelling involved. The fish you need to catch are:

Feralas Ahi - If you ride out West from Camp Mojache and fish the Verdantis River where the small bridge is by the Ogres, you'll soon catch one.

Sar'theris Striker - Ride a little South out of Shadowprey Village and your there. Make sure the area comes up as Sar'theris Strand.

Savage Coast Blue Saffin - Just outside Grom'gol Base Camp. Make sure the area comes up as Savage Coast.

Misty Reed Mahi Mahi - Directly East from Stonnard. Just avoid the Murlocs.

You should catch these fish within 5 to 10 casts at each location. So it wont take long. The best order I've found to do this quest in is; (assuming you don't already have all the flight paths) From Dustwallow, ride to the Great Lift and then head West through Thousand Needles to Camp Mojache in Feralas - From Feralas, ride North West into Desolace and onto Shadowprey Village - From Desolace, fly to Thunderbluff - Fly to XR - Fly to Orgrimmar - Get Zeppelin to Grom’gol Base Camp - Ride North to Duskwood - Ride East to Deadwind Pass - Ride through Deadwind Pass to Swamp of Sorrows.
Now go back to Nat and get your Artisan Fishing.
There is apparently a bug with this quest, if go away from Nat BEFORE getting your fishing level to 226, the quest can bug and you'll be stuck on 225 for good. Didn't happen to me, but I've seen a few posts from people who it's happened to.

Ok, so your now at level 225 in both cooking and fishing and you've done your Artisan quests. Time for the home stretch.

Go to Steamwheedle port and speak to Gikkix, You'll want to buy the following two recipes: Spotted Yellowtail and Poached Sunscale Salmon (Sunscale Salmon can only be caught between 0600 and 1800 game time).
Now go to Raventusk Village in the Hinterlands and fish for Spotted Yellowtails. You'll need about 30 to get your cooking from 225 to 250.
Now go to Bloodvenom Falls in Felwood and fish for Sunscale Salmon. You'll need about 30 to get your cooking from 250 to 275.
Now go to Camp Mojache in Feralas and speak to Sheendra Tallgrass and buy the recipe for Mightfish Steak. Whilst your there buy about 40 Hot Spices and 40 Soothing Spices as your going to be making the food that you will want as a level 60 (without going into instances that is). It gives a +10 stamina buff for 15mins which is always helpful.
Now go to Scalebeard's Cave in Azshara (its one of the islands to the East) and fish for Mightfish. You'll need about 30 to get your cooking from 275 to 300. You may need to bring some lures with you at this point, as your cooking will level up faster than your fishing and Azshara is a 250+ fishing zone. Once your cooking is a 300, keep fishing till you've maxed out that too. It will take 7 to 10 catches to get one skill up at this point, so take your time.
Alliance

Best place to start is in Elwynn Forest.
Go speak to Tharynn Bouden in Goldshire and buy the recipes for Brilliant Smallfish and Longjaw Mud Snappers. Now start fishing in Crystal Lake.
You'll want to catch about 60 Brilliant Smallfish to get your cooking from 1 to 50.
Now go to Stormwind City and fish the canals for Longjaw Mud Snappers. You'll need about 50 of them to raise your cooking to 100.
Between levels 50 and 75 go learn journeyman fishing and cooking.
Now go to Southshore and speak to Lindea Rabonne and buy the recipes for Bristle Whisker Catfish and Mithril Head Trout.
Go to the river to the east of Southshore and fish for Bristle Whisker Catfish. You'll need about 80-100 of these to get your cooking to level 175.
Between levels 125 and 150 go to Shandrina by Mystral Lake in Ashenvale and buy Expert Cookbook. You'll need to go to Booty Bay and buy a book for your Fishing level. Speak to Old Man Hemming and buy the book Expert Fishing: The Bass and You.
Now go to the Lakes outside Stromgarde Keep in Arathi Highlands and fish for Mithril Head Trout. Your going to need about 60 of these to get your cooking up to level 225.

At this point you should now have level 225 fishing and level 225 cooking. If your not level 35 yet, then this is as far as you can go. If you are level 35+ then you have two quests to complete before you can continue.

First quest: Cooking
Requirements: Level 35, 225 Cooking.

Go to Gadgetzan in Tanaris and speak to Dirge Quikcleave. He is in the tavern. He'll want you to bring him 12 Giant Eggs, 10 Zesty Clam Meat and 20 Alterac Swiss. You should actually be able to buy the eggs and clam meat off of AH, but in case you can't here's where to find them. Now according to the quest Giant Eggs drop off of Rocs in Tanaris or any large bird. The best place I found for the eggs, was the Owlbeasts in The Hinterlands. Only needed to kill about 20 of these to get my 12 eggs. They are about level 43 ish, so if your not that high a level, get help or wait till you can handle them. The clam meat comes from clams, naturally! Well to save you swimming around the sea looking for clams, your better off killing turtles at Steamwheedle Port or Raventusk Village. The drop rate is quite high and you'll have your clam meat in no time. The levels are 41 ish for Steamwheedle Port and 49-50 for Raventusk Village. The Alterac Swiss is the easiest part. Go to the Inn in Goldshire, Elwynn Forest and buy them off of the Bartender. Hand them all in and you'll get your Artisan Cooking.

Second Quest: Fishing
Requirements: Level 35, 225 Fishing.

You need to go and find Nat Pagle in Dustwallow Marsh. He is standing on a small island to the West of Theramore (58,60). He'll ask you to catch four rare fishes for him. This quest is actually really easy and the only hard part is the amount of travelling involved. The fish you need to catch are:

Feralas Ahi - West from Camp Mojache. Fish the Verdantis River where the small bridge is by the Ogres, you'll soon catch one.

Sar'theris Striker - South or North or Shadowprey Village. Make sure the area comes up as Sar'theris Strand.

Savage Coast Blue Saffin - Just outside Grom'gol Base Camp. Make sure the area comes up as Savage Coast.

Misty Reed Mahi Mahi - Directly East from Stonnard. Just avoid the Murlocs.

You should catch these fish within 5 to 10 casts at each location. So it wont take long. I haven't done this quest on my Alliance character, so I'm not sure of the best order in which to do them.
Now go back to Nat and get your Artisan Fishing.
There is apparently a bug with this quest, if go away from Nat BEFORE getting your fishing level to 226, the quest can bug and you'll be stuck on 225 for good. Didn't happen to me, but I've seen a few posts from people who it's happened to.

Go to Steamwheedle port and speak to Gikkix, You'll want to buy the following two recipes: Spotted Yellowtail and Poached Sunscale Salmon (Sunscale Salmon can only be caught between 0600 and 1800 game time).
Either fish for Spotted Yellowtails at Steamwheedle Port or go to Raventusk Village (well not to it, just a little North of it) for the slightly better drop rate. You'll need about 30 to get your cooking from 225 to 250.
Now go to Bloodvenom Falls in Felwood and fish for Sunscale Salmon. You'll need about 30 to get your cooking from 250 to 275.
No go and speak to Vivianna in The Feathermoon Stronghold and buy the recipe for Mightfish Steak. Whilst your there buy about 40 Hot Spices and 40 Soothing Spices as your going to be making the food that you will want as a level 60 (without going into instances that is). It gives a +10 stamina buff for 15mins which is always helpful.
Now go to Scalebeard's Cave in Azshara (its one of the islands to the East) and fish for Mightfish. You'll need about 30 to get your cooking from 275 to 300. You may need to bring some lures with you at this point, as your cooking will level up faster than your fishing and Azshara is a 250+ fishing zone. Once your cooking is a 300, keep fishing till you've maxed out that too. It will take 7 to 10 catches to get one skill up at this point, so take your time.

Heavy Runecloth Bandage = 2000dmg

N.B.Takes 6-8 seconds to apply a bandage

Directions for finding Deneb Walker

Directions provided by Belasarius on Bloodhoof, who managed to describe it perfectly.

Walk into Stromgarde and keep turning right. It's in the Alliance part of the keep so you should not have to fight. Once you go over a small bridge the guy who sells the book for level 150-225 is standing under a lamp post in an area surrounded by plants.

Additional directions from Sadvsadv on Turalyon

When you enter Stromgarde Keep, take 4 turns to the right. There he is and you are only going over Alliance territory.

Hopefully, you should all be able to find him now :)
ALSO REMEMBER TO BUY ALL THREE BOOKS WHILE YOUR THERE!!
Herbalism 1 to 300 Guide by Highlander on EU-Terenas

Bear in mind, that where I've specified a particular herb to pick, do not avoid picking anything else you see. Pick everything.

I've also tried to list multiple alternatives for each part of the levelling up guide. This should hopefully allow you to choose the area that’s best for you or give you alternatives if an area is already being farmed by other players.

1 - 50

Collecting Silverleaf and Peacebloom


•Mulgore. Just do circuits round the base of Thunderbluff picking Silverleaf and Peacebloom.


•Do circuits around Dolanaar heading South East around the lake and back up to Dolanaar, if your Alliance or complete circuits of Elwynn Forest.


•For Undead, try starting at Solliden Farmstead in Tirisfal Glades, run north to the mills, loop round and back south past Stillwater Pond and onto Cold Hearth Manor and Nightmare Vale. Then back up to Solliden Farmstead again. (Thanks to Olmolmtyr for info)


You can find Peacebloom and Silverleaf in abundance around your main starting area (not in it, around it). So the first 50 levels should be really easy.

51 - 70

Collecting Mageroyal and Earthroot


•Go west from Crossroads then head north before the entrance to Stonetalon Mountains and follow around to where the harpies are, then head east back to the Gold road and then south to Crossroads again, picking Mage Royal, Earthroot, Peacebloom and Silverleaf as you go.


•For Alliance start in the north of Westfall and follow the coast south to Deadmines and then head straight to Sentinel Hill and back up to the north again, picking Mageroyal.


•You can also run circuits of Gol'Bolar Quarry in Dun Morogh, collecting Earthroot as you go. (Thanks to Flareon for that info)


71 - 100

Collecting Briarthorn


•Same route as above (for Horde), but extend it east to Sludge Fen, picking Briarthorn now.
You could actually extend your runs to encompass the whole of The Barrens, as this area is absolutely chock full of Briarthorn and other herbs. It's possibly the best area to get your Herbalism trained up.


•Southern part of Silverpine Forest, from Pyrewood Village to the Entrance to Hillsbrad Foothills and back again.


•Same route as above (for Alliance) or do circuits of Twilight Grove in Duskwood.


•Also for Alliance, just wander north to south in Darkshore for loads of Briarthorn.


•The eastern side of Loch Modan is also a great place for Briarthorn.


•You could also do circuits of Lakeshire in Redridge Mountains.


101 - 115

Collecting Bruiseweed


•Start at the Ramparts in Ashenvale and head north-east to Splintertree Post (don’t follow road, try to go as straight as you can, you'll find more herbs that way), then head west from Splintertree Post towards the first bridge. Head south from here past the Moonwell and then back west to the ramparts when you reach the edge of the map. Pick Bruiseweed as you go.


•Stonetalon Mountains. Go to Camp Aparaje, head west to the Grimtotem Post, then south to Malaka'jin, then east to the Greatwood Vale. Nice run of Bruiseweed there.


•The Field of Giants in Southern Barrens or between the two Razorfens.


•You can also circle to the north of Mystral Lake for Bruiseweed or to the West of Astranaar in Ashenvale.


•Windshear Crag in Stonetalon Mountains.


•The eastern coast of Loch Modan.


•Circuits of Stonewatch keep in Redridge Mountains.


116 - 125

Collecting Wild Steelbloom


•Go to Stonetalon Peak and do circuits of the small area around the Alliance Town and the Talon Den collecting Wild Steelbloom.


•For higher levels do full circuits of Arathi Highlands, sticking to the mountain sides (as this is where you'll find Wild Steelbloom)


•Nek'mani Wellspring in Stranglethorn Vale.


•The Zuuldaia Ruins, north of Grom'gol in Stranglethorn Vale.


•Go from Black Channel Marsh in the Wetlands to the Angerfang Encampment, taking in Whelgar's Excavation Site as you go.


•Go from The Field of Giants in southern Barrens to the two Razorfens and back up again.


•Between The Great Lift and Highperch in Thousand Needles.


N.B. You can quite happily stay in Stranglethorn Vale from 125 to 200+, as there is such a wide variety of herbs to pick here.

*from now on your going to be doing circuits of the full map, so you'll have to learn your own paths.

126 - 160

Collecting Kingsblood


•Full circuits of Ashenvale to collect Kingsblood.


•Circuits of The Charred Vale in Stonetalon Mountains.


•Full circuits of The Wetlands.


•Full circuits of Hillsbrad Foothills.


•The Misty Reed Stand in Swamp of Sorrows.


161 - 185

Collecting Fadeleaf


•Full circuits of Swamp of Sorrows to collect Fadeleaf (sell these to Rogues for a good profit).
186 - 205

Collecting Khadgar's Whisker


•Full circuits of The Hinterlands to collect Khadgar's Whisker.


•The Witherbark Village and Ogre Compound in Arthai Highlands.


•You can also stay in Swamp of Sorrows, as there is a decent amount of Khadgar's Whiskers there.


206 - 230

Collecting Firebloom


•Full circuits of Searing Gorge to collect Firebloom.


•Full circuits of Blasted Lands.


•Tanaris also has a lot, but doing full circuits takes time. You can divide Tanaris into four and do circuits that way.


231 - 250

Collecting Sungrass


•Full circuits of Felwood to collect Sungrass. This is actually more of a zigzag pattern, rather than a circuit (also try to do the Cleansing Felwood quest and pick up Windblossom Berries, Nightdragons, Whipper Roots and the odd Songflower Serenade buff when needed).


•Feralas is also a great place to get Sungrass. You can make two circuits here. One that starts in the very north west at The Ruins of Ravenwind and runs south to The High Wilderness and one around The Lower Wilds, Lariss Pavillion, Grimtotem Compound and Woodpaw Hills, all near Camp Mojache.


•You can do circuits around The Forlorn Ridge in Azshara.


•You can try the main path through The Hinterlands too. As you follow it one way, stay about 50 metres from the path and then do the same the other way.


251 - 270

Collecting Gromsblood


•Full circuits of Felwood to collect Gromsblood. See above notes.


•Do circuits of Mannoroc Coven in Desolace for Gromsblood too.


•Full circuits of Blasted Lands.


•Demon Fall Canyon in Ashenvale, not many people bother with this area, so although its small, it can be good for farming Gromsblood.



271 - 285 or 290 (see below)

Collecting Dreamfoil


•Full circuits of Un'goro Crater to collect Dreamfoil.


•Two good routes in Azshara are:


•From The Forlorn Ridge, head south east to the Ravencrest Monument and back again.


•From the north of the Ruins of Eldareth, head north east to the Jagged Reaches and back again.


285 or 290 - 300

From 285 you can get Plagueblooms from doing circuits of Eastern and Western Plaguelands and Felwood, but if your not competing against a load of other players, try to collect Icecaps from Winterspring, as they will sell for more money.

Jewelcrafting 1 to 300 by Highlander on EU-Terenas

If you are level 60+ and your just starting to level Jewelcrafting AND you haven't chosen either Scryer's or Aldor's faction yet. Then it's a really good idea, to level your Jewelcrafting before you do choose your faction. Ther reason being is there is a Jewelcrafting trainer on the Aldor rise in Shattrath that will teach you all levels of Jewelcrafting. This means you don't have to keep going back to Silvermoon City or The Exodar for training. Can save you a lot of time.

Leatherworking 1 to 300 Guide by Lobotomy on EU-Frostmane

I wrote this Leatherworking levelling guide because I decided to level leatherworking on my hunter, and I wanted the most profitable levelling possible(not the fastest or cheapest, but I'll include some options for that too). Most of what you make can be put on AH, but some of it might also need to be disenchanted. To be able to disenchant the highest item you need 180 Enchanting, but a level 5 enchanter with 50 skill will be able to DE the lowest stuff.

Some parts might need a world drop or vendor bought recipe, see end of post to find out from where.

I've tried to only use skillups with orange recipes, but some places(5-10 skill points max) you might do a yellow recipe. If that causes you to use more mats, I'm sorry.

The levelling guide is divided into 4 parts:
1-150 with Low Mats(vendor), Max Profit(DE/AH), What I Did
150-205 with Low Mats and Nice Profit, Max profit(AH)
205-250 with Max Profit(Elemental), Dragonscale and Tribal

When it says Nightscape Headband/Tunic, it means you can choose. Tunics use 2 more Thick leather than Headbands, so if you're only disenchanting Headbands is the best, while if you're putting on AH a mix is better.

Mining 1 to 300 Guide by Highlander on EU-Terenas

What you’re going to need:

Mining skill (obviously). Go see your local mining trainer to get trained.
A mining pick. Can't mine without one (these can also be enchanted if you want, makes absolutely no difference, but it's cool to have. Even if you have your mining pick enchanted the standard mining animation remains the same, so you actually see that nice demonslaying glow you got put on there. You will only see the glow when you equip it like a normal weapon. A player on our server even had a Crusader enchant put on their mining pick and told me that the proc happens when they mine, cant confirm this for sure, but it does seem really pointless).

Optional, but recommended extra: get the cheapest pair of gloves you can find and get them enchanted with +5 mining skill (shouldn't cost you more than 2g, as it takes 3 x Truesilver Bars and 3 x Vision Dust). Don’t bother with the +2 enchant as its not worth it.
If you’re an engineer then make yourself a Goblin Mining Helmet ( http://www.thottbot.com/index.cgi?i=12859 ) as this will add +5 to your mining skill.

Also, please remember that mining nodes only appear on the side of hills, cliffs, mountains etc. So your unlikely to find any ores in the great rolling plains, unless there is a small hill there. Also note that Darnassus has NO ore whatsoever! So if you’re a Night Elf and want to mine, get your booty over to Darkshore ASAP. So with that in mind, always follow the cliff faces or hillsides.

Got all that? Good, then lets down and dirty, Dwarf style :o)

Mining 1 to 65

Mining Copper

Estimated number of nodes to mine = 30

This bit is easy. Mine about 50 copper and smelt. You can use any of the following suggestions for mining routes or make up your own, as copper is so abundant:

*At level 50, go back to the mining trainer and learn Journeyman Mining.

Horde


•Undead: Start at the entrance to Deathknell, looking out towards Brill. Head South and follow the cliffs all the way round to The Undercity. Skip past UC and keep following the cliffs up to The Bulwark. Now head North up to Scarlet Monastery, hugging the cliffs as you go. When to reach the coast, head west and then south to follow the cliffs down and round to Agamand Mills. Follow those hills south again to get back to your starting point. Average amount of copper ore from this run, should be about 30-40.


•Tauren: Mulgore. The natural geography of this place makes it easy to run around. Just pick a starting point and follow the cliffs all the way around in a circle. Remember to check out the Venture Co mine on your way round. Average amount of copper ore from this run, should be about 40-50.


•Orc & Troll: You could just do whole circuits of Durotar, but there is so much copper round here that small routes are just as productive. My favourite routes are:


•Start at the gates of Orgrimmar and head East towards Skull Rock (make sure you go into Skull Rock and mine the ore there too). Head a short way south to where that Orc is standing on his lonesome, then head back West following the cliff face (keeping the Zep Tower in sight). Carry on over the road and across the top of the canyon and on to the coast. Head North up to the cliff face and then East back to Orgrimmar. I get about 30-40 copper ores from this short run on a good day.


•Start at Razor Hill and head West towards the Quilboar grounds. Hug the cliff face until you reach the river, then head north until you reach Orgrimmar. Head East until you see the first little farmstead, now head south and drop into the canyon. Follow the canyon out and head South East until you reach Razor Hill again. You’ll get about 25-30 copper ores on this route.
Alliance


•Human: Start at Goldshire and head East following the cliff face to the north of Crystal Lake. When you get the north of the Logging Camp head South. Follow the river to the border of Elwynn forest and Duskwood, then head North West back towards Goldshire (make sure you visit the two mines on this route). This route should net you about 30-40 copper ores.


•Night Elves: Your going to have to go to Darkshore, as Darnassus has no ores whatsoever! So start at Auberdine and head directly east until you reach the cliffs at the edge of the map. Now head south, hugging the cliff face as you go. When you get to the entrance of Ashenvale, head west to the coast and then North back to Auberdine. Head out from Auberdine, directly to the East (same as you did at the start of this route), but when you reach the cliffs this time head north. Just follow the cliffs to the North and back round the coast, heading South again to Auberdine. I find this figure of eight pattern to be easier than taking Auberdine in one whole route, but that’s just me. Feel free to improvise it. Normally get about 40-50 copper ores from this entire route.


•Dwarves and Gnomes: Ah, the home of mining and possibly the best place to start, Dun Morogh! You really don’t need a route around here, copper is everywhere, if you can’t find a decent route yourself, then you’re beyond help! But, I will tell you my favourite route. Start at Kharanos and head to the Wendigo cave (you all know where that is, right?). Clear cave and then continue on West, following the cliff face. Carry on until you hit the main road then head North up to the Frostmane Hold. From there head directly east over to Shimmer Ridge, then North up to Ice Flow Lake. Now follow the cliffs down to Ironforge, on to Misty Pine Refuge and back round to Kharanos. This run normally nets me about 40-50 copper ore.


•Another good run in this area is the Gol’Bolar Quarry. Circle the outside, around the top, then drop down and into the mines. I can get about 20 copper ores on this short run.


Mining 66 – 125

Mining Tin, Silver, Incendicite and Lesser Bloodstone

Estimated number of nodes to mine = 60

This part is a pain in the butt, if you don’t have a mount (well its all a pain in the butt, if you don’t have a mount) as the Tin Veins your going to need to mine are more spread out and not as common as the Copper you just being mining. You also stop getting skill up’s from smelting after about level 85 (Silver is the last thing to give you a skill up). The leg from 100-125 is also pretty bad, as Tin is green at this stage and therefore your getting skill ups at fewer intervals (just pray its a Silver spawn, instead of Tin, as this will still be yellow to you).

Horde & Alliance *even on PvP servers you can still use these routes and areas.
Easiest way to level up to 125, is to go to The Wetlands and find Thelgan Rock (its near the entrance to Dun Algaz - 53,64 for those with location add-ons). There is a cave there, that is full of spiders and a quest ore called Incendicite. This is an Alliance only quest, but Horde can still mine the ore. Now the ore itself is worthless and only used to complete the quest, but you can mine it from level 75 until about level 125. The nodes respawn quickly and you can level up your mining in less than an hour if your the only one in the cave.
If your Alliance and want to do the quest, go see Pilot Longbeard in The Military Ward in Ironforge for the starting quest. He'll send you to speak to Pilot Stonegear in Kharanos, who then gives you the quest.
Thank you to everyone who suggested this, especially Plog

Lesser Bloodstone: go to the cave in north east Arathi Highlands, just to the east of Hammerfall (path to cave is at 80,40) and mine the nodes inside. It's used as part of a quest chain that’s started in Booty Bay by Corporal Kaleb (in the tavern). You only need to keep four of them for the quest. Lesser Bloodstone requires level 75 mining
