Trillium ore

Professions
What is the best area to mine Trillium both white and black? I am just wondering because the bars seem to be selling for a lot on the AH on my server.
I cant seem to mine it in an even steady ammount anywhere.

Best to farm Ghost Iron and do the xmute.
Ghost Iron is about as common as Trees hahah

... which is why it is best to just farm Ghost Iron and then xmute it up to Trillium... Treat actual Trillium nodes as a bonus and definitely don't just skip over Ghost Iron nodes because they aren't Trillium.
Trillium nodes randomly give either white or black ore. There's no telling which you'll wind up with. If you find yourself with more of one, you can buy either white or black ore from the Spirit of harmony vendor in the Shrine. Probably not the best use for a SoH, tho. Overall, tho, just find a friendly alchemist. No CD on the trillium xmute, so they can crank out a lot.
ive also mined trillium ore off of corpses in scenarios.
Yeah, I've gotten some occasionally off of any mob corpse you can mine. Not the best way to get some, tho, but a nice bonus when it happens.

I believe Trillium is the rare-spawn version of a Ghost Iron node. Meaning that anytime a node is mined, when it comes back and respawns the node has a small chance of being Trillium when it respawns.

So the best area to find Trillium would be an out-of-the-way area where people do not notice the Trillium node.

But like others have said, mining is not the best way to get Trillium bars. A better way to get Trillium bars is to transmute Ghost Iron bars, since Ghost Iron is more plentiful.

what make them into ghost iron bars? then what does the alchemist (friend) do?
I usually get the best chances going to Kota Peak in Kun-Lai. The one cave with all the yetis in it has a bunch of nodes and often I'll be fortunate enough to get 2 Trillium nodes out of it. That's the only consistent place I've been able to find Trillium.
Farm kill rare spawns late at night, get bags of goods - get 40 trillium a pop often.

As a fellow completer of Glorious!, I can verify that this works well.

Especially the bug rare in the Steppes. Big bag of gems plz.
I got a bunch fishing crates. It's actually not bad.
