Reekwater – Best Platinum Location
The best region to farm Platinum Ore is Reekwater. There are two concentrations, both to the east of Reekwater Town. These farming spots are close together, close to the town, and have a large amount of spawnable nodes. This is a great combination for a quick run that is close to town.
Shattered Mountain – 2nd Best Platinum Location
The second best location is new the fast travel shrine in Shattered Mountain. This is a heavily populated Platinum area that can be farmed if you spend a little Azoth and use the fast travel spirit shrine.
Ebonscale Reach – Platinum Locations
Ebonscale Reach has two good options for Platinum Ore. There are a few nodes just west of Ebonscale Reach Town, as well as another, more densely populated area to the south. The south spot is very nice to farm at, but takes a bit longer to travel to than many of our other suggestions.
Great Cleave – Platinum Locations
There is a fast travel shrine in the middle of Great Cleave that has an abundance of Platinum Veins directly to the east. Pick these up if you are in the area.
Edengrove – Platinum Locations
Finally, in Edengrove there are more spawn locations for Platinum that are a big harder to get to. These may be less populated with players and therefore possibly easier to grab.
