    Where would you camp?

    Hi! I've got 3 accounts active right now, with level 90s on two of the accounts and I'm working on the third one. I've got multiple monitors and one of the things I was thinking of doing was to just park a 90 somewhere where something/a rare spawns to make some profit while I'm playing on the third account. I had thought to park an herbalist at a spawn point for an herb and just harvest it as it spawns, but that doesn't seem to be working out too well, as the node I've chosen has spawned once in the hour I've had him parked there. I had also parked an alt at Spriggans spawn point and sure enough I got both the Banana-infused rum recipe as well as the epic BoE leggings he drops, but the leggings ended up selling for less than 1000g and it took around 7-8 spawns for them to drop.

    I've already obtained both the fishing lure and the mining pick by doing this, so that helps when I'm playing the actual accounts, but I was wondering if there are other options that would possibly make some decent gold if the right drop happened for me. Any ideas? Thanks for any replies!

    If you're just looking for a spot to park your toon and wait for an NPC to spawn, Scritch is a pretty common one. Mostly you're looking for [Hozen Peace Pipe] which still sells pretty well (TUJ has a value of around 14k for it), but has about a 10% drop rate.

    Scritch is probably the best one, but you could park another in Townlong Steppes near Kah'tir who has a chance of dropping the Big Bag of Arms, containing two random BoE epics. They're lower level meant more for 85-90 instead of endgame but still might make a couple thousand.

    Also when he spawns, usually every rare in the zone spawns and the ones in Townlong all drop different bags with various items inside. I've heard good things about the herbalism bag containing almost a stack of Golden Lotus sometimes.

    My experience has been one BoE epic and one BoP epic, usually. If you're grouped with an enchanter even if the're afk in another continent you can still DE the BoPs for [Sha Crystal]. Even the blues they always drop are a good source of [Ethereal Shard] with a DEr in the group. I used to spend lots of time farming these during the day/late at night.

    If you're in the habit of camping, park a toon at a poseidus spawn and do a circuit every hour or so. Still sells for 100k on occasion.

    I'd go for the Golden Lotus guy instead of the Big Bag of Arms. Half of the stuff in there are BoP, unfortunately.

    Ditto to @KatsuraNomiya , Poseidus is probably the best thing to camp on a regular basis.

    I must have good luck with the Bag of Arms then, I don't camp it regularly so I've only got the bag twice but both times were two BoE items.

    Either way, you can park at one then check all the rest after killing the one you're camping.

    Poseidus and Scritch are solid, although the odds of you logging in at the exact proper time are remote. You may consider the spider in Deepholm as well.

    If you are going to camp Poseidus though, don't just park your toon blindly and do a pass every hour. His spawning pattern is pretty well known at this point and you can spend DAYS circling every hour when it is known he won't spawn. Follow the advice of the Wowhead posters and camp at those hours with the highest potential for a spawn, Fri 11 am - Sat 11 am on a week that had a server reset or longer maintenance.

    Thanks all. I have killed the guy who drops the bag of epics and I got one BoE and one BoP. I had thought of the peace pipe but I was thinking it was a much lower drop rate from what I had read. Poseidus seems to me to be a really low chance of me bumping into him, but maybe I could park an alt at two of his possible spawn points during the key times. I like the thought of a stack of golden lotus, might try that one. The spider in Deepholm, is it the one in the cave that drops the mini version of itself?
