The only major flaw with the design of this achievement is the 60 stack limit on Ogre Waystones. Are you really supposed to go spend them by closing and opening portals you already have in use, to be able to farm more?
If you haven't already opened one or two portals (level one and two tower respectively), the only way to accumulate 500 on one character is to delete them once you hit 60.
If you have multiple characters, you don't have to delete your stones, as progress counts on any character. To get 500, though, you'd need at least nine characters of a high enough level to farm them (60 x 8 characters = 480, plus 20 more stones).
As stated below, the absolute best spot for this is in Frostfire Ridge at 65.97,46.32. The drop rate is phenomenal and they're only level 90 ogres with near instant regen.
Best place ive found to farm these is in Frostfire Ridge at 66, 46 just east of The Cracking Plains, its a small Ogre camp with 35k hp.. 2-4 stones per ogre (few no drops) but very consistant
Started farming these today. Got my first 60 in 16 minutes. Frostfire Ridge is definitely the right spot.
They stack above 60 as of 6.1. Farm to your hearts content.
Edit: Yep, they can stack up to 500. Feel free to do 'em all in one go.
As a hunter with
and the mounted combat mount I found
ogres in Nagrand
to be a good farming spot. Misdirect on your pet (I used a macro), pull a bunch, go up the stairs, clear it up and by the time you're done the ones at the bottom will have respawned. They only have ~70k HP so they go down quickly.
EDIT: Why downrate valid information? There be griefers among us.
At the moment my preferred location to farm these is Gordal Fortress in Talador. Yesterday I was able to farm up 450 of these in just over an hour, and at 100 these level 94 mobs go down fast.
The video that posted here show good guide of orges respawning fast till today after server reroll restart. It stopped respawning fast, back to frostfridge orges D:
Place listed in frost fire is still a good drop rate but it's been nerfed somewhat. Got my 75 in a bout 20 mins and had no problem with a 60 stack limit as some people mentioned. I'm level 100 so i was killing them fast, 1 shot or maybe 2, wouldn't get any drops for a few then the next would drop 4. Also because i was killing them fast i had to run down the hill and find a few strays so the camp could respawn. BUT after reading this i put my fifty in the bank and kept 25 in my bag BUT after starting the first Ogre waygate it took the 25 i had and 25 out of my bank. Still had 25 for the second gate but none left for my third. Maybe they want you to grind out 500 from zero for the third :(
ps didn't read in date order so maybe Gordal Fortress is better place
The video still shows the best place to farm these stones. In the cave at the Stonemaul Arena (37,63) in Gorgrond, the ogres in the main room spawn almost instantly. As a warlock, I just ran around putting down Rain of Fire at each of the 4 main spawn locations and waited for the mobs to come to me. I got this achievement in about 40 minutes.
this is January 21, 2016, I have been to every place mentioned, and not one way stone anywhere!
was there a nerf?
Stonemaul Arena, Gorgrond 40.9, 52,5
500 Waystones 40minutes+
Can hop servers/Raid Group works.
Most definitely, the Stonemaul Arena, in the cave mentioned above. I haven't played since Warlords came out and picked the game back up last week. When I built the Spirit Lodge, I remembered this place from a quest. My curiosity was rewarded as the respawn rate is really fast. If you manage to kill everything in here, just go outside, round everything up and burn it down, then head back in the cave and do it all over. You can get all 500 stones from this area in no time if you keep moving your rear so don't be lazy guys XD
Not sure if things have changed. Grimfrost Hill is OK but not quite the paradise we're looking for. Respawns are pretty slow and the drop rate is about 60%. I guess that's not awful but for farming critical items it's a little annoying.
As mentioned by various other people, Stonemaul Arena in Gorgrond at 39,66 is the absolute best place to farm still.
Started farming at 10:20 and finished all 500 stones at 11:10, I found the fastest respawn rates to be inside the cave, just keep doing loops and collect those stones!
As of Legion, it's probably worth farming outdoors Highmaul raid area instead. Sure, they drop about the same amount of waystones as all the other ogres, but they are level 100, which makes them eligible to level up bodyguard reputation at the same time, plus they drop a ton of reputation items for Steamwheedle Preservation Society, which you probably do not have maxed if you're farming these in Legion. Just be aware that you will need flying in Draenor to reach most if not all of them. Only took me exactly one hour to farm all 500 as a 110 warlock and I got 1400 Gorian artifact fragments (17500-24500 rep) and 25 Highmaul Relics.(8750 rep). That's before any reputation bonuses.
Easy Achievement for Level 60 Shadowlands and Beyond...
0. Grab your bodyguard that still needs rep from your Garrison if needed.
1. Head to Kor'Gall's Hovel in Gorgrond, the cave at Stonemaul Arena at 39, 66.
2. Enter the cave and in the center area you'll find when you kill all the Ogres they respawn extremely quickly. I was able to go from 120 Ogre Waystones to 500 in less than 30 minutes.
4. Profit. Achievement Completed.
Despite all the comments suggesting the cave at Stonemaul Arena, the mobs definitely weren't respawning that quickly when I tried earlier today. Stonemaul arena is still a great spot for this, but you are better off just running a big loop outside instead of staying in the cave waiting for respawns.
