1500 Cinderbloom milled

On vent, there have been some discussion about what Cinderbloom mills into, with some speculation that drop rates may have changed.  So today, I milled 1500 of them, converting them into ink.  I now have cramped fingers and some real numbers.

The macro I used for milling is
/cast milling
/use cinderbloom

So the final results are available on my milling spreadsheet on the CinderbloomTest page, with
  • 65 Burning Ember (becoming 32.5 Inferno Inks)
  • 751 Ashen Pigments (becoming 375.5 Blackfallow Inks)
This gives 0.216 Burning Embers/ 5 herbs, vs an expected 0.25.
And 2.5 Ashen pigment/5 herbs, being the expected amount.


  1. Nice post! 75 stacks, I hope you didn't farm them yourself... =)

    But I agree that at some point they did change the "droprate" from milling since the start of Cata. I believe that happened a few weeks back.

    I am seeing that the top end herbs (twilight, whiptail, and heartblossom) are very close on the ashen, but you gain 1-2 burning embers per stack milled (which is worth it, due to Inferno's holding steady at 220ish each) Are you getting the same rate on the senior herbs?

  2. The only farming I did was from that nice little building in the Stormwind Dwarven District, immediately opposite the bank.

    I have not conciously tracked the milling of better cata herbs. From what I have seen it is consistent with Auctioneers value 2 embers ber 20 stack of twilight jasmine.
