I don't know if just hitting nodes would be better if the only thing I wanted to do with my time was getting the mats, but I also want to increment slayer deeds and get other things that drop from humanoid and undead mobs.
Re: Best place to farm mobs that drop tier 3 mats?
Farming mobs seems to be the best way now to get scholar mats and and jeweler gems. I spent a half hour of farming for t2 iron/silver nodes and only got about 50 silver ore and 11 gems. That would get me about 100 points. After that I killed maybe 10 mobs. In those few mob kills that took 2-3 minutes, I got 15 gems. Almost 200 gems in less than an hour and almost a full stack of each type of t2 scholar mat (cryptic texts & ruined second age trinkets).
Like the poster above said, that cave is a good spot. Lots of mobs to kill down there as well for mats.
Edit: It seems wights tend to drop more scholar mats and jeweler, not sure where to find ones that drop T3. I'm pretty sure the ones around Nan Dhelu drop T4.
