Where Can I Farm For Mote of Air, Mote of Earth, Mote of Water, Mote of Mana and Mote of Fire?
I need some motes! I just don’t really know the best places to farm for the different motes in Outlands. Do you know the best places to farm for motes?
Motes, motes, and even more motes! Those are the new “Essences” of World of Warcraft. Being a blacksmith myself it really can be a pain sometimes to find places to farm for these where not a lot of people are currently farming for them.
One of the best places to farm for motes is the Elemental Plateau in Nagrand. I know, I know….this can be the most farmed place for motes in the entire game. That is really because it is a great place to farm motes. The trick to it is farming for motes there when there is hardly anyone else there. So, you will really just want to farm this area during the late night hours or the early hours. Just make sure you find something else to do during Prime Time which usually happens between 6pm and midnight (at least on my server).
Another place you may want to check out is Netherstorm for some Mote of Mana drops. The mobs that drop these typically move around near the edges all around the islands in Netherstorm. The great part about these is they are levels 67-69 and are a lot easier to kill than most elemental mobs. The Phase Hunters around Netherstorm are really even better. This is probably the easiest place to gather Motes of Mana.
If you are looking for Mote of Air look no further than Shadowmoon Valley especially south-east of the Warden’s Cage around the Netherwing Drakes flying above. This area is farmed a lot as well but isn’t as nearly as busy as in Nagrand. You can also farm Mote of Mana here as well from the Nether Rays. Another great point about this is you don’t have to have a flying mount to get access to these.
These are the areas that I farm for motes the most and it has proven to be pretty profitable selling these in the auction house. It has brought a lot of gold in for me and I am almost ready to get my epic flying mount! Can’t wait! I know these areas will help you out a lot and the only other thing I can say is….time to get farming!
