This item can be acquired through Enchanting vendors (there's always one at each city, several more in other locations) by buying the Lesser Magic Essence, at 8 silvers each (7s20c with the Revered discount). Since it's a pretty early material to level Enchanting, you can buy ahead before starting leveling, but Strange Dust (also sold at the same vendors, for the same price - but in this case it often can be bought at AH for even lower) should be your primary material throughout almost the whole first 100 levels.
Despite what you may see here, it does take three Lesser Essences to create a Greater Essence. What you see here is actually a quirk of the way Blizzard handles the spell. On Blizzard's end, a two-step process occurs:
You use the first Lesser Essence, destroying it in the process.
A spell is cast, which destroys the other two Lesser Essences, and creates a Greater Essence.
This spell here--step two--is the spell that gets listed here on Wowhead.
Right click the Lesser Magic Essences, that will turn them into the Greater ones. Conversely clicking on a Greater will break it into 3 Lesser.
was wondering if it can be posted in every enchanting material page where they can be best farmed from. I've been looking for it for a while :D
thanks in advance, will make searching easier anyways :D
well if u know anything about dis- u know that trolling the ah for diss lvl 1 gear is the way to go.....*)

if you have completed exiles reach on at least one character (does not need to be your enchanter) they sell low level greens for under a gold. 80% essence, 15% dust chance. this should be the fastest way outside of the AH to collect these and likely one of the cheapest outside of farming mats yourself.
