It's listed under elements, i c wut u did thar Blizz. /)(\
It seems to be a reagent for many high-end craftables. Perhaps it will be created through alchemy or some other means, by combining the following?:
Spirit of Summer
Spirit of Winter
Spirit of Autumn
Spirit of Spring
NOTE: This is just speculation
Actually, I think we might be looking at MoP's
Seems very strange to place this item in comparison to other expansion
It is used to create epic weapons, which would put it on par with Chaos Orbs ( Frozen Orbs) from the last two expansions
But at the same time, it is also used merely to upgrade a common gem to a rare gem.. which in Cata only required a few herbs.
My guess is it will be more like primal might, and will be created by alchemists using primals (volatiles). The big question will be what is the cooldown on the process.
In any event, it seems like a rather expensive cost to use for a gem upgrade unless rare gems become much more rare than they are in Cata.
Dropped by a normal 85 mob in the Jade Forrest yesterday while doing the quest.
If this is not a beta test setting only, it seems to me this item could be just a random world drop in all Pandaria new 85+ area.
Picture of it dropping off a mob.
Seems to be fairly rare.
Hopefully this regent will not be that rare as looking at leather working it seems to be used in every recipe beyond 570 in various amounts. I hope it will drop in many places.
"Revered by craftsmen throughout Pandaria, this spirit is used in 145 recipes."
> used in countless recipes
A reference to Arcane Blast.
If you look at the recipies involving this item it looks to me as this is a replacement for the current vollitiles. No more fire/earth/life/water - just this one item used on a lot of crafts.
Because it's used in to many low-level craftings theres no doubt in my mind that it will not be super rare.
Well crap. Being as they're BoP and drop off mobs, I've got two toons that will undoubtedly have a ton of these: my Herbalism/Skinning and Engineering/Enchanting toons, the two who have zero use for them.
I'm really hoping these just become unbound.
Got 7 in total while leveling from 86-90. Skipped Jade Forest because it's offline, but rng is rng so you could gain less or more depending on your luck.
It's now down to 59 recipes. and a pattern is emerging.
Enchanting, Herbalism, Mining and Skinning can't use them at all.
They're needed to bypass daily cloth production (3)
They're needed to bypass daily JC research (3)
They're needed to bypass daily Living steel restrictions (alchemy, 3)
They're needed for all weekly inscription quests (1,4-6)
They're needed for all weapon manufacture (lvl 85: 1-2, lvl 90: 2 or 5)
They're needed for all lvl 90 non-cloth armor
They're needed for either engineering mount (12)
They're needed for the "Blingtron 4000" (4)
They're needed for the "Mist-Piercing Goggles" (2)
They're needed for the JC trinkets (3)
They're needed for making cards in inscription (10)
The last seems like a serious anomaly. As you need on average about 9 random cards to make a new deck (and you need on average over 80 to get a specific deck when you start from scratch), this means the inscriber would need to get 90 of a BoP rare item to make every trinket, and several hundred to start off. This recipe replaced an earlier recipe needing one scroll of wisdom per card.
In every other instance, only a few are needed for items that are either only needed once, or for weapons and armor that can be replaced doing dungeons; or to bypass a daily limit, or the engineering mount and goggles.
The latest patch added two new NPCs
who are Spirit of Harmony vendors. You give them Harmony and they give you crafting mats. Currently, one stack of ore/herbs/etc per harmony.
This is an excellent resource for dual gatherers and others who may collect the Spirits of Harmony but cannot use them.
(Personally, I would still rather see them BOA but this is better than nothing.)
Since there is lots of speculation, I thought I made a post to sum up the facts.
Spirit of Harmony is the new elemental material and will be the only elemental in Pandaria.
It behaves like previous elemental, it is collected in the form of
Motes of Harmony
, using 10 motes produce a Spirit of Harmony.
It is Bind on Pickup, hence no more elementals market, if you need it, go out and farm.
May become BoA in the future
but so far is all speculation, it looks like will never be unbound though.
Motes of Harmony can be found as a random drop or can be obtained once Revered with the
by planting a
, which when ripe rewards a mote.
Spirit of Harmony can be used by Alchemist to purchase extra transmute and Jewelcrafter to purchase extra daily discoveries.
For gatherers who have no need of these for crafting, Spirit of Harmony can be used in the Vale of Eternal Blossom to buy trade goods. Vendors can be found on the terrace of your faction's temple, next to the riding trainer. The Alliance trader is
works for the Horde.
The vendors will let you trade in a Spirit of Harmony in exchange for a choice of:
1 stash of 20 random
Ghost Iron Ore
Black Trillium Ore
White Trillium Ore
While is true that at some point other elemental materials were datamined and we observed Spirits of
, these never made it into the game as Blizzard has decided to scrap the elemental separation and go for a single elemental. This, as explained in a Blizzard's
, is the result of design simplification in order to avoid filling player's bags with many materials, and my guess is that they also wanted to avoid the supply diversification that made some elementals so common that were almost without value, like Volatile Earth, compared to others that having less sources had their price pushing up, leading to the Volatile shuffle.(##RESPBREAK##)524##DELIM##thaia##DELIM##changed the amount of Golden Lotus awarded down to 2
Confirmed by Blizzard to be part of every creature's loot table in Pandaria. Probably a relatively low drop rate.
On 9/18/2012 Ghostcrawler said they will probably make Spirits of Harmony Bind on Account "eventually".
This doesn't appear to be well known, so upvotes appreciated.
For a dual-gatherer, it's a choice between cashing it in for something lower-value but immediately useful, vs. saving them for the probable/eventual day the above comes true (when your crafters may not need them anymore).
Since I don't see this information in "Currency for" or here in the comments, thought I'd share that you can also use these to purchase the PVP tailoring patterns from
Raishen the Needle
. One gets you one of the 16 available patterns (8 DPS, 8 Healing patterns.)
For any other farming

question - will these or the motes become available for honor or justice trade goods? i hope so!
I don't know about vnedor Exchange *-*,this is mean that i can craft my staff with my iscrption priest *-*
Two levels and one and a half zones in (I've done every quest available to me to this point and two dungeons) I have gathered 13 motes, enough for a grand total of ONE Spirit of Harmony !
How does this compare with your experience so far? Please tell me it improves the higher level you get.
I need many dozens of these to go any further with my tailoring / inscription on this toon.
Unless the drop rate improves I'm basically buggered.
UPDATE: Discovered that I can grow 16 motes per day on my farm so that is awesome.
Plus I usually get 10 or more from dailies.
Now if only I could get more than one scroll of wisdom per day, and that valor cap is harsh :)
Is there anyway to have a crafter use motes from other players to craft items like weapons? Putting it in the "item will not be traded" window? For example I have all the mats including 5 spirit of harmony required for the Masterwork Spiritblade decimator. Can I have a BS make this with my Spirit of Harmony or will I have to pay them to use ones they have farmed?
While in Valley of the Four Winds, in
The Swarm Begins
Does You No Good In The Keg
(this link is for Horde) , where you deliver beer for the Keg one, there are teams of friendly NPC's killing the Ik'thiks. You can tag the bugs as well, don't even need to get the first hit. Just AOE. Lots of mobs, fast spawn and the
Motes of Harmony
seemed to have a pretty good drop off of
and other mobs that wander up while you are with the groups. I farmed about 20 motes in an hour or so, I could have been lucky, but my guildmates reported similar results. Just be prepared not to advance for a while this early in the game to farm for your later needs since I'm not sure this is possible once you complete
The Savior of Stoneplow
. I don't think you can do it after that. So make sure you do it before.
I'm curious as to what other crafters are charging per Spirit of Harmony. I have people interested in the epic Blacksmithing gear from the Klaxxi, and I can't get a straight answer from anyone I ask.
These are BoP and dont know if or when Blizzard will make them BoA.
was introduced in 4.0.3 (16th of November 2010) and became BoA in 4.3.0 (29th of November 2011).
So lets hope it will be soon or that they increase the droprate, low fee for hours of grinding isnt what i want.
To the person asking about pricing: I've been charging between 1.5 and 2k per Spirit to my friends and about 3k per harmony to all others, including AH postings. So a LW chest will go from between 12k and 24k because it contains 8 Spirits.
this mote also drops from
I realised that my low level character who has not yet set foot in Pandaria has the most motes. I was leveling her fishing on Darkmoon with the pools, and it appears the crates are the best way to grind the damned motes. She now has more motes than both my level 90 and 89. Needless to say, she has no use of them other than exchanging them at some point. Sigh.
Made with the spirits of Magic, Generosity, Honesty, Laughter, Loyalty and Kindness
EDIT: This is taking so many up and down votes I don't know if it's good or bad.
When you turn these into Ironpaw Tokens from the Spirit of Harmony vendor, is it possible for it to proc and receive two? I had 9 spirits to turn in yesterday and afterward I ended up with 10 (my chat history also said at one point "You receive loot: x2").
Patch 5.1 PTR Notes Update - November 8
can now be purchased for 600 Conquest Points at the Conquest Quartermaster
Wowhead tooltip seems to be wrong. Should be created from 10
, instead of 9.
Read my comment on this page, this is probably the best spot to farm.
This takes 10
to create one
, and the drop rate on the mote's have seemed to be very very low. I have gotten only 5 of the spirits in the time it took me to level from 85-90.
As of patch 5.1 the
can be purchased for 600 Conquest Points, and
can be purchased for 400 Honor Points.
The fastest ways to get motes now seems to be by running Scenarios. I have been getting 4 - 6 motes per run since 5.1
Datamining the latest 5.2 PTR build has revealed that completing
gives you one Spirit.
are found on the mysterious Isle of Giants to the north of Kun-Lai Summit.
It is possible to get
on low level characters. The
found in Shipwreck Debris pools on Darkmoon Island during Darkmoon Fair drop
at about an 8% drop rate.
My level 80 pally scribe started fishing for 50
at level 1 fishing. It took several hours. I ended up at 311 fishing. I was able to fish crates from my first cast at level 1 fishing and Darkmoon Faire is accessible to level 1s. Thus, a low level character can fish these up. However, I am fairly certain every recipe that uses the
requires a level 80 to reach the sufficient profession level.
can be used as currency so if you have some reason to fish these up below level 80 then it is possible.
To give an idea of how long this will take for planning purposes; I earned the 1000 fish achievement and I fished approximately 750 Shipwreck Debris pools. Moving between the pools significantly increases the time it takes so don't just mentally calculate how long 311 fishing or 1000 casts would take. I recommend you stock up on
during the 3 weeks off time leading up to the Darkmoon Faire.
TLDR: Any character that can enter Darkmoon Faire and has been trained in fishing can fish up
Edit: Ok, fishing requires level 5 so you need to be level 5 with skill level 1 fishing to fish these up.
The icon for this totally looks like the CBS logo.
Do I need to hang onto these? I'd like to make bag space and I am a skinner/herbalist. If I don't need them, I will junk them.
Interesting note for lowbies with gathering professions but not crafting ones and have spirits from Darkmoon fishing and who possess the panda expansion.
have some guildies use a lock closet to summon you to your respective shrine and trade spirits for junk (Also be sure to set your hearth here so you can use the portals at will.) ;)
This is the New Dalaran!
I frankly liked the old Dalaran better...but I'll make do.
20 spirits=400 cloth, 60 Golden Lotus, etc
As far as I can see, level 1s can be summoned to the Shrine of Two Moons, Shrine of Seven Stars.
my 68 DK chills there sometimes.
oh for lowbies:
The vendor for spirits is on the flight deck, in a perfectly safe place for a level 5-84 to be. (At least this is Two Moons, seven stars may be the same or different, alliance could comment the location for Seven Stars, please)
He's under the tree near the flight master and (I think) three taurens, one of them male with two papooses...don't remember if you see him without opening the Vale or not.
For people wishing to farm motes I would recommend Howlingwind Cavern in Kun Lai. The sprites inside are easy to kill and are packed in large groups. The only problem would be the potential questers inside....
Crafting Material SHOULD NOT BE soulbound.
if you really need just one of those there is an NPC in isle of giants with a dailly quest that rewards 1 spirit of harmony
The quest is to collect 99 giant dinosaur bones but note that each dinosaur(the low hp ones) drop 7-11 bones and may also drop a mote of harmony
Please take away the soulbound restriction, or just make them BOA. I've got a ton on one toon who can't use them, and very few on a toon who actually needs them.
As a Horde player; I can say the best place to farm these is Domination Point when we have Lion's Landing and are fighting the Alliance. Windwool, Lion's Landing Commissions, random greens, Motes of Harmony and even a Jewelcrafting Recipe.
I agree with the idea that craft materials should be off trade. But it should be BOA rather than BOP.
It should be noted these are worth more to you as part of some recipes then trading them in for reagents from a vendor. Lord Blastington's scope of Doom is a good example. The reagents for that item are about 150g for the bolts and another 100-150g for the gems. I just sold a few for 550-600g at a 250g-300g profit.. This is ALOT more valuable then the 60g or so from the reagents you could have bought.
Only trade them in if you truly cannot use them.
Spirit Dust x20 AH Value 40g
Mysterious essence x5 AH Value 35g
Eternal Shard x1 AH Value 6g
Starlight Ink x1 AH Value 135g
Pandarian Herbs x1 Ah Value 14~24g
Windwool Cloth x20 Ah Value 20g
Golden Lotus x2 Ah Value 62g
Ghost Iron Ore x20 Ah Value 49g
Kyparite x20 Ah Value 40g
White Trillium Ore x5 Ah Value 42g
Black Trillium Ore x5 Ah Value 50g
Exotic Leather x20 Ah Value 60g
Prismatic Scale x20 Ah Value 139g
Serpents Eye x1 Ah Value 9g
Shattered Halls (With Connected Realms)
If you do not like killing monsters to farm
, running scenarios for
is probably the best item in game to get
. With the exception of planting
for the motes with a maximum of 16 per day.
All you do is complete a scenario, obtain
and receive 1-17 motes. From my experience, I receive about 4-5 per cache on average. Pretty nice as scenarios normally last 8-15 minutes. So about 20 motes or 2
in an hour.
Rumor has it that with Warlords of Draenor (patch 6.x) Spirits of Harmony won't be bound. Yes, totally unbound, not even account bound. All those dailies that requires huge amounts of spirits, like Living Steel, will become tremendously easier to get.
- You can make one Imperial Silk per day for free, or 3 Spirits per Imperial Silk plus mats.
- The same applies to Living Steel. One free daily, or 3 Spirits per Transmute plus mats.
So, that Sky Golem will become tremendously easier to make, and won't take forcibly 30 days. Ops, yes it will, since the Engineering daily can't be made faster with Spirits, being the only exception.
Making Imperial Silk bags will become a matter of how many Spirits can you gather, or how many alts can you plant the stuff.
Making it account-bound would make it easier to smuggle values between Horde / Alliance. But nobody wants that.
In Warlords Spirit of Harmony will lose its soulbound properties and can be traded!
On Warlords of Draenor beta these ARE unbound: I don't have one myself yet but I have an unbound
, and I've seen the Spirits on the AH. Also I compared tooltips on the vendor in the Shrine:
(only addition I made was the text saying which was which)
CONFIRMED: The spirits are going to be totally unbound as soon as the 6.0 pre-patch comes live. :D
Such a joy that those things are not soulbound anymore. I have at this moment about 320 plus spirits and will get more before the release of WOD hits. It is great for making
. Nice to give them to your alts. I was collecting
already for a long time, in the hope that the cool-down for
was gone to. I have in stock at this moment 603x
. The bigger bags (Hexweave Bag) are just 2 slots bigger. Not worth to spend your new cloth yet.
Edit 08-11-14: I notice a few days ago that the cool down we have to make that
we can do it everywhere now, not only at the Silken Fields in 4 winds.
so basically, im about to be able to buy my vial of the sands recipe and bug mount through these and restored artifacts and my dude, brann bronzebeard. im sick of farming mantid digs.
As of 6.0 the spirits of harmony are indeed NO LONGER soulbound. Trade away!
This is fantastic!
... thank you Blizzard.
For Archaeologists considering trading these in for
Enter happy, optimistic Chronos.
Hoping to kill two birds with one stone by trying to use these to complete the Tol'Vir rare artifacts while completing
The Seat of Knowledge
189 Mantid solves
280 Pandaren solves
377 Mogu solves
= 846 restored artifacts - 10 for
Crates of Tol'vir Archaeology Fragments
= 154 Tol'vir solves
= only 2 of 6 Tol'Vir rare artifacts
Exit bitter, grumbling Chronos.
In other news, probably better uses for 3
Spirits of Harmony
when 836 of them yielded nothing. Unless you're desperate.
These also may not decrease in price as much as you might think as they are used for
s, which tailors will likely continue to make throughout Warlords.
Why is there a market for these still in Warlords?
As of 6.2 you can
trade these for restored artifacts. *sigh*
I'm posting to try to unravel a mystery that may just stem from my own ignorance. Or maybe I missed a blue post or minor patch-notes nerf in the 6.2.x hotfix series.
The WoWhead database clearly indicates that Spirits of Harmony can be purchased with:
But on the WoWhead page for Spirit of Harmony there is
"Sold By" tab.
a bunch of NPCs
-- easy enough since that page
have a "Sold by" tab.
What gives? Can Spirits be bought at all? If so, who and/or where is the NPC? If not, can WoWhead please end my agony by correcting its database? Thanks.
Drastic price surges
For future reference: As I'm writing this we're just over three months into Legion.
As many already new expansions brings price changes to some older trade goods. Generally the goods of the previous expansion. Roughly speaking, either a previous useful trade goods becomes trash or a trade goods highly farmed becomes scarce and gains an increase in value.
The long term effect of inflation also brings price changes to trade goods.
Interestingly enough, as I looked over the prices of a number of useful MoP trade goods (two expansions back). I noticed a drastic surge in price coinciding with the Legion release date (September 1th 2016).
All skyrocketed, prices increasing with numbers around 50-150 % across all servers I viewed.
Similar price increases can be seen on some trade goods from other expansions. Though the pattern isn't as clear.
Three additional notes on the subject:
1. This can in no way be explained by inflation as it has not effected other types of items in any similar way.
2. With the release of Legion, wow saw a surge in returning players.
3. The time between the last patch of WoD (6.2) released 2015-06-23 and the launch of the next expansion Legion released 2016-09-01 was exceptionally long. This even caused some backlash due to players complained on the lack of new content.
My assumption would be that the drastic overnight changes was largely brought on due to the lack of content in WoD forcing people out into the older zones. Creating a strong supply of such materials. Thus keeping prices down for an extended period of time. And with the burst of content brought by Legion people quickly left the old zones causing supply to fall drastically.
Perhaps the large number of returning players and the implementation of the wardrobe function led to an increased demand for such trade gods. Which down the line often is crafted into transmog or mounts.
If this becomes a reoccurring pattern it would be theoretically be possible to double or even triple your gold in just weeks or months by investing in the correct trade goods before the launch of a new expansion.
Me personally haven't seen such a clear pattern between a release date and skyrocketing prices (on items unaffected by the release) before. Have you noticed similar occurrences during previous expansions? What do you think is the probable driving force behind it? Can it be mimicked for your gain during future expansions?
If you are farming these, I came up with a hint that might help you a little bit.
1. Create a 100 character trial monk.
2. Hearthstone - this unlocks the temporarily locked skills in your spellbook.
3. Zen pilgrimage
4. Mount up and fly north to Isle of Giants
5. Kill dinosaurs for
- I'm conducting... 108 bones, to be precise. Why are you looking at me like that? We've had this conversation before. I did the math. I need exactly 108 bones. Fewer would be inadequate. More would be absurd.
6. Visit Ku'ma
. He will give you 2 daily quests that rewards 1 mote and 1 spirit
7. Garrison Hearth
8. Mail your spirit and mote to your main.
9. Log out and delete character
It might not be the most efficient way of doing things, but it's not too bad. I haven't compared the efficiency of this method to those of farming, so I'm not responsible for any decrease of productivity if you try my method.
Please reply with statistic and see if my method is worthwhile.
A very good way to farm those, i found, is to farm the trash at the beginning of Heart of Fear, in 25 heroic (they do seem to loot more on heroic mode). There are really tons of mobs, neatly stacked up, and it's at the very beginning of the raid so it's a short run to clean, get out and reset.
Doing that, i collect around 10 to 20 motes per run (which takes around 1 or 2 minutes, counting the time to get back out)
Combine 10 of
Can't say that the drop-rate of Mote of Harmony, at the Heart of Fear is impressive.
I cleared the whole raid on heroic and got 12 motes for the effort...
Using the following macro:
Players were able to farm the trash before Imperial Vizier Zor'lok in Heart of Fear to farm Motes of Harmony. However, it appears that Blizzard has
nerfed the farm entirely. Players can no longer reset the raid while inside to respawn the trash, and there are far less mobs to farm.
I guess it was fun while it lasted.
There is another location that I've found to be a somewhat successful way of farming Motes of Harmony.
Make your way over to the cave located in Kun'lai Summit near the Temple of the White Tiger at 59, 52.
Here you can farm the
Mischeivious Snow Sprites
that roam around and are hiding inside the Suspicious Snow Piles. The sprites can drop Motes of Harmony, as well as many disenchanteable green items. I would suggest using a Bear Tartare to speed up the farming.
This farm isn't nearly as great as the Heart of Fear farm, but it's better than nothing I suppose!
I farmed Harmony between mid-January and mid-May 2021, as part of a project to make lower-cost Pandarian Jeweled Panther Mounts available to folks on my server (Drenden). My strategy has been to farm all the mats myself and then offer the mounts at half the markup they're usually sold for. Why? Because that's how I roll.
If you aggressively farm the Direhorn Mounts from Zandalari Warbringers, or if you aggressively kill Rares in Pandaria for any other reason, you will build up an inventory of Motes of Harmony. This isn't an efficient way to farm them, but it's useful if you're doing other things in Pandaria.
If you're willing to put one or more alt through the Tillers reputation, you can pay a bit less than 50 silver for each Mote of Harmony at the rate of 16 Motes a day per alt with a finished farm.
If you want to farm dungeons aggressively, I bow to Fortuna, but in my five months of experience I get a lot more Motes of Harmony by farming the first bit of Heart of Fear than I get by farming the first bit of Mogu'shan Vaults. I've convinced myself that I get more Motes by killing efficiently, but of course that's all just my projection onto Fortuna. Your experience will vary.
