Mote Farming in TBC
Kirin’var Village (Netherstorm) for primal manas. The mobs here respawn extremely fast and the area can probably support upwards of 5 people at a time. If you can’t kill things fast it can be nasty for casters as they spell reflect and mana burn. Wouldn’t recommend this area unless you are a dps class.
Skald (Blades Edge Mountains) for primal fires. Usually there are a lot of people here and the respawn rate isn’t great. There are also a lot of mobs that aren’t fire elementals that you will probably have to do this. Can probably support 3 or 4 people. If you can get this area to yourself it can be great.
Throne of Elements (Nagrand) for primal fires, primal waters and primal airs. This place is wildly over farmed. The thing that makes this area beastly is the fact that if you get it alone you can probably get 9 or 10 primals an hour if you are very fast. Anytime I happen to be online and bored at 4 AM I head over there and farm the shit out of it while it is empty. If there are a lot of people here, your better off farming elsewhere.
The Hand of Gul’dan (Shadowmoon Valley) for primal fires. I am personally not a fan of this area but if the other places are packed it is going to be a better choice.
Skettis (Terrokar Forest) for primal waters. This is generally the best all around spot for primal waters in my experience. The only downside is that they are all underwater which slows you down a fair bit. Usually there are few people farming these and the drop rate isn’t that much under the ones in Throne of Elements. I don’t really find farming primal lifes or earths particularly profitable at all. If you specifically need these primals you are far better off farming other ones, selling those and then buying the primals you need.
Addons are helpful!
There are many addons that make your gold farming easier. Here's the addons that I find most useful and helpful. Click Here for all addons
Shows everything on your map, and also creates routes on your map so you can maximize your gold making with professions.
Makes using auction house a lot easier. Read more from the Auction House section in this guide.
With this you can easily filter crappy items and other unwelcome things. This saves a lot of time! Once you are in game with this, type /lf to specify what items you don't like.
This saves and displays all the info about the mobs that you have slain. This also records all the loot that monsters have dropped, making it easier for you to see what mobs have dropped most of the items you are after for example.
This is not an addon, but this is still useful. It shows every object in the outdoor maps and where to find them! It's like google map.
