Spirits of Harmony are found all over the continent of Pandaria. They are the new elemental trade good, which is both Bind on Pickup and a random world drop. They are created by combining 10 Motes of Harmony, so technically you’ll be farming Motes of Harmony not Spirits of Harmony.
In order to Farm Motes of Harmony or Spirits of Harmony, you’ll want to find a place that fit some of the following criteria:
- High density, closely packed and/or high respawn rate.
- Easy to pull, usually this means melee mobs that don’t cast but will instead run up to you after you tag them
- Low HP, armor, resistence and damage – something you can kill a lot of without taking long breaks
- Multi-purpose: This is the most important. You might as well farm something that gives you something else you need or is valuable.
You can “farm” Motes of Harmony by planting Songbell Seeds so long as you’re also revered with the Tiller. I won’t go into much detail about this, because it’s not the type of farming that I’m talking about.
Since Spirits of Harmony are Bind on Pickup, you can’t sell them on the auction house, send them to your other character or trade them with friends. If you do not have a crafting profession to use one of these in, then you can visit either Krystel (Alliance) or Danky (Horde), they are both found in their respective faction cities. They will sell you things like Windwool Cloth, Golden Lotus, Ironpaw Tokens, Trillium Ore, Leather and Serpent’s Eye. I don’t know which one is the best to buy, you’ll have to check prices and figure that out yourself.
Update: You can make a lot of gold with Spirit of Harmony, but if you want to step it up and make thousands of gold you should read my personal favorite guide.
Where to Farm Spirit of Harmony
Farming Spirit of Harmony in Dread Wastes
The best place to farm Spirit of Harmony is in Dread Wastes, for several reasons: First, in Dread Wastes you can use both a Klaxxi Augmentation and Klaxxi Enhancement. There are 5 choices of each so you will want to pick the one that works best for your playstyle. Second, most mobs throughout the zone give The Black Prince reputation, which is a neat bonus. Third, it’s a level 90 zone so you’ll have a chance to find rare herbs (Golden Lotus) and ore (Trillium). Fourth, you’ll find Dread Amber Shards which can help you boost your Klaxxi rep.
Okay, so where in Dread Wastes? Many players like Zan’Vess, where you’ll find huge groups of melee mobs (easy to pull) who also drop Windwool Cloth. It’s really an all around ideal place:
Farming Leather and Spirits of Harmony
A second option in Dread Wastes is to farm around Star Lake. This is an ideal option if you’re a Skinner. While the mob respawn and density isn’t as good, you’ll be spending a lot of time skinning which will help increase the number of mobs available. It’s also marked on the map above.
Tip: Have you ever wondered how players have so many level 85s or how they can level an 85 so quickly? I use and strongy recommend Zygor's in-game leveling addon which will enable you to level in 5 days of played time. You can find a free version of it here.
