Spirits of Harmony are one of the bind on pickup materials that any crafter needs, in order to be able to craft end game, Pandaria items. In other words, any crafter has to farm their Mote of Harmony, combine them 10 by 10 to make Spirits of Harmony, and use them in their crafts. There are many places where you can farm Mote of Harmony, but the one I’m going to describe here, is one of the best, if not the best. Also, due to the fact that the mobs here are humanoid type, they drop a fair amount of Windwool Cloth. Therefore, if you farm here with a Tailor that has Northern Cloth Scavenging, this spot also can be considered a good spot for Windwool Cloth.
- Minimum level 90;
- Tailoring minimum skill 325;
- Northern Cloth Scavenging;
- 3 x Potion of Luck (for one hour of farming);
- AoE spec.
Where to go:
Teleport to Pandaria, fly to Nayeli Lagoon (52,75) and from there go a bit south-west, to the Unga Ingo island.
What to do:
Start grinding on the Unga Villager monkeys here, and make sure you use a Potion of Luck every 20 minutes, to keep the buff up. You will find the biggest concentrations of mobs at (45,90) and (43,90), spots where you can easily pull them in large packs and AoE them down. However, it’s best to roam the island and pull every Unga that you see. They’re all level 87, easy to defeat with a level 90 character.
Also, visit the most eastern point of the island, up on the hills where the wrecked ship hull is, to check out if Spriggin (level 87, rare) is up. He drops various stuff, most of it being BoP, but he also drops Spriggin’s Sproggin’s Leggin’ – very nice BoE leggings. Sprigging pops quite often. On my last session at Unga Ingoo, I found him two times and was lucky enough to get the leggings each time.
Spriggin is not a very difficult mob, but make sure you avoid his spinning banana ability (Bananarang, or something).
After one hour of grinding on the Unga Villagers at Unga Ingo, I got 28 Plundered Treasures thanks to the Potions of Luck, which lead to the following valuable loot:
Windwool Cloth x 320 = 50g / stack = 800g
White Trillium Ore x 14 = 6g / each = 84g
Black Trillium Ore x 7 = 8g / each = 56g
Jade Squash x 6 = 2g / each = 12g
Striped Melon x 6 = 2g / each = 12g
Green Item x 13 = 400g
Spriggin’s Sproggin’s Leggin’ x 2 = 300g / each = 600g
Mote of Harmony x 35
Cash (after selling the trash loot) = 340g
TOTAL: 2304g after 1 hour of farming.
The 3 Luck Potions I’ve used were 30g / each, so substracting that amount from the final sum, would be 2214g.
It’s best to come here with a Paladin, because the mobs have a nasty slow effect which makes their pulling a bit troublesome. A Paladin’s Hand of Freedom can really help in this case. However, if you don’t have a Pally, try body-pulling as many mobs as you can, while you’re mounted. You’ll be able to move a tad faster, even if you have several stacks of slow on you, and sometimes even escape the slows.
It’s best to come and farm here early mornings, to make sure you don’t have competition. Even though the mobs have a decent respawn rate, if there are 2-3 other players farming them, you’ll be out of mobs in no time.
The mobs on the Unga Ingoo island don’t have an outstanding loot drop rate though, compared to other mobs in the game. However, since the mobs are easy to kill, with a nice respawn rate, you can still get a ton of valuable loot, and a good amount of Windwool Cloth, if you’re a Tailor.
There is another way to grind up to 16 Mote of Harmony per day, by working the plots of land at Halfhill in Valley of the Four Winds, by sowing Songbell Seeds.
