Yeah, about Golden Lotus...

Professions
Post Limit:
PLEASE, improve the spawn rate and location for this herb. It is near impossible to level Alchemy without it and it will be impossible to get enough for a progression raiding guild. So PLEASE improve spawn rates and spawn locations. Thanks.
Impossible to level alchemy without it? Alchemy was so easy to level I did it on two chars for the living steel CD. I didn't use a single lotus.
I lvled it on 3 chars, 2 without lotus, just used a few on the other because I had them and wanted the transmuted gems. I agree it's too low though, only found 3 so far.
Find Krystel. Give her a Spirit of Harmony. Get three Golden Lotus.

Problem solved.

3 Golden Lotus isn't enough and a waste of a Spirit of Harmony.

The spawn rate needs to be increased or make them an extra drop from regular herbing like fel lotus was.
spirits are going to be worth very little when people start hitting revered with the tillers and start growing them and golden lotus prices are going to be HEAVILY effected by this.

Three golden lotus is currently a pretty compelling offer compared to the other options that most professions have.

Alchemy: Nine golden lotus are currently worth several times more than a living steel CD.
Inscription: Thirty golden lotus vs. a random Darkmoon card?
Jewelcrafting: Some people would rather learn an extra recipe than have nine golden lotus, but I wouldn't.
Tailoring: Nine golden lotus > one imperial silk.
Enchanting/Mining/Herbing/Skinning: No other options.

Only engineers, blacksmiths, and leatherworkers have any compelling alternative uses for Spirits.
how about blizzard just increases the amount of spirit harmoney's that drop...1 per 1/8 mobs isn't alot just saying..takes all day sometimes to get 3 spirits

The lotus are worth more than the living steel here...and I don't think OP is going to need them for his herbalism.
Leveling my Alchemy just fine, only gotten about 6 Lotuses so far. Used 3 for the stone and the rest have been for Gem transmutes.

You only really need them for flasks and the Gem transmutes everything else is just regular herbs.

Yeah the Spawn rate is low but it makes them all that more important. I have gone over hell and high water to get one when it shows up on my minimap.
Best thing about this???? Go get rep with tillers, plant motes of harmony. once exalted you get 16 motes a day. thats 11 spirit of harmony a week on 1 toon. turn em in for w/e ya need

It already is an extra drop from regular herbing.

My first fel lotus on my mage was from a Green Tea Leaf herb. I actually got 3 of them off of it too.
This is said with every one of these items, every expansion.

I remember the same thing about frost lotus/whatever else.

I do wish it popped in regular herbs more. My herber/miner goes crazy, doing entire zones. I've gotten 4 golden lotus total since I started, with enough tea leaves to supply Lipton.
I have to agree. In the last 3 days of non stop questing on my lock and not one single golden lotus.
I guess I've been luck. I've found alot of golden lotus on my miner/herber I think on Friday night in about a 2 hour span of farming I found 11 used 3 for my alchemist stone. Now the mote of harmony on the other hand :( WTB increased drop rate pst!!

^This.

Tons of the cheap-to-make potions stay orange most if not all of the way to 600. Also, if you learn the recipe to transmute 10 Ghost Iron Bars --> Trillium Bar, just spam that for 5 point skillups until you're 600. Super easy.
I'm not sure about you, but I was sitting on over 50 + Golden Lotus.

Thing is very readily available.

Care to share? Very readily available is a bit of a reach.

I've harvested thousands of herbs and spent considerable time in Jade, Kun-Lau, and Valley, but have only found 4.
There's no one specific spot. I would suggest checking wowhead though. It may very well provide a revelation to you, as to where to get this.
I've leveled alchemy on 2 characters and have used 0 lotus - you are doing something wrong.
