Mote of Harmony, Spirit of Harmony

Professions
From what I see the drop rate is around 1%. From what I've read it's much lower.

So if I ever want to make a level 85 staff that takes 2 spirit of harmony's to level with, i'll be 90 by the time I can make it. Then the level 90 staff which takes 5, well, that is just not going to happen for me. It would be impossible to make one for yourself, let alone sell one on the ah.

From what I've read on wowhead, you can "farm" them after grinding rep and doing dailies OVER AND OVER again. Looks like you need to be 90 for that.

I don't deal well with stupidity, and this is way over the edge. I rarely do daily's because I have a job. I want to play a game.

Guess this is another xpac i won't be playing.
I don't know if this is helpful or not, but my hunter at 85 about 2/3 of the way through the first area, Jade Forest, has gotten 6 of the motes of harmony. I don't consider my looting to be rather lucky. Usually if people get it in 1 or 2 tries it takes me 10. Guess I am just saying it may not be as bad as you think.
Hmm weird.
I have played for a total of about 5 hours on 2 toons and had 8 motes drop on this one and 2 motes drop on my mage.
I've not finished Jade Forest and have one SoH. Other players have said that they seem to drop more frequently from higher leveled mobs.
Played for a few hours yesterday got 9 to drop.
Im about 3/4's of the way to 87, and just started questing in the Valley and I've gotten 2 Harmony's and about 2 motes. I guess I'm a little luckier than most, but that still seems kind of low for the amount of them you need for certain items/patterns/etc.
I'm 1/4 through level 86 and I have collected a total of 1 mote. RNG not on my side it seems.
The worse part of all this BoP with this item is duel gathering toons are going to be punished for a long time till they change the status on them.....They should of made these things BoA.
I do agree that a BOA system with these motes is a bit more desirable. Knowing blizzard, they will more than likely be doing something to answer the public outcry at the inefficiency of the new system.

That being said......

I do enjoy the crafting element of the game, and am somewhat welcoming of the challenge it takes to craft now, although it could get annoying later on.
I am 87 with 17 motes, My gatherer is 85.25 just from mining/herbing and has 7. On beta their where 2 known areas that seemed to be consistent around 10%

Then why do you put apostrophes in plurals?

My gatherer can turn in a spirit for 3 lotus, 3 lotus currently are 1k gold each. So for my dual gatherer 1 spirit = 3k gold.

Currently I am looking at buying a Mist-Piercing Goggles made by engineers, currently they are selling for 5k and use 2 spirits. So for a engineer 1 Spirit = 2.4k gold. How are dual gatherers being punished again?
The whole Spirit of Harmony system is terrible. In an expansion where they constantly touted increasing the play options for people they decided to severely restrict that of the tradeskill alt army players. They need to be unbound entirely, like motes in every other expansion.
Well, wowhead shows between 6 and 67 percent drop rate, it's obviously not live data they pulled that from.

I think someone got there calculations wrong, or more likely misplaced a decimal point from the numbers I get.
I have leveled now to around 87.5 and I have 2 spirits and an additional 8 motes. I am assuming by the time I hit 90 that I will have 5-6 spirits in total. We'll see what happens though.

The drop rate has gotten much better with the lvl 86 and lvl 87 mobs.

I personally like the idea of a required rare material not needing multiple people to acquire it. We'll see how it goes as time goes on. I'm going to assume that we're going to see them as BoA eventually.

Ha Thanks Mate! You reminded me to check the Ah for the Mist-Piercing Goggles as my Engineer has no motes atm and well I found one on the AH for 450g :)
As long as you are killing mobs you should get enough by the time you actually need it. At level 88 and already have 5 spirits and some motes.
Heres a tip i learned too late.

In the Jade Forest dungeon, the quest line where you actually do a bunch of quests inside, not the actual dungeon..

The little water droplet elemental seem to have a HUGE drop rate, compared to other mobs at that level.

Farm these while you can, because once you complete the quest chain inside, it becomes the dungeon and you can not go back in.

Because you'll need a production + gathering combo if you want to actually make the highest level profession items .
