Dread Amber Shards and Motes of Harmony

General Discussion
The klaxxi rep drops (dread amber shards) are incredibly, horrendously low this needs to be addressed the drop rate seems to be around 1% I spent an hour doing dailys and killing random mobs and only got 1-2 shards. ALSO Motes of Harmony needs a slight bump in drop rate %. It is difficult to make gear at the current rate as a blacksmith. I need 27 (10 for the 2 weapons and 17 for the recipes) to craft for my 2 specs and it is DREADFULLY Slow to get the drops. I went a good 70+ kills once without getting a single mote drop! Leveling to 90 I quested most of the way, and I got enough motes for 6 spirits of harmony. (60 motes out of how many thousands (2k+) of mobs one needs to kill) I made my main spec weapon and I am running heroics for gear because making the gear is WAY too time consuming. Basically the amount of time needed to farm the soulbound crafting mats is not productive to advance and because it is not productive it is even less fun. I normally do not mind farming for mats but this has been ridiculous.
Did you know about being able to grow motes on your farm when you're revered with the Tillers? It's something I'd suggest every crafter seriously considers doing.
Slow down! Life is to be savored!

Seriously, relax. This raid tier is going to last us for a while and you'll get your gear as you grind out the motes needed.

They want us to relax and pace ourselves and the constant 'rush rush rush all dailies all reps get that rare! oh god, time to farm and then i need to go do some arch and ow my brain just cramped', all that nonsense is getting tiresome.

All of these things do not need to be done all at the same time, kids.
I never had an interest in farmville on facebook, but now to craft I need to do so in WoW. :/

Thank you. I am so glad i am not the only person who sees this.
I didn't know you could grow motes on a farm from the tillers... this is rather interesting and I will look into it thanks for the input.

@Vasparian... wanting a slight bump in the drop rate is not asking for blizz to "have things handed to you like they are candy" ... killing 15-20 mobs for a drop is work and it also takes time and guess what... it is still farming. At the current rate it seems it takes about 40-50 kills before they drop.

It's not at all about how difficult the task is to complete.
'tis funny, I found like 6 off of the mobs down my The Venomous Ledge in like 10 minutes. :3

No. You can't have things handed to you like they are candy. Work for it, or you can't have it.


But.. But i love free candy... Dx
Dread Amber Shards could use a slight bump in drop rate. But Motes of Harmony rate is fine as it already seems like it did get a bump. Revered Tillers can get 12 motes a day and Exalted ones can get 16 motes a day.

Absolutely! The relationship meters with the NPC's and the peaceful collecting of the goods. It's easy to see where their influences were. Pretty sure the devs aren't huge farmville nerds.

Yeah, start farming. It's not that bad. I think it's fun; that's kind of subjective, not everybody will, but at least it's easy. I'm kind of overwhelmed by spirits of harmony at this point for something that takes me five minutes to do each day. Pretty awesome.
I was getting crazy Mote drops yesterday in Four Winds. I got 15 Motes just on my dailies. Was able to make my gloves a day early :)
The shards i dont know really, i was getting some consistently. Even two at once, once. Then i've been going for like an HOUR without 1! :'( im 4 bars from exalted, i just wanna make sure i can be there tomorrow! lol They def need a bump.

No it doesn't. You necroed a thread from last year without even considering that when this thread was made, you had to have TWENTY shards instead of five.

nice necro.
