Mote of Shadow / Primal Shadow farming

I made this Mote of Shadow farming guide to help out players who want to farm motes instead of buying them from the Auction House.

Primal Shadow comes from combining 10 Mote of Shadow, so if you need Primal Shadow, you have to farm Mote of Shadow.

The Arcatraz

The Arcatraz is located East of Netherstorm, it's near the raid instance Tempest Keep. You will see 3 platforms floating in the sky, Arcatraz is the highest floating platform, considerably higher than the others. (picture of the entrance) There will be bars on the instance entrance, just simply click to unlock them.

Killing Negaton Warp-Masters and Negaton Screamers at The Arcatraz is the best way to farm Mote of Shadow.

One run takes 2-3 minutes and you get around 9-12 Mote of Shadow.

After you killed the mobs, go outside and reset the Instance by right clicking over your own portrait then click the "Reset all instance" button. This restarts the whole instance and all mobs will be back. You can only reset an instance 10 times in an hour.

You should use [Bear Tartare] if you have a level 101 character.



Hellfire Peninsula

If you can't solo The Arcatraz, you can farm Mote of Shadow at Void Ridge in Hellfire Peninsula.

You will find a lot of voidwalker mobs at the marked location, they all have really fast respawn time, so you can farm here without downtime.

WoW Leveling Guide 1-110 Do you want to reach level 110 fast?

I recommend Zygor's Leveling Guide. The guide is in an small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quest is included. You’ll never have to switch back to a website, or even the in-game main map to see where you have to go or what’s next. The guide is available for both Horde and Alliance.

I use Zygor's guide for leveling and I highly recommend it.
