    Literally farming.

    On your farm.

    The Tillers Farm is a nice boost to your standard gain of Mote's, once you have the farm upgraded (and the rep) for just a few minutes a day you can plant 16 Songbell Seed's and harvest them the next day.

    The other way to gain them is simply to kill stuff, but I wouldn't purposely grind for motes - between the farm and your day to day dungeons/dailys etc. you should get 2-3 a day I guess, add on top any extra grinding you do for other purposes.

    So you can get the mote of harmony by every mob you kill in pandria, it is just a matter of luck?

    If you farm by killing mobs, yes.

    If you farm with your Tiller farm, you know you'll at least get 16 motes each harvest.

    Thanks a lot. But do any of you know the dropchance when farming by killing?

    Not very high. IN the 2 days of rather casual play compared to others(dinged to 87, cleared jade forest and half of vale) and I got about 25 motes. From over thousand+ of dead mobs. So you're looking at approximately 2-3% dropchance if every mob counts. That's for myself only, so the results may vary. My play time in pandaland so far is roughly 10 hours.

    As mentioned, motes have a really low drop rate. Your best bet in getting them is to either find an area with rapidly spawning mobs to just aoe farm or have a gathering profession as you can get motes from mining, skinning, or herbalism so you can try and kill two birds with one stone.

    Wut?

    I have literally mined over 2000 ghost iron ore (prospected 100 stacks on another char) and have not seen a single mote come from a vein. Its pretty painful since I need a ton of them

    I swear I got some bonus trillium from regular veins once or twice, but I was pretty tired at the time so not sure.

    I appear to be wrong about the gathering thing. Could have sworn I read something about them being obtained via gathering professions but can't find that source anymore.

    I was under the impression we were to get motes drop from mining and herbing and prospected ores...so far I haven't gotten any from mining ....herbing or prospecting.....I do know once your rev with tillers you can grow them .....

    Literally farming for motes via Tillers has single-handedly convinced me to grind rep with them, across all characters.

    If you do all the dailies you get about 5 motes per cluster.
    They also drop in dungeons btw.

    Low just go wehre there are LOTS of small low health mobs I already found my spot. I can out 1 mote per 30 minute maybe more It was hard the mobs where 90 and I was 85, at 90 it will eb like a breeze.
    ENGLISH ISNT MY MAIN SPEC
    YOU NOW BREATH CONSCIOUSLY

    As 90 I farmed some lower level mobs for their meats. I got about a mote per 5 minutes. Still takes a while to get 10, but if you really aim for killing small stuff somewhere just for motes I can see how it would go pretty fast.

    According to one of the comments on wowhead:

    It appears the drop rate is

    10% + 1% x ( Mob level - 85)

    In other words

    85 - 10%
    86 - 11%
    87 - 12%
    88 - 13%
    89 - 14%
    90 - 15%

    Although it feels lower than that. But if this calculation is correct, the higher the level, the better the chance at getting a mote.
