Primal Shadow in Shadowmoon Valley with Engineering

Guide Overview

Welcome to the RXP Gold Assistant’s Guide to Engineering Primal Shadow in Shadowmoon Valley. 

For this round of farming in the fel zone, we are chasing fel clouds, so get your mote extractor and goggles ready. If you have a gathering profession your results might be even better.

The main items you are farming in this guide are Motes of Shadow by sucking them up with your Zapthrottle Mote Extractor.

We’ve rated this farm as 3/5 which means that there will be medium competition and gold per hour will fluctuate as such.

We hope you enjoy the route and best of luck farming!

Routes & Locations

Know your route

Farming mote clouds is quite different from herbing and mining as they tend to move around a bit. So don’t be afraid to stray away from our route but do try to come right back to it.


Clouds can move to strange places around the zone so having goggles helps a lot to track them.

Side hustle

Since clouds have a longer respawn rate, it helps to have another gathering profession. Another option is to kill some demons for marks or blood elfs for signets, on your way around the zone.
