This guide shows you one or more of the best and most efficient routes to farm Mote of Shadow in World of Warcraft Classic and is exactly what you need if you want to gather materials yourself instead of spending your gold on it on the auction house. If Mote of Shadow is not what you are looking for, you may take a look at all available farming guides.
Farming Motes of Shadow on the Hellfire Peninsula
Basically, the best place to farm Shadow Particles is the Arkatraz dungeon, but if you don’t have a group handy or prefer to farm alone, you can fall back on the Voidwalkers on the southeastern Hellfire Peninsula.
Farming Primal Shadow in Nagrand
If theres a lot of competition on the Hellfire Peninsula, you can take this spot instead. This one is also near some Earth Elementals in the south, if you want some Motes of Earth aswell.
Farming Motes of Shadow as Engineer – Shadowmoon Valley
The Zapthrottle Mote Extractor gives you the ability to farm Motes of Mana from Gas Clouds all over the area.
