10 Mote of Mana (
) can be turned into 1 Primal Mana.
best mobs to farm these (and spot) is
the trick is to kill them fast (under 10sec seems to be about right)
if you dont the mageslayers will use spellreflect and the mana seeker will use mana burn
if you kill them fast enough as a caster they wont do anything! (they have about 5200hp each)
one hour = 7-10 motes for me (i need 6sec for one mob 0/21/40 wl)
I seem to have better luck with the Mana Wraiths near Area 52.
Farmed about 3 Primal Manas in an hour.
The Mana Seekers and Mageslayers in Wizard Row have the best drop rate outside of Karazhan, at least in terms of how many you can find. Mana Wraiths are good as well, but I only recommend them if Wizard Row is full of people.
As an Arcane/Fire mage (41/20), I can manage 8-10 Primal mana per hour, depending on how many farmers are nearby.
It's easy enough to farm these in wizard row if you're a warlock, priest or mage without having to worry about going OOM or eating your own spell. Spell reflect is mostly a problem for nukers (not affliction warlocks), but then maybe not if you're decently geared and do enough DPS to make them die before the mageslayers cast spell reflect. As for the mana seekers and their mana burn, a simple spell lock, counterspell or silence will do fine.
This will also work for any other mobs that drain mana--whether netherskates in shadowmoon valley or mana wyrms in netherstorm.
The assorted elementals that drop motes of mana are generally immune to poison and arcane effects. The beasts, however, are not.
These are very easy to farm at Wizard Row using a feral druid. I usually only need to heal every 30 minutes which is perfect since I need to refresh MoTW and OOC anyway. I just run around hitting mangle on the mobs, their physical damage is very weak. No need to worry about mana drain or spell reflect, if the Mana Seekers start to cast slow just hit them with maim and shred them.
I made roughly 5000g in 2 weeks of farming 3-4hours a day, which didn't include selling greens. I did sell a few jewelcrafting designs on the AH for quite a bit though.
So if you're feral and you need some cash this is a very easy place to get it.
Seriously i would farm more for primal mana at netherstorm !! Then sell it for gold
I farm 20 mana one day... respawn rate good at Wizard Row...:p
If you are an herbalist, Netherwing Ledge in Shadowmoon Valley is another pretty good place to farm these as well if you're still grinding rep for Netherwing, as the nether rays there sometimes drop these motes and you can sometimes get 1-3 off netherdust bushes too. I'm not sure if this is as effective or more effective than the other places mentioned, but at the very least it's an extra perk for grinding Netherwing rep.
The mageslayers and mana seekers are easiest to farm as an afflict lock...
DoT, DoT, DoT as many as you're comfortable handling at a time (I like to play with five at a time, but I'm on a PvE server. :P)
Drain soul will more than likely give you mana back having specced for it, so just remember to do that as they're going down and mana burn won't be a problem.
If you happen to get ~50% health as you're having fun- Howl, be sure your DoTs are on a mob and apply Curse of Shadow, and drain back to full.
Rinse, repeat, and reap your motes. Easy, easy.
If you still need some extra mana, you may have to steal some from your imp. Oh, nos!
Despite what you may see here, it does take ten motes to create a primal. What you see here is actually a quirk of the way Blizzard handles the spell. On Blizzard's end, a two-step process occurs:
You use the first mote, destroying it in the process.
A spell is cast, which destroys the other nine motes, and creates a primal.
This spell here--step two--is the spell that gets listed here on Wowhead.
I also found them easy to find off eels in the lake northeast of Shatt
i an confirm that the mana wraiths drop them. also, the phase hunters in netherstorm (around 40,54) drop a nice supply.
The motes for these are best grinded off the mana wraiths in netherstorm. They have about a 30% drop chance. You can make good cash off these.
The screen shot shows Primal Mana to Primal Fire, not Fire to Mana. Probably still a discovery, though.
These are a pain to farm compared to others such as primal air or fire, and they sell for less on my server I usually just buy these instead of farming them.
you can find them west of Stormspire, however they are immune to arcane. You can burn em down pretty quick though.
many ppl are grinding this primal its has good drop rate and its expensive U can find it west or west-south from area 52 or east of netherstorm where the violet tower is with the Quests some elements are around there (mana-wraith).. i am grinding primal mana every day i can get 4 (primal) in 1h. If no one is around double as that gl try it late at night it always work and u got the whole area free for u
its 20-25 g each in ah

I learned the transmutation from fire to mana at lvl 65, while transmuting earth to water. So you learn it randomly and its not related to primal might.
If this is so easy to farm, why would it be sold for around 15-20g per stack
to farm. I find the best place is too loop through an area along the chasm to the south east of Area 52 by some ruins. A dozen or so nether rays patrol there and drop motes quite often. When theyr all dead, head over along the chasm till you see all the elementals. The warp aberitions (they look like air elementals) drop them pretty regularly and theyr not too hard to kill (I'm an arms warrior with pretty bad gear, so elementals are usually tough for me). When you clear them all the way to the Heap, head back for the respawned nether rays. I can get a primal about every ten minutes on a good run. I'll have my Fireguard in no time!
Farming these are so easy. My favorite spot is in Netherstorm(kirin'var village). I can get maybe 3-4 primals and a couple motes in about an hour. As an arms warrior(soon respecing prot), not terrible gear, its more for tanking, they go down fast and easy. Great spot.

1 primal and 1 mote in 10 minutes @ Kirin'Var Village in Netherstorm.
EDIT: after 15 minutes I have 2 primals and 3 motes, same place.
Edit2: after about 30 minutes I have my 4 primals
Wizard's Row in Netherstorm has got to be the best place to grind out primal mana. The two types of mobs there (mana seeker, and arcane elementals) both have a VERY good drop rate.
**A good tip for herbalists though, you can get motes of mana off netherbloom and mana thistle in netherstorm and netherwing ledge (SMV).**
Verified, Kirin'Var Village in Netherstorm. 2 Primals in 15 min. High respawn rate, got this with a shaman and an alliance mage who were also farming them. Never had to wait even with the 3 of us there. Just stay around the magekillers and voidwalker lookin ones and you will be set. Also great is that these xmute to fire so I wont have to put up with the terrible fire drop rate to get the 14 primals I need for my Leatherworking set. GL
I've found another great spot for farming if ur a melee figher, especially rogue/warrior. There is a field just north of the arklon ruins in netherstorm crawling with nether rays and phase hunters. These guys do PHYSICAL damage unlike the guys in kirin'var, which do ARCANE damage. I.E. your armor will help when you kill these guys. The drop rate is about the same, and while the monsters are a tad less dense, no one ever farms there and the downtime is minimal, espeically if you wear plate like I do.
hi i am a full epic lock..and and i can have to pull 5 and 5 at the time but thay eat my mana..is there a place to farm better for mana char?
I got 5 Primals in 40 minutes of farming at Wizard Row.
I'm an Elemental Shaman and this obviously included drinking and eating every 15 kills or so.
In my opinion, best ever place to farm mote of mana is North-East of Arklon Ruins in Netherstorm.
I'm a Fire Mage but never died here even though you will have to take mana breaks as they do drain mana.
It's near impossible to die here in my opinion. I had a max of 4 attacking me at any one time.
Phase Hunters are pretty much immune to frost nova, they can break out of it so are harder than nether rays imo.
This is a good way of earning gold between lv 67 - 69
(Farming fire/mana was how I got from 69 to 70 when I had no more quests to do :P)
Mote of Mana dropped from Nether Rays and Phase Hunters
Nether Ray - 48% drop rate. (After 3 hours-ish of farming)
Phase Hunter - 37% drop rate. (After 3 hours-ish of farming)
Total motes in 3 hours-ish: 90
I suggest transmuting to Primal Fire then selling to AH as Primal Fire sells at better price than mana.
Madhax, Elemental Shaman of Malygos
Pretty $%^&ty. 1 heroic purples, rest quest blues and greens. (Look me up if your THAT interested)
Adept's Elixir, Bonfire's Blessing
Wizard Row, Netherstorm (55,87)
Time Spent Farming:
87(8 Primal Manas)
34g, 12s, 74c (From selling their gray drops)
9 Greens, 0 Blues, 0 Purples
Hits like a #$%^&
Have a spell reflect that reflects 1 spell cast upon them back to caster.
Mote drop rate was 54% (45/84)
ALSO hits like a &*!@#
Has a mana burn.
Mote drop rate was 37% (63/171)
REEEEALLLY good farming spot. As you can tell The Mana Seekers were the dominant mob. It's a small area so you don't need to run around a lot. Respawns are fast, I never had to sit and wait for a mob to respawn. There is a repair guy like 30 seconds away where you can sell %^&* and instantly jump back in. All in all, very good farming spot. I would suggest it if you need to farm primal manas or some quick cash.
Now after this are my primal airs. GG BLIZZARD! Make us need to collect motes from mobs that are immune to our 3 most used spells. Earthshock, Lightning bolt, AND chain Lightning.
