    Post Zapthrottle Mote Extractor

    Zapthrottle Mote Extractor

    Another one of the ways to make money with engineering is the Zapthrottle Mote Extractor. This handy device allows the engineer to see gas clouds on the mini-map. Unlike other resource nodes, gas clouds are mobile so sometimes you must wait for them to travel out of an unreachable area to a more accessible area. When you extract from the gas clouds, you will receive 3-5 motes or crystallized eternals depending on which cloud you are extracting from. These gas clouds are numerous and the low population of engineers makes for less competition. Here is the list of where to find the various gas clouds and what they produce.

    Felmist - Shadowmoon Valley - Motes of Shadow
    Swamp Gas - Zangarmarsh & Steamvault - Motes of Water
    Arcane Vortex - Netherstorm - Motes of Mana
    Windy Cloud - Nagrand - Motes of Air

    Steam Cloud - Sholazar Basin & Borean Tundra - Crystallized Fire & Water
    Cinder Cloud - Sholazar Basin, Wintergrasp, & Dragonblight - Crystallized Fire
    Arctic Cloud - Howling Fjord, Dragonblight, Storm Peaks, & Icecrown - Crystallized Air & Water

    So if you are an engineer, make sure to complete your quest to create your extractor and carry it with you at all times. My favorite spot to farm Crystallized Fire to create Eternal Fires is at the Cauldren of Flames in Wintergrasp where you can kill the revenants and elementals as well as pick up 2 cinder clouds in the same area as well as a titanium node. Then while waiting for respawns, I fly just below into Dragonblight and grab the Cinder Cloud outside the Obsidian Dragonshrine and the Arctic Cloud towards the Wrathgate and loop back to the Cauldren of Flames.

    Do you have any great spots that allow you to access the clouds while farming other things?

    This is defiantly a good item to pick up, I have been using this until fire eternals went down in price I was making quite a lot of gold from gathering these while farming saronite.

    Had always toyed with the idea of leveling an engineer, If i'd know about this item i may have done it months ago.
