Eons ago, I posted a discussion and speculation thread about AoE looting and instance farming.
I wanted to gather some ideas and even grandfather in desired farmable instances at that time (before AoE looting) into one nifty guide for people to come to, look at, and try their hand at various instances for some AoE looting fun and income.
However, I have neglected the guide for quite a while.
Throughout stormspire, there are scattered various guides and videos to framing not only instances, but also world locations, especially for things like motes of harmony.
This guide isn't intended to take away glory or credit from people who have posted guides and videos about farming spots utilizing AoE looting, but rather to consolidate all the good info into one quick reference guide.
I will also be engaging in some self experimentation and coming back with my own recommendation of instances and places to farm with AoE looting.
If you have a guide or video you would like to contribute, then just reply! I'll be thumbing through stormspire to gather the popular ones. Let me know if I missed yours =)
I'll clean up this OP once the content starts rolling in and turn it into a more formal guide/reference thread.

It's no doubt AoE looting has made our questing and travels easier. But what about making gold?
Before AoE looting, many instances were not favorable as legit means for making gold. But much of that has changed.
Throughout Stormspire and other gold making blogs and communities, people have posted their 2 cents on making gold by utilizing AoE looting.
I present you with a consolidated list of great sources and guides to help you fully utilize AoE looting's potential.
I recommend that you bring along with the following supplies when farming:
A vendor, such as Traveling Tundra Mammoth, Jeeves, Argent Squire,
Quick regen items, such as Resin
Set your hearth to a nearby inn of your favorite farming spot, and bring your Cloak of Coordination to get back to Org/SW
Spirit of Harmony farming:
1) Kun'lai Summit Sprite cave. Credits- @Willifer for the thread. @Faid for the video.
Pros- The sprites have a pretty good respawn rate, and are easy to kill. This spot is also good for non 90s.
Cons- The cave is also utilized by a quest, meaning you may have people coming in to kill sprites.
2) VoFW Turtles. Credits- @siren for the thread.
Pros- This spot is amazing. The turtles have a very high respawn rate that depends on how quick you kill them. The faster the better.
The turtles also drop meat which can be turned in for Ironpaw Tokens.
Cons- This spot was recently nerfed. However, it's still very viable. It's also hard to get the full potential out of this spot solo. A friend or 2 is preferred to get full use of this spot.
I still recommend it none the less.
3) Dread Wastes Zan'Vess
4) Townlong Steppes Nizhau
1) Hellfire Ramparts Runecloth/Netherweave. Credits- @taro for the thread.
Pros- Amazing. Quick. Efficient. You can get several stacks of cloth within minutes. Also, by switching the difficulty from normal to heroic, you can get netherweave instead of runecloth.
Cons- It's an instance, so you will likely hit your instance limit within 20 minutes.
2) ICC 5 mans Frostweave
Transmog Gear farming:
1) Battered Hilt farming. Credits- @zenga for reminding the community of this. I'll be writing up a more formal and informative guide on this.
