Primal Spirit is the new Spirit of Harmony
Funny story: back when Mists of Pandaria launched, I was at maximum level, but if the truth be told, I was still very wet behind the ears in terms of understanding the great cosmic gold-making wheel in World of Warcraft that rolls through the expansions.
One of the dumber things I did, was gather an substantial amount of Spirits of Harmony, and then have absolutely no clue what to do with them.
I did, the unthinkable.
Yes…I deleted them, when I needed the bag space.
This is the first expansion that I’m facing, with a much more informed head on my shoulders, a decent amount of beta time under my belt, and the proverbial First Class experience in terms of maximum bag allowance and alt storage space.
Say hello to my little friend…
Yes, there is an NPC at your garrison “Ashley Zerep” – right outside your Town Hall that will trade your Primal Spirit for other materials that you will need.
She is can be found here:
She is completely dwarfed by the Apexis Crystal Vendor (the Tauren) and Garrison Ford (lol!) – although I suspect Garrison Ford won’t be there when Warlords of Draenor goes live.
Let’s take a look at what she sells (screenshot edited to show all vendor pages)
You will also notice that we seem to have returned to a Cataclysm (and preceding expansion) style of crafting reagents…
Please take note of the following items:
A magical byproduct of Enchanting, Engineering, Jewelcrafting and Tailoring
A magical byproduct of Blacksmithing, Inscription, Jewelcrafting and Leatherworking
A magical byproduct of Alchemy, Blacksmithing, Enchanting and Engineering
A magical byproduct of Alchemy, Inscription, Leatherworking and Tailoring
You will want to gather and keep these because they are important for a number of high level recipes including the Hexweave Bag, several pets like the Elekk Plushie, the Riding Harness (new Leatherworking Mount) etc
Basically they function similarly to the Cataclysm Volatiles and WotLK Eternals.
Keep. Hoard. Use to craft. Buy when a bargain on the AH.
Savage Blood – this is the updated WoD version of Spirits of War, which is needed to craft Epic Gear. It’s also obtainable by having a Barn as one of your medium plot buildings, but in case you need more – you can trade Primal Spirit for it here.
The prices may seem high, but remember that in Mists of Pandaria we only received Mote of Harmony which had to be collected and stacked to 10 before we could trade them.
I hope this post has brought some information to those of you who are either new to World of Warcraft, or those returning after some time away, and if I can help anyone avoid a DERP DELETE moment, then it has been a worthwhile exercise.
TWO WEEKS! (I can’t say that, without impersonating that thing from Total Recall). TwOWeEkS *head swivels and explodes* TWO WEEKS! #wod
