Introduction


Eternals are the follow-ups of the Primals.

There are 6 Eternals: Air, Water, Shadow, Fire, Earth and Life.

Eternal Air, average AH price is 50G.

Eternal Water, average AH price is 10G.

Eternal Shadow, average AH price is 10G.

Eternal Fire, average AH price is 50G.

Eternal Earth, average AH price is 5G.

Eternal Life, average AH price is 50G.

Eternals are used in almost every high-end crafting profession, from Alchemy to Enchanting. In most cases it is better to farm Eternals than normal gold grinding, it will give you a higher gold/hour ratio.

As you can see, Eternal Life, Fire, Air are worth far more than Eternal Water, Shadow and Earth. This is based on WoWhead and on my own server economics. Note that the prices may vary per server!

Note:

1) You can do Eternal farming alongside Daily circuits or gathering materials for Alchemy as an example.

2) Wintergrasp is a place where almost all Eternals can be farmed, but be careful: Wintergrasp is a PvP area.

3) Example: You need 10x Crystallized Fire to create Eternal Fire.
This applies to any of the Eternals we talked about before.

4) You can only farm in Wintergrasp when your faction is in control!

5) Herbalists can get additional Crystallized Life from herbs, Miners can get additional Crystallized Earth from mining nodes.

Eternal Fire


There are several places to farm Crystallized Fire

  • Wintergrasp

    Wintergrasp is a good place to go. Flaming Revenants and Raging Flames will be your targets. Look at the map above to find them. I recommend going to the bigger area where the mobs are mixed, this is by far the best place to farm them.

  • The Storm Peaks

    Besides Wintergrasp, The Storm Peaks is a good place to go, too.
    Your targets will be Seething Revenants and Wailing Winds, shown in the map above. The drop rate is lower than in Wintergrasp, but still decent.
    Note: drops Relic of Ulduar. These can be turned in for Airy Pale Ale, Worg Tooth Oatmeal Stout and much more.

Eternal Air


There are plenty of spots to farm Crystallized Air, but I'll give you the ones that will give you the highest drop rate.

  • Wintergrasp

    And again, we are in Wintergrasp. But not for Fire , for Air this time! You will be hunting on Tempest Revenants and Whispering Winds, shown in the map about. These two have the best drop rate on Crystallized Air out there. They are spread throughout the area marked on the map.

  • Sholazar Basin

    Storm Revenants in Stormwright's Shelf have a decent drop rate, too. There are plenty in the area, as you can see in the map above.
    Note: while you're here, you can farm Crystallized Water, too!

  • The Storm Peaks

    If you don't want your grinding to be interrupted, Howling Hollow is the place to be. Scion of Storms will be your target, as show in the map above. Here you won't get interrupted by other mobs attacking you and they have a ~30% drop rate on Crystallized Air.
    Note: drops Relic of Ulduar.

Eternal Life


This'll be a bit harder to farm assuming you aren't a Herbalist. This is because Wintergrasp doesn't have Life Revanants - it only has Life Elementals, and they don't have a 100% drop rate, sadly enough. I'll give you two spots to farm Crystallized Life.

  • Wintergrasp

    Yes, we are in Wintergrasp again. As shown in the map above, you target will be Living Lashers. They have a ~30% drop rate on Crystallized Life, but they're tightly packed, so don't worry.

  • Zul'Drak

    In the map above you will see that your targets are Mossy Rampagers this time. I, personally, don't like this spot. The Rampagers are spread out and they are mixed with other mobs, which slows down your Eternal farming. These also have a ~30% drop rate.

Eternal Water


Crystallized Water is one of the easier Eternals to get your hands on. If your fishing skill is high enough, you can fish them up and Miners can get them from Titanium and Cobalt mining nodes. Below I'll give you 3 spots to farm for Crystallized Water and 2 spots to fish them up.

  • Wintergrasp

    Your targets will be Water Revenants and Glacial Spirits. No further explanation needed. There are much more Glacial Spirits than Water Reverants, though.

  • The Storm Peaks

    Icebound Revenants in The Storm Peaks will be your target as you can see in the map above. They're tightly packed and have a ~25% drop rate.

  • Sholazar Basin

    And we're back in Sholazar Basin again. Your targets will be the Aqueous Spirits wandering around Stormwright's Shelf. As I said before, you can farm Crystallized Air here too.

  • Fishing: Howling Fjord

    There are 2 major spots in Howling Fjord to fish up Crystallized Water, as you can see in the map above.
    Happy fishing!
    Note: Crystallized Water is a random drop while fishing. You will need 385 fishing to cast in Howling Fjord and 450 to prevent fishes/Crystallized Water from getting away.

Eternal Shadow


I'll be giving you 2 spots to farm Crystallized Shadow.

  • Wintergrasp

    If you look at the map above, you will see that your targets are Shadow Revenants and Wandering Shadows. Shadow Revenants have a drop rate of ~140%, so you'll get atleast 1 Crystallized Shadow per kill. Wandering Shadows' drop rate is around 30%.

  • Dragonblight

    Your targets will be Deathbringer Revenants, as shown in the map above. The drop rate is around ~25%, slightly lower than Wandering Shadows.

Eternal Earth


In my point of view, it's a waste of time to farm Crystallized Earth. The Eternals go for 5G median on the Auction House, so it's better to use your time farming the other Eternals. But for those that really want to farm them:

Looks awesome really. A

Looks awesome really.

A nice addition would be a table of contents, so that people can quickly jump to the type of eternal they want to farm.

You should ask Jiyambi how to make one in html, it works even if your input format is bbcode. She knows how to do that Smiling
