Mists of Pandaria is almost upon us. Perhaps you’ve already noticed more names reappearing in your friends list? Or smiled at masses gathered around the training dummies in the capital cities. It’s that wonderful time, right before an expansion. Guilds are once again recruiting and everyone is reading up on the coming expansion. When the gates to Pandaria open on the 25th, we’ll be leveling up with guild mates, looking to get new loot and ultimately get ready for a new tier of raiding. Our guild crafters have the additional responsibility to level their crafting professions and get crafting new enchants, glyphs, feasts and flasks for upcoming raids.
This expansion, non-crafters finally have an easy way to help contribute to guild supplies, in a time when materials will be scarce and expensive on the auction house. Spirit of Harmony tokens, are gained from combining 10 Motes of Harmony, which are in turn gained from killing any mob in Pandaria. You average 1 mote every 10 mobs and so 1 Spirit of Harmony from 100 mobs. Spirit of Harmony tokens can be exchanged for trade goods likes Golden Lotuses (used for flasks), Ironpaw tokens (used in exchange for vendor only materials for feasts) and many other items. By the time you have hit 90 and have access to the vendor in the Shrines in Vale of Eternal Blossoms, you will have a least 8 – 12 tokens. Using these could help your guild get the materials needed to maximize stats for raiding, leading to quicker progression.
