Primal Earth is primarily made by converting 10 Motes of Earth to one Primal Earth. Motes of Earth can typically be found by Miners, from Fel Iron, Adamantite, and Khorium veins. They can also be recovered from various Earth elementals in Outland (Enraged Crushers in Nagrand, Enraged Earth Spirits in Shadowmoon Valley, etc.).

Primal Earth can be created through Alchemy with the Transmute: Primal Fire to Earth and Transmute: Primal Life to Earth recipes.

Primal Earth is one of the cheapest primals due to its relative abundance and the fact that (unlike Shadow, Mana, Fire, Life, and Water) it is not used in any of the Tailoring cloths.
