Notes

This item is used to extract motes from various clouds, gases, mists and vortexes.

In Burning Crusade ( Bc icon)

Note that Arcane Vortexes are normally invisible, so you will need either the ability to Detect Invisibility or specialized equipment such as the Ultra-Spectropic Detection Goggles or the class-specific engineering goggles.

One common misconception is that this item can also be used to extract Motes of Water from the Pure Water that spawns in fishing spots around Outland, particularly in Nagrand. Pure Water in fact gives up its bounty to players who fish from it, not to mote extractors.

Patch 2.3.0:

Note that Windy Clouds will very frequently spawn on top of the floating islands that are dotted about the Nagrand region. It is very difficult to spot these clouds without the gas cloud tracking ability of the Engineering goggles.

Also note that other methods exist for acquiring Motes.

Be sure you have bag space before you start extraction. The cloud disappears after extraction whether you collected the motes or not.

In Wrath of the Lich King ( Wrath-Logo-Small)

Various clouds and such also exist in Northrend where the Zapthrottle Mote Extractor can be used to extract such things as [Crystallized ...]. The main difference is that more than one kind of element can be extracted, unlike the ones in Outland.[1]

More info to come...

Patch changes

WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 2.4.0 (2008-03-25): The on-use animation has been changed.

Rather than looking like you're a warlock draining the soul of the cloud, it now appears as though you are sucking the cloud through a tube.
