This item is used to extract motes from various clouds, gases, mists and vortices in [[Outland]] and [[Nagrand]]. It can be put to use on the fairly distinctive, wandering clouds as long as your character is in close proximity to them. Simply activate the device when you are near a cloud.

Notes

This item is used to extract motes from various clouds, gases, mists and vortices in Outland and Northrend. It can be put to use on the fairly distinctive, wandering clouds as long as your character is in close proximity to them. Simply activate the device when you are near a cloud and it will channel the motes into a spare inventory slot, should you have one.

Note that Arcane Vortices are normally invisible, so if your minimap tracker is not enough to go on you will need the ability to Detect Invisibility.

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.

Note that Windy Clouds will very frequently spawn on top of the floating islands that are dotted about the Nagrand region, requiring a minimum of Expert Riding to reach them.

Also note that other methods exist for acquiring Motes, such as by tapping veins or looting from elemental creatures.

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 Crystallized ingredients. The main difference is that more than one kind of element can be extracted, unlike the ones in Outland.[1]
