I call BS on this.First of all, most of those areas are pretty populated. Its hard to grind for 1 straight hour non stop.Second, farming earth elementals suck. According to my drop rate calculator (mobinfo2) the drop rate for Earths is around 20-30%. The rest are around 50% for the highest level mobs.Third, the math doesnt add up. Take the first example with primal fires: 25g per, .5 motes per mob. To get 1000g in 2 hours you would have to get 40 Primal Fire, which is 800 Fire elementals in 2 hours. Thats 800 Fire elementals in 7200 seconds, or 1 Fire elemental every 9 seconds. These Fire elementals have about 9000 health and have a fire shield. The Air Elementals have a nature shield and chain lightning. Waters are easier, but they have a water bolt and you have to swim through the water / remount to find others. So there is a fair amount of downtime as well.I can get about 6 Primal Airs in an hour, Hunter in all 68+ blues. Thats going balls out and is hardly fun at all. Duoing with a rogue friend, we got 12 Primal Airs in 1.5 hours. However, thats not by yourself.Heres a more accurate description:Farm Primal Airs for 2 hours: get 12 Primal Air, sell to the AH for 240g. Not bad money, but not 1000g.Oh and for your efforts you also get elemental shards and BoE greens. Add 20g.Total: 260g for 2 hours work
