How to get Soul Motes in New World

Follow this guide to track down all the Soul Motes you'll ever need.

Soul Motes can be harvested from Soulsprouts and Soulwyrms and mined from Soulspires. You need harvesting levels of 0 and 30 to harvest Soulwyrms and Soulsprouts, respectively. For Soulspires, you need a mining level of 50.

Soulsprouts can be found in large numbers throughout the low-level areas of First Light, Everfall, Monarch's Bluff, and Windward, but there are a couple of spots that reliably have large numbers. The first is the area around the Shattered Obelisk in Everfall
