, according to its spell,
Trillium nodes can give you either White or Black. They are rare spawns that usually spawn in
node locations. You can determine which ore you are likely to mine by examining the rock underneath the node - black rock means black ore and white rock means white ore.

White trillium ore may be more common to mine than its black counterpart.

Expansion is live, so let's get to double-checking and improving the info. :)
'Cause this is Trillium,
Titanium/Pyrite of MoP.
Trill: An adjective used in hip-hop culture to describe someone who is considered to be well respected, coming from a combination of the words "true" and "real".
May be a reference to Trinium from Stargate:
it can be made by transmuting from alchemy too, and procs if you are transmute mastery.
it is not on the global cooldown
transmute trillium casts: 564
resulting trillium: 636, 112.7659% amount of casts
procs of 2: 76, 13.47% chance from this sample
procs of 3: 1, .1773%
procs of 4: 2, .3546% chance from this sample
procs of 5: 1, .1773%
overall procs: 19, 13.65% chance from this sample
this is just from my first sample, which is not very large. If this gets upvotes ill be updating it at the spell page:
also if you feel like helping me learn more about the proc chances post your findings and ill do my best to integrate them, seeing as i cant find it anywhere else i figured i would help a little.
I'm just realize that Trillium named in tribute to Michael Jackson
This staff taken from his hit songs "Thriller" and "Black Or White" (look at the icon of Trillium Bar)
Also comment of Troubadour was mistakely downrated :)
Oh hey, the bar icon is a Yin-Yang symbol formed from the White Trillium and Black Trillium. Only just noticed that.
The name is possibly taken from
, where Trillium is named as a trade good:
Star Trek possibly took it from its meaning in the 'real world': Trillium is a genus that includes several species of
. The origin of the word comes from the Greek
or the Latin
), so called for its leaves and its flower petals.
One of their species is called White Trillium.
The idea of a material that has a
, which are
, comes clearly from the
concept from classical Chinese philosphy; you can see it exposed in the tooltip icon, and remember that Mists of Pandaria is highly inspired by China (and surroundings).
20 of these will be needed for legendary quest
in 5.2, need to start piling up!
Once you have Revered Rep with the

Ghost Iron Ore
Black Trillium Ore
White Trillium Ore
(yield in varying quantities)
The two ways to get trillium bars are from transmutations or smelting. You can get 1 trillium in exchange for 10 Ghost iron bars or 2 White and 2 Black Trillium Bars. These mats can be bought with spirits of harmony.
1 Trillium = 10 Ghost Iron Bars = 20 Ghost iron ore = 2 Spirits of Harmony
1 Trillium = 2 White Trillium Ore +2 Black Trillium Ore = .8 Spirits of Harmony
Conclusion: to make Trillium Bars, from Spirits of Harmony, buying trillium ore is more efficient
yo keep it trill, god
A little update on buying Trillium Ore verses Ghost Iron Ore. GIO is now sold in a full 20 stack for one Spirit of Harmony. Since one SoH won't buy you enough Trillium Ore to make one bar, we have to expand the math a little.
4 SoH = 10 Black and 10 White Trillium Ore = 5 Trillium Bars
4 SoH = 80 Ghost Iron Ore = 40 Bars = 4 Trillium Bars
Converting that to singe SoH's, we see going the Trillium Ore method means each SoH equals 1.25 bars verses GOI which is only one Trillium Bar.
As far as Transmuting is concerned I've done about 40 tranmutes and the proc rate was far below the 25% you would need to even out the difference between Trillium Ore and GIO.
TLDR Version: It's cheaper to go the Trillium Ore route if you're using Spirits of Harmony.
More data for people who want it:
Last night I worked a steady route in Dread Wastes for three hours (roughly). I ended up with 800 Ghost Iron ore and only enough white/black Trillium to make 16 Trillium bars.
The 800 GI was then turned into 400 bars, which, thanks to a friendly alchemist, netted me another 40 trillium bars (1 trillium bar for every 10 ghost iron bars - there is no longer a cooldown on the transmutation).
By contrast, if one can get one's hand on Spirit of Harmony, one can go to the Spirit of Harmony vendor and purchase 5 each of either white or black Trillium ore for every 1 Spirit of Harmony.
For those who have found a time-friendly place to farm motes of harmony (I have not, sadly), you'll need to farm 20 motes to use the vendor to get enough trillium for 2 bars. (20 motes = 2 Spirit = 5 each of white and black trillium = 2 bars with some trillium left over).
No really good news here. You can burn time or you can burn gold.
Seems to me, based on this, my best approach will always be to mine Ghost Iron - which grows like weeds in Pandaria - and transmute whenever I have a stack.
Hope this helps.
Drastic price surges
For future reference: As I'm writing this we're just over three months into Legion.
As many already new expansions brings price changes to some older trade goods. Generally the goods of the previous expansion. Roughly speaking, either a previous useful trade goods becomes trash or a trade goods highly farmed becomes scarce and gains an increase in value.
The long term effect of inflation also brings price changes to trade goods.
Interestingly enough, as I looked over the prices of a number of useful MoP trade goods (two expansions back). I noticed a drastic surge in price coinciding with the Legion release date (September 1th 2016).
All skyrocketed, prices increasing with numbers around 50-150 % across all servers I viewed.
Similar price increases can be seen on some trade goods from other expansions. Though the pattern isn't as clear.
Three additional notes on the subject:
1. This can in no way be explained by inflation as it has not effected other types of items in any similar way.
2. With the release of Legion, wow saw a surge in returning players.
3. The time between the last patch of WoD (6.2) released 2015-06-23 and the launch of the next expansion Legion released 2016-09-01 was exceptionally long. This even caused some backlash due to players complained on the lack of new content.
My assumption would be that the drastic overnight changes was largely brought on due to the lack of content in WoD forcing people out into the older zones. Creating a strong supply of such materials. Thus keeping prices down for an extended period of time. And with the burst of content brought by Legion people quickly left the old zones causing supply to fall drastically.
Perhaps the large number of returning players and the implementation of the wardrobe function led to an increased demand for such trade gods. Which down the line often is crafted into transmog or mounts.
If this becomes a reoccurring pattern it would be theoretically be possible to double or even triple your gold in just weeks or months by investing in the correct trade goods before the launch of a new expansion.
Me personally haven't seen such a clear pattern between a release date and skyrocketing prices (on items unaffected by the release) before. Have you noticed similar occurrences during previous expansions? What do you think is the probable driving force behind it? Can it be mimicked for your gain during future expansions?
