Best Methods to Gather Lesser Moonstone as of 8.0

Lesser Moonstone can be obtained from either prospecting Tin Ore or Iron Ore. Either way, you’ll be competing with obtaining it over multiple other gems as well. Good news is, also either way, you’re still going to net a decent amount of these, given you have a lot of either ore.
