There are several types of Water Elementals in this zone, and there are two major locations for Essence of Water. Also, the zone is great to combine gathering professions. So you can switch to farming Thorium Herbs for a while if both of the Essence of Water locations are full. Here’s the map:
Winterspring Essence of Water farming
The Watery Invaders in Winterspring are a great option, since the spot has enough elementals for 2 players to be farming there. In addition to this, there are lots of great farming locations for other things near. This way, you can easily switch if there are too many people farming here. For example, farming Felcloth, or Essence of Fire in Felwood for a while, until this location is clear again. Keep in mind that these Invaders are not always there.
Fishing for Essence of Water in Azshara
There is one more, not very well known way to get Essence of Water. In certain locations in Azshara, Essence of Water can be fished up in the Elemental Water Pools. These Pools respawn on a one-hour timer, though more than one pool can be active at a time. So if you go there in the night or early morning, when they had time to respawn, you might be able to get 3-5 Essences of Water very quickly:
