With disenchanting In part also covered in this thread at the EJ forums. Firstly, you can obviously farm instances such as BRD for Large Brilliant Shards. These sell for about 6-8g currenly on my server. Check the linked article for more info on that. This post will detail a large part of making money by disenchanting items from crafting. Lets presume you either have a friend who can make and disenchant for you, or you have all the characters and patterns you need to do all this yourself. Note that it "really" helps here if you can do this all by yourself, as you won't have to share your profits. This method involves the combination of trade crafts, and disenchanting the results. We'll aim at the popular high end enchanting materials. Firstly the price list Large prismatic shard, sells for about 30-35g on our AH currently. 3 Small prismatic shards can be converted into 1 Large, thus logically sell for about 1/3 their price. Arcane dust, sells for about 1g - 1g30s at the time of writing this. Greater planar essence, sells for about 8g. 3 Lesser planar essences can be converted into 1 big one, funny enough they sell for about 1g cheaper. Void Crystal about 15g. Before you start, don't try to scrape together cash too much by buying something for 20g, then selling it for 21g. Aside that you'd barely make any profit to begin with, the auction house always takes 5% of your earnings, thus you'd actually make out worse in the end. (Hence i didn't buy out all the lesser planar essences and tried to resell them as large ones) Next, the cost of raw materials Adamantite Powder : Which is a waste product basically. If you're a jewelcrafter you should have loads of these. But if needed can be obtained for about 1g ea on the AH. I recommend talking directly to anyone selling these though as you should be able to make a deal for some cheaper stuff. For the sake of example i'll set it as 25s. Primal Earth : Currently selling for 3g at my auction house. Mercurial Adamantite, sells for 10g on the AH, but can be made for 4-7g if you do it yourself. Eternium bar : Sells for about 1g on our AH Fel iron bar : Sells for about 1g on our AH (Or better, 35-40s per ore) Felsteel bar : About 5g to make (3 fel iron 2 eternium bars) Let's start with Jewelcrafting Braided Eternium Chain and Thick Felsteel Necklace, both have a pretty much guaranteed chance to produce a Large prismatic shard. Henceforth referred to as BEC, and TFN. Cost to craft BEC = 14g 2x Eternium = 2g 3x Mercurial Adamantite = 3*(4 powder + 1 Prinal Earth) = 12g Cost to craft TFN = 20g Same as BEC only requires 6 extra fel iron bars to produce. Disenchanting the BEC / TFN yields you a LPS about 99.5% of the time. Void crystals are only about 15g at the moment. So, even if you get a Void crystal you should still cut about even. If you sell the Large Prismatics at 30g, you'd get between 10-16g profit per item disenchanted. It's a great way to get rid of those useless adamantite powders, or elemental earths. Mind you, if you'd bought the adamantite powder the TFN wouldn't yield you any profits. The BEC would cost you 22g to make vs 30-35g profit however. Brilliant Pearl Band : 4-5g to make 10g return value 8x Jaggal Pearl : 35-50s ea : 3-4g 2x Eternium Bar : 1g ea Green gems Here things get tricky to calculate. Now, if you're an addict prospecter i'm sure you've got a few hundred of each color of green quality gem sitting around in a bank alt somewhere. How would you like to make some easy profit out of them? Sure you could sell them to the vendor for 25s ea, as nobody will buy them off the AH anyway. But there is a better way. Azure Moonstone Ring : Lets say 2g to make. 1x Fel Iron Bar : 1g 2x Azure Moonstone : ~30s*2 1x Deep Peridot : ~30s Disenchanting according to thottbot : Arcane Dust 178.5% : 1.78*1.15 : 2g 04s 7c Lesser Planar Essence 63.5% : 0.635*2.6667 : 1g 69s 33c Small Prismatic Shard 2.0% : 0.02*10 : 20s Total value : 3g 93s 4c Golden Draenite Ring : About 1g 60s to make, expected return value ~3g50s 1x Fel Iron Bar : 1g 2x Golden Draenite : ~30s*2 Fel Iron Blood Ring : About 1g 60s to make, expected return value ~3g50s 1x Fel Iron Bar : 1g 2x Blood Garnet : ~30s*2 Also somewhat interesting, but depends on what you can get for Small Radiant shards on your server. Aquamarine signet : About 2g-4g to make, 6-7g return value. 3xAquamarine : 50s-1g *3 is about 1g50-3g, 2g25 median. 4xFlask of Mojo : 10s-25s, 50s-1g total Tailoring Arcanoweave bracers : 18g 60s to make, 30-35g return 6x Bolt of Netherweave : 5g 60s 12x Arcane Dust : 12g 2x Rune Thread : 1g (Bit less depending on rep) Blacksmithing Not much of interest that i can see at this time. The thread mentioned these 2, but my server's economy doesn't really support it as worthwhile. Perhaps yours is different. Fel Iron Breastplate : 10g to make, about 7g return value, got worth it. Arcane Dust 266.9% : 2.669*1.15 : 3g 6s 93c Greater Planar Essence 33.9% : 2g 71s 2c Large Prismatic Shard 3.7% : 1g 11s Fel iron Chain Coif : 4g to make, about 3g 70s return value, not worth it. Arcane Dust 183.2% : 2.1068 Lesser Planar Essence 63.1% : 1.5775 Small Prismatic Shard 1.5% : 15s Engineering Cogspinner Goggles Cost to make will vary a lot per server and your leather prices. Average cost to make would be about 9g for the dust, 50s for the gems, and anywhere from 4g to 12g for the leather. The item disenchants into a Large Prismatic Shard. Leatherworking Thick Draenic Gloves : about 4g to make, expected return value ~2g so probably not worth it. Not sure on some of the return values yet as thottbot just crashed. Go figure. I'll need to update this article further at a later time. Enjoy the Jewelcrafting part so far.
