In World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, making lots of gold with Enchanting remains incredibly lucrative. It’s become a lot simpler to do, and the materials have become more flexible. Using these tips, I currently make several thousand gold per day on a high population server. Your mileage may vary, but all of these techniques can help increase your AH profits from the sale of enchanting scrolls.
Essence of Air is a crafting material used in a few high level vanilla formulas, including heirloom weapon agility enchants. Since they’re rarely obtained while leveling, they’re often in short supply on the auction house. Here are a couple of ways you can obtain Essences of Air to use for crafting or to sell on the AH for lots of gold!
If you’re leveling an alt, heirlooms are definitely the way to go. The added XP bonus and automatic upgrades as you level make heirloom armor and weapons a boon to the alt leveling process. Normally you wouldn’t enchant your gear while leveling since it gets replaced very quickly. With heirlooms, you can enchant your gear and be incredibly powerful even at the low levels, making your leveling process a bit quicker. Here’s a few recommended enchants and item enhancements you can use to boost the power of heirloom weapons, chest pieces, and cloaks while you level up your next alt.
Maelstrom Crystals are a necessary material for many high end enchants in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. With some enchants requiring as many as four or five Maelstrom Crystals, relying on the auction house for individual crystals, or hoping for unwanted dungeon loot to disenchant can be a pain. While you can still obtain Maelstrom crystals from raid bosses, heroic dungeon bosses, and disenchanting your own epics, here are three simple ways you can farm Maelstrom Crystals without breaking the bank too terribly.
Green armor items are everywhere in World of Warcraft. Just from leveling up you’ll probably loot a few hundred of them in the process. Selling them to a vendor is an easy way to get some coin, but if you take the time to disenchant or AH them, you’ll end up with way more gold! Here’s a quick list of which items to keep an eye out for when you’re going through your green items to disenchant.
Every day in the World of Warcraft Dungeon Finder I see hundreds of potential gold disappear in the click of a mouse button. The choice to Greed or Disenchant an item you can’t use is a very valuable decision – and choosing the wrong option could cost you anywhere from 1 gold to 100 gold each time! Read on to find out how to avoid making this costly mistake every time you queue up for a random dungeon in WoW.
Gem sockets, and item enhancements such as enchants, leg armor, spellthread, and shoulder/helm glyphs provide a way to enhance your character without having to upgrade your gear. At the level cap, having your gear fully gemmed and enchanted can provide that last bit of DPS/healing/damage mitigation that you need to complete a heroic dungeon or raid. Once you reach the level cap and start running heroic dungeons, the question is not “should I enchant or gem this item” but “how much should I spend on gems/enchants for this item?”
Yesterday in part one, I outlined the first few steps you’ll need to take to get started crafting enchanting scrolls for a profit in World of Warcraft: Installing auction add-ons, running an AH scan, configuring your add-ons, clearing out your bags, and going shopping for materials. Now the real fun begins! It’s time to start making your scrolls and selling them for big profits on the WoW auction house!
In Making Gold Buying and Selling Enchanting Scrolls I gave a brief overview of some general principles involved in profiting with enchant scrolls on the World of Warcraft auction house. Here is a quick recap:
* Know your materials cost.
* Use add-ons to automate tasks.
* Sell high profit items.
* Buy out competition that’s priced far below crafting cost.
* Find more profitable items to add to your crafting list.
In today’s article I’m going to explain how to put these principles into practice. I’ll be outlining the step-by-step process I use when selling my own enchant scrolls on the Auction House.
As your guild enters into the Firelands raiding tier, you will want the best enchants possible in order for everyone in the raid. Maelstrom crystals are a necessity for many high-level enchanting formulas, and are also used to companion pets with Enchanting! If you’re not keen on spending a lot of gold on the auction house to obtain these maelstrom crystals, here’s a few places you can farm them with time instead of money (assuming you’re an enchanter.)
