Enchanting Your Way To Profit

   Today we'll take a bit of time to cover the enchanting aspect of the game and what it does and how to get the profits from doing all that enchanting so lets begin.

   Before i start going in details i would like to point out that there are many, and i do mean MANY people out there that have claimed that they can't level up their enchanting due to the fact that it's too expensive and they can't afford it, well if you are one of those people you are DEAD WRONG. Enchanting just happens to be one of the only professions that happens to be able to get profit from anything you enchant with a bit of a patience. ( Before i continue going on about what to do here is what NOT to do, DON'T enchant a single enchant on your own item over and over overwriting the previous enchant just so you can level, but instead put the enchants on a enchanting vellum usually found from the inscription supplier).

   So there you are leveling enchanting and in the process of it's leveling you are putting all your enchanting runs in a vellum and now instead of a wasted enchant on a useless piece of gear that you will never use you have a bag full of enchanting vellums that you can sell to the AH to make profit. I will not go about telling you which ones to choose to level it up faster or to make profit because that is always in a state of a flux which means you will have to check the prices of the enchants on the AH and see which ones are worth making so you can turn a profit on them.  (FOR A GUIDE ON POWERLEVELING ENCHANTING)

   Ok so you've followed the guide there and now you've gotten to the point where you can't level any more seeing as how you are 525 and maxed out so what now, well it's simple PROFIT TIME!

   One of the first things you want to do is go to your trainer and next to him you'll find a guy selling patterns for you to learn new 525 enchants ( It used to be that the only place you could get those enchants was from the vendor in Twilight Highlands but they changed it so now everyone can get it ). After you've learned those enchants which you can buy for enchanting materials as currency you should be prepared to shell out some gold and purchase the enchanting formulas which are the four main enchants for bracers ( Agility, Strength, Intellect and Stamina) as these are gonna be a major seller and a good boost to your own version of the Piles'O Gold image above.

   So now you've leveled up to 525 you've bought the Formulas from the vendor and you've acquired the ones from the AH (they are world BoE so if you were lucky enough to get em that way good for you) so what's the next step ?  Well the next step is the minimum effort maximum profit time. You need to open up TSM and in there make a section where you will input every single scroll you can make and value it up according to how much the worth is on the materials that are needed for that particular item and then set your upper threshold to be something like x8 of the base cost of the materials while the lowest point would be something like 150% of the worth of the materials. So for an example if you are selling a X enchant that requires Y,Z to make and the cost of Y,Z is 100g then you post the upper price as 800g and the lowest price at 150g that way no matter what you will be making profit seeing as how the posting fee for the scrolls is close to nothing. ( In case you don't know how to tweak out TSM check out the previous post covering that issue)

   Normally now that you are 85 and maxed out you will want to be able to enchant yourself as well as your friends which is just normal and you should expect other people to want the same thing, meaning to get their gear enchanted with the best possible enchant there is and that's the top tier enchanting which is good but don't forget about posting the enchants that twinks will want for their characters as those enchants hold almost as much profit if not more as the top tier enchants. I'll post a few of the enchants on which you should keep your eye out for:

Enchant Chest - Greater Stamina
Enchant Chest - Mighty Resilience
Enchant Chest - Peerless Stats 

   These three should be on your scope because they are one of the fastest moving scrolls due to the high demand for them (the resilience one is dirt cheap so if there aren't any on the AH use this to your advantage and make huge profits)

Enchant Weapon - Hurricane
Enchant Weapon - Landslide
Enchant Weapon - Windwalk 

   These three are the top sellers for the weapons division and 99% of the players out there depending on their spec and class will want one of these bad boys slapped on their weapon.


       But that's not all like i said previously you need to be selling all the enchants not only the top tier ones because people that are leveling alts or have chosen to take up playing a twink at a lower level bracket will not be able to use those enchants due to their item level requirement, so that's the market that you will be selling the enchants to. So like i said don't forget about those and respect the old school because it will bring you in some SERIOUS profits, and just for a clarification i will even put down a few enchants that have sold well for me in the past and have made a killer profit.

Enchant Weapon - Crusader  (if you don't have the enchant check out the post about acquiring it)
Enchant Weapon - Fiery Weapon
Enchant Weapon - Spellpower
Enchant Weapon - Mighty Intellect
Enchant Weapon - Mighty Spirit
Enchant Weapon - Strength      

   And all of these enchants are the enchants that all the twinks will want for their weapons so keep an eye out for their materials as this market is very unpredictable as for materials costs where on some days you'll be able to pick up the materials for 1g while the next day will spike to 100g so keep an eye out for those prices and if no one is selling those on the AH then you can make a killing on selling those.

   Well that's about it for starting out in making gold with Enchanting and like always keep your eyes peeled for good opportunities out there.


  1. Another good post, very instructive.

    A few more that you may want to add like +15 Agil on wep from Timbermaw Rep, im currently selling on my server for 250g profit each one i sell, and people normally buy 2 at a time.

    And also you can buy 100 hp on chest from a vendor in winter spring. (Better than the 75hp on chest that you linked, but i guess this was a mistake)

    Made 800g profit on this alone yesterday, the matterial costs are very inexpencive and didnt seem to be much competition.

  2. First time I've been to your blog. I like! I look forward to reading more.

  3. One thing that i value the most is the comments i get from my readers, and if you like what you read i will like to write more of the thing you like :)
