Enchanting – Large Brilliant Shards

Large Brilliant ShardGood evening guys, as you’ll be aware by now, Legion is on the horizon and many Enchanters including myself are stocking up our banks full of Enchanting materials ready for the new Tome of Illusions coming in Legion. If you’re near an Auction House, go and check how high the materials have already sky rocketed to! all this is due to the high demand. Most old world Enchanting materials are already at least 100% above normal asking price and that’s all down to people like myself, buying them all up.

If you’re not aware of what Tome of Illusions are, please click here to read my previous post regarding them.

As prices have become so high, I’ve looked back at alternative means to acquire my materials and thankfully, the memory bank kicked in and I remembered a very good way to acquire  Large Brilliant Shard. These shards are needed to craft the  Tome of Illusions: Azeroth .

As I’m Horde, I’ve hearthed to Orgrimmar in search of the Legacy Armor Quartermaster – First Sergeant Hola’mahi, in The Hall of Legends [38.72] She sells the Sergeant’s Cape for 55 Honor points. It’s important, that you purchase the correct cloak. What we do is buy up as many of these cloaks that we can fit into our bags and disenchant them. Each cloak will disenchant into 1x  Large Brilliant Shard.

As the PvP season is coming to an end, what better way to spend those Honor Points, before they get converted to gold. So don’t wait any longer… If you don’t have any intentions of crafting the Tome’s in Legion, but you have Honor Points to spend and a disenchanter, do the method above and simply post the  Large Brilliant Shard on the Auction House and take advantage of  those that will be desperate for them.

This is a very old method and well known among gold goblins, I hope you found this post helpful. As ever, leave any feedback you have, below!

Warlords of Draenor BiS Stage Gear

*** This Guide is now out of date, please do not use this, as the stats for all classes have now been changed in (7.0) Pre-Patch Legion. ***


Good morning guys, as promised in my previous post, here’s my Warlords of Draenor BiS Stage Gear – TSM3 Import Strings for Blacksmithing, Tailoring and Leatherworking. I currently don’t deal in Engineering weapons, Jewelcrafting rings and necklaces and Inscription weapons/trinkets due to them over flooded on my auction house, so these strings haven’t been added/created. However they could be created in the future if enough people want them.

May I first take this opportunity to first credit Sheyrah, to whom posted an incredible amount of information and uploaded the basic list to her pastebin. If it wasn’t for this, this would have taken a lot longer to create and manage. So thank you for sharing Sheyrah. If anyone has any aspirations in becoming a very good gold goblin, please do give Sheyrah and her partner Xionik a follow via their links below and check them out. They’re extremely good at what they do and boast to have earned well over 100 million gold.

To reassure you all on how I managed to make this accurate list, I used a website called Ask Mr. Robot to find out the best in slot (BiS) stats for any given class and spec. Once I had the stats noted down, I then went through Sheyrah’s list and carefully split up the BiS gear from the gear with random stats. Once this was complete, I then split the BiS gear up into their separate Stages from 1-6. Now when I hover over a crafted item, I can see whether or not it is of any value, thanks to my TSM tooltip set up.

Demand is extremely high at the moment, with no new content currently available and people are creating and levelling alts. This means high demand for crafted stage gear as it can be worn from level 90 to 100 and can be upgraded to a maximum Stage 6 – ilvl 705 (Weapon) or 715 (Armour) . I currently only upgrade to stage 4, to limit my expenses and make the most profit. This of course differs from your servers economy and what tactics you’d prefer to take.

Ideally, to make the most profit, it would be best to craft the items yourself, but this is time consuming and depends highly on the materials you have at your disposal. However, don’t be put off from making a decent return and buying the materials straight off the auction house. The tactic I use myself is a bit of both. The only thing I craft is the essences at the armour or weapons can be bought cheap.

Example:

Bought:
1x Supple Vest of the Deft (stage 1) – 1k
3x Burnished Essence – 5k (3k if I craft them myself)

Total – 6k (4k)

Sold:
1x Supple Vest of the Deft (Stage 4)  9-15k

Here’s my TSM Strings by Profession.

Blacksmithing:
BiS Plate Armour
Standard Plate Armour
BiS Weapon and Shields
Standard Weapon and Shields

Leatherworking:
BiS Leather Armour
BiS Mail Armour
Standard Armour

Tailoring:
BiS Cloth Armour
Standard Cloth Armour

Engineering: *Only Guns added*
BiS Guns
Standard Guns

To be added at a later date if there’s enough interest.

Jewelcrafting:
BiS Rings
Standard Rings
BiS Necklaces
Standard Necklaces

Inscription:
BiS Weapons
Standard Weapons
Trinkets

Engineering:
BiS Weapons
Standard Weapons

If you find any issues with this guide or want to add any feedback, please do drop a line below. If i do get enough interest I will invest some time to create those remaining strings. Currently I don’t need them myself, but would be happy to help others if they require them!

Again, please remember to give Sheyrah & Xionik a follow, their details can be found above and I can guarantee you wont regret it!

Thanks for reading guys and hope you found this guide a great help, feel free to post your sales in comment below or on my Social Media platforms!

Tome of Illusions

As we all know by now, we have the Wardrobe system coming to Legion, bringing us the freedom to swap in and out collected armour and weapons alternatively called Transmog which we’ve collected on our travels. A new direction from the developers, is the introduction of the Tome of Illusions, which will work via the wardrobe system too, but will give us the freedom to add an appropriate enchant effect to our weapons and change it when we desire. You’ll know that we already have this opportunity for illusions already, via the Enchanter’s building in our Garrisons in Warlords of Draenor, sadly, these are not permanent, but those in Legion will be!

The Tome of Illusions will be created by Enchanters, using materials from the region that matches the illusion you desire. For instance, if you wanted the Tome of Northrend, you’d need to acquire the materials that would be gathered within Northrend or the Wrath of the Lich king expansion.  I will add below, each Tome and the materials needed to craft each one.

If you want any advice, start buying up these materials from the Auction House NOW! People are clearing out banks, guild banks, ready to start preparing for Legion and that normally involves materials that people find are not wanted anymore. We need to take advantage of these cheap sales and stock these items up so we can get an early push once Legion is released.

I suggest creating a new TSM Profile to limit any chance of ruining any groups you may have created already. If you’re not a TSM3 subscriber, then I also urge you to backup your TSM. This is automatic if you’re a subscriber.

 

Vision Dust Shuffle

In today’s guide, we’re going to be showing you how to Craft a  White Bandit Mask so we can disenchant it for  Vision Dust. This is known as the Vision Dust shuffle. A profession shuffle is crafting an item, to maximise materials from either disenchanting, prospecting it or by selling the craft to a vendor for a profit.

Professions needed: Tailoring (215) and Enchanting (125).

You will need a Tailor with the recipe, Pattern: White bandit Mask. This pattern has a very low drop rate, so you might be better off searching the Auction House for it. If you have time on your hands, and you wish to farm it instead, then feel free to click here to see where it drops.

The materials needed to craft 1x  White Bandit Mask;

1x Bolt of Mageweave (4x  Mageweave Cloth)
1x Bleach
1x Heavy Silken Thread

Once you’re happy with the amount crafted, use your Enchanter to disenchant the masks. Here’s the following materials, you can gain from disenchanting 1x  White Bandit Mask.

2-8x  Vision Dust
1-4x  Lesser Nether Essence
1-2x  Small Radiant Shard

You can either sell the  Vision Dust on the Auction House to make an instant profit, or use it for crafting, which will make a profit in the future.

If you enjoyed this guide and want to venture into other profession shuffle techniques, then head on over to my Alchemy, Jewelcrafting shuffle categories for more guides. As ever, if you have any questions or some feedback, feel free to post below and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Fishing up the Sea Turtle via the Naval Missions

Yes… you read the title of this blog correctly, it’s possible to fish up the Sea Turtle via your Naval Missions. Simply attach a  Tuskarr Fishing Net to your ships and if you’re lucky, you may fish it up without the need to literally fish it up yourself.

sea turtle via naval missions

I’d suggest placing the Tuskarr Fishing Net on your Transport Ship, one that you’d send out on Oil Missions. You can purchase the nets for 500 Garrison Resources and they’re available from Kronk Rustspark, Frostfire Ridge or Salty Jorren, Shadowmoon Valley.

If you dont have the Tuskarr fishing net unlocked yet, then you must complete the reputation requirement, to buy this recipe from the vendor. If you’re Alliance, you must earn Honored reputation with the Hand of the Prophet. For Horde players, you must earn Honored reputation with the Vol’jin’s Headhunters. The recipe will cost you 500g.

Let me know if you’ve been successful to fish this up via the above method.

Easy Gold with Feast of Winter Veil (6.2.3)

Disclaimer: I do not take any credit for this guide, this is the work of UmrenTV which I was fortunate enough to come across via YouTube. I’m just sharing what seems to be an extremely good guide.

 Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater shuffle. A profession shuffle is crafting an item, to maximise materials from either disenchanting, prospecting or by selling the craft to a vendor for a profit.

This is only available during Feast of Winter Veil.

If you have level 1 Enchanting and some starting gold, it appears you can make a lot of gold purchasing  Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater which disenchants into either 1  Strange Dust or 1  Lesser Magic Essence. Just fill your bags with the sweaters and disenchant them and depending on your realms Auction House, you can make a lot of easy gold.

The sweater costs 22 copper and on average, 1   Strange Dust on my realm goes for 42 silver. So massive profits to be made.

Here’s a macro, kindly added by UmrenTV;

Draenic Philosopher’s Stone Shuffle

Welcome to my Draenic Philosopher’s Stone shuffle guide. Here I will try and advise you on how to make some guarenteed profit by following this easy step by step guide. A profession shuffle is crafting an item, to maximise materials from either disenchanting, prospecting it or by selling the craft to a vendor for a profit.

Let’s get started!

Item: Draenic Philosopher’s Stone

First off, make sure you have the ability to craft this item. If not, you can simply purchase the recipe from Albert de Hyde or Joshua Alvarez (Horde) or Katherine Joplin or Mary Kearie (Alliance) for one  Secrets of Draenor Alchemy. You can craft one of these once per day, via your profession.

Mats:
 Alchemical Catalyst x5
 True Iron Ore x1

You can either craft these items yourself, or simply purchase them from the Auction House. Remember, when purchasing materials from the Auction House, the price you pay for each item, will reflect on your prfoit at the end of the shuffle, so always bear that in mind.

The  Draenic Philosopher’s Stone sells for 25g 31s 47c each and there’s no crafting limit. As long as the mats cost for example 20g in total, we set to make just over 5g in profit. So you’re probably thinking, is that it, 5g! Well… imagine buying enough mats to craft 1000x Draenic Philosopher’s Stone, like I currently have in my inventory. Now that 5g doesn’t look too bad now, does it? as this would total 5.000g once crafted and sold to a vendor.

There are many other profession shuffles in Jewelcrafting, Enchanting and Tailoring, simply find the one that makes the most profit for you. Check out my future guides for tips and tricks.
