I only sell enchant scrolls right now, but I have a lot of mats in the bank and there are a lot of enchants that aren't worth crafting because they sell below material cost. Is there a way to set it up to sell mats, but only if there aren't any crafts set up that have higher profit?


Enchants swing too much day to day to rely on TSM to pick that up, and you can also fall prey to resets. Better to just create a craft list manually for the ones you know are consistently profitable.

enchants just for the visual effect that go on top of whatever else you have.

If you're looking to make a pile before Legion, I would very much suggest stocking up on older materials for the launch of the wardrobe. Materials for things like the Felsteel Longblade can be quite hard to come by these days, and I'm quite confident you'll be able to scalp people for massive amounts while they're still floating on the piles of gold WoD barfed out everywhere. Everyone will be much more aware of unusual models once they can see them ingame without addons like Mogit, and if there's one thing people love to do online, it's spend ludicrous amounts on pretty pixels.

I, for one, plan to be on the supply rather than demand side of that gold wave :o

Broke 6M yesterday... I'd be all over the old mats for crafts and enchants, but not sure I really need much more, and I'm too busy in EVE right now.. :lol:

So, over 7M now..

but looking at Legion, man, it's gonna be a grind, and a lot of dice rolling. With all the levels of each pattern/skill that need to be ground out, you are investing a lot of time into something that may or may not be viable on your server.

the lack of crafting alts for most sane folk is going to be a thing as well. Not many are going to have the time to level a lot, especially early on.

I agree Legion's going to be a lot less alt-friendly than anything before, but that might be exactly what makes it profitable. The average WoW player isn't going to put much effort into chasing profession stuff, which means there'll be much more scope for the people who do.

That said, even I'm probably not going to be doing much with my alt army at least for the first bit of Legion when it's all nice and fresh. Transmute masters for the win!

For those of us that raid, maxxing the artifact is going to take precedence over gold anyway.

But my play is going to be on Obliterum anyway, which really doesn't need alts (or professions for that matter).

So, how are things going for folks in Legion?

After a slow start (TradeSkillMaster being buggy with new items for a few weeks didn't help) I've got my enchanting going again, though I don't have the funds to go all in on new materials stuff. The classics are still selling, though (mostly weapon enchants like Mongoose, Agility, Crusader. I did sell one scroll of Blood Draining for 14,000g, and I have no idea why that happened), and I'm making enough money to keep my account going. The Legion Mining/Herbalism/Surveying enchants seem like good regular sellers.

The top level Legion enchants don't seem to be selling much yet, I expect a combination of the high prices and lack of high-end gear worth using them on. I've not been crafting a lot of those, though, because 15 x 1000g to make one enchant isn't quite manageable for me (I hit 80k gold this month before buying my 70k Token, so I'm heading slowly upward from a low start). Once raids are out we'll have more Chaos Crystals, more people needing enchants, and higher-rank recipes that take less mats, so the turnover will rise and it'll get more reliable.


What kind of state is Inscription in now? I used to make most of my gold from glyphs, back in Cataclysm/MoP.

Also, is the Obliterum market worth it? I've not had any reason to get crafted gear on my main so far, so I'm not sure how much demand there is for Obliterum. Haven't even unlocked the forge yet myself, since the prices on the 4 bracers are still ridiculous.

Herbs is where it's at. You DID level an herbalist, didn't you? (No, me neither...)

Oblit is good, but not great, everyone figured it out pretty fast.

Herbs are stupid money at the moment. I'm waiting for the bubble to burst, but at the moment I am making very good money just by selling what I gather whilst doing WQs. I've not even thought of farming.

Any particularly good spots to farm? I'm starting to work on my DK and DH that I've given dual gathering.

Just grab a sky golem and run around suramar (outside the city)

The herb is spread quite evenly on the zone,so finding a good path to follow depends more on how many people are already farming and where they are doing it
The worst thing that can happen is ending with someone following your same pattern but in reverse,under the new herb despawn system that cuts the number of nodes by a lot

Oh,forgot about it...

While the corrupted ashbringer is still new,farming Alterac valley and Dire Maul for the halves of the quest book is a viable source of lots of money

Jusrt sold my second copy of AV guide to angling for 50k.God bless lazy rets :lol:

Epics do not always DE to chaos crystals now so those are going to get very expensive before long. Might have missed the boat on stocking up on them though as the price has risen quickly on most servers. Arkhana and Leylight market prices will drop now though.

Enchants have been selling like crazy the last few weeks. Guess we hit the tipping point between price of enchants and availability of gear worth enchanting.
