Best Heirloom Enchants

With Cataclysm looming ever closer, one good gold making strategy is old world enchants for heirloom gear. I've seen a few of these lists appear, but I thought I'd compile my own list of the best enchants for the BoA gear that are selling well on my server.

Weapon Enchant's:

Enchant Weapon - Crusader (Drops from mobs in plaguelands)
2 Righteous Orbs + 4 Large Brilliant Shards
Crusader is a consistent good seller due to the massive strength proc for lower levels. This is by far the best recipe to make money from on my server.

4 Small Radiant Shards + 1 Essence of Fire
This is the second best seller I have, and the mats are fairly easy and cheap to get.

8 Large Brilliant Shards + 4 Essence of Airs

4 Large Brilliant Shards + 4 Essence of Airs
These were some the latest additions to my enchanting recipes due to the Timbermaw rep grind, but they are selling well.

4 Large Brilliant Shards + 4 Essence of Earths
This is a fairly easy recipe to get and is nice and cheap to produce.

6 Large Brilliant Shards + 4 Greater Eternal Essences + 12 Illusion Dust
This is less popular than some of the others but does sell occasionally for a decent profit.

6 Large Brilliant Shards + 5 Greater Eternal Essences + 20 Illusion Dust
With spellpower going away as a stat on items, this is becoming more popular and already sells for a very high profit margin.

Getting started with writing addons - WoWWiki - Your guide to the World of Warcraft

I have yet again sparked the idea of dabbling with add-on creation. As with other home programming ideas, it is likely not to last, but in the event that it does, I thought I'd link the WoWWiki page that has given me the best starting information after a couple of hours of trawling. I did in the past install and use the Visual Studio editor for WoW, but that now seems to have stopped development and appears to not work with the latest patch (3.3.5).

I find myself wondering if i went a little bit mad yesterday when I spent around 10k gold buying up enough Primordial Saronite to get to the next step of the Shadowmourne quest. All of this for a legendary weapon for offspec.
I mean it's highly unlikely I'll get past the collecting souls stage, but is it worth the gold and the time for the chance at a legendary item? Given our guild only managed about 8 Fragments of Val'anyr over our entire Ulduar raiding time, it's not really likely. (Although that in my opinion was due to never saving the raid and resetting it each week, which meant we hardly ever raided the keepers, never mind beyond).

Guest Post: 32 tricks for Icecrown Citadel

Just wanted to link to this guest article on wow.com. Some very good tips for various stages of ICC.

Friday 6 August 2010


So my thoughts this evening are on goals. In particular what goals I want to complete before the release of Cataclysm.
Here are a few that spring to mind:

  1. Kill LK25/Sindragosa10 - (to complete ICC on at least one raid size. I already have Kingslayer from being invited to a friend's guild's raid which I missed Sindra, and our guild has finally reached LK25.)
  2. Kill Yogg-Saron - (We never finished Ulduar on either 10/25man, only having a few tries on Yogg.)
  3. Obtain the 7 remaining JC recipes I am missing on Palkei. (6 from Sunwell trash drops, 1 from BC dungeon drop)
  4. Break 100k gold barrier. (Not sure I've got time to get gold-capped, although that's a stretch goal.)
  5. Get my lvl 78 priest alt to 80.
  6. Get Chopper and Tundra Mammoth

I am planning on posting links to sites I use fairly frequently or have found useful in the past. This site was a great resource for getting my Blacksmithing, Alchemy, Enchanting and Tailoring tradeskills levelled to max. I have other alts in progress for other skills, but they are restricted by their levels at the moment until I find time to level the chars themselves.

First Post

Hi everyone. Not sure whether I'll manage to keep this going, but it's a new start blogging about something I spend a fair amount of time on.
I am planning to cover various topics on this blog, including my experiences with my main Holy Paladin (Palkei),  levelling alts (before and during Cataclysm) and making gold in WoW.
