Supplying The Raider, Part 3: Enchants

So you picked up your new Sword of Epic Win from Trial of the Champion, and you want to get it up to snuff with the latest beastly enchants. Uggh. All these crystals, dusts, and essences, and on top of that, you have to find an enchanter! But no, you can buy a Scroll of Enchant Weapon - Berserking, right off the Auction House! Wouldn't you do it?
Most WoW players would. The hardcore of the hardcore, those who need all the beastly enchants, are willing to pay a few extra gold to save a bit of time. This provides you with an opportunity: Use your enchanter to either buy mats off the AH or disenchant AH-acquired greens. Turn these into some of the best-selling scrolls, especially best-in-slot ones for the
min-maxers among us. These will need Abyss Crystals, which have dropped sharply with the release of free epics from ToC. Find ones with a good profit margin (Once again, Value - Mats Cost+AH Cut, factoring in time spent) and post 'em during peak hours. Another good time is after raids end, as raiders will be eager to enchant their new phat lewtz. As usual, focus on the 20% of endeavors that make up 80% of your profits, and you can maximize your moneymaking potential.

Get out there and try it.

(Also, apologies for the lack of posts recently, I haven't had a lot of WoW time, and with Brewfest out, the 15 minutes a day I have are spent on my dailies. Gotta get that Beerboy title!)


  1. Liking the blog - espeically this 'mini-series' on supplying raiders, which is a very lucrative business if you know what you are doing.

    It also opens up markets which might not be apparent if you are not a raider yourself.
