Profitable Profs (Part I) Enchanting

I’ve seen numerous Youtube videos over the past week from respectable GoldMakers regarding professions and how it’s an integral part of working the Auction House. With the extension of the [Winds of Wisdom] Buff for 100% experience, it’s never been a better time to churn out those crafted items for new players. If you’ve followed my blog, you’ll know a lot of my income comes from professions, none more so, than Enchanting. So today, I’ve decided to elaborate further on what I craft and why.

Enchanting

My main has been an Enchanter & Leatherworker since I first started playing the game back in Wrath of the Lich King, at this point I was raiding with a Horde Guild called Influx on Neptulon EU and enchanting was a very lucrative market back then and there were a lot of items you could enchant, unlike today! Thankfully, early reports suggest there will be a lot more items available to enchant upon the release of Shadowlands. Enchanting is an extremely versatile profession, in the case that disenchanting items not needed can net you a decent profit, by merely selling the materials straight on to the Auction House, or alternatively (in my case), craft important Enchants that can have a benefit to players.

Now I hear you ask, what’s the best enchants? Well given the current climate, leveling is a great place to start, so I’ve added a list of enchants below, that I’ve had a lot of success selling. This list will apply to players leveling, so these are great for applying to heirlooms. You’ll notice a lack of Mastery enchants, this is because Mastery doesn’t scale below the level 80.

Each item below is linked to Wowhead so you can check how it scales at a specific level.

Honorable Enchants…

These are Enchants that are used outside of Heirlooms that are worth mentioning. This is purely for players that wish to min/max their character’s stats or gathering ability. The items that these enchant to, will be replaced frequently, so personally, I don’t use these enchants, but others do. I’d suggest making one of each of these enchants and see how this market reacts to your realm.

Conclusion:

So there you have it, a list of Enchants I regularly post/sell on the Auction House aimed at players leveling new characters. If you fancy doing this market too, simply make a small amount, between 1-3 enchants of each enchant, and slowly increase your inventory, the more you sell. This way you don’t overstock and have greater amounts of those you sell often. As with all crafts, some sell quicker than others, some demand a greater price than others, trial and error, and of course patience is key.

Let me know how you get on or get in touch via Facebook or Twitter if you have any questions.

Best of luck…
