Welcome to today’s guide, where I cover the profitability of the Profession Equipment Shuffle!
We’re now in the third week of Dragonflight, and the commodity market is starting to settle. With players still scampering around trying to level alternative Professions, you’ll notice crafts (especially Profession Equipment) dumped on the Auction House that Enchanters (like me) can find profitable.
I don’t do many Shadowlands professions due to the need to babysit the Auction House. However, this shuffle is excellent for those like myself who don’t have time to babysit the Auction House for canceling and reposting undercut auctions.
The sheer demand for Soul Dust means it will sell.
How It Works:
If you have Enchanting at level 70 or above, you can participate in the Soul Dust shuffle. To take advantage of this shuffle, open your profession: Enchanting, and under the category Shatters, look for Eternal Crystal. To profit from this method, we’ll shatter Eternal Crystal’s into Sacred Shards, then shatter the Sacred Shards into Soul Dust.
Why Is This Shuffle Profitable?
If we invested 36g purchasing an Eternal Crystal, and you shattered it, you will obtain 3 Sacred Shards. The value of these shards would then be 12g each (36g/3=12g). Sadly, these wouldn’t be that profitable on my realm. However, if we were to shatter the 3 Sacred Shards too, we’d collect 9 Soul Dust, which would result in our Soul Dust valuing at 4g each (36g/9=4g).
The Soul Dust on my realm is worth 9g 33s. In the last 30 days, I’ve sold 46,769Soul Dust at 9g 37s for a total of 438k. My original investment of 187k to purchase 5,196Eternal Crystals means I’ve made a profit of approximately 251k.
Before You Get Started
Check The Undermine Journal for Eternal Crystal, Sacred Shard, and Soul Dust prices on your realm. As this is specific to your realm, I’d recommend ignoring median prices.
You can either disenchant items to obtain Eternal Crystals or visit your Auction House and purchase them. If you can sell Soul Dust for 9g each, don’t purchase Eternal Crystals above 54g; otherwise, you’ll start losing gold after the Auction House cut.
Remember, you get 9 Soul Dust per one shattered Eternal Crystal. If you multiply the value of Soul Dust (on your realm) by 9, this is the maximum value of an Eternal Crystal via Soul Dust.
Once you have your Eternal Crystals within your inventory, start shattering them into Sacred Shards. We will obtain 3 Sacred Shards for every Eternal Crystal shattered.
If there’s more value in Soul Dust than Sacred Shards, you will need to shatter the 3 Sacred Shards resulting in 9 Soul Dust.
You can either post the Soul Dust on to the Auction House or, if you want to extend the profit margins further, craft profitable Enchants that rely on Soul Dust. Here’s a selection of Enchants I’ve found profitable.
Currently, with patch 9.1.5 in full swing and many alts playing, it’s never been a better time to get Enchants/Enchanting materials on the Auction House. Players are still raiding, so prioritize your posting for reset days.

Important: Due to changes in Legion (7.3.5) Vision Dust was removed from the game, thus changing the materials gained from this shuffle. Vision Dust has now been depreciated and this guide is no longer beneficial.
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 maximize materials by either disenchanting, prospecting it, or 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.
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.

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.
