Uncanny Gear (Tailoring)

With a couple of weeks until the release of Shadowlands Pre-patch, I thought it would be a great time to quickly jump back on the crafting bandwagon and give you some tips for crafting Uncanny gear via the profession: Tailoring.

With the expansion almost at an end, don’t be put off thinking the Uncanny gear isn’t worthwhile anymore, as you’d be wrong! It’s still selling extremely well, and with a couple of things to consider (outlined below), we can profit from players quickly levelling alts ready for the pre-patch.

Important: Make sure you have rank 3 recipes learned.

It’s imperative that you have rank 3 on all the Uncanny recipes it prevents us from losing gold in the long run. It will also reduce the amount of Expulsom required to craft an item. Expulsom is a problematic material to acquire and is necessary for every Uncanny craft and the best way to gather this is following Samadan’s bracer shuffle method. Please follow his directions precisely. Once we’ve collected all our Expulsom from scrapping the bracers, we can start to craft our Uncanny items.

It’s best to craft every item, so be sure to craft as many of each as you can. I have a minimum of 10 of each item posted on the Auction House. The reason being is my TSM has Ignore Variation unticked. The benefit to this is that we make sure we get the best value for the items with the best stats. If we have Ignore Variation ticked TSM will post all of our gear on the Auction House below the cheapest item, regardless of its stats, and we stand to lose gold on our best items. So be sure to untick Ignore Variation for the best results!

It’s worth bearing in mind, that once Shadowlands has released and dependant on scaling (due to level squish), Uncanny Gear shouldn’t be important, other than for the benefit of Transmog and only then, would I consider ticking the Ignore Variation. Stats won’t matter if someone is purchasing your gear purely for Transmog purposes. Remember to adapt as the game transitions to stay one step ahead of your competition.

With the Auction House throttle activated when you cancel auctions to repost, I’d recommend posting your Uncanny Gear at 12-hour or 24-hour intervals. This gives you the freedom to post more often without getting throttled. Many of my competitors post at 48-hours, so as long as I log in when my items expire, I can repost successfully, keeping my auctions at the cheapest.

Vision Dust Shuffle

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 maximise materials from either disenchanting, prospecting it or by 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.

The materials needed to craft 1x  White Bandit Mask;

1x Bolt of Mageweave (4x  Mageweave Cloth)
1x Bleach
1x Heavy Silken Thread

Once you’re happy with the amount crafted, use your Enchanter to disenchant the masks. Here’s the following materials, you can gain from disenchanting 1x  White Bandit Mask.

2-8x  Vision Dust
1-4x  Lesser Nether Essence
1-2x  Small Radiant Shard

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.
