How to Make Gold with Enchanting



Enchanting is one of the (if not THE) most expensive professions to level up. It can however be a good way to make money if you work it the right way. There are a couple basic ways to make gold with Enchanting: selling enchants and selling enchanting supplies.

Disenchanting
The first disenchanting strategy I will discuss involves buying greens and possibly blues if they are cheap enough, disenchanting them, and then selling the enchanting supplies you received. Often times the enchanting supplies you receive sell for more than the item will sell to a vendor or on the Auction House. You can guess by yourself to figure out what pieces of gear you might make gold off of by buying them and disenchanting them or you can use the addon Enchantrix, which will tell you how much an item is worth to you if you disenchant it. I suggest using this addon because it will provide you with a much more accurate number than guessing yourself and it will save you time from researching manually to figure out what items will be worth it to disenchant.

If you choose not to buy items to disenchant then you'll have to simply disenchant all the greens, blues, and purples you loot if you want to sell your Enchanting supplies. If you have a high level character a good way to get gear pieces to disenchant is by doing lower level instances that your character can plow through. If you go to the Instances section of this guide you'll find information regarding some of the best zones to take your character to in order to make gold.

Very basically, and if you are an Enchanter this is no new news, green armor usually disenchants into dust, green weapons usually disenchant into essences, blues usually disenchant into shards,and high level epic gear disenchants into crystals. Also, when you sell Enchanting supplies consider selling them in smaller units for very expensive supplies because for rarer or more expensive supplies players are often just looking to get the mats for one enchant for themselves.

Below is a list of instances and the common types of Enchanting supplies you can get from them. This will help you if you decide you'd like to farm Enchanting supplies.

Selling Enchants
Selling Enchants is a bit more time consuming and complicated than simply disenchanting items and selling the supplies. The classic way for selling enchants is to advertise your Enchanting book in the trade channel and hope that some one will message you with an Enchanting request. The main problem with this approach is that it is time consuming. You can also now sell scrolls of enchants but in order to do this you'll need to purchase Vellum from Inscriptionists to enchant. Selling enchants can make you a lot of gold but the key to doing it is to have good enchants to sell. You will make far more gold in far less time if you simply have good enchants that have a strong demand. Often times it is worth spending the time to spend time farming Enchanting formulas for the large amounts of gold you can make selling the enchants later on. Also, if you have the gold you might want to consider investing in some Enchanting formulas that have a good steady demand. If you choose the right formulas this investment is usually recovered very quickly. This strategy also included buying Enchanting recipes with shards off of the vendor. With Enchanting, the more nonstandard formulas you have, the more gold you can make.

Below you will find some Enchanting recipes that you might want to consider investing in or farming. This list is by no means all inclusive and there are tons of enchants that might be very popular on your server that different from the ones listed below. Your best bet is to analyze your own particular server, watch for enchants that people are requesting, and monitor the prices enchants are selling for on the Auction House.
