    Ditch those Molten Core SP weapon enchant formulas now

    There are two formulas from molten core that people have been learning/flipping for a long time: Spellpower (30sp) and healing power (29sp) - if you've got a stock of these, I'd ditch em asap, they are going to go the way of the niche collector market as they are no longer the best BoA enchants for twink heirloom caster weapons (dignified headmaster/staff of jordan). With the cata changes the new king is from thorium brotherhood at revered faction. Mighty intellect is 22 int to weapon and provides more SP plus crit and mana. Im privately moving these scrolls for a small fortune on my server just by stopping twinks I see with the mc enchant on their weapons. I posted my first scroll on the AH, but i'm not sure its known enough to move it at a decent price. The mats to make the scroll are actually pretty steep as you need 20 illusion dust which comes from DEing 56-60 greens -- but only vanilla ones. And since they nerfed scholo and stratholm you need to farm the very end of BRD or UBRS to get these lame greens. Which leads me to the other thought - put low priced illusion dust on your snatch lists, i forsee it becoming quite the commodity.

    One of the best ways to get illusion dust and greater eternal essences is by crafting and disenchanting . I talked about this in my post on the GEE and Illusion Dust shortage.

    I do this whenever I see good bulk rates on Thorium Bars, Rugged Leather, and Enchanted Thorium and you're right, its a good rate of return and should be in the repertoire of any player who has both a blacksmith and an enchanter. Lately on my server I've noticed much more competition selling GEEs and the prices have dropped somewhat to ~35g with lots of competition from a steady 50g with no competition, so I haven't been going out of my way to do this as often, but people should definitely investigate this market on their servers.

    The formulas still hold some value, just for their rarity, but that's about it. You're not going to be able to find people that are wishing to make a market with them.

    That'll teach me to post after no sleep. My original goal of the thread was to inform people about the mighty intellect enchant. People scoff at a 3k quote until they see the mats list and check the AH (on my server Azshara US at least). Then they pay it. The mc ones will hold value to a degree i'm sure, but more and more people are learning it is soloable, and tbh theyre really not that rare. (And its no longer BiS and the one that is can be easily gotten by anyone with about 400g and a direbrew remote)

    So sorry again for yet another skittering subject post. Thanks for the info on GEEs and illusion dust. I had a pretty solid supply but it's waning and I was meaning to research a better method than farming.

    The masses always lag the changes - I have still seen people looking for an enchanter to do the 30 SP enchant. I whispered the person and told them they should get the 22 int one for more mana and crit at the cost of 8 SP. They were unaware that int gave SP, and this was two weeks ago.

    Illusion dust isn't so bad, yields a good ROI but you'll get mostly GEEs, is a great solution as well.

    I sell all three versions, most selling on a daily basis. Oddly enough, the [enchant]Enchant Weapon - Mighty Intellect[/enchant] is usually the cheapest of the 3 on the AH, despite its production cost generally being higher than [enchant]Enchant Weapon - Spellpower[/enchant]. I get better margins however from the [enchant]Enchant Weapon - Healing Power[/enchant] which is loads cheaper to make and sells for almost the same as the +30 version.

    I have been quite pro-active recently in pushing up the price of the +22Int scroll, it is BiS, the dust is getting a pain to collect, and fundamentally the price needs to reflect the efforts.

    People have been following the general theme of the OP though, the MC formula's are both available for around 1k on my server currently.

    Nice post - noone on my realm seems to know this. I haven't find any scrolls on ah.

    Made 1 and put it up, think i'll bark a little later to see people's reactions

    I bought and learned the +30 sp enchant a few weeks ago for 1200g before I was fully aware of the +22 int one, hoping to sell the enchant to twinks and BoA levelers but it has proved totally not worth it for me due to relatively high mat costs, high competition selling scrolls, and low demand for the enchant. I created one scroll with it which took over a week to sell and netted me maybe 100g profit, if even that. I haven't even bothered to create any more +30 sp scrolls since I think it will be more trouble than it is worth to sell. I'll definitely look into the market for the +22 int enchant on my server.
