    Carnelian Spikes

    I ran into this somewhat by accident, wanting to level an alt's JC enough to be able to prospect Elementium. As you know, is an easy way to level Jewelcrafting from 460 to about 480. What I found when leveling to 475 on my Jewelcrafter was that on my realm, can be gotten for less than 20g easily. The average price of my purchases was 16g per which means that can be made at a cost of 51.825g (my JC is only revered with Orgrimmar).

    From disenchanting 39, my results have been:
    35x
    68x

    This comes out to ~1.74 and .897 per .

    On my server, is going for around 75g right now, with a lower bound of around 60. is only around 25g, or 20g minimum, but you don't get too many of these anyways.

    Profit for me has been around 101.1g per which sounds pretty good to me.

    Obviously your experience may differ based on both enchanting material and gem prices, but its worth checking out if you haven't already.

    just zapped 26 of these.

    I got 28x
    and 35 x

    adding both results together (65 trials)

    63 dust - 1.03 per
    103 dust - 1.58 per

    While the expansion is still new there's probably more gold in selling higher end enchants as the raid content starts to get run than there is in selling raw enchanting mats, at least there is on my server, tho there is still a nice profit here from .

    Does anyone know offhand what enchanting skill is required to DE these? My 450 enchanter can't do it.

    According to wowhead, 475 enchanting skill required to DE them. You should be able to PL ot 475 almost only on WotLK mats, so it shouldn't cost you too much

    From 450 to about 470 you should be able to PL using the +40 Stam wrist enchant. It's only 1 Abyss Crystal and like 4 Gr Cosmics. Now on my server the prices of these are both in the toilet, with Abyss Crystals going for about 4-5g per. Bust those up for Cosmics and Dusts. The final product is not too much in demand, but I've sold several. Just remember that some people like to twink their gear a little while leveling, so you could reasonably sell various enchants with the leftover Infinite Dusts. You can't apply new enchants until the gear is over ilvl 300 so Infinite Dust still has use.

    Enchanting beyond 490 however has proven to be a giant PITA.

    Protip: if Abyss Crystals are that cheap, don't bother buying greater cosmics. A single shatter will provide with either 8-19 dusts or 2-6 cosmics, so if abyss crystals are at 5g and essences at 10, just buy a couple extra abyss crystals

    Yep, I had about 60 abyss crystals in my bank already, so I shattered my way to 475 last night and started the spike DEing gravy train. I DE'd 30 of them and got 49 essences and 36 dusts.

    I checked the price of dusts and essences on my server, and subtracting the cost of the settings, it's working out to an average of about 41-42g per carnelian. The highest priced carnelian in the AH was 34g, so I bought every last one. I listed a few myself at 40g, and this morning the AH is once again full of them at 22g.

    Even better than that, Obsidium Ore is currently 92g/stack, and if you prospect 1 of each uncommon per stack of ore on average, then that would put the price of a prosected carnelian at about 15g.

    Thank you for pointing this out to the forum, this currently is a major cash-cow, even with mass competition.
