    Profitable Enchanting Scrolls Redux

    Enchanting has been surprisingly profitable in Cataclysm. In recent weeks, scrolls sales have held between 2-5k per day, to the tune of 40-500% profit margins. A great portion of these sales come from pre-Cataclysm scrolls, notably BoA enchants. I hear the question "what enchanting scrolls should I sell?" far too often.

    Once again folk in the forum come to the rescue and throw together an awesome thread detailing profitable enchanting scrolls. These lists are quite thorough so don't expect immediate sales on all scrolls listed.

    Nonetheless, if you're looking to turn a quick profit and near-guaranteed sales, look into the following scroll markets:

    [enchant]enchant weapon - mongoose[/enchant]
    [enchant]enchant weapon - spellpower[/enchant]
    [enchant]enchant weapon - crusader[/enchant]
    [enchant]enchant weapon - strength[/enchant]
    [enchant]enchant weapon - agility[/enchant]
    [enchant]enchant 2h weapon - agility[/enchant]
    [enchant]enchant weapon - mighty intellect[/enchant]
    [enchant]enchant weapon - hurricane[/enchant]
    [enchant]enchant weapon - heartsong[/enchant]
    [enchant]enchant weapon - avalanche[/enchant]
    [enchant]enchant chest - major health[/enchant]
    [enchant]enchant chest - greater stats[/enchant]
    [enchant]enchant cloak - stealth[/enchant]
    [enchant]enchant boots - haste[/enchant]

    These scrolls have yielded consistent sales and steadily high margins, in fact I regularly gouge on most of these scrolls where competition is weak. I'm a sucker for GPH and efficiency, and these scrolls certainly deliver. Source your materials using the Obsidium Shuffle or even the Enchanted Thorium Blades trick for even higher profit margins!

    Check out Thomus' guide if you're looking to obtain the Vanilla agility formulas from Timbermaw Hold and Mighty Intellect from the Thorium Brotherhood.

    I've dabbled in the Maelstrom Crystal scroll market but found it to be slow as molasses. Hopefully this market opens up once Zul'Aman and Zul'Gurrub are launched in 4.1. In case you haven't noticed, epics from both instances are currently labeled "un-disenchantable". Regardless, I think the future of enchanting is a bright one, BoAs aren't going anywhere and as players get bored with end-game content, expect sales to soar even further!

    Have your enchanting endeavors yielded similar profits?

    Good list! I want to add two more Cataclysm scrolls which I can't keep in stock and usually have decent profit margins on my server:

    Edit: In my best XT voice: "I think I broke it"

    I can't get the wowhead inserts to work right now and it seems to be breaking the forums when I try to fix it, so I'll just say

    Enchant Gloves - Haste
    Enchant Gloves - Mastery

    The old favourite of [enchant]Enchant Weapon - Fiery Weapon[/enchant] is still a regular seller (several per day), not so much on the BoA weapons but just as a throw away enchant for levellers looking for that extra bit of bite. [enchant]Enchant Weapon - Lifestealing[/enchant] is also sometimes a cheap alternative for a levelling or BoA weapon, not optimal, but certainly used, my sales tell me so.

    I have been making most of those scrolls and selling pretty consistently as well, for some hefty profits. Definitely add this enchant to your list as well:

    [spell]Enchant Cloak - Major Agility[/spell]

    I sell quite a few of these. And to get the mats even cheaper, use the shattering method... lots of and from that.

    Also as usiris mentioned, [spell]Enchant Chest - Mighty Stats[/spell] is a good one to sell as well. Annoyingly though, there is one particular person, sometimes two, that will list a large amount of these scrolls on the AH at once, for nearly half of current selling price. I know it's just a tactic to sell large volumes quickly and a try at pushing out competition, but I just want to ring their neck sometimes at their stupid tactic. They could easily list for more and still sell a ton. But I guess if they want to dilute their profits so much and be dumb about it, that's their choice. I just wait till they sell out and I list mine for more and sell out as well.

    That's why the enchanting portion of my routine is taking so long - it is literally stealing my life away from me. (That was an awful joke, I apologize)

    In all seriousness, I can attest to the appeal of the Lifestealing enchant. With my very first twink attempt - a 19 Rogue, before I had any idea of what I was doing, that enchant's tooltip seemed sweet. So I made 2 - and felt like a god... then I think I got ganked by a hunter.
