    Overlooked PvP Twink enchants

    In doing more research and digging into the Enchanting market (to see what other areas I can cash in on), I "came across" two
    enchants that most often don't get mentioned when it comes to selling enchants for PvP Twink gear.

    [spell]Enchant Gloves - Healing Power[/spell]
    [spell]Enchant Gloves - Superior Agility[/spell]

    The mats aren't cheap, but depending on your server, the scrolls could still be quite profitable. I found that NO ONE was selling the superior agility to glove enchant on my server. So I happily started to fill that void. I've sold 4 so far in a few days, at 299g each. are the costly part of it, but not too bad.

    Only one person is selling the healing power to gloves enchant on my server. Sadly, I need to get that enchant still. I plan to do so shortly, and once I do, I will gladly step in and sell some as well... and maybe push the other person out

    299 seems too cheap to bother with farming primal airs. It must take around 15-20 minutes to farm 2 right? Those buggers spawn slowly and unless you get a mage portal, travel time sucks.

    Try 599. I sell most twink chants for that much when I have zero competition. They sell well.

    If it's 299 I would spend my time farming anything from Cata and make more gph.

    Interesting point, Wanamaker. Is travel time *that bad* anymore? If you're farming Primals, you at least have a 310% mount, which means you take the Dark Portal, point South, then go make a sandwich. Total flight time should be about 3-4 minutes max.

    If you're lucky enough to have the BT neck, it's even faster (or, if you have the guild perk, a willing guildie)

    Why would you bother farming Primal Air? Buy them on the AH. I wouldn't bother farming. The goal of a goblin is to buy all mats and make a profit. Never farm your own... unless you are bored and want to.

    I probably could price the scrolls higher. But being that no one sells them, I have to determine what the best price is for optimal volume. Pricing too high and I'm not going to see many sales. Price lower and get more sales. Higher volume at a lower profit can beat out low volume at a higher profit at times. I don't want to give people a reason to look up the mats and think "Hmm, I could buy the mats for alot less than 599g and just get someone to do the enchant for me". I lose sales that way.

    Or even worse, think "I should get into this market"...

    There is not going to be very many people who can do those two glove enchants as they are both from AQ and only one is available from exalted TBC rep. Regardless of how you price the scroll your market isn't going to be very large by virtue of the fact that it is entirely a twink enchant and one that does not have the lasting value that an enchanted bind on account item would have. I'm selling the superior agility enchant for 700g on the AH with 1-2 sales a week.

    That is a good point Reverb... those two aren't as common for enchanters to have in their arsenal.

    And yea, I realize the market is specific to PvP twinks, but I'm on a high pop server, and we have a large number of twinks. So, while I don't expect to sell 1-2 a day, I'll be happy with 2-4 a week.

    I'll try a little higher price and see how it goes at this point. Will likely hit AQ to get the healing power one as well, and try that too.

    Primal airs are rare on my server. I hate farming stuff but mats like large brilliant shards and essence of air are so expensive on my server, that I have to farm sometimes when I want to sell certain enchants. More often than not I just don't bother with the market. I hate farming anything. That's why Stratholme was so nice, wanted the mount and got "free" mats.

    I'm curious, how much do you pay for your airs?

    A few weeks ago I was seeing sales on between 150g and 250g. Haven't checked on them lately though or tried selling any. I'm more than happy to pay 100g each for as I tried farming them a week ago and was very unhappy with the drop rate I seen. Basically 10 an hour I guessed( spent little time afk over 2 hours ) May have been a little rng but it felt to low to waste time with. With the I always seem to have a large stock from snatching cheap motes.
    Also on the topic of possible twink chants to sell that maybe overlooked or forgotten at times [enchant]Enchant Bracer - Healing Power[/enchant] I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere nor have I tried selling this myself in over 2 years. The Formula is obtained from Argent dawn @ revered.
