    The Crafting DE All-Stars

    During my time researching how to make money with Enchanting whether it be here on the forums, or nose to the grind stone pouring over my profession books, I've found there is a select group of items that can be crafted with professions for the sole purpose of being Disenchanted for profit. These items are the best-of-the-best, can generally be crafted cheaply and can produce easy-to-repeat profits that will put a smile on your face and keep it there.

    Let's call them the:

    DE All-Stars

    Before beginning when deciding what to craft for the purposes of Disenchanting it's very important that you educate yourself on the average yield of the item's DE(check wowhead) and the market value of those items along with the combined cost of the materials required to craft the item. The following recommendations aren't a sure thing as server economies can differ greatly, but I find the following to have the best odds of yielding profit. YMMV. Now, let's break this down by profession:


    JEWELCRAFTING
    :

    *[Vicious Amberjewel Band] - DEs into [Heavenly Shard] and the mats are generally plentiful/cheap on the AH.

    *[Sapphire Pendant of Winter Night] - Even though the craft on this item takes 15 seconds it's probably my favorite JC item to DE. Usually DEs into 1 or 2 [Illusion Dust], but sometimes you'll get 1 or 2 [Greater Eternal Essence] or even a [Large Brilliant Shard]. Just keep an eye on [Essence of Undeath] and [Blue Sapphire] and buy them when they're cheap. I frequently make these for as little as 4-6g investment.

    *[Onslaught Ring], [Glowing Thorium Band], [Emerald Lion Ring] - Same story as the one above, but these tend to be a little more expensive to craft. Still just as amazing when you can get ahold of the materials cheap.

    *[Band of Natural Fire] - This one almost didnt make my list simply because it has been my experience that it's hard to get ahold of bulk [Living Essence] for a decent cost. Regardless this item DEs into [Large Brilliant Shard] which makes it a very valuable craft if you can get ahold of the mats.

    *[Bloodstone Band], [Crystal Chalcedony Amulet], [Crystal Citrine Necklace], [Sun Rock Ring] - Alot of people know about these from doing the Saronite Ore shuffle back in the day and that shuffle is still viable to this day. [Infinite Dust] has and will continue to have a very high demand due to its importance in leveling Enchanting and being able to craft your own source of this Dust is a good thing.

    Honorable Mentions

    *[Nightstone Choker] and [Hessonite Band] - Both of these items when crafted have a higher chance of Disenchanting into [Lesser Celestial Essence] than the ones crafted with Jaspers or Alicites. What also makes crafting them even better is that when you proc a blue craft on these they DE into a full [Heavenly Shard] unlike the items created by Jaspers and Alicites. I only recommend doing these if you are already shuffling ore.

    *[Carnelian Spikes](Idea courtesy of @zenga ) - This one can DE into as many as 3 [Greater Celestial Essence](before Bountiful Bags), but does also sometimes yield Hypnotic Dust. On average you end up getting about 2 GCE per DE so you have to calculate the cost of 3 Carnelian plus 3 settings and decide if this DE is worth it for you.


    BLACKSMITHING:

    *[Stormforged Shoulders] - This item is my main source of [Heavenly Shard] as it is easy to get a hold of the materials in bulk. Your main investment in making these will be time if you Smelt the bars for it yourself(which I definitely recommend). A great way to keep your Enchanting costs low and your Scroll profits high!

    *[Enchanted Thorium Blades] - This is an amazing item to DE. It is how I keep myself well stocked on [Greater Eternal Essence]. This can also DE into [Illusion Dust] or on rare occasions a [Large Brilliant Shard], but 75% of the time you get good ol' GEEs a-plenty. Do this one while you can as Blizzard is removing the ranged/relic slot in MoP and therefore any recipes which create items for that slot go bye-bye too.


    TAILORING:

    *[Wizardweave Turban] - This item is probably my favorite item to disenchant in the game. Out of all the craftable items that DE into [Illusion Dust] and/or [Greater Eternal Essence] this one just gives more of them per DE on average. I've gotten as many as 8 GEE from one DE(granted Bountiful Bags was involved). Mostly these just DE into a ton of Dust but they give Essences pretty frequently as well. Mainly keep an eye out for cheap [Star Ruby] and it shouldn't be hard to find the rest of the materials in bulk cheap.

    *(Idea courtesy of @Finkz ) - This one is not learned by the Tailoring trainer but is rather a rare drop recipe from Vanilla mobs. Really cheap to make for decent returns if done in bulk. Keep an eye out on the AH for the pattern.

    Honorable Mention

    *[Runecloth Headband] - Doesn't require any Dust or Rubies like the Wizardweave Turban so it's a decent fallback item to DE in the Turban's place when you can't get the other mats cheap.


    Those are all my all-stars for now! As you can see I've left out any items created by Alchemy/Leatherworking/Engineering but that certainly doesn't mean there aren't some amazing all-stars in the mix that I simply am not educated on.

    Thank you for reading and let me know what you think or if this has helped you at all! I also ask that if there is an item I did not mention here please respond to the thread and share it with us!

    Good post, but how about the fist weapons from jewelcrafting (made off 3 carnelian) that enchant into 1-3 GCE's?

    Though it yields the same as , I craft to get my Heavenly Shards. Same results, same mats, just another method.

    I completely forgot . Most of the time they aren't financially sound on my server but I think they're worth an honorable mention so I'll add them to the OP. Thanks!

    This is a great thread. This link has disenchanting tables which will tell you exactly what you'll get from disenchanting. BTW, the bountiful bags guild perk increases the amount of goods you get from disenchanting by (1/0.85) which is ~1.17647. Here are some more items that are from crafting/vendor and worth disenchanting:

    Tailoring:
    White Bandit Mask . VERY cheap to make and will DE into lots of vision dust and lesser nether essences. Vision dust doesn't sell for much but a lot is used in leveling enchanting so you can make it up in volume. Also great for making profession leveling kits. Unfortunately, the pattern is a rare drop so keep it on your snatch list.

    Blacksmithing:
    Horned Cobalt Helm. 8 cobalt bars turn into infinite dust and greater cosmic essences.

    Enchanted Thorium blades are being removed in MoP because all throwing weapons are being removed from the game.

    Vendor:
    Furbolg Medicine Totem . Sold by Gorn One Eye in felwood in Timbermaw Hold. Excellent source of lesser eternal essences and dream dust.

    2 items sold by http://www.wowhead.com/npc=21474 (H) or http://www.wowhead.com/npc=21485 (A) in Nagrand when your faction controls Halaa. Limited stock, but you can buy 3 of each at a time. Good source of greater planar essences and arcane dust.

    2 items sold by Bow and Rifle Vendors like http://www.wowhead.com/npc=3322#comments in Org. Limited stock but nice to check everytime you're in the area or repairing. I spend most of my time in the valley of Wisdom so it works great. Massive Longbow DE's well into greater nether essences and Fine Shortbow will give you greater magic essences. Sturdy Recurve isn't worth it IMO.

    I didn't know about the White Bandit Mask. Had to go find the pattern on the AH, managed to get it for 19g. Anyway, thanks for the tip I'll add it to the OP!

    As far as the Horned Cobalt Helm I find that one to be hard to make any money on on my server at least. Most of the time I would break even because Cobalt is generally low supply and medium-ish demand which keeps the prices of both the ore and bars high.

    Another vendor item I discovered from reading an old thread. This post points me to

    http://www.wowhead.com/item=57484#sold-by

    If you're horde, and you do a few quests in stonetallon mountains this item will be sold on a vendor in unlimited quantities for DE into soul dust and greater astral essences.
