  • Snatch List Items: 17 Recipes That Got Cataclysm'd!

    Seems like it was just yesterday I was flying around on the Cataclysm beta, searching for vendors and identifying recipes that would no longer be obtainable in Cataclysm. In this post I described Schematic: Deepdive Helmet and Pattern: Blue Dragonscale Breastplate as MIA, and sure enough neither survived Cataclysm. Both recipes are now unobtainable and will be sought after by collectors eventually. I was wrong about , but I'm not too worried about that 4g investment going south.

    Turns out several more recipes are now completely unobtainable, either from a a vendor, mob or quest being removed;

    (QUEST, HORDE)




    (ALLIANCE)
    (ALLIANCE)













    (QUEST, ALLIANCE)

    Now, I'm ecstatic about Deepdive Helmet being removed. It's the only item on the list that has some aesthetic and (somewhat) practical value. Eventually, it will be a very hot item and collectors might even server transfer for it.

    Second, a few of these recipes were previously cross-faction candidates, and should fetch even more coin. I had stockpiled a bunch of Deviate Scale Belt and Discolored Healing Potion recipes for cross-faction purposes. As luck would have it, I'm now sitting on a gold mine, hurray!

    So be sure to add these to your snatch list. I'm sure copies of every recipe are still floating around, but it's just a matter of time before they become nearly extinct. Do you happen to have any sitting around?

    Sterling beaming out!

      I believe from an Alliance only vendor is also no longer available (the vendor is dead).

      Freeing knot in dm north is still ingame, so I would assume the pattern is as well.

      Edit: the dig rat stew recipe is a Horde quest, not an alliance.

      While I was leveling JC on Horde side I came across http://www.wowhead.com/item=20970 . It seems, that since Cata release it's just available from vendor for Alliance players. Though it can be transferred via neutral ah. Big plus to it is, that it's a very cheap recipe to get some skill points for JC.

      I also noticed that seems to be horde only. The alliance vendor (Micha Yance) used to be in Southshore which is in ruins now.

      edit: Micha Yance also used to sell and . No other alliance vendors listed on wowhead.

      /sigh my bad. Freeing knot is removed. I saw him last time I was in there and must have assumed he still had a chance at being free.

      It's funny that you mentioned I farmed the vendor for that item for a good 10 hours one day. I didn't know if they'd actually go extinct but it was a hunch they would. Going to hold on to them for two or three more months and slowly get rid of them.

      I also sold a a few weeks back for 550 gold. Didn't realize that it wasn't in game any longer. =/ Was one of those items that I just posted higher then I thought it would sell for and someone bit.

      A few of the items on your list I've been snatching at pretty low prices and reselling for fair profit over the past few weeks.

      Wait! No more Free Knot nor the rewards? Crap... just snatched all three of them at steal prices and put them up below 300g price range. ARGH!! Just for this once I hope they do not get sold!!!

      It seems like may not be attainable either. The comments under wowhead are a bit scattered, some claim they've talked to GM's about this, and that it is gone, but may eventually work its way back into the game. It's not exactly clear what's going on, but I have 8 of these in my bank, and I'm probably gonna hold out to see what happens.

      Also.. I've already sold a for 750 gold. I know it's a pretty cheap price and early to be selling them, but I have 17 of them, and wanted to test the waters a little. There are two or three others on my server that apparently have these as well, and lately they're being posted as high as 4k gold. I'm definitely going into wait mode on these.

      Bumping this thread since my question is related to items removed from the game .

      I just snatched two . According to comments in wowhead, this was removed from the game. Do any of you know if it was really removed ?

      Kaldorei Spider Kabob - Item - World of Warcraft and Recipe: Soothing Turtle Bisque - Item - World of Warcraft can be learned from the cooking trainer. I wonder, but is there a reason someone would pay (more) for the recipes at all?

      Confirmed, at least given the comments to it on buffed.de (a rather reliable source) are correct.

      is back in the game, I got a few while waiting in the LFD queue. Not sure it's a reliable source of income though, since the drop rate is really low, and it's not selling fast.

      Had a look at the drop rate, it's about 0.2% of specific mobs in Tyr's Hand, I've got scrolls selling 350g-450g and the recipe selling at 2000g+ on my server. Can shift around 15 scrolls a week, and recipe a week (If I've got one).

      Went over the listed recipes and the following are (back) in the game:

      fire protection potion (sold - horde only)
      kaldorei spider kabob (trainer)
      dig rat stew (phased drop)
      soothing turtle bisque (trainer)
      deepdive helmet (trainer)

      The rest, however, is on vacation in the twisting nether. :\
