    Best way to get Sha Crystals?

    OK, so if any of you guys are like me and have been doing the Sha Crystal transmute every day but doing very little with them because you weren't being hardcore about hitting revered with the August Celestials or Shado Pan, HOLD THEM, don't sell them. I had a bit over two stacks of Sha from two enchanters making them and when I hit revered with the Shado-Pan a few days ago, I immediately sold all of them via the epic weapon enchants and still had to buy several more stacks of Sha and banked a cool 50K over the course of a few hours. People seem to not be thinking twice about dropping 8K to 10K on those enchants. The mats seem quite insane on them and prices should remain high until people truly have LFR on farm, which should be at least another few months.

    Sha Crystals are now the biggest profession bottleneck I can think of aside from Imperial Silk, and it's mostly because the patterns require so MANY of them--the weapon enchants take ten whereas the Cata equivalents took only four Maelstroms. One single enchant takes ten epic disenchants or ten days of transmutes--that's a steep price for just an enchant and will keep Sha Crystals scarce for a long, long time. Spirit of Harmony at least can be farmed, but getting Sha Crystals is tough. How are you guys getting them aside from the enchanting transmute?

    Do you have a jewelcrafter?
    Stacks of ghost iron will make all the necks and rings you could disenchant to mats for sha crystals.

    I agree with you @regular , but I am not selling out of sha crystals all the time..my daily cooldown does not always sell..so they are starting to stock up , then four of them sell at a time.

    I am on a really tiny server , azshara.

    I think you didn't read the original post at all when you replied because not selling out of your daily sha transmute puts you exactly where I was a few days ago before I started seeing the demand from the weapon enchants that caused me to post this in the first place. You should stop selling them singly just as I no longer will, because the enchants that use them are so profitable you will regret not saving the ones you're currently selling.

    I agree, this might be the best way to get sha crystals at the cheapest price. I bet most enchanters aren't using their transmute at all, and I wouldn't be surprised if over half haven't even used it to find that it even has a cooldown. I didn't use mine the first week because I didn't realize the cooldown was there...enchanting recipes have never had a cooldown that I recall, so I just wasn't expecting it.

    So given that a percentage of enchanters may not be aware of the cooldown, I think I'll phrase it something like this:

    /2. WTB Sha Crystal enchanting combine for 50g

    If they're not aware there's a cooldown, then phrasing it this way means they won't know it until after I've already bought their first one for 50g.

    How many drop epics? I've killed about a dozen so far with maybe half being in the upper-level zones (Townlong Steppes, Dread Wastes) and haven't seen anything but blues so far. I think ilvl 440 is the highest I've seen.
