Blacksmithing is one of the professions that can easily profit off of another profession. Blacksmiths have been making golden profits off of enchanters since the beginnings of World of Warcraft as far back as Vanilla WoW. Anyone leveling enchanting or providing enchants to players must have the appropriate enchanting rods. These rods have long been some of my best selling blacksmithing items. Not only do they sell frequently, but the return on investment is usually excellent as well.
Blacksmithing rods are an excellent example of a common commodity. Your blacksmith may also be supplying these rods to enchanters, but the rod itself is only 1 of the materials required to craft the runed enchanting rods. Have you forgotten to play the markets of the other required materials? The rods the enchanters must craft for their enchants are bind on pick-up, which means that each enchanter must also purchase the other materials in addition to the blacksmithing crafted rods. Have you skipped this golden opportunity?
Enchanting Rods And Materials
The bind on pick-up enchanting rods require the blacksmithing rods, but also require various pearls, gems, and enchanting materials. Not all enchanters are going to be efficient enough to create there own dusts, shards, and essenses. Therefore, all of these materials can be profitable by simply selling them on the auction house. If you are already selling enchanting materials, be sure to post a few in the stack sizes listed below.
In addition to the blacksmithing rod the runed rods require the following materials:
Note: Copper Rod is a vendor item and is not made by blacksmiths. That doesn't mean people won't pay up to 30g for one off the auction house.
Runed Copper Rod: 1 Strange Dust, 1 Lesser Magic Essense
Runed Silver Rod: 6 Strange Dust, 3 Greater Magic Essense
Runed Golden Rod: 2 Soul Dust, 2 Greater Astral Essense, 1 Iridescent Pearl
Runed Truesilver Rod: 2 Vision Dust, 2 Greater Mystic Essense, 1 Black Pearl
Runed Arcanite Rod: 10 Illusion Dust, 4 Greater Eternal Essense, 2 Large Brilliant Shard
Runed Fel Iron Rod: 4 Greater Eternal Essense, 4 Large Brilliant Shard
Runed Adamantite Rod: 8 Greater Planar Essense, 8 Large Prismatic Shard, 1 Primal Might
Runed Eternium Rod: 6 Arcane Dust, 6 Greater Planar Essense
Runed Titanium Rod: 40 Infinite Dust, 12 Greater Cosmic Essense, 8 Dream Shards
Runed Elementium Rod: 10 Hypnotic Dust, 6 Greater Celestial Essence, 6 Heavenly Shards
Efficient enchanters will create their own enchanting material components. Removing the materials available from disenchanting items, there still are some major items that should be selling well to anyone leveling their enchanting skill.
- Iridescent Pearl
- Black Pearl
- Primal Might
