Large Brilliant Shards For Honor

Large Brilliant Shards

Large Brilliant Shards have become a hot commodity on the auction house.  There just aren't a whole lot of them people created via lower level dungeoneering, so the price has gone up.  The return of the Crusader Enchant dropping again in Eastern Plaguelands could also play a roll in increasing demand for these shards.  There are many other enchants that require Large Brilliant Shards as part of the crafting components for an Enchanter.  If you have a strong twink market on your server, then this list will be even more appealing for you to profit from your Enchanting Profession. 

Profitable Recipes That Require LBSs
  • Enchant Chest - Greater Stats (+4 All Stats)
  • Enchant Weapon - Crusader
  • Enchant Weapon - Mighty Intellect (+22 Int)
  • Enchant Weapon - Mighty Spirit (+20 Spi)
  • Enchant Weapon - Healing Power (+29 SP)
  • Enchant Weapon - Spellpower (+30 SP)
  • Enchant Weapon - Strength (+15 Str)
  • Enchant Weapon - Agility (+15 Agi)
  • Enchant 2-Handed Weapon - Agility (+25 Agi)
How To Get Large Brilliant Shards

My current ways of getting Large Brilliant Shards include:
  • Crafting items like Runecloth Headbands to disenchant.
  • Buying low priced blue gear off the auction house to disenchant.
  • Farming lower level dungeons on my enchanter. 
Well, I just did some hunting around in game and have found another great way to get Large Brilliant Shards.  You can now disenchant a lot of the PvP gear available in the capital cities.  The one I have been using is Sergeant's Cloak from the Legacy Armor Quartermaster. The Sergeant's Cloak costs only 55 Honor Points and disenchants to 1 Large Brilliant Shard.  I have been racketting the price of the LBSs up to 75 gold each on my server and they are still selling.  That doesn't even include the sales of scrolls made from even more LBSs.   The PvP cloaks will bind to your character so you must purchase them with your enchanter character.  If you still have some of the Bind on Account honor tokens saved up, then you can send them to your enchanter to use those tokens to convert that honor into gold.

So if you are in a pinch to get more Large Brilliant Shards and have honor to spare, be sure to give the Sergeant's Cloak a try as it is a super easy, efficient way of coverting wasted honor to gold.

Anyone else have a good way to get Large Brilliant Shards?


  1. Park an alt at The Behemoth's spawn outside BRD. Kill him periodically and loot the Vilerend Slicer. ~7 min spawn timer.

  2. Running Lower and Upper Black Rock Spire will yield boatloads of mats.
    With an 85 you can blow past the majority of the trash and head straight for the bosses.
    My 85 mage had no trouble doing 3 resets an hour for LBRS and had 75 shards (guild perk would proc 2 shards every 4th D/E or so) in a casual evening.
