Making Gold With Enchanting - Power Torrent, Landslide, and More!

This blog entry is dedicated to Making Gold with Enchanting Scrolls.

In the past, I covered only the basics of what I was doing. While the 5 Enchants have different required materials, the principal is the same across all 5. Before I go about the techniques, I'll list the requires materials below:

Enchant Weapon - Power Torrent


  • 14 Hypnotic Dust
  • 8 Heavenly Shards
  • 4 Maelstrom Crystals

Enchant Weapon - Landslide

  • 6 Hypnotic Dust
  • 5 Greater Celestial Essences
  • 5 Heavenly Shards
  • 5 Maelstrom Crystals

Enchant Weapon - Windwalk

  • 4 Greater Celestial Essences
  • 6 Heavenly Shards
  • 6 Maelstrom Crystals

Enchant Bracer - Major Strength

  • 4 Hypnotic Dust
  • 8 Greater Celestial Essences
  • 2 Maelstrom Crystals

Enchant Bracer - Major Intellect

  • 4 Hypnotic Dust
  • 4 Greater Celestial Essences
  • 2 Maelstrom Crystals
  • 15 Volatile Water

Now, onto the methodology. For these Enchants, it is the same idea that is used in several of my other blog posts. As an Enchanter with the most updated version of Auctionator, all I have to do is click the "AH" button when having the Enchant in question selected.

From there, the addon query's the Auction House to give you the most updated prices for all required items for the Enchant and the price of the Enchant Scroll itself. From there, the math is fairly simple. An equation such as the one below can suffice:

(Price of Enchant Scroll in Question) - (# of Required Item 1(Price of Item 1) + # of Required Item 2(Price of Item 2) + # of Required Item 3(Price of Item 3) + # of Required Item 4(Price of Item 4))*0.95

And, as a hypothetical to show how it works, we will first give the following Values:

Scroll of Enchant Weapon: Landslide - 1500g
Maelstrom Crystal - 125g
Hypnotic Dust - 2g
Heavenly Shard - 65g
Greater Celestial Essence - 50g

And now plug them into the equation as follows:

(1500g) - (6(2g) + (5(50g) + 5(65g) + 5(125g) *0.95 = 273.6g

With those hypothetical prices (which really aren't that far from my Server's prices), each sold Scroll of Enchant Weapon: Landslide would give the player a net profit of 273g 60s. As stated in other posts, the multiplication of 0.95 at the end is representing the 5% cut the Auction House takes out of every transaction assuming you're going to sell the Scrolls on the Auction House.

After that, it's all a matter of actually doing it. Going out, getting the addons, checking the Auction House, buying materials, listing Scrolls, and getting Gold. In my opinion, this is one of the easiest methods of Gold-making out there due to the ease of acquiring the patterns and ease of selling the end-result. I can't speak for all servers, but I can speak for mine. If there's room for profit from this method on your server, take advantage of it! It might not last forever, but it's here today. Go out and make some easy Gold!

I hope this write-up has helped to add clarification; and, as always, good luck!

  1. Just wanted to clarify that the mats for Major Strength are 2 Maelstrom Crystals, 6 Hypnotic Dust and 25 Volatile Earth. I don't know about anyone else's server, but on mine this is a LOT cheaper than the mats you posted :)
