The download will be updated in the next few days to include the 450-525 Illustrious Grand Master guides printed here.

Enchanting 525 Illustrious

* 440-455
     15 x [Enchant Cloak – Greater Spell Piercing] – 30 Hypnotic Dust, 15 Lesser Celestial Essence

     Make [Enchant Bracer – Speed] if Lesser Celestial Essence is cheaper than Hypnotic Dust.

   * 455-460
     5 x [Enchant Gloves – Haste] – 40 Hypnotic Dust, 5 Lesser Celestial Essence

     You can make this one up to 465 if you want to.

   * 460-465
     5 x [Enchant Boots – Haste] – 20 Hypnotic Dust, 5 Greater Celestial Essence

   * 465-475
     10 x [Enchant Cloak – Intellect] – 60 Hypnotic Dust

     Make a few [Enchant Chest – Stamina] if you are selling the enchants.

   * 475-480
     5 x [Enchant Gloves – Exceptional Strength] – 15 Hypnotic Dust, 10 Greater Celestial Essence

     You can also make [Enchant Chest – Mighty Resilience] up to 485.

   * 480-485
     5 x [Enchant Boots – Major Agility] – 20 Hypnotic Dust, 10 Greater Celestial Essence

   * 485-490
     5 x [Enchant Gloves – Greater Expertise] – 25 Hypnotic Dust, 10 Greater Celestial Essence

     You can also start making the next recipe in the guide if you want to, and skip this part. It depends on the price of Greater Celestial Essence.

   * 490-495
     5 x [Enchant Shield – Blocking] – 60 Hypnotic Dust

   * 495-505
     10 x [Enchant Bracer – Precision] – 120 Hypnotic Dust, 10 Greater Celestial Essence

   * 505-510
     5 x [Enchant Boots Precision] – 5 [Elixir’s of Impossible Accuracy], 10 Hypnotic Dust, 10 Greater Celestial Essence

   * 510-515
     5 x [Enchant Bracer – Exceptional Spirit] – 45 Hypnotic Dust, 15 Greater Celestial Essence

   * 515-520
     5 x [Enchant Boots – Mastery] – 50 Hypnotic Dust, 15 Greater Celestial Essence

     You could also make [Enchant Bracer – Greater Expertise] or [Enchant Cloak – Greater Intellect].

   * 520-525
     1 x [Runed Elementium Rod] – Runed Titanium Rod, 1 Elementium Rod, 10 Hypnotic Dust, 6 Heavenly Shard, 6 Greater Celestial Essence

 

Blacksmith 525 Illustrious

* 425 – 455
  80 x [Folded Obsidium] – 160 Obsidium Bar

* 455 – 458
  1 x [Stormforged Gauntlets] – 6 Folded Obsidium, 8 Volatile Earth

* 458 – 459
  Any recipe that requires 3 Folded Obsidium.

* 459 – 462
  1 x [Stormforged Gauntlets] – 6 Folded Obsidium, 8 Volatile Earth

* 462 – 470
  Make 8 from any of the following items:

  [Redsteel Belt], [Stormforged Belt], [Hardened Obsidium Belt] – 32 Folded Obsidium, 8 Volatile Earth

* 470 – 475
  [Obsidium Bladespear] – 12 Folded Obsidium, 10 Volatile Earth, 4 Volatile Fire

* 475 – 480
  [Cold-Forged Shank] – 15 Folded Obsidium, 6 Volatile Earth, 4 Volatile Water

  Make 3 [Elementium Rod] if you have more Elementium Bar.

* 480 – 489
  3 x [Stormforged Legguards] – 6 Folded Obsidium, 24 Elementium Bar

  This gives 3 skill-ups each craft, which is probably a bug, use it until they fix it!

* 489 – 494
  1 x [Fire Etched Dagger] – 20 Elementium Bar, 12 Volatile Earth, 4 Volatile Fire

* 494 – 500
  2 x [Stormforged Helm] – 40 Elmentium Bar, 16 Volatile Earth

  You can also make 2 x [Hardened Obsidium Helm] (16 Folded Obsidium, 60 Elementium, 24 Volatile Earth), but I think Elementium is easier to farm than Obsidium.

* 500 – 511
  4 x [Redsteel Breastplate] – 80 Elmentium Bar, 80 Volatile Earth

  You can also buy the [Plans: Pyrium Weapon Chain] recipe for 20 Elementium Bar and make the recipe up to 510 if Pyrium is cheap. You need to be level 84 if you want to buy this recipe, and you will have to make the starting quest chains in Twilight Highlands, because the NPCs won’t shop up until you complete the quests. If you want to make the Plate PvP set, you should start making it now, the recipes are sold by the same vendor.

  Horde players can find Kuldar Steeltooth at Dragonmaw Port in Twilight Highlands. Alliance players can find Brundall Chiselgut at Highbank.

* 511 – 515
  Read the section above, because from this point that’s the only way to buy recipes. You could start making the recipe that I recommend for the 515 part, so you don’t need to buy the Gauntlet recipe, however I think it easier to sell the items if you make both Gauntlets and Belts.

  4 x [Ornate Pyrium Gauntlets] – 40 Elmentium Bar, 40 Volatile Water

  or

  4 x [Bloodied Pyrium Gauntlets] – 40 Elmentium Bar, 40 Volatile Fire

* 515 – 520
  5 x [Ornate Pyrium Belt] – 50 Elmentium Bar, 50 Volatile Water

  or

  5 x [Bloodied Pyrium Belt] – 50 Elmentium Bar, 50 Volatile Fire

* 520 – 525
  5 x [Ornate Pyrium Shoulders] – 60 Elmentium Bar, 50 Volatile Water

  or

  5 x [Bloodied Pyrium Shoulders] – 60 Elmentium Bar, 50 Volatile Fire

 

Alchemy 525 Illustrious

* 425 – 450
  27 x [Draught of War] – 27 Cinderbloom

* 450 – 455
  5 x [Ghost Elixir] -10 Cinderbloom

* 455 – 460
  5 x [Deathblood Venom] – 5 Stormvine

* 460 – 465
  5 x [Volcanic Potion] – 5 Cinderbloom, 5 Azshara’s Veil

* 465 – 475
  11 x [Elixir of the Cobra] – 11 Cinderbloom, 11 Azshara’s Veil

  You can also make [Deepstone Oil] between 470-475 and then turn the Deepstone Oils into [Mysterious Potion]. You should reach around 477 with this methoud.

* 475 – 480
  5 x [Elixir of Deep Earth] – 10 Heartblossom

* 480 – 490
  10 x [Elixir of Impossible Accuracy] – 10 Heartblossom, 10 Cinderbloom

* 490 – 495
  5 x [Golemblood Potion] – 5 Heartblossom, 5 Volatile Life

* 495 – 504
  It is really important that you stop at 504.

  9 x [Elixir of the Master] – 9 Heartblossom, 9 Twilight Jasmine

* 504 – 509
  1 x [Flask of Enhancement] – 8 Twilight Jasmine, 8 Stormvine, 8 Azshara’s Veil, 8 Whiptail, 8 Cinderbloom

* 509 – 514
  1 x [Lifebound Alchemist Stone] – 50 Volatile Life, 12 Heartblossom, 12 Azsahara’s Veil, 12 Cinderbloom

  Skip this part if you don’t need the trinket. Transmute one [Dream Emerald] and then start the next recipe in the guide or start making [Flask of Titanic Strength] if Hessonite is expensive (currently it is)

* 514 – 515
  1 x [Transmute: Ember Topaz] – 3 Hessonite, 3 Cinderbloom

* 515 – 520
  5 x [Transmute: Demonseye] – 15 Nightstone, 15 Twilight Jasmine

  or

  5 x [Transmute: Ocean Sapphire] – 15 Zephyrite, 15 Azshara’s Veil

* 520 – 525
  5 x [Transmute: Amberjewel] – 15 Alicite, 15 Whiptail

 

Jewelcrafting 525 Illustrious

* 425 – 450
  Make 25 from any of the new Uncommon Gem Cuts that you get from your trainer. You can also make [Jasper Ring] if you an disenchant it.

* 450 – 467
  Make around 20 uncommon gems, or you can make 17 [Hessonite Band]

* 467 – 475
  8 x [Hessonite Band] – 8 Jeweler’s Setting, 16 Hessonite

  You can also make [Carnelian Spikes] if 3 Carnelian is cheaper than 2 Hessonite. You can buy the Jeweler’s Setting from the vendor.

* 475 – 495
  20 x [Nightstone Choker] – 20 Jeweler’s Setting, 40 Nightstone

  Make more Hessonite Band if you have some Hessonite left. You can also start doing the Jewelcrafting Daily quests, you can read about this in the next step. If you are not rushing things, you can buy one rare gem cut and make that recipe up to 500.

* 495 – 525
  From this point, most of the recipes will be purchased from vendor. You need to do the Jewelcrafting daily quests if you want to buy any of these recipes. Horde players can find Marith Lazuria at Orgrimmar and Alliance players can find Isabel Jones in Stormwind. These NPCs start the daily quests.

  Between 495-500, you could also make a few more Nightstone Choker, then you can make [Fire Prism] at 500. [Fire Prism] has a 20 hour cooldown, but it can contain [Chimera’s Eye]. You should make [Fire Prism] every day.

  In short, you either make Nightstone Choker between 495-500, or you do the daily quests for 4 days and buy a meta gem recipe then make that one up to 525, and do the Fire Prism recipe every day. Meta gem recipes turn green at 520, so be prepared to make a lot if you want to reach 525 as fast as possible. The best possible way is to stop at 520, and make one Fire Prism for 5 days.

postheadericon Warcraft Advanced Gold Guide – Other Profession Skills

As noted previously, the state in which a an item is taken to the auction house can affect the price you can expect.

Over the long term, we found having an Auction house runner in Stormwind or The Undercity with Enchanting skills proved the most efficient way of making more gold.

The items that are LEAST likely to sell for a decent amount are green weapons and armour. A look at the disenchanting yield in the auctioneer tool-tip will tell you that if this happens – then 9 times out of 10  – disenchanting makes you a lot more gold.

Warcraft Professions Page Banner

Milling, Prospecting and Smelting all have a role to play here as well.

In the rush to get to Illustrious 525 with these professions, don’t forget these vital abilities.

Here are links to the permanent pages dealing with these sub professions.

 

Click a link above to visit the page. :-)

postheadericon Warcraft Advanced Gold Guide – Using Your Skills

Some professions have the ability to transform one ingredient into another. This gives you a lot of options.
For example. Metal ores can be smelted to be used primarily by blacksmithing or engineering OR they can be left as ore and prospected by jewelcrafters.

The market will be different for each state. It is not the case that a “processed” item will fetch more at auction. Sometimes you should transform the item..sometimes you shouldn’t.
Material master handles these changes for you, but here we offer a written guide to what items become what. There is some help with calculations in the Material Master spreadsheet. However, disenchanting involves destroying weapons and armor – and no two pieces will have the same Auction House value so it would not be right to try and tabulate value for disenchants – you will have to read that section and work them out for yourself based on what your server market is like.

DISENCHANTING

Using looted or manufactured weapons and armor, you can “disenchant” these items to make the the raw ingredients for Enchanting. Sometimes the Weapon sells for the most..sometimes the enchanting ingredients..and sometimes the enchant itself. You need to know which is which

SMELTING

This is the easiest to describe, with one or two exceptions each ore becomes a bar or half a bar of the same named metal. There are some exotic metals, but trade on those is very low indeed

PROSPECTING

Mining provides the raw ore for prospectors to turn into gems. Each ore has a chance of becoming a certain gem or gems. Sometimes the ore sells for the most, sometimes the gem, and sometimes the finished jewel.

MILLING

Last (and currently least) is milling. Herbalists provide the raw material for Scribes to mill to make the papers and inks for Glyphs. Sometimes the herb is more valuable, sometimes the papers and ink’s..sometimes the Glyphs…at the moment however it is rarely the glyphs.

Disenchanting

When you have weapon or armor of “Uncommon” (Green) value or better, an enchanter has the ability to “Disenchant” and turn the item into enchanting materials.
Of couse the enchanter can then either sell these materials, or use them to make enchants to sell either directly to players, or on scrolls via the auction house. The chances are the Weapon or armor will havea different value to the materials, which in turn will have a different value to any enchant you may be able to make WITH the materials.

What an item disenchants into is dependent in the “i-level” of the item

This screen was captured with “Auctioneer” add-on enabled.

 Warcraft Titansteel Bonecrusher

As you can see it does a lot of the hard work for you.
If you have been doing your auction scans daily, then it will give you most of the information you need to make a decision on whether to disenchant an item or sell “as is”

In this vase it recommends Auctioning the item. This is an Epic (purple) item. It is rare to disenchant these.

We know of no better way of calculating the disenchant value than “Auctioneer”

It gives you the approximate disenchant value, and the mean sales value for other items seen at auction of the same or similar I-level. Then tells you which one will be most profitable for you.

You can then decide whether to sell the item, or sell the disenchanted materials.

NOTE

All transformations are based on %age chance. There is a table of items that “could” be disenchanted. You may not get the average amount of items..of course you could get more …
