Found by disenchanting expansion epics. Basically, it's the nexus crystal of TBC.
These can come from disenchanting rare or greater quality items of an ilvl of 100+. They do not come from epics alone.
They seem to be a guaranteed disenchant from epics of the same level.
Can you get those from Disenchanting a crafted epic? (Soulcloth, Spellfire or anything else)
Just received a Void crystal from it, which means Primax is right...
As with the nexus crystals, you'll sometimes get 2 voids out of one epic. I got 2 out of every piece of Frozen Shadoweave set.
Void Crystal Farming
Professions Req. : Enchanter, Tailor (or friends with these)
If you need several of these (like for Mongoose
) and do not want to spend 62 gold per Void Crystal or ninja epic items to DE, then a good Tailoring alternative is to craft (or have a tailor friend craft) Soulcloth Gloves
for the soul purpose of disenchanting them for the Void Crystal. (They do not sell for enough to justify selling them and buying Voids on my server.)
Soulcloth Gloves require:
5 Bolts of Soulcloth (5 Bolts takes 30 Netherweave and 40 Soul Essences )
6 Knothide Leather
4 Rune Thread
According to WoWHead.com's estimated Auction House buy out prices (which I calculated and listed above in brakets) the final cost would be about 75.8 gold to craft this, if you bought all of the mats.
HOWEVER: Netherweave is extremely easy to farm for or get from guildies; same with knothide; Soul Essences drop ALOT in Karazhan, and tailors are the only ones who can use them...most nice guildies are willing to give them to you for free or at a fraction of the AH price.
I would say the true cost of crafting the gloves is about 35-40 gold (buying about half the mats). Even cheaper if you farm mats and have a Karazhan raiding guild with good friends in it. If you have access to lots of Essences, its pretty much just a solo farming exercise.
After that, just DE them for a Void Crystal (and maybe even 2 Crystals). Repeat this little process untill you have as many as you need.

I'd just like to add that if you have the Soulcloth Shoulder's Pattern, you can get the same effect minus the Knothide. It's not much but it'll allow you to cut out a leatherworker if you're doing this from raw.
Regardless of the AH list price, with all the guilds clearing Kara and collecting trash purples like candy supply greatly exceeds demand on most realms with any kind of progression. Wowhead lists 25 uses for these: six rare enchants, void crystals, runed eternium rods, and 17 craftables only available to (and useful for) guilds in BT.
The other day I traded eight large prismatic shards for six void crystals, and only so I could have plenty on hand for when I actually do need them. Stockpile these for when more guilds have gotten to BT, and/or more uses for them become available.
Blizzard are increasing the amount of void crystals needed in certain enchants due to their current abundance. Average buyout on my server is around 30g.
In my server, these are less expensive than Large Prismatic Shard
i dont know why but this actually is cheaper than large prismatics and large prismatics are actually needed for cheaper enchants like savagery
In 2.4 Enchanters will be able to Transmute a Void Crystal into 2 Large Prismatic Shards once every 24 hours.
Solander is right.
Well aren't you the little Nostradamus for the day.
You're pretty close, but it's actually going to be a part of Enchanting. Once every 24 hours, through Enchanting (not Alchemy) you'll be able to split a Void Crystal into two Large Prismatic Shards. This is through a new recipe that's being added in 2.4.
This helps reduce the exorbitant prices currently being seen for Large Prismatics, and helps raise the value of the Void Crystals. While this is the only change planned in 2.4 to help the Void Crystal prices, we're still looking at the possibility of additional 'help' for Void Crystal value in the future.
It is no longer cost effective to "manufacture" void crystals, they generally go for 20g a piece, whereas the two stacks of soul essence needed runs around 40g.
as of 2.4.2 void shatter will no longer have a cooldown
These are extremely easy to get for an enchanter during the
. You can trade in
15 Necrotic Runes
that can all be disenchanted for void crystals. Each one usually yields two crystals. In a few hours of farming the invasion points, I had enough runes to get over 60 crystals. The epic items that drop from the
Shadow of Doom
can also be disenchanted into void crystals.
Are these good for anything now? I happen to have a bunch and I don't if they can be useful for anyone.
Today, it is smarter to vendor the epics for 10g+ instead of disenchanting them for 2g-.
Disenchanted from Epic (purple) items with an item level of 90 to 164
Disenchanted from Rare (blue) items with an item level of 100 to 115 (~0.5% chance)
Can be turned into 2x
Epics that disenchant into Void Crystals are found from:
Bought with Gold
Bought with Honor

I just disenchanted my ilvl 910 leather legs and got this. What the... ? :D
Thanks to some great coding with the recent stat squish, I just DE'd a piece of legion gear, ilevel 230 and ended up with a
