This is the new planar essence of Wrath of the Lich King used in enchants from 375-450.
edit: To quote other wowhead users....
Despite what you may see here, it does take three Lesser Essences to create a Greater Essence. What you see here is actually a quirk of the way Blizzard handles the spell. On Blizzard's end, a two-step process occurs:
You use the first Lesser Essence, destroying it in the process.
A spell is cast, which destroys the other two Lesser Essences, and creates a Greater Essence.
This will disenchant from Nothrend green items.
From armour, there will be a 20% chance to receive an average of 1.5 x Greater Cosmic Essence's, for items that will be roughly of levels 76-80.
From weapons, there will be roughly a 75% chance to reveive an average of 1.5 x Greater Cosmic Essences, for items that will be roughly of levels 76-80.
For green items under 76ish, you'll instead recieve an average of 2.5 Lesser Cosmic Essences (again, percentages shall be based on whether it is a piece of armour, or a weapon), that may be converted into Greater Cosmic Essences in a 3:1 ratio.
This is the hardest mat to collect for me as a tailor.
I can get dust or shards much easier.
Why is this listed as an "Elemental" trade good rather than an "Enchanting" one?
is there a possibility to recieve them by disenchanting from vendors? like the ones in halaa?
or any other northrend reagents?
FYI, Cosmic Essences show up in AH under "Elemental" category, while other enchanting essences are in "Enchanting" category.
Goes for 10g on my realm...
Since the 3.3 buffs to the Infinite Dust droprate, I have actually had a difficult time getting Greater Cosmic Essence from random gear. Perhaps it's a placebo effect of seeing more Infinite Dust in my bags, but it nevertheless feels like I have way less of these Essences.
The icon reminds me of the
Can anyone advise the gun who is the easily obtainable and are good for disenchanting into Greater Cosmic Essence? (srr 4 spelling)
An easier way to obtain these is if you have an alt or friend with enchanting skill 445 or higher, they can use the

Ugh, this is making me wish I had a Wrath level blacksmith just so I could 'force' some GCEs, rather than try and get green weaps or roll the dice with tailored goods. One of the harder mats to farm these days, given how easy it is to get the BC mats required for enchanting levelling, and given that Cata is current content (and as such you're more likely to be running it and seeing greens).
Few ways I did this. Though I did have 2 other enchanters you could ask a guildee or a friend who can
1: The old grind mats and d/e through professions
2: Grind the wrath dungeons that drop epics with someone high enough to d/e them
if you or any of your toons have spare jps since they are BoE ( cos we all know theres nothing worth keeping jps for) and have someone d/e and shatter them
Time to tear up the enchanting guides! This is what you need from 370 to 450 and forget about

If you're making the Northrend Tome of Illusions, the easiest way to gather greater cosmic essences is through Abyssal Shatter (breaking down epic-quality crystals). Sometimes you'll get dust, sometimes essences so it may take a few crystals to get the required amount, but the crystals themselves are very easy to farm with a level 100 (or soon higher) character if you don't have any laying around already.
Just hop into a raid and push over a few bosses with an enchanter character, disenchant all the armor and weapons that drop - boom. You've got more than enough abyssal crystals to crack to make your tome. :)
