Wowhead Economy Weekly Wrap-Up 144 | Shadowlands Enchanting, TSM Ledger & Garrison Goldmaking
WoW Economy Weekly Wrap-Up
Hello! Welcome to the 144th edition of the WoW Economy Weekly Wrap-up!
My name is

. I have a number of guides over on
and I also stream my adventures on
Bilis's Shadowlands Enchanting Overview & Guide
has been doing some extensive research into the Enchanting profession and has posted the results with an excellent
Greetings fellow goblins,
I have spent quite a bit of time testing professions and gathering data on disenchanting rates on the beta (only recently got access) and hopefully I can provide some information that will be useful to others.
In Shadowlands, different professions have different skill ceilings. Enchanting can be leveled up to skill 115. Leveling enchanting is fairly quick and inexpensive. Here's a breakdown of how you can level it and how many materials you can expect to spend:
Disenchant Shadowlands items. it took me ~66 items to get to skill 25.
You gain materials disenchanting items.
Craft 3x Weapon - Celestial Guidance
6 Sacred Shards + 15 Soul Dust
Craft 9x Chest - Sacred Stats
36 Soul Dust
Craft 5x Ring - Bargain of Critical Strike
5 Sacred Shards + 10 Soul Dust
Craft 5x Ring - Bargain of Haste
5 Sacred Shards + 10 Soul Dust
Craft 5x Ring - Bargain of Mastery or Ring - Bargain of Versatility
5 Sacred Shards + 10 Soul Dust
Craft 10x Cloak - Soul Vitality
40 Soul Dust
Craft ~6.67x Cloak - Soul Vitality (yellow skill, so 75% chance to get a skillup per craft)
~26.67 Soul Dust on average
Combine 3 Sacred Shard into 1 Eternal Crystal, then craft Eternal Crystal to shatter the Eternal Crystal into 3 Sacred Shards. Repeat roughly 87 times.
You need at least 1 Eternal Crystal, 3 Sacred Shards or 9 Soul Dust for this, but no materials are actually consumed in the process.
Craft any of the Ring - Tenet enchants. You need to craft 6.67 enchants on average.
20 Sacred Shards on average
Craft 5x Chest - Eternal Stats, Eternal Skirmish and/or Eternal Bounds
5 Eternal Crystals + 10 Sacred Shards
Craft 5x Weapon - Eternal Grace and/or Lightless Force
5 Eternal Crystals + 20 Sacred Shards
Craft ~6.67 Chest - Eternal Bounds and/or Eternal Skirmish and/or Eternal Stats
~6.67 Eternal Crystals + ~13.33 Sacred Shards on average
This is the cheapest way to level up enchanting (unless you have access to the Sacred Shard shatter that requires honored reputation with "The Wild Hunt", then you can level 45-60 doing the shatter and save 10 Sacred Shards and 60 Soul Dust). If you add up all the materials, it takes roughly 146.67 Soul Dust + 84.33 Sacred Shards + 16.67 Eternal Crystals to skill from 25-115. Since you can convert dust to shards and shards to crystals, you can get all the materials needed just by disenchanting uncommon items. You'll need a total of approximately 549.67 Soul Dust. That's what you'd get if you disenchanted ~243-244 uncommon items.
When you are leveling up enchanting, you'll want to keep an eye out for all of the materials as well as uncommon, rare and epic items.
The really interesting part further down is Bilis's analysis on the numbers for disenchanting and the fact that each base material can be easily transformed into the other and back the other way ...
How to compare items:
In Shadowlands enchanting materials have an interesting property: You can right click 3 Soul Dust to convert them into 1 Sacred Shard and you can right click 3 Sacred Shards to convert them into 1 Eternal Crystal, which also means that you can convert 9 Soul Dust into 1 eternal Crystal. You don't even need to be an enchanter to do this.
There are also two recipes for enchanting that let you do the opposite. One recipe lets you shatter 1 Eternal Crystal into 3 Sacred Shards (this recipe is taught by the trainer), and one recipe that lets you shatter 1 Sacred Shard into 3 Soul Dust (this recipe requires honored reputation with "The Wild Hunt" in Ardenweald and can be purchased from a vendor for 1350g).
What this means is that all Shadowlands enchanting materials can be converted into any other Shadowlands enchanting material. We can use this to assign a score to items based on how many materials we will get if we disenchant them:
Uncommon items disenchant into 2.258 Soul Dust, so we can assign them a score of 2.258 * 1 = 2.258
Rare items disenchant into 1.406 Sacred Shards and 1.5 Soul Dust, so we can assign them a score of 3 * 1.406 + 1 * 1.5 = 5.718
Epic items disenchant into 1.055 Eternal Crystals and 0.349 Sacred Shards, so we can assign them a score of 9 * 1.055 + 3 * 0.349 = 10.542.
The score represents how many Soul Dust we'd get from the item if we were to disenchant it and convert all the enchanting materials we get into Soul Dust.
You can use these scores to figure out which item gives you the most materials per gold spent. For example, let's say you can craft epic items for 1000g/ea, rare items for 200g/ea and uncommon items for 120g/ea. You can then use the scores to calculate how much it would cost you to get 1 Soul Dust:
Crafting and disenchanting epic items will give you 1 Soul Dust per 1000g / 10.542 = 94g85s87c.
Crafting and disenchanting rare items will give you 1 Soul Dust per 200g / 5.718 = 34g97s73c.
Crafting and disenchanting uncommon items will give you 1 Soul Dust per 120g / 2.258 = 53g14s44c.
In this example, crafting and disenchanting rare items would clearly be the best option.
Making gold through conversions:
Since you will be able to convert enchanting materials up and down without a loss or CD, you might expect that prices on the auction house will always reflect that.
If Soul Dust for example goes for 50g on the AH, you might expect Sacred Shards to go for 3 * 50g = 150g and Eternal Crystals to go for 9 * 50g = 450g. But in reality, this likely won't always be the case and there will be room for us to make a profit by buying the enchanting material that is priced too low compared to the other two materials and then converting what we bought and reselling it.
For example, Eternal Crystals might be listed at 600g/ea, Sacred Shards at 150g/ea and Soul Dust at 65g/ea. In a situation like this, you can buy Sacred Shards for 150g and turn them into 3 Soul Dust that sell for 3 * 65g = 195g, and/or you can turn the Sacred Shards into Eternal Crystals which would give you 200g per Sacred Shard.
I will keep updating this post with more disenchanting data in the future, but I think the data we have should be a good starting point for now.
Enchanting in Shadowlands will be really interesting!
Thankyou Bilis for sharing your data. Enchanting is going to be an interesting profession due to the sheer number of enchants you can craft over multiple slots. There will be plenty of variety and diversity to make some gold, so long as the profit margins remain strong.
The TSM team have continued to
develop opportunities to analyse data
with the launch of a new web-based tool to graph your accounting data...
It’s been possible to export your TSM Accounting data through the Desktop Application for quite some time, usually to manipulate and analyse in your favourite spreadsheeting software. To do this in the past meant maintaining several documents, and trying to figure out how to manually build formulae to interpret the vast amount of data available.
We wanted to power up this area of your gold-making, making it easier to take a deep dive into your sales and purchases to unearth the answer to questions like ‘Which Group has the highest profit margin?’ or ‘Where can I reduce my expenses?’ or maybe ‘Where am I taking the biggest losses?’.
To help you answer these questions, and many more, we’re very excited to announce the latest evolution to the TradeSkillMaster suite, with the launch of TSM Ledger – a powerful web-based analytics tool for your TSM Addon transactions, purchases and sales for Retail and Classic WoW.
TSM Ledger will use your Accounting data, allowing for automatic graphing and charting of your activity in-game over days, weeks or months – using pre-built reports or creating your own Data Queries. You can build your own Dashboards with your favourite searches, and highlight particular metrics that you want to keep track of regularly and personalise your analytic experience.
For those with large gold-making empires, you can filter between accounts, servers, profiles, or characters – making it incredibly easy to identify any weak links in the chain or even capitalise on an opportunity that may have otherwise been missed.
As a TSM Premium subscriber, your data will be automatically synced, so you don’t have to upload anything manually. If you’re not on TSM Premium you can upload things as-and-when you log out of the game, or when you need to.
You may recognise this tool, launched earlier this year by
, and we’re just as excited to welcome him to the TSM Team to offer this tool as a native extension of TradeSkillMaster. You can view what’s upcoming for TSM Ledger on the
, where you’ll see there are lots of cool things planned. We can’t wait to hear what we can do make this tool the best it can be for all of your analysis requirements.
Check out TSM Ledger today, and elevate your gold-making to the next level!
for sharing this. It is incredibly useful to see where all our gold is going!
Updated Garrison Guide for Shadowlands
, well known for making good use of her 50 characters to make gold using WoD Garrsions has updated her guide to include changes that are coming with Relic of the Past and expanding on potential gold making through Alchemy and the
Draenic Philosophers Stone
I'm Drizzling Rose and I have made a Garrison goldmaking guide, i updated it for Pre-patch and Shadowlands and after 30+ hours on beta and 9 hours of editing to my existing guide this is my result.
This is not a "best way" to make gold with garrisons, this is how i do it, and it works for me, over all my 50 toons i make about 1 to 1.5 mil gold a month, so roughly 1.000 gold per toon, per day.
But enough of that, its way easier to explain in the guide itself, i dont really do reddit, so i got help to make this post, please contact me on Twitch or Twitter @ DrizzlingRose on both places, if you have questions about the guide, and i will happily answer them
The board itself is far too detailed to show as one image - please visit the

Drizzling Rose on Twitch
where she will be happy to answer. Thankyou for making such a comprehensive guide and updating it for Shadowlands!
