Cobalt Ore Gold Mine

My apologies for the lack of posts as of late, I've been having a blast with relatives/friends. I'd like to take a few minutes to share with you an awesome way to make gold that will be dissappearing with the next patch. You may remember my post a ways back which talked about a lengthy process for obtaining infinite dusts and greater cosmic essences cheap. Basically if you have access to a miner/blacksmith/enchanter you are going to make tons of money.


Step 1: Get cobalt ore/bars from the auction house (I don't like to gather but you'll make even more if you do). Remember that 1 cobalt ore = 1 cobalt bar when figuring out the cheapest price. If you can find 4 cobalt ore/bars cheaper then 2 infinite dust on your auction house (prices are going to vary from server to server) then you will make money regardless of your luck when disenchanting later. Odds are you will make 4-5 dusts but the cheaper you can find the ore/bars the better.


Step 2: If you bought some ore then smelt it into bars.


Step 3: Take your stash of bars and make Reinforced Cobalt Chest Pieces (level 77 green). These will take 4 bars per chest piece.


Step 4: Disenchant the chest pieces and sell the mats on the AH.
You will see 4-5 dusts frequently, shards rarely, and around 18% chance for greater cosmic essences.


The reason that this will no longer make you money after the next patch is that they are buffing the number of dusts recieved from green items that get disenchanted. Therefore there will be too many dusts on the AH and most likely 4 cobalt ore/bars will become more expensive then 2 infinite dust. [EDIT: Blizzard is increasing the number of shards required to enchant items and reducing the number of dusts/essences on many enchants.]

I have made 20k gold in two weeks (while on vacation) and played maybe 14 hours total.

GOOD LUCK!

  1. "The reason that this will no longer make you money after the next patch is that they are buffing the number of dusts recieved from green items that get disenchanted."

    This is wrong. They are going to increase the number of shards used in several enchants not buff the number of dusts received from de.

  2. Thank you for the comment, you are 100% correct. Originally when I made this article blizzard had not announced exactly how they would achieve the new 'balance' of enchanting mats.

  3. Jewelcrafters can also produce disenchantable uncommon (green) rings/neckpieces from four of the six uncommon quality Northrend gems, plus two crystallized earth. These average 1.5 dusts each, with a chance at a lesser essence or a shard.

    The green and purple gems are currently worthless, but may become valuable in the next patch. Save them.
