Obtaining Cheap Infinite Dust

I recently leveled enchanting on an alt character and reached a point where Infinite Dust was simply too expensive to buy from the AH ( especially when you need 30 or so stacks ). I then thought to myself, what are some cheap ways to obtain some cheap infinite dust? My first thought was shuffling eternals, which turned out to be a great way to obtain some very cheap dust & essences, but that was not enough. I need more enchanting materials and there were no more eternals listed at the AH so, I started doing some research on what items you can craft and then disenchant to yield wrath enchanting materials.

Below is a list of the items that are worth crafting to obtain cheap infinite dust, I found one of the second best methods apart from the eternal shuffle is buying borean leather and crafting any of the named items in the Leatherworking section. I found Leather to be as cheap as 15g/stack and it was plentiful, check what your server has for cheap and proceed to craft X item then DE it for the dust.

8 Cobalt Bars, 4-7 Infinite Dust
Horned Cobalt Helm

8 Cobalt Bars, 2 Crystallized Water, 4-7 Infinite Dust
Reinforced Cobalt Shoulders
Reinforced Cobalt Helm
Reinforced Cobalt Legplates
Reinforced Cobalt Chestpiece


2 Eternals, 4-7 Infinite Dust
Shadowmight Ring
Stoneguard Band

1 Gem, 2 Crystallized Earth, 2-3 Infinite Dust
Bloodstone Band
Crystal Chalcedony Amulet
Crystal Citrine Necklace
Sun Rock Ring

8 Borean Leather, 2-3 Infinite Dust
Arctic Boots
Frostscale Belt
Iceborne Gloves
Nerubian Legguards

15 Frostweave Cloth, 1 Eternium Thread, 2-3 Infinite Dust
Frostwoven Shoulders
Frostwoven Wristwraps
Frostwoven Gloves
Frostwoven Belt

In the end, this is a great way to make leveling enchanting cheap, or simply make some gold with a little flavor. Don't know what to do with all the Infinite dust and essence you've gotten? Why not craft some Major Agility scrolls and list then at the Auction House?

  1. I've always had the best luck with the Shadowmight ring. One eternal shadow and one eternal earth. If eternals are too expensive check the price on your server for frozen orbs. You can trade them for eternals in Dalaran.

  2. I'm both glad and kinda shocked you left out my favorite method. Abyssal shatter.

  3. Can we say "abyssal shatter?"
    My favorite, both glad and sad it was off the list.

  4. Abyss crystals are good for obtaining dust but their prices really fluctuate. This post was meant to provide a sure-fire way of obtaining cheap dust/essences.

  5. On Cenarius, this dust is cheaper than hypnotic dust and there is usually a healthy supply of it.

  6. Abyssal shatter is the only way im getting the dust atm. But i do like that a shard is going for 20g and dust for 6 a piece on my server. what a profit i made from this!
