My Rod shall comfort thee... and make gold

Now is a great time to start looking at markets to get back into.   Many warcraft players are starting to level alternate races and professions again.  One of the most popular to level is an enchanter.   As an enchanter levels his craft,  he has to create the rods used for the next level enchants.

Each rod has it's own material requirements and is many times in high demand.   Many Blacksmiths look at the big ticket items for their sales.  But crafting and selling the plain rods can augment your sales.

As with anything you craft,  keeping your material costs low will increase your profits.  This becomes especially important when it comes to the arcanite rods.   Arcanite is only available through an alchemist who has the transmute arcanite pattern.   There tends to be a large demand for both the arcanite crystals (mined from thorium level areas like silithus or Plaguelands).   Now would be a good time to start to stock up on these when you see them cheap.   For both continual sales now,  as well as future sales during the MOP expansion.

Fel Iron and Titanium bars become difficult to find at times.  Few are doing the Outland and Wrath Expansion areas,  making these two items will become in demand on many servers.  These also might be good targets to use both a craft and long term storage option.  Titanium Bars are also able to be transmute from 8x Saronite bars by an alchemist.  Allowing you to have two paths to obtaining these materials.

These type of niche markets might seem trivial in regards to your larger cost items.  But small and medium profit sales can add up many times to one large ticket sale.   In baseball 4 singles still score the same run as one home run with the bases empty.

  1. you forgot copper rods :)

    I sell 1-3 a week for 5-6g a pop
    not a lot of gold but its a huge profit based on cost

  2. Great list, I am leveling another enchanter and there have been no rods on the AH so this is a helpful single reference.

    But please stop thinking that Plaguelands is a Thorium area, it is a Iron/Mithril area, just look at and there is nothing in Plaguelands at all, Swamp of Sorrows, Blasted Lands, Un'Goro, Winterspring, Silithus are the places to go.
