wow Gold Making: Obliterating JWC Amulets

9 posts in this topic

A nice thing I've noticed is some crafted amulets from Jewelcrafting are on the Auction House cheaper than the price of ObliterumObliterum. It doesn't apply to all realms, but it's highly probable on more populated ones.

Crafted 815 Necklaces

  • Always yield between 110-150 Obliterum AshObliterum Ash, so in average, it's 1.3x ObliterumObliterum per amulet.
  • The quickest way to check prices is looking them up on the Undermine Journal under Jewelcrafting.

Demonstration

For this I'll be using US-Aegwynn as an example. The current price of ObliterumObliterum is 3,164 Gold. If you visit the the Undermine Journal, you can find current prices of necklaces under Jewelcrafting.

What this tells me is that Sylvan Maelstrom AmuletSylvan Maelstrom Amulet can be purchased for 3,461 Gold. Obliterating it will give me 1.3 - 1.5x ObliterumObliterum, so that's at least 4,113 Gold. If we subtract the investment, I just made 949 Gold.

Calculation Formula

It comes down to two variables:

  • ObliterumObliterum price of your realm
  • Lowest 815 JWC amulet price
(Obliterum Price* 1.3) - Necklace Investment = Profit.

Obliterum Prices

The price of ObliterumObliterum is still good and Blizzard is likely to buff it with every content Patch. In Patch 7.1, the item level upgrade has been upped to 855. It will definitely occur again in the future so that crafted items remain competitive with the latest raid tier.

TSM Import String

The following string checks amulet prices and compares them with the minimum buyout price of ObliterumObliterum

  • 1x ObliterumObliterum min buyout = amulet min buyout, just to be safe.

Credits go to Ficxgo4ari for the string

If % Max Price = 100% then 1x ObliterumObliterum = JWC necklace, if 120%, then it's 1.2x ObliterumObliterum.

I'm not sure if others have posted this as well (I'm not seeing any other comments, but might be because it's a new account I suppose). But on my realm the price of each maelstrom sapphire is roughly 1200-1500g, so it takes 4 of those + the other ingredients and the 5 bloods of sargeras which are inherently worth around 1200g themselves each (if you use them for 200 resources, and then use those resources for the 750g +750gbonus missions and get the bonus, I believe that is the math). 

So basically bare minimum the mats here are worth around 10,000g, and you're making roughy 1.3 of the obliterum, so you are losing 4800g with each one. Or if you don't take the blood price into consideration since it's only for each mission and those are only available roughly two times a day, then it's at least costing you 4800g for the maelstrom sapphire and that is IF it only takes you 4 which means the recipe is lvl 3. 

I'm not trying to be a Debbie Downer or an arse I swear; I've actually read a few of these articles that have helped me make gold. But I don't feel the math here adds up.

Swasie, the post isn't tell you to make Necklaces and then obliterate them. It is telling you to buy the cheap ones from the auction house and make a profit from other peoples stupidity.

Unfortunately not quite worth on my realm. 

People make these as its the only way to get 800 in JC (outside of DMF) and access the 200 primary stat gems, but the necklaces themselves have limited uses unless they roll an actually good stat for the class hence why people sell them relatively cheaply compared to crafting cost - they must also not know how much obliterum you get from them.

This is key in so many gold-making methods. Ignorance is our best friend :D

I noticed that a few hours after I posted it but forgot to go back and change it. I had a feeling something was wrong and went back and re-read it. I thought you couldn't obliterate things made by others, but that's fantastic!

Care to elaborate which amulet have you been destroying? I always get at least 110.

      The latest build brings additional class changes and tuning, but they are not as big as those made in Patch 7.1.5's Build 23109.

      Mind Sear Vampiric Touch Shadow Word: Pain The situation of Shadow Priests in 7.1.5 is discussed in the Shadow Priest Changes Feedback on the official forums. It's an interesting read. Here's the latest post.
      Lore
      To clarify on the 18 seconds thing: The changes to Insanity drain are obviously an overall nerf to Surrender to Madness. That's intentional. We just disagree that it is proportionately more of a problem for lower-skilled players. If you weren't pushing Surrender past 100 stacks already anyway, the difference for you won't be as substantial. If anything, those players are likely to see an increase in duration of their non-Surrender Voidforms.

      That said, there's obviously a lot changing for Shadow in 7.1.5, and once things stabilize, we intend to take another look at the rate of Insanity drain to make sure things end up where they should be.

      Couple other notes for you: We're planning to increase Void Bolt's DoT extension to 3 seconds, up from 2. We're also increasing Shadow's damage across the board in the next build. (Source)

      As you may know, one of the artifact appearance recolors is locked behind the final Legion archaeology achievement, This Side Up, which takes 16 weeks to finish and until yesterday it was not account-wide. As players finally unlocked the achievement and then went to alts to make use of it there as well, you can imagine the less-than-great revelation provoking quite an outcry.
      But luckily, within a day of complaints over it reaching reddit's frontpage a fix has appeared and the artifact appearance is now indeed account-wide! Hopefully when we finally finish Improving on History aka Balance of Power that appearance will also be available for alts.
      Thanks to Feywhelps for noticing, both when it wasn't and was working!

      Location: Horde – US Connected Realms: The Venture Co - Maelstrom - Lightninghoof
      About us:
      Converge has been around since WoW Vanilla and has been raiding together since Molten Core; most of our members have been playing together for years. In its older days, when most of us where young, we were more raid focused and demanded a lot from our members. Over the years we had to adjust our playtime and priorities with a growing list of RL responsibilities and are now, for all intents and purposes, a semi-casual raiding guild.
      At this point in time we are trying to round out our roster and eventually attempt Mythic raids once we feel comfortable with our raid composition.
      Raid Times: 8:00 PM – 12:00 AM Eastern Time – Monday/Tuesday.
      Recruitment: Currently we are only accepting Ranged DPS.
      Legion Progression:
      [EN]    7/7 Normal - 7/7 Heroic
      [ToV]  3/3 Normal - 1/3 Heroic

      Trial of Valor Odyn fix, Guarm Mythic tuning and Helya nerfs and fixes are the headlines for this batch of hotfixes, along with the usual class and quest fixes.
      December 6
      Class
      Demon Hunter
      Fixed a bug that sometimes allowed the leech from Soul Rending to persist after Metamorphosis ended. Hunter
      Freezing Trap will no longer cause the target's next cast to fail in certain cases. Mage
      Ice Block's cooldown will correctly reset at the end of an encounter. Priest
      You can now activate and deactivate Shadowform while mounted.  
      Class Halls
      Players who were unable to submit Artifact Knowledge Work Orders should now be able to again.  
      Dungeons and Raids
      Players in a dungeon during a server shutdown should no longer receive the Deserter debuff. Throne of Tides
      Fixed a bug that was causing Mindbender Ghur’sha to be non-interactable. Trial of Valor
      The Patient Zero achievement should now be obtainable, as intended. Guarm
      Increased the radius of Guarm's Multi-Headed from 8 yards to 30 yards on Mythic difficulty. Decreased Guarm's health by 5% on Mythic difficulty. Developers’ Notes: The Mythic difficulty change to the Multi-Headed mechanic is intended to require the use of 2 tanks on the encounter. We also slightly reduced Guarm’s health alongside this change in order to minimize the effect on groups that were accustomed to only using 1 tank. This is already active in the NA/ANZ region, and will take effect in other regions with their weekly restarts.
      Helya
      The magnitude of Corrupted Axion's healing absorb now properly scales down as the size of a raid decreases from 30 players to 10 players. Resolved an issue that would cause Fetid Rot from targeting more players than intended on non-Mythic difficulties. Reduced the health of several enemies in the Helya encounter on Normal and Heroic difficulties. On non-Mythic difficulties, Adjusted Orb of Corrosion no longer targets Helya's tank targets, similar to its behavior in Mythic difficulty. Odyn
      Fixed an issue that could cause Odyn to sometimes cast a lethal Unerring Blast during the final phase of the encounter.  
      Items
      Many trinkets available from Timewalking holiday dungeons and vendors have had their effects adjusted to more closely match the power level of Legion trinkets.  
      Player versus Player
      Mass Invisibility can no longer be cast on allies holding battleground flags and orbs.  
      Quests
      Havi's message when a player completes "Now That's Just Clawful" will no longer be displayed to all players in the area. World Quest map markers for Kirin Tor World Quests should now function correctly. During “Barrels o’ Fun”, a swirling holy light now radiates from the barrel that needs to be tracked. Players no longer get roadblocked if they teleport out of Well of the Forgotten after interacting with the Bone Pile for the quest "The Rite of the Executioner". Previous Hotfixes.
