Gold Making: Obliterum

45 posts in this topic

All things Obliterum - how to create your forge and use it to upgrade your gear and more importantly, make some gold doing it!

hTn2dEK.png

Introduction

The Obliterum forge is new to Legion and right now it can be used as a great source for gold making. It is unlocked through completing a quest chain in Dalaran and essentially allows the user to destroy crafted items (similar to disenchanting) to produce Obliterum AshObliterum Ash.  Collecting 100 ash produces one ObliterumObliterum.  This can be traded between players (and on the auction house) so players can upgrade any of their own 815 crafted gear by 5 item levels - up to a maximum of 850 ilvl (a total of 7 ObliterumObliterum per item).

As you can imagine, with a lot of players gearing up for raids (just under a week away), there is a huge market for Obliterum right now.

This guide will take take you through the quest chain to unlock your forge and also give you some examples of the most efficient ways to obtain your ash through obliterating.  Due to the fact you can obliterate pretty much any crafted item from Legion (this even includes items such as healing potions and gems, not just gear) - I will not be going into huge detail as to what items to obliterate, but giving a rough overview.  Researching your own server prices and the number of reagents and raw materials on your auction house will be key to maximising your profit! 

I will try and give a few good examples of items you should be obliterating but a comprehensive list would be a bit long!

Due to the fact that there is potential gold to be made this is a very very competitive market. Depending on your profession you may not be able to compete with other players in producing ash as efficiently so it may be worthwhile doing some research before you invest a lot of time and effort in getting hold of the materials to create your forge.  

Some addons like TSM may help you in calculating crafting costs but it may be worthwhile sitting down and just crunching some numbers and see how items pan out for your particular profession and your particular server.

Creating Your Forge

In order to obtain your own forge you are required to complete a fairly straight forward quest chain.  The chain starts in Dalaran in the Magnus Commerce exchange area of Dalaran (outside the Engineering shop)

The quests aren't too taxing and for most players, obtaining the four individual bracers may prove the most difficult.  Although the sewer quests can be a little frustrating it shouldn't take you too long to get through them and have you own shiny forge up and running!

Obliterating your items

23ash.PNG

As mentioned above pretty much any crafted item from Legion can be Obliterated.  It works in a very similar way to enchanting where you disenchant the item into particular materials.  This item is completely destroyed in the process and cannot be retrieved so just like disenchanting it is important you aren't obliterating anything you may want to keep hold of.  If like mine, your bags are particularly messy (and you have a few crafted items you want to keep or sell rather than obliterate) - put them in your bank or to one side so you don't accidentally destroy them (can you tell I've done it myself).  With the fel forge you will only ever receive Obliterum AshObliterum Ash, however the amount will vary depending on the actual item you choose to obliterate.

Obliterating can be a fairly time consuming process.  To speed this up there is a addon called Easy Obilterate.  It is considerably faster so check it out.  Here is the link to Curse.  

 

One thing to take into consideration is your time.  Although it is perfectly viable to obliterate lots of items (it sometimes yields greater ash in total for the raw materials you use in the crafting process), obliterating certain items that offer only 1-2 Obliterum AshObliterum Ash can take a very long time.  Where possible it may be worth your while finding a recipe that yields greater ash per obilterate (as long as you are still able to make a viable profit).  This is even more true if your playtime is limited due to work / school or other real life constraints (oh man to be a student again!).  Use your own judgement here, and again crunch those numbers, research in depth for your particular profession and remember, any time you do save can be spent doing other gold making activities such as farming, posting auctions or investing in your character!

What items should I Obliterate

I won't go into specifics for each item  / profession.  The figures I am giving below aren't exact and the ash will vary, but should give you some indication of an average figure.  As I haven't been able to complete each profession I have had to get some of the figures from elsewhere (guildies etc) so it is always best to research yourself for your own profession or do some testing using your own materials.  If you feel any of the values below are wrong please don't hesitate to let me know below and I will update accordingly!  

It goes without saying that the more materials you put into each craft the more ash you generally get.  Some more expensive crafts will net you more ash overall, however may cost you considerably more as prices on certain reagents are high so I can;t stress enough - research and number crunch according to your own server prices and continually check these items periodically as the auction house price on a large number of crafting materials is very volatile!

Wherever possible, look to obtain rank 3 recipes to reduce the overall materials required and / or increase the number of items produced.  Chances are there will be players on your server using the same recipes as you are, but if they have a higher ranked recipe they can stretch their materials further and it will impact on your profit potential as they can undercut you further!

For Leatherworkers, Tailors and Blacksmiths

715-795 crafted gear = 2-3 Obliterum AshObliterum Ash

815 crafted gear (no Blood of SargerasBlood of Sargeras) = 10-20

815 crafted gear (2x Blood of SargerasBlood of Sargeras) = 15-25 (more for the expensive recipes with rare reagents)

Alchemy

Potions = 1-2 ash (crafting potions at rank 3 will increase your overall yield significantly but don't calculate these bonus procs to be safe)

Flasks = 5-10

Alch Trinkets = 115-170

Jewelcrafting

Green Gems = 1 ash

Blue Gems = 10-15

715-795 crafted rings and neck = 2 ash

815 rings = 50-70

815 necks = 150-180

Engineering

715 Goggles = 5-8 ash

I sadly don't have much information as of yet for Inscription items or Engineering - so if anyone could help me with those that would be much appreciated!

 

Obliterating Crafted Gear when you are finished with it

I managed to get an upgrade for my gloves which were 7/7 850ilvl crafted.  I obliterated these and managed to obtain 202 ash.  So if you do swap your gear ensure you obliterate it afterwards! 

So far I have Obliterated

7/7 850 gloves - 202 ash

7/7 850 belt - 197 ash

What am I Obliterating?

So as I have been pretty vague as to what to obliterate I wanted to go into a little more depth as to how I am obtaining my Obliterum AshObliterum Ash to use for both my own gear and sell on the auction house.

My main character currently has both Enchanting and Leatherworking. 

I use the auction house to purchase all of my Stonehide LeatherStonehide Leather (I don't farm through skinning).

I am taking full advantage of the fact that I can obtain  Blood of SargerasBlood of Sargeras through disenchanting items that I craft, essentially giving me an unlimited supply of bloods without having to leave the auction house / mailbox (sad I know!)  It requires a bit of shuffling to ensure that I am using all of the materials produced (such as the enchanting materials) without having anything go to waste.  The Chaos CrystalChaos Crystal and Leylight ShardLeylight Shard that I receive through disenchanting I craft into enchants or just sell as raw material, but the main goal is to obtain  Blood of SargerasBlood of Sargeras.

So as a bit of a step by step process:

1. Buy a LOT of Stonehide LeatherStonehide Leather from the auction house (on my server I am willing to pay up to 15g per leather)

2. Craft as many Warhide BindingsWarhide Bindings as possible using the rank 3 recipe Warhide Bindings.  This will result in some epic "procs" which will give a nice profit when disenchanted into Chaos CrystalChaos Crystal.  I break about even with the rare quality ones with Leylight ShardLeylight Shard.  Through disenchanting these items you will receive a few   Blood of SargerasBlood of Sargeras.  The "drop" rate for the bloods is pretty low but is sufficient for my ash needs (just be prepared to disenchant quite a few bindings to get enough bloods for one full obliterum).

3. Use the  Blood of SargerasBlood of Sargeras and craft Dreadleather BeltDreadleather Belt using the rank 3 recipe Dreadleather Belt

4. Obliterate the Dreadleather BeltDreadleather Belt into 15-25 Obliterum AshObliterum Ash

5. Combine 100 Obliterum AshObliterum Ash into 1 ObliterumObliterum 

6. Profit

It can take quite a while, but the important thing here is the fact that I am able to get involved in quite a large number of markets as well as having the ObliterumObliterum  as an "end" product.  If prices drop on leather I am able to obtain more profit.  My calculations are all based on my own server pricing and to ensure I don't lose out I don't take into account any of the epic procs of the Warhide BindingsWarhide Bindings (incase in a particular crafting session I don't get lucky).  Enchants are a great way to make gold right now so it fits hand in hand with the Obliterum I am producing.

I appreciate that this is possibly very niche (as it requires you to craft the items on the same character as your enchanter to make use of the bloods) but if you are a gatherer and you have a decent supply of blood yourself then have a think about using some of the blood crafts.  Although not "free" the bloods I obtain are a by-product of my enchanting and therefore it essentially makes the belt recipe give me 20-30 ash for just 12 leather!

I hope this encourages you to perhaps "think outside of the box" with your own professions and to give those numbers a crunch and get stuck into your forge! Strike while it's hot and before everyone gets raid gear :P!

Wrap Up

I hope this guide has been useful!  I think its a great addition to the game and right now there is still plenty of opportunities to use it not only to make gold from, but perhaps to make your own obliterum for your own gear, more efficiently.

If you have any ideas, suggestions, or want to share what you are currently obliterating and why (a little like what I have done for leatherworking) it would be great for you to share them!

The great thing about this guide is that it does what gold makers do best: Discovering something and improving on it. 

I'm sure the next step will be looking at other crafted items and then creating one big HUGE spreadsheet that ties together all the prices of crafted items to make a shuffle, and then ultimately, a fancy TSM script.

I would be very careful with Obliterum, the market has exploded with new sellers due to guides just like this and prices have taken a massive hit. There is still profit in it but it's no longer as smooth as before and lots of buyers are utilising these methods to create their own instead of buying outright. 

I made about 500k from this in the past week but right now I'm struggling with it since there are lots more competition for resources to create it and not enough buyers, at least on my realm.

I've been told there has been a dupe wave on US servers since I wrote this the other day (only just posted it) so take care on US side.  Thankfully I havent seen anything on EU just yet!

hello I got a question, what is a good way to make obliterum with tailoring ? :(

I don't have any specific items in mind other than the ash values above (similar to leatherworking) but it's worth experimenting a little if you can without spending too much on materials.

@Peelyon, I have a question : don't you feel slightly bad about this job? I mean, you reveal this intricately crafted gold making scheme that's completely fair and economically natural, but as @Sodam said, more competition makes it less effective. It's not like you mind losing gold as you are probably the richest person to play WoW ever, period. and the official "Gold maker person man guy" (C), but maybe somebody else FeelsBad?

On the side and completely unrelated note, this came to my mind because there is a guy in Magic: The Gathering community working on a pretty popular site who makes videos with wacky decks using junk rares that nobody would ever thought to work but they work, and that can sometimes spike card prices. Up to 1000%! - that is, most of the time, going from 0.01$ to 1$. Plus Reddit/Twitter sometimes can meme out and spike prices based on hype too. Doesn't that happen in WoW?

Firstly my reach isn't big enough to make a difference :P

Secondly the majority of "serious" gold makers are already doing it.  I was pretty slow to get this post up and the early uptake gold has kind of gone now.

Lastly - you'd be surprised how lazy people are.  A lot of people will see a technique or a method and think "ooh that's a great idea" but actually then going in game and putting it into practice is a different thing altogether. It's why I wanted to put my own example of how I get Obliterum in a bit more depth to show the effort I put in.  However the method above it just as much for the enchanting materials than the Obliterum itself.

I haven't sold any Obliterum today but my enchant sales are crazy good

That's just from today.

Laziness is the key to making gold in WoW. Not your own laziness, but other people's. They are too lazy to do the most simple tasks, it's crazy.

Some people don't have that much time in game, others just don't enjoy any form of gold making.  There's a lot of players that want to login - do the content they like whether its raids dungeons PvP etc then logoff without worrying about gold.

A lot of those players gain gold very passively through thinks like boss kills WQ's now (garrisons in WoD) and somehow manage to survive enough to repair their gear :P

Then theres players that enjoy gold making and make a lot of gold in other ways so they can be lazy in others.  I'm a perfect example in some sense - I am super strict and calculate profits on certain items, then go to the auction house on raid breaks and spend a fortune on a cut gem knowing the player is making a huge profit.  It doesn't bother me too much because ultimately there are SO many ways of making gold its pretty tough to keep on top of everything at once.

Wow that was a bit of a mini rant XD

I completely agree, but there are definitely people that just can't be buggered to do half of the gold-making stuff. I understand limited time frames and such, but that low ore market is just glorious!

This is not the case, just tested and got 2 ash.

What exact item level did you obliterate? Will help Peelyon to keep this updated if you can give any extra information.

The 765 azsunite neck, but I'm fairly certain all items in this band only give 2 ash.

Thank you for the guide!

Quick question what is the return on crafted items that have been upgraded with obliterum? Do you get the obliterum back? More ash? Or the same as if it was still an 815?

Thanks again!

You get more dust, yes, but you do not get the same amount that you put in. Not sure of exact values.

Yeah sorry Sniz I've not needed to swap out any gear I've upgraded yet so dont want to test it just yet. For obvious reasons it wont be the same value as you put into it though.  So ideally it would only be for your own gear after you've finished with it rather than uusing it as a viable method of gold making!

      War of Thorns will be available on live servers starting the week of July 24. The event has two stages and culminates in burning down Teldrassil. Here's our gameplay preview from the Alliance side.
      Check out our War of Thorns preview from the Alliance perspective!
      The following article contains spoilers.
      War of Thorns
      War of Thorns is the pre-expansion event that will be available on live servers the week of July 24, 2018 through BfA launch. The questline consists of two stages: Stage #1 ends with the Horde forces advancing to Darkshore. Completing it unlocks Darkshore World Quests  Stage #2 ends with the Alliance evacuating Darnassus and taking the portal to Stormwind when Teldrassil's burned down. Important cinematics from this stage are still missing! It remains unclear who actually burned down the World Tree. All quests reward reputation with the Alliance. You can earn the following faction mounts by completing the second part of the pre-expansion event: Smoldering Reins of the Teldrassil Hippogryph (Alliance) War-Torn Reins of the Undercity Plaguebat (Horde) You can find the War of Thorns preview from the Horde perspective here. Quests
      Part One
      A Short-Lived Peace
      The initial quest's offered by Anduin who tells you how bravely you fought in the name of the Alliance, but more needs to be done given that he received a disturbing message from Alliance operatives in Orgrimmar.
      The Horde Uprising
      Unbeknownst to Anduin (who thinks that Horde forces gather in Silithus to get ahold of Azerite), you're supposed to report to Mathias Shaw for further instruction when all of a sudden he appears and tells you his reports were wrong:
      A Disturbance in Ashenvale
      Tha kaldorei forces already set sail for Silithus, but the Horde's attack on Ashenvale has begun. This piece of information is important, because the Alliance will get wrecked by the Horde big time, as they don't have enough forces to defend themselves. You are told to report to Captain Delaryn Summermoon in Astranaar. Go outside and enter Field Marshal Cogspark's portal to Astranaar.
      The Light of Elune & Knives of the Forsaken
      In Astranaar, you'll find Summermoon and many poisoned civilians.
      Objective of these quests is to honor bodies of the fallen in Astranaar and fight Undead Rogues.
      A Soft Glow
      Go find Malfurion in Ashenvale (at the entrance to Darkshore). He'll be fighting Sylvanas and creates a wisp wall to fend them off and win some time. Horde soldiers will try to pass it, but get killed by the wisps.
      Hidden Amongst the Leaves & Mercy for the Mad
      Captain Summermoon informs Malfurion that Horde forces gather at Zoram'gar Outpost.
      Slay 8 Frenzied Blackwood Furbolgs and send 8 Druids to defend the Grove of the Ancients.
      Garden Grove
      Meanwhile, the sacred grove is already under attack by Goblins and you must go defeat the Monstrous Shredder.
      Enraged Furbolgs & Elves in the Machine
      Something's going on at the Blackwood Den. You are sent to investigate the disturbance. Entering Blackwood Den reveals that it's under attack by the Horde and you must save Elder Brolg, Gren Tornfur and Elder Brownpaw. At the same time, Summermoon will offer a quest where you must sabotage Horde demolishers. Remain in close range of her to gain stealth and Horde forces won't be able to detect you. Saving a furbolg triggers the following broadcast text:
      The Wake of Something New
      Onu's pain grows and you are sent to Nazj'vel to investigate the disturbance.
      Azerite Denial & No Horde Allowed
      You'll find Horde forces collecting Azerite at Nazj'vel and must prevent them from gathering Azerite.
      Malfurion Returns
      Malfurion needs your aid at the Wildbend River.
      "Rock" The World
      Speak to the Tree of Life to start fighting Horde forces. You'll have access to multiple spells including a self heal.
      Long Away
      Regroup with Malfurion and Delaryn at Darnassus. At this stage, we had to talk to Zidormi, because Teldrassil was already burned down and inaccessible.
      A Looming Threat
      Stalemate at the Wildbend River can only be ended when you rally the kaldorei forces in Darnassus. In the meantime, Malfurion awaits the Alliance fleet in Rut'theran Village.
      Talking to Malfurion Stormrage ends the first part of the questline. At this point, players will unlock Darkshore World Quests. The second part probably won't be available immediately.
      Part Two
      A Threat from the North
      The Horde must have scaled the mountains of Felwood in the North. The wisp wall is failing, it is only a matter of time before the Horde breaks through.
      Rescue Effort & Defending Lor'danel & Action This Day
      The suddenness of the Horde's attack gave citizens little time to flee. Many are hiding in Lor'danel waiting for help. Evacuate 8 Lor'danel citizens and slay 15 Horde attackers. In order to complete the third quest, you must slay two Horde warriors that have led a charge to try and capture the Alliance fleet.
      The Guidance of Our Shan'do
      Lor'danel is overrun and the Horde doesn't relent. Seek out Malfurion in Darkshore. You will find him fighting Sylvanas. High Overlord Saurfang joins the fight and delivers a blow to Malfurion that almost kills him. Tyrande appears and tells you that the war is lost. You are ordered to take her hippogryph to Darnassus.
      A Flicker of Hope
      Darnassus must be evacuated before it burns to ash and you must douse (Bucket of Moonwell Water) the flames and rescue trapped civilians. A three-minute timer will start as soon as you accept the quest and it automatically completes when the timer expires.
      When the time expires your body becomes heavy as your lungs fill with smoke...
      From the Ashes...
      Genn Greymane suddenly appears from the Stormwind portal.
      Take the portal to Stormwind and talk to Anduin to receive your Smoldering Reins of the Teldrassil Hippogryph mount.
      Environmental Changes
      Darnassus & Darkshore
      Darnassus can no longer be accessed and fatigue will eventually kill you. Players can talk to Zidormi in Darkshore to witness the world before the burning of Teldrassil, allowing them to access Darnassus again.

      Stormwind
      Night Elves have been forced to retreat to Stormwind.

      Full Gameplay Preview
    • By Stan
      Gameplay preview of the War of Thorns event, starring the morally gray Horde and their march upon the kaldorei.
      War of Thorns is the Battle for Azeroth pre-expansion event that culminates in the burning of Teldrassil. It should be available on live realms the week of July 24. Here's a gameplay preview of the event from PTR with all important information from the Horde perspective.
      The following article contains spoilers.
      War of Thorns
      Available the week of July 24  through Battle for Azeroth launch. The event had two stages of testing on the PTR and it's possible that they won't be available immediately when Patch 8.0 goes live. Stage #1 ends with the Horde advancing from Ashenvale to Darkshore and unlocking Darkshore World Quests. Stage #2 ends with the burning of the World Tree. Important cinematics are obviously still missing. You can earn the following faction mounts by completing the second part of the pre-expansion event: Smoldering Reins of the Teldrassil Hippogryph (Alliance) War-Torn Reins of the Undercity Plaguebat (Horde) Quests
      Part One
      The Warchief Awaits
      The initial quest is offered by Warchief Sylvanas in Undercity. You can ask her why she decided to attack Teldrassil in the first place.
      The Warchief Commands
      Find High Overlord Saurfang in Northern Barrens.
      A Quick Diversion
      Fly to Astranaar in Ashenvale and talk to Lorash.
      Everybody Has a Price
      Your goal is to poison the kaldorei and disarm Astranaar.
      A Timely Arrival
      The Horde forces now advance through Astranaar and Sylvanas praises you for a perfectly executed strike.
      Zoram'gar Outpost
      Now that the Horde controls Astranaar, Sylvanas tells you that she will continue her hunt for the only creature that can stop your march to victory: Malfurion Stormrage. The next step is to establish a foothold at the base of Darkshore in Zoram'gar Outpost.
      Go back to Astranaar and talk to High Overlord Saurfang to proceed with the next quest.
      On The Prowl
      The objective is to meet Sylvanas near the entrance to Darkshore. You will find her fighting Malfurion and he won't let you pass. He creates a wisp wall, Horde soldiers try to cross it, but they get killed in the process.
      Into the Woods
      You will need to defeat 6 Ashenvale Huntresses and Sylvanas tells you that Malfurion will try to hold you back until his fleet returns from Silithus. Until then, his army is too small. You must find a path through the wisp wall.
      Ripe for the Picking
      Go to Zoram'gar Outpost and talk to Saurfang.
      A Quick Flyover
      Talk to Zarvik Blastwix to fly a machine that will help you destroy wisps.
      An Unstoppable Force
      Now's the time to get past the wisp barrier and you will meet Sylvanas at the wall.
      You must now pass through the wall.
      Clearing Them Out & A Glaive Misunderstanding
      It's time to press on. The objective is to defeat Night Elf forces and glaive throwers in The Master's Glaive.
      Blurred Vision
      Sentry Owls in the trees are reporting everything they see back to Malfurion. It's up to you to eliminate them along with Frenzied Blackwood Furbolgs.

      There's been some changes to the way Blizzard handle PvP disqualifications, specifically those from end of season rewards. Players that have been disqualified from receiving these rewards will also be unable to queue for rated matches in the same season. More details below:
      Season Disqualification (source)
      As part of our continued efforts to combat cheating and unfair play in World of Warcraft, we’ve recently made a change to our policies regarding PvP disqualifications.

      As of the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch, any player who is found to have engaged in unfair practices that result in their disqualification from end-of-season PvP rewards will also have their ability to queue for rated PvP matches immediately revoked. This restriction will continue through the remainder of the season in which they were disqualified, which includes the current “Post-Season” available until Battle for Azeroth launches.

      This change is intended to minimize the impact that disqualified players have on those who are playing legitimately while the PvP season continues, and is just one aspect of our ongoing commitment to upholding the competitive integrity of World of Warcraft PvP.
