Gold Making: Obliterating JWC Amulets

Recommended Posts

MdKTqKG.jpg

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.
^1^T^Soperations^T^SShopping^T^SJC~`815~`Necks^T^SincludeInSniper^B^SmaxPrice^S100%~`DBMinBuyout(item:124125)^SrestockQuantity^N0^SrestockSources^T^t^SshowAboveMaxPrice^B^t^t^t^SgroupOperations^T^S^T^SMailing^T^N1^S^t^SAuctioning^T^N1^S^t^SCrafting^T^N1^S^t^SVendoring^T^N1^S^t^SShopping^T^N1^SJC~`815~`Necks^t^SWarehousing^T^N1^S^t^t^t^SgroupExport^Si:130233,i:130234,i:130235,i:130236,i:130237,i:130238,i:130239,i:130240,i:130241,i:130242,i:130243,i:130244^t^^

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!

      Cross-Realm Mythic Eternal Palace opens next week and Blizzard just announced nerfs for Lady Ashvane and Queen Azshara on Mythic difficulty to go live with it on October 22.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hello!
      Earlier this week, the Mythic Hall of Fame for Azshara’s Eternal Palace reached its capacity, and guilds around the world have until the next weekly reset in each region to earn their Feat of Strength. At that time, Mythic difficulty will become available to cross-realm groups.
      Along with the closure of the Hall of Fame and the Achievement, we intend to make the following tuning changes during weekly maintenance in each region:
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Lady Ashvane Lady Ashvane’s health reduced by 5% in Mythic difficulty. Waterlogged periodic damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Rippling Wave damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Queen Azshara The "Stand Together!" and "Stay!" decree combination is no longer possible in Heroic difficulty. Overzealous Hulk and Tidemistress health reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Draining Azshara’s Ancient Ward now reduces its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Empowering a Ward of Power now increases its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Healer-specialization characters are now less likely to be targeted with decree combinations that include “March!” in all difficulties. Short Circuit now drains 10% less energy from the affected Ward in all difficulties. Essence of Azeroth now has an increased duration if there are fewer than 20 players in the raid in Normal and Heroic difficulties, and lasts 30 seconds (was 25) in Mythic difficulty. As always, we’ll let you know here if we decide to make any further changes.
      Thank you very much!

      Our preview of Patch 8.3 continues with a first look at racial abilities of the upcoming Allied Races.
      Mechagnome Racials
      Mechagnomes have two active abilities available at level 24. The first one allows you to summon clones to distract enemies and the second one allows you to open locked chests and doors that require Lockpicking.
      Hyper Organic Light Originator - Summon Organic Light duplicates to distract your foes. (Instant, 3 min cooldown) Skeleton Pinkie - Allows opening of locked chests and doors that require a skill level of up to 600. (1.5 min cooldown) As a Mechagnome, your limbs work as a Blacksmithing Anvil, Cooking Fire, and Mining Forge. You have a self-heal at your disposal, which heals you for a fifth of your total health whenever you fall below 20% health. The final passive racial passive gradually increases your primary stat (Int/Str/Agi) by 50 every 5 seconds, up to a maximum of 400 when fighting the same target.
      The following racial passives are available to Mechagnomes:
      Combat Analysis - You gather and analyze combat data every 5 sec, increasing your primary stat by 50, stacking up to 8 times. The data decays while out of combat. Mastercraft - You function as a personal Blacksmithing Anvil, Cooking Fire, and Mining Forge. In addition, your limbs include every profession tool. [NYI] Re-Arm - When you fall below 20% health, heal for 20% of your maximum health. This effect cannot occur more than once every 2.5 min. Languages - Common, Gnomish. Vulpera Racials
      Active abilities embrace the scavenger/camping fantasy of the Vulpera. You can set up a camp and return back on a 1-hour cooldown. Next, you have a bag of tricks, used to heal your allies or deal damage to enemies.
      Bag of Tricks - Pull your chosen trick from the bag and use it on target enemy or ally. Enemies take 14 damage, while allies are healed for 28. (Instant, 1.5 min cooldown) Rummage Your Bag - Change the contents of your Bag of Tricks. Now where did you put that...? [NYI] (5 sec cast, 5 min cooldown) Make Camp - Make a camp at this location. Can only be used outdoors. (5 sec cast) The racial creates a camp with fire, a tent and an explosive backpack at your location. You can use Return to Camp as your secondary Hearthstone on a 60-minute cooldown to return back. The camp is visible for others for five minutes and then disappears.

      Return to Camp - Return to your camp. (10 sec cast, 60 min cooldown) When used, there's a short cutscene with a caravan transporting you back to your camp starts playing.

      Passive abilities include a Fire damage reduction by 1%, 5% damage reduction when you first take an enemy hit, and you can find additional bags of goods whenever you kill a humanoid.
      The following racial passives are available to the Vulpera:
      Fire Resistance - Reduces Fire damage taken by 1%. Nose For Trouble - When you first take damage from an enemy, reduce that damage by 5% of your maximum health. Vulpera Survival Kit - You have a chance to find an additional satchel of goods when you kill a humanoid. Languages - Orcish, Vulpera. Other Patch 8.3 Content:

      Ny'alotha Allseer is a N'Zoth-themed mount added to the game in Patch 8.3. It is rewarded from a quest and could very well be the end-of-expansion reward for everyone, who defeats N'Zoth on Heroic difficulty before the next expansion, similar to Legion's Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal.

      The mount shares animations with The Hivemind.

      Last week, Blizzard added Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren along with encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Darion Mograine to the game. In this week's PTR build, four Death Knight Swords have been added.
      If Allied Races and the Pandaren will indeed be able to become Death Knights in Patch 8.3, it would make perfect sense to revamp the starting zone, because the current one is outdated now that Bolvar is the Lich King.
      Blizzard added four Ebon Blade swords to the game on 8.3 PTR that will likely be rewarded to new Death Knights created in Visions of N'Zoth as part of the overhauled starting experience.
