Gold Making: Jewelcrafting Panthers

5 posts in this topic


Gated behind the Order of the Cloud Serpent faction, panthers are still a great source of gold for Jewelcrafters.

This is a long-term investment. The mounts won't usually sell overnight and sometimes, the undercutting can get ridiculous when others hopelessly try to sell their mounts as soon as possible. You shouldn't be bloating all your gold into this. It should be merely a fraction of your income and it's another great market to invest in, boosting your overall market diversity. Players working toward the Lord of the ReinsLord of the Reins achievement can get up to five mounts from you.

There are several Jewelcrafting patterns gated behind various stages of your reputation with the Order of the Cloud Serpent faction. If you've been playing during Mists of Pandaria, chances are you haven't hit Exalted with your Jewelcrafter. You can purchase Grand Commendation of the Order of the Cloud SerpentGrand Commendation of the Order of the Cloud Serpent at Revered that will increase the reputation gain by 100% on your account. Patch 7.1.5 will introduce Mists of Pandaria Timewalking and with it the  Commendation of the Order of the Cloud SerpentCommendation of the Order of the Cloud Serpent token that will increase your reputation with that faction as well.

There are four color different color variations

For the Design: Jeweled Onyx PantherDesign: Jeweled Onyx Panther recipe, you need to reach Exalted. To craft this mount, you need all four panthers listed above. This mount will take the longest to sell.

I usually craft every color variation once. If one sells, I will craft an additional piece, so I have one of every color up at the same time. There's no need to craft more than one color variation at once. 


For all panthers you need to purchase Orb of MysteryOrb of Mystery which costs 20,000 Gold. The item is sold by Big Keech. The NPC can be found walking near the Siege of Orgrimmar raid entrance. The easiest way to get there is by taking a portal to Vale of Eternal Blossoms in Dalaran.

You will need 20 pieces of Pandarian rare gems corresponding to the mount color variation. Serpent's EyeSerpent's Eye can be bought in the Auction House. They are also a byproduct of ProspectingProspecting KypariteKyparite (quite a cheap variation I've been discussing in my Spirit of Harmony Gold Guide). Alchemy saves up a lot of crafting costs. Let's say you've got a portion of the rare gems needed for the mount by prospecting and still need some. Craft the rest with Transmute: Sun's RadianceTransmute: Sun's Radiance. Another great thing about Alchemy is that it helps create Living SteelLiving Steel and this cuts down your costs even more. There are two methods of crafting it; one is on a 24 hour cooldown Transmute: Living SteelTransmute: Living Steelwhereas the other skips the cooldown Riddle of SteelRiddle of Steel by using Spirit of HarmonySpirit of Harmony (buy in AH).

A list of required crafting materials

Closing Tips

  • Start by selling a single mount if you don't have as much gold. Gradually try to have one of every color variation up on the Auction House at all times.
  • Don't craft Jeweled Onyx PantherJeweled Onyx Panther if you're short on gold and it's a big investment for you.
  • Make use of the trade channel. It can immensely help you find a buyer sooner and if you offer a discount players will usually skip the Auction House.
  • Be patient. As noted above, some mounts may take a while to sell and aggressive undercutting will only decrease your income.
  • For pricing evaluation (crafting costs vs current prices), use the Undermine Journal.

These gold making tips are great. Thank you for doing them. Do you have any info or tips on using and setting up TSM to be effective? Do you even recommend using TSM?

Thank you.

TSM is a must, because posting 500+ auctions per day would otherwise be painful and time-consuming. I've submitted some guides which use TSM, TSM Sniper guide or the daily enchanting routine come to my mind. Are there any specific guides you would like to see?

I was thinking more of a TSM overview. I have dabbled with it some but the amount of overhead required to make it run seems counterproductive unless you're doing very high volume stuff. I'm specifically thinking of something like a guide on how to configure groups for one of the crafting professions. Perhaps things like how to setup groups, what groups are, how to add items, what to do about overlapping items, how to configure crafting costs and posting costs.

Something that would be more of a "Getting started with TSM" using one of the professions as an entry point.

      With 7.3 on the horizon, Blizzard did an official preview of new caster animations with videos and developer comments.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With patch 7.3 on the horizon, we thought it was time to share some updates to combat animations for several casting classes. Similar to what we did with the melee classes at the launch of Legion, these updates are all about priests, mages, Restoration and Elemental shaman, and some additional refinements to Restoration druid casting animations! We’re also continuing to work on even more enhancements for additional classes at a later point in development.
      A little over two years ago, we set our sights on revamping combat animations. The team has wanted to renovate it somehow, but what exactly does that mean? To determine the answer, our development leadership put together a small group of people to come up with a prototype of what we thought could use some cleaning up. You are currently experiencing the fruits of this work with the new melee animations. Our final goal was to create new melee moves that would make the game feel better, but not change how the game was played. During this prototype phase, we also came up with a plan for casters, but didn’t have time to put it into production until now. Let’s dig into some of the things we did.
      We hope you enjoyed this behind-the-scenes look at the new caster visual updates. We had lots of fun creating all these animations and effects and look forward to hearing your thoughts on them.

      In Patch 7.3, Blizzard will be increasing the difficulty and rewards from dungeons across the board. The changes help keep dungeons relevant even at the end of the expansion.
      The following changes will be effective when Patch 7.3 goes live:
      Normal Difficulty
      Item level 845 (up from 825). Heroic Difficulty
      Item level 865 (up from 845). Mythic Difficulty
      Item level 885 (up from 865). Mythic Keystone
      Loot item level will be increased only after Antorus the Burning Throne raid opens. World Bosses
      Loot from old world bosses remains at 860. Loot from Broken Shore world bosses remains at 900. Loot from Argus world bosses in Greater Invasion Points is at 930.

      Our returing player guide is stuffed with relevant information for players that haven't played WoW for a  while and they'd like to give it a go in 7.3.
      If you haven't played WoW for a while, we have a guide for you with all relevant information.
      The main goal of the guide is to keep it short and simple.
      General Tips
      In Patch 7.3, the 3rd relic slot will be unlocked immediately once you reach 110 and there's no need to complete individual campaigns all over again. (Source) You can forget about the Broken Shore content. Artifact Knowledge is now shared. All player start at AK Level 41 and will automatically gain 1 AK Level per week. Only one new Legendary item is added in 7.3. Any player that defeats Argus the Unmaker can get Insignia of the Grand Army. It's rewarded from the quest called The Death of a Titan. More details about the Netherlight Crucible can be found here. Two new factions are added in Patch 7.3: Argussian Reach & Army of the Light, both having new emissary quests. A new Heirloom with an interesting affix was added to the game.  Man'ari Training Amulet. Sacrifice 10% HP to gain 40% increased movement speed for 10 seconds. There are no plans to enable Draenor flying for those that haven't unlocked Draenor Pathfinder. Patch 7.3 Content Rollout
      Not all 7.3 content will be available on day 1.From the latest developer Q/A, the content rollout should look like this:
      Week 1
      Krokuun and the first two chapters of the Argus story will unlock.   Players will be able to unlock Krokuun World Quests. Week 2
      The second Argus zone Mac'Aree will become available and with it the third and fourth chapter of the Argus story. Once you progress through those chapters, you will gain access to Mac'aree World Quests, Kil'jaeden's Terrace World Quests and Western Mac'Aree World Quests. Invasion Points will also open. Week 3
      The last week marks the opening of Argus's last zone, Antoran Wastes. Players will gain access to Antoran Wastes World Quests, the Netherlight Crucible and the new dungeon - Seat of the Triumvirate. All you need to know at this point is that Argus has three zones and once you finish the story in each zone, you will gain access to world quests.
      Reputation Catch-up
      We datamined two Bind-to-Account items related to reputation catch-up with Broken Isles & Argus factions. Sources remain unknown for now. Nathrezim Tome of Manipulation increases rep gains with Broken Isles factions by 200% for 2 hours. The item's intended for alts and doesn't work past level 109. Demon's Soulstone can only be used on Argus and the item increases your reputation standing by 1,000 with all factions. It's good for catching up reputation with the Nightfallen. Gear Catch-up
      New Relinquished items are being added in 7.3 with a base item level of 910. (Source) All items can be purchased for 650 Veiled Argunite (a new currency from Argus World Quests). Crafted gear is now ilvl 885 and can be upgraded with Primal Sargerite via Primal Obliterum up to item level 935. Old crafted gear can't be upgraded.You can disenchant it into Chaos Crystal. There's a new shoulder enchant on Argus that will help you farm Primal Sargerite. More information can be found here. Dungeons have had their ilvl increased by 20 item levels on every difficulty. Normal: ilvl 845 (was 825) Heroic: ilvl 865 (was 845) Mythic: ilvl 885 (was 865) World Quest rewards scale up to item level 895. (Source) With the introduction of the Netherlight Crucible, you can now target specific relic types. Antorus the Burning Throne
      The raid won't open immediately with 7.3, but at a later point (probably in Patch 7.3.5). Once Antorus opens, Legendary items will have a base item level of 1,000. (Source) For more information about Patch 7.3, check out our Argus hub.

      We're going back to Antorus to test some more bosses starting Thursday, and it's all Mythic all the time this week! We also get the first wing of LFR starting Friday.
      August 17-21 (source)
      On Thursday, August 17th and Friday, August 18th we will be conducting raid tests of Antorus, the Burning Throne. Once testing has concluded on Friday we will be testing the first wing of Raid Finder difficulty over the weekend.

      Light's Breach - Raid Finder
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a PTR environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade Sr. in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 110 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.
