I have heard from a lot of sources that the Obsidium shuffle was dead so I set my alerts from TheUndermineJournal to notify me when a single Obsidium ore was lower than 2 gold. About 6 hours later I got an email and picked 144 stacks of Obsidium ore for 31 gold 40 silver a stack; a total of 4,521 gold 60 silver, with my iPhone. I added screenshots so you could see what I saw the day of but mainly to back up what I am talking about and cut the trolls off at the necks.
I prospected it all and ended up with:
- 129 x Alicite
- 128 x Carnilean
- 145 x Hessonite
- 148 x Jasper
- 152 x Nightstone
- 160 x Zephyrite
I also ended up with a handful of rare gems that I will cut and sell. For the sake of argument, I am just going to use the value of them as uncut.
- 5 x Amberjewel
- 9 x Demonseye
- 5 x Dream Emerald
- 5 x Ember Topaz
- 4 x Inferno Ruby
- 9 x Ocean Sapphire
Next thing I did was craft everything I could into the Jewelcrafting pieces and disenchanted them all and had ended up with the following;
- 555 x Hypnotic Dust
- 30 x Heavenly Shards
- 143 x Greater Celestial Essences
There isn’t anything to do with the Zephyrite except to sell them in stacks of 3 on the days they are needed for the Jewelcrafting Daily and typically they go for 15 gold per 3 stack.
Below are the screen shots of the markets from TheUndermineJournal.
If I were just to sell the mats and raw gems I would make about;
- 6,147 gold 57 silver for the Greater Celestial Essences
- 1,548 gold 45 silver for the Hypnotic Dusts
- 3,108 gold for the Heavenly Shards
- 800 gold for the Zephyrite
- 38 gold 15 silver for the Amberjewel
- 306 gold 90 silver for the Demonseye
- 33 gold 25 silver for the Dream Emerald
- 215 gold for the Ember Topaz
- 400 gold for the Inferno Ruby
- 44 gold 82 silver for the Ocean Sapphire
That puts my revenue at 12,642 gold 14 silver and my profit after investment at 8120 gold 51 silver.
I use a spreadsheet to figure my threshold to purchase the ore so I am sure it will be worth my time. You can download it here, I left all the data from this market sample but you can put your own servers’ numbers in and see what yours is.
If you want to take it further and have an Enchanter you can look up profitable scrolls on your server and us the mats you collected to make scrolls but that’s up to you here are some of the good ones on my server.
The Obsidium shuffle doesn’t look dead to me how about you?!
