    Probably the same way you get Blood Spirit right now - from disenchanting non-LFR epics.

    Just have to post a QQ for enchanting....yeah people will get new gear and will need enchants, but FFS is it so hard to come up with something new. Why not craft wand at high level, or a mount even like most other professions have? Personally i like the idea of getting a personal enchant that is temporary and equivalent to flasks. Make it cost enchanting mats and enchanters can essentially self buff instead of using a flask.
