    Just tried this. Spent 500g to buy all the herbs I could under 2g per herb. Made the BoP's, sold the Bop's. How have 468.75g, and 17 starlight ink. I think the 17 starlight ink more then makes up for 31.25g.

    TLDR: This works, even at 40g a stack if you consider all the rare inks you get. Thanks for sharing this OP.

    You've still got to factor in the cost of your time investment to set that up and keep it in check, 10 minutes a day once you've got everything setup which could take you several hours if you're not familiar with TSM, not to mention the competition that varies based on server, but for most I've seen glyphs are incredibly cut throat due to their extreme profit margins and low relisting cost. On the flip side, the only real time investment for this is pressing a mill macro while you're watching TV or something

    yeah, now let it spread like a plague so Blizzard will lower the price of Shoulder Enchants to 2g

    @nzall: a stack will give you 1 Starfall Ink on average (2 for Fool's Cap) on top of those enchant shoulders, which run for 50g/each on most of servers, now you can do the math

    Easily a profit. Many different ways to deal with the starlight inks too. Shoulder enchants, or cards.

    nps works more for mulitboxers as we can make 5 or x10 cards in one go and mill x10 faster and yeilds mass profits with free inks.

    But DMC is coming to an end with next tier here soon, tho some realms cards will still sell anyway for quite some time.

    You forgot to take note that every server has diferent population

    The answer is both yes and no
    The higher the population the cheaper the matts are and the more demand the shoulder enchant would be making it a good gold making profession
    but the lower the population the matts are more expensive than the product itself. You will lose too much gold buying the matts. There would also be less demand on the enchant.

    Minimal profit is not worth the time invested.

    So, you had 2172 of Ink of Dreams, and decided to use the vendor...? I mean.., seriously, you couldnt find a better way to make money with this? Only if you are on a tiny server this might be the best idea, but with any decent population, you can get much more then 13k out of 2172 Ink of dreams.

    Yes and no.

    I keep 2 of every Glyph on the AH at all times (best as I can), but always keep an eye out for cheap herbs to mill for Starlights. If I didn't vendor shoulder enchants now and then, I'd be gathering Inks of Dreams faster than I can use them.

    I have a shrewd suspicion that Blizz is going to nerf the hell out of shoulder enchants before 5.2 launches. My server regularly has botted herbs up for low, low prices and I know of at least one guy that uses this trick to make mass amounts of cards.

    I've used it in small measure too, when I have the time and will to mill all those herbs, but I don't need to have THAT much ink, since I only have 2 scribes making cards. Add to that that it's becoming a tougher and tougher sell to get the trinkets sold and I'm not interested enough to use this trick to its full potential.

    While this is correct. Do remember that we're not taking into account the Starlight Inks that are created which sell on my realm for 250g a stack. I tried this method and made about a 300g profit in 10 minutes. If you have plenty of time, why not go for it?

    On KT people are mass buying herbs for 25g a stack.

    The basic's of the shuffle is to Buy herb's at a price for 15-20g(that's what i prefer) Mill them, Craft inks, then turn Ink's into shoulder enchants, Vendor lesser enchants.

    The non basic:
    Buy herbs for 15-20g
    Mill all herbs into pigments
    Craft pigments into inks
    Craft Ink of dreams into [Secret Crane Wing Inscription] or any other "Secret" shoulder enchants
    Craft [Starlight Ink] into any of the Greater Shoulder enchants that are profitable I.E [Greater Tiger Claw Inscription]
    Vendor the [Secret Crane Wing Inscription] and sell on AH the Greater shoulder enchants


    the way this works is that the Bop shoulder enchants vendor for 18g 75s in mop, which is pretty damn good if you can get herbs for around the same price.

    the reason i maxed at 20g is that most herbs give roughly 5-7 pigmets per stack which after a while adds up to alot. each ink takes 2 pigments, each enchant takes 3 inks.

    Seen this posted a lot for a few months now, decided to test it out today on the herbs I had on me.

    Took a small sample of 70 stacks of green tea that I bought at 35g each. After milling all I had enough for 358 ink of dreams and 32 starlight ink.

    Total spent on herbs - 2450g
    119 shoulder enchants to vendor = 2231g
    32 starlight ink at 70g each (on my medium pop server anyway, can sell for 80-90 if supply is low) - 2240

    Total gold after all is said and done is around 4470.

    So I made roughly 2k profit off this small sample. All in all it took me probably 30-40 minutes for this whole process, but I just watch tv while hitting my milling macro and alt tab while making my inks/enchants so it also allowed me to multi task like I usually do anyway.

    2k in ~30 minutes is well worth it to me for all the more effort. Profit goes up even more on weekends when I buy up 100's of stacks of herbs that the botters post for ~30g/stack.
