This has a higher chance to be found from disenchanting weapons, pieces of armor have a higher chance for Arcane Dust.
So if you're looking to buy greens to disenchant into Greater Planar Essences, buy weapons.
If you're looking to buy greens to disenchant into Arcane Dust, buy armor.
Has anyone done any research into the chance to get 1 Essence vs 2 Essences when disenchanting level 70 green weapons? (The ones I saw had iLevel of 120)
I'm trying to figure out if it's worth disenchanting the green weapons I get, or selling them to a vendor for 6-10g.
If you want a cheap and available source of Greater planar essences (1-2 each DE), hope your faction usually controls Halaa and get to the vendor "
" and buy The Sharp Cookie
The vendor carries 3 of them at one time, sells them for 2g 21s 42c. They are
so make sure you DE each one as you buy them.
Generally DE's into 1-2 essences, if your unlucky 2-5 Arcane dust.

The alliance vendor is Aldraan, and the item is Avenging Blades.
Despite what you may see here, it does take three Lesser Essences to create a Greater Essence. What you see here is actually a quirk of the way Blizzard handles the spell. On Blizzard's end, a two-step process occurs:
You use the first Lesser Essence, destroying it in the process.
A spell is cast, which destroys the other two Lesser Essences, and creates a Greater Essence.
This spell here--step two--is the spell that gets listed here on Wowhead.
Because of the new dailies in 2.4, the market is now flooded with high-level greens (from the Shattered Sun Supplies quest reward). Expect the average price for common high-level enchanting mats (Arcane Dust, Greater Planar Essence) to take a nosedive. On my server Arcane Dust has dipped below 75s apiece and Greater Planars are barely 5g.
Keeping that in mind, if you're an enchanter doing the new dailies, it might be better to vendor some greens (or even list them on the AH) than disenchant them. Generally, the more armor a green gives, the higher its vendor value (cloth < leather < mail < plate < shield, and wrist < waist < boots < shoulders, etc). which should help you decide whether to DE or vendor. If your server's economy is like mine (Arcane Dust = 75s and Greater Planar = 5g) then that more or less means vendor ALL weapons, mail and plate armor (except for bracers and belts), because the vendor value far exceeds the AH value of the mats you're likely to get (unless you luck out and hit the 5% chance for the shard). If you've already got loads of dust and essences in your bank, then that's even more reason to start vendoring those greens.
(edit: the less-than signs now point the right way lol)
why isnt there a list of items this from disenchanting like all the other enchanting materials?
Maybe I'm missing something, but it says it takes 2 Lesser Planar Essence to make this yet when you "use" it, it disintergrates into 3 Lessers. Is that right or is it some other lessers we're talking about here?
... that may also be the reason there's no list of disenchants... they expect you to make it from the Lessers, I guess...
IS there any good greens crafted through tailoring that gives greater planar Essence regularly? I've experimented with it but have only gotten arcane dust.
