Level 70 version of Large Brilliant Shard (needed on most enchants), but unlike small and large brilliants, you can turn 3 Small Prismatic Shards
into a 1 Large Prismatic Shard. Smalls can be acquired from lvl 58+ blue items.
Just as a word of advice to fellow Jewelcrafters:
If you're in need of these, Braided Eternium Chains are relatively cheap to make, and guaranteed LPS (or apparently Void Crystals on occasion now!)
As a tailor from disencahnting imbued netherweave robe/tunic i always get one shard and atm i have 11 with many more to come
This item is gained from Disenchanting Lvl 65+ Blues. Items from 61-64 may have a chance to disenchant into this, but will usually DE into a small prismatic.
These shards are great money makers. Best way I know of to go about it, is as stated above with Imbued netherweave.... they usually sell on my server if you look enough for as cheap as 10-12G... buy it, DE it, sell the shard a 15+.
Just check the AH daily for 65+ rares. Will always be some up cheaper then the price of a shard...
As of patch 2.2 you can now "shatter" Large Prismatic Shards to 3 Small Prismatic Shards
For those who like to gather their own reagents, here's a personal favorite method of farming these shards, among other things. It involves a Miner on a swift flying mount, an Enchanter, a Tailor, and a Jewelcrafter. If you have alts with these trade skills, you're in great shape. Otherwise, get assistance from a friend. The Miner is the most critical.
Large Prismatic Shards
of the many lucrative byproducts of this process. You'll also receive...
Greater Planar Essence
A swift mount helps cover a lot of ground, accelerating the gathering process. My favorite area is Terrokar Forest. There are nearly equal quantities of
. Mining provides a moderate quantity of
Motes of Earth
, and a few
Motes of Fire
Mining nodes appear on the rocky terrain surrounding the large regions of the forests, the periphery of Bone Wastes, and the broken rocky edges of the region, at the south, and southwest. With a well-planned route, you can hit every node on the map in about 20 minutes. My route takes me by Shattrath. When the bags start filling up, mail all ore, Primal Earth and gems to your Jewelcrafter.
Prospect ALL the Adamanatite. It provides Uncommon Gems, Rare Gems and Adamantite Powder. (I typically get 1-2 rare gems per stack of Adamantite ore.) The Powder can be combined with Primal Earth to make
. The red, blue, yellow, and green Uncommon Gems can be combined with Fel Iron to make a few very low-cost
, which can be disenchanted.
Balance your supply of Fel Iron Ore with gems. Prospect Fel Iron Ore, as needed. Ideally, you'll use nearly all the ore and gems, except orange (
), and purple (
) gems. Excess quantites of these gems can be sold to a vendor for 25s each. (Better yet, send them to guild members, who are leveling Jewelcrafting. They'll appreciate it!)
Disenchant the rings into Arcane Dust, Lesser Planar Essences, or the rare Small Prismatic Shard. Send all Arcane dust to the Tailor.
Anyone can farm or buy large volumes of
. Send those immediately to the tailor. Use the cloth and Arcane dust to make
. Send those back to the enchanter.
The bracers will almost always disenchant into a Large Prismatic Shard, or around a 1/500 chance of a Void Crystal.
Pattern: Arcanoweave Bracers
drops from the
. That's the ONLY difficult part of this chain. The Jewelcrafter's rings are all trained. The highest requires 320. An enchanter of 300+ can disenchant all of these items.
This is a little complex, but it allows you to enhance the value of ordinary farming, by producing reagents worth far more than the source materials.
I'd stopped selling Adamantite ore, when experience showed that the prospect value was more than double the AH value of ore. Fel Iron and Uncommon Gems are also very cheap. Converting them into enchanting reagents doubles or triples their value.
Arguably, the Arcane Dust may have an Auction House value equal, or greater than the shard. You might be able to sell dust, and buy shards, but the dust market is very full, and sales are unpredictable. I much prefer cloth + dust = guaranteed shard. :)
* * *
If the intent is purely on making money, consider buying Uncommon Gems, rather than Prospecting any Fel Iron Ore. Prospecting 5x ore typically gives you 2-3 Uncommon Gems, and
Fel Iron Powder
. That's about half the value of the ore that was destroyed. Buy gems. Buy ore. DE the Jewlecrafter rings.
Additionally, purchase Adamantite Ore on the AH. You can buy 20g of ore, and get 40-80g of gems out of it.
I'd still recommend converting cloth & dust into shards. The dust market is always very full, and quite competitive. However, there's never been any difficulty in selling a shard, when needed.
This Mat drops from items that require lvl 275 enchanting and over.
instead of the arcanoweave bracers suggested it is a much easier way, and exactly the same mats to make
Imbued Netherweave robe
, this is no instance drop like arcanoweave, but sold by a vendor in SmV
Also as of this moment (roughly a few weeks after 2.3 and the introduction of season 1 gear for honor) the price of shards has risen substantially to up to 50g on some servers. This widens the spectrum of possible crafts immensely, as it starts to include: braided eternium chain, imbued netherweave items, maybe felsteel gloves, that would depend on server prices of felsteel. I'm sure I forgot a few.
Just curious-does anyone know whether you can gain enchanting skill from this? If so, it seems like an extremely efficient way to get 5-10 points up.
The Wow version of SoJ (Stone of Jordan).
The prices on my server have doubled in a few months time.
de'd off some green OL pants today. so the from list isn't 100%.
Edited for Patch 2.4.2.
As of Patch 2.4, two Large Prismatic Shards will be obtainable via Enchanting, by "shattering" a Void Crystal. Long overdue, I must say. :)
At Level 375 Enchanting, you can pick up
after being Honored with the Shattered Sun Offensive. Requires Runed Eternium Rod.
24 Hour Cooldown.
Cooldown as been Removed.
Removed the cooldown from Void Shatter.
Void Shatter recipe now correctly requires 375 enchanting.
why isn't there a list of items that can be disenchanted into this like the other enchanting mats?
I'm unable to find the formula to turn three SPS into one LPS. I'm assuming it's not a drop nor a purchase from a vendor. Any pointers?
All high level blues (~66-70) disenchant into this, and greens from the same level range have a small chance to be disenchanted into this, though they would usually DE into arcane dust or planar essences.
Fel Leather Boots
. I've disenchanted 7 or 8 and they all gave Large Prismatic Shard.
The enchanting skill allows you to change 3 Small Prismatic Shards into 1 Large Prismatic Shard, just like you can do with essences normally, 3 smalls/lessers for 1 large/greater. makes it easier to get the higher lvl enchanting stuff from lower end gear.
If you're tailor/enchanter you can make imbued netherweave robes and tunics. They turn yellow at 370 so you can use it to max out your tailoring. They also d/e into large prismatic shards 100% of the time.
They go for 15g+.
And imbued netherweave robes and tunics are going for 10g.
So i buy the robes and tunics and DE them to Large Prismatic Shard.
Earning 5g. Not much, but alot after a while
This cost 24g on my server. It's freaking expensive.
I have enchanting just to make money in the Auction House. They sell pretty well. Well one day, my main finally farmed pretty good weaps/armor and they needed to be enchanted. I needed like 30+ of these babies and I sold all the ones I had.
To make a long story to short story, I bought 40 heavy knothide leather for 76g (that's the cheapest in my server). Bought 20 blood garnet for 10g. I had 80 arcane dusts from my enchanter. I made cogspinner goggles and DE'd them to this. SO I got 10 Large Prismatic shards for 86g plus the cost of 80 Arcane dusts.
It beats paying 240g for 10 of them.
Edit: As an enchanter making money off the Elune AH, I probably should have kept this a secret. Well it's out so have fun making cogspinner goggles and making Internet money and stuff.
Hahaha - just bought three of these for 1 copper - yes you read right - from Gadgetzan AH - I guess I accidentally intercepted a transfer between an alliance and a horde account - bet they were P*ssed
is void shatter learnt from trainer? stupid link is only bringing up large prismatic shard spam
Edit nm found it - shattered sun honored
I've found the best way to get these is to go tailoring/enchanting then make arcanoweave bracers not many mats and 100% disenchant into large prismatic shards. I make tons of $ with this
where do u learn the spell to turn 3 smalls into a large?
anyone else ever think about shattering a void crystal and selling the shards? I mean, 37g for the crystal, sell the 2 shards at 28g each (on my server). 19g profit. Not bad.
Yea its a daily, but 19g a day is still better then not using this ability at all
What's up with the price? No way 400+ gold per is correct...
