What I am doing now

You are most likely here because you enjoy crafting. I have been reading up on some of the WoW issues regarding gold making, which make me realize that WoW is not the game for me.

If you want to play a game where gathering and crafting is the cornerstone of the economy, and are not faint of heart, I recommend EVE Online. EVE even has releases purely to support industry. You can play for free if you are good enough manufacturer or trader.

Be the builder in a villainous world.

1500 Twilight Jasmine milled

TL:DR 0.5 Burning Embers/5 Twilight Jasmine; 3 Ashen pigment/5 Twilight Jasmine - just like auctioneer said.

I milled these herbs in a controlled manner because (a) some were interested , and (b) another guildy though the numbers seemed higher.  I also want to know what my costs are.

I stockpiled 1500 Twilight Jasmine (had to grab some off the horde AH), and milled them, with the results on my milling spreadsheet.  This is very similar to what I did with cinderbloom.  Results are what Auctioneer suggested.
  • 164 burning embers becoming 82 inferno inks
  • 916 ashen pigment becoming 458 blackfallow inks 
 This gives 0.548 burning embers/ 5 herbs (vs an expected 0.5), and 3.05 Ashen pigment/5 herbs (vs an expected 3.0)


  1. Question Foo
    By the way thank you for the two post on milling. Do you know of a way I can do something like this but with ore? Thanks for your dedication Big Fan

  2. @anonymous

    Pick the ore you want to prospect (obsidium ore or elementium ore), buy lots.

    Use your jewelcrafter (or hire one), empty your bags of most things (apart from the ore) and set up a macro:
    /cast prospecting
    /use obsidium ore

    /cast prospecting
    /use elementium ore

    You can then bind this macro to a hotkey or button press.
