The Fall of Carnelian Spikes

As previously stated, Carnelian Spikes would usually Disenchant to Greater Celestial Essence x2, sometimes x3, and rarely Hypnotic Dust x4.  This was a great investment, considering Carnelians go for around 20g each.  60g + 3.60g for the Jeweler Settings at Exalted yields a total of 63.60g, and Greater Celestial Essences sell for somewhere around 60g.  Instant 100% profit.

It's not hard to see why the Disenchanting rates were nerfed, if you will, but it's unfortunate that Jewelcrafters and Enchanters no longer have this cash-cow.  Upon disenchanting 14 of them last night, I received 9 Greater Celestial Essences, and 30 Hypnotic Dust.  This still made the crafting and disenchanting profitable, but worth my time?  It's borderline, but I don't think I'll be buying any more.

On a side note, Reputation grinding is terrible.

Cliffs aren't really necessary here, but:
-Carnelian Spike Disenchanting has been nerfed
-Usually get 4-5 Hypnotic Dust per Disenchant

  1. I had forgotten about this post. Carnelian Spikes HAVEN'T fallen, the RNG just absolutely hated me that day. Haven't had a bad day since.
