Obliterum is a great money maker throughout all of Legion. Most of us stick to one or two items that we craft and turn into Obliterum (for me it’s Ring Enchants mostly, with a side of Skullblasters). You can buy items directly from the Auction House and turn them into Obliterum however. There are so many items that can be turned into obliterum, and some of them are bound to be mispriced.
Recently I found an amazing spreadsheet for figuring out if you can buy items from the auction house and profitably turn them into Obliterum. It was made by TR4X gaming and you can check out his youtube channel here. The spreadsheet can be found here. It’s dead simple to use you just enter your desired Obliterum price or cost, and then it calculates the maximum price for a ton of different items.
The spreadsheet even contains a TSM string which is amazing as it contains all the items in the game that can be turned into Obliterum with the correct ash amounts.
Setting up and using the TSM group
You can find the TSM import string in the third tab of the spreadsheet. It contains a ton of items however. If you are selling a large number of these items on the auction house already you will have to be careful. I suggest unchecking the move already grouped items box. The other alternative is to just import it and then go through and re-apply the correct auctioning operations. It’s a bit of work, but it should be OK either way.
The TSM string relies on a custom price named obliterum. The purpose of this is to set the percentage of obliterum price you want to set as your max cost. If you set it to 0.95 or 95% then you will break even up to 100% max price. I suggest setting it to 90% or below to ensure an OK profit margin. Otherwise I think it is not worth it.
Obliterating your items
Obliterating is a lot easier with the EasyObliterate Addon. It adds a new obliterum window with all of your available items below the obliterum forge UI. You just click the item you want to obliterate. If you click the auto select check box it will automatically add the next obliterable item, and you can just press obliterate. It’s particularily great when you have crafted gear. You can right click items you do not want to obliterate (potions and flasks you use for raiding for instance).
It also tracks your obliterum gain from all the items you have obliterated. You can see that the ancient Rejuvenation potions have given me an average of 1.5 ash per.
You can find it on curse here.
Obliterum prices have been decreasing so far in 7.3. Eventually they will drag materials down with it or the prices will start rising. Currently there is very little Argus crafted gear available so no one can really use their Primal Obliterum. As crafted gear gets cheaper and more abundant I expect obliterum to come back to a good profit margin. Either way this tool is amazing.
