In today's video, we'll look at how to make gold with disenchanting in World of Warcraft.
Method #1: 0:15
You can download tradeskillmaster at http://tradeskillmaster.com or on curse. The desktop app, which allows you to automatically have the server data available without scanning the auction house, is only available through their website.
I primarily use this method to restock my miscellaneous enchanting dust on a weekly basis, although you could just flip it or use it to build up a nest egg on a new server. It would also be very useful if you were building up materials for selling profession packs.

Google Docs Spreadsheet to figure prices for your realm: http://bit.ly/1B1tdfL
Props to Robert Jager for helping me figure out this one. You can disenchant any rare armor that is craftable from when you first learn Draenor professions. However, the ilvl 585 armor pieces disenchant into more Luminous Shards and Draenic Dust than the 540 or 550 ilvl pieces. I didn't put it in the video but you can also craft Tarot cards from Enchanting. Explore your professions and see what you can make.
With the spreadsheet, this was interesting for me. It actually explains a little more in depth what we talked about last video where the amount of ore sold across each server had increased 5-10x. Sure factions and servers had merged but this also helps explain that increase in demand. If not only Jewelcrafting is buying ore for disenchanting arbitrage, but now blacksmiths are too, then we can expect a large increase in the quantity of blackrock ore and true iron ore demanded.
The White Bandit Masks are an absolute staple in the enchanting world. Learn them. Love them. Praise them. Cuddle them. Or hell, disenchant them and sell what they give you. That's probably a better idea. This is an old technique. Oh, on that note. This was recently popularized again by Sterling's "How to Make Gold with Enchanting" post in the consortium. In that post, Sterling mentioned buying and disenchanting Furbolg Medicine Totem from a vendor in Felwood. Those aren't viable at the moment but keep an eye out on your server. It's one of the simplest methods when it works.
A while back I spent a month creating a web app that would automatically tell you the max price you should pay for any item you plan on disenchanting based on its ilvl and a few other options like guild perks, etc. I didn't put that in the list because its usefulness pales in comparison to WoW-GPS.net. For real. Use the heck out of this site.
Not gonna blab about JC shuffles because that's something that I'll just end up talking forever about. One thing I'll say. I only had one toon, Reckles, until I made a second toon specifically to make gold from the Cata shuffle I describe here. :)
Oh! Also, remember that you can use alchemy to make shadowspirit diamonds out of 3 of each of the uncommon gems. A good rule of thumb is to transmute if the cut shadowspirit diamonds are selling for more than 60g. Otherwise you're better off disenchanting.
Last thing, lol. Remember to check Elementium ore, Obsidium ore, and Pyrite ore, when you're searching the Auction House. Pyrite and Obsidium isn't used for much so there's usually a decent supply built up. Good luck!
