Everyone thought I was crazy when I sold all the enchanting mats I got the first week. 100g a Dust? Yes please. 150 per essence? Don't mind if I do. 500g per shard? Why of COURSE! They leveled their enchanting.Now, I have over 25k gold from a week's worth of mats, and all the mats have bottomed out. 10g dust, 50g essences, and 100g shards. I could buy the mats back up and level my enchanting while still making a profit. Of course, I won't, at least not any further than the 500 so I can de dungeon blues when I queue. I am still selling until the prices stop spiking. I like to wait for Saturday afternoon, when the price spikes on our server and list then.If you want to make money, crafting professions can wait a smidge. It really doesn't help either that the AH is flooded with all those enchanted scrolls so they are practically worthless now.

Keep selling those dusts, essences, and shards IMO.WOTLK dust is around 1g, essence around 15g, and shards are like 2g tops. I expect once people get geared up enough to farm heroics like crazy, you will see cata dust, and essence similar levels, probably within 6 months, maybe earlier. Shards won't be that low for a long time, but will be about what essences go for. Once no one needs all that blue gear, it's gonna be sharded. Oftentimes the vendor price of the item was higher than the shard price on the AH, and I expect that to happen in cata, especially with blue-quality weapons, which vendor for 30g and up.Remember ESPECIALLY with enchanting mats, that there is that DE option with your need/greed/pass/DE roll. You're definitely going to see enchanting mats drop through the floor, likely before the raw mats of any other profession out there.

Yeah, this is what I've been doing too. Averaging 10k a day since cata launch, mostly through selling enchanting mats but also leather, herbs, and ore. Made a ton of gold from herbs and ore in the first couple of days before they nerfed the nodes.I only levelled enchanting to 475 so that I could DE higher level greens.Levelled JC to 475 so I could start doing the dailies, then after 3 days you have a blue gem pattern that will take you to 500+ with good profit, instead of losing 1000's of gold making those useless nightstone necklaces.Apart from that there just doesn't seem to be much point in paying stupid amounts of gold to max out my professions at the moment, I can't see how that would make me more gold than just selling the raw mats.
