As far as the essence vs. inferno ruby calculation goes, don't carnelian spikes make 2-3 essences per DE? I was confused by your 90g essence/ 130g ruby comparison... you never get a single essence from your investment of 3 carnelians.

You get 1.875 Greater Celestial Essence per Carnelian Spike. You have 75% chance for Greater Celestial Essence, and when you get the essence, it is either 2 or 3 pieces. I am pretty sure that it is 50% chance for either.0.75 * (0.5 * 2 + 0.5 *3) = 1.875You have 25% chance to get dust. According to wowhead you have an equal chance to get 2, 3, 4 or 5 dusts. That's 3.5 on average. 0.25 * (0.25 * 2 + 0.25 * 3 + 0.25 *4 + 0.25 * 5) = 0.875So on average a Carnelian Spike disenchants into 1.875 Greater Celestial Essence and 0.875 Hypnotic Dust, plus whatever dust you get extra from the guild perk. Thus if essence is 90 g and Inferno Ruby is 130, you should craft Carnelian Spikes and disenchant them, because this will give you more money (if you can sell your stuff.)
