Gold Capped: Juggling the Volatiles market in Cataclysm


Every week, WoW Insider brings you Gold Capped, in which Basil "Euripides" Berntsen aims to show you how to make money on the auction house, and Insider Trader, which is all about professions. For Gold Capped's inside line on crafting for disenchanting, transmutation, cross-faction arbitrage and more, check in here every Thursday, and email Basil with your comments, questions or hate mail! This week's gold blogosphere post is BigJimm's post about profiting off the world events.

The new elemental crafting materials are called Volatiles. Volatile Earth, Volatile Air, Volatile Water, Volatile Life, and Volatile Fire are going to be by-products of herbalism, mining, and killing certain mobs. While they're technically farmable (unlike ore, skins, and herbs), the only way to farm Volatiles is to camp things that drop them or to collect them as by-products of mining or herbalism.

Let's look at the sources for each type of Volatile. Bear in mind that this is just beta information and thus is completely subject to change (as well as probably a little unreliable because of the small sample numbers).
  • Elementium Vein will contain Water, Earth, Fire, and Air Volatiles.
  • Pyrite Deposits will contain Fire and Air Volatiles.
  • Obsidium Deposits will contain Air and Earth Volatiles.
  • Herb nodes will all drop Volatile Life.
  • There are a variety of elemental mobs that drop all the Volatiles, the most farmable of which are in Twilight Highlands.
