Welcome to the best way I know of to make gold in with disenchanting in WoW! After a few weeks of working on it on the side and a few days of actually banging my head against Excel, "tah dah," here it is. I hope it's a useful tool for you in your goldmaking. So, what is the Goldifier?
In short, it answers the question "Will D/Eing this item be profitable?" It does so in two different ways. The first tab is the Easy-Peasy Disenchanting Goldifier, which walks you through mat prices and item characteristics, and then calculates the maximum you should pay for that disenchantable item. If you're looking at many different ilvl pieces at the same time, are a math geek, or just prefer reading tables, the Armor and Weapon tabs show the full pricing breakdown by ilvl. So what are you waiting for?! Go to the Auction house right now, sort ilvl 364 and above armor/weapons by price and lets make some freakin gold!

Why I did this project:
"Reck, I have 3 addons that do this, total waste of time, yo!"
There are addons like Enchantrix that do a great job of telling you how much dust or essence you'll get when disenchanting a particular ilvl item, and they're very accurate (I've checked). However, they don't take into account current prices, which is a huge problem. While some websites and other addons can be set up to do so, even among those there isn't a single one that I've found that accounts for the Bountiful Bags perk (when you DE something it proc's at Proc=sum(1,5)[n(x)^n] where x is between 12 and 13. but if you want to just be lazy you can say it equals 17% or 18% more than normal. From what I understand, we know pretty accurately what the proc equals, and how the proc operates, but the exact numbers are of course Blizzard's. Leaving out the Bountiful Bags perk is something that greatly affects what you would be willing to pay for an item. Since it increases the price cap, it doesn't hurt anything, it just leaves out potential profit. The net net, I wanted to make something that wouldn't lose me money, but would give me an accurate edge over people who were just looking at Enchantrix.
1. Jim from PowerWord:Gold did a video a while back on having materials automatically sync from The Undermine Journal. That would take our step one. And it would be neat to just have people pick their realm and have prices import. That's beyond my Excel abilities at the moment but I'm working on it.
2. The Armor and Weapon tabs aren't pretty enough for me. I'm a perfectionist, but I'm apparently not a graphic designer
3. Expand from just MoP to old expansion disenchanting as well. Oh boy. Recommendation courtesy Goblin Raset, the Drunken Mogul.
Thanks for reading and using this, I sincerely hope that it's helpful. I'm not sure what I'll be doing next, I might expand on a D/E guide, like my Blacksmithing Guide or I might go into Trade Skill Master 2.0 since I'm starting to get the hang of it since my giddy little introductory post on that.
9/13 Heroic Durumu is dead after two weeks of work! Warriors are not good here, or at least, I am not good here. And for some reason this is our official guild screenshot. On our kill, our raid leader died, and got rezzed into the knockback. Noob. :P Grats to everyone for their hard work on this guy though! On to Twins! Then we can just pretend Dark Animus, and Lei Shen don't exist and call it a full clear. Hazaa!
P.S. We also killed Twin Consorts. So we're technically 10/13. But we two-shot them, so it's hardly even worth mentioning. :P
