Why You Should be Stockpiling Obliterum Now for World of Warcraft Legion Patch 7.1.5

Obliterum is now super cheap on many realms and now is not the ideal time to sell it. If you want to make gold out of it, I recommend to stockpile it and wait until Patch 7.1.5 goes live. Why?

There are many reasons why the prices of Obliterum will be rising.
  • In Patch 7.1.5, we will be able to increase a crafted item's level up to 865 (the item level cap was increased to 855 in Patch 7.1).
  • Patch 7.1.5 brings a new Artifact Knowledge catch-up that will encourage people to level up their alts.
  • This results to more demand as most players will want to quickly gear their alts and what's better than crafted items upgraded using Obliterum?
How to Get Obliterum?

Destroying most of the crafted Legion gear will yield Obliterum Ash. We've got some neat guides that talk about Obliterum taking various professions into account.
  • Obliterating Ancient Healing Potions - the slowest but one of the most profitable and easiest methods.
  • Obliterating Enchants - the huge price decrease of enchants allows their profitable destruction.
  • Obliterating Amulets - a complementary method revolving around prices of crafted JWC amulets being lower than the usual price of Obliterum. Buying and destroying Infernal Alchemist Stone is also worth noting here.

Tips
  • Allocate your investment (the more gold you invest, the higher your profit).
  • Check your Auction House regularly for cheap amulets that are below the price of Obliterum. Destroy them and slowly build up the amount of Obliterum you will have available with 7.1.5.
  • If you've got Alchemy, try to find a supplier or check the Auction House for cheap Yseralline SeedYseralline Seeds.
The Future of Obliterum

Blizzard mentioned during BlizzCon they want crafted gear to stay relevant throughout Legion and they achieve this by increasing the amount of times you can upgrade crafted gear using Obliterum with every patch. I suppose the same will happen in Patch 7.2. What do you think?
