Void Shatter - One Void Crystal into Large Prismatic Shards.

With the release of Patch 2.4 and Sunwell Isle we saw the release of a new enchanting spell, namely Formula: Void Shatter. The formula for Void Shatter can be picked up on Sunwell Isle and trained at 360, however you also need a Runed Eternium Rod. These babies need 370 enchanting and can cost between 500g to 600g to make, good job Blizzard.

Void Shatter simply turns one void crystal into two Large Prismatic Shards. It has a 24 hour cooldown to prevent the market getting flooded, but it has started to affect the price of both items ingame. Large Prismatics are getting cheaper and void crystals getting mroe expensive. This is kind of a shame since Large prismatics were a great source of income from heroics for me, boosting each heroic run to an easy 70g profit.

I believe the reason Blizzard released this was two fold.

First to balance out the cost of the two items. Large prismatics and void crystals have become massively disproportioned on most servers with Void Crystals selling at upto half the price of Large Prismatic Shards on some servers.

The second reason is most likely the upcoming release of the Wrath of the Lich King Expansion. As with most things they are making items easier to get so that people can be more prepared for the expansion. This has happened to Epic gear with welfare epics, now be prepared for welfare enchants!

Wether this is a good change or not is debatable. I however am in favour of it, I believe enchants currently cost an insane amount, much more than they should do compared to other things. Getting a slight upgrade via an enchant can cost easily double that of a gear upgrade, im not sure why this is!
