With many new and old players coming back ahead of Mists of Pandaria being released i am picking up lots of cheap recipes that i did not own for my enchanter and jewelcrafter from the Auction House - which have been dumped by these players as they power through content preparing their characters.
There is a very easy way to do this, only takes 20 seconds if you are at the Auction House.
Open the Auction House window:
· tick “Usable Items” on the top bar of the window
· click Recipes and then select the profession you are searching
· the press Search
A list of recipes that you don’t own will appear. (if a very long list appears then it is likely you have not ticked “Usable Items”
I always buy recipes that are priced under 100 gold - though these days i am taking any that look good price given this is a once in a while opportunity as these returning players are here.
the example below shows that my the Auction House has 5 recipes that my enchanter does not have though none are below my 100 gold price.
