I took some time to collect and observe how the cost of enchanting level 70 legendaries works and would like to share with everyone to see what they think about it. Maybe even establish some facts around this idea.
Thank you, this is very interesting! I was actually thinking about doing this since the early days of beta, but never got around to do it (and kind of didn't feel like wasting the materials for that). I'm glad you had the guts to do this! Awesome!
I've got a question though - in your blog you talk about decreasing material cost for the latter enchants... what do you mean by that? Don't they always stay the same? (It'd be awesome btw if you could, next to each column, put the blue/rare/whatever material cost, just to complete it).
Thanks Bagstone; I hope to continue to fill this spreadsheet out for completeness as I can. The enchanting materials actually go down by one every 10 enchants so instead of 8 veiled crystals it is 7 and so forth. I do not know if they actually go all the way down to one. It was just something that I observed.
I have also fixed some of the numbers in my spreadsheet to include shoulders as well as correct some of the costs for belt and pants as I apparently got some stuff crossed when i copied my spreadsheet into Google Docs.
