There are also lesser and minor versions of mana and wizard oils. But the brilliant ones are what most raiders will be after.

Nexus Crystals

Nexus Crystals also arrive with Phase 5. They are used for all the new glove and cloak enchants and will initially be in high demand. In Phase 6 they will also be required for Naxx related items.

Nexus Crystals come from disenchanting blue or epic items level 51 or higher:

There is debate about whether epics saved from before Phase 5 will turn into Nexus Crystals or not. Two theories dominate, neither has strong evidence to make it the clear winner.

  1. Epics from after Phase 5’s launch are coded in such a way to allow them to become Nexus Crystals. This means saved epics from pre-Phase 5 will still turn into Large Brilliant Shards. Under this scenario Nexus, Crystals will be more rare and expensive. While Large Brilliant Shards will significantly come down in price, at least short term.
  2. All epics can turn into Nexus Crystals, regardless of creation. Under this scenario Nexus Crystals will be less rare, maybe even plentiful. As guilds have been saving unwanted epics in hope of this situation. Large Brilliant Shard market may be stable, depending on how much players stockpiled. Long term Large Brilliant Shards will go up in price.
