I'm now looking to Tailoring as a source. I'm going to assume that Spiritmend items are the ideal things to DE for the dusts but I can't find a reliable source of what works out the best dust per item. The item requirements are:
Spiritmend Boots/Belt/Gloves/Leggings (4 bolts/2 thread)
Spiritmend Robe (6 bolts/2 thread)
Wowhead says 1-4 with a 74% drop rate on the boots and robe (Same 1-4 for the others, but with a 73% rate) so I assume Boots are the way to go, I'd just like to know if anyone has anecdotal evidence of the best items. I'm swimming in essence/shards/bolts at the moment, just need the dust!
Thanks in advance.
or just sell essences and buy dust with the money...
If you're going to craft greens, I would start by crafting Deathsilk belt. It gives 1-3 dusts but takes half the embersilk the Spiritmend boots take so, it's probably better (if you can, make 10 of each and see for yourself).
The generic rule in crafting professions is don't farm what you need, farm what's most profitable, sell it and buy what you need (and pay attention to what you're crafting, leveling enchanting can be very profitable if you avoid the patterns that sell for a loss and make the ones that sell.

Yes, I need to do more research on these. I've been following the guide on wow-professions, but a lot of the vellums either don't sell or sell at a loss as you say. I had hoped that the +40 OH Intellect enchant would be a good seller, but it's not looking all that promising at the moment.
I think we're a fairly quiet realm so options are limited.
