Players with the learned weapon illusion appearances can change the look of their weapon enchant look at a transmogrification NPC.

You will need:
- Remnant of Fire from Ragnaros in Firelands
- Remnant of Air from Al’kir in Throne of the Four Winds
- Remnant of Water from Neptulon in Throne of the Tides
- and revered with Therazane.
Tome of Illusion Prices range from 75,000g EACH down to 1,500g. Still an awesome profit.

How to get Tome of Illusion materials
Once you have learned the Tomes, the materials can be found using farming best practices across Azeroth:
Disenchanting soulbound weapons and armor that you have now learned and
To check if your items are learned, use the addon “Can I Mog It” downloadable from Curse
Search for items on the Auction House that can be disenchanted into shards and crystals for cheaper than materials cost. Use the Trade Skill Master shopping tab “crafting” option. Sort by target price per item.
Look through all your banks and reagent banks.
For Draenor gems, don’t forget that you can prospect white and black trillium. If you have an alchemist with transmute spec, it can be a good idea to prospect ghost iron ore instead, and send the small gems to your alchemist to transmute with golden lotus.
Sha crystals can be extremely pricely.
The prices of Sha Crystals increases as the supply dries up.

For Sha Crystals, head to Timeless Isle and farm the rares there for armor tokens. Convert these tokens to armor, and disenchant.
Use a server hop / cross realm addon to jump from server to server to get to the rares quicker and save you having to wait on respawns.
Other rare materials you might need, such as Essence of Water, it’s a good idea to search for the item on WoWhead, and check whether the item is easily farmable, or whether your time is best spent on farming something else to pay for the purchase of materials in the Auction House.
