How to make Hypnotic Dust
Unless you have loads of honor/justice points and have nothing better to do with them, there is only one way to obtain Hypnotic Dust: Disenchanting.
All Cataclysm non-weapon greenies will usually disenchant into Hypnotic Dust, so there's only the choice of what to DE. Choose the best option below! There's many more professions out there, but I'll list only the ones I've used.
Making Hypnotic Dust with Jewelcrafting
This is one of the oldest JC tricks, but it's still very profitable. Simply purchase as much Obsidium or Elementium Ore from the auction house and prospect them. Do not cut the green gems you get, but instead turn them into accessories, such as rings. All of these will DE into Hypnotic Dust. This is time consuming, but profitable and requires no hard work.
Making Hypnotic Dust with Tailoring
|This NPC should be your last resort!|
The point is to buy Embersilk Cloth and create Deathsilk Bracers. Each DE's into 1-8 Hypnotic Dust and sometimes Celestial Essences. Note that the bracers sell for even 300g each on some realms, so keep at least one for sale if this is the case.
Making Hypnotic Dust at the Auction House
This is the best way after Jewelcrafting, and most interesting. Simply search for green quality level 80-85 items at the auction house, and sort them by price. Some lvl 77 items are also Cataclysm items, but they often cost 50x more than the dust you can get from them.
When you see some items with a reasonable price, see if 4 Hypnotic Dust is worth more than the item. 4 is the average amount of dusts you can get from one greenie.
Alternatively you can check the dust prices during peak hours (18:00-22:00) and see if there's lots of undercutting going on. There's usually even 400% price difference, so it's not just faster, but also profitable if there's lots of dust available.
