» What you should do: Long Answer
For easy reference, here are the current crafting and disenchant rates. Remember, you only get dust back for the max playable copies of a card and golden copies are counted first. Also, when you dust the cards, you dust for the normal rate, not the full amount, after rotation.
1. If max playable copies are golden, do nothing.
This is pretty self-explanatory. If all your max playable cards are golden, there is nothing else for you to do. You get your maximum dust at rotation.
EXAMPLE 1: I have 2x golden Auchenai Soulpriest. I do nothing. I get 1,600 dust (800+800) on rotation.
2. If you are missing a playable copy, craft golden of the highest rarity you can.
Whether you want a golden card, or the maximum dust, both can be achieved by crafting golden when missing max playable copies. As you can see with the return rates, it’s the best use of your dust to craft the highest rarity golden and then move down the chart. If you don’t have enough dust to craft everything, just figure out how to maximize what you do have.
EXAMPLE 2: I have 1x regular Auchenai Soulpriest. Since the max playable copies for Rares are 2, and I have 1x regular copy, I craft 1x golden Auchenai Soulpriest. I get 900 dust on rotation (100+800)
3a. If you only have a non-golden playable copy, decide..if you want to upgrade to a golden copy, craft golden.
You can also use the Hall of Fame dust to “upgrade” to Golden. You get less dust overall but you get a golden copy, instead of a regular copy. You can then go back and dust the regular copies for a bit more dust.
Example 3: I have 2 regular copies of Auchenai Soulpriest. But I want them golden. So I craft 2x copies of golden Auchenai Soulpriest (-1,600 dust). I now have 2x regular Auchenai Soulpriest and 2x golden Auchenai Soulpriest. Because I only get dust for max playable copies, and golden copies are counted first, I get 1,600 dust back on rotation for my golden copies (800+800). Now I can dust the two regular copies and get 40 dust back along with my now golden Auchenai Soulpriest. (20+20)
3b. If you only have a non-golden playable copy, decide…If you want the most dust, do nothing, except for COMMON cards, always craft golden.
If you want the most dust, and already have a playable copy of the card, it’s best to do nothing. By crafting golden, and dusting golden, you come out the same amount as if you had just held your regular copy. However, Common cards are an exception where you make a slight profit crafting golden because the craft/dust rates are weirdly set.
Example 4: I have 2 regular copies of Auchenai Soulpriest and want the most dust. If I do nothing I get 200 dust (100+100). If I craft 2 golden copies of Auchenai Soulpriest I spend 1,600 dust (800+800) and get 1,600 dust back on rotation (800+800). Now I go ahead and disenchant them for 200 (100+100). I’m left with 2x regular copies and 200 dust. The exact same as if I did nothing. (this is true for all Rare, Epic, and Legendary cards)
Example 5: (Common Card Exception) If you look at Example 4, you’ll find upgrading to golden copies won’t net you more dust for Rare, Epic, or Legendary Cards but Commons are different. If you have 2x regular Spellbreaker you would get 80 dust on rotation (40+40). However, if you craft 2x golden Spellbreaker for 800 (400+400) you get 800 back (400+400) on rotation. Now if you dust those Golden cards, you end up with 2x regular copies of Spellbreaker and 100 dust (50+50). If we did nothing we would have gotten 80. So we made 20 dust, or 10 dust per Common card, by doing this (10+10).
