Enchants definitely had an effect on gear scores in WotLK. In general, the higher the quality of the enchant, the greater the impact on gear score. For example, a +25 Agility enchant would have a much bigger impact on gear score than a +5 Agility enchant. The main exception to this rule is for weapon enchants, which generally have a bigger impact on gear score regardless of quality.

Enchants also had a bigger impact on gear score in WotLK than they do in Legion. This is because, in Legion, gear score is primarily determined by item level, with enchants and other factors having a much smaller impact. In WotLK, however, enchants could have a significant impact on gear score, particularly for high-end gear.

One of the most significant changes to enchants in WotLK was the addition of the Glorious Stats enchant. This enchant could be applied to any piece of gear, and added a substantial amount of all primary stats ( Strength, Agility, Stamina, Intellect, and Spirit) to the item. This enchant was particularly popular on high-end gear, as it could drastically increase the gear's gear score.

Unfortunately, the Glorious Stats enchant was removed in Cataclysm. This was a great loss for the WotLK community, as the enchant was a big part of the game's gear score system.
