Learn TSM 3 Series only 5 Months in the Making!

So I finally managed to finish my TSM 3 series, publishing the final video today, Part 4 - Shopping. You can check out the video here. Moving forward I want to focus on more advanced strategies, especially going into Legion. I've been playing with some different ideas, but my main goal in this is to find one that I'm going to stick to and can commit a regular schedule to. This weekend will be an indicator of how far I can get with that, I'm going to spend a good amount of time creating some content, and trying some new things out, and I hope you will all check them out and find them interesting/helpful, and provide some honest feedback if you think it's trash! :-)

Cheers,

Transmog List Update May 6, 2016

Hey all,

I've gone through and taken the time to reevaluate my list, and it's posted at the normal link as seen above. Some time in the near future I will start releasing the import as an import with operations, as having the operations included would be advantageous to new users, but until we hit the point where I set aside the time to make a new video, you'll just have to wait!

Cheers,

Launch of Phat's Hate Mail Repository

Hi everyone,

Exciting news today. I finally put together a plan I have had in mind for a long while, to create a spot on my blog to feature gold making related hate mail.


I've been the recipient of quite a few crass hate mails over the years, and I've saved some of the more touching ones in my bank alt's guild bank. That being said, once a week (or perhaps once every 2 weeks depending on submissions), I'm going to be featuring hate mail sent to me, sometimes along with a back story (if one is included). If you're interested in sending in your own hate mail, please use this template form with instructions to do so.

Without further ado, below is some of my own hate mail that I've received over the years to kick it off. Not much backstory on these, just people raging at my AH Alt that I use to post transmog (dat beautiful orc above). I keep these saved in my Alt's guild bank to look back on for inspiration.





Hate mail is going to be compiled on this page (in toolbar above), with links back to the original posts, if you want to read more on the backstory. As this is a new project for me, please leave any feedback you have for the process in the comments below, or via social media.

Cheers,
Phat Lewts

Pay Attention to What You're Buying!

Recently I added a vendor subgroup to my TSM Transmog List, because there were quite a few items on my transmog list that happened to be vendor items, that people were unaware of based off my list alone. As I was shopping later that week, I came across an item, Glorious Shoulders for 600g. At first I clearly recognized this item as the shoulders for Glorious Transmog Set, a very sought after "platekini" set for transmog. Seeing it for 600g I thought, what a deal! These pieces sell in the 10's of thousands, and these shoulders were only 600g!

Of course, I moused over the item to see it's DB Global Market value before purchasing, and I noticed something odd. The market value was 5k and it was in my Vendor group. Of course my first thought was "you can buy pieces from the Glorious set from a vendor!?"

I took to Wowhead, and if you were sleuthy enough to click my Glorious Shoulders link above, you'd know that the linked shoulders are nothing but!


Nothing Glorious about these Shoulders...except maybe the name!
