In my recent post, Flipping Twink Gear, I advocated the use of the addon Auctionator to search for level 77 Twink gear to flip on the AH. This is only the tip of the iceberg as far as the usefulness of this addon goes. Used correctly, Auctionator can easily do things that no other addon can!
Searching for Craft Items
As a WoW player you probably have a crafter that has needed to gather materials to craft an item. Auctionator includes a functionality that lets you search for the items needed to craft a certain item, as well as the item itself, to compare the costs of crafting and easily buy. How to do this is listed below.
While having the Auction house window open, find the item you're interested in crafting in your profession window. For me it's Icy Prism. In the craft window click the [AH] button.
This will bring up a window that looks like this, searching for all the individual mats of Icy Prism:
*Note: For those of you who don't know, Icy Prism is not something you can buy on the AH.
Here you have the option to Save this Shopping List, if you don't want to have to click the AH button every time you do this search. I wouldn't buy at these prices, but if you chose to you can click on each item and individually buy as many or as few as you want, as shown below.
Once you're done Buying as many as you need you can hit the Back button to return to the page with all the separate addons. The sky is the limit for this one, there are many creative ways to make shopping lists and Auctionator is a great addon to use for all your bulk purchasing. It's a great supplement to TSM!
