Auctionating

As featured in Kuja's Gold Mine

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.

AH Button

This will bring up a window that looks like this, searching for all the individual mats of Icy Prism:


Step 2
*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.

Step 3

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!

Cheers,

Phat's Ultimate WoW Gold Making Macro Guide

This guide is going to be extensive so buckle up. Macros are a great way to make your gold making more efficient, and this is going to be a guide to both create your own basic macros, followed by a compendium of macros that I use myself for gold making.

Creating a Basic Button Clicking Macro
Playing WoW, particularly using TSM, one clicks a lot of buttons to be as productive as we are. I'm not going to cover every button, but I'm going to go over how to find and macro any clickable button. The first thing we're going to utilize is WoW's built in Frame Stack. This tells us all the frames our cursor is currently hovered over, and we can find Button names from the list to make macros for them. Here's an example.

Type /fstack and you will get a window that looks like this:




Right now I'm hovered over the TSMAuctioningPostButton, which I've just learned the name of! If I wanted to create a macro to click this button, I would just have to add a /click before the b…

TradeSkillMaster Sniper Tutorial

If you haven't already, there are only 2 Days Leftto participate in my Yearly Review Survey to provide feedback that will go towards improving the blog in 2014!

Yesterday, the TSM team released a slew of updates for TradeSkillMaster, and among them was a new feature for the TradeSkillMaster_Shopping Module called Sniper. What the addon does is searches for recently posted items that meet a set of rules that you set up, and allow you to snag them before anyone else does. Before I release my video publicly, I'm posting the link on my blog for my readers as a sort of early release! Enjoy!
