Give Your Competitors the Rod!!

Don't forget to follow me on twitter @PhatLewtsGold.

One of my favorite methods of making gold is reselling vendor items.  This post isn't about what vendor items you should sell, you probably have heard of all of these.  It's of a brand new way of acquiring these patterns in Cataclysm that most people haven't yet realized.

Captain Samir
Captain Samir has many patterns in his inventory that were once "Limited Supply" items pre-Cata.  He is found in Kelp'thar Forest, and is really easy to get to if you have done a bit of questing in Vashj'ir.  He has patterns that some completionists may be hunting for but the big scores are Plans: Adamantite Rod and Plans: Eternium Rod.  These are the only two blacksmithing rods that blacksmiths can't make without the plans, and they were previously bought in limited supply.  Now you can stock up and fill your bank with these for future postings!  I suggest posting 1-2 at a time, so people don't go googling them!  

These patterns are great because both rods are required by enchanters, and when leveling enchanters spam trade looking for a rod and a BS realizes he doesn't have the recipe, the first thing he'll do is check the AH.  Price appropriately and you'll have a nice flow of income from these things.  As an added bonus you can craft them on your BS and mark up the prices because they're hard to come by!

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!
