Phat Glyphs Part 2

In my post about 10 days ago, Phat Glyphs?, I went over my not so smooth entrance into the glyph market.  Today's post is going to be based off of that original post, so I suggest reading it as a preface if you haven't already.

Trying to get into the glyph market was a new and daunting task.  I had TSM all set up, but it takes time and coordination to get everything crafted.  I started off posting from a level 1 posting alt, BIG MISTAKE.  I know some like it, but it's not for me.  I don't have a LW and there were no inscription bags on the AH so instead of trying to get someone to craft them for me I just got 20 slot bags.  My personal opinion is that if you're going to post glyphs, you should get scribe bags.  There are 2 ideal scribe bags, a 32 slot, and a 36 slot.  So I decided to post all my glyphs from my scribe alt who wasn't my main posting toon.  This worked a lot better for me.

I now had the option to craft glyphs as I saw fit, and do all my glyph related activities from the one character, instead of switching around.  This really streamlined the process for me and I highly recommend it.  For some background my alt that has inscription is level 82 and will probably never see 85.  I don't really "play" this alt, just use him to craft glyphs, so the only thing in his bags other than inscription materials is a hearthstone.  This kind of situation makes my alt ideal to post from, and if it's your main, it probably won't be.

Patience, Patience, Patience.
The glyph market is a novel thing, especially when compared to other WoW markets.  The "AFK Time" in glyph making is substantial and I find myself coming back to WoW too early, as pigments take quite a bit of time to turn to inks.  Contrary to my initial beliefs though, the glyph market on my server is a viable way to make gold.  If you are a JC or Alchemist, it's going to be a culture shock, but IMO it's worth it.  Contrary to my initial post I normally make 2-3k per day with inscription, posting at most 2-3 times per day, and restocking once per week.

More Info:
While I was getting into the glyph making market, Croda's Inscription Gold Guide was an invaluable resource.  If you really want to get to know the glyph market inside and out, this is an essential read.  It's long, but really worth it and filled with invaluable information.  A must read for any aspiring scribe!

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!
