Goooooooaaaaaaaaaalls!!! (Day 2)

Today I'm continuing with Nev's WoW Goldmaking Challenge, to see all my posts for this, click here. Today we answer the question

"If you set yourself a goal, what was your goal & at what point did you set it?"

Admirable Goals
In general I don't set goals for the distant future ie. "gain 1 million gold by April 23rd".  For me that's too far out to concentrate on, and it means I can slack right now, assuming I can pick up the slack later (I'm a procrastinator).  So what I do is set weekly goals.  I try to make them realistic and base them on my play time (if I won't be able to play 2 days in a week, I set it lower than a week I can log in for at least an hour each day).  In general, and for this week for example my goal was 60k gold.  I knew it was the Faire and I'd probably make more than that, but I did not bet on Invincible's Reins coming up on the BMAH.  That being said I'm not going to take that into account as far as me achieving my goals.  If I still earned 60k this week after taking that into account, then I'll have met my goals.

In my opinion there are two types of goals that are the best for achieving gold making results, the first being the type I mentioned, and the second being a goal of time invested in gold making per day.  The more time you put into making gold in WoW, the more gold you'll make, and your gold per hour goes down for every hour per day you play, so a goal of 1 hour per day, or even a half hour per day is a reasonable goal for most people to make gold while enjoying the game and life.

Above all if you're going to set goals, set goals that are reasonable for you to obtain.  Don't go over the top. Push yourself, but don't be unreasonable.  Now the question is on you.  What kind of goals do you set for yourself, or what goals are you currently working on?

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!
