Phat Lewts' Phat Lewts (get it!?) Day 19 of 20

This is for Day 19 of Nev's 20 Days of Goldmaking.  Interested in reading other's views on the topics?  Nev made a post with all the participants here.  Check it out, there's some really great posts!  Todays topic:

Have you bought yourself anything really expensive as a reward for earning all that gold? Or do you have a self-present in mind for when you reach your goal?

Black Market Auction House
As mentioned before on my blog, I recently purchased Invincible's Reins off the BMAH for 750,000 gold, which was a pretty decent price IMO.  Since then I've been focusing on making gold and not wasting it!  I have no other immediate plans to purchase a mount or vanity item, but I do check the BMAH daily.  I don't want to dump all my gold, but I have spent about 850-900k gold on the BMAH already.  We'll see what pops up!

My goals right now are really focusing recouping the gold back from that purchase, and then finally hitting the 2 million mark.  From there? 4 million!  Then we'll see what happens.  How do you spoil yourself with your piles (or lack thereof) of gold?

  1. Biggest purchase was a Spectral tiger a few years ago for 650k. Have bought many mounts both for myself and for my sons. Mounts really are the only big thing I spend gold on. Presently have 4 million with goal being 10million. Currently mop is not living up to my gold expectations the same way the previous expansion did. I do think a shrinking player base on my server is one of the main reasons.

    1. Yeah, I feel that shrinking player base situation, my server was mid/high in Wrath with tons of active raiding guilds, now it's low pop and no guild progression to speak of.

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!
