Phat's Weekly Review: 4/9

This week has been an odd one.  I invested a lot this week, and for the first time in 2 months I've made less than 50k in a week, coming in at +27k overall this week.

Heavy Investing
This week I invested.  A lot.

As you can see, this week I have over 80k invested.  I sank about 20k into the Springstrider mounts, which I think I will start posting around June, when players come back who don't normally play during the school year.  I figure I might as well invest my gold in some long term prospects, rather than having it sit in my pockets doing nothing for me!

I also bought over 200 Golden Lotus this week because Transmuting the rare gems was cheaper than prospecting them from the ore, and I really needed to restock.  I also purchased a ton of Black and White Trillium Ore because it was well below market average for my server.  Quite frankly, I'd rather have my entire 2 million tied up in things making money than have the 2 million liquid, but it's pretty hard to do, as there are only so many auctions on my small server, and only so many hours in a day!

Alliance Updates
Just figured since I have not much this week I'll update you on the progress of my Alliance alt.  In my post "So That's Competition?" I wrote about someone disgruntled with my transmog pricing who vouched to become my competition, only to not quite fully understand what I was doing.  Well I must say they have stepped up their game since then.  Definitely did a few google searches, and most definitely using TSM to do searches, although I don't think they're using my lists (but oh how I would appreciate the irony).  They're buying more transmog gear, and I've come to find out they're actually the Alliance version of me, dabbling in multiple markets across the server.   I still have quite an edge on them as far as inventory, and they're not posting below my lower threshold, so we'll see what happens.

That's about all for my weekly review, if you made more gold than I did this week, be sure to rub it in my face in the comments to motivate me for next week!

  1. Check out Kyparite for prospecting, prices are falling as low as 1g each on my realm

  2. Grats on Invincible's Reins, also I did make more money than you this last week :P (39k up from last week for me) even after spending an extra 15k that was completely unnecessary.

    1. Hopefully I can chalk up a lot more next week!

  3. You seem wicked Phat. How about helping me getting into the whole "play" AH phenomenon? Gizmo#2346 eu :-)


    Made all my riches in last weeks since 5.2. I started 5.2 with horded materials and 100k.

    Some inspiration from your blog, TY.

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!
