Phat's "Weekly" Lewt Review 12/1

I haven't done one of these in a while, but I have a decent amount to touch on that I think you all might find useful, so here it is!

Darkmoon Faire
While I'm sure many of you have given up all together on the trinkets from the DMF I've had some decent success selling them to what I'm assuming is challenge mode or proving ground players, especially the healing trink.  I have a LOT of cards in my guild bank, and with the prices I'm getting herbs from from my suppliers, it can't hurt to try at least one more DMF.  I'm pushing it I think, and it's not advice I'd give to anyone, but I have the gold to give it a try, which means, of course, that I'm going to!

Pets and Mounts
I hadn't written about this since it happened, but about 2 weeks ago I had a spending spree at the BMAH.  May or may not have had a power trip and bid up a (marginally) worthless pet to 9k because one of my major competitors in the AH was after it.  That same day I definitely was at the AH with the intent of purchasing a Rocket Chicken, which I obtained for 52k, which IMO isn't the best or most optimal price, but a good enough deal. I have not yet attempted to sell either pet, mostly for lack of remembering I had purchased them, but once I set up that TSM group, it's on set it and forget it mode, so I'll be coasting.

I could have sworn that I wrote about this next thing on my blog, but I can't find the post for the life of me so maybe I did not.  During Nev's 20 Days, I wrote about an excellent flip I had with TCG mounts.  It seems that given the nature of the post that I did not write about what happened next.  Euphoric over the fast and easy flips, I purchased 2 more TCG mounts from the AH at slightly higher prices, and tried to sell them for 6 months with no success.  I started posting them for cheaper, and they still did not sell, so I stopped posting them after that, in hope that when I got connected realms they'd be easier to sell.  Well if you read my twitter you'll know that that day has not yet come, and isn't even on the drawing board yet, so when I found those TCG mounts in my main's bank, I set up a TSM group for them, and like the pets will soon be, they're on set it and forget it mode.  I will not complain if I open my mailbox with over 100k in it, not one bit.

Consolidating My Operations
For the sake of brevity, this will be the last thing I touch on.  One thing I've noticed myself doing recently is not posting from certain toons.  My glyph posters, Leatherworker, and my Engineer in particular.  So what I've done is take some of their more valuable items such as the Sky Golem and LW crafted gear, and started posting them from my main instead.  I always log my main first whenever I even touch WoW, so I know if anything's getting posted, that these items will be included in this list, and rightfully so!

The reason I think I've been shying away from these markets, and transmog as well is because they're such high volume markets, and I have a lot to move.  I've been considering consolidating my inventory.  Selling only high volume glyphs (I currently post em all) or limiting my transmog inventory down to 1 and DEing the rest, but I still don't think it'd really be a huge savings of time, and all that Disenchanting would not be fun.  We'll see where it goes, and I'll be sure to keep you all posted.

Thanks for reading.  I hope you all had a great holiday and enjoy the rest of the holiday season!

  1. I still make about 10k a day from transmog, and i try to keep an inventory of 3 of each, however the market starts to get filled up with competitors, and i see very rare items more often than not. I am on the biggest EU server, so this might have an impact

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!
