Drunken Musings Ep 4



I've been on vacation for most of this week, so I haven't been able to mention this, but about a week ago me and GoblinRaset recorded episode number 4 of our Drunken Musings of Insane Gold Makers podcast, and if you're interested you can give it a listen here.

Since I just got back, don't expect a gold making post today, but there will be one this weekend!

Cheers,

Dying Poor in 5.4

Blue tweets have come out that say:
U.S. has two weeks from yesterday
Until 5.4 drops and rocks your World
of Warcraft, Hellscream's wrath's unfurled.

Wise gold makers know patch time is near,
The time to switch to TSM 2 is here!
For 5.4 will break TSM 1 it's said
And leave your competitors left for dead.

But not you, because you made the switch,
Even though setting up your groups was a bitch!
Now you're better off, no worse for wear,
And you won't end up pulling out all your hair.


For serious though guys.  TSM 1 will most likely break with the patch, as it will not be updated any longer (the current version of TSM is 2.0.x, by Patch day we may be on to 2.1).  Start learning TSM 2 if you haven't already.  I know there are a lot of people out there who are really "hating" the addon, but I have not talked to anyone who's been using it for over a week, and set everything up that would EVER want to switch back.  Unless you want to be stuck posting auctions by hand in 5.4 I highly suggest upgrading ASAP!

TSM 2 Transmog Importing

I finally got around to updating my Xmog list.  I've added a few items, taken a few out, and I've created a ton of subgroups for my own use that I'm playing around with, expect a post on that in the future once I've worked the kinks out (or watch me work out the kinks live when I stream).

Importing:
Step 1
Have TSM 2.0 and all it's modules installed, as well the addon Mogit (Mogit is the best addon for xmog).

Step 2
/tsm -> Groups -> New Group -> Type Group Name -> Enter

Phat Podcasts

This past week I've recorded and guested on 2 podcasts, be sure to check them out for your daily dosage of Phat Lewts!


Drunken Musings of Insane Gold Makers #3
Earlier this week I got drunk with GoblinRaset and we recorded our third Drunken Musings Podcast.  This is by far the most drunk either of us have gotten during this particular podcast, so give it a listen to hear all the secret guarded gold tips we gave out!

You can find the episode here.

You can find all past present and future episodes here.


Late Nite With Stede Episode 004
Stede has been one of my favorite critical thinkers in the gold making community for quite some time.  A Wind Trader on The Consortium Forums, Stede frequently masterminds some really intelligent spreadsheets and thoughtful posts.  Recently he started a gold making blog, Late Nite With Stede, which can now be found at his new web address www.lnws.net.

I was proud to be a guest on his podcast last night, episode 004, we had a great time recording it, and if you haven't listened to his podcast yet, this episode is a great place to start, and I'd highly suggest going back and listening to the first 3 episodes as well.  If nothing else, for Stede's dreamy radio announcer voice.

Last night's episode can be found here.

The previous episodes can be found on his blog, iTunes, or YouTube.

TSM 2.0 Video Guides
I just wanted to include an update about my TSM video guides.  I've been getting a lot of positive feedback about the videos (link's on the left sidebar), and I wanted to kind of get a feel for what people would like to see in other TSM 2.0 videos.

These videos cover the basics, but I'd like to cover some more advanced topics, preferably that people would be interested in watching/learning about.  Let me know what you'd like to see, and I'll take it into consideration for my upcoming new videos!

Cheers,
Phat Lewts

Learn TradeSkillMaster 2 Video Series

So I finally got my things together and buckled down to make some TSM 2 tutorial/guide videos because TSM 2 is going to be released on Curse sometime this week!  If you haven't already check out all the new features in TSM 2.0 before watching the videos.  Now, without further ado, the playlist for my Learn TSM 2 Video Series!

PLGB News

So I've been away from WoW for a few days (3-4), got really busy IRL, but got back to normal today.  Just have some general announcements I wanted to get out, no real "gold making post" per say, but useful/relevant information none the less.

Streaming
I've begun streaming a bit recently.  My goal is to stream 3-4 times a week.  It's a casual atmosphere, just doing my thing making gold, and you can watch and learn, chat, and/or ask questions.  I've been having a lot of fun with the viewers who show up, and I hope that a lot of you all can come and visit at some point!  The stream can be found at www.twitch.tv/phatlewts, and can always be found on my right sidebar.

Podcast
Me and GoblinRaset are recording another live episode of The Drunken Musings of Insane Gold Makers tonight over at www.twitch.tv/goblinraset.  We are going live around 9pm eastern, 6 pm pacific, so be sure to drop by if you're around!

TSM 2 Videos
Are still in the works.  I've not been working on them obviously since I haven't played in half a week, but they're coming out and will be out for general TSM 2 release, mark my words!

Alright that's all I've got for now.  I'm probably not going to be writing too often in the next few weeks but I'm always around at The Consortium, Twitter, WoWEconomy, and WowProfitz IRC.


Cheers,

Phat Lewts
