Chronicles of Noobia: Phat's Weekly Lewt Review

So as I mentioned yesterday I'm in a heated competition with Selltacular from Copper to Gold, and I thought my weekly review would be a good time to go over what I've been doing in game to make gold.

Humble Beginnings
I started off the competition with a Belf Disc Priest. The reasons are numerous, but the main being Belfs are good models for transmog using Mogit and Atonement healing is amazing/mindless/like having a 4th dps in the dungeon. Anyway I quickly got bored at level 6, and wanted out of Silvermoon, so I decided to head to org to scope out the Auction House. Here I am greeting some of the local denizens of the Undercity Zeppelin Tower (I just missed the Zeppelin because I went to the wrong tower).

Upon reaching Org and realizing I had almost no gold, I did a few more quests and got Mining/Herbalism, actually picked a few herbs before deciding that I hated myself and got to level 8. That's when it hit me! The DMF was in town! I quickly picked up fishing and took the portal out to DMF to fish up the Floating Debris pools. A great strategy for some startup capital as they have mats like Windwool Cloth, Trillium Ores, and many other MoP level mats. Also since I did not have a mount yet, I spent time in between pools killing the level 10 crabs that surround the island for some extra XP/vendor greys. Here I am jamming out with the Tauren Cheiftans and not being productive.
So I got a good amount of crates crates, as well as a DM Adventurer's Guide so I could collect DMF items from dungeons and I ended up getting a Mysterious Grimore and an Ornate weapon on the first day (was really grinding because the DMF was ending soon and I wanted to capitalize ASAP. I spent the following 3 days grabbing crates in my down time as well as well as leveling with Mining/Enchanting.

Moving on Up
So of course I took this gold and reinvested it like a madman. Below is a screencap of some of my better flips:

I actually snagged most of these deals using TSM_Sniper, and a keen eye. I have shotty TSM data at best, so when I saw something pop up, I always compared to prices on the AH. When I came across 3xFrostweave Bags for 60g/each, I instantly knew that was a great deal though, as was a Reckless Vermilion Onyx for 12g. Also snatched White Trillium Ore for under a gold a piece, as well as some Savage Leather, which is big in leveling up LW. All around some great flipping. Then there's not so great.

Betting Big
I had about 1200g liquid at a certain point and decided to reinvest. I checked out the Frostweave Cloth market and it looked like something I could buy up and control. You need ~60 stacks to level Tailoring, and I thought I'd buy up the market and gauge prices. Not a good idea. I ended up not having enough gold to buyout the entire market and that pretty much backfired on me, haven't sold a stack yet. I will lower prices and hopefully get some sales, but definitely not what I was expecting. I also invested in Moss Agate/Star Ruby's, and to date have sold only 1 Moss Agate.

The Winning Bet
My best conquest for last, and new info just came in as I'm writing this post. I purchased a Brooch of Munificent Deeds (an 80-84 Uber Blue) for 500g and relisted it for 3500g. These trinkets are rare, and very powerful at their level. Within an hour of reposting it, I got an offer which I rejected:

After getting this PM so quickly after posting it, I decided to up the ante, and I canceled the auction and reposted it at 4,500g, and wouldn't you know it, while writing this post/using Sniper in the background I get this message:

So there you have it, I'm stopping now and coasting to win the contest. I joke, but seriously I have so much gold to reinvest now! Giving Selltacular a run for his money!

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!
