Level 90 Boost: Professions Too?

Analysis of my competition with Selltacular is currently being worked on, but until then, some interesting news today.

Blizzard's 5.4.7 PTR Patch has been datamined by Wowhead, and there are 2 interesting strings in there that could have an effect on our professions:

  • CHARACTER_UPGRADE_PROFESSION_BOOST:: |cff00ff00Veteran Bonus:|r |cffffffffLevel 60+ characters will also receive a skill level boost to their primary professions.|r

Now, from what I can see here, it seems as though the "current" system in place is that you will be able to get a skill level boost to primary professions only if you are at least level 60 on the toon you're boosting. Some interesting info, I'm sure we'll be seeing more as the PTR is tested, and I'd love to know how much the boost will actually be. Very interesting news today, it will be fun to see how this pans out!

  1. I wonder if there will also be a min profession level as well.

    Would it be fair if I took my 65 Warlock who currently is JC and... Tailoring? (don't ask, old character) and has them maxed currently and had them boosted up, vs. if I dropped Tailoring, picked up, say Enchanting, left it at lvl 1 and get it boosted to the same level?

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!
