Transmog List Beta Testing

Recently I've been getting a bunch of comments on my Transmog videos/blog/emails/etc. about how the TUJ sources are erroring out. Come on guys! I know it's probably not the people who actually sit down and read my blog, but if a price source doesn't work, take it out of the expression, simple as that!

I'm adding DBGlobalMarketAvg to my pricing, and I'm going to average (avg function in TSM) that and the wowuction source now. I've edited my original xmog instructions to reflect this change.  If you do not have access to that pricing source, you can get it by enrolling in the TSM App open beta by following the instructions here.

Beta Testing
So the TSM App is not the only gold making tool going under some beta testing. Thanks mainly to TheExile, a Wind Trader over at The Consortium Forums who mentioned that quite a few of the items he liked to flip were missing from my lists. So of course I had to make it better.

My first instinct was to import other xmog lists, and see what they had that I did not. When I started to do so, I was finding a lot of items valued under 100g, which is wholeheartedly not my style. So of course I did what any "sane" person would do, I took TUJ's (now defunct) in game pricing addon, pulled all the pricing information from that addon, got it formatted into excel, and took literally all the items it that were above 300g, and imported them in game to cross check my xmog list. I looked at all of those thousands of items by hand, and added the ones that I considered to be Xmog, exported that list back into excel, sorted them into their previous pricing structure, and imported them once again into their proper groups.

It was a laborious process, but I think my list is better for it. The problem is, I'm on a small server, and do not have a lot of time to play WoW right now, so I'm not going to be able to see the potential errors that may exist in these groups before I unleash them on the public. So to that accord, I'm going to be "Beta Testing" the list, and hopefully the pricing structure I mentioned in the beginning of this post.

All this really means is that before I replace my main xmog list with my just created one, I'm going to ask you all to test it and give me feedback on what you like/don't like, items you think should/shouldn't be on the list. I am going to suggest only people that have already been involved in xmog markets test this list. Feel free to leave feedback and respond to feedback in the comments on this post.  Your feedback is going to be critical on making or breaking this list, so please if you see anything suspect about the pricing, or think I'm missing an item, let me know about it! Click here for access to the beta list.

Thank you all in advance for testing this out, I look forward to your feedback!

Cheers,

  3. Bored out of my wits at this point in the expansion. I'll try out the new beta list and hopefully that streamlines things a bit.

  5. I notice you still use TUJGEMarket in your pricing. With the impending closure of The Undermine Journal, will this source still be updated and valid?
