TSM Wowuction Prices are Going, Going, Gone!




As many of you may have noticed, TSM_Wowuction has been a bit unstable recently, with price updates taking much longer than normal. To this effect, the TSM team has announced they've decided to end support for Wowuction pricing as of the r303 release of the TSM App.

What does this mean for you?
Most likely, not much. As mentioned in the above post, the Wowuction price sources will now map to a corresponding TSM price source. Also, TSM has created their own Region Market price source in DBRegionMarketAvg. Quite frankly, I was unaware that DBGlobalMarketAvg was truly "global" (US and EU servers combined), and I had thought that it was a Region-wide (US or EU specific )price source all along. The difference now would be that you should be able to recognize nuances in the price sources between US and EU servers now, which is most likely quite noticeable in high end items.

To me, this update is a bit of a nonissue. I've stated multiple times that I much prefer TSM sources, as they are updated hourly to my addon, and the TSM team is much more involved in World of Warcraft, and have been consistently there to fix things when they go awry, whether it be a battle.net Auction House API update, or changes in game that require the addon to be fixed. They are the gold standard for the WoW gold making community, and I believe they will remain so for time to come.

I believe that to an extent this will also clear up some confusion for newbies when considering price sources for items, as now there is not as much confusion between the sources and they're all fairly well described. If these changes go live before the weekend, I'm going to attempt to put together a video on price sources over this weekend, as quite frankly it will be a lot more straightforward now.

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!
