20 Days

Something happened with this page.  I need to fix it to include all the links in their proper spots, and if you're reading this, I haven't yet.

If you haven't been reading my blog, or perhaps you missed some posts, Nev from Auction House Addict came out with a  20 Days of Goldmaking Challenge, which I completed, and I'm going to highlight my answers to all her questions here with TL;DR versions, with links to the posts, if you're interested in reading more.  Hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them!

1. When did you start gold making & what triggered it?

I started gold making out of 'necessity'. I sold gold, and eventually got banned.

2. If you set yourself a goal, what was your goal & at what point did you set it?

Having a ton of max level characters to take advantage of was key!

4. Do you use a banker alt/guild? When did you start doing that & why?

I always post the bulk of my high profit auctions from the character I play the most on, which switches from time to time.

6. Which market has made you the most gold over the years?

First thing I'd do is sell a Battle Pet or two for quick capital, then I'd get into my basic flipping markets while leveling a DK to 80 ASAP.

8. Thinking back to day 2, did you ever reach your goal or are you still working towards it? If you reached it - have you set yourself a new one?

Wrath Epic Gems. They're timeless, and they always sell (since WotLK) for good profit margins.

10. Do you farm materials? Why? Why not? & which ones, where?

iSold, Auditor, Mogit, Gathermate 2.0.

12. What was your biggest 'oops' moment?

Quickly Flipping two TCG Mounts for insane profit!

14. How much of your playtime is devoted to gold making? Do you raid/pvp/pet battle too or is the AH your main playtime?

I have everything except skinning/LW. Check my page for my spread if you're interested.

16.Flipping! Do you flip stuff regularly or sometimes? Big ticket items or smaller high volume stuff?

Overall pet battles were a disappointment to me, I can still sell vendor pets, and Caged Pets are great for new servers.

18.What is the most important bit of advice you could give to a new gold maker? (not a game newbie though, just a newbie gold maker)

Invincible's Reins for 750k.

20. Lets spread some blog love - which are your 'must read' or 'go to' gold blogs or even other places you go for information & reading matter?

participants here.  Some really great reads!

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!
