You have found a Lost Page to my Journal. In this page you’ll learn some of the secrets of TradeSkillMaster. Addons like TSM are essential if you are to master the Auction House and for any of the professions where you are trying to craft items for a profit. TSM will also help with the daily chore of empting your mailbox and managing your bank. But probably the most powerful feature of TSM is the ability to create groups of items to which buying and selling rules (operations) can be applied. If you can master TSM then you’ll be sure to get to your first million gold in Warcraft in double-quick time.

I have often spoken of the need for an Auction House addon when it comes to making gold and the one I recommend using is TradeSkillMaster or TSM. However, TSM is more than just an Auction House addon. Apart from the TradeSkillMater core module there are other modules to help with accounting, crafting, destroying, mailing, shopping, vendoring and warehousing (bank). There are a few other ‘helper’ modules but these are the main ones I always use.

I’ve mentioned using TSM for auctioning, crafting and shopping in previous Lost Pages. If you regularly use professions like Enchanting or Jewelcrafting, then you’ll want to include TSM’s destroying module. You’ll find TSM’s mailing module makes managing your mailbox simpler and quicker. The vendoring and warehousing modules are optional but I like to have them, which leaves accounting to help with your ill-gotten gains.

“Feed TSM good data!”

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″ disabled=”off” parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on” column_padding_mobile=”on”][et_pb_text background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” admin_label=”Text” text_font=”PT Serif||||” text_font_size=”20px” text_text_color=”#363636″ text_line_height=”1.4em” use_border_color=”off” border_style=”solid” disabled=”off”]

All of these TSM modules are useless unless they have good quality Auction House data to work on. With most addons this means ‘scanning’ the Auction House in-game to accumulate statistical data such as the Market Price of an item. If you only play Warcraft infrequently, your scan data can be a little spotty (statistically unreliable). Poor data is the main reason players lose gold when playing the Auction House. They end up auctioning or shopping for items at too high or too low a price.

To help with this, those clever engineers at TSM have provided a free app (Windows & Mac) that will scan the Acution House even when you are not logged on to Warcraft and populate your TSM Auction House database as long as your computer is on. I highly recommend  using this app with TSM.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row make_fullwidth=”off” use_custom_width=”off” width_unit=”off” custom_width_px=”1080px” custom_width_percent=”80%” use_custom_gutter=”off” gutter_width=”3″ padding_mobile=”off” allow_player_pause=”off” parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on” make_equal=”off” column_padding_mobile=”on” parallax_1=”off” parallax_method_1=”on” parallax_2=”off” parallax_method_2=”on” parallax_3=”off” parallax_method_3=”on” parallax_4=”off” parallax_method_4=”on” admin_label=”row” disabled=”off”][et_pb_column type=”2_3″ disabled=”off” parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on” column_padding_mobile=”on”][et_pb_text background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” admin_label=”Text” text_font=”PT Serif||||” text_font_size=”20px” text_text_color=”#363636″ text_line_height=”1.4em” use_border_color=”off” border_style=”solid” disabled=”off”]

Once TSM has good data it can display a useful pop-up whenever you mouse-over an item in your bags or on the Auction House. In this example the TSM vendor module tells me the shirt’s buy price is 24g 75s but the Market Value (obtained from statistical analysis over many days of scans) is 796g 24s 79c. Note that the Market Value is for your local realm or server; the Regional Market Value represents the average across all servers in your region (EU, US etc).

You can configure TSM to display more or less data in the pop-up depending on your preference. The important point to take away is that TSM needs good data from frequent daily scans over a long period to provide useful information.

A powerful feature of TSM is the creation of groups to which various operations can be applied, such as ‘auctioning’ or ‘shopping’. This sounds complicated but is not that difficult once you know the ropes. In my TSM guide I take you step-by-step through the process of creating groups and applying operations, allowing you to quickly shop for items and auction them very quickly for a great profit.

As an example, you may want to setup a group for Fish Flesh (Warlords) and apply an auctioning operation to this group. Operations are sets of rules that apply specifically to that group. For example, auction the item in stacks of 20 at a normal price of 110% of Market Price and a minimum price of 85% of Market Price. Operations provide you with powerful tools to sell and buy your items.

TradeSkillMaster can be a little daunting when you first try to set it up, which is while I’ve dedicated a complete guide just to this addon. I also show you how to configure TSM correctly. There are many players losing gold throughout Azeroth because TSM is not giving them good information. I also reference TSM throughout my other guides such as Auction House Secrets and the Professions guide. Once mastered, TSM provides you with powerful tools for making gold in double-quick time.
