    Question Advantages of tsm

    Sup everyone

    Could someone please tell me what tsm advantages of using tsm

    I myself don't know how to use tsm fully but find it very confusing. I find using auctionator and auctioneer so simple to use by simply doing a scan looking on undermine journal and wowuction and crafting and posting what's selling popular. So why do people prefer tsm?

    Thanks

    Tsm imo is what its name says really(trade skill master).

    While it might not be the best for simply buying mats, its definitely the best for mass listing/canceling trades, as well as the crafting itself.
    If you don't do large amounts of posting, you might be fine going with either of those two, but once you get into posting hundreds at a time it really really helps.In short, TSM helps you to simplify the crafting,listing and relisting process, at the cost of fairly substantial initial set up.

    this guide by reverb should get you to understand how to set up tsm, you can essentially replace the enchants with any profession.

    Using TSM I can post 240 glyphs (2 each of 120 different types) in about 2 minutes. Use Auctioneer and try to post 20 glyphs by hand in that time. People new to the addon always seem daunted by the "setup" but honestly, it's more than well worth it. The time you invest in setting it up and learning it pays off within the first week (maybe 2 max) if you're a serious poster. If you're even remotely serious about making gold in the Auction House, then TSM is your addon, bottom line.

    When I first started TSM , I agree its overwhelming, I used Auctioneer and ZeroAuctions for years.
    Its funny cause QuickAuctions/ZeroAuctions never worked with enchants, and I read somewhere that is what motivated @Sapu94 to start TSM.
    The most important thing to learn is how to create a group to post.
    Don't worry about anything else first.
    Learn how to make a group i.e. glyphs 200g-24g , Its the gold circle looking thing.

    Now don't worry TSM gets updated a lot and its free.
    Click that gold circle , create a group , set a floor price and ceiling price , and post.
    If you can create groups in TSM you can start to learn every other piece.

    It is a work of beauty.

    *Whips out lifetime triple-gold-cap along with the number of days with an excess of 100k in raw sales, table collapses easily under the weight as hits the ground causing earthquakes and power outages, NATO promptly responds by evacuating all coastal areas worldwide, the ensuing population loss stabilizes climate change and world hunger*

    ^ That. For what you're doing? Forget wouction. Forget TUJ. Crafting and posting profitable stuff on a small-scale can all be down in TSM. If you're going large scale - set a restock Q to craft up to your pre-specified stock levels and post-at-will.

    It's a complete mindset change that you simply won't understand until you make the jump. It will be the greatest thing you ever do in this game. Many of us are so far past the pre-TSM days that it's difficult to remember the advantages over auctioneer.
    Retired - I blame Kathroman for everything.

    (that's a joke, eh)

    1 - It's extremely powerful, which is part of the reason why it takes a bit longer to get used to.

    2 - That barrier of entry actually works in your (our) favour, since it means that many "lesser" goblins will stick to inferior tools.

    3 - Most of the advice/tips you see around here will be designed with TSM in mind, so you'll be in a better position to receive further help if you're already familiar and using it.

    4 - @Sapu94 and the TSM dev team are the best in the biz!

    Take the plunge - it's easier than it looks, and the initial settings are honestly the biggest hurdle. Once you get those configured the way you'd like, there is very little left to manage. Based on your routine, I expect you'd be able to shave a solid 50% off your crafting time once everything is up and running. TUJ and Wowuction are great statistical tools, but they're really not meant for crafting queues. Same with auctioneer and auctionator. Good posting/AH tools, but if you want the whole package (and then some) TSM is so far ahead of the rest, it's not even funny.
