TSM 2.0 Guide - Jewelcrafting Edition
This guide will cover a complete setup of TSM 2.0 for jewelcrafting but specifically focusing on the main 6 raw gems and their cuts. Should you be into the Meta market and or the jewellery this can be implemented into your setup without much additional troubles.
Principles of this JC setup
ˇYou are stocking 6 of every cut you know at all times. This lets you have some on the AH and some to repost when they sell without re-crafting. Much like a shop works in real life.
ˇOvertime you can increase the number of each cut that you stock if some are selling better than others or you are able to snag a great deal on one particular cut.
ˇYou will be buying raw gems straight off the AH.
ˇThis is a method that requires no "shuffling" of ore. The shuffle will almost always be more profitable but at the cost of a large time investment. It is your choice how much your own time is worth but this setup is for "min time/max profit".
Setting up your groups
Firstly allow TSM to create its own groups and from there you can create 6 subgroups of crafts, one for each colour of gem. Although this isn’t totally necessary as you could have all the MoP cuts in one group, this will allow for customisation later down the line. (Plus I am an organisation freak!)
Once the groups are made and the correct gem cuts in each one remove all materials from the "materials" group apart from the 6 raw gems.
Once our groups are set we can move to the operations tab and start creating some Auctioning/Crafting/Shopping Operations.
Sell 3stacks of 1 @24H
Min = max(110% crafting, 20g)
Norm = Max(150% crafting, 125% dbmarket, 21g)
Max = Max(150% crafting, 200% dbmarket, 22g)
Reset = Don’t Post
The values for posting quantities can be adjusted to fit your servers demand for gems. 3 stacks of 1 is a safe bet for the average server. I don’t post for longer than 24h as the deposit fees are very high for gems. If you are active enough you could save a lot by reducing this down to 12H
English version of Min price = Your minimum price you will post a cut gem at will be the larger of either; 20g or 110% of the material price of the raw gem.
Eg. A raw River’s Hearts market value is 18g so minimum posting price would be 20g
E.g 2. A raw Vermilion Onyxs market value is 100g so minimum posting price would be 88g
This works as we will only be buying the raw gems once they fall below 80% so we still making profit.
English version of Normal price = If the auctions for a cut are super high in price you will post at the higher of either 150% of the crafting cost or 125% of the market price to make a nice profit.
(Normal price will very rarely be used due to the competitive nature of gems though.)
English Version of Max Price = Will never post at a price higher than the higher of 150% of the crafting cost or 200% of the market value.
Craft min1 max 6
No minimum profit
The maximum quantity is totally up to you but I like to have a complete set of 3 gems to be able to post if my first 3 sell out. This can reduce the time I spend each week crafting.
As for not having a minimum profit, this is because we will be buying out the cheap gems off the AH before we cut out first batch of gems. This will mean we act like a shop. We keep our stock of every gem we know how to craft and only recut them as we sell them.
First(100% crafting, 80%dbmarket)
Buy @100% crafting or 80% market value when searching for raw gems.
We are only buying the raw gems when they fall below 100% of the crafting which is 80% of the market value. This is a safe boundary for buying gems at as we are only selling them for a min of 90% of matprice/market value so we are always making profit on every sale.
Applying Operations to groups
Once we have created our operations we need to apply them to our groups.
We need to link our auctioning crafting and shopping operation to each of our gem subgroups but only our shopping operation to our materials group.
Adjust Material Prices
Next we need to change the default material price of each of the 6 raw gems to “80% dbmarket” only.
(Before the rage comes in, yes you can use alchemy/shuffle to get the gems but this guide is built for simplicity and speed while acquiring most profit)
Before we start crafting gems its important to go to the AH and run our shopping list for jewelcrafting. This will pick up some raw gems to start with and most likely some cuts to buy that are being sold for less than what its costs to buy the raw gem and cut it ourselves.
Once we have our stock built up we can very quickly on a daily basis run the crafting on JC, cut the gems that are either missing or have been sold and get them posted on the AH.
In all searching for raw gems, cutting missing gems and posting on the ah should take no longer than 10mins a day once this is set up.
Hope you enjoy!

Reason: Amended shopping operation to work with raw gems
