So you want to start flipping mog items but have no brain for WoW fashion and pricing? I have you covered!
Things you will need:
#1 You will need TradeSkillMaster (all of it) including TSM_Wowuction
#2 You will need to head to Wowuction.com and register with the site.
Let's get started!
Get some Data!
Head to Wowuction.com, register, and download data for your realm. Go to the Resources menu and choose data export. Go to "Data Export for TradeSkillMaster Addon WoWuction Module" and get your realms data, either 1 faction or both. Move the "tsm_wowuction.lua" into your TSM_Wowuction directory in your add-ons directory. If you are logged into WoW, hit /reload to make sure the data is there.
Get some Deals!
Go to Wowuction.com, making sure you are logged in, and your realm is chosen. Click on the "Bargain Hunter" section and choose "Armor." Sweet, we see a couple of nice deals! I usually try to buy stuff below 20g that has a Region profit of 100g or greater. To make buying even easier, click on the little barrel icon, and get a TSM shopping list to import.
Head to WoW, and buy those items you've chosen, and get your items from mail
Price Items on the Fly with Wowuction!
Open TSM, and create a Category called Mog. We are going to keep this group as is, except instead of a static Threshold/Fallback, we will use WoWuction to price for us. Use the "% of Wowuction Region Median" for the threshold and fallback, and choose your actual percent depending on your realm/faction. The numbers I show in the graphic are just what I use, feel free to adjust! This negates any lowball, highball, or never seen stuff on your realm, and frees you from making pricing decisions for each item.
In TSM, go back to Auctioning Groups, and click "Categories/Groups" in the navigation. Choose "Quick Group Creation." You will see your new items to the left, you want to add those items to "Uncategorized Groups" all at the same time, and click "Create Groups."
Since we are dealing with Mog, many of the items will have "of the Bear", and we don't want to have different groups of essentially the same item, so lets fix that. Click on each group you have created, click on group overrides, and check "Add Items by ItemID". Almost done!
Lastly, choose the Mog category you made previously and now add those uncategorized groups to your Mog category.
You pretty much do this once or twice a day, grabbing bargains, creating groups if you have never bought that item before, and then posting. Just make sure you update your "tsm_wowuction.lua" on a semi-regular basis to catch any trends.
Not Just Mog!
You can use this same brainless technique on Recipes too!
