    Problems with posting in TSM

    Hey,

    So I've been using TSM for a few months now following the Enchanting guide that was posted here a while back. Its been doing fine, but recently when I go to post auctions, the values are really off. I usually set the auctions with a posting threshold of 125% of crafting cost and a fallback of 200% crafting cost. For some reason, even after scanning and trying to use different databases to pull crafting costs from (I usually use AuctionDB-Market Value or Auctionator- Market Value), it will still try to post my auctions at well below my threshold.

    For example, today I tried to post Enchant Cloak- Superior critical strike, which when I mouseover AuctionDB says has a value of about 150g. Crafting cost is about 100g even with a current scan. However, when I go to post i TSM, it says the threshold is 30g. Anyone have some ideas where the problem could be? I dont want to have to completely redownload the addon if at all possible.

    Do you have multiple items in each group?

    Also, post some screenshots of the group (not category) settings for an item that's not posting correctly as well as what Auctioning is posting it at.

    No, each enchant is in its own group, and all follow the category posting rules that I mentioned above. Here's a couple of screenshots describing what I meant. Although someone else has posted, the threshold it shows is way too low. The threshold should be 125% of crafting costs. For this item, the crafting cost is around 90g, so threshold should be 110g, not 12g. Heres pics of what it shows and what I think are the relevant settings.

    The second screenshot shows the Crafting cost is 10g, which would be correct for a ~12g threshold. Am I missing something? Where are you getting 90g from?

    That particular enchant costs 1 mysterious essence to craft. If you see in the first 2 screenshots, you can see that I can sell them currently for around 100g each, so the crafting cost should reflect that after I did a full scan, which I did prior to taking these screenshots. When I go to the crafting queue, it shows up correctly, but not here.

    Crafting cost is how much the materials cost for a craft, not how much you can sell the crafted item for. The fact that the enchant is currently selling for 100g has nothing to do with the crafting cost.

    Sapu,
    I believe he was referring to the fact that he could actually post the mysterious essence (the only mat required for this enchant) for 100g (based on current lowest competition of course). Not the enchant itself.

    Does TSM include the price at which it can disenchant items for the mats in the crafting cost as well?

    OP,
    Remember also that your posting price for the mysterious essence may not be the actual market value of mysterious essence. The lowest current buyout could be sky high because there were no others on the AH and someone is gouging.

    Perfect example is the fact that on my server the market average value of mysterious essence is around 12g, peeking at around 14g, which falls below the regional market value of 21g for the US region.

    If the market value for mysterious essence is truely 100g on your server, and they are selling at that price, you may want to look into some items that are disenchantable for mysterious essences and see what the prices are like on those at the moment. But I think you will find that actual market value (which is what crafting costs will be determined by) is much lower than that.

    100g for an mysterious essence is an unusual price. AuctionDB Market Value is not going to reflect just the most recent scan. It takes a number of factors into consideration as well as some historical data. For more info: http://tradeskillmaster.wikispaces.c...B+Market+Value

    Edit: - just noticed you have "use lower of price sources" checked. I bet if you uncheck it, it will go with the "minimum buyout" value instead of AuctionDB Market Value. That will fix your problem. (Although personally I wouldn't use minimum buyout for pricing my enchants - too much weird fluctuation).

    I've tried changing several settings, including unchecking the "use lowest price" option. I've tried using a different database, auctionator at this point, to try to increase the threshold to the proper point, but no luck. I looked at the threshold for just selling the mysterious essence, and its market value is 60g with a threshold of 25g. That enchant now shows a threshold of 30g instead of the 80g it should be, even with the market value of the Mysterious Essence. I'm just about ready to completely reset the addon and start from scratch, which I really don't what to do. Is there a way I can completely reset the AuctionDB and start with a fresh scan, or am I missing something obvious that has changed recently?

    Try this:

    /tsm -> Enchanting -> materials -> click on Mysterious Essence -> take a screenshot.
