I hope you are all well in the land of goldmaking? It's been a while since my last profession deep dive and I wanted to share with you my results for Enchanting since BfA released and share with you all my TSM groups and pastebins.
The first caveat for this is to get Enchanting to 120 and Iwen's Enchanting Rod
. The second is ideally to have access to a Tailor and Leatherworker to be able to do the Bracer Super Shuffl
e and get good mat prices for enchants. I know the process of shuffling bracers is incredibly arduous, so please only really do this if you have a penchant for such things in small doses! The third caveat being this is server dependent and so remember your results will vary compared to mine.
Enchanting has been my main profession for a long time, I had it early Vanilla and really used it in earnest for making gold in Legion. Now with BfA out and established, it has settled into a steady earner for me on my server. 8.2 will see some new changes with the higher levels, but much of what is here will still be relevant.
There are 2 parts to having a good spread of sales - BfA current content and Old World for Levelling/Twinks. The 2 biggest sellers for me are the rings - Enchant Ring - Pact of Critical Strike
(159) and Enchant Ring - Pact of Haste
(215) Getting in there at the beginning of reset day is essential and that is the best day for sales.
I've also had great success with the following (number of sales) ..
There are quite a few good levelling enchants, I simply looked at one of the many guide spreadsheets out there and picked all the enchants I could make.You can get my Enchanting setup for TSM as part of my full profile on this pastebin
Market and Region Market Value
The TradeSkillMaster add-on
is objectively the best way to quickly appraise value of BoEs through pricing provided on the item's tooltip. Alternative resources include the TradeSkillMaster website
where value can be looked up, The Undermine Journal website which can also lookup prices, and current prices of items on the auction house.
There is an important difference between the Market value of an item and the Regional Market Value. Market value takes into consideration items posted to the auction house on an individual server while Regional Market Value is an aggregate across all servers in a region. BoE trade volume is relatively smaller than say current content raw materials so looking at a regional price can be helpful when determining value.
One of the biggest areas we tackled in version 4.10 is a complete iteration on the UI and user interaction philosophy of the addon. Since the launch of version 4, we have read lots of discussions and comments with feedback on the design of the addon, both positive and negative, to understand the underlying reasons that created these feelings and experiences for you, the user.
We’ve made more efficient use of space and reduced the bulky overheads across the addon. In the primary interfaces such as Shopping, this gives more room to see the searches you use most often for example. Most of the buttons and actions most-used have been rearranged or moved to more prominent positions, creating a smoother flow as you move around the Auction House.
After running a shopping scan, the results are polished and clean making it easier to see the information you’re looking for at-a-glance. Columns are more clearly marked when sorted, and more of them are sortable. You can even resize them.
You may have noticed the pause button in the Shopping Scan screenshot, this is a new way of managing your scans and jumping in to buy something you spot that’s a crazy deal without losing your scan data, or even post items before your Auctioning scan is complete without needing to start over.
Custom Price & Value Improvements
Being able to reference your operation prices has been a popular request for some time, this will finally be possible in TSM 4.10. As an example, you have a Shopping Operation assigned to a group which provides a maximum shopping price for any item contained within it. This maximum shopping price can be referenced as a custom value in your Auctioning Operation assigned to the same group for example, or your minimum Auctioning price defined in the Auctioning operation can be referenced in your Shopping Operation. We think this will help create very powerful operations and tailor them even more to your preferences.
Empowering your operations even further, we will also be allowing the use of custom values and prices in some non-price fields. Take your Crafting Operation as an example, you may want to craft more or less of an item depending on its region sale rate, this will be possible by using a logic function in your max restock quantity instead of only using integers.
We are also exploring the addition of more value sources based on your own personal accounting data, such as sale rate to compliment existing purchase history and expiration data.
Crafting Spotlight: UI Improvements
Another common request is to replicate the default WoW UI with recipe pinning or favouriting. We have implemented this in to the TSM4 Crafting window and you can add your most commonly used recipes or cooldowns to the top of your recipe list, regardless of which expansion they’re from. Working in tandem with the Task List you’ll never miss a daily cooldown or restock. You’ll also have finer control over the Crafting Queue, with options to remove an item from the queue entirely with the click of a button regardless of quantity, and modifying the quantity on the fly with a text box instead of increments of 1.
As part of the general UI revamp, we have made more use of the space in this interface too. The materials required for a recipe has a bigger space to fill which is useful for those bigger crafts, plus the toggle between the recipe list and your TSM Group tree is more distinct for easier access.
We’re very excited for what’s to come with the version 4.10 of TradeSkillMaster, let us know what you think by joining the discussion on our Discord server
