TSM4 Battle Pet Import String 8.0.1

Hello guys, so I’ve managed to spare a couple of hours and finally get round to updating my TSM 4 Battle Pet groups. These groups include all the recently added battle pets for Battle for Azeroth (BFA) 8.0.1. I hope to have a future update, if there’s anymore pets released in 8.1

Battle Pets Import String for 8.0.1

Please bear in mind, these groups have no operations included and may not work with TSM 3; this is to limit any future issues that may occur. The operations can easily be created by yourself with some excellent information from The Undermine Journal & WoW Pets. These sites will have guides on the average prices the pets are posted at, on any given realm you select.

I’d also like to add, that these groups won’t be of interest to everybody. These groups are designed to offer as much information as possible to hand, when accessing your tooltips for promptly buying and selling on the Auction House. The groups will use a vast amount of in-game memory due to the size of the groups. Below I’ve added an image of the what the layout looks like within TSM 4.

You will also notice in the image above, that each Battle Pet is separated into alphabetical order and where possible, further separated by their level, rare and uncommon status. This is to give each pet their appropriate operation easily, as each pet has their own price.

What this image won’t show above, is that the whole Battle Pet import string is separated in to 4 groups, (A-F, G-M, N-T, & U-Z) this is purely because of the size of the import string, and to import it as a whole, would make the game lock-up and the import fail. Below I’ve added a detailed rundown on how to successfully import these strings. Please follow them to prevent any issues.

How to import my Battle Pet string.

1) Go in to your addons in-game and deactivate all of them apart from TSM4. (This prevents any conflicts during importing) then /reloadui in the chat box to save your work. You can reactivate your addons, once everything is complete!

2) Open TSM4 and backup your existing profile, go to: Settings > General Settings select your profile and select duplicate then name your duplicated profile Backup Do a /reloadui to correctly save your work.

3) Now head to my Pastebin; below are the links to each of the Battle Pet import strings you’ll need.

[TSM4] Battle Pet Import String (A-F) No Operations 13.10.18
[TSM4] Battle Pet Import String (G-M) No Operations 13.10.18
[TSM4] Battle Pet Import String (N-T) No Operations 13.10.18
[TSM4] Battle Pet Import String (U-Z) No Operations 13.10.18

Make sure you only import one string at a time! Once you’ve imported one string /reloadui to save your work, then proceed to importing the next one! If you notice your game is non-responsive after importing a string and you’ve correctly /reloadui previously, then let the game crash to log-in screen. This is normal! This happens when a lot of information is imported in to the game in one instance. DO NOT go into Task Manager and End Task as this will not let the game save all the data you imported. When you log back in, you’ll see that the groups actually imported successfully!

*However, if you did forget to /reloadui previously, then your only option is the Task Manager and End Task! Your game will lock-up, if too many large imports are made in one go! This is why you’re urged to /reloadui between each task!*

Once these directions have been followed, you should have a complete Battle Pet Group including all the pets introduced in 8.0.1 at your disposal. Now you can reactivate your addons!

**Whilst every effort was taken to correctly create these groups, you MIGHT come across a mistake. Be sure to drop me a line either on my Blog (please be aware comments need to be moderated before being published) or for a prompt response, use my Twitter handle and I’d be happy to get back to you at the earliest convenience.**

BFA TSM4 Raw Material String

Whilst I had some spare time tonight, I’ve quickly collected some data from Wowhead, so I could create a TSM4 Raw Material string for Battle for Azeroth. If you’ve not created your own yet, please feel free to use mine. I’ve quickly scanned through and as of yet, I don’t see any issues, but if you see anything wrong, please do let me know!

Here’s what my BFA Raw Materials group looks like…

Be sure to backup your profile before importing, to prevent any importing issues. Once successfully imported, do a /reloadui to save your data. I can’t confirm if this works for TSM3 as I no longer use it.

Link to my Pastebin

I haven’t added any auctioning/shopping operations as the prices are very volatile once Battle for Azeroth begins. I’ve separated the materials, so you can easily assign each material it’s own operation. This is what I do as most of the materials I sell, have different values etc…

Normally, when there’s new content, the materials are very expensive, because people are rushing to max level their professions to get World first achievements. This is a great time to post any materials to the Auction House that you’ve looted, if you don’t intend to level your own professions from the start. The demand will be so high for materials that the prices can be extortionately high, take advantage of this whilst you can!

As the expansion settles, the prices for materials will stabilise. Be sure to check the Auction House periodically, to update your operations accordingly.

Following these tips and you can earn yourself some obscene amounts of gold from the beginning of the expansion.

Over the next few days, I will add the professions too. In the meantime, if Sheyrah releases her strings beforehand, I’d recommend checking hers out instead, as they’re always the best. Keep an eye out on her Twitter, for any future updates.

TSM4 Is Finally Here…

The long wait for the full release of TSM4 is finally over; but sadly, with a few unexpected hiccups! I didn’t manage to login for a couple of days prior to the release on the 28th July, thus meaning I couldn’t back up my TSM3 data prior to upgrading. Well, my TSMApp didn’t show a backup, since the 26th, when I last played. Typically, the second I logged in to Warcraft on the 29th, TSMApp auto updated to TSM4 (all thanks to being a premium member) and didn’t get the opportunity to backup. This left me with no other alternative, but to seek one of my previous backups. Sadly this was destined to end in misery, as my only backup prior to the 28th, was the backup from the 26th July, and it gave me errors on all 5 accounts upon logging in.

I didn’t have any other addons loaded, so knew it wasn’t conflicting with other addons… so I was left with the dreaded scenario of either patiently waiting for a fix, or taking the plunge and deleting all my TSM data within my WTF file and re-importing everything from scratch. I took the plunge and as quick as you could say shazzam, it was all gone!

Now if there’s anything noticeable, about importing via TSM4 compared to TSM3, is the quick and effectiveness of making groups and changing them around, however… the downside is without doubt, the inability to actually import groups quickly, especially, large groups of information. Now bear in mind, the groups I have saved within my Pastebin, are created, imported and exported through TSM3, but with TSM4, it struggles to import the same amount of data, and as a result, experience huge lag spikes and occasional crashes. It was that bad, I even had to minimise my Battle Pet strings, from 2 groups into 4 groups, and it still lagged out and crashed!

Thankfully, when it comes to importing, I’m almost a seasoned pro *intended sarcasm* due to the amount of times, I’ve had to reset and re-import my profiles. After almost a day, slaving over my 5 accounts and importing all my saved data from my Pastebin, I can finally log in, with no errors and open my mail and post auctions again… for how long? who knows! At this moment in time, I’m experiencing no errors, apart from the odd moment when the game hangs up, when I transfer from one profession to another, but nothing a simple /reloadui macro can’t sort out.

My fresh looking TSM4 all updated and running smoothly… finally!


*Disclaimer – This TSM profile was originally created by Sheyrah! Please click HERE if you wish to use her original profile!*

I’ve seen others experiencing a lot of issues too within the woweconomy subreddit, so I know this isn’t an isolated issue. If you’re experiencing issues too, I’d recommend waiting on a potential fix, or seek help from TSM’s Discord channel. I used TSM’s error report function in-game, but sadly I didn’t have the time to wait for a potential fix, but do hope my reports help developer create a fix that might help you guys out!

Although all this has been time-consuming, time, which I would’ve spent elsewhere, I’m grateful that I can play again, without the issues. It’s been a massive undertaking from the TSM developers to bring us TSM4, they’ve tried their utmost to bring us this without any issues, but sadly it didn’t go to plan; but I’m sure given time, they will have this working 100% in no time at all. I’m sure It’ll prove to be a massive improvement from the trusted TSM3 addon too. Hell, if I was honest deep down, I would expect there to be issues, especially during a time, where so many other addons are getting updated too, all in preparation for the release of Battle for Azeroth. So it wouldn’t surprise me if most of the issues others are experiencing COULD be due to conflicting addons.

Anyway, here’s to the release of TSM4 keep up the great work guys and no doubt better times ahead! Keep the faith everyone!

The Secrets of The Darkmoon Faire (Revisited)

Hello to all my readers!

Today, I felt it was a good time, to revisit an old blog post, that needed updating: The Secrets of The Darkmoon Faire This was originally posted back in 2015 and I felt it was in need of some love. As with a lot of markets within World of Warcraft they’re constantly changing; especially prices and the demand for items! A lot of what I recommended back in 2015, has since changed overtime and it’s only fair that I update those changes and offer some advice that may be profitable on the realm you play on!

It’s important to point out, that this is a guide that outlines what I do, if you wish to take this information on board and incorporate this on to your realm, be sure to use all the information available to you, to maximise your profit. Helpful websites/addons posted below, that can show current/average prices, realm populations etc. I use these and they’re an important foundation to every Gold Makers success!

WoWProgress
Wowhead
The Undermine Journal (TUJ)
Wow-pets
Wowuction
TradeSkillMaster (TSM)

CLASS TRIALS:
Now it’s important to start off by informing you, that Class Trial characters, can no longer access The Darkmoon Faire, so the exploit to farming Replica gear has been fixed. So what does this mean for us? Well, the over saturated Replica market, will slowly dry up, as the demand outweighs the quantity available and obviously has the potential to result in another rise in prices.

Alternatively, you have 2 options. Levelling DK’s through the starting area, rinse & repeating as originally pointed out by Sheyrah & Xionik or creating an allied Race character which starts at level 20 (be aware, that you cannot hand in all quest items and buy Replica items – as these have a level requirement of level 60) but you can purchase Battle Pets as there’s no level requirement.

WHAT IS THE DARKMOON FAIRE?
The Darkmoon Faire is a World event that is only available to you for one week from the 1st Sunday of each Month. To see if this event is available, simply open the Calendar in-game and you’ll see when/if it’s available.

The Darkmoon Faire has a lot to offer, from completing profession dailies, (helping you increase your profession level), fun mini-games and some rare bosses to conquer, with some decent loot, i.e. the Darkmoon Rabbit as a reward (if you’re lucky!). Most of these tasks, reward you with  Darkmoon Prize Ticket which if used correctly, can be used to purchase some profitable items, which you can sell on the Auction House.

DARKMOON QUEST ITEMS:
Darkmoon Faire Quest Items, are the most important items to loot (if you’re lucky). Be sure to have the  Darkmoon Adventurer’s Guide in your inventory! Now if you don’t have one, simply pay a visit to Selina Dourman who will give you a replacement. If the RNG Gods are against you, and you’re not fortunate enough to loot any/all of them, then you can purchase them, but do so before The Darkmoon Faire comes to Town. The prices sky-rocket to about *2000g each (dependant on realm)! I’d recommend buying them up mid-way through the Month when it’s closed, where you can buy these up anywhere below the *500g mark.

(*) Denotes current changes to Darkmoon Faire Quest Item prices since release of Battle for Azeroth. Check this blog post for a detailed explanation for the price changes.

As with a lot of markets in World of Warcraft, these prices greatly depend on the size of the realm you play on, and supply and demand. High populated realms, tend to have a lot of these quest items; with high competition, bring lower prices to the customer. Low populated realms, have lower competition and bring higher prices. To take advantage of all of this, just buy your quest items when The Darkmoon Faire is closed! Once we turn all these quests in, we are rewarded with some gold and 80  Darkmoon Prize Ticket!

Reminder: If you’re not exalted with The Darkmoon Faire, be sure to hit that Carousel before handing these quest items in, as you’ll receive an increase to your reputation gain.

Also: Be aware that you can only hand in one of each quest item per Month. There are 9 in total, which I’ve added below, including a TSM import string for your convenience.

Darkmoon Faire Quest Items:
Monstrous Egg (10  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
Fallen Adventurer’s Journal (5  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
Banner of the Fallen (5  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
Captured Insignia (5  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
Imbued Crystal (10  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
Mysterious Grimoire (10  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
Ornate Weapon (10  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
Soothsayer’s Runes (15  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
A Treatise on Strategy (10  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)

TSM Import String:
71635,71636,71637,71638,71715,71716,71951,71952,71953

With the information we have above, we have 2 options, loot/buy the quest items to earn  Darkmoon Prize Tickets, to purchase a range of items available from The Darkmoon Faire vendors (as outlined later) or loot/buy the quest items to flip at a later date when the demand for them is far greater (ideally the first Saturday of the Month, before the Faire is about to open).

SILAS’ SECRET STASH:
You can also earn  Darkmoon Prize Tickets, completing the quest Silas’ Secret Stash This is a quest chain, that can only be done ONCE PER CHARACTER! To get this quest, either fish up 100  Darkmoon Daggermaw or simply purchase them from your local Auction House (you’ll need to pay approximately 25g-50g per  Darkmoon Daggermawthen purchase  Faded Treasure Map from Galissa Sundew.

A great Gold-maker called OldBess, who creates awesome World of Warcraft GoldMaking content within the community, has created a great video showing you how to complete this quest chain. Please do like, share his video if you found it helpful. Also, please do subscribe to him, as you will get updates on future content, thank you!

The last alternative to gain  Darkmoon Prize Ticket, are to complete the Profession & Mini game dailies on the Darkmoon Island – also not forgetting the 2 Pet Battles Jeremy Feasel & Christoph VonFeasel (which can be completed every day till the Faire closes!) and The Den Mother’s Demise!

WHAT TO SPEND YOUR DARKMOON TOKENS ON?
Now hit (C) to open your character info, and check out the currency tab, here it will show you how many tokens you’ve collected and have available to spend. Ideally, if competition is low on your realm or prices are high, we will be looking at spending our tokens on Replica Transmog, but there are alternatives with Battle Pets if you prefer.

REPLICA TRANSMOG:
Replica pieces can be very profitable to sell on the Auction House and are purchased from Barum & Baruma. If you wish, you can also purchase the Heirloom replica’s; these are available from Daenrand Dawncrest. For the Belts, Bracers, and Gloves, these items will cost you 50  Darkmoon Prize Ticket each and for the Helm, Chest, Legs and Shoulder’s, these will set you back 75  Darkmoon Prize Ticket each! Be sure to use The Undermine Journal, to see what the most profitable piece is, for your realm.

As a rough guide, the minimum you could sell one piece for, is approximately 40k on a medium to low populated server. On a high populated server, anywhere around the 30k mark! Now, I know many of you will be sceptical, that’s only natural… so what better way to prove it by using our trusted friend Twitter! Simply head on over to Twitter, and in the search box, add the following #Replica #Transmog this will show you all the tweets tagged with Replica Transmog! The Tweets from the top, show you recent sales/activity, during Legion, and if you scroll down, you might be lucky to see sales from previous expansions. This will outline, how drastic the prices have changed over time/expansion.

To help with posting, or maybe buying the Replica’s for flipping, I’ve added below the links of the gear sets and a link to my Replica TSM Import string at my Pastebin for your convenience.

Replica Sets:

Cloth
Dreadmist Raiment
Deathmist Raiment
Magister’s Regalia
Sorcerer’s Regalia
Vestments of the Devout

Leather
Shadowcraft Armor
Darkmantle Armor

BATTLE PETS:
If you delve into the Battle Pet market like myself, you’ll be interested by this section. Lhara is the Darkmoon Pet & Mount Vendor and sells a collection of pets that you can cage and uncage to sell on the Auction House. These pets can be bought for 90  Darkmoon Prize Tickets each and can be sold at level 1 for approximately 10-15k each… but you may wish to level them to 25, to gain that extra 5-10k each. If there’s a pet of interest, be sure to check out wow-pets and see what the current average price for that given pet is for your realm. This is a great source of information, if you dabble in the Battle Pet market.

Reminder: Be sure to kill the Darkmoon Rabbit too, this pet still sells for a nice amount if you manage to loot one. People are posting at 30k-45k but I’ve been managing to buy them up to sell at 90k-100k still.

Again, for your convenience, you can find my Darkmoon Battle Pets TSM Import String from my pastebin HERE. This also includes, rare (and uncommon where possible) level 1 and 25 pet IDs and also the Darkmoon Rabbit IDs.

This is all the Darkmoon Faire stuff I deal in, but there’s an array of stuff, that you can do, that I’ve not even touched on. The best guide that I can recommend is from Wowhead and it’s the one I use, when I need to do profession dailies on my alts, check it out HERE! Be sure to give it a rating and leave a comment if you found it helpful!

Many thanks for reading, I hope this updated guide, helps you understand a little more of what I do within this special event and the changes to the prices and improved emphasis on the importance of realm populations to maximise your end product. Because at the end of the day, that’s what we’re all thriving to do as Gold Makers – make the most amount of gold as possible, with the least amount of effort/time.

If you have any questions, feel free to hit me up on Twitter, I will do my best to help where necessary. If you’d prefer, DM me and I will reply at the earliest convenience.

Until next time… take care!

Battle Pet Import String Update

My Pastebin has recently been updated to reflect the emergence of Naxxy, the new battle pet from Hallow’s End. If you’ve already got my group imported already, there’s a quick solution. Here’s a detailed walk-through to help import these 2 ID’s and keep the groups formatted properly.

ID Import Walk-Through

Open TSM > Groups > Battle Pets > N-Z > N

Create a new sub group Naxxy (World Event-Token Vendor). Select this group and add two more sub groups named Naxxy level 1 & Naxxy level 25.

In Naxxy level 1 click on the import/export tab and add this battle pet ID p:2002:1:3

In Naxxy level 25 click on the import/export tab and add this battle pet ID p:2002:25:3

/reloadui in chat, to save your work!

Once imported successfully, you will have something looking like this…

new battle pet update for blog

If you’ve not imported my battle pet profile before, check out this blog post for a full walk-through and installation.

Sheyrah’s Profile
Alternatively, if you prefer an easier to manage battle pet import string, may I recommend Sheyrah‘s import string from her pastebin which have shopping operations etc. Its a lot easier to manage and more importantly, you can change each pets shopping and auction price settings to your specification.

She’s a great goldmaker and has a lot of guides on YouTube including how to import her complete TSM import profile. She also has a Twitch channel. If you have any questions regarding any part of her profile, don’t hesitate to ask her, as she’s always willing to offer help & advice.

Thanks for reading, any advice/feedback greatly appreciated.

Battle Pet Import String for Legion 7.3 (Complete)

(Updated 15.11.17: Includes both level 1 & level 25 Naxxy)

I’ve decided to remove all the previous outdated Battle Pet strings as this may lead to confusion and may conflict with future versions. As of today (05.10.17) this import string is complete, including level 1 and level 25 for every trade-able battle pet.

Like previous versions, I’ve split the string into two groups, as the complete group is far too large to import in to one import. The two groups are A-M and N-Z. These strings DO NOT include price strings, this is to prevent any potential issues. I also wouldn’t advise using price strings from someone else, as economies differ on different realms. My price strings are set to different realms and not based on an average like in the past. This is because wow-pets.com is no longer being updated.

Directions for use:
One: Backup your TSM3
Two: Create a group in TSM addon called Battle Pets
Three: Select the import/export tab and import A-M string!
Four: Once you’ve imported it, enter /reloadui in chat to save your import
Five: Once reloaded, reopen TSM and Import N-Z
Six: Again /reloadui once more to save that import.

Here’s a screenshot of what the group should look like, once successfully imported and group layout expanded. If you do not follow the steps above, then you will have a group missing, or maybe pets missing, so please follow careful!

blog pic for battlepets

When you do a search on the AH, please be aware that scanning times may be very high, due to the sheer amount of Battle Pets you’re searching. If you’d prefer to use a different search method, I’d recommend entering this into the TSM AH search box; /Battle Pets/i25 for level 25’s and /Battle Pets/i1 for level 1’s. This is slightly quicker and just use your tooltip with your price strings, to evaluate whether to make a purchase.

Please DM me on Twitter if you experience any issues, or you need some advice and I’ll get back to as soon as possible. This is the quickest method of contact!

Thank you to Sheyrah for the /reloadui tip, for updating TSM to prevent loss of data on multiple imports. Also a big thank you to Muffins for the Battle Pet ID’s for 7.3. Without these, this wouldn’t have been completed as quick! Muffin works within the TSM team, also known as TheOneOnDruryLane.

I’ve added their Twitter accounts, be sure to check them out!

Updated Battle Pet Import String v.4 (NO LONGER AVAILABLE)

Good evening guys. Finally… yes finally, I think I have completed my Battle Pet Import Strings. Well, until the next patch comes out and more Battle Pets come into the game. Whilst every care was taken to create these groups and settings, if you do come across any errors that need my attention, please do contact me via Twitter and I’ll gladly help you out where necessary.

On this occasion I’ll be sharing three strings, two which have the Auction & shopping Operations included. These had to be split up, due to the size of the group. When you import these, make sure you /reloadui after the first import. This will write the info to your addon files and obviously refresh TSM. The other one, is without operations and easier to import. Simply copy the string you wish into your TSM3 which will benefit you the most. Please make sure you back up your TSM3 prior to importing, in the case of any potential issues/errors. If you do experience any issues, please do let me know on Twitter.

If you want to share these strings, please do so, but credit me where possible! I’ve spent a lot of time creating these and I always credit people their work I share, I would appreciate the same please. Please DO NOT sell these strings either, these are created to help others, not to profit from them.

Battle Pet Import String v.4 WITH Operations A-M

Battle Pet Import String v.4 WITH Operations N-Z

Battle Pet Import String v.4 WITHOUT Operations

Reminder:
Thanks to Peelyon, Super Squirt is on Sunday 12th Feb, so if you wish to power level any Battle Pets from 1 to 25 please follow his guide. Also, don’t forget he streams on Twitch too. He has a depth of knowledge on Battle Pets and making gold within Warcraft, so be sure to drop on by and check him out.

Many thanks for reading and hope you benefit from these strings. Until next time.

TSM Import Strings

This is a collection of import strings I use within my TSM. I have included other people’s strings as well as incorperating a couple of my own. I will try my best to credit the appropriate authors where applicable. If you feel Ive missed you, please do message me and I’ll rectify it as soon as possible. Nothing intentional.

Strings have been uploaded and saved at Pastebin.com Simply scroll down and find the string you want and click on the link. Simply, copy and paste the string into your TSM. Ive tried to keep my subgroups intact for you, but you can readjust them in TSM as you see fit. If you have any questions, please do comment below and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
