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.**

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.

Week One Sales & Catch Up!

Good evening guys and welcome to my weekly blog; looking back at my sales for the week ending (30.10.17). I hope you enjoy this, and maybe find some ideas for alternative markets to get involved in.

It’s been another great week as a crafty Goblin, managing to hit gold cap again on another alt realm. Sadly… the lack of a Guild bank, meant I spent 2.9m on 10 wowtokens (290k each), so I could loot the remaining gold from my mailbox. These tokens have raised my Blizzard balance back up to cap (£200). I have future plans to transfer some alts to pastures new, so the balance will go to good use.

Here’s a summary of the liquid gold I currently own on my 3 accounts. The 2.9m for tokens has already been subtracted from the total. (Addons used: Altoholic, TSM3)

The grand total is 78.56m, this is an increase of 2m (5m if you include the 2.9m above) since the 16th October, from my last review on Twitter. Below is a collection of my sales from many of the realms I operate on. I hope this format is easier on the eyes, than my previous posts on Twitter. I’d happily agree that 15-20 posts in one day, condensed to one blog post is definitely easier on my eyes!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As you can see, my main markets are Legion BoEs and Battle Pets. These are easy markets to get involved in for me. The BoEs are currently in high demand, due to level 101 twinks and Battle Pets offer great versatility, basically because of the ease of transferring them to low populated servers for insane profits.

Please do remember that I play on E.U and Battle Pet prices are far greater in value, than those on U.S. realms.

I also dabble in Transmog and Profession crafts too, but the inability to run cancel scans regular, mean my sales are very low. These can be very profitable markets if you have the time and patience to cancel and re-post often; thus meaning your auctions are always at the top. Take advantage of raid days too, this is when I try and log in on my main and take advantage of those raiders looking for consumables etc.

If you know me well, you know I don’t farm anything anymore, well…  you could suggest I farm the Auction House LOL!! Whatever I sell, you can bet your bottom dollar that it originated from the Auction House. I buy at a maximum of 50% it’s value and aim to sell at a min 105% it’s value. This is just a rule of thumb, so it makes it easier to track my profit. TSM3 accounting is unable to track individual ilvls and different stats on items for Legion BoEs, so this is the quickest alternative for me. I used to have a bog standard spreadsheet covering purchases and sales, but it got too time consuming!

Here’s some highlighted sales, in no particular order:

Eyasu’s Mulligan – 237k
Treia’s Handcrafted Shroud – 237k
Sash of the Unredeemed – 336k
Cyno’s Mantle of Sin – 356k
Talisman of Jaimil Lightheart – 242k
Geta of Tay’Shute – 356k

Some excellent flips, if you follow the rule of thumb explained above.

Before I finish, may I take this opportunity to remind you of the awesome news recently revealed, that TSM4 is on the horizon! If you’ve not used TSM up to this point, don’t threat, there’s no time like the present! Check out this great article on TSM4 HERE and see how you can get early access in late November. Gumdrops, who is a familiar face on woweconomy, is also part of the TSM team. He also streams on Twitch and offers many Q&A TSM streams, so if you’re looking for advice, check him out – he’s an awesome gold-maker too!

Until next week, thanks for reading…

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.

Peelyon’s Updated Squirt Strategy for Legion… 25.08.16

If you’re not aware already, Peelyon has released a new video, with an updated strategy against the Garrison Menagerie daily, Squirt. With the changes to the Weebomination’s cleave it was imperative that a new strategy was created and with the collective information from members on Wowhead a solution was found. Peelyon now has a very nice strategy, that will give us a 100% success rate, but will also complete the fight a lot quicker than the previous strategy.

Remember, Squirt is only available once  every 15 days from your garrison’s Menagerie and at this time, is the best way to power level your battle pet from level 1 to 25.

If you’d like to watch this strategy and see what battle pets you need, please do watch the video below and follow the directions very carefully!

As ever, please do show your appreciation and like and subscribe to his channel for future updates and videos. Peelyon has his own stream on Twitch and also streams on behalf of IcyVeins for their new Gold Making content. Give him a follow there too and get updates on when he streams next. You’ll see me within his chat too, as I moderate for him. My alias on Twitch is Grarand.

5 Days till Legion…

So, the very long and tedious wait is almost over and the countdown for Legion is in the single digits, well… if you’re an EU player, it’s 5 days to be precise. The question on my lips is… are you prepared?! LOL

Legion Preperations
Given that my efforts in the build up to the release of Legion was to buy as much stock as possible, invest in as many cheap battle pets as I could possibly get my hands on and more importantly, level all my professions up to 700 to take advantage of new patterns and craft best in slot crafts for Legion levelling. It’s been a huge success and I’m definitely prepared! If you read my previous article “As the dust settles on the legion pre-patch” you’ll know that I’ve built up an impressive inventory worth approximately 25m gold. I will continue to build this up further, right up to the last couple of hours of Warlords of Draenor, then look to sort my inventory out, to maximise my transition to Legion. My Transmog has all been moved to an alt account, so I can buy and post auctions, whilst playing on my main account, the ability to buy WoW Tokens, has made this easy and achievable.

It’s worth noting at this point, many people without the space, will look to offload a lot of their inventory, in readiness for Legion so they have space to level and gather new materials in Legion. People like myself, who have plenty of space, thanks to Guild Banks, look to profit from the very cheap materials that people will post. If you check your Auction House, you may already noticed a big influx of cheap materials already. If I had any tips for you, it would be to buy up as much Outland materials as you possibly can! For example, Motes, Primals, Scales, Leather and Enchanting materials. Farming will die down, with the introduction of new content and some of the best Transmog crafts need these materials. Not to mention the Tomes you can craft from Enchanting.

Yet Another TCG Battle Pet Dupe Wave
Another thing you might have noticed recently, is another dupe wave of (TCG) Trading Card Game battle pets. Sadly, any hope of holding out for Legion to sell my stock, took a small hit, as the new wave gave another opportunity to others to build their inventory full of cheap TCG pets. Hopefully, those who did take up the opportunity to buy cheap pets, took the same method as myself and opted to buy through the Auction House. You may or may not be aware, but any transactions via the Auction House are protected. So if the worst possible scenario was to happen and your pets were removed, you should get a full refund of the gold spent on that purchase. This doesn’t extend to pets purchased via trade, so be very careful! Tio from @BlizzardCSEU_EN on Twitter was kind enough to reiterate its stance on refunds regarding compromised TCG battle pets/mounts purchased via the Auction House. Below is a couple of images to offer some confidence.


Replica Transmog
Thankfully, another thing I’ve noticed, is a drop in competition for Replica Transmog gear on my realm. This was maybe due to a new set of recipes that were made available for Scribes within the Darkmoon Faire. These cost a fair amount of tokens, thus meaning people averted their attention from buying Replica gear to purchasing these recipes. These recipes were released prior to Legion, so many wanted a head-start. The release of the new Transmog System and low competition had a massive effect on my sales, as they increased hugely over the last 2-3 weeks.

Replica sales last 30 days

Blizzard Getting DDOS Again…
Again, thanks to the world of Twitter, I’ve been made aware that again Blizzard have succumb to more DDOS attacks, which if your memory serves you well, you’ll remember it was one of the major incidents to affect the first day of the release of Warlords of Draenor. Here’s hoping that Blizzard hurry and fix these recent issues and also prevent another fiasco on the release of Legion. It’s fair to say, Blizzard lost a lot of confidence from its returning players that day, and that’s not even mentioning the word Garrisons…lol.

Power Levelling Via Legion Invasions
And last, but not least Legion Invasions… If you have alts that you fancy power levelling up before Legion, I’d suggest you get involved in this now, before it’s too late! As long as your alt is level 10 or higher, it can take part. Simply open your map (M) go to an area that is highlighted as being invaded and complete stage 1 and 2. Once Stage 3 starts, simply log out fully (you’ll see a 20 second countdown) and log back in. This will take you back to stage 1 and simply rinse and repeat. You will only get a reward once per invasion, but the sole purpose of this, isn’t the rewards, it’s the extremely high XP you gain from killing the mobs and completing the stages. Be sure to know that the mobs scale to your level, but be very vigilant, pull too many on your own and you could find yourself ressing a lot. Try and get some XP potions and Heirlooms as they help, but not important!

A helpful addon; LegionInvasionTimer
This is an excellent addon, shows you where the invasions are taking place and how long left before they reset.

Okay, one more thing… Just a reminder, that due to Legion incoming, I wont be here a great deal, but please do follow me on Twitter to get regular updates and see what I’m buying and selling. I’m also available for questions too, rest assured, if I don’t have the answer, I’ll know someone who will.

Thanks for reading guys and stopping by, until next time… Goodbye  🙂

As The Dust settles on the Legion Pre Patch

Well, were finally approaching the end of another week of the new Legion Pre-Patch and things are finally starting to settle down and think it’s fair to say we’re slowly getting accustomed to our new class changes, the loss of stats and the very sad changes to Serverhop or Cross Realm Assist. Well… if you were an avid open world farmer, it’s not all lost, as you’ll find out later on…

My Pre-Legion Hoarding Update:
When an expansion comes to an end, it’s a great time to get yourself prepared for the new expansion and as a gold goblin, attempt to profit from those, that weren’t fortunate enough to follow suit. I’ve been extremely busy the last couple of weeks and can happily say I’m ready for Legion. At the end of May, my liquid gold was at approximately 3.2 million. I think I’ve invested all my gold wisely, but the full results wont be clear until I sell my stock. According to TradeSkillMaster my approximate value of my inventory currently stands at – 25.7m.

TSM total inventory

Now, I’m fully aware that this total can be manipulated by the ‘value price source’ that’s input. So let me reassure you all by clarifying my custom price source below.

avg(DBRegionMarketAvg, DBGlobalMarketAvg, TUJGlobalMedian, DBRegionHistorical, DBGlobalHistorical)

You’ll clearly see that I haven’t got DBMarket as this can be heavily manipulated from clever goblins on your server, so I don’t use this! My price string is influenced by average Region and Global prices, to give me a very good average price source. This custom price source was slightly edited from that of Mankind’s, if you haven’t seen his TSM video’s, click HERE. They are exceptional videos, that help you understand everything to do with TSM so check them out!

A great deal of my gold is also tied up with level 25 Battle Pets (mostly very rare TCG or holiday pets) which is where we get into the unknown, as no one at this point really knows how the Squirt daily will be affected in Legion. If the Squirt daily is affected by legion we will likely see a rise in demand of level 25 pets. This is a calculated assumption that level 25 pets will be in high demand, so I’ve carefully stocked up on those that I feel will net me the most profit! I have an image below of my most sought after battle pets, this is just a little taste of what I have on my Battle Pet collector.

Battle Pets for Legion

I will be looking to sell the MoP rare Battle Pets asap, as MoP raids will become easier, thanks to Legion. Although these pets are currently hard to obtain due to their low drop rates, the supply will rise as more people clear that content.

If you want to see updates on what I’m selling or stocking up for Legion, be sure to get updates as they happen, via my Twitter and Facebook. I’m also happy to answer any questions you may have. If I don’t have the answer, I’m sure I may know someone who will.

ServerHop or CrossrealmAssist nerf:
Sadly there were adjustments, or nerfs to the much loved ServerHop or CrossRealmAssist, which to some extent, brought new beginnings. Whether these were intended or not are another matter, but thankfully if you use these addons to farm in open world, you’ll be relieved to know it’s still beneficial to use them. The devs changed it, so that if you were joining a group, that you had to be within the vicinity of the leader, to successfully join a player on a different realm. With this change, bought the ability to ‘hyper spawn’ mobs. If you were in a 5 man group and carefully positioned, this meant that the mobs were instantly spawning as soon as you killed and looted them.

The materials on the Auction House, for example  Volatile Water,  Primal Fire have crashed, due to the amount that people are successfully farming up. The biggest success so far is the frog farm on the Timeless Isle. With  Sha Crystal so hard to come by, there’s an absolute mint to be made here… and don’t ignore the whelpling farms.

Supreme Lord Kazzak:
For quite a bit of time now, I stopped doing the Kazzak weekly kill, but it’s came to my attention, that it’s worthwhile again. Not only do you have the chance to loot double the  Felblight  than what you got before pre patch, but you can also loot ilvl 720 gear now, with the chance to get upgraded to Warforged or even Titanforged. I have a number of alts and this has given me the incentive to get them geared before Legion.

** It’s important to know, that Blizzard have prevent players below level 100 to get loot from a Kazzak kill. **

Squirt Menagerie Daily Nerfed:
As Peelyon expected, the Squirt daily got nerfed and our beloved Weebomination is no longer of any use to us, well in the circumstances that we want to cleave the mobs and thus complete the battle as quick as possible. So this means we need a workaround. Thankfully Peelyon and a user on Wowhead (Robotusch) have a solution. To view this new strategy, please follow this link.

If you’re not aware of Peelyon (still) be sure to check him out at Twitch. Has a wealth of knowledge on Battle pets and gold making and also writes on behalf of IcyVeins for their new gold making forum.You can also catch me in his chat AKA Grarand. Although I’m a poor Moderator, I’ll do my best to answer any questions you have in a bid to assist Peelyon.

Anyway, that’s enough of me rambling on for now… don’t forget guys, 18th (US) or 19th (EU) for release of Demon Hunter’s, I shan’t be jumping on straight away, I’m expecting issues and will happily watch on and continue to post auctions…lol.

Good luck and thanks for reading!

Selling Battle Pets on Alternative Servers for Huge Profits!

Good afternoon readers, if you’re new to my blog and I’ve not had the opportunity to greet you yet, then welcome to my blog and I hope you find what you’re looking for! If not, feel free to drop me a line or tweet me via Twitter and I happily get back to you.

Trading Battle Pets from one server to another, is working out very well for me at the moment and I’ve already managed to make 2 million gold on 4 servers and it’s constantly increasing. There are a lot gold makers I keep in contact with on Twitter that are using these methods too, and are showing extremely good profits. If you’re not familiar with this method, It’s simply buying up cheap pet’s, power leveling them to 25 if needed and then creating 2 characters on a low or medium populated server and placing these pets on the Auction House. The benefit of this is, your’re taking these pet from a server that is heavily saturated (very cheap to buy) and placing them on a server that is in high demand for them (selling them at a very high price) thus making us a lot of profit!

Benefits:
You maybe asking yourself , what are the benefits of taking gold from your main server and putting it onto a server you don’t plan to play on. Well… to put it bluntly, there’s many things we can do with our new found fortune. We could buy further cheap pets that come on to the market or mounts, and we can flip them for profit or learn them if we don’t have them yet. Another alternative, is buying WoW Tokens. This means your gold you have on your main realms can be used for alternative purposes.

Something to bear in mind:
At the moment Trading card Game (TCG) pets are saturated on the Auction House, due to dupes. If you intend on buying any TCG pets at this time, please do so via the Auction House. Trading via trade chat is extremely unsafe and GM’s have a very harsh stance on exploited items. If you’re not aware, any trades that have included dupes, will incur the pets being removed from your inventory and returned to the correct owner and any gold you spent, will likely be lost.

Getting Started:
The best place to check for Battle Pets and whether they’re profitable to flip on another realm, is by checking this website called, wow-pets. This outlines every Battle Pet in World of Warcraft that you can trade. It also shows you an average price for each pet on each realm for level 1’s and level 25’s. A new feature recently released, is a graph, that shows the current rise and fall in price for any given Battle Pet. This is an excellent addition to the site. With this graph, it’s easy to work out the demand and how much the prices are fluctuating at any given time.

The Plan:
Option 1 – You’ll need to create 2 new characters on your destination realm. 1 character will need to be an Orc (Horde) or a Human (Alliance). I pick these, as their starting zones are closer to Orgrimmar and Stormwind respectively. If you’re an Orc, run to Sen’jin Village, Durotar and take the flight path to Orgrimmar. If you’re a Human, take the short run from Northshire Valley, Elwynn Forest to Stormwind. Both of these treks can be made easier if you have the Chauffeured Chopper, which is a mount, accessible at level 1.

Once at your major city, log out and create your second character. This time a Death Knight (DK)! Obviously, this has to be on the same realm and faction. The reason we create a DK, is that it’s quick to get a little bit of capitol together so we can post our pets on the Auction House. Remember, to post one pet, it will cost us 1 silver, so this part of the plan can last as long as you want it to, the longer you do it, the more gold you get to transfer to your level 1.

If you’ve not leveled a DK before, you’ll need to know that you cant leave the starting zone until you complete all the quests, but thankfully, there’s a mail box that you can travel to to mail over your gold. Once you’re happy with the amount of gold you’ve made, go to the the mail box, the co-ords are (55 , 46) an image below shows the building you’re looking for. Simply mail over your gold and log out and re-log your level 1!

DK leveling zone mail box

Option 2 – This option is extremely quick, but solely depends on whether you’re fortunate enough to have somebody drop a Blingtron for you. Follow the instructions to create a level 1 character outlined above and instead of creating a DK, ignore that and instead just travel to the appropriate major city and bark in trade for a Blingtron. In most cases you’ll likely get ignored. This is the reason why I don’t use this method myself, but I’m adding it, in the case that someone wants an option that could be quicker than option 1, we all know someone out there that’s not patient… right?!

What to cage:
If you’ve done your homework properly from earlier, you’ll have a very good idea what Battle Pets are going to be profitable for you. Now you just need to cage them and get them on the Auction House. Thanks to Peelyon I have a macro, that will speed up the process of caging your pets. Once the macro is created, add it to your action bar. Hover your mouse over the pet you wish to cage and use the macro and boom, it’s instantly caged your pet without the added fuss!

The Macro:
/run C_PetJournal.CagePetByID(GetMouseFocus().petID)

The Results:
If you’re following me on Twitter, you will have seen the results I’m having with this method. As mentioned earlier in this post, I’ve got pets on 4 servers and have quickly made over 2 million gold and rising. You can easily achieve this too, by good planning and following the simple directions above.

I hope you enjoyed this post. If you have anything to ask, feel free to post below or contact me on Twitter or Facebook, I’ll always reply and offer any help where I can. If you enjoy making gold with pets, I suggest giving @Pee_lyon a follow on Twitter if you haven’t already. This guy is an absolute genius when it comes to Battle Pets. He’s always on hand to offer advice too.

Thanks for reading guys and take care!

When A Trade Is Too Good To Be True…

So yesterday, 24/03/16 I was busy smelting Pyrite Ore into bars and in the very corner of my eye, I noticed in chat, that someone was eager to sell 8 pets, 7 of which were (TCG) Trading Card Game pets and 1 Hatespark of the Tiny. The person was demanding 750k gold and me thinking that was an extremely good offer to ignore, went into overdrive and quickly contacted the seller and purchased the pets without hesitation.

GM thank you - WOW 2

Thankfully, my excitement led me to posting my purchase on Twitter, obviously to boast (as you do). If you’re following me on Twitter, you’d have seen my tweets. Within minutes @RosheenWoW and @pee_lyon contacted me insisting that they maybe dupes. I’d not seen any evidence in-game for me to lead this to be the case, but now I was somewhat concerned. So without delay I contacted a (GMGame Master and I informed them of my naivety and wanted them to look into it. Today I finally got a reply, one of which kind of threw me back, as I was warned I may lose my gold and all pets returned to their rightful owner if they’ve been exploited. I quickly replied, insisting that they need to look into this as soon as possible, as my full intentions were to buy pets cheap to flip on the Auction House to make a profit and the last thing I wanted to do was jeopardise my gold and someone else’s pets for my own gain and make this matter far worse than it already was.

Within an hour a GM called Fairgano got back to me and we went into great detail of what happened yesterday and thankfully it was brought to my attention, that these were in fact stolen from someone’s Guild Bank and maliciously sold in trade. Now being a victim of having items stolen in-game myself through hacking, I could relate to this and was extremely pleased that the pets could be reunited with their rightful owner. Thankfully my gold was returned to me too, but had it been a different GM, it could quite easily have been the opposite. All the same, I learnt a very important lesson today and hopefully I’ll be more vigilant when trading in the future.

GM thank you - WOW

The GM Fairgano, also knew I was a collector and avid seller of battle pets and actually sent me a private in-game message with some pet treats in. This was a very nice gesture and one which made me giggle. Little minds and all…lol.

GM thank you - WOW 1

It’s a sad time, when there’s players out there, willing to ruin another players enjoyment, by stealing their hard earned items, for their short gains and to make matters worse, bring innocent people into the equation via trade. The morale of all this as the title of the post states, “If it’s too good to be true, it very likely is!” Heed caution and if you do have any concerns, always get in touch with a GM by opening a ticket. I was obviously embarrassed by all of this, but the result is what was important and thankfully on this occasion, everyone has their items and gold back and the culprits have been caught and their accounts closed. The problem is, with World of Warcraft easily accessible now, via offers, it’s easy to just open a new account, just to make another person’s game time a misery and so the merry-go-round continues.

Anyway, thanks for reading and be vigilant out there…
