- Talk about what I do at the auction house per session
- Discussion on Addons
My day usually starts quite late, around 4pm or whenever I get off work and ends around 11pm preferably. (This differs day to day) I do all my posting, re-posting, purchasing new items, and market research within this time frame. This doesn't include days (like today) I'm off from work.
So, I have WoW open, along with my handy dandy excel program. Check the mail first, gather up any expired auctions or any coin, and proceed to AH for posting. After my old auctions are posted I do multiple scans of the AH using TSM(later) and its deal finding program.
The list(s) I predominantly use from this are for my leveling gear market. Although, I have been known to use it for a quick look at the DMC or trade good markets from time to time. It has been by far the easiest way to find cheap items to flip and all at the push of a button. XD
Up until this point, I've been solely into the leveling gear market. So my routine was quite easy with 48 hr durations, after two days - repost - easy.
Now with the new markets, I'll discuss this later, I've been constantly busy with re-posting which is necessary in some markets to keep up with competitors. The leveling gear market doesn't have the competition that really requires me to re-post more often than once every day, if even that. (On my realm)
Though, now that I'm branching off into other, more volatile, markets I'm finding that duration is something that you have to tweak, depending on the market. Otherwise you'll be spending way too much on deposits, esp. if you have to re-post before the duration is up.
That's my day in a nut shell, so to speak. Post, buy, research, re-post, rinse/repeat.
- TSM (TradeSkillMaster
There's a really impressive guide on TSM by Raenboe here with a part two here.
I personally love the addon, It's easy to use and extremely customizable. Although, first thing I did do was create a macro " /s TSM" to toggle the main screen for convenience.Along with this addon you can get TSM Application which is a database of all the auction houses - all factions - all realms, with real-time data. You never have to scan the AH again!
The Application has its own client and allows you to choose your realm and faction from a list. You can have up to five different databases at one time for you cross-realm farmers. :)
ArkInventory is neat little addon too, it consolidates your bags into one window and allows you to have full customization of it. Like in the picture, I have my metal, stones, gems and elemental materials in there own spaces. I even separated raw gems from cut gems for added convenience.
My main bag is empty, that's because I just did a re-post! :)
I also have BeanCounter. TSM has a similar addition that is like it, but I like the visuals of beancounter for auction house use. I suppose its just preference.
That's pretty much all I use. TSM does so much that I don't really need much more than that.
