The Battle Pet market is probably the most profitable market I participate in, purely, because of the astronomical profit margins that I can make. With the freedom of purchasing pets from one realm (ideally a high populated realm) and selling on another (low-medium populated realm), brings vasts amounts of profit due to the differences in supply and demand and the difference in competition and customers available to me.
Ideally, for me the best results and for ease of use, I use the same pricing for all realms, this means I can carefully buy pets at a set price, and know if I sell it for 50% more than I purchased it for, I stand to make 50% profit. However, if I have different price strings dependant on the size of the realm, things become tougher to monitor and the need for spreadsheets to keep tabs on purchase and sale data. Feel free to opt for this, if you have a desire for numbers and using spreadsheets. I prefer to keep things simple and prioritise my time, where possible. Time is money, after all.
Disclaimer: While every care and attention was made creating these TSM Strings If you happen to find any issues, please contact me, I will immediately look into the issue. Also remember, these strings do not have any operations; this is to prevent any potential pricing issues.
Please follow the directions below precisely, to minimise any potential issues.
- Back up your current TSM Profile, in case of any potential issues, then you have your old Profile as a backup.
- When importing a TSM Profile, import one string at a time and use the chat command /reloadui to force TSM to save your import. Importing too many strings at any one time can cause your data not to save correctly.
- If you encounter a lockup whilst importing a string, please be patient! Do not use the End Task feature with Windows Task Manager to close the program. Wait for the game to respond, this is just the game importing the data (The larger the string, the longer the delay). If you do get disconnected, don’t fear, your data should have imported successfully.
Once you’ve successfully imported the Battle Pet group, be sure to head on over to wow-pets or The Undermine Journal (whatever your preference) and price your pets. Be sure to price vendor pets at the vendor price, to prevent buying overpriced vendor pets on the Auction House. I know you may find this daunting, but bear in mind, once imported and operations created the return on Battle Pet sales will make it all worthwhile.
Below is an image of how the group looks. There are a lot of subgroups, but it keeps everything clean. If you use tooltips, the information within makes purchasing effortless. As long as you have your TSM tooltips set up correctly when you hover over a Battle Pet, it will show the origin of it (e.g. prevents buying overpriced vendor pets).
