Welcome to today’s blog post, where I’ll update you on a new addition to The Undermine Journal and its potential successor, the Oribos Exchange.
If you have the Addon: The Undermine Journal (TUJ) installed, you need to know that this is obsolete and will no longer receive updates. If you use this Addon in-game for pricing data, act now and uninstall it to limit any potential issues!
Before I start, I just wanted to apologize for my absence over the last two weeks. I’ve been incredibly ill (not COVID) since New Year’s Eve and experiencing intermittent internet service (possibly COVID 😂).
Thankfully, both issues have cleared up, and full service is resumed!
The Undermine Journal:
If you’re a frequent visitor to my blog, you’ll know that I regularly promote The Undermine Journal because of its excellent features that benefit me and other GoldMakers.
Their website (which is still in operation) offers a lot of information and price data, meaning we can look closely at profitable items and, importantly, steer clear of items that have inflated in value due to naughty Goblins.
In patch 9.7 of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, Blizzard introduced the Region-Wide Commodities to the Auction House. The new improvement allowed players within a Region to buy commodities from different realms.
The improvement was to help crafters with the upcoming profession overhaul coming to World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. With Professions being important, Blizzard was aware of the new-found demand for materials.
However, since the update to commodities, it’s fair to say that the value of most Old World crafts has crashed, as materials are easier to come by. Check your Auction House, and you’ll see how dramatically the value of some crafts has fallen by.
Sadly, these changes meant that The Undermine Journal could no longer support commodity price data. For a detailed explanation, check out Erorus’ post on Patreon!
Website – Oribos Exchange:
With the inability to track the values of commodities efficiently, Erorus (the developer of The Undermine Journal) has developed a new website called the Oribos Exchange.
While this is good for tracking prices for commodities, it also tracks prices for most items posted on the Auction House. What’s appealing is the website’s appearance; it’s very similar to the in-game default Auction House.
Ultimately, this means players frequently using the Auction House in-game can easily navigate around the website. If you’re a fan of the ‘Deals‘ search feature, you’ll be pleased to know it’s available here too!
As The Undermine Journal website still offers a lot of in-depth information, I can see the website continuing to operate. However, I’ll update you immediately if I hear of any future developments.
Addon – Oribos Exchange:
As I pointed out at the beginning of this post, the old Addon: The Undermine Journal (TUJ) will not receive any further updates and is marked as obsolete on Curse Forge.
If you use TUJ, immediately remove this Addon, and install the new Addon: Oribos Exchange.
The Addon offers the same information as TUJ but also includes commodities. You will see just one value for commodities, the median region value! The Addon will receive updates several times weekly; I’m guessing Wednesday and Saturday.
Addon – Oribos Exchange New TSM Source:
If you used the Addon: TUJ in the past and, like myself, incorporated the source: tujglobalmedian within your TradeSkillMaster (TSM) price strings, these will now be invalid and will return errors.
This is why you need to act immediately, as items that use this price string for your shopping/posting operations will fail to purchase/post any items.
I contacted Erorus this morning (13.01.23) as I was unsure of the new sources for the new Addon: Oribos Exchange, and thankfully, Gumdrops (TSM Support) got in touch. Entering /TSM Sources within the in-game chat box will prompt you to the new supported sources.
These are as follows.
- OERealm (Oribos Exchange Realm Price)
- OERegion (Oribos Exchange Region Price)
Supporting the Developer:
Again, I like to use my platform to help promote others, especially those who offer much of their time and know-how to make GoldMaking efficient. After all, without their Addons/Websites, things would be a lot harder.
With that said, if you’re in a financial position to support Erorus, please check out his Patreon. By contributing, you can help him continue developing the Addon/Website and show your appreciation for his hard work and commitment.
Alternatively, if you’re an AdBlocker user, consider white-listing his platforms, and the Ad revenue will hopefully contribute towards his future work.
For important updates, consider following Erorus.
Don’t forget to follow me on my social media platforms, where I post regular updates regarding gold-making in World of Warcraft.
Any feedback is greatly received; please use the comment section below. If you need to contact me, use the contact me method. Please consider liking and sharing if you found this post helpful and believe it could be useful to someone else.
Thanks for reading!
