Solo Queue For Island Expeditions in 9.1?

Expedition Map

Solo Queue For Island Expeditions?

Blizzard is finally releasing their new patch, Shadowlands 9.1 – Chains of Domination, next week! Therefore, I thought it would be beneficial to quickly check out the PTR and see whether they’ve successfully incorporated the long-awaited solo queue for Island Expeditions.

According to Jeremy Feasel, he was hopeful that a solo queue for Island Expeditions could be incorporated in 9.1 but didn’t hold much hope for Warfronts.

Jeremy Feasel statement for Solo Queues for 9.1


What Are Island Expeditions:

For those unaware, Blizzard introduced Island Expeditions in Battle for Azeroth (BFA). Players could approach the Expedition Map and sign up to queue for four different difficulties, NormalHeroicMythic, and PvP.

You needed a team of three players to participate, and it had a simple objective, reach the azerite goal first, and you won! In addition, Blizzard introduced further incentives and tasks throughout the expansion of BFA and made it worthwhile for players to continue participating in Island Expeditions for Companion PetsMounts and Transmog.


Why The Need For A Solo Queue?

With the release of Shadowlands and the lure of new content, players that continued to queue for Island Expeditions found it difficult to get groups due to a lack of interest. Thankfully, early in Shadowlands, there was hope. Jeremy Feasel informed the World of Warcraft community that they were trying to incorporate a solo queue. The community had hoped that the improvement was ready for Shadowlands 9.1.


The 9.1 PTR:

I quickly copied over my main character onto the PTR and hurried over to the Port of Zandalar. I interacted with the Expedition Map. To my astonishment, there was no method to solo queue for an Island Expedition.

When I hovered over the four difficulties, the tooltips expressed the need for three players to participate in the Mythic and PvP queue. However, the tooltip for Normal and Heroic had no minimum player requirement. Furthermore, all four options needed me to select find crew, suggesting there’s no solo queue yet!

With 9.1 due to release on the 29th of June for NA (30th for EU), there’s no way they’re releasing the solo queue unless they plan to release something in the next few days. So that would suggest that there’s no testing expected before the release of 9.1.


If No Solo Queue In 9.1, When?

Suppose there’s no solo queue in 9.1. In that case, I can only assume that Blizzard maybe hit a snag while making alterations to Island Expeditions. However, if they plan to release this during Shadowlands, then perhaps it will come in 9.2. It’s worth remembering that Blizzard usually waits for two expansions before making previous content more accessible for soloing.


What Does This Mean For Gold-Making?

The inability to solo queue for Island Expeditions means that players will continue to struggle to queue. Therefore, the need for offloading Island Expedition Transmog (as warned in my previous post) may not be necessary now. Gold-makers were worried that with the ability to solo queue, the demand for Transmog would drop. At the same time, the supply would increase, meaning a loss in value. What will likely happen now is the opposite, more demand and a lack of supply, slowly increasing its value!

But stay vigilant; Blizzard has in the past made changes where necessary, without warning. So expect Island Expedition Transmog to hold its value for now, but adapt if there are any late changes.

Fortnightly Sales Report (2nd June to 16th June 21)

Fortnightly Sales Report

Fortnightly Sales Report (2nd June – 16th June):

Welcome to my fortnightly Sales Report from 2nd June to 16th June. This report is a couple of days early; this is because we have arranged to go on a week-long family holiday from 28th June. So if you’re reading this post today, I hope you can find some value from it, maybe entice you into a new market for gold-making.

To explain why I only do my reports over a fortnightly time frame, read this post.


TSM Ledger:

If this is your first look at my sales reports, and you’re unaware of the TSM Ledger, it is a great tool available from the TSM website. The Ledger collects your purchase and sales data from the app and gives you the freedom to build reports.

If you’ve not used TSM Ledger yet, and you use the TSM app, give the Ledger a try; you can find out some fascinating information about your gold-making.


The Sales Report:

This fortnight, I made 3.3m gold worth of purchases and earned 6.5m gold in sales, which resulted in a profit of 3.2m gold. [Medallion of the Legion] is still selling extremely well. I managed to sell 90 for a total of 433k.

I also managed to sell the recipe [Recipe: Greater Arcane Protection Potion] for 237k. Unfortunately, thanks to the sudden changes to unobtainable recipes in Shadowlands 9.1, now becoming obtainable once more, these recipes will begin to start losing value. For more information regarding these changes, read this post.

Overall, it’s been an incredible fortnight worth of recipe sales, proving that there’s much interest in this market. If you’d like to get involved in this market, consider checking out my guides here.

Unobtainable Classic Recipes Obtainable Again

Unobtainable Classic Recipes Obtainable Again:

Some excellent news was revealed today regarding the imminent release of the Shadowlands 9.1 patch. Classic recipes that were unobtainable following the release of Cataclysm will now be obtainable once more.


How to Obtain These Recipes:

During the Event, Cataclysm Timewalking, it will be possible to purchase classic recipes from the Cataclysm Timewalking vendor called Kiatke. This news is excellent for players that do not own these recipes already. However, this will negatively affect gold-makers who have already invested in these recipes, as their value will drop considerably.


What Recipes Are Available Again?

The following profession recipes will be available for purchase from Kiatke.

Alchemy:
Cooking:
Engineering:
Tailoring:
Leatherworking:

My Recent BoE Recipe Guides:

If you’re familiar with my recent guides regarding BoE Recipes, you will know that these recipes were among the recipes I urged you to invest in if the price was right. However, following today’s news, I encourage you not to purchase these any longer and quickly look at offloading these recipes immediately, as their value will considerably fall.

I will immediately amend my guides to reflect today’s changes.


Blue Post:

For confirmation of today’s news, please check out the blue post below. The image was taken from Wowhead’s recent post.

Fortnightly Sales Report (19 May to 1 June 21)

Fortnightly Sales Report

May 19th to June 1st Fortnightly Sales Report:

Welcome to my fortnightly sales report for May 19th to June 1st. As mentioned in a previous blog, I’ve decided to delay my sales reports by a few weeks to guarantee all data recorded as accurately as possible. Previously, I was missing purchase and sales data, which meant sales reports previous to this one, were flawed.


Changes:

You will notice that as of today, I will no longer use screenshots from my in-game mailbox. Due to different graphical settings with addons, the aspect ratios differed between other clients, which meant cropping sales data looked unprofessional. Instead, I will look at adding selected sales from my TSM Ledger.


TSM Ledger:

If this is your first look at my sales reports, and you’re unaware of the TSM Ledger, it is a great tool available from the TSM website. The Ledger collects your purchase and sales data from the app and gives you the freedom to build reports.

If you’ve not used TSM Ledger yet, and you use the TSM app, give the Ledger a try; you can find out some fascinating information about your gold-making.


The Sales Report:

This fortnight, I made 4m gold worth of purchases and earned 6.9m gold in sales, which resulted in a profit of 2.9m gold. Medallion of the Legion is still selling extremely well. I managed to sell 126 for a total of 545k. Surprisingly, I sold four level 25 TCG Battle Pets for a total of 1.4m gold.

TradeSkillMaster 4.11 Beta

TradeSkillMaster Logo

TradeSkillMaster 4.11 Beta:

On the 13th of June, TradeSkillMaster (TSM) released its new beta version, 4.11. If you’re a premium member, be sure to check your email for your invite. For those interested in signing up, check the information below regarding early beta access.


TradeSkillMaster (TSM)

Suppose you’re a World of Warcraft player that enjoys playing the Auction House (a gold-maker). In that case, TradeSkillMaster (TSM) is, without a doubt, an essential addon for you.

Setting up TSM correctly; creating your groups and operations precisely means gold-making can become an effortless and efficient task.

I’ve been a user of TSM since midway through Cataclysm, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed everything the Addon has to offer. However, I’ve experienced other Auction House Addons like Auctioneer and Auctionator. Unfortunately, neither of them comes close to what TSM offers.


TSM Profiles:

Many players are put off by TSM, as it needs much work at the beginning to get TSM working at its best. However, it’s never been a better time to get involved with the ability to import other player’s profiles.

Please only use profiles or import strings from trusted sources and always backup your original profile before making any changes!

If the thought of setting up TSM is daunting, please do consider checking out BilisOnyxia, who has a complete TSM Profile available on his Patreon. His TSM Profile is perfect for all new and experienced players.

BilisOnyxia is a highly regarded member within r/woweconomy (the World of Warcraft Economy Subreddit) and has a vast knowledge of developing TSM groups and operations.


My TSM Import Strings:

I do have TSM Import Strings that may be of interest to you. These are continuously updated and are available from my Pastebin. These are not as complete as BilisOnyxia’s TSM Profile, but these are an alternative option for you.

Please remember to backup your TSM Profile before importing or making any changes to TSM!


TSM Premium:

As soon as TSM introduced a premium membership, I immediately signed up. Being a premium member was an excellent opportunity for me to give something back to Sapu and his development team. Not only does my membership help future developments, but I also get other perks, including automatic backups and early beta access.


Early Beta Access:

An added benefit of signing up to premium is early access to TSM beta invites. Five days ago, I received my invite and now look forward to checking out TSM 4.11 beta and its new improvements. So, if you’re a premium member, check your email linked to your account to find out how to get started with TSM 4.11.

For players that don’t have a premium membership, you can sign up for beta access via TSM’s beta sign-up page.  Invites are strictly on a first-in-first-out system.


What’s New in TSM 4.11 beta?

For a full run-down of all the new functions and improvements coming in TSM 4.11, check out the TradeSkillMaster blog for a full detailed explanation of all their latest additions.


Want TSM 4.11 beta Without The Queue?

If you’re not a TSM premium member and don’t want to queue for early access to TSM 4.11 beta, it’s not too late to sign up for TSM Premium. So sign up today and get early access to TSM 4.11 beta.


Want To Help Make TSM Better?

If you receive access to TSM beta, always participate and offer feedback via error messages that you may receive/experience. Doing this will help developers fix bugs and errors, ultimately ironing out any potential issues before release.

Alternatively, check out TSM’s Discord channel to report any bugs or issues that you may encounter.


Disclaimer:

TSM has not sponsored or endorsed this post, neither am I an affiliate. Instead, the blog post explains my experiences with TSM and the value of the Addon if you enjoy gold-making. Although TSM is accessible to everyone for free, signing up for TSM premium will offer you extra perks, including guaranteed early beta access.

BilisOnyxia has not approached me to advertise his Patreon; I merely added this within my blog, as I believe it’s the best TSM Profile available!

The Darkmoon Faire

The Darkmoon Faire

The Darkmoon Faire:

This Saturday, 4th June at midnight, sees the return of the Darkmoon Faire to Azeroth. The Darkmoon Faire has some excellent opportunities to get involved with if you enjoy gold-making. Darkmoon Artifacts, Replica Transmog, Darkmoon Companions, Fishing, and farming Darkmoon Rares are a few of the things on offer to you. But, remember, The Darkmoon Faire is only in town for a week, so make good use of your time!


Darkmoon Artifacts:

Darkmoon Artifacts are an essential commodity. These are quest starters that reward Darkmoon Prize Tickets and experience (or gold if you’re at max level). You can turn these Artifacts in once per Darkmoon Faire per character – so don’t forget those alts!

Mid-way throughout the month, when the Darkmoon Faire is out of town, these are posted very cheaply on the Auction House. So this is a great time to purchase these and store them ready for the Faire’s return. If you can’t turn anymore in, consider flipping them on the Auction House for other players.

Check out my blog post on Darkmoon Artifacts here.


Replica Transmog:

The Replica Transmog market is something I post about frequently. These pieces can demand a high price on the Auction House. To purchase these items, you’ll need to acquire Darkmoon Prize Tickets. The easiest method to obtain these is by handing in Darkmoon Artifacts, which I’ve mentioned above.

Remember, Replica pieces have a level requirement you must meet to successfully purchase them from the vendor.

Don’t forget to complete the daily quests at stools scattered on the Island. Completing one of these rewards one Darkmoon Prize Ticket, but you can complete these once per day.

Here’s my blog post regarding Replica Transmog.


Darkmoon Companion Pets:

If Replica Transmog isn’t of interest to you, then maybe some of the companion pets are. These will set you back 90 Darkmoon Prize Tickets each and, if leveled to 25, can earn you approximately 10-15k each on the Auction House, realm dependant. Check The Undermine Journal (TUJ) for prices on your realm!

Unsure what Companion Pets to buy, check my blog post here.


Sila’s Secret Stash:

One of the best ways to obtain Darkmoon Tickets is completing the quest Silas’ Secret Stash. This quest can only be completed once on any one character. Check out my post below for more information regarding Silas’ Secret Stash.

Silas’ Secret Stash


Fishing (Darkmoon Daggermaw):

Darkmoon Daggermaw is a fish you can catch along the shores of Darkmoon Isle. You’ll need to be on the lookout for Shipwreck Debris. You have a chance to successfully cast between 1-2 times, catching a Sealed Darkmoon Crate each time. Simply open the crate to loot Darkmoon Daggermaw and other potentially useful items.

I have success in selling Darkmoon Daggermaw between 25-50g each, depending on the realm. These are useful for the one-time quest Silas’ Secret Stash, a commodity for purchasing items from the vendor Galissa Sundew and a reagent for cooking. Check The Undermine Journal (TUJ) to see where the best value is for your Darkmoon Daggermaw.

My blog post regarding Darkmoon Daggermaw.


Farming Darkmoon Rares:

There are two rares on Darkmoon Isle, the Darkmoon Rabbit, and Moonfang. They both drop a companion pet, a Darkmoon Rabbit and a Moon Moon, respectively.

The Darkmoon Rabbit is worth between 25-30k, but if learned and leveled to 25, you could demand upwards of 40-50k. Moon Moon is worth approximately 15k, but if you learn it and level it to 25, you could demand about 30-35k.

Always check The Undermine Journal (TUJ) for a comprehensive valuation for your item on your realm!


Don’t Neglect Your Professions:

The Darkmoon Faire also has profession quests. Although these have a blue quest marker, these are not dailies; instead, these can only be completed once per Darkmoon Faire visit. However, it would be best not to ignore these because they give you five skill points towards your profession

These quests are ideal if you’re five points away from maxing your profession!


In Other News:

This week, I also completed my BoE Recipe groups. This project took me over seven days to complete and has information on every BoE recipe you can buy and sell on the Auction House. If you’ve ever considered getting involved within the BoE Recipe market, then check out my blog post here. It covers every profession and vendor BoE recipe.

I have created TSM groups that may be of interest to you, these do not have operations, and you can make changes however you wish. Be sure to backup your TSM Profile before importing.

If this is of interest to you, check out my blog post here.

BoE Vendor Recipes

Buying and selling recipes for gold-making

BoE Vendor Recipes:

You probably think there isn’t much value in flipping BoE Vendor Recipes, and you’d be wrong! Flipping recipes from a vendor can be a nice casual addition to your gold-making routines. Many players within World of Warcraft don’t like the thought of traveling around looking for vendors/recipes, especially those of limited availability, and that’s where we as gold makers come in.


BoE Vendor Recipe List:

Unlike my previous recipe posts, I won’t be creating a comprehensive list of all the recipes available; this is because there are 247 recipes available, and the list would be too long. However, please consider checking out my Pastebin for the TSM Group – BoE Vendor Recipes.


Vendor Recipes:

I’ve sorted the Vendor recipes you can purchase with a currency into two groups, Limited and Unlimited. There are also four recipes you can purchase with a commodity; these can prove very profitable, especially the Klaxxi recipes. The recipes are behind an Honored reputation requirement.


Limited Recipes (Currency):

These recipes have a limited amount available from a vendor. Once the vendor has sold out, you will need to wait until the vendor restocks that recipe. Limited recipes from vendors that are not easily accessible can prove to be very profitable. You’re offering a service, be sure to adequately price these recipes!

Unlimited Recipes (Currency):

These recipes have an infinite amount available. However, players will still purchase these from the Auction House if the price is right. After all, players don’t want to travel far if they can get a decent deal on the Auction House – time is money, friend!


Vendor Recipes (Commodity)

As mentioned above, there are four recipes available that you can purchase with a commodity. These commodities are readily available from the Auction House; you’ll need 40x Kyperite and 20x Darkmoon Daggermaw.

Ambersmith Zikk – Klaxxi Quartermaster: (Standing = Honored):

[Plans: Ghost Iron Shield Spike] (20x Kyperite)
[Plans: Living Steel Weapon Chain] (20x Kyperite)

Galissa Sundew (Darkmoon Faire):

[Recipe: Extra Lemony Herb Filet] (10x Darkmoon Daggermaw)
[Recipe: Lemon Herb Filet] (10x Darkmoon Daggermaw)


Buying and Selling Your Recipes:

When valuing your BoE Vendor recipe(s), I advise you to use The Undermine Journal (TUJ) and check the prices based on your realm. If you’d prefer an average price based on the region, I’d recommend using the EU or NA Median Price.


Pastebin:

I have taken the liberty of adding a Pastebin, which holds a TSM Group with the BoE Vendor Recipes. I’ve separated the subgroups as outlined above, and where possible, categorized them by their drop chance. Please remember that I do not add operations to my TSM groups to prevent any potential issues; default operations will automatically be assigned once imported successfully.

Feel free to make any adjustments you wish, but please make sure you backup your profile before importing and making any changes.

BoE Leatherworking Recipes

Buying and selling recipes for gold-making

Leatherworking Recipes:

Welcome to my comprehensive list of BoE Leatherworking Recipes. I have categorized the recipes into two categories, Obtainable and Unobtainable. The Obtainable recipes are those that still drop from mobs. The Unobtainable lists recipes that no longer have a source, or more importantly, are available from a profession trainer instead. I collected this data using Wowhead.

I’ve sorted the lists alphabetically, and the drop rate added is the highest percentage available. However, it’s essential to understand that the difficult to obtain recipes should hold the most significant value. Check The Undermine Journal (TUJ) for the recipe’s valuation.

I’ve also added helpful links to Wowhead if you’d wish to view the recipe(s) in greater detail.


Obtainable:

I’ve compiled a list of 101 BoE Leatherworking Recipes that are still obtainable in-game from killing mobs. Ignore the Buyout Price in the Quick Facts box on Wowhead, as these prices are incorrect. Instead, check The Undermine Journal (TUJ) for a precise valuation.

I have separated the [Recipe: Warbear Harness] into a different subgroup, don’t purchase; this is for your consideration. There is an alternative recipe [Recipe: Warbear Harness] available from the Timbermaw Hold vendor, Meilos, and you’ll need to meet the reputation requirement of Friendly to purchase it.

Due to the ease of obtaining this BoP recipe, I’d recommend not purchasing the BoE Recipe to flip!

Purchase:

Don’t Purchase:


Unobtainable:

There are 32 BoE Leatherworking Recipes in this category, which I’ve separated into two parts. Purchase and Don’t Purchase. Unavailable recipes found in-game that have no source, or alternative method, should be Purchased.

However, unavailable recipes that you can learn from a Profession Trainer, or purchase from a Trader, Do not Purchase these from the Auction House under any circumstance! These recipes have no value whatsoever! Therefore, I have also added these recipes to my TSM to prevent accidentally purchasing them. Make sure you remove all purchase operations for this category!

Purchase:

Don’t Purchase:

Alternative BoP recipe(s):
These recipes are learned from a Profession Trainer:

Recipes available once more via the Cataclysm Timewalking vendor Kiatke in Shadowlands 9.1 (Confirmation here)


Smart Loot:

7 BoE Leatherworking Recipes in this category should be carefully considered before purchasing. These recipes have an alternative BoP recipe, which has a Smart Loot tag. These recipes have a greater drop rate than shown on Wowhead. This is because players that have the Leatherworking Profession and don’t currently have the recipe, have a greater chance of looting these recipes.


Recipes via Quest Rewards:

2 BoE Leatherworking Recipes are available from completing two quests. Consider the prices of these recipes before purchasing. These quests are faction-specific!


Faction Specific Recipes:

Take extra care when purchasing these 16 BoE Leatherworking Recipes, as they’re faction-specific.

Horde:
Alliance:

Buying and Selling Your Recipes:

When valuing your BoE Leatherworking recipe(s), I advise you to use The Undermine Journal (TUJ) and check the prices based on your realm. If you’d prefer an average price based on the region, I’d recommend using the EU or NA Median Price.


Pastebin:

I have taken the liberty of adding a Pastebin, which holds a TSM Group with the BoE Leatherworking Recipes. I’ve separated the subgroups as outlined above, and where possible, categorized them by their drop chance. Please remember that I do not add operations to my TSM groups to prevent any potential issues; default operations will automatically be assigned once imported successfully.

Feel free to make any adjustments you wish, but please make sure you backup your profile before importing and making any changes.

Finally, I remind you that I’m currently restructuring my whole TSM Recipe Groups and plan to share this once completed.

Flawed TSM Ledger Data

TSM Ledger:

TSM Website Logo

Today, I noticed that using the TSM Ledger (via the TradeSkillMaster (TSM) Website) to detail my sales data for my Fortnightly Sales Reports was flawed. If you’ve been checking my updates regularly, you’ll be aware that I use the TSM Ledger to detail the purchases and sales for the previous fortnight. But this data is incorrect.

I assure you that there is no issue regarding the application itself; it was merely an oversight on my part!


Spreadsheet:

As well as using TSM to record my data, I also use a spreadsheet that records gold balances on all my realms. This spreadsheet records increases and decreases per realm, giving me a total gold balance across all my realms. Thus, every fortnight, the total gold made was substantially different from what TSM Ledger recorded.


Discrepancies:

Not only gold unaccounted for, but there were also discrepancies with specific items bought and sold. For example, I’d loot mailboxes with items purchased, yet TSM Ledger had no purchase data for that given fortnight. Then it dawned on me that when I use the TSM Ledger to collect data for that fortnight, it doesn’t include the sales data I made 48 hours after posting auctions from the previous fortnight.


Further Clarification:

For those still unsure what I mean, here are two images. The first image is the TSM Ledger data I posted on my last Fortnightly Gold-Making Report.

I made 6.4m gold in purchases, and 6.7m gold in sales, thus recording a 272k profit.

TSM Ledger for 18.05.21

The second image below is from today (01.06.21) for the same timeframe but clearly shows its sales and purchase data discrepancies compared to the previous image. This discrepancy is because I’ve incorrectly collected data for this fortnight that should’ve calculated towards last fortnight’s data.

The updated data shows 6.7m gold in purchases, and sales of 10.4m gold, thus recording a profit of 3.6m gold. This figure also corresponds with the figures collected via my spreadsheet.

Updated TSM Ledger for 18.05.21

For example, if I reposted expired auctions on Thursday 6th May and made a sale, when I repost my expired auctions and collect my gold next fortnight, the sale will be recorded for the new fortnightly sales data, not the last fortnight. TSM Ledger will do the opposite (because it records data by date), and it’s this that has been a flaw in all my fortnightly gold-making sales reports.


Future Gold-Making Reports:

I’ve decided to delay tomorrow’s fortnightly gold-making report (even though I completed my auctions yesterday) and will post it in two weeks. My thought process is to post my reports two weeks behind, meaning that the data collected for that fortnight will be complete and shouldn’t affect the data for future fortnightly reports.

I will no longer consolidate sales from my mailbox; instead, I will look to do so from the TSM Ledger. However, I still believe it’s best to consolidate these sales into categories, so readers can easily see the profitable markets. Unfortunately, the cut and pastes weren’t too clean, so they were hard to view.


My Apology:

I only realized about these issues this morning, and in keeping with my belief in complete transparency, I felt it was appropriate to post this immediately and offer a full explanation.

This issue was a simple oversight on my part and a result of jumping into something I didn’t fully appreciate until now, and I’m sorry for this. I’ll have clear and concise fortnightly gold-making sales reports again in two weeks; please consider checking them out.

I pride myself on these reports, as they help give those who read them an idea of whether it’s worth operating in a market I share. Flawed data will undoubtedly affect this, and hopefully, with these new changes, reassure you that the markets I operate in are incredibly profitable and worthwhile.

So, again, I apologize, and I’ll strive to do better!

Thanks for reading!

I’ve also added helpful links to Wowhead if you’d wish to view the recipe(s) in greater detail.


Obtainable:

I’ve compiled a list of 34 BoE Engineering Recipes that are still obtainable in-game from killing mobs. Ignore the Buyout Price in the Quick Facts box on Wowhead, as these prices are incorrect. Instead, check The Undermine Journal (TUJ) for a precise valuation.


Unobtainable:

16 BoE Engineering Recipes in this category are Unobtainable that you can learn from a Profession Trainer or an alternative recipe do not Purchase these from the Auction House! These recipes have no value whatsoever! Therefore, I have also added these recipes to my TSM to prevent accidentally purchasing them. Make sure you remove all purchase operations for this category!

Class-Specific Recipes:

Take extra care when purchasing these 11 BoE Engineering Recipes, as they’re Class-Specific. Only players that meet these class requirements can learn these recipes.


Buying and Selling Your Recipes:

When valuing your BoE Engineering recipe(s), I advise you to use The Undermine Journal (TUJ) and check the prices based on your realm. If you’d prefer an average price based on the region, I’d recommend using the EU or NA Median Price.


Pastebin:

I have taken the liberty of adding a Pastebin, which holds a TSM Group with the BoE Engineering Recipes. I’ve separated the subgroups as outlined above, and where possible, categorized them by their drop chance. Please remember that I do not add operations to my TSM groups to prevent any potential issues; default operations will automatically be assigned once you’ve successfully imported any of these group(s).

Feel free to make any adjustments to these groups, but please make sure you backup your profile before importing and making any changes. If you make an error, you can easily revert to a backup.

Finally, I remind you that I’m currently restructuring my whole TSM Recipe Groups and plan to share this once completed.
