Shadowlands TSM Import Strings

Good morning guys. With Shadowlands releasing tonight, this is my final update to my complete Shadowlands TSM Import String. Tonight will be, without a doubt, a long one, with many players rushing to hit level 60 or max those professions in preparation to making lots of gold. If this is your first expansion for gold-making, be assured that the economy will be very volatile over the coming days/weeks; adapt as the expansion progresses to stay ahead of your competition.

Missing Pets Added!

Thanks to an update released by BilisOnyxia on his Reddit post, I could withdraw the pets from his level 1 and level 25 Battle Pet groups and add the missing ones to mine last night. I know many of you may have already imported the string to use on BETA and already made changes, but rest assured that you can still import the newly updated string and add what you need by only importing the items not already grouped. Just untick the ‘already grouped items‘ option at the bottom as outlined below.


BilisOnyxia TSM Profile

Before I get carried away, I just wanted to remind you all that if you want a complete Shadowlands TSM profile with Shopping and Auctioning operations, please consider checking out BilisOnyxia’s Patreon. If you opt for his Tier 2 plan, you can access his complete TSM Profile. BilisOnyxia does an incredible amount of work within the gold-making community and is undoubtedly the best person to seek advice from regarding TSM Shopping and Auctioning operations.


My Updated TSM Strings

If you’d like to try my Shadowlands TSM strings instead, please check out the information below to get started.

If you intend to import these into retail World of Warcraft, you will need to wait until Shadowlands releases tonight. Failure to adhere to this will result in issues (e.g. No data imported). However, these strings can be imported into World of Warcraft BETA immediately if you have access and want to adjust the groups to your preference before Shadowlands releases.

I have created two separate strings, the only difference is the Battle Pets groups as explained below. Please only pick one option that suits your preferred setup!

TSM String Option one:

This string has Battle Pets grouped alphabetically, with information outlining each pet’s origin, as outlined below. You’ll recognize the setup if you already have my profile from the previous expansion.

TSM String Option Two:

The alternative string, has Battle Pets ungrouped with no further information. This is ideal for those that don’t want all the fuss and the ease of moving Battle Pets to your own preferred setup.

Complete Shadowlands Import String (Ungrouped Pets)


Remaining Groups and Subgroups:

As mentioned above, the remaining part of the profile is identical on both strings. If you’d like to see how the groups look, here’s an image outlining the groups and subgroups. If you’ve already imported my previous TSM Profile (Battle for Azeroth), You can see, once imported, you can easily drag and drop each group and subgroup to the previous profile.


Acknowledgements:

Without the people mentioned below, sharing their knowledge, time, and hours of experience within World of Warcraft BETA, I wouldn’t have completed this string as quickly as I did. Please take a moment to view the list of people that have created guides and shared information that has ultimately helped create this string, thank you!

Please drop by their socials or guides and offer any feedback, ratings that will help towards rewarding them for their hard work.

Before I go:

Have fun tonight, stay hydrated and more importantly, enjoy the long-awaited content, that we’ve all been yearning for. I wish any of you with any World First goals the best of luck – hopefully Blizzard hasn’t pushed anymore last minute nerfs that intend to hinder you, especially leveling to 60.

If you do succumb to any issues following the import of either of the strings above, please do contact me, and be precise on the string you’ve imported, the issue you’re receiving. If your import has no data, make sure you import this to retail World of Warcraft once Shadowlands has officially released. Be aware that TSM has difficulties with ElvUI, hence why my gold-making toons have Blizzard default UI.

TSM4.10 Released

On September 6th TradeSkillMaster (TSM) released their new version 4.10, and it’s better than ever. I covered some of the new features on my last post, feel free to check it out. If you haven’t downloaded TSM yet, don’t delay any further. Click the image above to get started.

With the changes to importing and exporting, I’ve recently updated my TSM Import Strings. Before importing, follow the directions precisely. Failure to do so could lead to issues. All strings have no operations to prevent any potential problems. You can easily create your own shopping and posting operations using custom strings. Once you’ve created these, apply them to each group. TSM does have default price sources, but if you want to make your own and unsure how to, check out their guide, Custom Strings.

If you experience any issues after following the advice precisely, then please contact me, and I will look into the strings. Any errors concerning TSM, please contact them via the error pop-up window in-game or their Discord channel.

I’m In Awe Of TSM4 BETA

It’s been a very chaotic few weeks, so I’ve not blogged much up until today. I’m currently sorting out my new website, which will go into greater detail of my day to day activities concerning gold-making in World of Warcraft. Added to this, I recently got invited to the new TSM 4.10 BETA wave, and (to rub salt in the wounds), I inadvertently got invited to Shadowlands BETA too. I hope to have the new website up and running in the next week or so. Due to time restraints, I cannot participate in the Shadowlands BETA, but I’ve decided to take advantage of TSM’s 4.10 Beta instead, as reviewed below.

TSM4.10 BETA


Themes, Dashboard & Ledger:

TSM BETA BLOG

As soon as you’ve successfully installed and loaded up the game, the first thing you’ll notice is the new sleek look of TSM. Within the settings (Appearance), we can customize this further by changing the themes; this, in my opinion, is an excellent addition. Some of the colors appear strange, but this could be my filters within the game, as I’m colorblind. As you’ll see above, the graph is a lot easier on the eyes, and from what I’ve read up, the information obtained for the dashboard and ledger is a lot more accurate now than the previous TSM version. We can change the timeframe within the graphs, to give us a detailed look at our profit and losses.

Opinion: Excellent addition. Even with colorblindness, some of the themes are excellent. Tell me a gold-maker that doesn’t want to see graphs outlining their progress!


Groups, Operations & Search Feature:

TSM BETA BLOG 1

When creating a new group and searching for items, it’s never been easier. We can effortlessly move and adjust our groups, and the new base group gives us the ability to search for new items by inputting search conditions into the box, as I’ve highlighted above. For example purposes, I used the search function to look for Battle Pets. As you can see, this returned all the battle pets I currently don’t have assigned to a group.

Adding and adjusting operations to groups is a lot easier too. We now get a search box pop-up when adding or changing operations to a group. Instead of needlessly scrolling through all the operations, we can use the search function instead and promptly assign an operation we desire. If you head over to the operations tab, you will also see all the groups assigned to a given operation.

Opinion: As I’m sure you’re aware, I love creating groups with plenty of sub-groups, the ability to keep them up-to-date by adding new items when added to the game, will no doubt be a game-changer. The ease of doing all this will allow many to create their very own profiles!


Shopping & TSM Sniper:

Browsing the Auction House has also had some improvements. The ability to pause and purchase items during a scan, so you don’t miss out on lucrative deals now. We also have the addition to buy items in bulk. Again, as shown above, you can see on the right, we can now select buyout on items, and we’ll get a pop-up that allows us to buy a more significant quantity. Before TSM 4.10 this was only achievable via the wow’s default user interface.

You will also notice above that there’s a return of TSM Sniper. However, I’ve not used this myself yet! But I’m sure many will be happy with its return.

Opinion: For me, the most significant change was the ability to finally buy bulk quantities of items, without unnecessarily needing to use the wow ui instead. Others will undoubtedly rejoice at the return of sniper, and understandably so.


Change Log & Sources Explained

For a detailed summary of the changes with TSM 4.10 BETA please check out TSM’s change log.

With the addition of new price sources and the removal of (Use Smart Average), I urge anyone to check out TSM’s price source guides below. These will help you understand and maybe create your own price sources. Creating your own price sources will give you the edge on your competitors when posting your auctions on to the Auction House.

New complete Battle Pet Import String

Before I leave, I’d like to add, that the battle pet import string created/shared by @Billisonyxia on Twitter, has been updated by myself, by removing the non-existent common and uncommon battle pets within his list. I used warcraftpets to cross-reference the pets that weren’t obtainable. I have added this complete list to my Pastebin. Please can you show your support to Bilis, by checking out the links below to show your appreciation for the original content!

The update has every battle pet, sorted by;

  1. Rare
  2. Uncommon
  3. Common
  4. Grey (Ignored Variation) (Ignores level, breed & rarity)

Important: Please read first!

If you want to buy and sell pets based on their level and rarity, DO NOT assign operations to option 4: Grey (Ignored Variation) group. Instead, apply your operations to options 1, 2, 3.

If you have absolutely no interest in the pets level or rarity and want to flip it, assign operations to option 4: Grey (Ignored Variation) group and DO NOT apply operations to the first 3 options. Failure to follow these steps will incur issues when shopping and posting pets on the Auction House.

Further Clarification:
Option 4: These are the default pet item ID’s that will ignore level, breed, and rarity.

Please back-up your current profile before importing, in case of any issues. I have successfully imported this, with no issues. However, if you do experience any issues, or you would like to offer some feedback, please feel free to contact me: grahranswowgold@gmail.com and I will respond at the earliest convenience.

I hope you enjoyed this post. With any luck, you’ll hear from me again within the week, promoting my new website.

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.

tsm battle pet image for blog

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.**

Legion 101 BoE Import String for TSM3

Hello and long time no see to my avid readers oh and of course, my new ones 😉

Apologies for my absence, but you were warned…lol. As I guessed, time has indeed been very precious and with any free time available, I’ve been trying to play some of the new content… that is 7.3 – The Tomb of Sargaras and dominate the AH. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the new expansion and I’ve made a lot of gold in the process.

With the boring stuff out of the way, I have a little treat for you all, which you might be interested in. Today I bring you my import string for LegionBoEs. As you know, I’ve been buying and selling LegionBoEs throughout Legion and have made millions of gold doing so. If you don’t believe me, feel free to check out my Twitter posts via the hashtag #LegionBoEs and you’ll see a lot of my sales. I’m currently sitting at approximately 56m liquid gold and well over 100m worth of LegionBoEs in stock as of 21.08.17.

If you would like to use my import string, please click HERE and you’ll be directed to my Pastebin.

Disclaimer: Please also be aware, that this is not complete and its very unlikely that anyone has a complete list. Also, this list has been created with some item IDs from Muffins (aka @TheOneOnDruryLn) whom works within the TSM team. So many thanks to him for his hard work. If you would like to check his GitHub, for future item ID’s then here’s a link to his page HERE.

Directions for use:
One: Backup your TSM3
Two: Open your TSM Addon in-game and create a group called Legion BoEs
Three: Click on Import/Export Tab and Import the string
Four: Once Imported, in the chat box, type /reloadui (This will update your TSM files).

Once you’ve followed those steps, you should have a group looking something like this;

blog pic for legion boes

Open up a specific ilvl (as shown above) to show 4 groups; Normal, Socket/Extra Stat, Leech and Leech & Socket. As this isn’t complete, some may not have four groups within, but you can update this at a later date. The 4 groups are straight forward to understand, but I will clarify below.

Normal = Normal item with no bonus stat or socket
Socket/Extra Stat = An item which contains a socket, bonus stat or both
Leech = Item contains Leech (Expensive)
Leech + Socket = Leech and a socket (Very expensive)

Creating your Price Settings: You will need to decide what price settings you wish to add to each given group. Normal, will obviously be regarded as a low commodity, Socket/Extra Stat (i.e Speed) are useful, even just the socket alone is useful, due to the increase in your main stat. An item with Leech or Leech+Socket will demand a higher asking price, so set your prices to reflect this. Do this for every group and ilvl. Please also consider that realms have different economies and populations, so items hold different valuations, so you may need to change your price strings dependant to each realm.

For anyone questioning, why LegionBoEs are so expensive and in high demand, it’s simply because of the stats you get on the gear. With Legion, mobs scaled to your level, so if you’re lvl 101 with ilvl 830 you’ll be a 101 with stats of a 110 with ilvl 830, you’re easily out gearing the content for your level. This makes it viable for people to gear out a 101 (preferably a Boomkin) and boost players to 110 via dungeons. A lvl 101 ilvl 830 that know’s the dungeon, can easily boost four players to 110 and can make a lot of gold doing so. Obviously, you need to invest in the gear first, but the reward is amazing. If you don’t know Umren, then check out his video below, he’s running a Frost DK in this one, but it’s simply showing you what you can do. Frost DK is a good class, but I’d still recommend a Boomkin.

Armory: Umren

Important Reminder: TSM doesn’t recognise the different ilvls, so accounting wont show the correct purchase/sale data. This will have to be done manually by yourself. When you find an item, that isn’t within a group, simply go to the specific ilvl of your item within TSM, find the group that your item will belong to and select the import tab and as long as the item is in your inventory, it will show up in the ungrouped items, simply add it to your groups. The same strategy as importing level 25 BattlePets into TSM.

I’ve tried to add as much information as possible, apologies in advance if I’ve missed anything. I’ve credited everyone for their work, please drop by to them to show your appreciation, with their help, we get to do what we’re doing today!

That is all, if you have any issues, questions or need advice, I’ll try and help where possible. Any TSM issues, should always be taken to the TSM website. Copy any error codes you receive as they should help clarify your issues. Any other questions or advice, feel free to DM me on Twitter!

Thanks for reading and good luck!
