WoW Gold Blogger Live Hangout: September 2, 2012

Had a great time (as usual) today on the hangout. Today’s hangout, host per usual by Gold Shields, featured:

Here’s the video, today’s was quite lengthy coming in at nearly 3 hours. Thanks again to SexyJedi/Brandon of Gold Shields for hosting it!

Topics Discussed

Topics discussed today include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Patch 5.0.4.
  • The ink “situation”
    • Bots currently offline
  • Experience changes
  • New TSM app under development by Sapu (look forward to more info on this soon!)
  • Dust of Disappearance
  • Why do you make gold?
  • Raiding
  • Duped items and banning players (ban waves)
  • Jewelcrafting mounts
  • Black Market Auction House
  • Patterns removed from the game
  • Transmogging
  • Pets
  • TradeSkillMaster


So towards the end we got into a discussion about TradeSkillMaster and I feel I didn’t express myself clearly. Yes what Gimp said was right, though I don’t think it’s the most concise way to describe the fallback setting. While yes your fallback setting is the most expensive you post at when no one else is posting, it’s not the only thing that setting is used for and it doesn’t really describe what it does, so I think it’s much better to call it your default price. Also without the “when you’re the only one posting” qualifier it’s not true (obviously, that’s why it’s a qualifier) and it’s a different setting (Max Price) that determines how expensive you will go.

Secondly, and apparently I wasn’t the only one who got confused by what Gimp said either I feel much better about mixing this up, there isn’t any setting in TradeSkillMaster (yet?) to ignore outliers based on price. You can set TSM to ignore certain stack sizes though, and that’s sort of what Gimp was referring too along with the practice of manually looking for outliers. While there’s no setting to ignore price outliers, you can do reset scans which sort of accomplish the same thing.

Thanks for tuning in everyone who joined us on the stream (and those who are going to watch the recording) watch for us next week, same time (3pm eastern)!
