Saving TradeSkillMaster Data In A Database


In my last post I mentioned that I might be clearing out my TSM data in preparation for Mists of Pandaria.

Seasonality Icon WoWuction

WoWuction is a neat little sight that’s been pointed out to me twice now, so I thought I’d take a peak and see what was up. Alto unfortunately beat me too it as I had started this article and set it aside for crunch time. So, at the cost of blowing off a mechanics presentation, …

Now Everyone is Going to Want to be a Blacksmith
