Welcome to Trading with Zoxy offering you up to date Gold Hints and Tips Watch as out soon as I am Going Self hosted and have a new exciting Website in the making
The guide doesn't have any of those stupid fake 'secrets' that will be gone with the next expansion or content patch... Instead, I walk you step by step through making gold in this game with rock solid, fundamental strategies which will allow you to easily make 300-1000 gold every day while you level. In fact, when the next expansion rolls around, you won't need to buy another WoW gold guide. Yes there will be new items and gear, but the guides I teach you are timeless and that's what makes them so successful with players of all skill levels.
Warcraft Journal is the first magazine dedicated to World of Warcraft. Each month you will get a new magazine full of news, how-to's and in-depth analysis. And you can read it right away from the comfort of your PC or print it if you choose to. It's fully yours and you will have all the World of Warcraft issues collection at one click of a mouse. Once you get access to Warcraft Journal issues, you'll fall in love with the magazine and start counting the days until the next monthly issue arrives. Plus, at any time, you can make suggestions to help us give you the best content possible. Also they offer a Free 30day trial.
We believe that the difference in quality you will find in our guides over our competitors is better experienced than simply talked about. We also know that many of you would prefer to try the guides out before buying them. That is why we now offer a free 1-13 trial version of our Alliance and Horde guides. This is a fully functional version of our guide and are only limited in regards to the max level you can achieve with them. Our all new In-Game Talent Advisor is also included which will instruct you on where to spend your talent points when you level up.

So now as I go off and empty my guild banks remember if you are not using it its dead and you need to do something with it
Friday, 11 February 2011
So lets looks what we have at our Disposal:
Enchanting - 525
Tailor - 525
Inscription - 425 ( lvl 65 chr )
Black smithing ( 260 Lvl 61 Chr)
Problems with the setup ?
-I Don't farm i don't like to go mining so really having mining on a character that is more of a bank alt now is not worth it .
- Black smithing , once again There is a issue I need to add 4 levels to the character and also get the Blacksmithing up and then start producing twink gear . I currently just have the character doing nothing with 3k saronite in the bank
The other issue is i currently have 2 free profession slots on alts i am thinking of setting one up with leather working but i have no plans to level them up to 85 any time soon
I Think I have hot the heart of the problem here , I am not actually using the addons I have done guides on .
Let me give you a example Inventorium
It will allow me to keep track of stock levels and then notify me when I am running under threshold on items.
Will Queue up items that are in a restock queue for you .
So what am I doing wrong ?
Very simply I am not planning and this is what I must do I am just using the addons to make items on hand or items in restock queue based on 50g profit .
How To fix it ?
I think I need to sit back and look at this like a proper business model and look at a proper work flow process .Lets Break this down into each profession that i currently have but they should all follow a simple model .
I think this is going to vary as with wow there are different ways to get goods , buy off the AH or go out and farm them yourself.One of the most efficient ways is to get farmers to send them to you so I will look at ways to get farmers and items sent to you COD
This is going to take alot of planning I need to check out what items I want to have in stock them work out the raw mats for them. Then I Plan to make 3 of each item and then keep the mats for 3 of each of those items ready .
Crafting the product
This is actually the easy bit with a great range of addons to choose from TSM , Skillet and many others .
The main Aim here is to have a daily time when i make all my crafted goods with minimal effort
Selling the Product
I will be using TSM to sell the items as I will need to setup them up in groups most of this is already done .
Well thats what needs to be done time to get started .
Would you do it any differently ?
Well time to empty out my guild banks and work on the next post on improving the system
While working in my Previous RL job that i got made redundant from ( so I am looking for new job so if you know of anything let me know in based in London ) I used to do a lot of process improvement . This got me thinking what is my current gold making process and is it actually efficient .
First I decided to look at my Banking Setup .
Bank alt 1 -
Recipes,Pets and odds and sods
4 Tab guild bank ( full )
Bank ( full )
Bank Alt 2
Scrolls and Green items
3 Tab Guild bank ( full )
Bank ( full )
Bank Alt 3
Gems and Other JC items
4 Tab Guild Bank ( full )
Bank Alt 4
2 Tab Guild bank (not full )
Bank Alt 5
Blacksmith , and Leather
2 Tab Guild bank (Full)
Whats Wrong with it ?
Well all my Guild Banks are Full , I have a large amount of Stock that I am not Actually Selling its just dead money sitting there . So A big job i need to do is go into my banks and sort all the items out and make sure i have one of each on the AH .
Splitting over alts ?
I am Still a fan of this as i can clearly see who is selling what and help separate the markets .
Do you horde in your guild banks ?
Do you have multiple bank alts ?
Next to look at my crafting and how i deal with it .

Bid- No Really Bid
If you just read one of them this is the one BID , it really is as simple as that .
There are so many items on the AH that have low bids and people just ignore them , So have a look on the ah and bid .
One great way to do this is do a full scan of the Auction house with auctioneer then go into the Search tab and Click on the resale search , then bid on all items under 1g . You will be surprised how quickly your stock and gold will increase by doing this daily .
Buy late in the day
Go shopping on the AH at the end of the day or early morning -
The Theory is that the main play time is from 6pm to about10 pm in the evening , so what happens before people log of they go to the AH and sell .
- This then drives down the price as people just list to sell
- So you should see the bottom of the price curve last at night or early in the morning
Don't Sell with Auctioneer
I am not Saying Never sell with auctioneer just remember the Previous point , if you sell with auctioneer and just use the appraiser function then you will list your item the lowest and your item will sell .
But why not to sell it like that ?
You don't need to be the cheapest to sell it , if the item is a high volume item then its going to sell anyway and why list it lowest when just by waiting your going to get a better price .

Its not often that a Addon comes with such good documentation i was just about to start writing a guide about how to setup and use it and then Zerotorescue told me he had already done one , What can i say wow its great so here it is . I will be doing a post as well with further hints and tips but have fun setting this up and as here is the Great setup Guide
- For item counts you need an item count addon such as DataStore (included with Altoholic) or ItemCount.
- For auction values you may want an auction database addon such as Auctioneer, Auctionator, AuctionLite, AuctionMaster or similar. This is optional though and Inventorium can function without them (but it won’t display any auction values).
- For queuing you may want a trade-skill window addon such as AdvancedTradeSkillWindow, Cauldron, GnomeWorks or Skillet. This is also optional and Inventorium can function without any of them (but the crafting functionality will be limited).
- “Do not alert at” was set to a raiding character (“Zerotorescue”) because I only require notifications on my banking characters.
- “Include in local item data” had “Auction House” unchecked.
- “Always show auction value” was toggled on because I like seeing the value of items, even though I don’t filter my crafting based on it.
- “Include guild bank data” had a raiding guild unchecked, because the contents in that guild bank are not mine and should not be used in item counts.
- Track at (for hiding groups)
- Processing speed (slider at the summary window, for increasing the caching speed)
- Always show auction value (to also cache the auction value even though this isn’t used for any filters, this increases time required to cache all item data)
- Minimum local stock
- Minimum global stock
- Show in summary when below (hide the item if you have more than X percent of the required stock)
- Price threshold (minimum auction value required for the item to be queued or shown)
- Hide when below threshold (if checked, the above will also function in the summary, otherwise it only works when queuing)
- Track at
- Restock target
- Bonus queue
- Don't queue if I only miss
- Price threshold
- Crafting addon
- Vendor recipes
- Ink (to sell at the auction house)
- Dungeon materials (such as reagents for spells)
- Track at
- Restock target
- Bonus queue
- Don't queue if I only miss
- Parchments (e.g. keep a stack of each parchment in your bags and 1 or 2 additional stacks in your bank for refilling)
- Vanity pets (e.g. keep 2 of each in your bags and additional in your (guild) bank)
- Glyphs (e.g. keep a stack in your bags and another stack in your (guild) bank)
- Gems (e.g. keep 2 of each gem in your bags and additional stock in your mailbox)
- Flasks, bandages, other raiding equipment
- Track at
- Minimum local stock
- Include in local item count
- Auto refill from storage
- Skip the confirmation window for storage refilling (located at the “Extra” category)
- Track at
- Do not alert at
- Minimum local stock
- Alert when below local minimum
- Minimum global stock
- Alert when below global minimum
- Stock scan speed (located at the “Extra” category)
- Zerotorescue (Al’Akir-EU) – main developer & manager

Inventorium keeps track of selected items in your inventory and can provide a summary to quickly get an overview of your current stock. It also provides profession queuing, storage refilling and merchant restocking functionality to make it a lot easier to keep enough inventory with you at all times.
Ok so what does that actually mean ?
You can decide on a stock amount for both your crafted and vendor items and then queue them up to be crafted .
I remember the first time I got APM and went how do I set this up . I will be honest it made me not want to actually carry on , But there are instruction both in the config and a PDF in the addon folder doc . So as with any of these powerful addons its going to take some time to setup and I will be doing a guide for it .
- IT does a scan when u log in and tells you what items you have in stock are .
- you can then queue those items to be crafted
- Export Your Data
- Import A back up
- Create a back up
- Premade groups for Items ( really amazing )
Stuff I didn't like
Well its Just come out of Beta into a Release stage and I stilll think it has some work to go .The big one for me is i cant export my groups over to APM so I would have to create them manually
So there are a lot of really nice features but it will take some getting used to and a while setting up this up .It is a very good inventory tool and interfaces with the crafting very well queuing up all the items to make .I think this will become one of my main addons if not for crafting but for items like vendor recipes and the such but I might even use it for crafting and then use TSM or APM for my auctioning .
I will be back tomorrow with a full Guide on how to use it so you can see in more detail what it does and how to use it.

What the Competition going to be ?
It's simple submit a link or a blog to my Gold Resource .

Also I Want non Gold blogs too .
Full details will be out in the next few days so start looking find those great blogs and posts .
How To use the new Feature
Creating a new Group -
Very Simply Just as you would create a group instead create a category I would suggest that this be your crafting profession EG Enchanting
Open up the Crating settings and press Create Auctioning Groups .
Then Select the Category you want to add the item to and also then Select how to add Crafts to Auctioning All in Individual Groups .
In a Category : WE will be using a Category override setting for the items
All In Individual Groups : Each item can be priced as a unique item rather then as a bulk group
All we need to do now is setup the Threshold and Fallback Options for them..
Go into the Category Options set the previous settings as you want then et the Threshold and the Fall back to % of Crafting , What that does is overrides the who groups to price each item dynamically based on % of crafting costs rather then set prices .
This was taking hours to do but now its really easy and has made my life about 100% easier getting my crafts setup
