Speed Up Posting With Common Search Terms


In this post we will be going over how to significantly speed up posting of your 83-84 Mists of Pandaria items using a feature of TradeSkillMaster called "Common Search Term".

While this technique can be used for posting other types of items (most commonly Glyphs) it does have a few specific limitations. While I will be focusing this post on how to use it to speed up posting/reposting 83-84 Mists of Pandaria items it also works great for 77-80 Cataclysm items.

Read on past the jump for how to add the "Common Search Term" option to your own 83-83 Mists of Pandaria item groups and beyond.

Calculate Days Needed To Reach A Gold Goal


Today's guest post was written by long-time livestream viewer Zackiz.

Almost a year ago when I started to make gold in World of Warcraft as a meta-game I was disorganized. I felt I needed some sort of spreadsheet to keep an overview of my income progress so I threw something fast together and it was a mess.

Over time I changed it and and made it better. The other day it hit me, maybe there are more folks out there who may want it to use something like this. It has helped me keep my aim straight and kept my morale up when times have been tough. It has even given me some motivation to find more ways to push the income up when it was worth it.
