We are thrilled to announce that the beta test of TradeSkillMaster 4.11 has begun!
If you’re a TSM Premium member you will shortly be receiving an email inviting you to participate, along with instructions on how to get started.
Additional invites through our Beta sign-up page will be distributed on a First-In-First-Out system, so be sure to sign-up if you’d like to get involved! Otherwise, you can bypass the queue and get instant access by signing up to TSM Premium.
Let’s take a look at some of the major features 4.11 brings!
Shadowlands Profession Support
The biggest upgrade in 4.11 is supporting the new profession system introduced in Shadowlands, which includes optional reagents for your recipes and the various outcomes of those optional reagent combinations – including the base legendary crafted items.
The TSM Crafting UI has the added functionality of applying optional reagents for secondary stats and ilvl, Crafting costs and profits are now accurate for the item variation you have, plus your Crafting Operations and Tasklist will consider the optional reagents required!
Speaking of grouping your items, a new option has been introduced to accommodate the various ways to craft in Shadowlands. In addition to grouping items by their specific variation, and by ignoring all variations, the new option is to only consider the ilvl of the item while ignoring the secondary stats.
This means you can group, for example, ilvl 87, ilvl 151, and ilvl 168 crafted items separately but ignore the secondary stats, then apply distinct Crafting Operations to restock a certain ilvl, and Auctioning Operations to undercut the certain ilvl regardless of the secondary stats. To support this, inventory tracking has also been enhanced to track items more specifically by ilvl rather than by name only.
Group & Item Management
In TSM 4.11 it’s even easier to manage your Groups and move items between them. Now you can drag and drop selected items between Groups, without needing to remove them or have them on hand! Selecting multiple items is also supported. Check this short video demonstration:
Building on the introduction of Themes in TSM 4.10, we’ve added the option to customise the colour palette to your own preferences! Once you’ve found your perfect colours you can export a string to share with your friends to import.
AuctionDB Changes for Retail and Classic
For Classic Era and Burning Crusade Classic players, region-wide sale data is now generated and available via the TSM Desktop Application. This means you can now reference
dbregionsoldperday in your Operations!
For Retail players, this sale data is now also available on Battle Pets! This is particularly useful for those that like to flip pets across realms in your region.
Various under-the-hood tweaks and tuning have been implemented, with an aim to improve stability and reduce lag when crafting, scrolling large tables from Shopping or Browse searches, and syncing data between accounts.
With all the features and enhancements we have introduced in 4.11 (and earlier!), we thought of ways to share and discuss the things we are planning to do in future updates of TradeSkillMaster and get your feedback or input on what is important to you as an every day user of the addon.
As an experiment we have created a Trello board with a public ‘Roadmap’, or a list of ideas and features we would like to introduce to take your gold-making to the next level with TSM. We would love to hear what you think!
Please join our Discord server as per the Get Started instructions, to share your feedback on the 4.11 Beta or report any bugs and issues you encounter.
