[WoW Classic] TSM Sniping Guide + Full Setup + Sniping Operations
#1
This is the only guide you need to completely set up TSM sniping operations and make it work in Classic WoW.

Remember sniping always comes with a risk, so make sure that you have some idea about the prices of stuff or what you can make before buying stuff and spending your gold. Sniping can be a pretty lucrative way of making gold especially now when people have no idea about the actual value of items and TSM and similar addons do not have a historical price graph.

Protip: If you are looking for historical price data from Vanilla Private servers, check this site: https://www.wow-auctionhouse.com/
This will help you make some informed decision and keep you ahead of the curve when it comes to pricing items. For example, just looking at the price of [Recipe: Savory Deviate Delight] on AH of my classic realm in EU, it's going for as low as 24 silver, but looking at the data from private servers these things go for as much as 180+ gold. There are many such items if you want to dedicate the time.

This guide is written for goblins who want to get a leg up over others, TSM will eventually make a more straight forward system to fetch the values of dbmarket, dbregion, dbregionavg etc. But, until then these import strings and operations do the job pretty well, since you are fetching the data yourself using tsm scan operation mentioned below. 
I have looked on Google and there seems to be no setup guide as of now for Classic WoW TSM Sniper, so you might be one of the few if not the only sniper on your realm. 

As such this guide is written for intermediate TSM users only. Do not PM me if you run into any issues while implementing this. The steps can be followed by even beginners who want to use TSM Sniper in Classic WoW.

1. Setting the minprice variable:

  1. Open the TSM UI by typing “/tsm” in the chat window.
  2. On the top menu, go to Settings.
  3. Select Custom Sources from the left vertical menu.
  4. Under Variable Name, enter the value “minprice“, enter the string below. Press enter once done.
  5. Under custom price source enter the import strings provided below and then press enter.
String for Custom price source:

Make sure you copied correctly, remove any blank spaces at the start or end and then press enter, copy into notepad first if you want or it will give you error.
If you're getting incorrect price error make sure that "minprice" is indeed saved, go back to step 1 and check if you have a minprice variable saved in TSM.
Type "/reload" in the chat once this is done.

3. Getting the values for items:

Since TSM for classic WoW cannot pull the realm auction data from API (as Blizzard hasn't released it for now), you need to do a manual scan of the auction house to feed data to TSM.

This can be done using the command /tsm scan in your chat box.

4. (Optional) Getting Notified in the Background:


  1. Open the TSM UI by typing “/tsm” in the chat window.
  2. On the top menu, go to Settings.
  3. Select Shopping / Sniper from the left vertical menu.
  4. Under Sniper Options -> “Found auction sound" dropdown, select any sound you want.
  5. Make sure in the WoW Sounds Options the setting to enable sound in the background is selected as well.
  6. Type /reload in chatbox once done.
