How to Set Up the TSM 4 Sniper

Unbanster Info & Tips, WoW 5 Comments

As you probably know, we’re nearing the release of the TSM 4, and the closer we get to it, the more beta invites the TSM team has issued to their signed up WoW players!

If by the time you’re reading this article TSM 4 hasn’t yet been released and you want to apply for a beta invite, make sure to do it here!

Now, let’s get back to business, namely setting up the TSM 4 sniper!

Setting up TSM 4 Sniper

If you’ve already upgraded from TSM 3 to TSM 4, you probably know how well and smooth the process went, and that’s an awesomely nice and professional thing coming from the TSM team! Everything you needed, custom operations, groups and shopping lists have successfully transitioned from TSM 3 to TSM 4.

However, for me at least, everything transfered perfectly but the sniper, which was reset to default, but that’s understandable given its rework and upgrade.

So, without further ado, here’s how to set up the TSM 4 sniper!

  • Open the TSM Core options by typing “/tsm” in-game;
  • On the horizontal top menu, go to Operations;
  • Select Sniper from the left vertical menu, and click on #Default;
  • Under Below custom price, replace the current value with:

check(minprice - 100000g, 90% minprice, check(minprice - 50000g, 80% minprice, check(minprice - 10000g, 60% minprice, check(minprice - 5000g, 50% minprice, check(minprice - 1000g, 30% minprice, check(minprice - 500g, 20% minprice, check(minprice - 50g, 10% minprice)))))))

Note
When you copy/paste the Custom Price formulas, the “minus” sign can turn out to be different, so make sure to change it to the “-” sign from your keyboard once pasted inside TSM if you’re experiencing issues. Thanks Jeff for pointing that out!
  • Press ENTER (on the keyboard) to apply the replaced value.

Changing the minprice custom source for TSM 4 Sniper

In order for the above TSM 4 Sniper string to work properly, we also need to edit the “minprice” Custom Source, and we’ll detail that here.

  • Once again, open the TSM Core by typing “/tsm” in-game;
  • On the horizontal top menu, go to Settings;
  • Select Custom Sources from the left vertical menu;
  • Under Variable Name, enter the value “minprice“;
  • To the right of the minprice value, under Custom Price Source, enter the value:

max(first(min(DBHistorical, DBRegionMarketAvg, DBRegionHistorical), min(DBGlobalMarketAvg, DBGlobalHistorical)), VendorSell)

  • Press ENTER (on the keyboard) to apply the replaced value.

It’s recommended that you do a “/reload” after configuring the TSM 4 Sniper and before using it, to make sure everything registered properly.

Now, you’re all set and ready to use the TSM 4 Sniper and get yourself some sweet deals, but you might be forgetting something. What’s that, you’re asking?

Adding a TSM 4 Sniper sound when finding an auction

If you’ve been using the wrong TSM 4 Sniper configuration up until now and kept finding bad deals, it’s understandable why you never added a Sniper sound. However, with the above TSM 4 Sniper settings, you definitely want to have a sound alert when the sniper finds an auction, to further minimize the risk of forgetting to check it, so here’s how to add a TSM 4 Sniper sound!

  • Open the TSM Core by typing “/tsm” in-game;
  • On the horizontal top menu, go to Settings;
  • Select Shopping / Sniper from the left vertical menu;
  • Under Sniper Options -> “Found auction sound, select any of the notifications sounds within that drop-down list.

This is it! Now you’re good to go, so open up the Auction House and the TSM 4 Sniper will come up by default. All you need to do to start it is to click on the Run Buyout Sniper button and be on the lookout for some awesome deals to flip!

      Are you sure you’ve pasted it correctly? It worked for me and other players, so it’s nothing wrong with it. Maybe you forgot to close a bracket.

      Here it is again (all in one line):

      max(first(min(DBHistorical, DBRegionMarketAvg, DBRegionHistorical), min(DBGlobalMarketAvg, DBGlobalHistorical)), VendorSell)

    2. OK, it seems if you copy/paste if from the page the “-” are not minus signs. I replaced them in my editor and it worked.
