Part 3: How to Snipe Better

 

How to Snipe Better

In part 2 I showed you a way to bait snipers into buying vendor items for 2-300%.

TSM Sniper sees the items posted at lower than market value and recommends the items to be bought.

Sniper bait mostly targets AH bots and nubs who have cut n paste TSM strings without looking to understand what they are doing.

 

If you don’t want to get caught out by these sort of sneaky tactics, you need to set up your TSM sniper with an even better string!

Blindraptor on Reddit posted this new string.

Keep your minprice custom price the same, and change your sniper string

from

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)))))))

 

to

first(check(minprice - VendorBuy, VendorBuy),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))))))))

 

Blindraptor says

The problem I was having is that my sniper was bringing up a lot of vendor purchased items. These items would have a listed market value high enough to trigger my sniper string when they were posted at more reasonable prices. One common example is the dragonhawk hatchlings. People posting them for 10g would trigger sniper, even though they cost 50s from the vendor.

Selling vendor items to bait snipers? Who would do such a thing. Not us *wink wink*

 

TSM4 Bid Sniper

Before we finish with the topic of TSM4 Sniper setup, lets look at the new function for TSM4.

Bid Sniper works like Buyout Sniper, in that it has a default setting and can work right out the box.  Your Sniper operation will work for Bid Sniping too, so you don’t need a separate string.

Because who wants to pay 100% of an auction price when you can bid on the auction and get it cheaper!

Start up TSM Bid Sniper the same way you start TSM Buyout Sniper
