Tycoon Quick Guide
It's highly recommended that you download an addon that give you long term market data. We recommend The Undermine Journal. They update it every few days with new data.
You can use your ingame scanner as well, but players who post Grey Pants for thousands of gold can really screw with the numbers.
- Load up Tycoon by clicking on the Dynasty Icon (Mana Flask) on your minimap ring. Then select the Tycoon Icon.
- If you're using The Undermine Journal, then select the "Data Source" dropdown box and select either TUJ (Realm) or TUJ (Global). Tycoon will now use TUJ for calculations.
Auctions give you a quick list of items which can be bought and resold for quick profit.
Instances takes the average run time, what mobs are in the instance, the number of mobs in the instance, what each mob drops, then takes the drop rate from Wowhead and calculates it all together to get an average "worth" of each mob. This gives you a very accurate estimate of how much each instance will make.
Professions will take the costs to make every recipe if you purchased all the mats from the Auction House. Then it will check the value of the finished product to determine if it's profitable. Then it will tell you how many recipes are profitable for each profession and the total amount of gold you could potentially make.
Crafting will tell you what recipes you can make for profit using the same calculations used for Professions.
Farming includes both Gathering and Farming Hotspots.
- Gathering: Takes the average number of nodes found per hour, the amount of material found per node, and the current value of the material on the market and calculates it to determine how much gold per hour you can make.
- Farming: Takes the average number of mobs you can kill per hour, what items drop from the mob, and the drop rate of all the items and calculates it to determine how much gold per hour you can make.
