Looking for awesome gold making content from Faid? Well, NerfFaids is still going but it's moved, so head on over to the new site for tons of WoW gold making news and views:

Don't worry, just this blog's last post, not Faid's last post. I'm upgraded to a real domain and all of that, so let's get this move underway!
When I first created NerfFaids I did not anticipate it ever becoming anything beyond a public journal for my own gold making. I never thought there would be fans or any reason I may need to give out the URL and so the URL was always clunky. "Uh, it's nerffaids.blogspot.com but that's with a double f and Faid is spelled weird . . ." Just don't really flow, does it? Let's not even start on the fact that it caused people to refer to me as Faids more often than not!
Thanks to generous donations from fans (if you'd like to chip in check out the widget up top!) I was able to register a domain. Clockwork Riot? Yeah, it's a bit nonsensical, but so is my blog so that's alright. Plus it just sounds badass, which also describes my blog.
Don't worry, I'm not about to change my content; you can expect the same quality Faid-content here, it will just look prettier and be easier to direct people to the site. NerfFaids will no longer be updated. Don't worry, if you ever need to reference anything or just want to relive past memories the entire blog will still exist at nerffaids.clockworkriot.com for your viewing pleasure.
I've also renamed my twitter and created a new Youtube account to mesh with the new domain. Be sure to follow/subscribe and all that good stuff at the links below to stay up to date on any Faidnews from here on out. I will be making my "Best of Nerf Faids" videos available on the new Youtube channel in the coming weeks and will also be publishing all of my new gold making videos there, so be sure you're following!
So what do you need to do?
Here's a quick to-do for all Faidfans so you can stay with me through the move:
Thanks, I hope you like the changes as much as I do!

A while back I made a post on the Consortium forums containing importable TSM shopping lists for Keelhaul's Cloth, Mail, and Plate mog armor recommendations. However, there were some issues with it. For starters, it was a full list. It included things like pants which wouldn't even show under the robes, tons of bracers that wouldn't show, etc. Also, there was no leather list.
This morning I decided to completely redo my shopping lists. I completely deleted my original lists and began recreating them now that I know a bit more about mog selling.
What I Used
The lists are almost entirely based off of the lists by Keelhaul, farli_wow, and EpicPennyPouch which can be found in Power Word Gold's Hatchery. Here are the original lists, if you would like to take a look at them: Cloth, Leather, Mail, Plate.
What I Did
My previous effort to make the lists which resulted in the Consortium post was essentially taking the entire list and everything in every set and making it importable into TSM. It was very helpful as a starting point but many people found themselves filling up on bracers, ugly hats, and cloth pants that they don't need.
When creating the importable version of the leather list, and in revamping every other armor type, I was much more discerning this time around. I removed almost every bracer and simple-looking hat or belt. Most cloth pants and shoes are not in this list, nor are most simple looking shoulders. To put it simply I included the sets that looked best or most unique, and the most important pieces of those sets. Many lower tier sets, or sets that look so plain or similar to many other sets were removed altogether. I trimmed the fat, so to speak.
Some items that are very rare and sell very well on your server may have been removed; every server is different. I tailored these lists with my own experiences in mind (e.g. the Lord's set was removed since I have a million of those sitting around, too common for my tastes!) and while the armor may be one-size-fits-all this list probably isn't. You may want to use these lists as a starting point to add or trim to work for you.
Leather sets were an interesting animal. They have many sets that look almost identical but are different colors. (Chieftain's Set shares a skin with several others in the list.) I included all the different colors and types that share a color. Understand when buying and selling though that one item may have a much more common item that's virtually interchangeable; this is especially apparent with the leather belts that appear to have studs or rivets in them, like in the Chieftain's Set previously linked. I included them but buy at your own risk!
How to Import These Lists
I made a short (~2 minute) video about importing lists to walk you through the process. If you're anti-video you can also check out the first link in this post to my Consortium thread which includes a screenshot walkthrough.

I finally had the chance to get together with Jim from Power Word Gold and get my settings all figured out and we were able to get my stream up and running! So be sure to follow me on twitch.tv for live gold making videos as they happen. You can participate and ask questions and see how I play in real-time!
I did my first stream this morning, thank you to everyone who participated. I did go back and delete the saved file I'm afraid. The reason being is that in my noobness to streaming I did two very bad things: For a brief moment my login name appeared and then I accidentally said half my password as I typed it in. So, naturally, zee evidence had to be destroyed!
I intend to record future streams and embed them for those who can't make it to the live recordings but I do invite everyone to come participate in them, they're a lot of fun. (Follow me on Twitter for up-to-the-minute updates on when I start streaming.)
