The Tycoon Gold Guide is one of Manaview’s latest inventions. Itís a new in-game addon that claims to automate the most powerful gold strategies in the game leading to an increase in gold income of about 500%. It helps transform ëgold makingí into a fun, quick, and immensely profitable experience. This is something WoW players have been waiting for since Vanilla and it has the power to completely change the way we make gold.
So, does Tycoon live up to the hype? I’ve received a copy, used it for a week, and will give you my honest review here.
Does it work?
I’ll get straight to what you want to know. Does Tycoon really work? Yes, it absolutely works! They claim you can make 230% more gold by using Tycoon. I found this to be a conservative number. I personally used the addon for several days now and Iíve always managed to open my mailbox to over 500%-700% more gold than I normally get using the exact same strategies by myself.
How Tycoon Works
The idea is simple, yet incredibly powerful. Manaview took the best gold strategies in the game and made an addon that automates the difficult or most time-consuming parts of the strategy. Since itís automated, it basically means they optimized the strategy so youíre more efficient in doing it, resulting in about 5x more gold than you would normally get.
The 5 current strategies included are Gathering, Grinding/Farming, Crafting, Auction House Playing, and Dailies. This is 95% of all gold making strategies used by the WoW community, so almost nothing is left out.
The addon intelligently studies your serverís economy and shows you things like:
– Exactly what strategy will make you the most money
– What item will make you the most money based on its calculations
– The best way to get that item by giving you things like optimized gathering routes or hot farming locations.
– It knows if too many people are using that strategy and will oftentimes tells you to get an item with no competition but high in demand. This means youíre the only one getting that particular item because thereís no competition, resulting in getting more of them. And there is high demand meaning you can sell it at super high prices.
When you startup Tycoon, the first thing you need to do is scan the Auction House to help Tycoon learn your economy. This is super quick and done with a click of a button. This is similar to Auctioneer but itís a much quicker scan that takes no more than 30 seconds to complete. When the scan is complete Tycoon has enough information to do its magic. A window will appear with lists of items ordered from top to bottom by how much Tycoon believes you will make, per hour, if you go for that item.
I’m impressed with how accurately Tycoon is able to give you solid advice on which items will make you the most money. Often times, items that you never thought would make you the most gold per hour will appear at the top of the list. Thatís where Tycoon really comes in handy. It has the ability to scan through an enormous amount of data that would take a human several hours to figure out. People usually skip past the economy studying part and just go straight for the highest level items, but with Tycoon youíll discover those arenít always the items that will make you the most gold per hour.
It knows your economy better than a human ever can, it knows if the market is inflated and knows when there’s too much competition. If situations arenít right to go for one item, Tycoon will give you another one. Itís a good feeling to know youíre always doing the strategy that makes you the most gold possible at that point in time.
Tycoon does more than just tell you the best way to make the most gold. It shows you! If Tycoon tells me to mine say, Cobalt ore, all you need to do is click the “Show me routes” button and it will give you highly optimized mining routes. This creates ant trails around your which guide you through the most populated mining node locations. This feature is great and allowed me to double the amount of ore I typically get mining by myself.
This was an awesome feature added to the Gathering Module and I canít go over all the features in this short review. But all 5 Strategy Modules have some kind of special feature that helps you get the most of that item in the shortest amount of time!
I could only find one bad thing about Tycoon- Sometimes Tycoon will put an item at the top of the Most Profitable list which isn’t in very high demand. It does show you the ìdemandî of the item is low though. So, as long as you pay attention to that and donít go for any items that are low in demand, you should be able to quickly sell it. Otherwise, if you donít mind waiting, you will still sell it eventually.
Tycoon is a truly revolutionary product that is going to change Gold Making forever. Once youíve used Tycoon, attempting to play without it will be nearly impossible. The addon is beautiful and has very few bugs in a new product. With the data, tools, and special features of this addon, it is very hard NOT to make more gold using it. They have gone above and beyond everything you will need to make 500% more gold per hour, or more. Every aspect of the gold strategies included has been enhanced by helpful data or features to help you do it better and faster.
Everything you can possibly need to become a true gold tycoon is right here in this brilliant addon by Manaview.
So, if youíre looking to make more gold – a LOT more gold – I highly recommend checking out the Tycoon Gold Guide. It is by far the best way to make the most gold possible in the shortest amount of time.
