How do I filter items in my Groups or the Base Group?

This one is relatively self-explanatory. You can type the full or partial name of an item.

Silk Cloth

This filter will match Bolt of Embersilk Cloth, Bolt of Silk Cloth, Embersilk Cloth, and Silk Cloth. You can use the exact qualifier to only find items whose name matches exactly, however the exact qualifier only works with Shopping searches.

Silk Cloth/exact

Required Level Range

You can specify a minimum required level or a minimum and a maximum required level. If you would like to specify only a maximum required level, you can just use a minimum required level of 0.


Item Level Range

Item Level Range filtering works identical to Required Level Range filtering above, however, the numerical values are preceded by the character "i".




Class filtering corresponds to one of the 11 main AH categories.

  • Weapon
  • Armor
  • Container
  • Consumable
  • Glyph
  • Tradeskill (previously Trade Goods)
  • Recipe
  • Gem
  • Miscellaneous
  • Quest
  • Battle Pets




SubClass filters MUST be paired with a corresponding Class filter. These filters correspond to the sub-menus in the AH.

Gold Value

If you want to use this filter for Groups, you need to first set the price source in /tsm -> Groups that TSM will pull a value from. This can be any valid TSM price source. When using this filter for Shopping, it merely filters on the item's buyout value. When filtering Groups you can supply a minimum or a minimum and maximum. Use a minimum of 0 for the filter to function as a maximum. When running a Shopping search only 1 value is accepted and it is used as a maximum.


Usable, Quantity, and Even Stacks

These three qualifiers can only be used in Shopping searches. Usable will filter for items the current character can use, quantity shops for a specific number of items and will clear the search results once you reach or exceed that number, and even stacks will search for items stacked in multiples of 5 for the purposes of Milling and Prospecting.



Upgrades, and Collectibles

You can use TradeSkillMaster to find upgrades of the armor or weapons you currently have equipped, or transmog appearances you have not already collected using the Browse search with these filters.
