How To Install:

  1. Download the addon using the big shiny button.

  3. Unzip the downloaded files into your addons directory. (How do I unzip the file?)

    Windows 7/8 location:

      C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons

    Mac location:

      Macintosh Main HD/Applications/World of Warcraft/Interface/Addons
  4. Log into the game. In the lower left-hand corner of your character select screen, you should see an "Addons" button. Click it. The WoW-Pro addon and TomTom should both be listed. Make sure they are checked, and you're ready to go!

Ludo - waypoint checkoff issues

Hey Ludo, just tagging you by name and hoping we might get an answer for this one. Is this what your multiple waypoint post is about? If not, is there any chance this could be looked into? It's very irritating, as the above posters mention. Makes all those lovely multiple coord C steps really inconvenient >_< Grrr @ Cladhaire for changing TomTom and breaking this behaviour.

Ludovicus's picture

Re: Ludo - waypoint checkoff issues

Actually., it is not TomTom's fault.

The original problem occurred when I made a fix for Carbonite compatability which broke our custom callback handler.This meant that all of a sudden, multiple waypoints "worked" for all step types instead of just r|R|N steps using the default TomTom waypoint deletion.

Then people wrote or tweaked guides over the course of more than a year that dependend on that behaviour.

Then I went off and "fixed"  our callback handler and then all of a sudden our addons were telling TomTom not to get rid of the waypoints because there were in many cases no CS or CC tags.

Hence, my blog posting:  CS, CC, and CN tags missing; help needed

I have delayed making the next release until I can catch the bulk of those errors and add the missing tags.

Jiyambi's picture

Ah, thanks for the

Ah, thanks for the explanation, I have so much catch-up to do in terms of knowing what's going on with the addon these days :) So, long story short, it's fixed but we need to add those tags to everything?

Ludovicus's picture

Re: Ah, thanks for the

Yup!  They are now added everywhere.   Some of the logic needed touching up and I have been testing for the past few days.

All I have found were CN tags that should have been CS or CC tags.

 

 

Arrows won't show.

Been using this great add-on since it was first created and have loved it. Recently been having issues with it, though. Since I updated to the latest versions of WoW-Pro and TomTom the arrow doesn't appear for any steps in the Dragonblight Alliance guide(seems to be working if I switch to Howling Fjord so is a big ? for me. I try to make it map the co-ords, but no arrow will show. Any idea what can be done to fix it?

Dragonblight

This is an error due to the map lawer of Dragon Soul that is also called Dragonblight.  The kludgy fix is to open your dragonblight guide (with a text editor such as wordpad) and change where it says Dragonblight in the header to 488.

alliance is found at:

\\...<your wow directory>\interface\addons\WoWPro_Leveling\Alliance\74_75_Jame_Dragonblight.lua

change this:

  • WoWPro.Leveling:RegisterGuide("JamDra7475", "488", "Jame", "74", "75", "JamGriA7577", "Alliance", function()

horde is found at:

\\...<your wow directory>\interface\addons\WoWPro_Leveling\Horde\73_75_Jame_Dragonblight.lua

change this:

  • WoWPro.Leveling:RegisterGuide("JamDra7375", "488", "Jame", "73", "75", "JamGriH7577", "Horde", function()

Sorry I can't offer a proper fix, but that will get you going again until someone can.  This will mean that the guide will show a title of 488 in the guide list and in the guide frame, but it will now map right ;)

Hi map still not working for

Hi map still not working for horde side dragonblight no arrow using addon with tomotom

Ludovicus's picture

Re: Hi map still not working for dragonblight

OK.  So I took my L62 Belf DK out to Northrend, flew to Dalaran, fell out of the sewer, and then rezzed and rode all the way to dragonblight to test this.   I loaded the Dragonblight guide and I did get an arrow, but it was pointing in the wrong direction!

Turns out I had an entra line in the map file that put the map on the wrong "floor".

Please download the developer version from https://github.com/Jiyambi/WoW-Pro-Guides/archive/master.zip and try it out.

If it does not work for you, please type "/tway list" in your chat window and post the output here.

Un'Goro guide

Currently, the Un' Goro crater guide shows only the first 2 steps. I deleted the addon folders and downloaded a fresh copy. I also deleted the wow-pro configuration files for my character in the WTF folder, but after all that it still only has 2 steps. The character I'm attempting to use it on is alliance, if that makes any difference. Is this guide incomplete or is it an issue with the addon?

JamesL85's picture

Maybe?

If you right click the header for the addon, there's a dropdown menu.  I think one of the options is something like This Guide, or something similar.  Click on that and it will show you all the steps in the current guide.  Are they all checked off or are there just 2 steps listed?  I looked at 2.3.5 and Un'Goro has a ton of steps.  Just trying to narrow down the issue.

Not just un'goro

I tried again tonight with Hellfire Ppeninsula, and it's only showing the 1st step so I think it is a larger issue and not the specific guide. I tried again after deleting the folders and settings and reinstalling a fresh copy but I'm still having the issue. Listing the current guide in the settings after I reset it only shows the first step (HFP guid, in this inscance) and when I chcked off the step I got the following exception: (hope this helps)

Re: Not just un'goro

I don't know WTF is going on, but I will put code in to print out a better error message.

Please try with tomorrow's version.

 

Error message

The fist few lines give the actual error. The rest of it is just a list of all my installed addons at the time the error occured. I included the whole message just in case it was a conflict with one of my other addons that you guys might already be aware of.

i have a question

why cant my brother put this addon on the game after he put it in the addon folder

have a question

okmy brother wants to put this on his wow that he put on his new wow account he follows direction as told but when he puts it into he addon folder it doesnt go into the game matter of fact nothing is in the addon folder do u know what i need to do to help him

JamesL85's picture

Addons?

First question, does Wow-Pro show up when you click on the addons button at the character selection screen?

major problem

my guides seem to be missing alot now since the updat not to mention cant access some of them i try to load up the valley of the four winds guide but it doesnt load up  and the southern barrens is not complete anymore

Emmaleah's picture

where did you get the update

Did you update off of curse? It only includes the first few guides.

Check what version of the addon you are using, if its not the current (2.3.5 for a day or so longer) get the current version.  Then post back what precisely you see that causes you to think it isn't working.  I.E. the first spot that seems wrong. Race/faction and particular guide helps.

Ok, I stand corrected. The

Ok, I stand corrected. The problem is not just with human starter. It's widespread. Waypoints are broken accross the board. Kinda makes the addon unusable for the time being. :(

Human starter slightly outdated and broken

Ok, so my main is a undead demo warlock on Draenor (EU) but I decided to give a human pally a go a sec ago and noticed a couple of issues. The biggest being the fact that waypoints are completely broken. Each step directs to the same place which is not where you need to be. 

An adictional issue would be the fact the guide's a little outdated when it comes to class specific quests. I can wait for fixes. Decided to roll the pally as Dranei instead now anyways.

thank you for the guides + issue

I used the addon in pandaria and it worked great, thank you. But I'm running into problems using the World Events addon for the Hallow's End candy bucket locations. I've tried disabling all addons except tomtom but whenever I enter a new zone (or even new area with a zone), wow freezes. I have to force quit and then restart. Not sure what's up since the general addon for leveling works fine. Any chance this could be fixed? I'd really love to be able to use this addon to hit all the buckets...makes it so much faster than making my own macros to use with tomtom. Thanks in advance for any help!

Experience Same

I am experiencing the same issue.  From reading other forums, I believe it has to do with the Cross Realm zones.    Whenever I fly into new, low populated zones and land, WOW freezes 20 to 30 seconds.  If i disable all addons except Wow-Pro, it freezes everytime i switch zones.  If i enable all my addons EXCEPT Wow-Pro, this freeze only lasts for about 1 to 2 seconds.  Reading through the blizzard forums has lead me to believe it has to do with the Cross-Realm Zones that was added in MOP.   I hope that helps with your troubleshooting.

Ludovicus's picture

Re: thank you for the guides + issue

OK.  I'm not seeing the same problem.  I am running my Belf DK through the first parts of the Eastern KIngdom and had no problems.Though we are missing the new buckets for Pandaria.

What version of the addon and TomTom are you using?

If you are not getting crashes and are locking up, then try typing "/run WoWPro.DebugMode = true" in the chat window to enable debugging and either send us the screenshot or handcopy the text in the window.

CRZ causing Lag?

I saw that recount released a new version yesterday (11/8) and in the change log they said they were delaying some calculations that they normally perform after zoning to help with the CRZ lag after changing zones.  I was wondering if there is anything like that that may help with Wow-pro?  While its CRZ causing the lag, I think Wow-pro may be exacerbating it.

hey, thanks for the fast

hey, thanks for the fast response :)

I'm using the latest version of tomtom, v50001-1.2.1. Also I didn't mention that this is happening in Northrend. I haven't used the guide anywhere else so I'll hop on in a sec and see if it happens when I'm in kalimdor or eastern kingdoms. I'll try the debug as well, thanks.

also just realizing that I *may* not have the most up-to-date addon? I just looked at my curse client and it had 'modified' next to its status. So I right clicked to update and it dl'd files but when I look at the change log it says its the trial version? I dunno if I dl'd the addon here or via curse. hm, confusing myself now. Maybe I'll just delete entirely and re-dl the addon from here.

 

EDIT: Ok my bad, as you were, I didn't have the latest update of the addon installed. /facepalm! It didn't come up as an update in my curse client but then, yeah, I think I manually dl'd here anyway so it wouldn't have. Got the latest now and I think its working ok. Thanks anyway for your help! Again, tysvm for the guide. Infinitly helpful greatness :))

Quest: A Line Unbroken ** Shiya's location incorrect

Love the addon, thanks for all you do.  My contribution:

Quest: A Line Unbroken

Objective: Shiya Boldblade Released From her Oath

Location: 30.0 64.3

 

It has location swapped with another of the guys, don't remember which.  Sorry.

Emmaleah's picture

A Line Unbroken - Kun Lai(N)

Thank you for reporting things that are unclear.  In the future it is helpful to include Zone and Faction.

While, technically it isn't wrong. but I probably should change it.  I intentionally only mapped to one of the 3 locations.  Originally I had the 3 spots with thier own dots (and thier own individual lines.  Then I changed it (and thought I changed the note also to tell people) to rely on the gear symbol Bliz put on the minimpa.  Then later, I went thru the MOP guides and mostly removed relying on Blizz's minimpa icons. (because it occured to me, people may have them turned off)

 

A big thank you!

Just allow me to express my sincerest gratitude to all community members involved in maintaining this addon and all guides assosiated with it. I checked out a paid questing guide addon earlier (shan't name names) and for the basic levelling guide it was £30! (or $45). That is around as much as I paid for the MoP expansion! Nearly four months worth of game time!! 

WoW-Pro guides continue to be 100% free and while updates are not always on the ball for a free guide it is still fantastic. I managed to get my main (an Undead Warlock named Ochmech on the Draenor-EU server) to 90 in not too much time using the addon/guides. And that was without heirlooms or the likes. Also got a shammy alt to lvl 60. Some of the recent guides haven't been perfect and the addon can still be buggy at times but no one gets paid for the work they put into the addon/guides. Considering that, I am eternally greatful for the wow-pro questing/levelling guide and I don't know what I would have done without it.

I updated:

 Jade Forest Alli/Horde

Krasarang Alli/Horde

Valley of the Four Winds

Kun-Lai Summit

this morning to my github.  Hopefully before you do (did?) your intended update for today.

Mainly the purpose was to add in all the grey items you loot for random gold/xp.  I didnt realize until recently that they give XP too, so I figure they should be in here (one I looted gave over 500K XP). There were of course a few other changes as well, there always is.

I will add them to Townlong when I get there again (hopefully next week) It appears there arent any of these in Dread Wastes.  At least no one has found any yet.

Here they are, but I havent looked for the right spot in the guide to add them, (if you should happen to feel like it.)

Townlong:

l Amber Encased Moth|L|86472|M|65.79,86.02|N|grey item, loot for XP and gold, among the tree roots.| (while on the quest in ambermarsh to gather volatile orbs from the agitated nettleskins)

l Fragment of Dread|L|85516|M|55.55,65.02|N|grey item, loot for XP and gold, lying on a shelf of rock.| (while you are in Niuzao Catacombs killing sha's )

l Hardened Sap of Kiri'vess|L|85516|M|57.4,56.6|N|grey item, loot for XP and gold, lying between tree roots.|

 

The Jade ForestQuest is

The Jade Forest

Quest is titled "They Call Him... Stormstout" in the guide

It should be "His Name Was... Stormstout'

Prevents auto-accept, etc.

Alliance version, if there's a difference.

How do I Manage Experience in the addon?

The addon page says you can manage different experience aspects such as wearing Heirlooms, being with a recruit a friend character, etc; I havent been able to find anything on settigs, what do I do to change that?

Emmaleah's picture

Rank settings

The rank setting is in the configuration panel (Rt click on the guide header and choose display settings)

I didn't use it since the quest lines arent as well known and I didnt really know what could be skipped yet.  It is however used in many of the older guides.

Emmaleah's picture

Jade Forest

Thanks for bringing this to my attention,  I suspect you have an older version of the guide, I just downloaded 2.3.4 to make sure and the correct quest is with the correct QID in the current version.  Those quests weren't available when the guide was originally written and apparently somehow the wrong quest name got but with the wrong QID, when it was added in. Jade Forest got a fair amount of attention and  this was fixed (along with several other things) with the most recent guide.  When reporting errors faction is definately important, so thank you for including it (and even on the neutral steps, it never hurts). 

As a general reminder to everyone, the necesary things when reporting an error is version of program, (it would be nice if you would make sure it is the most current too), Zone name, Faction, specific quest, general description of the problem.

How to update

How do I update? If I renown load the addon do I just replace all of the current files? Will it save my progress?

Emmaleah's picture

How to update

When you update (any addon) its a good idea to delete the old files and then extract the new files.  You don't normally need to clear cache or wtf files, but occasionally (for major restructuring/upgrades to the addon) the addon author tells you to.

Your progress is in a differant file (in the WTF directory) so updating the addon will have no effect as long as the guide has the same name. (which is almost always the case)  The only time I can think of that guides change names is when a major rewrite (such as changing the borean tundra guide to be lvl 68 friendly a month or so back) 

Updating the program does not reset your guides, but if new steps were added, the program only knows that you completed steps 1-20 and if will check off the first 20 things even if there is are new steps 5-10, so in actuallity you have done 1-4 and 11-25 it would still show you had done 1-20. I hope that made sense.  My point is that it may be off a step or two, but at this point not a lot of steps are being added or deleted, so it shouldn't be significant.  Most changes from here on out to the guides are to correct coordinates or add notes. 

If you choose 'reset the current guide', it will "lose" your progress, but it will auto fill in almost all of the quests that you have done, (A few quests blizzard doesnt track the same way, so they don't show as complete, so you have to check them off manually.  Also any notes, repairs, and run/fly to steps require manual check off if you reset. 

Small bug in Kun-Lai Summit Guide

Loved the guide and addon - so very helpful (again! used this in cata and in leveling an alt)

In the Kun-Lai summit, step 273, the waypoint for Knucklethump Hole is incorrect (takes you far astray). Should be 50,64.

Thanks again for all the work on this project.

PS Your captcha system is ridiculous and probably will keep me from posting in the future. Too hard to get it right...to have to do this for each post after a registration and log in is way overkill btw.

YAY

I hope to finish a next run thru Valley of the Four Winds and post it tomorrow.  I went thru and added what I felt to be a rediculous number of redundant comments, but if that is what people want, I will endevour to provide.

I have really appreciated Wow-pro guides for many years (I found them sometime in the Burning Crusades era) and am trying to do my part for the community.  While the original paper guides with maps were WONDERFUL, Tour guide (and now the WoW Pro original version) were such a step beyond.    I remember wondering how I could possibly do Zul'Drak (because at the time the guide wasn't available) and trying to make it myself as I went along. It was a mess and I never ended up submitting it. 

So you are right, these were my first guides written for others.  I had editted the tour guide ones to do my "own' thing.  Such as I had one for farming moongraze tenderloin and that other alliance only quest recipe (spider kabobs?)  I made a small fortune in the AH for awhile that way. 

anyway, my 2cents for the day.

 

Valley guide

I just went thru the valley today (alliance side) and the guide was GREAT!  there are a few errors in waypoint locations, but in general it was awesome!!  I do happen to like the redundancy in the commentary - it helps when I'm playing at work and can't dedicate my brainpower to the game the way I should! :)

Ludovicous,

when I click on wow-pro.com>home. it brings up a page that shows 2.3.2 download as the first thing, and followed by a post about cataclysm guides and then 2.3.3  You probaly want to fix that :)

Re: Ludovicous, when I click on

Yeah, it said 2.3.2, but it downloaded 2.3.3 .

Sloppy editing on my part.

FABULOUS!

Having fun instead of trying to figure out where to go.  THANKS!

Quick question, just got to Kun Lai Summit and every quest I pick up give me the error "Zone [Kun} not found.  Using map id 862"

Is there something I can do to fix this?

 

Thanks again

Kun error is because Kun-Lai

Kun error is because Kun-Lai has a hyphen in it.  I thought a fix was in, but maybe it didnt make it to the final version.  Basically, nothing that I know can be done (by me or you) but Ludovicous or Twists maybe can fix it.

Re: Kun error is because Kun-Lai

Oh!    There is a stupid patch to drop zone names with '-' or '()' in them for old guides which may no longer be needed and may be harmful.

I'll get rid of it.  I was looking at that code a fre days ago and wondering why it was still needed.

Going through on an alt

Going through on an alt again, and started with the Four Winds guide. So far, has been great. Only encountered one issue at this point. We are asked to get the quest "The Golden Dream" from Zhang Yue in the Pools of Purity. However, it wasn't appearing. She offered two other quests, but not this one. I skipped it and did "Ashyo's Vision" first instead. And THEN that quest was available. It looks like you must speak to Clever Ashyo and complete this quest by turning it in to Zhang Yue before you can access the quest "The Golden Dream" from Zhang Yue.

Also, as the previous poster mentioned, having a slight issue with the Tom Tom arrow. It keeps disappearing. Refreshing the guide seems to fix it, but then I have to go back and recheck the quests that I had already had to manually check off (btw: many of the steps do not automatically show as completed when done. I have had to manually check them off several times).

The only other thing I can suggest is to please put descriptions with the quests. Just a basic what it is we are trying to accomplish. Otherwise, I am having to read the quests and look up on other sites (at times) because though I know where I am going, I don't necessarily know what I'm doing once I'm there. Yes, usually reading the quest gives it to you, but the point behind the guide (to me) isn't just telling me where to go, but allowing me to do this most effectively and efficiently, which means not wasting time reading the quests. I do the reading of the quests and the following of the lore and storylines on my main. By the time I am doing alts, I am not interested in wasting time reading the quests :) So being able to save time with a brief explanation as has been done in the past would be great.

If you aren't sure what I am referring to, just look at your previous guides done by Jaime and the original group. You will see how detailed they were so that you knew what you were doing when you got there. It was very efficient and fast to use their guide to level. While your guides are useful, they aren't really any different from Tom Tom at this point. They tell me where to go, and that is it.

Just a suggestion :)
