How To Install:

  1. Download the addon using the big shiny button.

  2. Download TomTom from WoW Interface or Curse. TomTom is important! Without it, you won't see the arrow telling you where to go! Get version v50400-1.0.0 or later.
  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!

  5. If you have any trouble installing the guide, stop by our Addon Help Chat Room to get help!

You can also visit the WoW-Pro Leveling Addon Troubleshooting Guide, where you'll find a fix for most common issues.

Missing Waypoint Arrow on TomTom?

I recently created a new character and freshly downloaded TomTom and WoW-Pro Addons and started to play once I got in the game there was no waypoint arrow to guide me and when ever I would accept a quest or finish one it wouldn't say so in the current guide, it looked as if I had completed 0% of the guide.HALP?

Missing TomTom arrow

Wow dude 7:25am on Christmas're keen! :P

Anyway, if you can tell us what guide were you using at the time, we can then look into your problem.

Clicked on next quest by mistake

So I got a new quest and i by mistake said skip quest and now i dont know what to do in the quest and the way point is set different, how do i go to my previous quest to get my waypoint back and get the details?

You can right-click the

You can right-click the header, then click on 'Current Guide', then just scroll and uncheck the ones you skipped by accident.  You can also do 'Reset Guide', but that can sometimes clear a bunch of quests you've done already.

Am I stupid or do I have problem?!

Hello! When I go to wow I can see that there is the wowpro leveling addon and the tomtom but the problem is that i cant get the arrow and the waypoints to map. The wowpro addon says  what to do and i can see the tomtom coordinates but cannot fix it to work together that tomtom shows where to go next. So help please and sorry for my bad english :)

Gylin's picture

Sounds like you've disabled

Sounds like you've disabled TomTom's arrow somehow or it's not set itself correctly. Open TomTom's option and see what you can find there

I have the same problem and I

I have the same problem and I have checked and the arrow is not disabled in TomTom. I installed both up-to-date addons today.

TomTom problem

Ok, lets see if we can't get to the bottom of this.

Is the error occuring all the time, or just on a specific guide/step?

Have you tried resetting your guide? Right click the titlebar, then click "Reset current guide"

Does the error still happen with just TomTom and WoWPro enabled?

Same problem as Vynil

I am having the same problem as him with the arrow not showing up but i still have details about the quest from WoWPRO but I have no arrow and TomToms arrow way point is enabled so clearly something is wrong.

It's on all the steps. I have

It's on all the steps. I have updated it again since the patch and still the same thing. The arrow shows when I use Quest Helper but not Wow-Pro. Also Wow-Pro is not completing any step when I finish something (flight point, quest [accept or turn in], etc.). Even if I manually click it (right or left) it does nothing. Opening the guide and clicking off the steps does nothing either.

I've fresh re-installed the addon, I've cleared the wtf saved variables and reinstalled again and nothing has fixed it.

On a side note, your captchas frequently had letters too small for me to see to enter them correctly and with no audio option, I had to refresh numerous times to even be able to post.

WoW Pro and the missing TomTom arrow

Ok, could you both let me know if the issue still happens with just WoWPro and TomTom enabled.

When you cleared the saved variables did you clear both the account and the character ones?

Have you tried right clicking the titlebar and resetting the guide, does it help?

Try using Carbonite instead of TomTom, does the problem persist?

Just firing off ideas here, as I can't replicate your issues

On the captcha issue, while we're sorry about that, it was unfortunately needed due to the amount of spam posts we were getting. Spending over 30 minutes marking posts as spam on each visit to the site isn't mine or anyone elses idea of fun!

Wow-pro's guide in action

Hello everyone,

I've been a fan, supporter, and occasional contributor since I started playing WoW, and I thought I'd share a project I just finished; I leveled 1-85 using your guide, frapsed the whole thing, and condensed it so that each minute of video is actually one hour of playtime--it ended up being an hour long. Have a look, share, publicize, ignore, doesn't matter to me. :)

hi there i m new here on this

Very impressive. Gratz and thanks for sharing!

Btw I just finished Loremaster with Wow-pro's addon. Thanks for the addon guys! Good job.

Thank You to the Developers!

Team,I wanted to extend a very warm and welcoming thank you for all of your hard work on the wow-pro addons.  I am a new user to the site, but I used the leveling addons back years ago, before many of the current developers were on the team.  You've all done a fantastic job!  I have never been happier with a team of dedicated gamers!I honestly find it hard to believe that anyone would buy guides online for wow with all of the hard work and effort you have put into yours, which is available completely free to anyone.  I promote your addon at every opportunity now, and again, just wanted to say thanks.Sincerely,Daxley

WoTLK version

Good day,

I have been using your add-on for quite some time and it is absolutely great and only getting better. Thank you for your work! But...

Im not very active player myself, due to the all real life duties. Before Cataclysm came in and raised level and equippment to insane heights, I have only managed to prepare and complete Naxxramas, Obsidian Sanctum and Eye of Eternity with my guild. I would love to give the remaining WoTLK raids a try, but at the same time, Im not interested in having first-time experience being over-leveled and over-geared.

After talking with son of my friend, I have learnt that there is some kind of unofficial servers that are still running WoTLK (or even TBC ones) and old patches, 3.3.5 in the case of one he recommended to me. I would love to give it a try and experience those WoTLK raids with level 80 and gear that was designed for them.

Problem now is that I only keep latest WoW-Pro add-on on my computer and I can't seem to find any archive here, and I can imagine that having Cataclysm add-on for old WoTLK zones isn't going to work good :)

Would any of you be so kind to point me to the latest WoTLK version of your add-on, or upload it somewhere for me?

Thank you very much in advance,and sorry for my English skill, still learning ; )

P.S. The CAPTCHA here is really really hard to read, I have "The answer you entered for the CAPTCHA was not correct." six times before it worked. Some of the letters / numbers were so small that I could not recognize them in the dots behind. Some "Refresh CAPTCHA" button would be great :)

We actually do not support

We actually do not support private servers, which is what your friend is talking about.  Those are actually against the Blizzard's EULA, which is why we don't support them.

Ah, I see.

Ah, I see. I thought its all fine as long as I own all boxes and pay monthly fee...

If there was some official pre-Cataclysm server, I would not even think about this. Im not planning to stop playing on official servers, that would make me even more delayed with progress, I consider this as an alternative, to let me experience WoTLK raids "the way it's meant to be played" :)

Anyway, Im not asking you to support private servers at all, all I ask you is older version of your great add-on, that we were all using during WoTLK.Let's call it archive of older versions, same as wowinterface, curse or ace have.  That doesn't mean they support private servers, right?

addon wont work?

it says that the wowpro addon is out of date? help plz

i am really intersted in trying this :)

Gylin's picture

Just tick the box at the top

Just tick the box at the top of the addon selection screen that says "load out of date addons".

Or update your old version of the addon to the newest release (2.1.21A)



Seriously! TomTom won't work, the addon won't work properly like it used to! Whenever I accept a quest, the guide won't go further unless I choose the same zone guide again! TomTom won't load like it used to! WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!!!?

Gylin's picture

Ok chillout, have you tried

Ok chillout, have you tried it solely with our addon and TomTom, if you have any other addons? You mentioned a guide, what guide, faction and step were you on? Have you tried uninstalling the addon completely inc' saved variables?

Wont work

I downloaded the addon and added it to wow but when I went to play its not under addons, during the game or character selection.

read the troubleshooting

read the troubleshooting guide here, there's a section that explains what to do if the addon doesn't appear ingame

Hey it happens to the best of

Hey it happens to the best of us. Guess I better redownload it myself then. Wanted to say I find this to be a must have for me and it's made my questing days enjoyable. Keep up the excellent work!Thanks for fixing it!

Download Link Not Working

I just get redirected to a page that says "404 - This is not the web page you are looking for"

The correct link :D



Though I'm sure the download button will be updated soon to reflect the correction.Found it through locating Jiyambi through github's user search function.Enjoy!



Ludovicus's picture

The link was RIGHT, the file uploaded was wrong.

That file was made up with the wrong version number in the name and contents.

I uploaded a file with corrected name and contents.


No worries thanks for the

No worries thanks for the great addon!

Starting guide half way through


I've just downloaded your guide but I'm half way through a zone. The addon's picked up the quests I've got currently, but is directing me to a quest I've already done. Yes, I know I can mark it as completed, but I don't remember all of them!

There's an addon called quest completist that can poll the server to see which quests have been completed. It would be great if you could incorporate that, so a new user like me could jump into a guide half way through.



Ludovicus's picture

Quests already done ,,,

Hmm.  The addon does query the server to find out what quests have been done so that should not happen, unless Blizzard has changed the quest IDs on us again.

What Zone, Faction, and quest did you notice this on?

Did you try resetting the guide?

Dependency Missing

Sounds like there's a problem with something in the Wow-Pro formula, probably a corrupted or missing file. Try deleting the folder, redownloading the addon, and installing a fresh copy.

I have to agree with the person who commented that the captcha system here basically sucks.

Dependency Missing

So no matter what I do with installation of this addon (extract then copy and paste, direct extraction. I've deleted the SavedVariables, the WTF folder WoWPro portions) when I log in to WoW it says that there are dependencies missing. The WoWPro addon doesnt show up on my addon list, only the dailies and profession modules.


PLEASE HELP!! It's driving me nuts

Hitchikers advice: DON'T PANIC


Before you log in, click on the addons button on the bottom of your character screen.

Scroll down to the section that lists Wow-Pro and each of the other WoWPro addons.

Put your mouse over them, and you should get a nice descriptive text window and/or a warning about a missing depenency.Take a picture of your screen and send us a link to it!

Alternatively, if the missing depency message shows up in your char window, please copy the message and post it here.It should say *what* is missing.   Then I can help!

Thanks a lot!

The advices I found here were  good enough to answer my questions about the game! Now I have found a good reason to stay way from ink and toner  from time to time. Thanks a lot guys! 

The two addons listed in the

The two addons listed in the in-game folder are WoWPro Professions and WowPro World Events. IN the addons folder, however, there are WowPro, WowPro Leveling, WowPro Professions, WowPro Dailies and Wow Pro Events. The dependency missing when mouse over'd is WoWPro, but it's in the addon folder!


I had uninstalled WoW a few months ago and reinstalled recently and now the addon doesnt work. It had worked great previously.

I am having the same problem.

I am having the same problem. Did you find a fix to it? I have redownloaded it maybe 7 times, and its the same every time.

Hellfire Peninsula section (A): Digging for Prayer Beads

Guide says to just go to the map location and loot, but Blizzard has since fixed the quest so that the loot item doesn't spawn unless you do the quest as intended. Guide needs to be updated to reflect this.

BTW: your catchpa system is horrible... took me more than 10 tries to get one that I could read

Video Walkthroughs

I have been following this guide out for a while so i decided to make a video walkthrough for the whole of cataclysm, Check it out on my youtube channel at :) don't forget to subscribe as i am hoping to start out a nice youtube channel with wow video to get a youtube partnership Also if an admin sees this could you post the videos on the website or something?

Guide: Hellfire Peninsula-Horde

Hello, first I want to say I love your add-on and I have used it to level several characters on both Horde and Alliance.  I have noticed some issues with this particular guide while playing my druid.  All of the mag'har related quests after completing the quest 'The Mag'har' are no longer in the game, presumably due to the fact that Thrall is no longer in Orgrimmar.  This may have an effect on the Nagrand quest guide, but I have not gotten to that point on my druid yet.

This is a list of quests and their follow-ups that I have noticed have been removed completely from the game:

Messenge to Thrall

Envoy to the Mag'har

A Debilitating Sickness

Administering the Salve

The last two may be unintentional but the option to take 'A Debilitating Sickness' does not pop up unless Envoy to the Mag'har is completed, so I'm pretty sure that this was merely an oversight on Blizzard's part.

Addon Deleted

I followed the guides for 3 different character at 3 different levels.

After being asked to make a long distance run accross all of Hellfire to Telhmat to pick up ONE quest when I could have finished 3 other quests and FLOWN to the destination or completely SKIPPED the single ... after being asked to fly from  and after bing asked to do quests that have lower than 60% drop and HIGH quantity collection rates, I came to the conclusion that I can level much more effieciently on my own.

The game does a much better job of guiding us through the leveling if you let it. ;)

indeed it turns better :)

indeed it turns better :)

I am writing a blog about wow armory

Tanaris guide suggestion

Is there a place to make suggestions?


OK, I'm following the Tanaris guide and I have a suggestion.

I have found that the Gazer Tag and Chicken of the Desert quests are WAY to low of a drop rate to be efficient for leveling.

In fact, I have skipped the quests from Bootlegger outpost completely with 2 other characters.

After completing the Lost Rigger Cove quests, I finish the butcher bot and then move over to Trenton Lighthammer and his friends. With a couple of dungeon queues or battle grounds I did not need the Bootlegger quests.

BTW, I started Tanaris 2 levels lower than what your guide says. 

Can you find a different captcha system? This one sucks to read.


Not sure it has.  I am still seeing spam, so they have figured out a way around it.
