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!

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 www.youtube.com/thexstreamer :) 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.

Captcha

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

MOST AGGREVATING CAPTCHA EVER

What a pain in the ass!  I had to try 7 times to find a captch I could read.

 

You really ought to find another way!

but at least it's killed off

but at least it's killed off the endless spam (buy pills/gold/shoes etc here) we were getting

First and second things I look at... 2 Strikes.

I just downloaded the addon for the first time.

I followed the on screen instructions and right clicked then wen to the guid list. The list opened in the world events tab which showed a page full...the top 12 lines of the list had 2 or 3 items per line. That is to say that one line had (guessing) 2-3 events listed and all of the text/fonts were piled on top of each other. It was a MESS! So, I clicked on the top line just to see what would happen. Now it shows Midsummer Fire Fest... and no apparent way to change it.

Fine, let's try the Leveling tab.  I'm on a level 60 DK... click on Hellfire Peninsula. The guide window now shows a step to set my hearth stone to Undercity. What? Why?!?! And that is all it shows. What? Why?!?!  

Gylin's picture

Ok, the first step is telling

Ok, the first step is telling you to use your hearthstone to travel to undercity, not set it there. Then use the protal to travel to Blasted land and on the Hellfire.

If you can only see one line of text, look through the display settings options as there are settings in there that allow you to view more, and resize the window. Personally I have mine set to 400x200 with all text set at 10, most of the time ends up showing 4/5 steps at once, so you can see what you'll be doing next. Which would be useful, as the previous guide has you in Blasted Lands, once you'd moved onto the Hellfire one, you'd see there's no point going to Undercity as you'll only be porting back to where you already are.

Lines of text

You should read more carefully. I did not say I could only see one line of text. I said I see many lines, a full  page in fact!

The problem is that the first several lines have more than one line of type per line. I'm not sure how to be much more clear. Perhaps if you think of your printer not advancing and it keeps printing on the same line...letters on top of letters. You can't read them.

Gylin's picture

No I read perfectly fine, the

No I read perfectly fine, the 1st paragraph, you're talking about the guidelist where the lists on multipe tabs show through each other, which is a known problem and easy to workaround by simply clicking one of the tabs at the top (dailies, leveling etc).

The 2nd paragraph, you talking about only being able to see a single line of text in the hellfire guide (the 1st line), and i'm just trying to assertain as to whether or not it's your display settings that are causing the problem, and give you an insight into things that you could do to fix the issue

Carbonite support

I use Carbonite addon alongside your guides, and on characters that I'm leveling, I get the following error message:

"WoW-Pro: It looks like you don't have a recent TomTom installed. WoW-Pro's guides won't have their full functionality without it! Download it for free from www.wowinterface.com or www.curse.com"

Carbonite has its own waypoint arrow and it's coded to be compatible with TomTom. WoW-Pro guide works just fine with Carbonite's waypoint arrow, correctly setting and updating waypoints, so there really is no need to install ANOTHER addon with duplicate functionality. I think you need to update your code to detect Carbonite as well, thus preventing a misleading error message appearing on login.

BTW: The catchpas on this site are EXTREMELY difficult for this human to decipher.

Hyjal Problem

The hyjal guide is listed as finished ( = / = ) cant remember the numbers exactly. Anyway, I have only actially completed about 100 hyjal quests but because of this I cannot go back to the hyjal guide because the add-on thinks it has been completed. I have checked the written version of the guide and it definitely doesn't end there, (around the quest where you throw bear cubs outta trees). Is there any way I can reset the progress of the guide? I have tried reinstalling. I believe this may have been caused by skipping a few quests.

I've been using the addon for

I've been using the addon for a while and a couple things have been bugging me:

1). If you have the addon set to auto scale to a certain number of steps, lets say 10. When you get to a sticky step you gain 1 line for the "as you go", 1 or more for the number of sticky steps, then the 10 actual steps. What you end up with is a frame that is actually atleast 12 steps high and may interfer with your UI config(it does for mine).

So i was wondering if it is posible to make the auto scaleing take into account the sticky steps too.

2). Would it also be posible to scroll the regular steps independent of sticky steps? If I have a sticky step and get past the 10 steps after it before completeing the sticky, the 11th step is not visible so I have to scroll down to see it, but now I can't see the sticky.

RE: I've been using the addon for

Gethe:   Thanks for the suggesttions.

Since your requests sound like they might involve some tricky UI work, could I ask you to file the bug on the development site: https://github.com/Jiyambi/WoW-Pro-Guides

That way it will not get lost.   Since most of the developers are students, we might have to wait till after finals.

 

 

Looks like someone is using your guide viewer

I was on wow interface the other day and noticed a link to a new WOW levelling guide, it looks like from the images on their site that they have modified your code to run their guide.  I have not downloaded a trial so I am not sure if they are using your guides and guide viewer.

http://www.xeleratedwarcraftguides.com/index.html

 

I thought this might be of interest.

Crackerhead22's picture

Yep, we know. Both Jame's

Yep, we know. Both Jame's and the author of TomTom (since they have TomTom packaged in) are trying to get those idiots to stop I believe.

xeleratedwarcraftguides

I have noticed that the guide site http://www.xeleratedwarcraftguides.com/index.html has been taken down.  Looks like a win for James guides and Cladhaire (TomTom author). :)

I just went to that page and

I just went to that page and it looks like whatever guide is still there.  Might want to check again...

I have just downloaded a

I have just downloaded a trial and looked through some of the code, the few pieces I looked at was the same.  Then I checked the 1 - 20 guides.  I have copied the content of their Guides.xml, it looks remarkably like the one in the WOW Pro addon.

<Ui xmlns="http://www.blizzard.com/wow/ui/">  <Script file="01_05_Bitsem_Echo_Isles.lua"/>  <Script file="01_05_Jiyambi_Valley_of_Trials.lua"/>  <Script file="01_05_Malorajan_Kezan.lua"/>  <Script file="01_12_Gylin_Mulgore.lua"/>  <Script file="01_12_Jiyambi_Tirisfal_Glades.lua"/>  <Script file="01_12_Snowflake_Eversong_Woods.lua"/>  <Script file="05_12_Bitsem_Durotar.lua"/>  <Script file="05_12_Malorajan_Lost_Isles.lua"/>  <Script file="12_20_Bitsem_Azshara.lua"/>  <Script file="12_20_Bitsem_Northern_Barrens.lua"/>  <Script file="12_20_Malorajan_Silverpine.lua"/>  <Script file="12_21_Snowflake_Ghostlands.lua"/> </Ui>

 

I would say they are selling your hard work.

 

On another note I would like to say thanks to everyone involved in creating your guides as they are very good.  I have been using this site since before you had an addon.

 

Shadowmoon Valley

I can't see shadowmoon valley in my guide list, is there4 any version I can get this in pls :)

Re: Shadowmoon Valley

So which version do you have?  The current version (2.1.12) is here:

WoW-Pro Addon Update - v2.1.12

 

 

Having a problem

Yes thats the version I've

Yes thats the version I've got. I followed the troubleshooting guide also and its not in any of the folders or in the xml file list.

No Shadowmoon Horde

I'm guessing you must be playing Horde then.

No one has writen that guide yet http://wow-pro.com/node/3286 is empty.

Odd.  I never noticed and you are the first to mention it!

I better check to see which other ones are missing.

Crap on a stick, I thought I had done this.  I'll see if I can do it.

EDIT: Working on it now.

Typo

This should be easy to fix. 'Next update' under the Wow-Pro leveling guide Download button says 'Mar. 11'. I say May.

Re: Typo

Duh!  Fixed.

There is a reason I am not allowed to book social events at home.

Fixed in the main page and the blog entry.

Swatter update

just thought I'd let others know the swatter update (latest I could find) is at 'http://auctioneeraddon.com/dl/AddOns/!Swatter-5.11.5113.zip'

Thanks very much for the great levelling guides! I am using them to gain exalted rep on my 85 now :D

Swatter

I would kinda expect that site and www.gathereraddon.com to have the latest swatter.  The Norganna Addons team maintains that addon, and the very latest is in the libraries subversion repository for the norganna addons  (see www.auctioneeraddon.com or www.gathereraddon.com).

 

Hi, I know this might sound a

Hi, I know this might sound a little petty, but I just wanted to point out on the Deepholm Guide it tells you to get the quest "A Slight Problem" twice and doesn't tell you where to hand it in. It also jumps to "Rescue the Stonefather...and Flint" but doesn't tell you to pick it up, which is right after the previous quest. Just thought you would like to know ;)

Ludovicus's picture

Re: Hi, I know this might sound a

I thought I fixed that in for version 2.1.8 of the addon.

Which version are you/were you using?

Ahh, i was using 2.1.7 im

Ahh, i was using 2.1.7 im sorry.. :)

Ludovicus's picture

Re: Ahh, i was using 2.1.7

No worries; I have a bad habit of fixing bugs as I play, and I was racing to get to L85 before Noblegarden.

Deepholm Guide Suggestion

On the Deepholm guide, an additional step would be of great help between steps 179 and 180 for "The Middle Fragment" quest.  Just something telling us to loot the middle fragment from the vault.  Made it all the way back to Yevaa before I realized I couldn't turn the quest in and had to fly back.

character build

would it be possible to add an optimized leveling build that will show you where to put points to make leveling even faster

Talent Tree Guidance

I was thinking about that the other day, but I got bogged down by some of the math:

  • 10 classes
  • 3 talent trees each
  • Usually 2 minor variations within each tree
  • Possible PVP vs PVE builds
The obsessive, but smart people at Elitist Jerks I think have the best build information around. And building talent trees are a major issue with the DK guides as you build it quest-by-quest in the starting area. Most people just fill in everything and then end up having to respec later when they realize things are not the best they could be.

I'll put it in as a feature request, but it may be awhile.
