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!

You're right, if the guide

You're right, if the guide thinks it's supposed to be on a later step it's certainly not TomTom's fault - just wasn't sure what you meant at first.

Well, at this point I'm not sure what to tell you - I haven't heard this particular issue from anyone else yet :( I'll look into it when I have time, but I've sadly been super busy lately and may not get a chance. Let me know if you notice anything else that might be helpful in determining the cause, though!

It says STOP, if that means much.

Gylin's picture

Only really need the recorder

Only really need the recorder enabled if you're writing guides, or editing them on the fly.

Going by what you've said so far, any time you log in with the recorder enabled, any guide already loaded will jump to the last step, as the recorder is set up to record new steps which are added after the highlighted step, so it will look for the last step within any given guide.

I think also you have scrolling enabled, which means that the guide window has to be manually moved on to new steps, it doesn't autoscroll to keep up with where you are in the guide

Exactly as Gylin said!

Exactly as Gylin said! Playing with the recorder on is not really ideal at the moment unless you plan to edit as you go, and unfortunately I haven't finished the code that will make it scroll with you when stopped. If you click on a step, it will highlight it and the recorder will continue to return to that step, you can click on the next step to move on to it... if you really want to have the recorder enabled.

I do need to get around to updating the recorder. Sorry about that!

Now that I've gotten everything worked out, I've been on a nice fast track to getting my worgen towards end-game content.  These guides streamline very very well, and explain what they're doing when they feel the need to do so.  Thanks to the creators and the WoW-Pro Addon itself!

Searing Gorge - Horde

Hey guys, addon is coming along very nicely. Big thanks for that. And don't bother about those people that are ungrateful for your work. While I am doing all quests in all zones for achievements right now I notice that there is no Searing Gorge guide for horde listed in the addon. I am doing the 35ish quests for the achievement without it now, just saying, would be nice to be guided :-)

Technically there is one, but it was never finished. I most likely will finish it soon as I have a toon about to go through there.

help.

Ok so I was told bout this site through a friend on my guild because I have a lot of low level toons. I have level81. So i'm not new, however I am used to Curse.com. I did already put your Light Headed, Tom tom (curse) and Wow-pro on my addon. Now its saying I have no guides. Everytime I try looking for the download guide feature on here all I seem to get is a lot of explanation of the guide (which is great) however its not what I'm looking for. I'm a find click and download kind of girl.. Searching for something tends to make me flustered. Please help me so I can level.


Thanks

Curse does not have the full

Curse does not have the full version, or the one that is up to date. Have Curse client ignore the WoWPro addon. Then download from here and install manually.

Here is the link from the download button above. http://github.com/downloads/Jiyambi/WoW-Pro-Guides/WoWPro%20v2.1.2.zip

response

thankyou. i clicked the link and downloaded it. and i put it in the addon folder, but i still dont hv any guides. : /


i'm so confused.  All i get is "no guide" go to interface and select.. i do that (nothing there) says log out and select a guide (i do that) only thing i see is "wow-pro" addon.


someone please help me.

Actually, based on what you

Actually, based on what you are describing, I'm thinking you have the "WoW-Pro" addon loaded but NOT the "WoW-Pro Leveling" module for the addon. That's what would be making the guide tell you to log out, nothing else that I know of would do that. Both the WoW-Pro AND the WoW-Pro Leveling folders were included in your initial download from the site here, so you should have them both.

Check and make sure BOTH WoW-Pro and WoW-Pro Leveling are enabled in your addon select screen. Let me know if that helps, if not we can try other things!

I think you do have the

I think you do have the guides, you just don't have a guide loaded. I believe the panda button on the minimap is still bugged, so you need to open the config panel using the long way.

Click on the Game Menu button (green computer screen), click Interface button, select AddOns Tab, click the plus icon to the right of WoW-Pro, click on Guide List.

Now you should be able to choose a guide based on the level of your character.

If you still don't see anything make sure both WoW-Pro, and WoW-Pro Leveling are in the addon list under the character selection page.

If they are not make sure you extract both WoW-Pro and WoW-Pro Leveling from the zip archive. I would recommend deleting the old folder first.

Twilight Highlands Guide (Alliance)

First off, long-time fan, first-time poster...

Noticed an issue with the Twilight Highlands guide for Alliance, using v2.1.2.  There are two steps that continue to re-appear, despite right-clicking them:

Fight Like a Wildhammer (un-sticky)

Never Leave a Dinner Behind (un-sticky)

I'll right-click them, continue on the guide, and usually after a step or two, they re-appear, and I have to right-click them again.  Noticed this after 2.1.2 was installed--that is, can't say I noticed this in 2.1.1.

Since I haven't ventured into modifying the guide files myself, is there a way to manually fix this before the next update comes out?  Or is it just me having this issue? ;)

Jiyambi's picture

It is not just you - this

It is not just you - this section was reworked and some of the code from the new Dailies module was added in since the Wildhammer dailies are done in this section. Unfortunately, the syntax for the dailies module is not identical to the syntax in the leveling module, and an error slipped through.

You can fix this for yourself temporarily by opening up the lua file for that guide, searching for the offending step, and removing the extra QID.

Here is an example of one of the steps with the INCORRECT code:

C Fight Like a Wildhammer|QID|27752;28861|US|M|53.08,27.73|N|You can go back and forth between towns. Try to pick those not fighting.|

And here is the fixed version:

C Fight Like a Wildhammer|QID|27752|US|M|53.08,27.73|N|You can go
back and forth between towns. Try to pick those not fighting.|

Sorry about that, thanks very much for the report and I'll make sure to fix it in the next update!

rss feed

Not sure if you're aware or if you can control it, but the feed service you're using for your RSS feed, when displayed on my reader is serving ads for gold sellers.  I don't really care about ads in general, but meh, those ads could wreck havoc on the credibility and perceived safety of your addon.

Hellfire

nvm, was wrong about the hearth.

 

edit: also debilitating sickness isn't there anymore either.

 

the southern beacon coordinates are off for the quest Marking the Path.

step 299/307 for hellfire peninsula, it tells u to go falcon watch but the coordinates are at the wrong place.

quest Adminstering the Salve is also no longer available.

also first step in zangarmarsh where it tells u to head to swamprat post, the coordinates are off on this too. the coordinates are at zabra`jin

 

for terokkar forest- aldor (40/242) the coordinates to turn in the quest  Surrender to the Horde is wrong.

quest turn in point for The Eyes of Skettis is wrong. 57/242

Rather be fishin` turn in coordinates are also wrong.

Also, when turning in quest Wind Trader Lathral and collecting the next quest, the coordinates jump to another location when it should be the same person.

WoW-Pro a KEYLOGGER?!

I JUST got an email from Blizzard and well, here is what they said.

"***Notice of Account Closure***Account Name: WOW1Reason for Closure: Terms of Use Violation -- Exploitative Activity: Abuse of the EconomyThis account was closed because one or more characters were identified exchanging, or contributing to the exchange of, in-game property (items or gold) for ""real-world"" currency. This exchange process negatively impacts the World of Warcraft game environment by detracting from the value of the in-game economy.Even if this behavior is the result of a third party accessing the account instead of the registered user (for example, a friend, family member, or leveling service) then the account can still be held responsible for the penalty because of the impact it had on the game environment.We've found the above behavior is many times directly related to groups responsible for compromising World of Warcraft accounts; we take these issues very seriously. To better understand our position against exploitative activity and the risks involved, please review this article: http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/info/basics/antigold.htmlThe exploitative activity that took place on this account violates the World of Warcraft Terms of Use. We ask you take a moment to review these terms at http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/legal/termsofuse.html.

I then called their number and they asked me if I used any addons, I told them I use WoW-Pro, Lightheaded and TomTom.

He said that there IS no WoW Guide, and a lot of people are losing their accounts over WoW Guides.

He said that WoW-Pro is a keylogger and, well.

Yeah?

Malorajan's picture

You talked to someone who

You talked to someone who doesn't know anything then. You had a hidden keylogger or something because there's no possible way for an addon to hack your account.

kayeich's picture

Keep in mind that keyloggers

Keep in mind that keyloggers can lay dormant in your computer for a while before they actually send out information or once they send out information they can keep the information for a while. You are also more likely to activate a keylogger by opening an untrusty website or by running a new program, than through an addon.

Mostly because as Jiyambi said, triggering a keylogger through an addon is just about impossible. Addons are lua/toc/xml files, all of which are essentially text files. Text files can't exactly do much except be read. They're not programs, they can't install a keylogger on your computer.

And, just out of curiosity, you -have- checked that your account was actually frozen and that it wasn't a scam email which led to them asking you for your password info or the like?

Jiyambi's picture

Addons CANNOT hack you - stop spreading misinformation!

First of all, let me repeat something that has been said here and on many other addon websites such as Curse and WoWInsider, and is common knowledge...

ADDONS CANNOT HACK YOUR ACCOUNT!

CANNOT. It is impossible. They are .lua files and can't do anything to your computer, and are not even loaded until well after you have entered your account information.

It *IS* possible to get keyloggers from bad websites, and sometimes even from good ones through ads (I believe I've heard of people getting keyloggers from Curse in this way). This is the reason for keeping your Flash up to date and making sure you have virus and spyware protection.

In terms of this Blizzard representative saying there is no WoW Guide... well, there isn't an official WoW guide. That's never been claimed by anyone on this site. This is a fan guide just like Lightheaded and WoWhead and every other fan-run site with fan-run addons. Are you going to go over to WoWhead and accuse them of hacking your account? You would be just as likely to be correct (which is to say, you would be incorrect either way).

If people are losing their accounts do to "guides", I'm betting they are downloading these "guides" in .exe (executable file) format - these CAN install things on your computer such as keyloggers. Or, much more likely, they tried to buy gold or go through a power leveling service - these are almost sure ways to get your account hacked!

Most importantly... Please, do yourself, Blizzard, and everyone you complain to when this happens a favor and get some ACCOUNT SECURITY. Things you NEED to do to protect your account include:

  • Get an authenticator. Seriously, they are free if you do either the mobile authenticator or the call-in version, and only about 5 bucks if you order the physical one. This is the easiest thing you can do to make sure you NEVER get hacked.
  • Get some anti-virus and anti-spyware software. I use a program called Avast, it covers both virus and spyware protection and it's FREE. Google it.

Finally... PLEASE do a little research before you post scare posts like this one. I honestly considered deleting it because it's spreading misinformation. But I decided to leave it and post a detailed response instead.

I did delete your duplicate post that you put up on a separate thread. Please post only once. Posting the same message multiple times in the future will get you negative points or possibly banned if it's excessive.

I also did NOT do the

I also did NOT do the "Exploitative Activity: Abuse of the Economy".

Jiyambi's picture

I responded to your first

I responded to your first post above, but in terms of this one - that's because whoever hacked you is almost certainly a gold seller, and posted a ton of stuff on the AH. Blizz caught them at it and banned the account - this is actually a good thing for you, as it prevents the hacker from continuing to sell all your stuff and freezes the account until you can get it back.

Suspicious Chat Messages

I'd almost bet that this person responded to a chat message saying that they needed to contact "safety_wow.com" because they had violated the economy restrictions of the game(not exact wording of the message but close). I received one of these but luckily I didn't click on the link. I contacted WoW support & found that there is no "safety_wow.com" associated with wow. It is malware. NEVER click on ANY chat messages that claim to be from WoW, Blizzard or Battle-Net. They WILL NOT contact you ingame about your acct!  If any messages even LOOK suspicious ignore them & report them to WoW support.

Good guide up to level 35

I've been using these guides eariler for leveling from 70-85, and jus started a new toon. This time I downloaded the addon, and have had a good ride up to 35. At 35 though, I've initited quests in 2 areas..... Dustwalow Marsh and Western Plaguelands... and within 10 steps or so, I get "grey" exclamation marks... .the quests can't be taken yet... Example... the quest "They Call Him Smilling jim" in Western Plaguelands can't be taken at 35...

 

Are the guides in addon updated for cataclysm after level 35?

kayeich's picture

That's a little strange as

That's a little strange as both zones are -meant- to be 35-40 zones. Wowhead/Thottbot both list that particular quest you named as a level 35 quest too.

The addon guides actually are updated for cataclysm, though there are some bugs. Just not sure if the bug there is guide related or what, though, given that other sources seem to agree that those quests/guides are the right level.

I found it strange also, as I

I found it strange also, as I did check up the quest on wowhead to see what level it was ment to be.

I can't do any aditional checking on it at the moment though, but I will make sure to check up more on the next character I get to 35. I might actually level up my shaman just to check on this since he's 28 atm. I'll get back with results when it's rechecked.

For now I've just turned of the addon for this zone, and I'll turn it on when I switch zone at 40 again, most likely checking Eastern Plaguelands.

Edit: Just turned the guide on again at level 38, and it checks out to about halfway through, but these are problems I see atm, at level 38.

Western Plaguelands,Into the Woods. This quest turns up bery early in the guide.Quest requires level 39. The follow up step is also not checked, but not sure what that step is for.

small bug

Hey, me again. step 91 in mulgore (horde obviously) the thunderhorne cleasing is ticked off automatically, so you end up never doing the quest.

WoW-pro ingame addon

Hi WoW-pro Dev. Team!


 


I just wanted to say your guide is great! Im a beginning player, and this ingame addon for levelling/questing is just what i needed.


So great work and i im a fan! I will be using this guide for a long time!

Some minor misspelling....

Awesome guide! I'm really glad I made the switch from Questhelper.

I'm not sure this is where bugs are to be reported. Regardless, I'd like to contribute :)

No problems with the addon at all so far, though I did notice a spelling error for a few steps in the Duskwood guide whilst leveling an alt. The steps that involve the quest "Vulgar Vul'Gol" are spelled "Vlugar Vul'Gol", with the exception of the step to turn in the quest, which is spelled correctly. It may be a trivial spelling error, but I'm sure you guys like to keep your amazing guides in top shape.

As said, I'm really glad I started using the addon and I'll be recommending it to my guildies for sure! 

Jiyambi's picture

Thanks a ton! You *can* post

Thanks a ton!

You *can* post bugs, etc, here, but the best place to do so is on either the General Bug Reporting page, or on the specific page for the guide that has the bug. You can reach those from the addon community page, it's linked in the main post above.

Hearthstone steps

As I was using your wonderfull guide, I started to notice that for some reason the "hearth to" steps were already ticked. so I unticked them, but they keep getting ticked. Maybe theres a setting in the addon that does it, but either way i'd be really happy if you could tell me how to fix it.

 

thanks again, love your guide.

Sounds like a naughty naughty

Sounds like a naughty naughty guide author used a bad quest ID number for those hearth steps - one you've already completed. Consequently, they have all been checked off.

Mistake in Un'goro Crater Guide

Hello, I have been using this guide since around level 30 and I have been following it all the way to level 50, which I am currently, and while using the Un'goro Crater guide I noticed there was a slight mistake. At around step 21-23, there is a step called Aberrant Flora which tells you to kill some lashers. After a minute or two of killing these lashers I notice that nothing seems to be happening so I look it up in the guide and notice that in none of the earlier steps does it ask you to pick up this quest. In fact, you do not even get the option of getting the Abberant Flora quest until you hand in the Bouquet of Death quest which isn't until after the guide tells you to kill the lashers for the Aberrant Flora quest. Just thought I would put that out.

wotlk guides

it seems that the guides arent up to date anymore in regards of 20% lesser ep needed for levelups  since cacalcysmi went tho howling fjord wit 68 and now im on step 269/377 and im already near lvl 72 (note i only did 2 daily dungeons and havent turned in the quests jet which would give some about 20% of my level)....... (should count + 20% from heilreooms and 10% guild exp buff^^) but i think  if i calculate the percents  and assme u would come with 70 which the guide suggests u wold be lvl 72 too.

and since most players would have atleast th +5% gild exp buff right now ...... they would be mostly 73-74 when they finish the fjord guide :=)

 

EDIT: i dont know if this is carbonites fault or not but somehow many waypoints  will bie displayed false for me eg step 326 of howlivg fjord guide it directs me back to kamaguya bit on the mep there  ware marked the tiny islands way of kamaguya ofc it is only an excample since its 4its allwaiy hampening random for me since when i close wow and stra it again it shows the rigt way  sometimes and sometimes not >.<
