Gorgrond guide - Cutter not offering Iyu

I figured out why I wasn't get the quest Iyu from Cutter (Gorgrond quest if you chose the Lumbermill). You need to complete Doomshot first. You get Doomshot from the giant bullet just inside the cave, and the yellow ! is under the waypoint dot leading you to Cutter, so it's easy to miss. This is an easy quest as you go down to Cutter just pick up more of those giant bullets. Then you turn it in to the mining cart with a giant bullet next to Cutter. As soon as I did this, Cutter offered me the Iyu quest.

Is there a way to edit a guide? The blood elf starter area (Ghostlands) is massively messed up. It gives you waypoints not even close to where they should be.

Quest Errors

I'm coming back to WoW after a long time away. I found your addon, and I like it most of the time. However, I have found some errors with the quests.

  1. Blood Elf starter quests are messed up. I think there were a few incorrect locations in Eversong Woods. However, now that I'm in the Ghostlands, it seems that all the locations are wrong, and not just a little bit - they're not even close (most are 300+ yards away from the proper location). So it's difficult to follow the guide. What I have to do is look at what you say I should do, use WOWHead to search for the quest, and then use the waypoint from WOWHead instead of your guide.
  2. I'm also playing a horde character in Gorgrond and I'm told to go to Cutter and get the quest Iyu. He's not offering me the quest, and I don't know why. I turned in two quests to him, but I'm not getting this one from him. I built the lumber mill in Gorgrond, so from what I can find I've done all the quests necessary to get it.

Wow-Pro not appearing in Addons folder at WoW login

I am running on Windows 10.  I downloaded Wow-Pro, moved the folder to the addons folder as directed, and unzipped the file.  There was only one file, but upon unzipping, it also contained a Leveling file, along with others.  I can't get the add-on to show up in the add-on tab of the WoW start page.  The other add-ons I use, I download through Curse (Twitch), and I even shut off the capability for Curse to manage the updates for the addons.  Still doesn't work.  I restarted everything.  Still, nothing.  Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?  Thanks

Manually checked progress is ignored after relog

I'm doing the Hellfire Peninsula guide on a newly leveled Alliance Death Knight. I've only started using the guide once I was at Nethergarde Keep, so instead of picking up the quest right outside the portal, I had the quest from the Stormwind Bulletin board. I manually checked off the item to go to the Blasted Lands, bought the booze, then didn't pick up the quest outside the Dark Portal because I couldn't get it anymore. I tried abandoning the quest I had, but then I couldn't pick up the recommended quest anymore.

Now, every time I log out and back in, the addon starts all over from the start, probably because I didn't have the breadcrumb quest completed that you get from Watch Commander Relthorn Netherwane. It tells me to go to Blasted Lands (I had manually checked that off), get the quest from Netherwane (also manually checked off), set my hearthstone to Honor Hold (which I have already done but still gets asked to do and manually check off every time) and then it's at the point where I have caught up to the guide. it keeps asking me to do the things I had already manually checked off. I even patched the addon to 7.2.5 and it still tells me to do things I manually checked off. How do I tell it to stop suggesting me things I already manually checked off?

Setting the rank

Hi, love the addon, been using it quite a while now, big thanks to all who help on getting this addon to where it is now!

I tried finding this but I can't seem to, how do I set the rank for the guides? Thanks in advance.

Draenor garrison guide offers Horde quest to Alliance?

I've been toying around with the addon in recent weeks.  I just noticed for an Alliance character that within the Garrison Buildings guide it recommends that I accept the quest The Headhunter's Harvest from an NPC named Akanja.  That NPC happens to only reside in the Horde Frostwall garrison....

(And this in spite of having already completed the equivalent Alliance quest from Lysa Serion in the Alliance Lunarfall garrison.)

Pathing error in EPL

Just running a lowbie through Eastern Plaguelands, and I took the quest "Nobody To Blame But Myself", which then had me take Fiona's carriage to the next point. At the next tower, I was directed to sell/restock/repair at Patricia Marshall... all the way back at Light's Hope Chapel. Argus Highbeacon is standing right next to the quest turn-in and functions the same way. I suspect this was an error, and he was the intended target.

Emmaleah's picture

RE: Path Error in EPL

Moved to before the turn in of Impatience, so that it would be more easily noticed.  Either someone had already corrected this (but didn't log it in the revision log) or it was actually ok before, as I found it to be after accepting the quest but before hopping in Fiona's Carriage.

Tailor/Suramar guide change.

There is a point in the Suramar guide (around point 245) that guides you, as a tailor, to go to find the first tailor Leymaster. Couple problems with this. They teach you the Imbued items, which I had not yet unlocked because I was still working on the regular tailor quests (this requires you to enter Violet Hold to find Lyndras).

Once you find Lyndras, the guide changed on me and pointed to the tailor shop, where I finished the quests I already knew about. THEN the quest giver instructs you to find the Leymaster the guide had already pointed out.The next trouble with this is the quest giver, upon completion of the quest, offers 1000 Ancient Mana. Following the guide from the beginning, I only have a 700 capacity, because the increase items are further into the guide. Even if I have 0 AM, I would be wasting 300. While there are more ways to get AM later, it may be worth it to push this further into the guide so as to waste as little of this reward as possible.

Stormheim

Just doing a play-though on an alt, found a couple points that should be switched.

139 has you grab a treasure chest, and 140 has you fighting Stormwing Matriarch. The chest is actually AFTER the Matriarch unless you really want to jump off the waterfall, risking death.

WoTLK

Does wow-pro work with this older patch?  If so, can someone direct me to a downloadable version?

 

Thanks in advance

Treasure in Broken Isles

Hey there,

when using the level guides for the broken isles zones, is it possible to auto-exclude the treasure and rare mob killing quest-steps? right-clicking them everytime seems a bit of a hassel. But apart from that really great addon!

Emmaleah's picture

Treasure

Two ways.

1) Set guide to rank one. Rank one includes NO treasure or silver elite mobs.  It also skips all quests that are not essential to the zone achievement.

2) Manually edit the file (in the text editor of your choice) to comment out or delete the lines that start with "$" and "K Kill" if you want to run the guide on rank 2 or 3 but without the treasure/rares.  Be aware there are a few lines that start with "K Kill" that are not for the rare / silver elites.  They won't say Silver in the description note. If you choose this option you will want to save a backup or redo it each time there is an update as the update will default to overwriting your changes.

choppy in draenor and broken ilse

wowhead.com javascript parser (greasemonkey/tampermonkey)

So I spent a few hours tampering with a proof of concept javascript you can load with greasemonkey/tampermonkey in chrome.

https://tampermonkey.net/

The idea was to assist / help you when writing guides based on wowhead, not being ingame, and just quickly getting the data from wowhead.

Here is a little gif showing it in action

https://www.dropbox.com/s/2vko17jpgog4sro/poc-wowhead-parser.gif?dl=0

And this is what it does in text

  • Adds a button on a quest page that says "Do Magic"
  • Pressing this button scans the current page you are on
  • It fetches Level, Required Level, Start, End, Faction
  • It tries to determine the location of start and end based on the map pins on the page (does not acquire zone)
  • It also scans the "Series" tab, and executes ajax requests fetching data from thoose quest pages.

Would this be something you would be interrested in adding to a github and perhaps collaborating about? Can you see a use for this? Any way, feel free to comment :)

Oh and here is the script: 

Disclaimer: it's a proof of concept, the code is crappy, and haven't been iterated over many times.

Re: wowhead.com javascript parser (greasemonkey/tampermonkey)

Both I and the Grail author have tools we use to scan Wowhead.  The tools were OK for Draenor, but we found that the accuracy and completeness of the WoWHead information was not so hot for writing guides during the Beta period.

On the other hand, something like this would be easier for all the guide writers to use, compared with a tool only I can use.

Lets chat via email!

 

I tried finding an api for

I tried finding an api for wowhead. they do have api.wowhead.com, but I could not really find any documentation, and i'm not sure it gives what I wanted.

 

I also discovered an issue with with requesting the data by ajax, the "Quick Facts" box is populated by javascript, so I either have to scrape it in a different way, or work around it.

Another alternative could be a chrome extension that could "record" your session, scrabing the pages as you browse around. kinda like the recorder addon.

Not sure what would be the best tool during beta, especially when the data have not been populated yet on wowhead.

But sure we can chat via email / IM :)

Something is amiss

Hey guys,

i just recently updated your guide through the curse addon and when i tried to play wow it said under the addon menu that your guide was incompatible. I also tried to update it manually through your website but that doesn't seem to have helped. I also tried deleting the curse version but then the other parts of the add on said dependency missing.

I probably have to wait till the next update rolls out which i realise today. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up.

p.s. LOVE THE ADDON and everything you guys do.

same problem

sameproblem with it saying incompatible deleted all files of wowpro and still get the samething is there a way to fix yet ???

Old libraries?

Could it be that there are some old libraries left in your system?I suggest deleting the WoWPro folders manually and then reinstalling them.

FIXED IT

It was exactly what you said it would be. I am using windows 7 so i am still on the learning curve on how to operate this beast. Like i said I'm not a Techno wiz but i kinda of know my way around computers. Thank God for the internet. I was having problems looking for the actual WoW files, but thanks to the internet it is fixed and I can get back to my adventures.

 

KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.

 

Update

I have looked into every file that I can think of and deleted the program manually. I have also deleted the program from the Curse Client. When I check under the Addon List it still detects the WoW-Pro achievements, dailies, professions, and worldevents programs.

I am not that techno savvy so I have no clue where to look for these programs to delete them completely. I try to download them and send the extracted files to the file provided by yall and then redownload the program from the curse client but still it comes up with incompatible.

I am currently trying to do

I am currently trying to do that. Either im not getting it all or something else is going on.

Where are my posts?

When I post a comment I can see under "My Account" that it gets approved, but I never see the post I make in this chat, or the comment I just made on a guide.

 

As an example this is the link for a guide comment I have under "My Account" http://wow-pro.com/guide/suramar_guide#comment-55239

But that just gives me the guide page, it seems like my comment is not being rendered or shown on that guide at all.

Experience of the site as a new user

Hi there, I recently installed the wow-pro addon, loving the work you have done. I contemplated contributing to the addon guides because i'm playing an alliance warrior that just reached 110 and started suramar. but honestly I can't find anything on the homepage, the forum is outdated, the pages are outdated. it is all a big mess, as a result I was put off on attempting to help.

 

I remember I found an addon recorder at some point and I wanted to record what I where doing so someone could use that data to write guides. but the contribute section has nothing about that addon, and I can't really find any "new" information on this homepage besides the latest status updates and recent comments.

 

I know it is a HUGE task for this community writing guides and keeping them updated and sharp, but if i'm having trouble figuring out how to contribute, i'm guessing i'm not the only one that might have just said "fuck it" and continued using your great work and not being able to contribute :)

 

Again thanks for the great work, I just felt I needed to tell this to you :)

Re: Experience of the site as a new user

thmsn:  I (we) appreciate you taking the time to comment.

I (as the addon maintaner) and my fellow guide writers are so focused on what we are doing that we have not paid attention to the website that others see.  First impressions are important.

Right now, as of 7.1.0, it looks like the rate of needed bug fixes is going down.

I'll spend a day to clean up the website and then spend some time cleaning up the recorder and figuring out some low-overhead way for people to contribute.

The current recorder is currently trying to do two things:   record what you did and also let you edit a guiide.  It does not do a good job of either.  I think that evilving the recorder to be a pure logger might be better, as it would let people contribute their experience in a way that a more experienced guide writer could generalize for a wider audience.

Again, thanks for taking the time to think about it.

Profession Guide

Is it possible to record a profession guide with the wow-pro guide recorder? I have been contemplating for a while now, but I would like to start making guides for professions.

Ludovicus's picture

Re: Profession Guide

It was not designed to pick up stuff you make.

However, Legion has tons of profession quests that could be made into a guide....

 

Emmaleah's picture

Recorder and Professions

I dont know if it would auto pick up any steps.   You could do it with the recorder on, and be typing the steps into the edit window as you go.  I think it would probably be easier to do it manually...

Unless you are talking about legion professions.  They have A LOT of quests involved it seems. You would still have to manually supply the run steps (either through the recorder or after you take it to a text editor.)

The recorder doesn't automatically pick up much besides quests.

Collaboration?

My work schedule is so chaotic this week I'm not sure when I'll be able to work on something this large. I can try to provide what I can maybe we could collaborate ? I'll try to get anything you think necessary to help complete any guides you're working on.

work schedules..

LOL  My work schedules change daily... I'm a truck driver by trade, I never know when I have time to play.. (that's why My suramar guide is slow, I dont have time to get my rep up fast enough to get ahead of ppl)....

 

Also far ahead of me

Since I have a lot of alts that still need to get to 110. Only my warrior has reached it. And I'm ony halfway into the guide by now. The rest is lagging behind around 105 at this time. And I won't be having much time to play from next week on, when I'm starting on a new work project.

 

Estelyen's picture

Same here

Same story with me, although in my case my alts are sill somewhere between 90 and 110 since I completely skipped WoD. Only did a little Tanaan grinding in the weeks before Legion to get Draenor flying so I could level all my chars faster on that first half of the missing level range.

My Main is 110 and is at the point where the tree is planted in our hideout. My shaman alt is now 102 and bouncing around in Stormheim, my Paladin is 100 and hasn't started Legion content yet and my priest is 93 and just starting out WoD content. All others are still at 90 since I don't have that much time to play sadly.

Life isn't like a box of chocolates, it's more like a jar of jalapeños: What you do today might burn your a** tomorrow.

More advanced Directions

Hey everyone, I love the add-on and guides you have made. I do
however, have a question about the current way the guide gives
directions. Some of the other guides I have used were able to show me a a
"quickest route" to my way-point location. Will WoW-Pro ever receive
this feature? Does anyone know of an add-on that can also do what I am
asking?

P.S. Here is an example of what I am asking. The
current guide I am using is helping me farm the Raven Lord mount. I am
currently in the new Dalaran that released with Legion. The add-on is
now telling me I should go to the chamber of the guardian so that I can
use the portal to Shattrath City. After using the portal and spawning in
Shattrath City the add-on will then prompt me to travel in the
direction of Sethekk Halls.

Emmaleah's picture

Re:More advanced directions

I'm not exactly certain what you are asking.  But ...what I think is that you are wanting the guide to tell you where the portals are and the steps needed to get to the destination. 

 

Alas, the addon does not have a way to display differant instructions based on where you are.  So the guide writers pick a common start point.  

 

I expect the guide was written before legion and so the writer couldn't have referanced the chamber of guardians. If someone wanted to suggest improvements to specific guides, the comments should be posted to that guide

Emmaleah == bravely leading the way since ... um a long time ago... Smiling

Thanks

You are correct, that is what I hoping to find out. It's not a huge deal, really. There are just so many ways to get around Azeroth it's hard to remember all of them. Thanks for the reply Emmaleah.

Hunter Order Hall

Help been trying to fogire this out for days, according to the guid I am 3/4 in my hunter order hall, yet I have no clue what I am missing. I see nothing showing me where I am and what is the last piece. When I go to tthe guides part I see a green icon next to it but everytime I check it it vanishes. Help,

 

Cheers

Ludovicus's picture

Re: Hunter Order Hall

Are you level 101+ ?   There is a questline that starts with [Pledge of Loyalty] that you cant do till then.

You can right click on the guide window and view the current guide and you can see what quests remain to be done.

If you bring the mouse over the earliest one in the guide, it will tell you why you are not eligble to do that quest.

Hmm, there seems to be a slight syntax error on [Pledge of Loyalty] but it should not cause you a problem.

Treasure chests

Is there a way to turn them off in the guide?

Don't really want to collect them while levelling.

Emmaleah's picture

Treasure chests

On the version to be released today. (or currently available on github all but highmountain),-- all treasures have been moved out of rank 1.  If you want to delete them entirely you could open the guide file with a text editor of your choice and delete (or comment out with a ";) all lines that started with a "$" (doller sign).  Be sure and save in text format with the original file name (or add the new name to guides.xml in the same directory on your computer).  Be aware any modified files will be overridden when you download the next update, so have backups to rcompare  and restore after updating.

Emmaleah == bravely leading the way since ... um a long time ago... Smiling

Adding in Ignore Quest?

Would it be possible to make the guides ignore quests based on a level? For instance, in Legion, when you are 110, the area objectives are not longer available.

Emmaleah's picture

Bonus Objectives

The newest version ignores the bonus objectives at 110.  Also, they have all been moved out of rank 1.  This version will be released later today.
