Achievement guide "Higher learning"

I just realized that I'm still missing the general achivement "higher learning", which is a scandal since my main is a mage :P

So I threw together a quick and dirty guide for this achievement since it's tedious to look up the locations of these books and WoWPro can really simplify the matter. However, once I tested the guide, something odd happened: All the waypoints appear not where they should, but somewhere off the southern coast of Northrend. Even more peculiar, they all appear in the same place, despite having different coordinates. Did I do something wrong with this guide or is there a bug in the Achievement module of the addon?

Dalaran City

Change it to Dalaran City and that should work.  It might be just one word, DalaranCity.

Estelyen's picture

Weirdness Increasing

I tried your advice, but didn't think it'd work in the beginning (after all, I copied that |Z| tag from the neutral Zul'Drak leveling guide, where it works quite well).

At first I tried "Dalaran City" which prompted the addon to spam "invalid |Z| tag" into my chat as I expected. Then I tried "DalaranCity", which acted even weirder than the original "Dalaran", because it does seem to work (there's no "invalid |Z| tag" message at least), but the waypoint arrow doesn't show up at all. I right clicked the guide window and said "Map coordinates" (which usually causes the arrow to show if it bugs out), didn't help.

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.

~Garfield

Dalaran

That is strange.  This is what is in WoWPro_Zones.lua, so it should of worked.  Should of tested it as I am trying to do this from work.  I also noticed that Dalaran City is in the LUA several times.  Not sure if that has anything to do with it or not. 

["Dalaran City@DalaranCity"] = {

["dungeon"] = "DalaranCity", ["mapID"] = 924, ["floor"] = 1, ["mapName"] = "Dalaran City"

Ludovicus's picture

Your Guide To Dalaran

There are a couple of entries for Dalaran for different purposes!

		["DalaranCity"] = {
			["numFloors"] = 2,
			["mapID"] = 924,
			["mapName"] = "DalaranCity",
		},
		["The Underbelly@DalaranCity"] = {
			["dungeon"] = "DalaranCity",
			["mapID"] = 924,
			["floor"] = 2,
			["mapName"] = "The Underbelly",
		},
		["Dalaran City@DalaranCity"] = {
			["dungeon"] = "DalaranCity",
			["mapID"] = 924,
			["floor"] = 1,
			["mapName"] = "Dalaran City",
		},
		["Dalaran City@Dalaran"] = {
			["dungeon"] = "Dalaran",
			["mapID"] = 504,
			["cont"] = 4,
			["zone"] = "Dalaran",
			["mapName"] = "Dalaran City",
			["floor"] = 1,
		},
		["The Underbelly@Dalaran"] = {
			["dungeon"] = "Dalaran",
			["mapID"] = 504,
			["cont"] = 4,
			["zone"] = "Dalaran",
			["mapName"] = "The Underbelly",
			["floor"] = 2,
		},
		["Dalaran"] = {
			["numFloors"] = 2,
			["mapID"] = 504,
			["cont"] = 4,
			["zone"] = "Dalaran",
			["mapName"] = "Dalaran",
			["zonei"] = 3,
		},

So which are which? The "Real World" Dalaran is associated with map 504, because it has a continent and zone index. The other Dalaran is associated with map 904, which is used for a scenario, if memory holds true.

In either case, since Dalaran has two different floors, you need to specify if you want the city or the underbelly. We used to not distinguish between the two, but they are offset slightly.

Estelyen's picture

How?

Ok, I understand what you're saying. How do I do it? As I said, I've already tried the number 504 in the |Z|-tag; that just showed the waypoint far to the south of the dragonblight coastline, just like typing "Dalaran" did.

Patch 5.1 questline SPOILER ALERT AHAED!

Btw, I guess that 924 map is the map that is used in the Alliance part of the Operation:Shieldwall questline where the player has to expel the Sunreavers. I hated that questline :( Made me embarrassed to be alliance.

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.

~Garfield

Ludovicus's picture

Re: How?

|Z|Dalaran City@Dalaran| should do the trick for the top floor.

If you wanted to use the number, you would have needed to to Z|504/1| since it is a map with floors.

And yes, I used |Z|Dalaran City@DalaranCity| for the Shieldwall quests for the [The Purge of Dalaran].  I have such a short memory.

 

Estelyen's picture

Ah, thanks. Finally something

Ah, thanks. Finally something that works xD Perhaps you should tell the addon to use the Dalaran surface map as a default when the |Z| tag says just "Dalaran", because that's what many older guides still do :P

Oh, and although this guide is really miniscule, we could add it to the list of guides in the addon, couldn't we? Final version:

New Guide

To make life easier for whoever adds this as a new guide (me today) When you post a guide, (Before you hit Save) set the Imput format to BB Code, that way the line breaks stay where they are supposed to.  Since this one is so short, I fixed it... but on a long one that would be a REAL pain.

Here is the new guide page

Alliance The Jade Forest guide

Hey guys, I've started to work an Alliance The Jade Forest guide. I don't have the right to edit this page so if someone would be kind enough to add a link to an empty page, I'll upload what I've done so far. My plan is to finish it this week or next weekend at the latest. Of course, it won't be playtested yet.

TIA

Horde Lunar Festival

Hey guys, I've play test most of the Horde Lunal Festival guide yesterday and found some problems with it. The biggest issue was with the name of the Elder that are different from the quest title so none of the targetting worked.

I've also added the zone name to the F comment because there are so many flight points nowadays that it's real hard to find the proper one when you are not using them often.

I've fixed most of it but I'm sure I'm still missing some, you can find the new file here:

https://github.com/Laotseu/WoW-Pro-Guides/blob/Branch_Eric/WoWPro_WorldEvents/Horde/LunarFestival.lua

The Maurodon part need some work. It's not very helpful if you do not have the shortcut portal open which happen if you level wihtout doing the dungeons.

Best

Crackerhead22's picture

I never leveled with the

I never leveled with the dungeons and the portal is open.  Thanks for the catch on the Elder target names.

Also, I did not worry about putting the name of the zone to fly from since the waypoint showed you the closest flightpoint.

Ludovicus's picture

Elder World Event -- Alliance

The Alliance Guide has the same problem with the target names.

I just ran through Kalimdor and "XXX the Elder" needs to be "Elder XXX".

Having the Auto-Select/Accept/Turnin work made gettting the continent acheivement do-able in one sitting!

And the portal for Marudon worked fine, once I realized you just have to run through it, not click it like a portal.  Perhaps a change in terminology would do the trick.

 

PS:  Now fixed.  I woke up this morning and dreamed the right regular expression to use in VI : 1,$s/|T|\([A-Za-z ]*\) the Elder|/|T|Elder \1|/

Update this afternoon.

Laotseu's picture

I'll to try the Mauradon

I'll have to try the Mauradon portal again but it is enterely possible that clicked it instead of trying to run through. That sounds like the type of hair brain thing I would do :-).

The zone for the flight points are not to help find the nearest FP but rather to select the right destinaion once you found the FP because of the trunk load of choices we have nowadays. It helps me a lot to know the zone so I limit the number of destinations I have to mouse over. You millage may vary I guess but I don't think it the extra information is a nuisance even if you don't use it.

I did more play-testing and found some other issues like typos in the quest names which prevented the auto-complete from working. There were a few coordinates that didn't point at the right spot or that benefited from an extra point before entering a structure. The new version is here:

https://github.com/Laotseu/WoW-Pro-Guides/blob/Branch_Eric/WoWPro_WorldEvents/Horde/LunarFestival.lua

I think the guide could be improved by putting |RANK|2| for the dungeon quests. Maybe even |RANK|3| for Northrend dungeon. This would allow toon that are not max level to still be able to use most of the guide. I confest that I'm too lazy to do it myself at this point :-).

BTW, would you guys prefer I submit patches made from Jiyambi's master branch or you're OK with the complete file?

I also have a toon that I level doing dungeons.  I only quest to get certain gear pieces, and am often doing doing like running around doing quests at the minimal level.

And all the Warchief's Command and Hero's Call quests that come from the boards are level sensitive.  [Note that those from people tend not to be so high-level characters visiting older zones can still get some breadcrumb quests into other zones.]  I believe there are Striking Back versions based on level, and then an odd quest Thinning the Horde (25671) which has a level cap as well.

Yes, all the board quest are level sensitive.  But it seems if you are a certain level, the quests which the breadcrumb would normally open, will open.

The Horde equivalent (Seek and Destroy|QID|26009|) also has a level cap, both are 30.  When I redid the Horde guide I did put in the |LVL|31| tag in there so if you are higher than 30 you won't see it.  Speaking of, I'll be putting in the level tag for Thinning the Horde in a moment.

I have not checked the latest

I have not checked the latest versions of your guides as I have no idea where to look unless the git repository has them updated, but I just wanted to say they are soloable for an 85 druid (as I did them that way), but there are three Elders that can cause problems (besides a few others that have level 85 guards nearby that are easy to aggro):  (1) Bluewolf is in Wintergrasp Fortress and who controls Wintergrasp can cause issues, (2) Nurgen is in Azjol-Nerub and you have to kill the first boss to be able to get further in, and (3) Chogan'gada is in Utgarde Pinnacle past the boss Skadi whom you need to kill to get under the staircase.

Laotseu's picture

I found some more typos on quest titles that I had missed. I also added |RANK|2| and |RANK|3| to the old world and Northrend dungeon elders respectively. Here's the new link: https://github.com/Laotseu/WoW-Pro-Guides/blob/Branch_Eric/WoWPro_WorldEvents/Horde/LunarFestival.lua

I was able to solo the whole guide with a Lvl 83 DK Blood spec so I suspect that any level 85 can solo it. The ranks would be for lower level toons that still want to get the XP and the coins.

Cata elders are still MIA though and my level 83 DK doesn't have the portal open so I'm in a bit of trouble to add them. 

Thare are three dungoens zones that cause error because of missing data in WoWPro_Zones.lua. I did the following changes in my fork to fix these: https://github.com/Laotseu/WoW-Pro-Guides/commit/a490e95fb56476dbe8d3daf16dac69c63b720a71#WoWPro/WoWPro_Zones.lua I'm not exactly sure of the expected informations in the zone file so someone should probably checked what I've put in there before including it in the master branch.

Hey guys, the latest WoWPro

Hey guys, the latest WoWPro update includes a new version of the Horde Lunar Festival that add the Cata. elders but pretty much took out all the corrections that I had made on the guide including the elder's names, the quest that had typo in the name prevention the auto-complete to work and the RANK tags. The commit comment is simply Sync to WoWPro.

I figure that I didn't use the proper channel to submit the fixes and the cata elders were added to an old version of the file. I'll merge the cata elders back in my version but I just wonder what's the best way for me to submit the changes?

Laotseu, that would have been my fault.

You are right Gethe.  To let you know, I just recently updated the Alliance side of the Zuldrak guide, so I would recommend basing it off of the Alliance guide and not the Horde version.

EDIT: About the only thing the Alliance guide needs that I see is the FACTION|Alliance tag for the breadcrumb quest from Grizzly Hills.

EDIT2: What I did Gethe, is I reverted the change to the Horde guide, since it hasn't been tweaked in awhile.  I then took your idea and applied it to the Alliance guide, which has been recently tweaked, and I gave you credit in the change log.  As well as put the faction tag in.
