duplicate tag error

Dunno if something's just gone pearshaped, but I'm getting a whole load of errors when loading this guide. It's quite big, a snippet shows:

It doesn't look like the guide has the duplicated tags it suggests, and it seems to be printing every line of the guide.

Re: duplicate tag error

Hmm. Are you getting these errors at initial logon or after hearthing or entering an instance?

I think Blizzard is no longer clearing variables *sometimes* when you get the loading screen.   

 

Sigh.

Re: Re: duplicate tag error

It does not matter.  

I moved the tag tables setup to a later phase in the initilialization so that this error should now be impossible.

 

Southern / Eastern cages in Bled Dry

I notice there's been some changes in the changelog here for Bled Dry and the quest object for Southern / Eastern cages.

Unfortunately looking at wowhead, it seems like there's a difference here between Alliance and Horde - in the Alliance the Southern cage is 1 and Eastern is 2, and in Horde the Eastern is 1 and the Southern is 2.  I just ran through here on a Horde character, and the tracking didn't work right until I switched them in my local copy.

Not sure the best way to fix it - do you fork the guide just for that or what? but thought I'd mention it since it seems like there's been confusion in the past and it's not working well for Horde right now.

lol @ Bled Dry

Its nice to know why we can't get it right ;)

I think the solution is to delete them as seperate steps but instead have 1 C step with both locs.

Re: lol @ Bled Dry

Great catch.

How about just have some faction specific C lines?

Curse those silly Blizzard people!!!!

Not auto-loading next guide

WoWPro:GuideNextGuide(guide, 'ShadowDraenor|EmmFrostfire')

Once you finish this guide, it doesn't seem to be loading the next one.  If I change this to WoWPro:GuideNextGuide(guide, 'ShadowDraenor') then it does load up the Alliance guide, so maybe the pipe isn't working as it should?

not just that

I have been talking to Ludo about this too. Its not just that its not reading the "|" but that is part of hte problem.  I say that because Frostfire > Gorgrond; Gorgrond > Talador... none of them load. (which being same faction to same faction doesnt involve the "|".

The Next Guide problem

I was not saving the guide faction to the right place, so the guide switcher did not know it needed to split the string on the pipe.

Fixed here:

Exarch Maladaar/The Home of the Frostwolves

I just ran through this guide on an Alliance toon, and ended up in Shadowmoon without the [Exarch Maladaar].

I cant remeber if the quest was never offered or if it there was an ! among all the chaos of cutscenes.

Can anyone confirm getting these quests recently?

 

For me it always ends on The

For me it always ends on The Home Stretch, then I get Step Three: Prophet! automatically. No sign of Exarch Maladaar quest for me at this point, ever.

Horde -the home of the frostwolves

I just did it today on Horde and I auto rec'd Home of the Frostwolves.  As in, I didnt even click ok.  I turned in The Home Stretch to Khadgar on the dock and then the cutscene where you get on the boat happens then you have loading screen and then finally arrive on the ground, at the waters edge  in Frostfire with [Home of the Frostwolves] in your log. (at least that is the way I remember it... its possible I accepted it upon turning in The Home Stretch)

I just looked at the screenshot I sent you (re: next guide not loading) to make sure I was remembering the right quest and yes. it is Home of the Frostwolves.  Also, in one of my many iterations thru this quest, I discovered if you do NOT turn in Home of the Frostwolves before picking up Home of Fire and Ice  you can't turn in Home of the Frostwolves until 2 stops later, it doesnt seem to affect anything else, just stress because you know you were supposed to and Drek'Thar isnt accepting it either at the waters edge or where you meet Duratan further up the hill.  The next stop (IIRC) was when you could turn it in (in the area that eventually a few quests later becomes your garrison)

I solved it :)

OK, not really, but I did realize you can proceed without the leadin quest.  so, I suggest putting the turn in step as a "t" and using the next quest ([song of frost and fire] for horde) as the QID for the note steps.  If someone comes to shadowmoon/frostfire without doing the tanaan jungle intro (mage port to ashran - long run or summoned by a warlock, queue for a dungeon and suicide/rez at angel) they won't have that first quest.  On opening day, probably not many will be in that situation, but as time progresses it is possible.

Because I get focused on this kind of stuff, I looked into it further.  It looks like to me that Exarch Malador belongs somewhere farther in the Shadowmoon Guide (its on line 254) and the place it exists at the end of the Assault on the Iron Portal is a mistake and should be step three: prophet!
