Minor Glitch

In the Grizzly Hills section of the guide addon, whenever it sends you to talk to Samir (ie, for the quest turn ins for Troll Season and Filling the Cages), the waypoint that gets sent to TomTom is *way* off.....it is putting the waypoint somewhere off the coast of Howling Fjord.

This may just be an issue with my machine, but it is always setting that waypoint to the exact same place.

Faction?

Which faction, Alliance or Horde?

James

Alliance. It actually seems

Alliance.

It actually seems to do it with several of the quest giver/receivers in that little camp in Granite springs (notably Prigmon).

Thanks for the awesome guide!

Thanks!

I'll check into that the next time I'm questing in Grizzly Hills.

Help Please

Just recently, my addons for the Horde and Alliance leveling guides stopped working. Whenever ever i enable them, Tour Guide doesn't even show up. I checked to make sure everything is up to date. But now every time i log on with the Wow-Pro Guides enabled i get an error message. Help please.

Post Error

Please post the error message. That will help us track down the problem.

Does anyone know how to make

Does anyone know how to make the TourGuide status frame (the one where the objects are shown) bigger? I'm using a small UI scale, and it's the only thing I can't read.

I'm not sure this is

I'm not sure this is possible, but if it is it would be somewhere under the interface options for Tour Guide.

Missing Addons

Hello,

Since 3.2 came out I've found out some Alliance guides are missing. All addons with an authors name are missing, and Alliance LvL 35 is missing from the list I am following (no author). It has 34 with Desolace, then skips to 36 in Stranglethorn.

Jiyambi's picture

If the guide doesn't have an

If the guide doesn't have an author's name, it's not ours, it's a default guide. It sounds like the guides aren't loading in game for you, make sure you have the newest version and that "load out of date addons" is checked.

AMAZING guide!

i just wanted to say, this guide, which doesn't cost a penny, is AMAZING, it is basicaly charity, and i have leveled SO fast with it, im really grateful, and i thank you veryveryvery much for the time which you've donated and keep up the great work!!! Smiling

Well I tried using this

Well I tried using this excellent guide for my way through the Eversong Woods and the Ghostlands, and I really only encountered two problems. The first was:

After following the guide all the way to the 'War on Deathholme' quest it seemed I were 'far' behind on experience point to be at the 20th level. I had indeed killed everything on my way thoruhg the guide, and had even completed my class-quest-chain. I had almost half a bar till the next level, so I saw the suggested grinding session as quite a long one.

The second problems was that somewhere you had misspelled the word 'boat' and wrote 'baot' instead. this was at the quest to retrieve the Kel'Dorei plans from that little island in the Ghostlands.

Well I hope you can use this input to make the guide even better. Right now it's REALLY good - at least for my taste. Quite nice and smooth.

Just a thanks

I just have to say, this is the most amazing addon I've found thus far for WoW. The time and effort put into this must be staggering for what is essentially a charity project for new players (and altoholics like me) and I can't possibly thank you enough. But if you will, try and imagine what it would have been like if I *had* thanked you enough. That's what I'm aiming for.

Thank you.

Jame, I just wanted to

Jame,

I just wanted to thank you so much for this addon. I have known of your guide for a long time. However, I'm blond and I don't really go looking for it until I'm stuck (which happens a lot) with where do I go next? I'm done with this zone (usually anything I can get my hands on). I found the addon this time around, loaded it. Picked one that I thought was the right one for the level I already was - it wasn't the right one, so I picked the next one lower. It was the right one. I have already leveled two times and am close to leveling to 30. But I'm too tired to finish it tonight (will work on it again tomorrow).

So, Jame, a big thank you for all your hard work in putting the guide together in the first place and for getting this wonderful addon together as well.

Levelling Speed

I levelled my blood elf paladin through the addon version. I used rested experience but no emblem shoulders.

I hit level 60 in 2 days 21 hours played. I finished about 1/4 of the way through the Western Plaguelands so I decided to stop questing in the Old World there. So basically, this is really fast I guess.

guide

i am new

is this guild free or u got to pay?

Jiyambi's picture

Everything on the site is

Everything on the site is completely free. It's against Blizzard's terms of use to charge for addons anyway, but yeah. All of Jame's guides, and everything else on the site, is completely free.

Curse.com?

In my opinion you guys should post these on curse.com. It'll open it up to alot more people.

Jiyambi's picture

This will most likely never

This will most likely never happen. If this addon was up on curse.com, no one would come to this website anymore. The community and guides written by users at wow-pro.com is something Jame is very proud of, and if visitors stopped coming to the site, those guides would never be seen and the community would disappear.

I'll add this question to the FAQ, it gets asked a lot.

Ðarien's picture

I would hate to see these

I would hate to see these add-ons on curse.com. I still agree with the person who said the add-on version of this guide should be a members only type deal.

I actually stumbled on this community by accident while trying to find some leveling help on Google, and I have to say, it was the best mistake I ever made Laughing out loud .

Weird.

Same thing happened to me lol Smiling

Download links

Can you update the download links or post the new ones here? Great guides by the way! I would easily donate if I possessed a credit card,

Jiyambi's picture

The links should be on the

The links should be on the respective pages as usual (click the "Download" link above, then scroll down to the "Installation" section of the resulting page). If the new versions are not showing up, you'll need to refresh your browser's cache.

Got my account closed

Unless blizzard made a mistake, the only way my account could of got closed for Unapproved Third Party Software is because of this addon. Sad

You should check to make

You should check to make sure that the message you were sent was actually from Blizzard as well. There are a lot of phishing scams out there. I almost got caught in one months ago when my subscription was closed. Good thing I realized there was no way it was real because I hadn't been online for a few months. Anyway...

Hey.. I was just coughing?!

Scan your computer for viruses and check the forums for ways to clean your PC thoroughly from keyloggers.

Jiyambi's picture

That would be a mistake.

That would be a mistake. This is not software, it is an addon and addons are approved by Blizzard. If Blizzard has a problem with this addon specifically (which they shouldn't, it breaks no rules and does not request donations in game, nor do we charge for it), then they need to contact us. I would suggest you try to contact Blizzard and find out what happened.

JamesL85's picture

Don't Think So....

If the mod here was the reason your account was closed, there would be a metric TON of people voicing their displeasure. And trust me, I would be at the head of the line on this!!!!

Jiyambi is right, you need to get in touch with Blizzard and find out what supposedly happened to get your account banned. I'd be curious to see what exactly they did state as the reason for the ban though.

Updated version

I am already using the addon, and am wondering if I download the updated version, will it cause problems? Will the new version know what I have and haven't done?

Jiyambi's picture

When you download a new

When you download a new version, it can loose some of your progress if that version has been heavily edited. Basically if the conditions for steps being checked off have been changed, they won't be checked off anymore. So I would recommend writing down where you are in the guide section you are currently working on before the update.

I should probably write this somewhere on this page!

Also, a new version should be coming out this weekend so you might want to wait until then to update!

Taralom's Nightelf Guide

For some reason my computer doesn't want to let me edit the addon, so instead I made a text document with all the mistakes/improvements I could think of while playing through the Nightelf Guide. Here is a link to the file on MediaFire. In addition I think that there could be more notes to make it more user friendly. Overall the guide wasn't bad, what seemed like a strange order of quests initially worked out well.

I hope this helps someone when they come to adjust the guide.

Need Help.

My cousin showed me this and i thought it was a fantastic idea. I attempted to open it and come to find out my interface foler is missing. I know it could have been renamed but ive yet to find anything of the sort. Anyone know what i can do to find it?

Thanks

status :D

hey. i've used the addon for levelling a couple of chars now, and with this new horde char (With heirloom xp shoulders equipped) its going great!

even though i slacked ALOT at lower levels (mostly i was just playing that new peggle addon and standing in orgrimmar Sticking out tongue) so i got 8 days played. but when i quit slacking and just stuck to the guide it went blitzing fast

i even completed all quests in blades edge, netherstorm and almost all in shadowmoon.(and ofc the quests the addon tells me to do, so basicly i've done all regular quests in outland, more or less) so i went to northrend when i was level 72ish almost 73

when i was done in howling fjord i was level 75, and before i got to dragonblight i hit level 77..

this was without ever being fully rested, or grouped. i did get a friend to rush me through UK though, and i've only done one instance so far, and thats nexus..

mostly i did the outland guides coz i needed the items to disenchant for my enchanting skill levelling (357 atm, just gathering mats atm Sticking out tongue)

overall its a great guide, and its a shame that the blades edge, netherstorm and shadowmoon guides arent in addonform yet. i hope they'll be added (and suggested as optional stuff ofc)

good work to all people who work on this! you diserve a medal

Jiyambi's picture

I'm a little concerned when

I'm a little concerned when you say you used out addon guide for Blade's Edge and Shadowmoon, because our addon does not cover those zones. It may be that you've been using TourGuide's default guides, and NOT WoW-Pro's guides. Check to make sure the guide says both "WoW-Pro" and "Jame" in the title.

I'm guessing he used the

I'm guessing he used the text version for those, as he stated that is a shame theyr not in AddOn format yet.

Guides not showing up

Hi guys i was just recommended this add on by a friend.

i followed everything that u said to download and install it. But when i go into the game and go to select a guide no guides show up at all.

would like to know if there is anything i can do.

Jiyambi's picture

First, check the

First, check the troubleshooting FAQ Page for common problems.

If those steps don't solve your problem, please post specifically what you have tried and what is not working and we'll do our best to help.

why.. (bug reporting)

the whole idea with the bug report system is great..

but.. why is it designed as it is?

you come to the bug report "main page" and have to click a guide. its great, theres a list of the current reports for that particular guide, which i wanted to post about.

then if i wanna post a bug, i have to click the same guide, again, from the dropdown menu? why? :<
seems silly

Jiyambi's picture

Jahwo designed the bug

Jahwo designed the bug reporting site, because before it was worse. Well, before, we were doing what we are doing now - which is posting feedback haphazardly all over the site. This is because there have been reports of the bug reporting site not functioning properly of late. Yes, a better system is needed, but folks have been busy and it hasn't gotten done yet. It's a big job Sad

Anyways thanks for the feedback!

Kuismar's picture

bug link isn't working for

bug link isn't working for me so i'll post it here. the Horde version of the guide for Fjord where you have to pick up the quest Keeping Watch on the Interlopers can't be picked up until after you turn in Making the Horn.

I just noticed my addons are

I just noticed my addons are an older version than the one here, so I have a question before I update: if I download the newer versions of the addon, will it erase my progress in the current version? Or will the new version still remember all I've done with the old one?

Jiyambi's picture

It will erase any revisions

It will erase any revisions you made. It *should* keep your progress, unless the specific guide you are using has been updated, in which case it may loose the progress for that guide.

Jiruru's picture

Ah, thanks. I guess it's not

Ah, thanks. I guess it's not really a big deal anyway. I just worry about stuff like that too much.

Leveling speed

Just finished leveling a character from 1-80 using the addon. I had decided to make a NightElf Priest as my 2nd character in WoW. Following the addon to the letter from 1-80 took me 7days, 13hours, 26minutes. This was without logging in any major towns or inns, so very minimal rested xp. Figured I post my leveling speed since I hadn't seen any and figured some people might be curious as to how fast it can be. Not bad considering its my 2nd ever WoW character and don't know the questing circuits all that well, I'm very pleased. Thanks guys appreciate the hard work.

Doubt

I am looking forward to start using this guide at level 30. But i haven't been leveling by this guide so far. Can i start using it at level 30, or am i going to have problems with quests i didn't picked up before?

Thanks.

P.S. (I am Alliance)

Jiyambi's picture

It's actually more likely

It's actually more likely that you'll have problems with quests you've already done.

However, just keep following the guide and those kinks will work themselves out in a few levels.

Since Jame's guides start at 30, I don't think you'll have any trouble with pre-reqs.
