How To Install:

  1. Download the addon using the big shiny button.

  2. Download TomTom from WoW Interface or Curse. TomTom is important! Without it, you won't see the arrow telling you where to go! Get version v70000-1.0.0 or later.
  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!

  5. If you have any trouble installing the guide, stop by our Addon Help Chat Room to get help!

You can also visit the WoW-Pro Leveling Addon Troubleshooting Guide, where you'll find a fix for most common issues.

Hellfire Coordinate

Hi there, been running through thr Hellfire peninsula guide with the new addon, and i've noticed that for a lot of steps there will be a sentence mentioning coordinates, but no coordinates are actually given.
For instance "It's at _______"

Jiyambi's picture

Yup, this is left over from

Yup, this is left over from the way we converted the guides over. Will be fixed eventually.

possible bug

umm, hi am new to the addon nd this site so forgive me if this in wrong area or summin

i installed the addon adn tomtom as instructed but the location of the quests are coming up in the wrong location. i.e . doing the western plaguelands (58-58) , did undercity alright but when i went to the bulwark, it showed it in eastern plagueland instead of western :S nd rest of the quests are in wrong location to :S

This is a perfectly fine

This is a perfectly fine place to leave feedback Smiling

I'm betting there is a mistake in the zone tags for that section. Thanks for letting us know, hopefully the next section works better for you.

Waypoints for Tauren Starting area.

A lot of the quests don't show waypoints for the Tauren starting area; possibly a temp problem from not using LightHeaded anymore?

Also, when you click to go to the options for anything in the addon, it doesn't go to that option, but just opens the general config page for all addons.

Otherwise, it's been working great!

Jiyambi's picture

First note - yes you are

First note - yes you are right, it's a holdover from the change from Lightheaded. There will be a bit less of this in the next update, since we'll pull missing quests from Blizzard's POIs - all that will be missing is accept quests. Those will be added in the future.

Point two - Yup, this is actually Blizzard's fault, funnily enough. When you have a full page of addons the short cut code they provide no longer works. I have a fix, though, in the next version Smiling

Glad you are enjoying it!

Awesome

Good to hear that you are making good progress with this addon! Thanks for the reply, and thanks for all of your work =). Let me know if you ever need anyone for bug testing, etc. Any various assistance =).

Decided to try the new one

Decided to try the new one out, gotta say great work. One thing I miss is the #/# feature. What I mean is the kill x of x type counter. Right now I have both the default tracker and this one just so I can see the # of x,y,z things I have done.

Well I just got an answer to my own question. I turned on the mouseover notes option and it shows the #/# quest tracker. I didn't notice in the full notes because of the coloring maybe have it be a differant color than the note text.

But on that same note I did notice it only shows the #/# for the first or the active quest not for all of them. I like to see what else I have to do.

Well, you can resize the

Well, you can resize the guide and see the tracking info for any active quests that are in that portion of the guide. Alternatively, you can turn off the quest tracking features and use the default (or a different) quest tracker. Since the guide isn't intended to be a complete quest tracking replacement, only to track the quests that are part of the guide, I think it's okay as is. You should be able to mix an match features to get the functionality you need Smiling

Jiyambi's picture

I'm glad you're enjoying it,

I'm glad you're enjoying it, but I guess I don't understand what it is that you are missing. There's a built in quest tracker, and the tag for guide files for partial quest completion (mobname slain: x / total) is still functional.

If you describe in more detail what you would like to see, and if it sounds like it would be a good feature, I can add it to the addon. There's still a lot of awesome features to be added Smiling

Localization

I've used Lib Babble Zone and some of the translations provided by Tekkub. This should allow the addon to work properly on most clients. Everything will still be written in English, but for mapping and auto-completion purposes, the addon should be fully functional.

I'm not releasing it officially until I can get a few people to test it, however. You can find the beta files on our github site, here: http://github.com/downloads/Jiyambi/WoW-Pro-Guides/WoWPro%20v1.0.1.zip

If you run WoW in a non-english client, please consider downloading and trying this out Smiling

Great! Time to give it a

Great! Time to give it a try, I'll let you know if I encounter any problem Smiling

Is there a way to get a hold

Is there a way to get a hold of the old add-on? The new one doesn't work for me. Once I get so far into the guide, the steps fail to show up. For the Azuremyst Isle, the guide got gobbled up around step 21, and for the blood elf starting area, it stopped working after the 3-4th step. I've tried both re-downloading and deleting the settings out of the saved variables folder, and neither have helped.

Jiyambi's picture

Okay update. I just did the

Okay update. I just did the 1-5 section of the BE guide with no problems.

I'm thinking 1 of two things might be going on. First, it could be a class or race specific issue since there are class and race quests there. What class/race were you? I played it as a BE mage and had no issues.

Second, do you have the guide set to enable resize? At the moment, if the guide is resized too small to display the full step, nothing will display. Try changing to manual step number, or resizing the guide larger. In the future I'm adding code to keep this from happening, but for now just make sure the window is large enough for you to see the step.

Resizing seems to be the

In short: no. Zygor

In short: no. Zygor requested that we remove the old addon because it was based on Tour Guide, which he now owns.

Let me experiment and see if I can duplicate your issue, if it happens so early in the BE starting area it should be easy for me to test, and I can see if I can get it fixed for you Smiling

Disappearing arrow?

My arrow doesn't show up! When i first got this addon i was leveling with a friend and was level 2 at the time. Then, when he left, I went onto one of my alts; A Troll shaman and when I took the quest "dark storms" the arrow disappeared! So i went onto my level 27 tauren warrior And selected stonetalon mountain 27-28 guid, and the Arrow never appeared! Confused about this, I created a new character, an undead priest and the arrow only stayed untill I completed "A rude Awakening" and then just disappeared Please help me with this problem!!!

Jiyambi's picture

The arrow has been behaving

The arrow has been behaving oddly for a few people, though I haven't heard of it actually completely disappearing and not showing back up before.

Thank you for being detailed with what guides you were using and where you were in them. Just glancing at the guides, I don't see a problem in their code, so I think the code I am using to feed the coordinates to the arrow might be malfunctioning.

I don't know what to tell you for now. Let me know if it changes at all. I'll be looking into this part of the code in depth so hopefully that will produce a fix, but it won't be right away Sad

Issues with Horde guides

I'm not sure if it's a coding issue, personal preferences, or something that hasn't been fixed from Lightheaded, but in the Searing Gorge guide, the towers you're supposed to burn weren't coming up as waypoints, just the coordinates in the notes.

Also, when I clicked "next guide" to go into the Un'Goro guide, it didn't do anything, so I had to manually click on it.

Finally, At the start of the Un'Goro guide, the Hearth to Org and fly to TB were already marked, and the waypoint for "Bone-Bladed Weapons" was set to Un'Goro, and not Org. Maybe they're the "Set to", instead of "use/fly to".

Jiyambi's picture

Hmmm, could be a holdover

Hmmm, could be a holdover from Lightheaded, could be something lost in translation, since these guides were mostly converted by an automatic tool one of the contributors made. I'll try to get these fixed if someone has time to do so, but the errors may just end up being left there. Unfortunately we aren't prioritizing fixing errors in the 1-60 guides at the moment, since they'll be wiped out in Cataclysm.

Hi, i'm a new user, but i've

Hi, i'm a new user, but i've been a constant reader, and i thought it was about time to make a account. And i have been using Wowpro, and so far its GREAT, but i got a suggestion of a wowpro extra addon, like the tradeskill guides, but you just add them into the wowpro addon, and it show's you coordinates for areas that got the items you need, and a list for what you need, and stuff like that, would be awsome Laughing out loud

Tradeskill guides are planned Smiling I apparently forgot to add them to the list of future modules, though. Oops! Will add them now Smiling

ok atm i cannot run your leveling guides

idk if its me but everytime i try to play your addon crashes my client and i have no other addons non-blizz

Jiyambi's picture

I really don't know what

I really don't know what would cause this, I haven't had it reported by anyone else. Let me know if you get any errors when this happens or anything else that might help me solve the problem, unfortunately at the moment I just don't know enough about what's happening to do anything about it Sad

well

well this could just be lag but when i am loading a character it gets all the way to half way and then it finishes and crashes idk if it is lag but atm it is unrunnable
EDIT: i figured out it was a dumb firewall idk but after i uninstalled the firewall it went away i was using mcaffe virus and just recently uninstalled it and now it works great Laughing out loud

Jiyambi's picture

I'm glad!

I'm glad! Laughing out loud

your addon WTFPWNS my wow client

well atm i think i have a solution cause the blizzard addons could be corrupted cause i did something stupid but atm anytime i try and run wow pro and tomtom alone as addons they crash my client

Wrong waypoint in the 28-30 guide for Thousand Needles (Horde)

One of the last quests of the guide, Sacred Fire has a quest turn in waypoint that is wayyyy off. Like, it shows up outside of the Thousand Needles map, into Hillsbrad Foothills, when the turn in is actually in Thunder Bluff.

Otherwise, great =).

Probably due to a lack of a

Probably due to a lack of a |Z| tag, will look into it Smiling

Great job

Long time ghost and user of the tourguide version. Have been trying Z's addon lately but like this one better, even at this early stage. Logged in to my 71 alt and it knew exactly where I was up to. Works like a charm. No bugs so far. Like the clean interface too.

The arrow

My Tomtom arrow dont show up at all.

Jiyambi's picture

What guides are you using?

What guides are you using? Keep in mind that the arrow may not be present for a lot of turn in and accept steps because we are still converting the guide files over, and we are not using LightHeaded anymore for those steps.

Silverchief's picture

Happy to help out

I'll be giving this a run through in Hellfire Peninsula with my DK. I'll let you know if anything pops up

add on leveling

My leveling guide does not show any guides past lvl 60- i think? Will James horde guide for dragon blight be added soon?
love everything you guys have been doing? Would never be as far as I am without you guys. Thanks

Jiyambi's picture

I'm betting you saw the

I'm betting you saw the 55-60 death knight guides at the bottom of the list and thought they were the highest level guides available. If you scroll up, just above those you'll see the 60-80 guides.

Jiyambi's picture

Hmm, that's strange. There

Hmm, that's strange. There should be guides up through level 80. Alliance or Horde?

I have guides that bring me

I have guides that bring me up to 80, horde side when I use your addon.

New Addon Images

Added up to date images displaying some of the nice features of the addon Smiling

Jiyambi's picture

Urdui, I'll respond to each

Urdui, I'll respond to each point:

  • Current Guide Panel - We hope to allow guide scrolling in the main panel in the future, which might help. Also, someone gave me the code to fix the bug where it sometimes doesn't open to the right page, but I lost it Sad I'll have to hunt for it again, completely forgot about that. Believe it or not, this is Blizzard's code's fault, not mine Laughing out loud

  • Open quest log by clicking the quest step - Did you try this? It's already been implemented, but it's possible it's not working properly. Left-clicking should open it.

  • Step wrap - Get me a screenie, since I'm not sure exactly what you mean.

  • Hovering tooltip - already implemented, check display options Laughing out loud

  • Auto-hide in combat option - good suggestion, will add at some point. For now, if it gets in the way, you can double-click the titlebar to hide.

  • Racial Requirements - Just like in Tour Guide. Just use a |R|Your Race| tag when writing the step into the guide, obviously replacing "Your Race" with whatever race it is. Some of the current guides aren't using them where they should, but the functionality IS in there.

Thanks for the suggestions, glad to hear you are enjoying the guide Smiling

Jiyambi's picture

I see what you mean now

I see what you mean now Smiling I'll see what I can add. And I'll look into the click to quest log thing, not sure why it's not working Sad

"The journey is more important than the end or the start" - Mike Shindoa

Is there a solution?

I assumed downloading that this was PnP, I select my guide and click Okay and no quests or any information loads into the new window.

Jiyambi's picture

It should be PnP, I've never

It should be PnP, I've never seen the issue you are describe. I assume from what you said that you see a guide list and guides there, and you see a window, but nothing loads into it? It silently errors out, no error messages?

One thing I might check - if you used our old addon, make sure to delete any WTF files pertaining to WoW-Pro. I'm really not sure how this could cause the problem you are describing, but it's worth trying.

Unfortunately I really am not sure what I can do to troubleshoot the problem you're having - I know it's not something that happens to me or others I've talked to. Try disabling other addons to see if there might be a conflict.

Sike3000's picture

no, there isnt even a guide

no, there isnt even a guide list, its not there, just config and profiles.

Jiyambi's picture

I honestly don't know what

I honestly don't know what to tell you, Sike. It sounds like the WoWPro_Leveling part of the addon is not loading at all. I know you said you have it, but try deleting those folders and downloading them again. Make sure they are enabled. You've probably tried these things but this is all I can think of - I just don't know why that entire addon would not load when it does so for me.

Good luck, sorry I can't help more!

Awesome Job!

Awesome job on the addon! I've already used it for 3 levels on my Mage and it works great. There aren't any bugs I've experienced yet.
Great job!
