Revenge of the Jiyas: WoW-Pro Speed Testing

From Jiyambi's blog, the Journal of J.

Revenge of the Jiya's is a new speed testing project by Jiyambi. In this series I'll be running a small army of alts (all with various versions of "Jiya" as their names) through every guide in the WoW-Pro addon. The goal is to correct mistakes in the guides, get a feel for which guides need the most work, and settle once and for all how fast these guides really are. I'll be testing them on warriors, with NO twinking, NO heirlooms, and NO rested XP.

More about this fun new project after the break!

Grail .vs. WowHead .vs. WoWPro in a 3 way mud wresting match!

If you have been following my blog entries, you know I have been fiddling with different ways of checking the validity of the guides.

Grail is a library addon maintained by Tepes on CurseForge. WowHead certainly needs no introduction.

Renormalizing Our Guides

Recent discussions have made me realize that we ought to be thinking of our guides as databases. Back in the 70's, this nifty new kind of database appeared—called a "Relational Database"—and we programmers thought it was terrific (I was doing CODASYL programming in COBOL at the time: ¡El horror!). There was also this new idea of "Normalization" that popped up.

WoW-Pro in other languages, on the cheap.

So there are two problems to be solved. Lets take a quest: Missing in the Ghostlands, given by "Magistrix Landra Dawnstrider" and turned into "Courier Dawnstrider".

Now each of these NPC's has a unique ID (16210 and 16183) just like the quest is uniquely identified by its ID (9144).

Now in German, the quest is called Verschollen in den Geisterlanden and the NPCs are "Magistrix Landra Morgenwandler" and "Kurier Morgenwandler" respectively.
