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!
  3. OPTIONAL: You may also want to download Lightheaded. While almost all of our guides provide their own coordinates, we haven't been able to update some of the older guides yet and our addon can pull them automatically from Lightheaded in the meantime!
  4. Unzip the downloaded files into your addons directory. (How do I unzip the file?)

    Windows XP location:

      C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons

    Windows Vista/7 location:

      C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons

    Mac location:

      Macintosh Main HD/Applications/World of Warcraft/Interface/Addons
  5. 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!

Ah, this may be why I can't

Ah, this may be why I can't reproduce it - I generally play with the auto-resizing on. I'm wondering if there are some weird loops getting stuck due to the step hide/show logic that turns on with manual resizing.

I'll see if I can reproduce it with manual resizing turned on, and try and find where the root of the issue is. Thanks again for the report and the possible solution folks Smiling

Arrow Problems

Hi, i've been using your guides since wotlk was released and i must say that they are brilliant. Today i noticed that you had brought out your new addon so installed it, however i'm having problems with the tomtom arrow. For some reason the waypoints arent added automatically and the arrow doesnt show up. I had no problems with the previous addon, i'm currently using the Howling Fjord guide.

Jiyambi's picture

Hmmm, that guide is working

Hmmm, that guide is working for me Sad All I can recommend at the moment is to make sure you have the newest version of TomTom installed and enabled.

It is missing some arrows

The Howling Fjord guide he mentoined is missing some arrows, as many people pointed out here before about other guides too. At least for the Horde one, starting somewhere in the second third of the guide, all waypoins stops, there are just coordinates in step notes.

However, if you manually try to add tag M|XX YY| to any part of the guide .lua, it works, so its seems like nothing else than problems in guide script, more than addon problems, and because of so, I dont think newest TomTom would help much.

You just have to wait until next version of WoW-Pro, when it starts reading waypoints from Blizzard POIs, as Jame told several times already.

First I thought something wrong happened to my addon when it stopped showing arrows, but then just by opening guidename.lua you will see there are simply missing tags for automatic coordinates in the later stages of the guide.

Jiyambi's picture

Thanks for the

Thanks for the clarification, Lyrickcze. That's pretty much spot on, I guess with all the other bug reports I assumed there was something else going wrong, but it's probably just a case of expecting coordinates where none were provided.

Don't worry, I'm going to release an update this week (hopefully tomorrow) that should fix some (though not all) of the missing coordinate issues.

Great add-on for new and returning players!

I downloaded this for my brother and I to aid us in leveling our characters and overall I am very impressed! Last I played WoW, pre-BC (specifically just prior to the release of the AQ raid dungeon), there was nothing like this in the add-on scene.

As a player that has been away from WoW for several years and especially in regard to my brother who is "horrible" at this game but loves it still, this add-on is a great help! As has been mentioned before, the add-on itself has many issues here and there, missing waypoints, steps not updating, and etc, but overall the guides and the way they are implemented within the game have been a great help to us!

Eagerly looking forward to future versions! Are there any updates planned prior to the release of Cataclysm? I'm sure you are hard at work on the Cataclysm release.

Jiyambi's picture

There will be an update this

There will be an update this week, with some new features and some bug fixes. We are still not prioritizing the pre-level-60 guides due to Cataclysm making them obsolete, but some fixes may be implemented depending on how much time the guide editors have.

Excellent add-on - congrats!

Hi there,

As a long time user of wow-pro for the written guides and a semi-recent user of the old addon, I must say that your own new addon is really great!!!

I decided to try the new addon with a level 26 warlock, and I wanted to make sure I had done all steps from the leveling guides starting from 1. Basically the guides works very fine, but there are (naturally I guess) a few issues with wrong waypoints, for example "Protecting the Herd" in Dun Morogh points to Elwynn Forest which is a bit confusing. Other than that is is VERY impressive.

I just wanted to bring your attention to a few things that I feel could be better. First the addon seems less "intelligent" than the old. By that I mean when you are directed to a quest via travel or flight, I think the old addon closed those steps, when you selected the quest (as if it deducted you had to be there). Secondly the addon is sometimes rather sluggish updating when you accept or hand in quests which sometimes can be very confusing when you are on a questline named identically. Maybe you could add a query option so the user could query the server for completed quests - I am not sure if that is how the addon operates.

I also have a suggestion in terms of guides - a "Loremaster" guide for Eastern Kingdom and Kalimdor. I guess it could be constructed programmatically by simply listing all known quests for a certain continent and then let the user see zones with missing quests.

I am very impressed with the level of commitment you folks at wow-pro are showing year after year - kudos to you for bringing us the best guides and related tools all free of charge Smiling

Best regards

Jiyambi's picture

Thanks for the detailed

Thanks for the detailed feedback!

There are definitely some incorrect waypoints sprinkled through the guides, especially in the older 1-60 guides - and unfortunately we won't be prioritizing those 1-60 guides since they will become obsolete in the expansion Sad

The addon should auto-complete in much the same way as the old one did, so I'm not sure where the behavior your describing is going wrong. Next time something that seems funny occurs, try to write down exactly what step and in what guide it happens with, and leave a comment for me. I can more easily figure out what's going on then Smiling

In terms of the server query - the addon does this every time you load up, or when you /reload. It builds a database of completed quests, and checks off any steps that are associated with those quest IDs. Every time you complete a quest, it adds that quest ID to your completed quest database, since the database can only be refreshed from the server once every 10 minutes.

Having a way to search the database for a quest might be nice... but it's also a little out of the scope of this addon, so I'm not sure I'll be adding it any time soon, if ever. I'm betting there are other addons out there that DO provide that functionality in particular, though Smiling

A Loremaster guide would be great! However, I certainly don't have time to write one at the moment, so it would be up to our other great contributors to do - and time is running out, since Cataclysm will definitely change how the Loremaster achievement/title works. For now, I suggest the addon EveryQuest for this if you are working for your title.

In Cataclysm I plan for our questing guide to cover every quest in a zone, and you can filter out lower XP quests if you want to via a sliding scale (for people with heirloom gear or recruit a friend bonuses, etc.)

I will keep an eye open for next time I think it doesn't update

Hi Jiyambi,

Thanks for your answer.

Regarding the old guides - don't get me wrong, I fully understand and appreciate your priorities Smiling

When I come across the same behavior again, I will try to describe it in details.

Do you mean I can simply type /reload in chat to get the guide updated? I wasn't aware of that I must admit - that is basically what I was asking for.

Regarding the Loremaster stuff, it is not something I am working on myself, but I am helping a friend get there and when you get down to the last 10-20 quests it begins to be a little hard to find the missing ones - especially because you don't know what zones you have leftovers in. Totally different in Outland and Northrend, which are easy by comparison (IMHO).

I have been playing a few more levels now and the addon is still doing great - I doubt very much you can get anything better, not even if you pay a lot of $$$ for it Sticking out tongue

Best regards

Jiyambi's picture just released an just released an article about Loremaster addons:

Hope that's helpful!

Jiyambi's picture

Oh trust me, I feel your

Oh trust me, I feel your pain with Loremaster. I did it without EveryQuest, before they allowed server queries for completed quests. Needless to say, it was intense! Loremaster of Kalimdor was definitely one of the hardest ones. I also found Nagrand and Blade's Edge pretty challenging. The rest weren't too bad.

Flight Path Step/WayPoint

Hi, I seem to be having some wierd issues regarding the waypoints/steps for Flight Paths. Whether it is to go to the Flight Path, to obtain it as a new Flight Path, or just to go to one to fly somewhere. They seem to be checking themselves off before I even reach the step (causing me to be 'lost' in regards to where I should go). The only way I can seem to fix it is either by utilizing the 'Reset the Current Guide' option. Or by going into the 'Current Guide' option and manually un-checking the Flight Path steps. I am not quite sure why it is doing this =/

Jiyambi's picture

Hmmm. I have had this issue

Hmmm. I have had this issue reported once before, but have never experienced it myself. Is it with every guide? Or only one specific guide? Any details you can provide would be great, as I'm uncertain where the error is coming from. But since this is the second report, I'm assuming it's more than just a fluke.

Guides that I remember

I can't quite say exactly when I noticed it, as it isn't too noticeable, because I still know where to go even when it doesn't tell me to go to the Flight Point. But I seem to have noticed it starting around the following guide: Ashenvale (26-27) Author: Jame.
I am currently on the guide: Thousand Needles (28-30) Author: Jame and it seems to have marked off the following steps as soon as I loaded/started the guide: Feralas (run to), Camp Mojache (Get FP), ThunderBluff (Fly to), TB (Get FP) (these steps are near the end of said guide)

Could the Flight Path stuff be getting screwed with, by using the Enhanced Flight Map Addon (Author: Lysida) and using its option to load all the Horde FP Data?

Jiyambi's picture

No, I don't think so, based

No, I don't think so, based on the way we collect the information and the fact that run/travel steps are effected too, not just get flight path steps.

Are you using a non-english client? I don't see why this would produce this particular error, but it's worth asking.

Nope, not using a

Nope, not using a non-english client =/ I am stumped as to what might be doing this. Especially since it seems to be random steps taht it is 'auto completing'. I can not seem to find any certain pattern to which steps it is checking off on its own. At first it seemed to be the FP steps (getting new FP or Flying somewhere) but as I said in my last reply, now I noticed it with a few other steps.

Jiyambi's picture

Upon looking at the specific

Upon looking at the specific steps involved, I know exactly why this is happening.

Those run steps are tied with turning in the quest "Melor Sends Word" - I'm betting you already turned it in. The guide will automatically mark those complete if that quest is complete.

In the future I'm going to be adding a way for steps to depend on *multiple* quests, not just one - since you need to go to TB in this case to pick up Steelsnap, turn in Sacred Fire, and also pick up Arikara.

Hope that clears things up!

Ya!!! I had already turned

Ya!!! I had already turned that quest in. After posting my last reply, that though crossed my mind. I would say though, the only problem with the way it currently works, is that is marks off the fly to TB step, so some people might not know where to go to get the Steelsnap quest (unless that step is getting check off for some other reason), which if that's the case, I have decided it's just my computer being stupid and wanting to piss me off xD but I have not seen it happen again, so maybe it was just some wierd fluke xD

Jiyambi's picture

No, it's definitely a

No, it's definitely a problem for the exact reason you stated - you need to go there to pick up Steelsnap and the other quests. Hoping to fix this in the future Smiling

Some feedback

First, I want to thank the wow-pro folks for coming up with a new addon to fill the void left by the previous best-of-breed addon in this space. I was disappointed in the direction that addon took recently. Your efforts in this space are appreciated.

I've been using the addon for leveling my horde rogue in Northrend. After many hours of use, I only have a few complaints.

Sections of the guides where you do thing A while in route to do things B C and D tend to be confusing to me because they float the to the top of the list as though they need to be done next in line. I realize they have a different icon typically than the usual quest icon. However, I'd prefer to have a stronger delineation for that type of objective, such as a UI horizontal bar element separating these objective types from the rest of the list. I think this would make them both more prominent while also indicating their meaning more strongly. Whether they belong at the top of the list or the bottom could then be changed by preference of the user.

I have noticed a lack of waypoints here and there, but that isn't really an issue with the addon itself.

One other irritant is the addon not removing followups or steps to quests that I have skipped.

The Right-click UI menu could use some cleanup and consolidation. In fact, it only really needs three entries.
Addon Config
Guide Config
Guide List

Also, clicking Guide List for example, currently doesn't consistently bring me to the actual guide list. Sometimes, it brings me to the "Wow-Pro Leveling" entry in the Blizzard Interface screen, with the "Wow-Pro Leveling" expansion element in it's "-" or expanded mode. I then have to click the actual "Guide List" entry. Sometimes, if I've previously opened a different addon's config menu in the Blizzard UI, choosing a link from the addon's right-click context menu as above will open the Blizzard UI to the addon I last configured, and not the Wow-Pro addon as I expected.

The "Number of Steps" Slider in Guide Display config doesn't currently do anything when I slide it. I can affect the number of steps show by adjusting the "Spacing" slider. Ah, nevermind. I see what's going on. The "Number of Steps" slider doesn't do anything unless "Manual Step Number" is checked. Might consider dimming that slider if the checkbox is empty, and placing them both on the same line.

Also, it seems that if you manipulate the "Manual Step Number" checkbox, make a change with the attached slider, then revert the Manual Step Number checkbox, the addon UI will not automatically respect the "Spacing" slider to set the number of viewed quest steps. I'm not sure if that's intended or not. It wasn't the behavior I expected, FWIW.

Last point: The Current Guide entry in the config UI, which lists a "full transcript of the current guide," might be better implemented as a UI element on the main addon UI, rather than as an option in the Blizzard addon config interface. Maybe open a window from a UI button in the quest listbox?

Overall, these are really just polish issues. The underlying functionality (quest skipping bugs aside) is top-notch, and it's been a joy to use overall. Please keep up the good work, and sorry about the wall of text.

Thank you very much for the

Thank you very much for the detailed feedback!

Sticky Steps: I'm assuming this is what you are referring to in the first paragraph. The option to further customize and move the "sticky step" window may be something added in the future - for now you can change the background color to more clearly delineate these steps, but you're right, a bit more separation would be useful. This may be some time in coming, but it's something I'll consider adding Smiling

Waypoint Errors/Lack: Some of this will be fixed in the next patch when we pull info from Blizzard's POI. Some will be updated, especially those in Outland and Northrend. Others may not get updated since the 1-60 zones will be wiped out in the expansion.

Right-Click Menu: I feel that the current complexity of the menu is okay. As a user as well as a coder, I use all of the choices regularly. When you can save the user an extra click with very little (if any) trouble - i.e. adding an extra option - I see no reason not to do so.

Options not opening to the right page: Actually this is Blizzard's fault, and occurs when you have a full list of addons in the control panel. Work around code added in the next version.

Number of Steps: It's on the same line in the default view, I believe, but you may have an addon which extends your config panel, which may be changing your view. Regardless, you're right, it's not as intuitive as it should be Smiling Will fix!

Spacing Issue: Not sure exactly what you mean, will experiment with the procedure you describe when I have a few (heading to bed after this so won't be tonight).

Current Guide: True, could be opened in a new window similar to how Tour Guide handles this functionality. I'm also hoping to simply allow scrolling through the main UI element in the future.

Quest skipping issues: I want to add a much deeper feature into the addon for skipping steps. I'm hoping to allow multiple steps to be based on it, and for the addon to recognize the difference between a "skipped" step and a completed one. So look for more support for this in the future (not in the next version but hopefully soon after).

The next version of the addon should be released in the next week, so look forward to it Smiling Thanks again for the detailed feedback, very helpful!

Thank you for graciously

Thank you for graciously accepting said feedback.

As you may have guessed, I have something of a technical background, so I tried to give enough detail for you to reproduce any issues, since it sure would annoy me if I were in your place and the feedback I got was "it doesn't work." Smiling

Stick Step "Pane": I didn't realize that the background color adjustments would affect this area by itself. I assumed that the color adjuster worked on the whole quest list element. I will give that a try then. Color, while I didn't think of it, would suffice for stronger visual separation of the Sticky Steps from normal quest steps. The ability to change that color is even better, imo.

Right-Click menu: I'm a big fan of minimalism in my interfaces, so my predilection is to eliminate extra menu elements for thing less-often used. But hey, this is your work not mine. Smiling

Number of Steps: So far as I'm aware, I don't have any addons that do anything to the Blizzard addon interface. I won't say it's impossible, but I couldn't think of what addon it would be off the top of my head. On my install, I have Padding slider, Spacing slider, Manual Step Number checkbox on one line. Underneath is the Number of Steps slider. Underneath that is Quest Tracking. ( And while I'm looking, sure enough, there's Sticky Step color. My bad. Laughing out loud )

Glad to hear there's a good deal of refinement coming in the next version. I look forward to it.

Jiyambi's picture

Hmmm, I am wondering if

Hmmm, I am wondering if perhaps we are referring to something different when we are talking about the "sticky" steps. Because they aren't widely implemented in the guide yet, and are by default a different color.

I'm wondering if you are referring to the "note" text (explanation) vs. the "quest tracking" text (just like the in game quest tracker). If this is the case, you can't change the background at the moment, but you *can* change the text size, color, and font.

Let me know if you have any more suggestions or if that was unclear, as I'm used to a certain jargon for the addon's anatomy which has developed while creating the addon that users may not find intuitive Eye

Sure. I had some steps in

Sure. I had some steps in the Howling Fjord guide that appeared to be Sticky. They stayed at the top of the quest list, had an icon that looked like a Skull and crossbones with a red aura. The quest notes icon I think is the one that looks like a page from a book. I don't recall for sure, but there may have been text that said "On your way..." or something like that. It was several days ago, and not something I paid a whole lot of attention to after I figured out what significance they had.

I currently have the Quest Step UI with the alpha channel set to 0, and no border, so that it looks like just floating text. The very top portion, where the right-click context menu is active, is also set this way. I don't know if this would interfere with any default coloring or not. I haven't played any since last night, so I haven't had the chance to mess around any with any Sticky steps that come up. As soon as I notice any, I'll give it a try and see what I can do.

Jiyambi's picture

Sticky steps have their own

Sticky steps have their own background color setting, so unless you changed that, it's default is a light gray background.

Sticky steps can use any icon type, it's simply a modification of the normal type. They will stay up at the top of the window, colored whatever color you set them as, under a little heading saying "As you go...". So now if you see them you'll know what they are Laughing out loud

couple of issues

Started leveling via the Mulgore guide. Some waypoints dont show.

Also the addon is causing my wow to crash used the old addon without any problems at all

Jiyambi's picture

Some of the waypoints are

Some of the waypoints are still missing, and may not be added until after Cataclysm since those areas will change drastically at that time.

Can you describe what you are doing when the addon causes your client to crash? Then I can hopefully find the problem and fix it!

You are welcome to continue using the old addon, but we won't be able to update or distribute it in the future, sadly.


Hi, i'm using your new levelling addon, with a french client. I love it, but in the notes of the objectives, there aren't coordinates, like "57 , 45", there is just "go to , .". There are however the waypoint on my map, and the arrow. On a screenshot of this new addon i saw this coordinates, so how can i have them ?
With the old levelling addon i had the coordinates, and there was, in the options, "montre les coordonnées des notes", so in english "show the coordinates of the notes". But in the new addon, there isn't this.

Jiyambi's picture

In the new addon, we decided

In the new addon, we decided for *most* people, it would be more aesthetically pleasing to not show the coordinates by default. However, in the new version which will be released next week, there will be an option to display the coordinates at the end of the note text, very much like how it used to look.

Elywind Forest Guide [human starting area]

I went through the Human starting area guide, and found lots of problems when the guide had me go to Dun Morogh and Loch Modan. Most of the quest waypoints actually point to Elywind Woods coordinates. Here is the list that I made.

Public servant, Troggs , Protecting the herd, Stormpike's Delivery,

There were more, but that's all I wrote down, So sorry.


IC waypoints basically dont work and the quest list doesnt update if I accept a quest

An Option to Hide/Turn Off Blizzard's Quest Tracker

As I am here checking out a guide, I'll ask this here...
While it is nice to have if you want to turn on the ability to track achievements (see what books are in the area, what animals to /love, kill, etc.) that will eventually be a module of its own. (Rather than have written guides, would we be able to simply add a check mark to the achievement to track in wow-pro and then simply pull from Blizzard's API... if the API exposes that, which seeing that it gives it to its own quest tracker, I would think it would.)
Anyhow, while it is nice to have for achievements, it would be nice to have the option to just hide it so one doesn't need to minimize it every time you login... unless I am missing an option to do that manually elsewhere.

Jiyambi's picture

I think you might be missing

I think you might be missing a way to do it manually. I don't have time to log in right now, but I know I don't have an addon dealing with the quest tracker and it never shows up for me. I think you may just need to turn off automatic quest tracking.

27-28 Stonetalon

Just played through the level 27-28 stonetalon mountains guide. No waypoints for any of the objectives =(

Jiyambi's picture

Drat, looks like this one

Drat, looks like this one didn't get converted when Peter did all the automatic conversions.

Should be a bit better in the next update when the addon pulls coordinates from Blizzard's quest POIs. For now, unfortunately you'll just have to grin and bear it. I'm not sure this part of the guide will even get updated since Cataclysm will make it completely irrelevant, but I'll put it on the issue tracker Smiling


Hi, I am currently on the 'Mulgore Guide (1-12) Author: Shinke' and I would say, atleast 80% of the Steps do not have Waypoints. Is this a problem with the Add-on, or just this specific guide? I am using WoW-Pro v1.0.0 and TomTom r240-release

Jiyambi's picture

It's mostly a problem with

It's mostly a problem with the guide file. We are still transition from our old addon to the new one, so some of the guides are missing waypoints. The next version of the addon, which will hopefully be ready next week, will be able to pull missing waypoints from Blizzard's quest POI system if they are available, so that should help.

Kostada's picture

Just noticed a little thing

Just noticed a little thing in the Feralas section of the guide involving Xerash Fireblade.

The guide sends us to Orgrimmar to talk to Neeru, however this isn't the person we have to turn it in to.

Turns out it was changed in 3.2 to giving it to Xerash instead of Neeru... might want to fix that. Smiling

Comment me on my blog.

I'm sure you're already

I'm sure you're already aware but the guide progress isn't saved to character specific profiles but globally. I just noticed this when I was doing some northrend zones with 2 characters.

One collective ticket / comment site would be good for knowing what has been reported already and to see if you've answered already. I don't like reporting something that's already known and reported but I don't like going through 4 different release sites and look for comments or tickets either. And it will get to be a pain to manage. :/

Jiyambi's picture

Snief - this should NOT be

Snief - this should NOT be the case. The guide progress should be saved individually, via Ace's database system. I will look into this, but it is definitely intended to be saved on a character specific basis.

As for a single site, there is one. As I mention in the article above, I prefer people to use gitthub's issue tracker to report issues. I've been copy/pasting most (but not all, I get lazy/forgetful sometimes) issues reported elsewhere to that site.

Mor Hellfire

Ok, finished Hellfire now. That doesn't mean i've found all of the faults though, as I only started with the new addon halfway through.

1. When picking up the quest "Naladu", tomtom points to the NPC called Naladu, rather than the quest giver.

2. When doing "The Dreghood Elders", tomtom only points towards the first elder you release, and not the other two. (Now this one was interesting, because it seems that the objectives tomtom points toward are missing coordinates in the objective descriptions, while the objectives tomtom is missing have their coordinates in the description. Go figure)

3. For the following quest pick-ups, tomtom pointed about 4000 yards away from where it should:
-"The Umbrafen Tribe"
-"Plants of Zangarmarsh"
-"The Dying Balance"
-"Disturbance at Umbrafen"
-"A Warm Welcome"
The next one also has the turn in pointing at a weird place:
-"The Cenarion Expedition"

4. For the following quest pickups there was no tomtom arrow at all:
-"Leader of the Darkcrest"
-"Leader of the Bloodscale"
-"Warden Hamoot" (Getting or turning in)
-"Source of the Corruption (Turning in)

5. Before handing in "The Demoniac Scryer", you're told to fly to Thrallmar, even though you are in the Mag'Har outpost, where there is no flight point.

And that's it =) Zangarmarsh tomorrow.

Jiyambi's picture

All due to either the

All due to either the automatic tool use to transfer the guides from the old format to the new, due to no longer using LightHeaded, OR due to lack of zone tags. I'll copy these to the issue list, hopefully one of the editors can get to them soon Smiling

Thanks very much for the detailed report, this helps a lot!

Hellfire Peninsula

Hey there, finishing up after a day of leveling and thought i'd share some problems I had with the guide.

During the final step of "Marking the Path", the waypoint Tomtom shows is a good deal north of the area you should be going.

When doing "A Debilitating Sickness", the waypoint Tomtom shows is at a location of the item you are looking for inside the cave you have to find. Following the waypoint led me to a very solid cliff a little way away from the entrance to the cave. Not sure if this was intended or not.

And also, i've been wondering if it wouldn't be better to instruct the player to collect all the quests in a town at once rather than only picking them up when you need them. It's a little confusing sometimes to hunt down the quests you haven't yet picked up.

That's it for now. Let me know if you'd like these sorts of reports in a different place or format.

Great Add-on, team. However, there is a problem with one of the guides in it. In the last Badlands guide, you pick up the quests Coolant Heads Prevail and a few others that require items. I do not remember anywhere in this guide or recent ones telling you to buy the items for these quests, unless there is a way to purchase them without it.

Other than that, great job.

Comment me on my blog.

One thing I noticed is that if in the guide there's no direct instructions to kill something or go somewhere, like grind till you hit 18, I get a ton of lua errors over and over. Just mentioning it otherwise its a fantastic addon. Thanks

Hmm. So you mean if there's no note text (the yellow text)? I haven't noticed this issue in the guides I've tested Sad What version are you running, 1.0.0 or 1.0.1? You can check this on the main "Config" page.

Its Tomtom that errors. When I got the error today I checked and according to my curse client I have 1.0 I don't see an option for a 1.0.1 where would I get that? Thanks.

1.0.1 is a beta build which

1.0.1 is a beta build which basically just includes more code to enable localizations (use of the addon in non-English clients). It can be found on github.

If you get a chance, copy+paste one of the errors here. That will help me find the source of the problem. Thanks! Smiling
