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!

I did exactly as you said and

I did exactly as you said and they are still not showing up in the guide list.  Sigh, I hope we get a working update before launch!

There we go! Fresh install

There we go! Fresh install after deleting the saved variables, tried what you said and voila, works like a charm!  

I've edited the valley of the 4 winds.lua to reflect the quest id changes emmah made as well and leading to the Krasarang instead of Kun-Lai.  Is there anything else to do?

Emmaleah's picture

Anything else?

I would check to make sure all the guides are showing in the list on the leveling tab. They new guides are:
Wandering Isles (Panda starting area)
Jade Forest
Valley of the Four Winds
Krasarang Wilds
Kun-Lai Summit
Townlong Stepps
Dread Waste

Even if the autoload of next guide doesn't work, as long as the guides are showing in the leveling tab of the configuration page, you can manually choose your next guide.

I know it would be nice to be perfect on launch, but hey, its better than WoTLK where Zul'Drak, Storm Peaks and Ice Crown weren't done for months after launch.

Emmaleah == bravely leading the way since ... um a long time ago... Smiling

Dread wastes is relatively

Dread wastes is relatively broken at the moment. I'm at the very beginning of the zone and the guide is defaulting to "congratulations, you have finished Dread Wastes" or the brewgarden step, which is near the end in the zone. Resetting the guide does nothing. 

Emmaleah's picture

Dread Waste

are all the steps checked off and that is showing as the current step?

Can you scroll up to the top of the guide.

Can you give any more details?

Ludovicus: could it be because I used 'nil' for next GID? I believe I remember this happening too, but I always just scrolled to the top and went on.  I only took Raji and Emma thru all of dread waste, but I know I had a couple of others in the intro because I was trying to nail down which of the lead in quests give the fligh path to Brewmistress Yi. ( I sure hope Bliz fixxed that one)

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Re: Dread wastes is relatively

Hmm, that is strange.  If you look at the guide steps, do you see any?


all of the guides should be on it on the next update and all the bugs fixed?

Hi, Thanks for the guides..

Hi, Thanks for the guides.. much appreciated!  Will definetly be using on trying to get server first.

Question though... this work around is a little confusing.  Would you be able to elaborate a little on it.  Thanks!

Edit:  btw... these CAPTCHA's suck! lol... 20 tries now

Emmaleah's picture

Vale of eternal Blossoms

I didnt make a guide for Vale of Eternal Blossoms.  Other than daily quests, there are just a handful of quests there and I didn't feel it needed a guide.  Read below for info re : Dread Wastes and Townlong Steppes.

Emmaleah == bravely leading the way since ... um a long time ago... Smiling

hey is all the lands are going to have guides

at the momment the only lands u have on the guide list for over 85 is the jade forest,krasarang wilds and kun-lai summit is there going to be more added on the 26th i hope because i use them alot plus i want the loremaster of pandaria plz let me know it would take a weight off my shoulders

MOP Leveling guides

The guides are all in the current download.  We continue to edit them to make them clearer and or more efficient, so you probably want to get the most recent version on the 24th (or whenever it is ready).  As my comment below says, the guides.xml (pointer file) is missing the entries for the last two zones atm, but Ludovicus plans to fix that soon.

Emmaleah == bravely leading the way since ... um a long time ago... Smiling

Emmaleah's picture

Neutral guides.xml not updated

Ludovicus, you included the new guides in the download, but it seems you missed updating the neutral\guides.xml for Dread Wastes and Townlong. 

Everyone else, if you want to see the Townlong and Dread Wastes guides, open the guides.xml located in the neutral directory and add those two file names following the pattern of all the guides above.

Emmaleah == bravely leading the way since ... um a long time ago... Smiling

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Re: Neutral guides.xml not updated

Oh pooh.  I'll fix it as soon as I get home.  On a business trip this week.

Thanks for the report and all your hard work, Emmaleah.


Completed quests update?

I have been using this addon for ages and love it, really helpful.

But since 5.0.4  while everything still works, it no longer keeps track of which quests I have done.  When I load any guide it shows as 0/xx rather than tracking which quests I have already done in that zone.

Any ideas on what I could do?  I have reinstalled it a few times and kept an eye on every update, but still have this issue.  that said everything else works great.  I just don't want to have to try follow every waypoint and arrow trying to "mark off" what has been done in each zone.  I know I will miss things or skip things lol



Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Re: Completed quests update?

I have been seeing the same problem myself and have been holding back on making an update until I got the bloody bug fixed.

I had a solution that worked on PC's but did not work on Mac's that was a WoW client bug, that seems to have been fixed earlier this week.

I am now preparing to make an update.


Adjust Guide for XP Bonus


In prep for MoP, I have a question about adjusting the guide for xp bonuses.

I'll be starting a Pandaren with full heirlooms plus the monk quest bonus XP. I'm worried the guide will have me in one area for too long. Does the addon automatically adjust or is there a setting I need to change somewhere?


Emmaleah's picture

Rank Setting

There is a setting in the configuration menu for Rank 1 is absolutely everything, 2 is basically all but the annoying or hard quests and 3 includes ONLY the critical quest lines.  That being said, not all guides are upgraded to use the Rank tag, and not all authors who use it will apply the definition the same way.  I personally keep it set on 1 and just manually check off whatever I dont want to do.


unrelated aside to admins... did you change the captcha database? I can actually read this one!

Emmaleah == bravely leading the way since ... um a long time ago... Smiling

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Re: Rank Setting

I think it is exactly the other way around:

  1. Only Critical quest lines

  2. Everything except group or silly quests

  3. You want Loremaster and/or are OCD


Addon? Date?

The addon page says it will be updated on the 5th of Sept and its hte 12th now.  Typo or it just hasn't happened?


I have downloaded the newest update multiple times from, but in game the guide is telling me I am using a trial version and need to download the guide on your site to get more guides......I'm lost   0.o     I downloaded it here......

Emmaleah's picture

Wow-pro trial?

The only possible things I can think of that would behave as you have described are:

1) you didnt delete the trial directory first so something is still left from the trial version.

2) you managed to download the trial version from here (the big yellow download button is linked to the correct version, but Im sure the trial is available somewhere.  Did you download from ? click the big yellow download button that says v 2.3.1 right below it.

3) you have more than one installed version of wow, and you are downloading the correct version of wow-pro into a version of wow that is not the one you are playing.

I imagine there are other possibilities, but those are what come to mind.

Emmaleah == bravely leading the way since ... um a long time ago... Smiling

Wow-pro trial?

   Thank you so much for your help. I did indeed have 2 WoW folders, deleted the one that obviously wasn't correct. Also, I didn't delete the trial version, so now it is working correctly!!!  I deeply appreciate the walkthrough on the fix  :)

yeah   we want to know why it

yeah   we want to know why it hasnt been updated yet ive been having issues with the gps part of wow pro

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Re: yeah we want to know why it

Sorry about not updating the front page with the next expected date for updates.

There were a few bugs that I was tracking down that took longer to fix than I anticipated.

I'll cut a release today (9/15).

Typo in Uldum Guide

Step 314 for the quest Bad Datas, says spead to instead of speak to Harrison Jones.

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Re: Typo in Uldum Guide


Keep it up!!!

As a long time user of James' guides I just got back to WOW after a 3 year hiatus and found the addon to be great... I could be biased because when I left the game I was the Guildmaster of "Disciples of Jame" (which I gave up while I was gone)... I realized that I had never told you how great of a job you are doing... Keep it up...

minor error

I know this is little, but you have the year wrong(2011) in the Last updated information above.

Re: Minor Error

LOL, thanks for pointing it out.

Tomtom & Carbonite won't work

I can't get TomTom or Carbonite to work, no matter what.

Yes i installed them correctly, yes i tried re rer er erererererere re and re download and reinstalling them, no results, they simply don't get installed, doesn't show up ingame and Wow-pro even notifies me that i don't have either of them installed.

Shouldn't have anything to do with todays patch either, as they didn't work yesterday before the patch..

What do?

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Re: Tomtom & Carbonite won't work

Well, the easy answer is that they can't be installed correctly.

Is there a folder called "TomTom" right next to the folder called "WoWPro" in the Addons directory?

What does your <WOW INSTALL DIRECTORY>/Logs/FrameXML.log file say?



Well, yeah, i just threw it

Well, yeah, i just threw it in the AddOn folder.

Carbonite/TomTom not working

Check that they extracted/installed correctly and you didn't gain an extra folder.

They should look something like this .../World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns/TomTom/TomTom files (eg .lua .toc etc etc).

If you have an extra folder in there like .../World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns/TomTom/TomTom/TomTom files, the game client can't see the toc file (as it's located 1 folder further down the chain) and hence won't load the addon.

Also depending on your operating system, and when, how and where you installed the game you could have 2 addon directories (Windows Vista/7) especially if you upgraded from Windows XP after WoW was installed.

No extra folders I'm running

Feature request

Not being a dev or knowing much about how to get into the inner workings I have NO CLUE if this is possible.  I would however find it ever so handy. 

I wish there was a button that could be added to the WOW-Pro guide frame either at the top , (beside the one telling us to train) or beside the individual quest (preferred- but I expect more difficult -- where the "use" item is) that would show up whenever a quest is turned into your UI.  I am all the time missing turning those in, so I have to keep my blizzard quest log open so I can notice them. which takes up too much screen real estate. 

It doesnt help that I prefer questguru's quest log and they have this minimilist approach (which I LIKE in every other aspect) so that there is a faintly flashing grey line over any quest that turns in, to a UI Alert., when I am using it it is almost impossible to notice)  But it is a problem with the default UI too, because that just takes up WAY too much space.

I would prefer to be able to use WoW Pro INSTEAD of a quest log instead of in addition to a quest log.  Maybe just a key binding that opened the quest log  (oh wait.. isnt that the L key --- thats not what I mean) to the particular quest that you need to turn in (i.e. the page with "complete quest" button on it.)

Editted to add another one that I think would be useful.

A differant non combat tag, the existing NC with the gear and another one, for chat, that would put the little chat img at the beginning of the step,  We get a LOT of quests in MOP that have up go talk to "soandso" (totally unrelated aside...remember the original EQ tutorial?).  I was looking thru the list of tags and C is available as it appears you can use tags that are also in use as same letter T = turn in at the beginning of the line but |T| = target, so... C ought to work?

error with WoW Pro Addon in MoP Beta


ive been trying out the WoW Pro addon on MoP Beta. My first quick test showed, it works ok so far.

I got the following error: WoWPro: Zone [Valley of the Four Winds] not found. Using map id 807

Will this error cause any trouble with the addon or the recorder ?

Can it be fixed and how ?




Emmaleah's picture

This is because the list of

This is because the list of zones hasn't been updated.  It doesnt affect how the addon works, other than you get an error message in your chat the first time it reads each step that has a zone name it doenst know (i.e. all of them). 

 I dont know where its coming from.  I re re-downloaded TomTom, making sure the libmapdata file included MOP info (from Ace).  I edited the wowpro-mapping.lua file to add in one zone, to see if that would change anything, it didn't.  But... the program seems to work fine as long as you dont want to put any waypoints outside of the current zone.  ( a problem in the Krasarang guide I made as well as Kun-Lei)

Error in Guide list in latest MoP Beta Patch


I would like to help test the guides and correct them, but the Addon doesnt work properly.

With the latest MoP Beta Patch the Guide list suddenly shows a TAB called Leveling and you cant choose anymore between neutral, horde, alliance. It seems to be set to neutral and not even show the TAB as neutral.

I am kind of disappointed, cause it seems deserted here on the forums and no reaction from Ludovicus Major either.

I like this Addon and it needs an update soon, cause the Beta wont last many more days.




Emmaleah's picture

For me anyway, it has shown

For me anyway, it has shown blank, until you click on the tab.  I believe this was a fix to when they originally added the tabs they would bleed thru and you would see ALL the guides listed (one on top of the other, i.e. unreadable), Now, the tabs are blank until you actually click on them, then the list shows up. (for whatever tab you chose)

@Emmaleah My point was that i


My point was that i click on the tab called "leveling" and i dont see neutral, horde, alliance anymore.

This changed like 3-4 patches ago. It was fine before that.

I went AWOL from WoW for a

I went AWOL from WoW for a little bit and lost most of what little knowledge I had of it, but I remember using a quest addon to help out. I checked out Curse and saw Quest Helper and thought that was what I used. With it, I became frustrated, annoyed, and finally just gave p using it because it wasn't up to date and most markers simply were not there. Then I finally figured out it was this addon, the WoW-Pro Quest addon that I had used in the past. I am so thankful you guys are still on it and working hard, and I want to let you all know how great your work is. It's made questing not only easy, but fun, professional, and very educational in terms of the quirks of the game. This addon is a MUST have, and belongs to a Hall of Fame of WoW addons. Thank you all again for your work!


A little buggy at times

This addon is extremely helpful. However, some steps won't auto-complete (travel steps for example) which wouldn't be a problem except sometimes the step checkbox is not clickable. Not at all. I spend forever hovering over and no tooltip appears. I click like a madman and it doesn't progress. The only way to check off that step then would be to open the current guide and manually check off the step that way which is extremely counter-productive.

I don't know whether this is a known bug but as the addon hasn't received an update yet I'm guessing not.


As I side note I use the addon alongside Carbonite and they work together fantastically. A great combination!

iv tryed to downlaod this and

iv tryed to downlaod this and when i used my curse client it says the guide is a 2.1.26 trial version how the i ge tthe 2.2.5 version that iv downaleded 3 times from here? also the guide is skipping steps it has done it twice for me so far once in Ashenvale now once in desloace it skipped 3 parts to kill naga to get the satchel then hearth back and turn in

Curse Update

Don't use curse to update it after you download it from here.  Curse only contsains the trial version.

i never did i had my curse

i never did i had my curse just fully ignored the update so it wont update or tell me but ya iv seen over 7 steps skipped so far in the guide 1 in ashenvale and 6 in desolace whats with this? and i swear the captcha is bugging the heck out of me

Midsummer Fire Festival (Alliance) Error

Step # 65: asks you to go to ratchet but it sends you to Echo Isles... the correct location is Northern Barrens 70, 73

That would be because the

That would be because the syntax of the guide is wrong for that waypoint, resulting in an attempt to send you to the area "Midsummer Fire Festival", and since that zone does not exist, it's using the current area, which in your case would have been Durotar, I guess...

Midsummer Festival Guide (Addon Version)

Step #21 has you go and buy Juggling Torches x20. However the location it sends you to doesn't have a Midsummer supplier, instead there is nothing here. The location should be changed to Darnassus (61, 48).

WoW Addon

I got error page  that says "404 or something like that, what can i do?.... perhaps is something bad with my conection but everything seems to work fine...

In the works ... Wow-Pro + Grail.

I have been experimenting with an integration between Wow-Pro and Grail.

I was able to use it successfully to pick a quest I wanted to complete and the program chose all the prerequisite quests automatically!

Useful for twinks or when you only care about a particular quest item.
