I've been toying around with the addon in recent weeks. I just noticed for an Alliance character that within the Garrison Buildings guide it recommends that I accept the quest The Headhunter's Harvest from an NPC named Akanja. That NPC happens to only reside in the Horde Frostwall garrison....
(And this in spite of having already completed the equivalent Alliance quest from Lysa Serion in the Alliance Lunarfall garrison.)
Fixed it. Thanks for noticing!
Emmaleah == bravely leading the way since ... um a long time ago...
Just running a lowbie through Eastern Plaguelands, and I took the quest "Nobody To Blame But Myself", which then had me take Fiona's carriage to the next point. At the next tower, I was directed to sell/restock/repair at Patricia Marshall... all the way back at Light's Hope Chapel. Argus Highbeacon is standing right next to the quest turn-in and functions the same way. I suspect this was an error, and he was the intended target.
Moved to before the turn in of Impatience, so that it would be more easily noticed. Either someone had already corrected this (but didn't log it in the revision log) or it was actually ok before, as I found it to be after accepting the quest but before hopping in Fiona's Carriage.
There is a point in the Suramar guide (around point 245) that guides you, as a tailor, to go to find the first tailor Leymaster. Couple problems with this. They teach you the Imbued items, which I had not yet unlocked because I was still working on the regular tailor quests (this requires you to enter Violet Hold to find Lyndras).
Once you find Lyndras, the guide changed on me and pointed to the tailor shop, where I finished the quests I already knew about. THEN the quest giver instructs you to find the Leymaster the guide had already pointed out.The next trouble with this is the quest giver, upon completion of the quest, offers 1000 Ancient Mana. Following the guide from the beginning, I only have a 700 capacity, because the increase items are further into the guide. Even if I have 0 AM, I would be wasting 300. While there are more ways to get AM later, it may be worth it to push this further into the guide so as to waste as little of this reward as possible.
Just doing a play-though on an alt, found a couple points that should be switched.
139 has you grab a treasure chest, and 140 has you fighting Stormwing Matriarch. The chest is actually AFTER the Matriarch unless you really want to jump off the waterfall, risking death.
Does wow-pro work with this older patch? If so, can someone direct me to a downloadable version?
Thanks in advance
when using the level guides for the broken isles zones, is it possible to auto-exclude the treasure and rare mob killing quest-steps? right-clicking them everytime seems a bit of a hassel. But apart from that really great addon!
1) Set guide to rank one. Rank one includes NO treasure or silver elite mobs. It also skips all quests that are not essential to the zone achievement.
2) Manually edit the file (in the text editor of your choice) to comment out or delete the lines that start with "$" and "K Kill" if you want to run the guide on rank 2 or 3 but without the treasure/rares. Be aware there are a few lines that start with "K Kill" that are not for the rare / silver elites. They won't say Silver in the description note. If you choose this option you will want to save a backup or redo it each time there is an update as the update will default to overwriting your changes.
Awesome, thank you for the quick reply! :)
i have notice that wherew i go to draenor with my lvl 104 mage it gets choppy but my low lvl charactor have no problem. is there a fix for this or is anyone else having the same problem. im on the horde side
The idea was to assist / help you when writing guides based on wowhead, not being ingame, and just quickly getting the data from wowhead.
Here is a little gif showing it in action
And this is what it does in text
Would this be something you would be interrested in adding to a github and perhaps collaborating about? Can you see a use for this? Any way, feel free to comment :)
Oh and here is the script:
Disclaimer: it's a proof of concept, the code is crappy, and haven't been iterated over many times.
Both I and the Grail author have tools we use to scan Wowhead. The tools were OK for Draenor, but we found that the accuracy and completeness of the WoWHead information was not so hot for writing guides during the Beta period.
On the other hand, something like this would be easier for all the guide writers to use, compared with a tool only I can use.
Lets chat via email!
I tried finding an api for wowhead. they do have api.wowhead.com, but I could not really find any documentation, and i'm not sure it gives what I wanted.
Another alternative could be a chrome extension that could "record" your session, scrabing the pages as you browse around. kinda like the recorder addon.
Not sure what would be the best tool during beta, especially when the data have not been populated yet on wowhead.
But sure we can chat via email / IM :)
i just recently updated your guide through the curse addon and when i tried to play wow it said under the addon menu that your guide was incompatible. I also tried to update it manually through your website but that doesn't seem to have helped. I also tried deleting the curse version but then the other parts of the add on said dependency missing.
I probably have to wait till the next update rolls out which i realise today. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up.
p.s. LOVE THE ADDON and everything you guys do.
sameproblem with it saying incompatible deleted all files of wowpro and still get the samething is there a way to fix yet ???
Could it be that there are some old libraries left in your system?I suggest deleting the WoWPro folders manually and then reinstalling them.
It was exactly what you said it would be. I am using windows 7 so i am still on the learning curve on how to operate this beast. Like i said I'm not a Techno wiz but i kinda of know my way around computers. Thank God for the internet. I was having problems looking for the actual WoW files, but thanks to the internet it is fixed and I can get back to my adventures.
KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.
I have looked into every file that I can think of and deleted the program manually. I have also deleted the program from the Curse Client. When I check under the Addon List it still detects the WoW-Pro achievements, dailies, professions, and worldevents programs.
I am not that techno savvy so I have no clue where to look for these programs to delete them completely. I try to download them and send the extracted files to the file provided by yall and then redownload the program from the curse client but still it comes up with incompatible.
I am currently trying to do that. Either im not getting it all or something else is going on.
When I post a comment I can see under "My Account" that it gets approved, but I never see the post I make in this chat, or the comment I just made on a guide.
As an example this is the link for a guide comment I have under "My Account" http://wow-pro.com/guide/suramar_guide#comment-55239
But that just gives me the guide page, it seems like my comment is not being rendered or shown on that guide at all.
Hi there, I recently installed the wow-pro addon, loving the work you have done. I contemplated contributing to the addon guides because i'm playing an alliance warrior that just reached 110 and started suramar. but honestly I can't find anything on the homepage, the forum is outdated, the pages are outdated. it is all a big mess, as a result I was put off on attempting to help.
I remember I found an addon recorder at some point and I wanted to record what I where doing so someone could use that data to write guides. but the contribute section has nothing about that addon, and I can't really find any "new" information on this homepage besides the latest status updates and recent comments.
I know it is a HUGE task for this community writing guides and keeping them updated and sharp, but if i'm having trouble figuring out how to contribute, i'm guessing i'm not the only one that might have just said "fuck it" and continued using your great work and not being able to contribute :)
Again thanks for the great work, I just felt I needed to tell this to you :)
thmsn: I (we) appreciate you taking the time to comment.
I (as the addon maintaner) and my fellow guide writers are so focused on what we are doing that we have not paid attention to the website that others see. First impressions are important.
Right now, as of 7.1.0, it looks like the rate of needed bug fixes is going down.
I'll spend a day to clean up the website and then spend some time cleaning up the recorder and figuring out some low-overhead way for people to contribute.
The current recorder is currently trying to do two things: record what you did and also let you edit a guiide. It does not do a good job of either. I think that evilving the recorder to be a pure logger might be better, as it would let people contribute their experience in a way that a more experienced guide writer could generalize for a wider audience.
Again, thanks for taking the time to think about it.
Is it possible to record a profession guide with the wow-pro guide recorder? I have been contemplating for a while now, but I would like to start making guides for professions.
It was not designed to pick up stuff you make.
However, Legion has tons of profession quests that could be made into a guide....
I dont know if it would auto pick up any steps. You could do it with the recorder on, and be typing the steps into the edit window as you go. I think it would probably be easier to do it manually...
Unless you are talking about legion professions. They have A LOT of quests involved it seems. You would still have to manually supply the run steps (either through the recorder or after you take it to a text editor.)
The recorder doesn't automatically pick up much besides quests.
Thank for the reply Emmaleah. I'll take a crack at it on my next day off from work. Hopefully I'll have something by next week.
didnt record them all... or THINK to record them.. but here are some (in WP format, but NOT made as a guide)

My work schedule is so chaotic this week I'm not sure when I'll be able to work on something this large. I can try to provide what I can maybe we could collaborate ? I'll try to get anything you think necessary to help complete any guides you're working on.
LOL My work schedules change daily... I'm a truck driver by trade, I never know when I have time to play.. (that's why My suramar guide is slow, I dont have time to get my rep up fast enough to get ahead of ppl)....
Since I have a lot of alts that still need to get to 110. Only my warrior has reached it. And I'm ony halfway into the guide by now. The rest is lagging behind around 105 at this time. And I won't be having much time to play from next week on, when I'm starting on a new work project.
Same story with me, although in my case my alts are sill somewhere between 90 and 110 since I completely skipped WoD. Only did a little Tanaan grinding in the weeks before Legion to get Draenor flying so I could level all my chars faster on that first half of the missing level range.
My Main is 110 and is at the point where the tree is planted in our hideout. My shaman alt is now 102 and bouncing around in Stormheim, my Paladin is 100 and hasn't started Legion content yet and my priest is 93 and just starting out WoD content. All others are still at 90 since I don't have that much time to play sadly.
Life isn't like a box of chocolates, it's more like a jar of jalapeños: What you do today might burn your a** tomorrow.
You are still ahead of me :) Im at about 3K into revered so far with one char and 2K into honored with the other. I thought I was going to catch up as I was getting close to closing the next rep gate.
Hey everyone, I love the add-on and guides you have made. I do
however, have a question about the current way the guide gives
directions. Some of the other guides I have used were able to show me a a
"quickest route" to my way-point location. Will WoW-Pro ever receive
this feature? Does anyone know of an add-on that can also do what I am
P.S. Here is an example of what I am asking. The
current guide I am using is helping me farm the Raven Lord mount. I am
currently in the new Dalaran that released with Legion. The add-on is
now telling me I should go to the chamber of the guardian so that I can
use the portal to Shattrath City. After using the portal and spawning in
Shattrath City the add-on will then prompt me to travel in the
direction of Sethekk Halls.
I'm not exactly certain what you are asking. But ...what I think is that you are wanting the guide to tell you where the portals are and the steps needed to get to the destination.
Alas, the addon does not have a way to display differant instructions based on where you are. So the guide writers pick a common start point.
I expect the guide was written before legion and so the writer couldn't have referanced the chamber of guardians. If someone wanted to suggest improvements to specific guides, the comments should be posted to that guide
You are correct, that is what I hoping to find out. It's not a huge deal, really. There are just so many ways to get around Azeroth it's hard to remember all of them. Thanks for the reply Emmaleah.
Help been trying to fogire this out for days, according to the guid I am 3/4 in my hunter order hall, yet I have no clue what I am missing. I see nothing showing me where I am and what is the last piece. When I go to tthe guides part I see a green icon next to it but everytime I check it it vanishes. Help,
Are you level 101+ ? There is a questline that starts with [Pledge of Loyalty] that you cant do till then.
You can right click on the guide window and view the current guide and you can see what quests remain to be done.
If you bring the mouse over the earliest one in the guide, it will tell you why you are not eligble to do that quest.
Hmm, there seems to be a slight syntax error on [Pledge of Loyalty] but it should not cause you a problem.
Is there a way to turn them off in the guide?
Don't really want to collect them while levelling.
On the version to be released today. (or currently available on github all but highmountain),-- all treasures have been moved out of rank 1. If you want to delete them entirely you could open the guide file with a text editor of your choice and delete (or comment out with a ";) all lines that started with a "$" (doller sign). Be sure and save in text format with the original file name (or add the new name to guides.xml in the same directory on your computer). Be aware any modified files will be overridden when you download the next update, so have backups to rcompare and restore after updating.
Would it be possible to make the guides ignore quests based on a level? For instance, in Legion, when you are 110, the area objectives are not longer available.
The newest version ignores the bonus objectives at 110. Also, they have all been moved out of rank 1. This version will be released later today.
I don't know if this is the right place or not, but as I was questing (Legion), I found a quest that isn't in the database. At least, that's what it said.

First, I have a 2009 27" iMac. Second, because a friend of mine has had some brain surgery and needs occasional help, I sometimes log on to his account to see if I can help him.
Now my problem is that since downloading the last Guide update, when i log into my account, I get a warning box that says, "WOW-Pro addon will not load due to insufficient memory" but when I log into my friends, I don't get that. Same machine, using the same addons, so I suspect the only difference must be in account settings somewhere. I don't know anyway of running both at the same time to see where my settings need to be changed. Went through what I have and didn't see anything obvious, but then I have no idea what a lot of those are. Any ideas?
Just dropping a quick thank you as I have been leeching these guides for years.
Just curious if there is some grunt work I can take a swing at if need be to give back a little.
So i dont see any legion guides. how do i get them. do i have to manualy enter them, how do i do this?
Most of the legion guides are done, and We are in the process of fine tuning those guides. Suramar is also currently being created (that I know of). If you downloaded WowPro from Curse you will not have all the guides, click the big download button on the front page, and then just copy the files in the Zip into your interface\addons dirctory.
do you all know about when sarmara will be finished? just a time frame would be nice love the addon leveled 3 toons so far with it. and love it
I'm going to restart a Suramar guide with my next 110, but I'm just getting started on my next toon to run though the Isles... there is no real 'flow' with Suramar that I can see....
1...2...3...not it. My plan is getting the class hall guides in an acceptable state which I expect will take me a couple of months at least.
Sorry for the delay. Running the Boston Marathon took up more of my time than expected. Update today 4/23 in the afternoon!
OK. Cutting release 7.2.0!
@Ludovicus Rumour is probably 3/28 or 4/4 for 7.2
@Emmaleah I have done both horde/alliance Stormheim guides at the start and they are OK, sans the nasty note.
@Emmaleah I will update again on Tuesday/Wednesday when 7.2.0 hits.
