Needed Guides

You are currently viewing a Wiki Page. It can be edited by anyone who is currently logged in. Before you change anything, please make sure to read our FAQ, the editing guidelines of this post as well as its comments.


This is a list of guides that are in need by the WoW-Pro community.

Need a guide not on this list? Suggest it!

If you wish to write a new guide or wiki for WoW-Pro, before you start please do two things:

  1. Check this page and make sure nobody else is working on the same thing.
  2. Read Jame's Guide Writing Guide. Further tips can also be found in the Guide Writing Category.

If you absolutely want to write a guide about a topic which is already covered, your guide should at least contain major improvements/differences compared to the already existing guide.


Understanding the List:
The list consists of four parts - The guide name, its status, its progress, and its last update.

The Guide Name simply describes what the guide is about. If you adopt something from this list, you don't need to name it the same thing if you want to name it something else.

The Status section explains what is going on with the guide. There are four tags you might see here:

Needed The guide has neither been written or picked up. Please sign up for these if you feel you can do them justice!
Outdated
One or more guides exist for this subject, but they are out of date. Check if the original author has plans to update these guides, otherwise these are technically also in need. Again, feel free to sign up for these.
WIP
(Work in Progress) Someone has already adopted this guide, but feel free to make suggestions or offer help!
Complete
A guide has been completed for this subject! Great job, members of the community!

The Progress column is used to represent the progress on the guide.

Nobody has adopted the guide. Feel free to pick it up!

Guides currently being written or updated will have one of these icons.
This icon links to the user page of the guide's writer.
Note: WIP Guides should also have a short progress description.

This icon serves as a link to the guide if available.

The Last Update column simply states when the guide was suggested, last updated if it's an Out of Date guide, or helps serve as a guide tracking progress for WIP and completed guides.

If you are currently in the middle of a WIP guide, please keep the progress description and update columns updated at least once a week.

Not that I base my opinions on these scores; but I do in this case.

Wowwiki

I think your point is right...
BUT: I was having a hard time finding all the right spots to read, and when i found it i thought musch information could be told easier.
Thats why i was thinking of putting the whole info thing together at ONE spot.

Maybe it would be better with a guide with direct links leading to all the different info pages?

Trollvink's picture

Now THAT would be a guide!

Now THAT would be a guide! And something I'd deffo read.

This is exactly what I was

This is exactly what I was thinking. I really love WoWWiki and it's lore articles, but sometimes I have trouble knowing where all the interesting articles *are*. Some broad timeline or overview with links to the WoWWiki in-depth articles would be fantastic, I think.

Hurjo's picture

Ill start it then!

Well, good to see people are likely to read it. Im gonna start it soon then Eye

Jiyambi's picture

I do suggest making it a wiki, since this is the type of thing many people would want to contribute their own little part to.

EDIT: I fail, I see now you mentioned that already in your first post!

To Troll's concern about wiki pages: I think that's unfounded in this case. No I wouldn't trust it for serious things like school, but honestly, a wiki is the best solution here. There are several people interested in the project, and a wiki is the best way to collaborate. WoW-Pro administrators and mods still have full control over the page and can rollback content whenever needed, and only registered members (possibly to be changed/already changed to only Trusted members) can edit it.

Basically I think a wiki is the only possible solution in this case.

Okay then. I just always

Okay then. I just always read things like "Wikipedia is unsafe; anyone can edit it!" so... ehm, yeah...

Big difference here is that

Big difference here is that only registered members can edit wiki-pages, and they are being moderated.

As we're slashing through

As we're slashing through the list of Reputation Guides currently, I might aswell contribute a little more by writing a guide for the Horde Expedition and the Alliance Vanguard. These two factions are just the counterpart of the other and will consist much of the same things, so I might aswell do both while I'm at it.

Need to be put up as "writing" on these factions,

I guess you can mark the Argent Crusade guide as done and link the completed result to Unbreakable's guide.

Something to note...

I would like to make a point here to all guide writers...

Firstly, I have seen a massive influx of guides to this site lately and whilst this is very good and it shows the interest and community is growing stronger by the day, I would just like to make everyone aware that if you are writing a guide about a specific tpoic, make sure it is TOP quality. I do not wish to offend or upset anyone here with this post.

The main topic I'm talking about here is the Gold Making guides. We seem to have had alot submitted over the past month or so. Great! Except the quality of the majority of them has been mediocre at best. Don't get me wrong some good guides have also been submitted and to the authors of those I extend my thanks. Looking through the Gold Making guides on the site though, I have found that the vast majority of them are basically an entire guide saying "Start Mining on a new character and sell Copper" or "Loot greens and disenchant", or maybe even "Do Dailies". Now whilst these may be good tips, they are just tips nontheless and to me don't warrent a guide to be written on it.

Another thing I'd like to point out also is that people post guides that they say are complete and whatnot about this, yet all they contain is the above tips, which to me is comepletely pointless. Especially as if they looked on this page they would see what was being written currently and what is needed.

This completely puts me off for example, and I'm sure it does others too. I mean I personally think now why submit a great guide when there are a ton of guides already here so it will get lost within them, even though the vast majority are mediocre.

I personally thank and commend the efforts of any guide writer here, I would just like to make it clear that a guide which is just one tip isn't a guide at all, and I'd like for people to have a look around and see what needs to be done and what is being done, and then question themselves, Can I really do this? before posting a 5,000 word essay on mining Copper.

Appologies for the rant but I really feel disheartened sometimes. Especially as some of these Copper guides have no use other than clogging up space like the other 20 or so Copper guides and yet they are extremely highly rated. This disillusions people and disheartens other guide writes.

I propose a solution to this. A complete revamp of all guides on the site with the sub-par ones being removed. In there place, would go a compilation of all of the tips and strategies from those guides and we would have a handful of great guides for readers to enjoy, not the mountain of mediocre guides that swamp everywhere and so obscurring those guides of actual good quality. I would personally be glad to undertake the Gold Making portion of this in particular, and any other section also.

This has already been done,

This has already been done, to some extent, in the other categories - I know at least in the druid category Jame set some old guides back to draft so the good ones stand out. I agree that the gold guide needs the most attention right now, and what you say is absolutely true (been thinking about it myself lately).

I think someone (you? Trollvink? someone else?) had mentioned doing a guide revamp already, sorry I don't remember who it was. I think this is an excellent idea! Perhaps we need something like:

  • General Gold Making Tips - A compilation of all the major tips, with links to the more specific guides.
  • Making Gold While Leveling - One top notch quality guide to making gold while leveling. Let's face it folks, most gold making will be done at max level. We don't need a ton of specific guides on how to make gold while leveling - one guide is probably sufficient.
  • Making Gold through X profession - We could have one of these for each profession, as needed - focused on crafting professions.
  • Making Gold through Dailies - Or some version of this
  • Making Gold Through Gathering - The best way to make gold through gathering, either skinning, mining, or herbalism, or combined circuits.
  • Making Gold through Farming - eternals and the like. One or more guides as needed for specific things.
  • Making Gold through the AH - Hurry up with that guide Shikamaru! Eye

Just my vision of an ideal set of gold guides.

Dont forget: Making Gold

Dont forget:

  • Making Gold through combinations of the above - like my guide, which requires you to have a certain level, certain professions, and pick-up certain quests. While following a certain route! Sticking out tongue

Jiyambi's picture

Of course The above would

Of course Eye The above would be the major guides, with perhaps a few more specialized guides like the one you describe. The major point is that we have a lot of guides that say the same thing and are low quality. Anything of high quality (which I know yours would be!) should be saved.

Jiyambi, that has been

Jiyambi, that has been perfectly said! I think we need to put this to Jame A.S.A.P. and get it into effect. Give me a shout anytime and I would be more than happy to help out.

Right, someone please put me as "writing" under "progress" for Argent Crusade.

Rep Guides

I can tell you that the Kirin Tor and Knights of the Ebon Blade guides are delayed 'til April 12 or earlier due to busy stuff going on with me. Sticking out tongue

edit: Nice new format!

Phew! I finished the Kirin Tor guide. I probably took the longest on making the title picture pretty, but I'm pretty happy about the result. Yay for GIMP!

I've seen that there are

I've seen that there are alot of grinding guides here on wow-pro, but all of them are incomplete and lack details. So I thought that I might aswell take the best parts from all guides, and make a complete 1-70 grinding guide. Grinding 70-80 is just madness.

I know grinding is ALOT slower than questing, but some people prefer grinding instead of questing, and why not just make that grinding easier by giving some tips and good farming locations?

Some comments and thoughts about this would be nice.

1. You install WoW. 2. You

1. You install WoW.
2. You play it.
3. After a while, you struggle with leveling.
4. You google 'leveling guide'.
5. You get Jame's leveling guides.
6. You see a grinding guide.
7. You think "Maybe I should do that!"

Err, bad example, I know. But why would we want grinding guide's, to level? I assume over 90% of the people came here because of Jame his guides, including myself.

I don't mind it being created, but this is one of the thing's I don't really find useful

Jiyambi's picture

I dunno, some people may use

I dunno, some people may use Jame's guides for one character, then roll a mage or prot pally and want to grind. I saw someone complaining of the outdated-ness of the grinding guides here just the other day. I agree it won't be the most popular guide on here, but I don't think it's completely useless.

Maw's picture

Of course grinding is never

Of course grinding is never going to compete with questing. Or much less likely will a grinding guide compete with Jame's Leveling Guides, but I think that for those that want to grind, the alternative of guides should be alot better than it is today. If people are negative about an improved grinding guide, then I'll not write it. I'm just saying the possibility.

lunargecko's picture

Grinding competing with questing?

It could if you reaped the benefits of good technique, recruit-a-friend and rested bonus.

The occassional AoE grind would be fun for my Pally, a nice break from quests I've done five billion times and a chance to see how many mobs I could kill at once!

Sorry to burst the bubbles... but when a recruited friend has no BoA shoulders, and you do, the difference grows to big after a while, and RaF doesn't work anymore... Rested XP doesn't work with Raf :\

But hey, they all work individually Laughing out loud

Trollvink's picture

Well, I don't mind you

Well, I don't mind you writing it, but what I was trying to point out is that newbie's shouldn't take the wrong choice of leveling.

I think that if you add something like "For the best leveling way, visit [link]james guide's[/link]". Then it's okay, I guess. I would love to see some grinding spots for a protection paladin Eye Gonna roll one with RaF this summer Sticking out tongue

Quote:

"I would love to see some grinding spots for a protection paladin"

And that's that. It's nice to have the option to just blast out on mobs every now and then on your mage or paladin alt Sticking out tongue

I'll go ahead and make the guide when I'm in the mood.

Trollvink's picture

Don't forget different sorts

Don't forget different sorts of mobs - A protection paladin can't pull ranged mobs, for example Eye Would be a nice-to-have in the guide.
