We no longer use this page for works in progress, please stop posting here.

Use our new WORK IN PROGRESS PAGE isntead.

Thank you!


This wiki page will help us track who has volunteered to help translate sections of Jame’s Leveling Guides into TourGuide Format, so that we can finally publish an addon that will enable people following Jame’s Guide to do so without alt-tabbing.

If you wish to translate a section of the guide, please read through this list and find a section that you would like to contribute, being careful to select something that you will be able to test yourself and has not already been volunteered by someone else.

How to test those sections?

Installing Externals
Three external files are needed to run this addon.

If you are not familiar with the installation of addons, it can be done as follows:

  1. Download and unzip the addon files.
  2. Navigate to the World of Warcraft directory (by default, it is in C:/Program Files/World of Warcraft)
  3. Open the “Interface” folder, then the “Addons” folder inside it.
  4. Copy and paste the “TourGuide” and “TomTom” folders into the World of Warcraft/Interface/Addons directory.

You can check ingame if you’ve installed it correctly; when you go to the character selection screen, down the bottom there is a button labelled Addons. Click that, then scroll down and look for TomTom and TourGuide (it’s in alphabetical order). Make sure they’re enabled.

Author’s Note: Vista users may not have a “Interface” folder, instead their Addons folder is inside the “World of Warcraft” folder. Full path should be c:\UsersPublicGamesWorld of WarcraftInterfaceAddOns


Installing the WoW-Pro Guides: AllianceUpdated to v0.3 – 03/02/2009

  1. Download the WoW-Pro_TourGuide_Alliance file and unzip it.
  2. Copy and paste the “WoW-Pro_TourGuide_Alliance” folder into your “World of Warcraft/Interface/Addons/” folder.
  3. Launch wow, and at the character selection screen click on the “Addons” button on the lower-left corner. Make sure that the following 3 addons are activated: TomTom, TourGuide, WoW-Pro Tourguide Alliance and Lightheaded (Lightheaded A,B,C,D,etc as well).tginfo1.jpg
  4. Once in game, click on the TourGuide bar (should be just under your minimap). This will open the “Guides” page. Scroll down to the bottom of the list and you’ll see the WoW-Pro Guides:tourguideinfo2.jpgSelect the guide you want and there you go!

Installing the WoW-Pro Guides: Horde

Updated to v0.2 – 22/01/2009

  1. Download the WoW-Pro_TourGuide_Horde and unzip it
  2. Copy and paste the “WoW-Pro_TourGuide_Horde” folder into the “World of Warcraft/Interface/Addons/” folder.
  3. Launch wow, and at the character selection screen click on the “Addons” button on the lower-left corner. Make sure that the following 3 addons are activated: TomTom, TourGuide, WoW-Pro Tourguide Horde and Lightheaded (Lightheaded A,B,C,D,etc as well).tginfo1.jpg

That’s it, you should now be good to go. For more information on how to use the addon, check this page.


How To Volunteer to write or improve a section


-Guide Section Name-

 


Add your name and the date you volunteered to the table below, and then, when you are done with your contribution, upload it somewhere and paste the link here. You can put it anywhere you like, but I recommend using the form at the bottom of the edit page of this wiki to add the file as an attachment. You can then link to the file in a similar way to linking images in wow-pro guides, but using URL BBCode tags instead of IMG ones.

    I just finished Dun Morogh.I just finished Dun Morogh. Here are my notes on it…

    1- For the objectives of “A Refugee’s Quandary,” I was sorely missing a simple “Loot” tag. I decided to use the “Buy” tag, but you might care to change it to a Note. It would work fine, auto-complete and all, if you just change the B to N. Whatever you like.

    2- In one of the notes, in the interest of keeping the game tooltip at a reasonable length I put kind of a “preview” note and put the rest of the note in the tooltip. i.e.:
    N Lorem ipsum dolor… |N|Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit.
    I like how this turned out, and thought I’d put this here for someone else to use in case of any particularly long note sections.

    3- I included the class quests at level 10, because Boston mentions to stop and do them, but some aren’t all that necessary. You [i]might[/i] care to add the following two lines:
    N Your class quest is really quite important, and you should stop and do it now. |C|Hunter, Warlock|
    N Your class quest will give you an exp boost to reduce an upcoming grind session and some green equipment, but it’s not important. |C|Mage, Rogue, Warrior|

    4- Speaking of class quests, Boston’s guide doesn’t include Pallies’ level 12 quest, so I didn’t either. I think for consistency’s sake it should probably be there, but it’s a rather long line and it’s 3 AM. 🙂

    5- Since we’re moving away from Boston’s mid-level guide (why on earth???) there needs to be some work done integrating Dwarves and Gnomes into Maw’s guide. On my end, I didn’t ask the player to set his or her hearth in Thelsamar, but rather Ironforge. Honestly, the 12-20 guides seem to be a bit of a horrible mess and would have to use racial tags heavily to properly integrate with each other. ^^; I don’t know how the person inputting Maw’s guide is going to handle “Follow the level 10-12 section of my Human Leveling guide” short of copy/pasting the whole thing with |R|Dwarf, Gnome, Draenei, Night Elf| in each step, which is workable but clunky.

    Anyway, I play-tested the whole thing as I wrote it and it seemed to have no issues.

    PS- When do I get to not have my comments moderated anymore? O:)

      And with that you got a bunch of karma points, so your comments won’t need moderation anymore 😉

      We’re not moving away from Boston’s Guide. It’s still an option between his and Maw’s Guide, so feel free to make a 12-20 with Boston’s guide!

        I see. Thanks for the KarmaI see. Thanks for the Karma boost, and for the response. I didn’t know Boston’s guide wasn’t being abandoned, it’s just that here we have Sven/Maw/Joan listed only, and same for https://wow-pro.com/1-80_leveling_guides . 🙂 Seemed like it was being ditched. Although it means we have three Westfall guides! Haha. 🙁

        Maybe I should try my hand at doing one for Night Elves that has them stay in Darkshore, who knows.

          By the way I’m trying the tourguide file you made right now and noticed a small mistake.

          At the step where the guide sends us to the grizzled den to kill Wendigos, there’s no TomTom arrow giving directions. I suppose you forgot it.

            I have all of the 30-60 doneI have all of the 30-60 done already, but they could be cleaned up, commented, bug tested, etc. The link is http://www.mediafire.com/?znorknynq5i I’m not sure how the community would like to proceed but I think a LOT of work has already been done (it worked really well for me when I leveled a new toon threw them).

            If anyone has the time to test both GraceAlone and [url=https://www.wow-pro.com/files/wowprotourguide_a1-69_Nuzz.zip]Nuzz’s versions[/url] and tell me which one is more polished, it’d be a huge help.

As such I knew the guides almost by heart and when their was an error or something wasn’t clear I pretty much knew what to do. IMHO anyway 🙂

            Jan 13, 2009 @ 19:15

            Hm, I thought I answeredHm, I thought I answered this comment already. -.-;

            I didn’t put in a coordinate for this part because it’s so close to The Grizzled Den, where we were already killing bears and so forth, that I assumed the player would have seen the Wendigos there. Given that it’s only a couple of characters, I don’t really want to mess with life and re-upload the thing with just that one change, esp. since it’s already been put into the main file. I fully condone all changes made to it to bring it more in line, though. 🙂

    AzuremystJust about done with Azuremyst, some things I would like to note:

    1 – In areas like multiple loot-items for quests and long notes, I followed Aya’s lead and used Buy tags and preview notes to try and make the two guides slightly more consistent.

    2 – The overview page is slightly confusing as to the use of the |O| Optional tag, so the level 2 class mini-quests, the Draenei Youngling quest, and the Blood Elf Bandit quest have been omitted for now. Attempting to put them in with guessing as to their use resulted in a multitude of errors.

    3 – I have slightly overlapped with Sven’s Bloodmyst Guide as far as his first quest, because I’ve included the Paladin level 12 class quest in as well, so while they go up to do their Redemption quest, the other classes are just arriving there to finish up the guide.

    I playtested this about halfway through with a Paladin, so got the chance to catch up on a few bugs (wrong QID, wrong number of items in a note, etc) but would like to run this past some others for feedback. I can see there being perhaps a couple of problems where I’ve integrated the Warrior and Shaman level 10 quests with the actual leveling itself.

      Hey Kinrah, I just tried itHey Kinrah, I just tried it and it seems nice so far, good job!

      A few extras could be added though, like for example at the start when we kill the moths and the volatiel mutations, the quest doesn’t automatically complete once we’ve finished both quests.

      Also a little later for Rescue the survivors, when we’re supposed to use the Gift of the Naaru on a Draenei Survivor, there’s no tomtom arrow appearing to guide you towards the Draenei Survivors.

      It’s not a big deal of course, but it’s just nice little additions we’ll have to add in the future to make those addon version as polished as possible.

      Keep up the good work guys.

      • img
        Jan 13, 2009 @ 1:44

        The reason Rescue theThe reason Rescue the Survivors won’t have a coordinate arrow is because the survivors don’t have a fixed spawn point as far as I know, they spawn all over the vale.

        I think I mentioned this elsewhere, but if you’re doing 2 killquests at once, you have the complete objectives one after the other and TG will track both.

    I’ve added Grizzly HillI’ve added Grizzly Hill yesterday if ppl want to try it.

    Quick note, the file names for Northrend should begin with the level otherwise they will not be displayed in the correct order within TourGuide.

    [edit]I’m wrong, the order in TourGuide is the order the file are loaded. That said, having the level in the name might not be a bad thing anyways. What do you guys think?

    [edit2]I just downloaded the Guide file for Alliance and realized that that the guides are missing TOC and guide.xml to make them usable by themselves. Would the ppl that made those guides be offended if I were to make them addon that ppl can just drop in their AddOn folder and use? And if I do, would you guys prefer one big addon for all Alliance guides or one addon by guide (or both I guess 🙂 ?

        It’s done, both the AllianceIt’s done, both the Alliance and Horde TourGuide files are now packaged as one big addon.

        I’ve also set up the Alliance .toc for each of the subfolders so it would be possible to use them separatly (and not having to load everything in memory in one go).

        The names I have set up for the addons begins with TourGuide_WoWPro so that it is obvious that we are dealing with TourGuide files.

        Next step is to write a little wiki article on how to set the .toc and Guides.xml stuff.

        Let me know what you think.

            If the name of the title ofIf the name of the title of the guide is not [xxx] Zone Name (xxx-xxx), you will have TourGuide throw errors. Something like “Jame’s Nagrand” is not a know zone. At least, it does for me.

            Yes, but apparently thoseYes, but apparently those error messages don’t appear often and they don’t matter, the guide still works.

            If anyone knows of a way to disable the error messages, it would be great. Because having to follow that naming standard makes it confusing to know which guide you are following exactly, and makes it hard to differentiate the wow-pro guides from the default guides.

            That’s already something, IThat’s already something, I can format most guides like that I guess.

            The only problem is for my 30-40, 40-50 and 50-60 chapters. We go through many different zones during those chapters, and with this formatting I’ll have to make a big list of zones for each chapters, which is just kinda annoying to look at in the list.

      Problem with Grizzly Hills fileHey Laotseu, there’s a little problem with your grizzly hills file. It’s fine until this point:

      T Hour of the Worg |QID|12164| |N|Sasha right there or in White Pine Trading Post (57.52, 41.35)|

      And then the rest doesn’t appear because there’s an end tag after it. I removed the end tag and put it at the end of the file.

      But when I do that, the file won’t load anymore in-game.

      Could you try to fix it please? Then I’ll add it to the .zip and upload it 🙂

      • img
        Jan 16, 2009 @ 0:29

        I’ll look into it tonight.I’ll look into it tonight.

        [edit]T Hour of the Worg |QID|12164| is the last quest of the online guide. That and “Ursoc, the Bear God” are group quests. I left the A line exactly where you said to get the quests in your guide but I put the completion at the end since they are optional. My thinking was that anytime you find a group, you do them. If you finish the zone without finding a group, you go to the next zone and can always select back the unfinished guide for the group quests. It’s not perfect but that’s the best I could come up with.

        The comments after the end are logs from TrouGuide_Recorder that I used to make the guide. I left them there as reference in case I needed to fix something but they could be removed.

        P.S. You’ll see in the .rar file that I’ve also put my BT, HF and DB guides. I didn’t link them in the .toc since someone else volunteered for those guides even though no files have been linked yet.

            Anywho, here’s where you can find all my files. It’s on a SVN server so I update them every time I find something wrong or that need improvement.

            [url]http://code.google.com/p/armorcraft/source/browse/#svn/trunk/TourGuide_Jame_Alliance_Northrend[/url]

            The first two files are more or less reordering of Tekkup files to follow your guide but nothing much in term of using your notes.

    I’ve played through almostI’ve played through almost all of Snowflake’s Draenei Guide and have found a few things that could be cleaned up/corrected. I’m not completely finished with it yet, but I’ll post the completed file when I finish it. The big thing that I found was that there was a lack of “Complete” and “Loot” objectives which help make the guide much easier to follow and prevents manually having to check off the entry. More to come 😀

    Edit:
    Working on the NE 1-12 guide at the moment; about half done. One thing that would be useful for the guide creation tool is the ability to enable class only quests. It’s not a huge deal to edit the exported file, but it is an extra step. The tool is great though and makes correcting items/creating guides nice and easy. Thanks!

      Alright, I’ve tested theAlright, I’ve tested the first few levels and you really did a great job, you even implemented the class quests.

      However, here are my suggestions to make it perfect:

      1. Add “Sell junk and repair” notes, with coordinates to the repair NPC. Like for example, right the beginning before we do The Balance of Nature (Part 2), there’s a note to sell junk and repair in taralom’s guide, but not in your file.

      Add this simple line:

      [code]
      N Sell junk and repair |N|Sell junk and repair at Keina (59.30, 41.10) |
      [/code]
      2. When using the ‘C’ tag to send people to do quests, there are no TomTom arrows. So you have to add a note with the coords. You don’t always have to add details in the note about how to do the quest when it’s something straightforward like “kill 7 boars”, but at least add the coords for the TomTom arrow to show up.

      Like for when we do The Balance of Nature (Part 2), change the line to this:

      [code]
      C The Balance of Nature (Part 2) |N|(59.00, 36.00) | |QID|457|
      [/code]

      And the TomTom arrow will show up.

      Basically we want the TomTom arrow to show up for every step requiring you to move, even if it’s a short distance. That way following the guides will be done at amazing speed.

        Simple enough should haveSimple enough should have that done by early next week (gotta spend some time with the fam!) I use lightheaded so I don’t naturally think about adding the coordinates for everything. We’ll get it taken care of though and thanks for the compliments 😀

        Well, guess I had the time anyway :p The guide has been updated with coordinates for every single objective and sell/repair added as well. Should be 100% now 😀

    I just finished writingI just finished writing Maw’s Human 1-12 Leveling Guide. I encourage everyone to try it.

    With this guide I want to set the standard for the quality I want for the addon version of our leveling guides.

    Here’s what you’ll get:

    [list]
    [*]TomTom arrow for EVERY step requiring you to move, even short distances.
    [*]Auto-completion for 99% of the steps. When it’s not an auto-complete step, I actually mention it and tell you to close the step once you finish reading.
    [*]class quests included
    [*]optional quests included
    [*]Even giving directions to the nearest repair NPC when the guide mentions to “Sell junk and repair”
    [*]Item box appearing whenever an item needs to be used from your bags
    [*]Information compressed down to the minimum – just enough to go through every step smoothly
    [/list]

    Should be a lot of fun and very relaxing to follow the guide in this addon format if everyone helps to reach this level of quality for each guide section. Not to mention, they will be unbeatable in terms of leveling speed 😉

    I’ll upload the file a little later tonight. Stay tuned.

    Lacking guides?! I actually don’t know why, but somehow my Tourguide window looks way different from the screenshot you posted 😕
    1.) Snowflake’s Ghostlands 13-21 is not there. Instead I’ve got a guide called “Ghostlands (WoW-Pro | Snowflake’s Draenei 1-12)”
    2.) There is no [WoW-Pro] Jame’s Leveling Guide (21-31) but instead I only got a guide called: Ashenvale (30-31 | [WoW-Pro] Jame)
    Other than that there’s no WoW-Pro guide in that particular level range.
    3.) I’m lacking the Terokkar 64-66 guide. No idea why.
    4.) There’s no leveling guide from 68-70. You therefore may add a Netherstorm/Shadowmoon guide to your “To-do-list”. Maybe someone volunteers 🙂
    I installed Tourguide, TomTom, Lightheaded just like you explained and extracted the WoW-Pro_TourGuide_Horde package to my addon folder. Still I can’t find the guides visible on your screenshot =/ Did I miss something? Apart from that, when do you think we can expect the whole addon to be released? I do know that there’s still a whole lot of work to be done, I’m just wondering whether it will be anytime soon ^^

    Hey I just added my nameHey I just added my name into the list – I’d like to do the 41-51 part of Jame’s Guide (Horde). I finished doing the first part, untill you go to Booty Bay from the Badlands. Currently I have 3 zones in one .lua file: Stranglethorn Vale, Swamp of Sorrows and the Badlands. Should I split them up and make them into three .lua files? Putting Swamp of Sorrows in another .lua file might be a good idea, but the Stranglethorn Vale part is kinda short because you only accept a few quests there, kill Sin’Dall and move on into Swamp of Sorrows.

    I tried the addon versions of Hellfire Peninsula (only the last bit) and Zangarmarsh, and I really liked them. I worked through the guide much faster than if I had to alt-tab back to look at the guide. And also: I didn’t forget to set my Hearthstone! (Wich I always forget :P) As the 31-60 guides haven’t been put into the addon yet I’d like to contribute and make the 41-51 guide for the addon if that’s ok. 😛

      Certainly.

      My advice would be to make the first zone Swamp of Sorrows, and use a |Z|Stranglethorn Vale| tag for any objectives that involve coordinates in STV. Then create a seperate file for Badlands given how much you do there.

      Thanks for contributing, I didn’t know how I was going to find the time to do these sections myself. 😉

    Minor Error in Snowflake’s 13 – 21 Ghostlandswho ever corrects–

    The “Trouble at the underlight mines” shows as at the mines after grinding rotting hearts after leaving Tranquillien…. (this is at 40% of the guide)

    There are several issues here…

    1)You never take the quest before leaving town for the hearts, now you can turn it in later but for the sake of tracking what you question for that should be added to the quest log before leaving.

    2)The quest “Trouble at the underlight mines” is NOT gotten at the mines as Snowflake says, it is gotten in Tranquillien (The mining undead guy to the right in the main building) and should be gotten before leaving Tranquillien for heart grinding as well.

        In the written one maybe..In the written one perhaps, but in the Addon I can assure you (tested twice) that it doesn’t tell me to get all the quests (in fect, there are 4 untaken at this point). Further, the location for “Trouble at the Underlight Mines” is shown with the arrow to get the quest at the mines, which it isn’t. Also the addon (as far as I have seen) NEVER says just to get all quests you see because that would fail the tracking code, it needs each npc noted.

It is listed as 000_70_72_Borean_Tundra.lua when the correct name is 000_70_72_Jame_Borean_Tundra.lua. Changing this makes the guide load correctly.

    Also the link to the guide on this site is also incorrect, the underscore between Borean and Tundra is missing so the link appears broken, http://www.theamazonbasin.com/~nlx3647/000_70_72_Jame_BoreanTundra.lua needs to be http://www.theamazonbasin.com/~nlx3647/000_70_72_Jame_Borean_Tundra.lua.

    I’ve seen these two mistakesI’ve seen these two mistakes done in several guides. Everyone please read.

    [size=14][b]1. Quests with the same name[/b][/size]

    When you have a quest with several follow ups with the same name, you MUST add (Part 1) (Part 2) (Part 3) etc tags in the step description, or it won’t work.

    For example, in the 1-12 Night Elf guide:

    [Code]
    A The Balance of Nature |QID|456|
    C The Balance of Nature |QID|456|
    T The Balance of Nature |QID|456|
    A The Balance of Nature |QID|457|
    [/Code]

    Needs to be:

    [Code]
    A The Balance of Nature (Part 1) |QID|456|
    C The Balance of Nature (Part 1) |QID|456|
    T The Balance of Nature (Part 1) |QID|456|
    A The Balance of Nature (Part 2) |QID|457|
    [/Code]

    [size=14][b]2. No need to put coords for quest accept and quest turn in steps, if you input the QID[/b][/size]

    In 99% of the cases, you don’t need to add a note with coords for these two types of steps: Quest Accept and Quest Turn in. (A and T)

    Why? Because Lightheaded already has a database of all the quest NPCs’ locations linked to each Quest ID (QID). So it automatically creates a TomTom arrow pointing you to the quest NPC you need to talk to to accept or turn in a quest. Better than that, it also puts the name of the quest NPC you need to interract with under the TomTom arrow.

    So there’s no need to add a note with coords int he step, as long as:

    [list]
    [*]It’s Quest Accept or Quest Turn-in step
    [*]You added the QID in the step (which is done automatically if you use Nuzz’s TourGuide Editor)
    [/list]

    [b]Example[/b]:

    [Code]
    A The Balance of Nature (Part 1) |N| (58.70, 44.30)| |QID|456|
    C The Balance of Nature (Part 1) |N| (62.00, 38.00)| |QID|456|
    T The Balance of Nature (Part 1) |N| (58.70, 44.30)| |QID|456|
    A The Balance of Nature (Part 2) |N| (58.70, 44.30)| |QID|457|
    [/Code]

    The coords here are only necessary for the C step. It’s not needed for the other 3 steps. It should be like this instead:

    [Code]
    A The Balance of Nature (Part 1) |QID|456|
    C The Balance of Nature (Part 1) |N| (62.00, 38.00)| |QID|456|
    T The Balance of Nature (Part 1) |QID|456|
    A The Balance of Nature (Part 2) |QID|457|
    [/Code]

    This is getting ratherThis is getting rather messy. For example for the Alliance Howling Fjord guide, someone volunteered and released a file, which made it look like it was the full chapter.

    I just checked it out and actually it’s just the beginning of the Howling Fjord chapter.

    It would help to mention that in the description here on the wiki page. If you only did something partially, mention it.

    Someone else did the last 10% of the Howling Fjord guide as well.

    So now we have the first 20% of Howlingfjord and the last 10%. What are we supposed to do with this, seriously? 😛

    My point: Try to do a full chapter before relasing a file, or at least more than 50%. Or things get rather complicated for me to sort out.

    21 to 22 Stonetalon.. Just finished 13 – 21 Ghostlands, pretty decent overall. Stepped into 21 – 22 Stonetalon and 1st item is got to “Camp Taurajo” and next is get “The Ashenvale Hunt” which isn’t always there, which then goes to Org. to turn in “Samophlange manual” (I know it is optional) but it appears to have appeared in my inventory and quest log somehow.

    Now, ok, it’s only 3%. BUT, I suggest add a READ ME as first item explaining that this continues from (?) and if you just joined us skip to… (Make a Hearth to Org, get FP, walk to XR for FP, walk to Ratchet FP and start there)

    Whats the story with Alliance Dragonblight?Just wondering is there any progress on the Alliance Dragonblight guide. It has been almost a month it seems since Raistlan took it on and still no guide. I am just about to start in there now and I would be quite happy to do the dragonblight guide for alliance if for some reason he is unable to complete it at this point.

    • img
      Fév 7, 2009 @ 18:53

      Before you start your own,Before you start your own, please look at what I’ve done for Dragonblight and even Howling Fjord. I don’t think they are as good as what I did for Grizzly Hills but I’ve already used them with two characters and I think they are pretty usable.

      I didn’t upload them because Raislain had already put is name as maintainer and I though he was about to upload something soon(tm).

      Anyways, if anyone is interested, here are the links:

      [url]http://code.google.com/p/armorcraft/source/browse/trunk/TourGuide_Jame_Alliance_Northrend/72_74_Howling_Fjord.lua[/url]
      [url]http://code.google.com/p/armorcraft/source/browse/trunk/TourGuide_Jame_Alliance_Northrend/74_75_Dragonblight.lua[/url]

      Whenever I find error on them, I commit new versions in SVN. If you do try them and find problem, let me know.

      The name of the guide do not follow Jame’s standard i.e. (WoW-Pro, –) because I also load WoW-Pro guides and I don’t want to confuse them when I’m fooling around.

        Not to be disrespectful, butNot to be disrespectful, but after using about half of your Grizzly Hills guide so far, I wish you would spell check the descriptions and use proper grammar. :/

        It’s also missing coordinates for about half of the goals, and doesn’t note objectives that are to be done simultaneously. I just finished Howling Fjord and Dragonblight as well, and posted the Howling Fjord one in the main info page comments yesterday, but haven’t posted Dragonblight’s yet (I want to do a second run through on it first, with my other character).

        On that note (and this is a general question to anyone), what is the fascination with using coordinates in sentences? I know Jame did it in the online guide, but it made a lot more sense there. For these addons, the user is expected to have LightHeaded and TomTom (or some form of arrow pointer) installed, right? What I’ve been doing is simply listing the coordinates at the end of the note, after the sentence(s), and using the word “here” when referring to the spot. For example:

        “|N|Defeat “Crowleg” Dan on the ship here. (35.95,83.60)|”

        The player will get an arrow pointing to “Crowleg” Dan’s location almost exactly (as close as double decimal coordinates can get), and there is an explanation of what you’re doing for the quest. Every complete quest has an explanation to go along with it, even those that don’t seem like they would require one, such as “Kill 10 Kobold Vermin here” (if I were writing a human lv1-12 guide). That way, if the user happens to forget what he or she is doing, or they log out mid-quest and back in, they can easily be reminded.

        And when there are quest objectives to be completed simultaneously, I will note every following quest objective in each note. For example (in primitive form):

        Objective 1: “collect Frostberries off the ground, kill Dr. Louis, kill scourge mobs, kill ancients.”
        Objective 2: “Kill Dr. Louis, kill scourge mobs, kill ancients.”
        Objective 3: “Kill scourge mobs, kill ancients.”
        Objective 4. “Kill ancients.”

        This way, the user can remind themselves of what they are doing if they either forget, or log out and back in. When I started writing the ones I did, I basically thought this was going to be the general convention for writing them – keep them the same quality as Jame’s online guides – but they haven’t been. The outland ones were good, but they didn’t follow this convention really, for the most part. :/

        Maybe I’m just being too picky… But when I have to open my quest log and read the quest to figure out what I’m doing, I sometimes wonder why I have the addon loaded.

        • img
          Fév 8, 2009 @ 19:24

          Multiple quest in same areaThe way I did these guides was to pick an objective that was in the middle of a mess of mobs to kill. Like take out the chieftain so and so in the middle of a camp. knowing full well that part of the kill so many quest was going to be worked on just by going into the camp. After the kill the chief objective I would place the other one, which sometimes auto completes because you had to fight your way into the camp.

          In short… same area objectives
          Kill single mob
          Gather objectives
          then kill so many if it hasn’t been filled yet (tourguide won’t even show this if it has been done)

          • img
            Fév 9, 2009 @ 14:50

            I still think it’s worthI still think it’s worth mentioning all the objectives at the beginning, especially for the later Outland guides and the later Northrend ones. In those two cases, people may be a couple levels higher than the guide says and will have flyers. This makes it easy to accidentally skip efficient routes because they can just fly right to them and had no idea without looking ahead.

            Also, stealth classes, thinking they can just go in and kill the single mob and stealth out, might get frustrated as well.

          • img
            Fév 9, 2009 @ 21:19

            I still think it’s worthNoted and paradigm shifted. TY having only done the starter areas with the talents of none, I easily missed the challenges of writing guides for toons that can do just what you stated. I think the “from now on.. kill” works as a single note before setting out to do a series of quests. Main reason so too minimize the notes on the guide that you have to manually click off, more automatic the faster we power level 😉

    Various guidesI just started leveling my Ally DK. I’ve used your guides several times to level several different alts. I had previously tried the Tour Guide addon guides with my undead warlock in Zangarmarsh. It was not close to your guide so I disabled it and went on as I had just alt-tabbing over.

    I figured I’d give it another chance with my DK when I started Hellfire. So I redownloaded Tour Guide, the two databases and dove right in. Well, I must say I was kind of disappointed. I know the people who converted your guides for Tour Guide did it out of the kindness of their hearts, and I want to say I appreciate it. However, at least Ally side, the Tour Guide guide for Hellfire is not even close. It changes on the second step, and after looking a bit it never seemed to catch up. For example, in step 2 you tell us go kill the orcs, step 2 in the addon tells us to go to Sergeant Altumus. No big deal. Your next step is to turn in those two quests. The addon sends us to turn the quests to the Sergeant, then after getting The Path of Anguish it sends us to kill the orcs from your second step, and gather the metal and wood. Then we go do The Path of Anguish, turn it in, and then go to Expedition Point and start working on those quests.

    As you can see, it’s not even close to your quest circuit.

    Is there some formatting I am missing when I installed? Or is the steps just put in differently?

    Missing Info for 30-40 Alliance guideI’m using the Tourguide version of your 30-40 Alliance leveling guide. It has been awesome and really follows the Internet version very closely. However, while I was on Ranazjar Isle, I did not get a reminder or anything to prompt me to kill Nagas until I got Karnitol’s Satchel.

    Fortunately, I’ve followed these guides before and knew to look for it on the mobs in this area. But it was not in the guide, though later at Nigel’s Point you are prompted to turn it in.

    I’ll report anything else I find, but this was about it. Great job to whoever has converted the guide to this format.

        Its beautiful! However IIts beautiful! However I would just combine the works in progress with those already done, if that’s possible. That’s the problem I had before, looking back and forth between them, and then people uploaded new versions but that was down in the comments zone so I didn’t see it right away.

        You could make the name of each guide a link to the most recently uploaded file by the maintainer of that guide (or any other volunteer) and also add the date it was most recently uploaded. So you would just need one more column, a date, on the main tables. The % complete could be added into the status column for unfinished guides.

        Anyway, I definitely like what you have so far. I think all the “how to test the guide” stuff should just be moved to “how to contribute” or the other pages, so this one can be streamlined and more useful to keep track of who is doing what.

Something like “Undergoing revisions – 60%” or something like that. Or at least, have it listed in the main section like that and have details down below? I’m just not sure. But I think there is still something to be said for listing all the guides in one big table.

    anyway, i found out why the |C| Tag didn’t work. I play German version, so for Warrior it has to be |C|Warrior,Krieger| to work with both versions. However i played a female shaman and the german class names have been “genderized” so it has to be |C|Shaman,Schamane,Schamanin| X[

    I’m working on part two of the guide now (6-10)

    Shinke’S Tauren GuideOh, i found yet another issue. The class name for Hunter is Jäger. however Tourguide can’t cope with “ä”. I will try to work around that.

    Shinke’s Tauren GuideSorry for posting a third time in a row, but i found a solution and i think it might be useful for everyone trying to localize your guides.

    When editing the lua file via windows editor, make sure you save the file as follows:
    Click “Save as”, then choose “UTF-8” as coding, which can be chosen underneath the filename and the file type. I hope that helps… at least Jäger now works as class tag… I will leave the localized versions of the Class names in the file, so that people with german client dont have to wait for a german version of the guide but can still use the english ones… If someone tells me the class names (and also the names for the genders) for other localizations i will add these as well…

    THANK YOUTo whomever uploaded the Dragonblight.lua… Thank you SOOO much for doing what I felt the previous guides needed and adding in the coords of new quests and quest turn ins that were not at the players current position. I don’t know how many times I had to alt-tab out of wow while using the other guides to look up who to pick up a quest from! THANK YOU!!
