As others have said, there are free alternatives... which is important to consider if the price of the Zygor Guides are a concern. If speed and convenience are more important, then they're worth it. Zygor will take you through the quests in the most efficient way possible, and their customer support and the speed with which they update the guides when changes are made to the game is impressive. I know I went from 80-85 a heck of a lot faster (in /played time) than my co-worker who doesn't have the guides. And we had a bet going to see who would make it first. For me, it was worth it. Your mileage may vary...
I use Zygor and have for years. Probably since the end of BC, I do own all their guides, I will honestly say I even spoke to Blizzard to make sure it was legal and yes...it is. IN regards to it being a waste of money, it has not been a waste of money for me....and part of the reason why I have so many high levels and maxed professions, the mounts I have...etc. A lot of people will say it is not worth it partly because it is not something they would use. Personally, what I would reccomend you do is download their free trial, create a level 1 use that character to level to 20 WITH the guide, and then level a toon from 1-20 WITHOUT the guide and decide for yourself which is better and more efficient for you. I was able to test it out because my dad let me play wow on his computer to test the guide out first hand. It saves a lot of time for me having to alt tab out and makes my game play smoother. You can check out this video I made on Zygor that explains it just a little bit more if you like, but really the only question you have to ask is "Is this guide right for you?" Its not for everyone, but for me...If they got rid of zygor for some unknown reason I would have to find another guide just as good because my game play would be destroyed as Zygor has been a major part in my game play for so long. Hope I helped and hope my video helps.
Yeah, between the forums, sites like wowhead and wowpedia, and regular questing addons, there's plenty of accurate information available, especially when problems pop up. Guides like that are generally published before a game or expansion is released too, which is fine for static games like those for consoles, but not so great for the ones like WoW that are updated and hotfixed on a regular basis. Even the WoW game manuals are obsolete by the end of the expansion.
Ya, my friend has been keeping me up to date on the devious gnome’s (Zygor’s) actions. and he just released a “NEW” dailies and events guide and also a “NEW” gold making guide too. You should counter-sue because he is stealing your guides/ideas. In my own logic you are in the right and the gnome is a little bugger that needs to just shut up. And my friend that was using zygo’s guides has switched over. He says yours are FAR better in comparison. And I also think yours are the best.

From the information I have, Zygor obtain the rights to tourguide in 18th December (incorrectly stated as November in the screen shot below) and intentionally not notify ultimatewowguide.com or anybody else. So they can wait for 2 months to gain some sort of legal grounds for suing ultimatewowguide.com and maybe others for 2 months worth of loss of income (refer to screenshot below)
Zygor guides interface has two different options. One has a lot of designs and animations and the other is simple and straightforward. Both of them are really clean and they blend in well with the WoW interface and aren’t too distracting. I like the display option that doesn’t show all the animations and stuff, so I set it to that and everything still worked great. I kind of wish the simple interface was the default option, but switching is no big deal – 9.5/10 here.
A person who enjoys “World of Warcraft” games will find Zygor Guides quite useful. One of the biggest challenges for gamers is always reaching the top level. It requires a lot of time, effort and skill to get through the different levels. In fact, new releases always increase the level cap. For instance, world of war games such as Monk Class or Pandaren went up by 5 Level caps and now stand at 90. Reaching this level can be a daunting task for both experienced as well as newbie. In fact, many players prefer the endgame experience or the final battle over the journey. The sooner they get to the top level the better the gaming experience.
Is the path faster than that of any other guide? I can’t really answer that, not having played through all of them to 90, but you will certainly move at a very fast pace. You will never wonder about where to go and what to do next. Consider this, also: Zygor advertises a 1-90 time of under 7 days. That’s as fast as anybody does it. I can also state that you’ll never be at a loss as to where to go or what to do. Zygor’s avoids the time wasting quests, as well. Overall, we’ve found it easy to use and we can just go boom, boom, boom through the quests. Very nice.
It’s easy for the new player to follow and efficient enough for the experienced player to want to use it. That’s a tough act, but John pulls it off nicely and his Zygor’s Guide rocks. Of course, one can argue that it makes the game too easy, but I’m not one of them. Want to make it a bit more difficult? Don’t worry so much about your gear and send those heirlooms to your other alt. Heck, try it naked. 😉
Both guides have a different look. Many players choose the Zygor guide because of the way it looks, with it’s modern, clean appearance. Zygor has improved it, so its easier to navigate. Dugi Guides interface blends into the game more, as it looks more like something you would find within World of Warcraft. It has icons down the right hand side for selecting your guides and is really easy to navigate.
I have no clue why anyone would even feel the need to look for a guide to do it faster than regular. It goes really fast as it is. And I don't think any guide will really affect your leveling speed much, it is all up to you: how often you go pee, how long it takes you to kill mobs, how much you chat or get distracted by other things, how much time a day you spend leveling, how often you get ganked or die from other things, how good the group is in the dungeon. It's not like looking at a guide will affect any of that. Don't be stupid and fall for some clever guy's marketing trick that "if you use my guide your wow-character will be maxlevel 50% faster than if you level without the guide", it's obviously just bs.
Thanks very much - spent 20 mins in game to get my bearings again, it's really cool being able to stay in a zone rather than worrying about mobs turning grey etc.! Quite looking forward to being able to run so many different instances now - hopefully what I read about bosses staying alive longer so you can experience the boss-fight mechanics is true.
I use it for a lot of stuff. Works incredibly well when you're leveling your 30th alt and just watching Netflix - it has an arrow that you just follow that decides what quests to do and in what order, sells stuff to the vendor and repairs as soon as you click on it, automatically accepts quests and chooses quest rewards, can even have it set up to equip gear automatically if it's an upgrade.
