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. 😉
After my purchase of Zygor Guides, I have made a discovery of the option to manually install the package given to the customer by a link. I sent the link to my friend, and he got the most recent version of the addon. This greatly surprised me, in which case I decided to tell the fellow members of Se7en Sins this exploit. This is completely legit, no scams, no jokes, please keep this discreet as possible so that the administrative team does not fix this exploit for your benefit of not having to purchase the addon like I did.
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.
I got banned after one month of use. So I would not recommend Zygor guides. Instead, I have used the Ultimate WoW Guide to level 6 toons to 120 in just 4 weeks of played time! The Ultimate WoW Guide has made WoW fast, easy and way more enjoyable for me. I am making 3000 plus gold per month at auction with the gold guide. So why not give the Ultimate WoW Guide a try on a toon with their FREE leveling guide below?
I've hit level 65 recently and have noticed my leveling speed drop really fast, I knew this would happen but I'm just looking for ways to become a little more efficient with questing. Right now I'm zipping all over the place without much idea on what to do first. Would this ruin the gaming experience though? (I'm still planning on reading all the quests for story). Or is there any alternatives with a lower price tag?. Also is Zygor guides actually any good? And lastly, (sorry for all the questions) is using it going against WoW rules?
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.
Was going to pickup a leveling guide. and going to take yours. was going with zygors but their prices is way 2 much for ally/horde ($60 usd) while u have a monthly subscription WHICH i was thinking of asking zygor if they had. after reading up comparison, urs seem the choice to pick. I tried their trial and using a guide seems awesome but they dont have good Multiboxing Feature (RAF) so Your Hard Leveling Guide would probably be awesome! You got yourself an customer. AT LEAST for minium of 1 month =)
Ok, i'll continue with this assessment. You will have basic courses for ones persona wether you participate in horde or maybe the Alliance this specific doesn't make a difference as well as Zygor has even looked at a number of differerent personas weak spots as well as talents. As not all avid gamers hold the searcher capabilities you'll not be directed on the mission if there is the possibility associated with not necessarily having the capacity to finish it going single. Is very understandable.
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.
Zygor Guides are quite popular when it comes to World of Warcraft (WOW). The guide developed by John Cook is an in-game guide that uses a step-by-step approach. After installation, you will be able to follow the guide from inside. It will show you where your next location should be. The guide is suitable for experienced as well as new players. It is also compliant with the most current add-on regulations and policies from Blizzard. The latest guide is Zygor 3 and has been polished and redesigned for Cataclysm. The Zygor Talent Advisor add-on which comes as part of the package advises you on the best areas to use the talent points so as to move to the next level.
The leveling path was built around using a Hunter character and run by a player who knows how to use that character well. For the average player running, for example, a Paladin, the guides could be frustrating in spots, due to the level of the mobs. I played through Joana’s Guide with a Rogue (all the way from 1-70) and was able to deal with most everything, except for a few elites and I skipped most all of the group quests.
If you're in a big hurry to hit the end do these two things, run each dungeon at least once and complete the quests inside them, dungeons give HUGE amounts of experience for their quests last I knew and que for a battleground every so often. While it's not the fastest leveling, it mixes things up a bit and gives you a break from the grind, and if you're not crazy into the story it's a huge grind.
So far it seems like the guides direct you to the easiest/best way to get stuff done. The waypoints they use are better than some other places because it tells you how to get to a certain place rather than saying "Go to X place" it says "Go out of the building and down the path" then once you do those things it says "Go kill X mob Y mob and Z mob until you have A items". It has given some pointers too for an area it was like "If you kill a lava thing it gives you a buff so you can walk on the lava" so it tells you to kill some lava things (JC quest in WoD)
Regardless, I'm not promoting torrenting with that and especially not Zygor as the "add-on" itself is lacking in any real usefulness, it feels similar to those "Gold guides" that promotes themselves as giving some kind of "secret" information when there really isn't any, it's just a compilation of things that sound good the first time you read it but in the end you still need to put in the effort & by then you could've just skipped purchasing the "guide" & spent your time reading up on something like Tradeskillmaster.
You can tell the gold guide users on the AH though. When you are posting things up, if you are the only one and you put it up for say 1000g. Next time you go to post it might tell you to put it up for 1050g, then 1100g. Then 1200g. etc, ad naseum. It doesn't stay the stay it keeps adding the price till it is WAY out of whack with anything reasonable. Still it's pretty good for posting up stuff so long as you know the price already.
I forked Tekkub’s TourGuide repo from github to my own github account in January 2009. If “forking” wasn’t allowed and if TourGuide is not “open source”, the wrong message is clearly sent to the public by hosting it on as a public repositories without any form of license. There are options in GitHub to protect your software to which Tekkub chose not to use.
Disclaimer: Part 1: If you buy the guide through the links on this page I do get a cut. Part 2: With the guide I have leveled one Rogue from 70 to 90, another from 1-90 (yeah, two 90 Rogues,) a DK from 55-90, a mage from 1-90, and various others. Family members have leveled an assortment of other characters, some with little gear, others with full heirlooms and Recruit a Friend (3x XP.) So I confess, I like this guide. We all do.
