The leveling path was built around using a Hunter character and run by a player who knew 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.
I recently decided the whole "make gold" thing is awesome...but I can't seem to wrap my head around what makes a good deal and what doesn't. After trying my hand at a few auctions I decided to do the zygor guides for leveling and rep and everything that's included (pretty cool so far...but if there's a free option I'd like to have that). Well they have a goldmaking guide. It updates data like TSM and tells you what is supposed to be the best deals to farm or whatever...well the best deal it was telling me was 8800 volatile fires. It was supposed to be an amazing deal but come on....8800 volatile fires?

I wouldn't recommend getting Zygor guides. Many people plus myself report that their WoW account got banned just weeks after using the Zygor leveling guide. I understand many people use Zygor with success, but there is likely a higher risk of ban than you think. Please check the comment section at the bottom of the page for many reviews from people who got banned by Blizzard. If you've been banned and just discovered this page please go ahead and share your experience in the comment section.
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.
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.
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)
I believe that if, at any time, Tekkub intimated in any way that you could use his code, whether it was thru formal contract or an informal ‘hey if you want’ email, … from that point on, unless he formally requires you to stop using it, that you are free to continue to do so. At such time as Zygor gained ownership of said code, it would be his responsibility to use a discover process, similar to when you search for liens on a home prior to buying it, to make sure no one had been given prior permission to use it. Tekkor should have made Zygor aware of anyone commercially using his code, and Zygor should have made a formal request of you Dugi, to stop using the code, long before he took legal action against you. Lawyers put their pants on one leg at a time like anyone, and there is a reason everyone tells lawyer jokes. So just because he is using an attorney doesn’t mean he is within his rights. That IS a joke! And, he can’t specify an amount to pay, or ‘he’ll take you to court’. He probably screwed himself right there. And he certainly can’t prevent you from creating addons for a game he doesn’t own. Take a deep breath and relax. Just tell him you’ll ‘see him in court’. It will go your way. I guarantee it.
One of the new features introduced in Zygor Guides 4.0 is the “Travel System”. Whenever a step in our guide tells you to go somewhere, the Travel System will dynamically calculate the fastest route to your objective from where you’re currently standing. The Travel System will even factor in unique methods of transporation, such as using your hearthstone, and class spells such as the mage teleport ability.
BTW, one of the issues I had when I tried the trial version of your guide is that it did not seem to take the character’s actual level in consideration. I remember a number of times going to the NPC I was directed too and seeing a white Exclamation point rather than yellow. Or, in some cases, no exclamation point at all. Not knowing why frustrated me.
It showed what items were on the rise, which ones were stagnant, and which ones were going down. I don't know how accurate it is since I am not familiar with my realms AH yet. I put some things on the AH with the Zygor suggested price and sold about 5k worth of stuff (I had a ton of MoP gems/herbs sitting around). I did use TSM suggestions as well and for the most part they seemed pretty close. But I did do an AH scan with Zygor before posting.
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...
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.
