Dugi Guides Addon Changes

The new WoW 6.0 comes with a lot of changes with the API and here a few important thing that you need to know.

  • The Gear Advisor is temporarily disabled until it is fully updated for the new stats systems.
  • The Objective Tracker currently bugged after zoning into a Dungeon.  It is best to disable the addon when you’re in a dungeon.
  • The Objective Tracker (Watch Frame) is no longer moveable. Blizzard made a lot of changes to the Objectives Tracking system and moving it can create errors, we will continue to look for a solution with the live version of WoW.
  • If you wish to move Dugi Guides go to Settings > Display > and un tick ‘Anchored Frame’ mode to switch to Floating Frame and this will allow you to move Dugi Guides Small Frame anywhere on your screen.

Please bear with us as we tackle these issue, they are our top priority. click here for the full list of changes.

Enjoy Patch 6.0!

Top 10 Quick Tips When Using Dugi Guideshttp://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/top-10-quick-tips-when-using-dugi-guides/7683/ http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/top-10-quick-tips-when-using-dugi-guides/7683/#comments Thu, 31 Jul 2014 09:13:16 +0000 http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/?p=7683 While Dugi Addon is very easy to use there are still some features that our users often missed or don’t understand exactly how they work.

This post is our top 10 most asked questions that we noticed the past few weeks and I have also included some additional tips for hidden DG features that you might not be aware about.

I hope these quick tips will help you enjoy our guides even more :)

 

Top 10 Quick Tips

1. It’s important that to know that Dugi Guides comes in 3 different modes and you can switch it left clicking on the DG icon.

Gold Mode:  This is the mode offers both the in-game guides and addon features. Make sure the DG icon is gold when you want to use the in-game guides.

Silver Mode: This mode will allow you to unload the guides (saving memory) and still allow you to use some of DG’s best features such as the Waypoint & Taxi systems, Gear Advisors, Auto quest accept and more.

Copper Mode: This will turn off DG completely without unloading it from your addons selection. eg This is handy if you need to switch it off while doing PVP then you can turn it back on when you need it without logging out.

Note: A Silver Mode only version is available from Curse.com. Set Dugi addon on ignore on your Curse.com addon installer if you use it or else it will install the the Silver Mode only version and only use Dugi installer to update the addon.

2. You can  Show or Hide the Model Viewer by clicking on the yellow button on the top right corner of the Small Frame.

If you want to remove the Model Viewer permanently you can do so by going to the Settings > Memory and untick ‘Model Viewer Database’.  This will unload all the data for the Model Viewer and the addon will also run with less memory.

modelviewer_small

3. The Target Button will always match with the NPCs displayed in the model viewer.

If multiple NPCs exist in the Model Viewer you can choose which NPC you want to display and target using the arrow buttons in the Model Viewer.

target_small

4. You can Keybind the Target Button and Item Button by going to the WoW Game Menu > Keybinding and scroll all the way down to the bottom and you will find the keybinding options for Dugi Guides.

keybind_small

5. The Green or Yellow arrows that appears in your quest reward select comes from our Gear Advisor feature.

Green arrow is your best upgrade option usually for your active talent spec.

Yellow arrow is your ‘runners up’ upgrade option usually for your second inactive talent spec.

The coin on the top right corner of the quest rewards indicate the highest vendor value if you just intend to sell the item.

questreward_small

6. The upgrade arrows from gear advisor will also appear in your Dungeon Journal.

Very handy to help you decide which dungeon to enter for the best upgrades.

journal_small

 

7. You can disable the Gear Advisor feature easily by going to DG Settings > Gear Set and untick all the options and set Smart Set to ‘None’.

gearset_small

8. Something you might find handy is that you can left click on the small frame and it will open Blizzard’s Quest Details for the quest if its available.

Mouse hovering over the step icon will also display the Blizzard’s quest tooltip.

smallframe_small

9. You may have noticed the waypoint arrow will sometime turn green for no apparent reason. This is to indicate that you are now inside the questing area for the current step.

greenwaypoint_small

10. You can also create your own waypoints directly on the World Map by holding the CTRL button and Right Click on the world map. The addon will automatically create the fastest route to get to your final destinations.

You can also link additional waypoints by holding the Shift button and Right Clicking on the world map.

If you’re familiar with the TomTom addon, the /way commands will also work with DG eg “/way Nagrand 45 50″  will add a new waypoint in Nagrand at 45, 50

waypoint_small

And one more bonus tip… A hidden feature with DG that our users often don’t know about is the Find Nearest NPCs feature.

You can find this feature by clicking WoW’s Minimap tracking button and select ‘Find Nearest’

This is handy when you trying locate your local vendors and trainers.

findnearest_small

That’s it! if you have any questions about the addon and it’s features don’t hesitate to ask me in the comment section below.

What’s New With Dugi Guides?http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/whats-new-with-dugi-guides/7644/ http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/whats-new-with-dugi-guides/7644/#comments Mon, 21 Jul 2014 03:47:28 +0000 http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/?p=7644 If you have updated your guides recently, you might have already noticed the major changes that took place with Dugi Guides.

Our latest update have dramatically improved the the formatting of our guides.

Click here to Download latest Version of Dugi Guides

Check out these before and after screen shot examples..

before_en
after_en

 
Example 1: All item name now includes a matching icon and correct item rarity color. And NPC names are also in a different colour.

But the biggest advantage of this new format is the automatic translations for non-english players.

before_de
after_de

 

Example 2:
All item, npc, zones, spells, currency names in the description and title will now be automatically translated. Whereas before only the quest names were translated, the above example shows the automatic translation in German.

We also reworked the profession guides to provide you with a better shopping list.

prof_before

prof_after

Example 3: The shopping list in the profession guides are now listed nicely with bullet points instead of listed in one line as before. Again the biggest advantage of this is that the item names will be automatically translated again.

With all these changes you will find our guides even easier to follow than ever before giving you the most powerful tool for leveling for progressing your characters in World of Warcraft.

I hope you enjoy our recent updates and as always more updates to come.

Yours Truly

Boss Guides Now Availablehttp://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/bosses-guide-now-available/7504/ http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/bosses-guide-now-available/7504/#comments Sun, 11 May 2014 23:40:32 +0000 http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/?p=7504 The Boss Guides that was delayed for the NPC-Journal are now available.

Owners of the NPC-Journal should now receive the Boss guides with the latest 6.810 updates. More Boss guides will be included as we complete them.

If you don’t know what all the fuss is about here are…

Five Reasons Why You’re Going To Love The Boss Guides

1. It’s In-Game.

For the first time ever for WoW you can now get a complete Boss guides 100% in-game. You no longer have to search through poorly written wowhead comments to find the information you need.

2. The ‘Magic’ Button.

The NPC Journal button makes loading the Boss guide on the fly quick and easy. Those days of searching or scrolling through a list of guides trying to find the right guide are over.

npc3

3. Handy tooltips

Don’t you hate it when someone mentioned an NPC name and you have no idea what they look like? Each NPC mentioned in the journal comes with a model viewer tooltip so you will always know what you’re looking for.

The boss guides is also filled with interactive hyperlinks, for spell tooltips and you can also shift click any hyper link to your chat bar.

npc2

4. Role Specific Tabs

The role specific tabs will provide quick tips for your role if you don’t have time to read the complete strategy guide.

5. Avoid Being That ‘Guy’ in The Group.

Add hundreds of guides covering specific NPCs

extra_trackingThe NPC Journal Module provides the NPC Detector button that will allow you to instant load a guide in a journal format that covers…

  • 421 Mounts
  • 624 Pets
  • 101 MoP Elites
  • 59 Brawler’s Guild Bosses
  • 483 Dungeon and MoP Raid Bosses

Preview – NPC Journal Featurehttp://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/preview-npc-journal-feature/7357/ http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/preview-npc-journal-feature/7357/#comments Sun, 09 Mar 2014 08:22:59 +0000 http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/?p=7357 I’m excited to share with you a sneak peak of our brand new feature for Dugi In-Game Guides that we like to call the NPC Journal.

Our original goal is to be able to provide players with quick tips on how to fight Dungeon or Raid Bosses for each role (DPS, Heal, Tank). With this feature you don’t have to worry about jumping into a new Raid or Dungeon with other players as you can instantly look up tips without alt-tabbing to find information on a website.

This feature will be useful to instantly look up information or a guide for these specific NPCs

  • Rare Elites
  • Dungeon Bosses
  • Raid Bosses
  • World Bosses

And we thought it is also a good idea to expand this feature for…

  • Battle Pets (Companions)
  • Mounts

You can load the NPC Journal by targeting the NPC / Pets / Mounts, then a special button will appear on your screen. Clicking the button will instantly load information about the targeted NPC.

npc1

In this example the NPC Journal display information about a rare NPC in Pandaria,  this is really handy when you come across a Rare elite that can be very deadly if you don’t know what you’re up against. And it will continue to be very useful for the next expansion (Warlords of Draenor) as new tougher Rare Elite emerges.

 npc2

You can look up their abilities and also notable loot.

npc3

Please note that nothing you see here is final as there are still a lot of work to be done. We also have plans to add a green button in the text area that you can click on it to load a waypoint. We can use this to create a detailed written style guides for the Battle Pets and Mounts.

We are planning to release this latest feature as soon as we can and since it will be an optional module there will be small fee for those that want to have it. It won’t be free for loyalty members since this is not an update on existing products.

We haven’t decided on the price yet. But as always, we aim to provide extremely good value and we will offer some early bird discount.

Ok I hope you will like this new feature and look forward to it. Don’t hesitate to post your thoughts or suggestions in the comment section below.

Stay tuned to our newsletters or blog for more info later.

In this latest update we rebuilt the large frame window to a brand new setup. Our goal is to make guide selection and viewing easier while improving the overall look.

New Home Tab

  • On the top left corner there is a “Home” tab which will display all the available guide types on the left hand sides.

Improved Suggest Guides button

  • Available in the Home tab, the new suggest button will now suggest more guides from Dailies, Events, Professions depending on your character’s level, reputation, current events based on the in-game calendar. This feature is not 100% finished and will be improved to suggest more guides with upcoming updates.

Improved Search Guide 

  • Search Guide now available as default in the home tab and will display the result in the right hand side of the home tab. Type your subject to begin the guide search.

Improved Current Guide tab

  • Current guide tab now display the guide type selection on the left hand side to make it easier to switch or browse different guides.

Settings Tab Changes

  • The setting tab is available as a gear icon button to the right of current guide tab.

Record Tab Changes

  • The record tab has been removed for now as it was not very popular among users. You can access it again later by using the command /dgr  (not working yet)

 Special Note: The new default border is ElvUI , you can change the borders back to the old style by going to the Settings > Borders options.

Ok that is it! (for now..)
