Dugi Guides™ » Dugi Guides Addon http://www.ultimatewowguide.com WoW Leveling Guides, Dailies, Events, Profession, Loremaster, Achievement, Dungeon Guides Mist of Pandaria Tue, 08 Apr 2014 08:50:41 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.8.2 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.

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.

  • 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

New Icon System (Build 6.200)http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/new-icon-system-build-6-200/6437/ http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/new-icon-system-build-6-200/6437/#comments Tue, 23 Oct 2012 09:02:34 +0000 http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/?p=6437 This latest update is an overhaul of our steps icons to better help users instantly identify their current task and I have to admit it was long overdue :)

  • New steps icons (see help tab)
  • New multi icons for multi tasked steps. eg Killing an NPC to collect item steps will display a combination Kill + Collect icon.
  • All steps icons have been adjusted to reflect their appropriate task.

Here is a quick example of the differences

Before the icons were generic and bland… it didn’t really provide you with much indication of what you’re supposed to be doing.

The cog  and book icon was over used with many of our quest steps.

It should be a lot more detailed like this..

Now each icon is matched with the task to instantly describe what you should be doing for each step.
  The cog icon suggest a general task that will cover steps that doesn’t involve any combat, looting or speaking to any NPC.
 The spear icon is a Kill task and it is used when a step only require killing an npc to complete.
 The bag icon is a Collect or Looting task  and it is used when a step only require collecting an item to complete.
 The chat icon is a Speaking task and it is used when a step only require speaking to an NPC to complete.

 

To make it more detailed we also added extra icons for steps that involve multiple task  eg.

 

 This is a Kill and Collect icon, eg  for the quest ‘Rummaging Through the Remains‘ above involve killing an NPC and collecting an item from the corpse to complete the quest.
 This is a Kill and General task icon which is usually for task that involve using an item to complete.
 This is for a step that involve Speaking and Killing or combat. 
 For steps that involve using a vehicle or mount.
 For steps that require Speaking then using a Vehicle.
 This step is used when you need to accept one or several Random Daily quest(s) from the NPCs in the area. It will require a manual tick after you accept the quest(s).
 The book icon will remain to be used for ‘As you go..‘ step and also special notes that will likely require manual ticking for to continue.

 

All right I hope you find our new icon system straight forward and easy to identify, our goal to always improve the guides and addon in anyway we can.

Dugi Update for Patch 5.0.4http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/dugi-update-for-patch-5-0-4/6170/ http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/dugi-update-for-patch-5-0-4/6170/#comments Tue, 28 Aug 2012 23:35:10 +0000 http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/?p=6170 Patch 5.0.4 is now live on US servers and its time for you update your guides.

Dugi 6.000 update

This is a small update to make the addon compatible with Mist of Pandaria patch 5.0.4 as well as some adjustment with leveling guides and profession guides to bring them aligned with the latest changes.

If you don’t know what patch 5.0.4 is about I highly recommend you read the patch 5.0.4 survival guide or watch the video below.

Talent Guides

Out talent guides that comes with the Talented addon has been removed and it is now obselete. For now we won’t be updating the talent guides or offering any alternatives because  (trust me)  you really don’t need them anymore.

Blizzard have updated the talent system that allow you to have interesting choices  to make and they are very well balanced that no talent skill is clearly superior to the other on the same Tier. Once you log in and check out the new talent system you will understand what I mean.

I suggest you go with your gut feeling, and choose a skill that you like the most and have fun with it. You can also change your talent while you play.

Enjoy patch 5.0.4!
-Dugi
