    Dugi,

    Yes, you have created a very good leveling guide, and yes, it does help you level rather efficiently. The problem lies with a few claims that are on the page talking about the leveling guide to potential customers. Specifically, it says…


    – Earn Loremaster Achievements For Each Zones.
    – tick Easy Guide Selection, Pick And Choose Any Zone.

    While the guide is complete enough for MOST zones, that is not true for all. The main one I’m thinking of is the Outland zones. Nagrand seems to be particularly bad about getting you the Loremaster acheivement, although the fault there lies with Blizz including quests that only appear once you have level 70 and very fast flying.

    Furthermore, the wording seems to suggest that the guide will help you get the Loremaster acheivement for any zone, not just the ones that you selected to be in your guide. At the very least, saying “pick and choose any zone” is a little misleading.

    Again, I do appreciate all the effort that has gone into making the guide, and I do understand that it is a lot of work to include new zones, making sure that you have all the information. That being said, when you promise “any zone”, you can’t be surprised when people expect just that.

    Reply

    Dugi Reply:

    Nargrand is uncomplete for loremaster and we will fix that up as part of our loremaster upgrade, and any other zone that is not complete for loremaster. We will get there, what we meant by pick and choose any zone, we do mean any zone that is available in our guide in comparison to our competitor where their guide is catergorized by level and not by zone.

    Have the Cata expansion….noticed now there are only 2 areas on Kalimador….what happened to the rest of the areas I need to level in there…I see only 2 areas that are on the guide.
    Eastern kingdom seems to be complete.
    How do I find the quests for say Desolace?
    thanks again for your help…

    Hey Dugi, great guide(s) and great service! I would like to offer two suggestions that would, I think, improve the guide.
    1st. Sometimes there is a quest that I just can’t figure out. I have found that Wowhead is a great source for quest information. It provides more details about the quest and mentions what other quests are in the chain. Perhaps, most useful are the comments people write. I see comments from people having the same problems and others respond there with clear answers from their own experience. This is a great resource and it would be great if this guide integrated that. What I envision is that there could be a link next to the description or name of the quest, to the wowhead quest page for that specific quest. This would enable one to easily follow a link to an exterior source for more explicit help. I don’t know if there are rights issues that make this impossible. Something to think about, though.

    2nd. I like the feature where you can cross out a quest from the guide and it automatically crosses out the dependent steps. However, this is not complete. Blizzard is quest-chain happy. This seems to be especially the case in leveling from 80-85. The problem is, and has always been that failure to do one quest has many implications down the line. Its not just a matter of not being able to turn in the quest if you skip it. Others won’t be offered. For example, at first I had trouble with the quest called Clingy. If I skip this, neither “Rock Bottom” nor “Petrified Delicacies” will be offered by Kor. Unfortunately, these two subsequent quests are not crossed out in the dugi quest log. If these automatically got crossed out, as well as others in the chain, it would save me traveling from one questgiver to another, only to find that the giver doesn’t have a quest for me. In other words, the guide should X out ALL the quests that are dependent on one I might be tempted to skip. I understand that this would take some investment of time but it would be a worthy goal.

    1: If you go to wowinterface dot com and download “LightHeaded” addon, it will provide what you’re asking for. Comments from wowhead ingame. The addon will attach it self to the right of your questlog and you can click it to hide/show :)

    2: I believe once the chain data is collected/sorted, it will be implemented again, like it was in WOTLK. I’m not sure when it is ready?

    SO this new area for the thousand needle area is remakably cool BUT how do you get to the western shore? I got as far and you can on the east side and tried to jump and ended up in tanarais. Your arrow doesn’t really explain how to get around the rift in the Barrens either. This whole area is reall different now. It’s not a one shot point a to point b area. HELP please?!

    Regarding those “missing” quests… I ended up having to use the red X option; if I tried marking them as complete, they kept popping back.

    I ran across another issue with the guide. While at the new Zoram’Gor Outpost, you have us pick up the “Vorsha the Lasher” quest, and then go around to pick up more quests. however, “Vorsha” is an escort quest; if you don’t stick with the guy, you fail. I would suggest rewriting that section so that you pick up “Vorsha” AFTER the other quests and setting your hearthstone, so that you can follow the guy directly.

    Griezz Reply:

    there is another issue with the Zoram quests, Dugi. When you do the questline involving getting the hydra oil, the steps are a little messed up, which is resulting in the quest unmarking bug that we’ve been discussing.

    According to the guide, you should
    - kill hydras for the blubber
    - create the oil from the blubber
    - hearth back to Zoram’Gor
    - run and do the final step at the lighthouse

    Unfortunately, the step where you turn the blubber into the oil requires the use of the Zoram’Gor forge. That means that you should hearth back THEN create the oil at the forge, before heading out to the lighthouse. Doing it as given creates the flaw that causes the constant removal of the “completed” checks in the guide.

    Hi, Dugi

    The problem does indeed seem to be related to the issue of doing steps out of turn. However, there is a possibly related issue that might compound that bug.

    When manually scrolling through the guide, I notice that some steps, which are far in the future, seem to be already completed. Mainly, these are steps which specifically involve hearthing to your home location. Thus, if you complete the step at point A in the current guide (where you are), then you apparently also are marked down for any time that exact same step (hearthing to the same location) appears in the guide. Ex: “Hearth to Splintertree Post”.

    On another note, I have come across two steps in your guide which are apparently not in the release version of 4.0.3a. In the Ashenvale guide, steps “Demon Duty” (apparently given by Locke Okarr) and “Satyr Horns” (apparently meant to be given by Pixie) are not active. Furthermore, when I check the entries for those NPCs on Wowhead, I see that those NPCs do indeed finish the quest… but there is no indication of who or what is meant to start them. Error on Blizzard’s part?

    Hey Dugi,
    you said you removed the Dungeon Leveling guide.
    There comes a problem with it though: In the Outlands and Northrend they have not changed dungeon leveling at all.

    Are you planning to put those back in or are they gone, since my character is 65 now and I thougt about buying the guide for 70-80.

    An update on the repeating error where previously completed steps were unmarked…

    Having gone through the Mulgore set for my Tauren paladin, I then started the Northern Barrens set. Unfortunately, the bug still pops up even more frequently. Over and over, I would use Dugi’s suggestions to “/dg fix” (which gives an error popup on the screen) and the “/reload” command. However, after a few more steps, the guide pops right back to the same previously completed step (right now, the step in question is “Consumed by Hatred” aka “Vengeance for Mankrik’s wife”).

    So, while the “/dg fix” & “/reload” commands to provide temporary relief, the fix does not last very long.

    The problem started with the quest where you are magically transported from the mesa to Bloodhoof village (can’t remember the name of the quest) and spread to other quests. I rebooted the game and that seemed to clear it up for a while, but the problem resurfaced with other quests. The clearing would happen each time that you do something that alters an ongoing quest, picked up a new one, or completed a quest. An exception seems to be any quest that is a precursor to a quest you currently have open. For example, if you’re on the second “water well cleansing” mission, the steps for the first such mission won’t be cleared.

    There might be a conflict with your wow cache and savedvariables

    to fix this exit wow
    delete the folder World of Warcraft\Cache

    Enter WoW
    make sure Dugis Guide Viewer v4.40 and TomTom are ticked in the addons

    Enter the game

    type /dg fix
    type /reload

    If the problem still occur, try disabling all your addons and other than

    Problem with Dugi’s Guide – an admitted first

    Okay, I installed the latest versions of the downloads before I logged in to the new Azeroth. I started a Tauren pally, which I was looking forward to. Things seemed to okay at first… until I headed for Bloodhoof Village.

    All of a sudden, steps in the guide which I had previously completed and checked off were suddenly unmarking themselves. It starts with “Rite of Wind”; the ! step, the quest step and the ? step keep unchecking themselves, which automatically makes the guide flip back to it. I push myself to ignore it, but then the same thing happens with the “Sharing the Land” quest. I’m afraid your guide fails if it keeps flipping back like that, basically forcing you to disregard the leveling guide.

    /reload should do the same thing as relogging. to save you time.

    actually, the problem may have resolved itself. Just try exiting hte game entirely and then re-enter. That seems to have cleared up the bug.

    Griezz Reply:

    Further update: the problem with the quests un-marking themselves in the guide re-occurred, albeit at a later spot. It would seem that we have to either keep exiting the game and restarting, or wait for Dugi to figure out what the problem is.
