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.

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.

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.

More NPC Journal Previewhttp://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/more-npc-journal-preview/7410/ http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/more-npc-journal-preview/7410/#comments Fri, 18 Apr 2014 10:13:09 +0000 http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/?p=7410 You may or may not be aware that our website was down for almost 24 hours yesterday and I would like to apologize for the down time.

Normally we would notify a long downtime via email as well but even our newsletter provider aweber.com was also down and we couldn’t send out any email. The event was a massive network outage that affected a lot of websites and not just ours.

While this rarely happens, I think this is a good time to remind everybody that the best way to hear the latest news from us during a server downtime is always from our facebook page @ http://www.facebook.com/DugiGuides

With that aside our server is now back on line, without any known issue.

While I have your attention, here are some more sneak peek on our latest project the NPC Journal.

We’re working hard to get this new features and guides out soon as possible, and we’re making good progress. The NPC Journal became a much bigger project that what we originally anticipated as we kept coming up with new ideas to make it better.

These are just some screenshots which doesn’t really do much justice to how awesome we think this is… but we will explain the entire feature soon with a video presentation.

Some notable things in the screenshots are

  • The new guides options Elites, Mounts, Pets and Bosses.
  • Bosses guides will cover just about all dungeon bosses and raid boss strategy for MoP and separate tab for each role. (raid content from previous expansions won’t be covered for now)
  • New hyperlinks to add all sort of nice details to the guides. eg,
    mouse hover on a NPC name will show the NPC model in a tool tip
    mouse hover on an item or spell will display the item information.
    and more hyperlinks covering faction detail, achievement, quests.
  • Clickable waypoints in the guides.
  • All the NPCs are searchable by their name using the Search Guides feature.
  • Uncollected pets and mounts names in darker colour to easily identify between collected and uncollected from the list.

Ok I hope you enjoy the new preview.

PS. We’re  planning on a early release perhaps to limited number of customers so we can get some feedback and suggestions on improvements as we polish the guides, stay tuned to our newsletters :)

Boosted a level 90? Our top 5 reasons why you will still need Dugi Guides…http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/boosted-a-level-90-our-top-5-reasons-why-you-will-still-need-dugi-guides/7384/ http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/boosted-a-level-90-our-top-5-reasons-why-you-will-still-need-dugi-guides/7384/#comments Fri, 14 Mar 2014 19:02:12 +0000 http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/?p=7384 Did you recently boosted a character to 90 that came free from the expansion pre-order?

I hate to break this to you…

because it’s not as great as it sound once you discover that you only get 150g in your bag which makes it a very poor maxed level character with no profession to make gold.

Where if you had leveled your character the traditional way you will likely have over 10,000 gold in your pocket which you can use to level your professions, mounts, pets, new gear, gems and enchants for your gear.

I think a common misconception with Dugi Guides is that it’s only good for leveling…

but here’s our top 5 reasons of why you still need Dugi Guides at level 90.

1. Timeless Isle Guide

A boosted level 90 character will begin in the Timeless Isle and this guide is extremely useful to help you complete the Timeless Isle quests and also to easily locate all the treasure chests which will contain many epic upgrades for your gear (ilvl 496)

capture1

2. Profession Guides

Leveling a profession from 0 to 600 is going to take a lot of time and money… Dugi Profession guide is the perfect companion to help you level any profession quickly and cost effective. The profession guide also comes with farming route and location if you want to collect your own materials.

3. MoP Daily Quest Guides

Earn Gold, Valor points and Reputations by using Dugi Daily Quest guides.

Capture2

4. The Tillers Farming Guide

Build your farm with the Tiller Daily Quest guide and spend as little as 5 minutes per day to collect over 500g gold.

Check out the special video below to discover how it works.

5. MoP Leveling Guides

Last but not least, the MoP Leveling Guides are still useful at level 90 because you can complete all the quests and earn extra gold instead of XP because you’re already maxed level, eg completing the Dread Waste guide will earn you over 1000 gold plus gear rewards that you can disenchant or vendor.

 

Of course there are many other reasons to use Dugi Guides such as completing your achievements, leveling new characters or simply using the handy addon features such as the GPS waypoint arrow, Map Tracking and Gear Advisor. 

Warlords of Draenor expansion is due to release 12/20/2014  or earlier, which means you will be covered for the expansion with our one year updates that comes with your purchase. And you will have plenty of time to make use of the guides before the expansion aswell.

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.

Warlords of Draenor FAQ

Here is our answers to some the frequently asked question on how our plans to update Dugi Guides for Warlords of Draenor (The new expansion for World of Warcraft), we will update this faq as we get more information on WoD.

1. Will Dugi Guide be updated for WoD?

Yes! with every expansion we begin working on the guides during the expansion beta and will likely complete the 90-100  leveling guide ready for you to use the moment the expansion is available on live servers. We were able to complete leveling guides update on time for Cataclysm and MoP so we expect to be able to complete on time again for WoD.

2. What will the expansion update cover?

Just about all the guides will be updated. The largest update will be the new level 90-100 guides for the new Zones. There will also be updates for the Daily, Achievements, Professions, Dungeons and Events guides for the new Zones.

3. Will the expansion WoD update for Dugi In-Game Guides be included with my purchase?

Keeping your guides updated is very important as with every Patch or expansion updates there are a lot of changes or new things added to the game.

Your Dugi In-Game Guides purchase will include 1 year worth of updates, this means if WoD is released within a year from now you will be able to download the WoD update. Since we are close to the end of Mist of Pandaria expansion, it is very likely that that Warlords of Draenor will be released within a year from now.

We think our this is a fair pricing model because this ensures our customers that they will always have the latest updates for at least a year after their purchase, unlike our competitor’s pricing where you will be charged an additional expansion update fee of up to $110 to cover all of their guides.

If you have any other questions about the expansion don’t hesitate to ask in the comment section below.
