Overview

The Guide Viewer is the frame placed on your screen that allows you to view the contents of the guide you currently have loaded. Guides are displayed in a single step-by-step format with plain text instructions telling you what to do.

The information displayed in the Guide Viewer will change on every step, but most steps follow a general pattern. Here's a breakdown of some of the most common instructions you will see:

Go to XX,YY - This is what is known as a "go to" line. In order to complete this step you will be required to go to this location in the game. The destination is written as an X/Y coordinate that corresponds to an exact location on your map. In order to make finding these locations simple and easy our guide has several tools for helping you get around including a Waypoint Arrow and Travel System. These will be discussed in a later section.

Talk to NPC - A "talk to" line means you need to speak with a non-playable character (or NPC) in order to perform the required goals of the step. A 3D render of the NPC in question will show up in the Model Viewer if you have it enabled for easy finding. Clicking on the name of the NPC with the guide viewer will auto-target that NPC if they are in range.

Accept / Turnin - An "accept" or "turnin" line simply tells you that you should accept or turnin the quest(/s) mentioned in the step.

Kill NPC - A "kill" line represents one of the many types of quest objectives you will come across. This line essentially tells you to kill a certain named type of mob. Like "talk to" lines, the mob in question will show up in the Model Viewer which makes it really easy to know what you need to kill. Sometimes these lines will require you to kill a certain numerical amount of the mob, in which case the number will be displayed and will dynamically update as you kill each mob to show you how many you have remaining.

Get item - Sometimes a quest will require you to collect items, either by clicking on things or looting corpses. A "get" line tells you what item you need to get and tracks your progress as you do so.

The Zygor AddOn is able to detect your actions, so when you accept/turnin quests, complete quest objectives, or perform other step goals it will update with your progress and advance to the next step when all goals have been met. The guide uses colored backgrounds to indiciate the current status of completable goals.

Red = Incomplete. The goals have not yet been met

Green = Complete. All goals have been met for this line.

Transitioning from red to green = Indictates that you're getting closer to completing the goal. (Transitions can be enabled in options)

Gray = Impossible. You do not have the needed quest in your log

Purple = Error. You're supposed to turn in a quest you didn't DO yet, or something similar. Go back a few steps, or report this as an error if  you followed the guide perfectly)

There are various controls and settings that can be be configured directly from the guide frame. These will be explained in the following sections.
