Zygor’s Burning Crusade Classic Guides Now Available!

by (2 weeks ago).

Zygor’s Burning Crusade Classic Guides are now available for download. This update (Version 2.0.24855) includes the following changes:

  • Viewer updated to ZGV Version 8.0 style and features.
  • Featured section updated for TBC.
  • Starter Guides for Draenei and Blood Elf added in.
  • 1-60 guides revised for TBC changes.
  • 60-70 Outland guides added

To gain access to this content all you need is a Zygor Elite subscription which you can sign up for here.

Please note that this update is mostly to add in the files for The Burning Crusade Classic but isn’t intended to be the final version of these guides. Our team is working through the weekend to test the new guides and make sure they’re as polished as can be when the Burning Crusade Classic goes live next Tuesday, so there will be additional fixes between now and then.

The guides will be updated to their final state before the servers go live.

The Burning Crusade Classic Pre-Patch Guide Update Now Available!

by (4 weeks ago).

The prepatch update for our Burning Crusade Classic guides is now rolling out to all Zygor Elite customers.

In order to get this update, you will first need to download version 4.3.16 of the Zygor Guides Client. This will add in an entry for The Burning Crusade guide content and allow you to install the guides.

Note: only the 1-12 Draenei and Blood Elf starter guides and the revised 1-60 guides have been released at this time. The Outland guides will come at a later date.

Known Issues and Troubleshooting:

The Talent Advisor being broke is a known issue that is being looked into.

If you see a blue bar with no Guide Viewer loading, and a green Zygor button, you probably have 2 versions of the addon running. Uncheck (disable) ZygorGuideViewerClassic from your ingame addons list and leave ZygorGuideViewerClassicTBC enabled.

Important Info:

The default directories for Classic and The Burning Crusade Classic have been changed to:

World of Warcraft Classic:
World of Warcraft\_classic_era_\
World of Warcraft\_classic_era_\WowClassic.exe
World of Warcraft\_classic_era_\Interface\AddOns

The Burning Crusade Classic:
World of Warcraft\_classic_\
World of Warcraft\_classic_\WowClassic.exe
World of Warcraft\_classic_\Interface\AddOns

This may seem kind of confusing because TBC is now located under “classic”, and vanilla Classic is now located under “_classic_era_”. In fact, you may even have to reinstall vanilla Classic to get the _classic_era_ folder to show, as it was in our case.

There was no information prior to release about how Blizzard would set up the folder scheme so we had to set client version 4.3.15 to our best guess, which we thought was going to be vanilla classic becoming _classic_era_ and Burning Crusade being added as _classic_tbc_.

Blizzard instead chose to make vanilla Classic _classic_era_ and TBC is now _classic_. We wanted to get the Buring Crusade pre-patch out earlier but it was delayed because we had to account for this unexpected change by creating client version 4.13.16. In this version, you’ll find a new “restore defaults” button under options / installations which should set your directories to the correct new folders. You can then download the Burning Crusade guides afterwards. This is now rolling out to all Zygor users but will take some time.

However, if you have not received this update to your client, you can also download and install the Burning Crusade guides manually through the members area. You will need to place the extracted folder under World of Warcraft \ _classic_ \ Interface \ AddOns.

Of course, if you’re having any trouble at all our team can assist you via the Support Page or the Forums.

Zygor’s Burning Crusade Classic Guides Release Plans

by (5 weeks ago).

Blizzard Entertainment has announced that the Burning Crusade Classic will be launching on June 1st with pre-patch set to go live on May 18th. Likewise, we will be releasing Zygor’s Burning Crusade Classic guides around these dates as well.

First, on May 18th, we will push a release to make the existing Classic addon work with the new addon api being introduced with TBC. This will retain the look and feel of the current Version 7 style viewer. On the content side, we will add in the new starter guides for the Draenei and Blood Elf races, as well as a revised questing path for 1-60.

Then, before TBC launches, we will update the addon to match the Version 8 viewer and add in the 60-70 content for leveling in Outland. Note that this is only referring to the addon feature set – the actual version number seen on the client will be something like 2.0.xxxxx to distinguish it from retail guides.

The Leveling guides will be available at launch, and we will be working as quickly as possible to add in additional guides for Dungeons, Gold, and Professions after that.

We will keep this post updated if any changes in these plans occur.
