Efficiency Update Now Available for Alliance Classic Guide

by (8 weeks ago).

The Alliance version of the Efficiency Update is now available for Zygor’s World of Warcraft: Classic guides. This restores the Alliance guide back to the extremely popular and well received version of the guides used during the Vanilla days of WoW.

The biggest difference between our Day One release is that the Efficiency Update is focused on taking the most efficient route to power level your characters, and will no longer have you travel long distances to other zones in order to replace grind spots with more quests, or do extra quests in the low levels to get you much higher for later sections, both things intended to make the guides more casual friendly but which ended up making them feel less optimized.

We’re confident the new guides will feel much better now and will actually require less grinding at times as you’ll now be instructed to kill more yellow enemies than greens.

The Efficiency Update is now available in Version 1.0.20932. The Horde Version already received the update last week.

What about the option to use both versions of the guides?

The Efficiency Update is objectively better and actually requires LESS grinding. The Day One release is a slower, less optimal guide experience and continuing with it would require us to maintain two versions of the guides and deal with double the customer support issues, all of which are resolved in the Efficiency Update. It was more immediately crucial that we get these guides updated to address the concerns, but we will add in some alternative zone guides for people who prefer this as an option in a future update.

Efficiency Update Now Available for Horde Classic Guide

by (2 months ago).

As announced last week, the Horde Version of the Efficiency Update is now available for Zygor’s World of Warcraft: Classic guides. This restores the Horde guide back to the extremely popular and well received version of the guides used during the Vanilla days of WoW.

The biggest difference between our Day One release is that the Efficiency Update is focused on taking the most efficient route to power level your characters, and will no longer have you travel long distances to other zones in order to replace grind spots with more quests, or do extra quests in the low levels to get you much higher for later sections, both things intended to make the guides more casual friendly but which ended up making them feel less optimized.

We’re confident the new guides will feel much better now and will actually require less grinding at times as you’ll now be instructed to kill more yellow enemies than greens.

The Efficiency Update is now available in Version 1.0.20863. The Alliance version of the Efficiency Update will be made available in the next week or so.

What about the option to use both versions of the guides?

The Efficiency Update is objectively better and actually requires LESS grinding. The Day One release is a slower, less optimal guide experience and continuing with it would require us to maintain two versions of the guides and deal with double the customer support issues, all of which are resolved in the Efficiency Update. It was more immediately crucial that we get these guides updated to address the concerns, but after both Efficiency Updates are out we will add in some alternative zone guides for people who prefer this as an option. For the time being, you can still manually choose to go to these zones like Silverpine, ect. if you prefer. If you find yourself struggling with enemies later on you can also run some dungeons to get up about 2 levels higher to make this go easier.

Zygor’s Classic Guides Efficiency Update Coming Soon

by (2 months ago).

Zygor’s World of Warcraft Classic guides released last week and for the most part the launch has gone smoothly. We were eager to see what the community thought about the guides and we’ve definitely heard your voices. While bugs and other issues have been minimal, there have been some concerns about the leveling routes taken in the guides, particularly when it comes to traveling to other zones.

In Vanilla WoW, leveling was always a much slower process, which made guides essential in order to speed things up. Over time, the Retail game changed and has seen a number of quality of life improvements to make the game easier and more friendly to a wider audience of gamers. As such, our own community has reflected this change, and over the years we’ve changed the style of our guide writing to cater more to these casual types of players.
