    Zone guides?

    I think for some of us who are wanting to enjoy our leveling experience at a slower pace and take in the zones beauty, I'd almost prefer to use a zone guide as oppose to an "inefficient" leveling guide. Any idea on how long it's gonna take you guys to offer an option like that?

    Zone guides like you see in the retail BfA guides just don't work in classic.

    I'd like the be able to pick my own leveling flow (seeing as Zygor's classic flow is so inefficient), and just receive guidance on the quests I choose to do. In the retail guide I can search quests via the quest log, but can't seem to do this in classic.

    So you’re saying I can’t quest through an entire zone without say, jumping to an entirely different zone.....for 2 quests.....then coming all the way back to the original zone I was questing in? I call bs.....because I just did it in Darkshore (your guide tried to send me to Westfall twice). The amount of time I spend hopping continents is not worth the amount of XP I gain by doing those few quests I left for.

    I’m not saying make the guide like retail. But I fail to believe you can’t have zone guides. There “may” be a few zones where you encounter a skip in recommended levels (25-30, 35-43) but for those instances, the guide should break and not just flow. People get into a rythem when they’re questing and hopping continents really slows down momentum.

    Also, where’s the profession guides, rep guides, dungeon / raid guides (attunement steps)? Is that on the horizon and about how far out are we looking before we see them or do I just need to keep wowhead up all them time?

    Hi zygor guide's admins. You are fighting a losing battle not providing a zone by zone guide. I am spending more time backtracking to do prereqs for quests myself to try and fill in the gaps from your guides atm as a long time subscriber i can tell you i am not happy at all. The added punch in the face is you jumping in here telling your customers that we are being stupid asking for zone by zone guides lets US make that decision. I will say guide 25 to 30 step 118 Kill Sharptalon is not dropping the quest item because you didnt start us on the Ashenvale hunt i spent 20 kills at 5 to 10 minute respawns a pop to figure out that the guide missed something and that i was being unlucky. Please do a zone by zone with dungeon suggestions to grind the extra xp this guide in its current form is worthless. VERY UNHAPPY LONG TERM CUSTOMER.......

    Thats odd. I don't recall doing Ashenvale Hunt either, but when I killed Shartalon it dropped Sharptalon's Claw to begin the quest. I followed the guide 100% and had no issue with that in particular.

    The guide has just had me pick up the Ashenvale Hunt breadcrumb quest in Thunder Bluff.

    Funny thing...the retail version had zone guides before Cataclysm, after Cataclysm and even after the dynamic level range. So it worked for Retail. I don't see why it wouldnt work for classic.

    Perhaps people do not remember everything like they think they do. Here is a screen shot of the guide selection for one of the last versions of Zygor in WotLK before Cataclysm came out. There were no zone guides before Cataclysm. http://puu.sh/EcZlq/7f27ce4e17.png

    The current guides are not as different from the originals as some folks seem to think, but we are looking into breaking the guides into zones for easier navigation, although, in many cases, you still will not be able to just pick a zone at random and go questing there as the design of Classic does not allow this.
