    Zygor Guides vs Other Leveling Guides

    Alright, here is your chance to say what you really think about Zygor Guides products and services. If you've ever purchased a guide from a different guide maker, we want to know how Zygor compares. Feel free to say whatever you like about your experiences, which guide you ended up liking better and why, who had better customer service, and anything else you'd like to share. Be sure to mention other products you've tried by name.

    I have used quite a few guides actually.

    I really have no problem leveling at all, I have been playing for over 4 years now, One reason I look at different guides is basically comparison. Yes, I will admit I use the leveling guide probably all the time just because I am lazy to actually Look up a quest or something along those lines... Anyways about the guides, I used Brian Kopps guide there for a little while, Was a great guide honestly, but then I stumbled across your guide and then found out your guide blew that guide into the water.

    Anywho... plus Brian's guide no longer exists as Zygor probably ran him out of business haha (j/k). I also tried Team ideamise, but their guide is basically a Copy of Zygors in game guide (quests and everything is different) I just mean They "attempted" to try and come close but failed. I have never liked them anyways, Plus when it comes to customer support, they suck!! Period.!!

    Hmm that's about it for guides I have tried, I will stick with Zygor's guide for NOW and probably until I quit WoW, hehe. plus with the new addition to Zygor's guide, you can't go wrong.. really!

    Plus Zygor is always updating everything to his guides which is a BIG +++

    Hmmm.. Soap Box Time!!!

    My view .. one word FREAKEN AWESOME. {smiles}. Never could count. I have used many guides ..and finally found Zygor. These are my views.

    1. Easy down load
    2. Continually supported
    3. Quickly "versioned" in parallel with the game
    4. Never leveled so fast - have done 60, 70, and 80s .. with Zygor at least 25% faster - casually am doing a 'toon to 80 in under 8 "game days".
    5. Simple to use.. minimized frame is awesome
    6. Content to the point and the progress tracking just awesome
    7. The new version, and the enhanced ability to change/modify skin and frame, font, viewing panels, etc. BRILLENT!
    8. Forums, Developer feedback, and general community AWESOME and really adds to the support.

    {takes deep breath}.. yes, I can go on.. but I think the point is made... Thanks Mr. Cook, Developers, Support, and community. None better.

    Basically I will second everything that the previous two posters have said. I have tried BK's Guide, IDemise's Guide, Dugi's Guide, and the free tour guide. Nothing comes close to the leveling speed and functionality of Zygors. Plus as stated above the support and quick response to patches and bugs is just amazing and not found anywhere else.

    The only complaint that I have, which is the reason I even looked into the other guides, is the dependancy on Cartographer/Tom Tom. I absolutely loathe both of these addons. The only thing the other guides had over Zygor's is the ability to use Carbonite. I believe this is because of the way that they code the waypointing functions inside the LUA. While they all still claim to need Tom Tom/Cartographer, carbonite has been able to emulate the waypoints perfectly. A function that is not present in Zygor's. A lot of people have now moved over to using Carbonite, especially since it went free. And I still feel it would be great to have the ability to utilize carbonites functionality instead of being forced to use cartographer/Tom Tom.

    However, even with the complaint I still have not found a guide that even comes close to Zygors and will be sticking with it for every character I level. My best time 1-80 is 6d 1h game time. Best time with any of the other guides was 7d 21h game time.

    Just wanted to point out that I use Zygor's guide and don't have Cartographer at all. I do have Tomtom and the guide automatically recognized that.

    Smile Geat stuff

    First of all, I love zygor's guide and the talent advisor. Having said that, I do have, er, not a complaint, but I guess a feature I would like to see. Not a big deal, but here it is

    With Tourguide you can make a macro that will use whatever object TourGuide says you should use. IE: When doing the Innoculation quest in the Draemie nursery, you have to use a device to innoculate the Owlkins. with the following macro, you dont have to click on the item.

    /click TourGuideItemFrame

    So you create one macro and whenever the guide shows you an item to use, clicking on the hotkey will activate the device. Now Zygor's guide does have it that you can click in the guide box on an item. Is there an equivalent macro command I can use?

    If it is taking you 8 game days to level to 80, theres something wrong still. I have used these guides to go from 1 to 85 in less than 4 game days! It was an absolute record in my guild. They wanted to know how I did it, and all I said was Zygor. It was all that needed to be said.

    Haha, I think I still take 8 days simply because I'm always goofing off checking on addons and stuff and end up wasting hours sitting and doing nothing.

    Originally I bought Brian Kopp's guide back in the day. It was a total pain to use. It took me longer to read the guide than to do the quests! I also tried some of the other guides on the market, and I wasn't really happy with any of them. When I got Zygor's guide, I was surprised at how easy it was to use.

    Compared to Zygor's guide, the others were greatly lacking. I have been using Zygor's in-game guide now for a long time, and I just upgraded to 2.0. I can tell you that Zygor's guide is far, far better than any of the others on the market. Not once did it leave me hanging, or lost.

    I'm the admin of, a well establish World of Warcraft guide site, and I am a huge supporter of Zygor's guide above all the others. You can count that as an official endorsement!

    Cool New Version


    I want to start off by thanking you for your guide and addon. I have used it to level several characters now and I think its best guide on the market. I have tried Joanas, Brians, Jame's, Random free ones, and by far Zygor is the best.

    I just started using the new version and I have to say there are some really nice features. It seems like its highlighting quests I have which ROCKS ASS.
