Some addons are standalone, and are able to run without any additional addons being installed; others can require certain other addons to be installed to work at all, or integrate with other addons to provide additional functionality. Collections of addons that have been put together to form a coherent user interface are sometimes referred to as UIs.
Because it's so much effort to click a button and go to a website? If you don't want to do that, then don't check out their addons. It clearly states in the title that it's from wow-pro. Just avoid them. I wouldn't have thought to go to their website to get an addon because I mostly just search on this site. So I'm glad that they posted even a partial addon and informed me that they have many more on their site. So, no, I won't support your moody, lazy demands of all or nothing. The purpose of addons is to make gameplay easier and more enjoyable. If their willing to invest their time into making amazing addons for the wow community, then you shouldn't bash them for advertising their site. Like Jason said, " If they do gain something from vists, they deserve it."
Since it's like a premium version and it's not modifying game files it gets by somehow. I personally hate Zygor's guides and always have, it's just personal honestly. I understand some people like his guides and have no problem paying for them but I personally hate the idea of charging someone for an addon that - as this post points out - has plenty of bugs in it. These were fixed last week and if I'm paying cash for an addon I want that addon bug free and not causing a hassle and taking my time away when I could be doing a better job without an addon at all.
A lot of different types of addons are doing exactly the same thing. For example, Cross Realm Assist was an cross realm addon but in fact it is an LFG addon with its own UI. Serverhop and WQGF were doing exactly the same thing from program logic perspective. Even Badboy as a chat filter addon would filter LFG spamming. The idea behind BlockChinese could actually be used for premade groups as well. There is no point for people to install so many different addons for doing the exactly the same thing. These features should share the same code base and work together.
1 All expansion guides are written in the Battle for Azeroth beta in order to have them ready on launch day. It's important to note that betas can be buggy and unstable and may delay and even halt our progress on the guides. Furthermore, the time between the start of beta and the announced release of Battle for Azeroth is much shorter (by about 2-3 months) than past betas. As a result, our primary focus is to have the Leveling guides updated by the launch, and only if those are complete and time remains will we work on updating the remaining guides. All guides not finished in beta will be updated post launch. You can read more about this here.
Zygor Guides is an in-game software strategy guide for World of Warcraft. Every guide comes complete with the Guide Viewer, which displays step by step instructions of what quests to accept, how to complete objectives, when to use items, and more. Our gorgeous waypoint arrow will point you exactly where to go at all times and the model viewer will display fully rendered 3D models of NPCs and objects mentioned in the guide.
I used Zygor for legion and BFA, used AA on an alt for BFA. Personally i like Zygors format more. I like being able to target things like achievements. I used Zygor to get my Mindworm and my Lucid Nightmare as well as finish the Rep grinds for the allied races. I have zero complaints. My experience was great. I also used Zygor for some professions, recipe acquisition, a couple mounts, all of the Suramar quest line. Thank God for that. And for the last zone of Draenor on my Demon Hunter.. i forget the name.. Whatever the big daily hub thing was called.
Now he's closing his project yet again. Leaving us all in the dark. Thanks to the few that have to "big men" in the torrent scene. I just hope that someone else comes along that knows what Whoknowsit does and is willing to put up with the egos and the BS in the scene to share the guides we all enjoy. Because all I've seen so far are a bunch of people stealing Whoknowsit's research and the donators' wishes to keep it in THIS scene and safe for THIS SCENE, who don't know what they are doing.
I just rolled my very first Horde character and I'm super excited(especially since I have some heirloom pieces on). I was wondering if anyone has used this addon for the purpose of leveling? I used it on my main briefly for the achievement module, which, as far as I could tell, didn't really do anything. I used the Zygor guide a while back, and it was nothing short of amazing, but I'm feeling cheap this time around lol.
Then I made my way inside the cave in Stillpine Hold to complete the last half of the quests: inspect the blood crystals, kill Chieftain Oomooroo, the 9 Crazed Wildkin, and The Kurken. Only it took me a while to get to the cave. I didn’t know the quest was inside the cave so I tried using the waypoint to find the location, but it directed me on the other side of the mountain. Which was quite far from the cave.
Anyway I will go ahead & download the Twitch app like everyone's saying, but I still need to know whether my in-game addon settings will carry over automatically, or whether they'd return to default same as if they'd all been uninstalled in the curse client then reinstalled from scratch. Because if it's the latter then I will have to take screenshots of the settings on all my toons BEFORE I install the addons thru the Twitch client.
