After my purchase of Zygor Guides, I have made a discovery of the option to manually install the package given to the customer by a link. I sent the link to my friend, and he got the most recent version of the addon. This greatly surprised me, in which case I decided to tell the fellow members of Se7en Sins this exploit. This is completely legit, no scams, no jokes, please keep this discreet as possible so that the administrative team does not fix this exploit for your benefit of not having to purchase the addon like I did.
What am I supposed to do now? Is there a way to get the curse client working again? I've googled it but haven't found any useful results. Do I have to uninstall & re-install it from scratch? Has the Curse client been taken permanently offline, meaning that it's no longer viable software? Do I have to install a Twitch client and manage my WoW addons from there? If so, do I have to re-install all my addons from scratch, or will they somehow carry over from Curse to Twitch?
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.
As of Patch 2.3, if you get a message "Interface action failed because of an AddOn", this means that an AddOn interfered with the Blizzard UI in some way. To diagnose this, enter the following into chat "/console taintLog 1" and restart the game and try to reproduce it. If you reproduce it, you can quit the game and search through the file Logs\taint.log for the word "blocked" and mail the log to the author of the AddOn listed there. Once you have done this you can turn off logging by entering the following into chat "/console taintLog 0"

Edit: the version from wow-curse seems to be a trial. To get the real one u have to download it from http://wow-pro.com/. Then u will not find un unzip or extract all option, but u get a link further on their page to a windows page that informs u of 2 ways to unzip. So i learned that u can also unzip by double clicking on the folder. For certainty i double clicked on every folder i could find, and then put the whole bunch into interface/addons in WoW. And it works ok now.
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.
One fairly common issue people have is that older addons they install do not load when they log into the game. This is usually due to the fact that World of Warcraft tags older addons as out of date and aren't automatically loaded unless you tell the game to. This typically happens after a patch, as the game client tends to mark addons as out of date at that point.
The waypoint directed me down the path to where plenty of aggressive enemies lurked around. After killing a bunch of them (successfully stayed alive this time!) and circling around with my moth, I wasn’t able to find any pet to battle with and complete the quest by the trainor. The Zygor viewer couldn’t provide a clear tutorial on that either, so I had to abandon it.

We push multiple alpha versions to Curse on an average day, these versions may contain important new features or bug fixes for the bleeding edge raid content... These versions are tagged as alpha, so they will not be downloaded by default. Set your Curse client to update to alpha if you want these latest versions (but they may contain bugs, downloads tagged as "Beta" or "Release" are more stable)
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.
