So far it seems like the guides direct you to the easiest/best way to get stuff done. The waypoints they use are better than some other places because it tells you how to get to a certain place rather than saying "Go to X place" it says "Go out of the building and down the path" then once you do those things it says "Go kill X mob Y mob and Z mob until you have A items". It has given some pointers too for an area it was like "If you kill a lava thing it gives you a buff so you can walk on the lava" so it tells you to kill some lava things (JC quest in WoD)
Level your hero. You need to start leveling him from the moment you have 2-3 units. This isn’t necessary. If you have KotG, DH, BM, FS, or AM you don’t even have to wait for units. However, with the help of units, your hero can very easily overcome creeps. Among players there is a certain understanding – creeping. Creeping is the destruction of neutral units in order to gain experience. If you kill a creep you earn gold. A gold number and a plus sign will appear on the screen. Sometimes, you need to kill them in order to earn more gold for building purposes.
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.
