No. Never. Buying leveling guides is a waste of money. Any type of information covered in Zygor is more or less found all over the internet. Leveling is so fast and streamlined now there shouldn't be a reason to use a guide. Go to the zone recommended for your level and do about 20 quests and you're already on to the next zone, outlands, northrend, and cataclysm content is so fast now you can do all 5 or 10 levels of the expansion in one or two zones.
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.
If you're in a big hurry to hit the end do these two things, run each dungeon at least once and complete the quests inside them, dungeons give HUGE amounts of experience for their quests last I knew and que for a battleground every so often. While it's not the fastest leveling, it mixes things up a bit and gives you a break from the grind, and if you're not crazy into the story it's a huge grind.
So tonight I took the plunge and thought hey let me buy a Zygor Guides subscription to see how it is. A guide backed by a subscriber base paying for a premium experience this has to be great right? I was wrong. I tested it by loading it up on the Honorboud Rep Guide. Cool it tells me to do World Quests and Island Expeditions. So far so good but hang on... What about the Wanted Quests? Those are by far the biggest boost to reputation. It did not mention them at all. So I thought that's fine it's probably because BFA is quite new. Loaded up a leveling guide on an alt. It was a complete mess. The guide was telling me to accept quests that A) would be horribly inefficient to level with and B) I already done. I also started noticing weird performance issues. Zygor was causing stuttering and FPS dips like crazy. So to close off I requested a refund and the person I spoke to did say I'll be getting one but we will see if that happens. Not getting my hopes up.
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.
People are never going to learn that sites like Zygor Guides, Dugi, and other premium site actively search out accounts that leak and share the guides and close them down thus cutting off OUR SOURCE OF CURRENT UPDATES! They use methods much like Whoknowsit did by embedding an encrypted tag somewhere with your username or account number so they can trace the leak back to the account. Just as Whoknowsit did.
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.
