The best part about the guides, though, is that you won't be sidetracked by various other quests. For example, if you're a dwarf questing through Eastern Kingdoms & get that random quest that takes you to Feralas, Zygor will keep you on track by putting that Feralas quest on the back burner while you keep chugging through the main storyline in Eastern Kingdoms.
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.
Disable alpha versions in your Curse client if you do not want multiple updates per day. Make sure you check main download preference as well as DBM's individual download preference. You could have primary method set to release and dbm still set to alpha. Right click on DBM itself in curse client addon list and set it to release/beta to avoid the daily updates.
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.
