Before there was ingame WoW leveling guides, there was just eBook PDF leveling guides & what you paid for was the questing path. As far asWoW leveling guides have come with fancy ingame user interfaces, the questing path is still the core. Both WoW guides spend endless hours researching their questing path to find the fastest way to reach lvl cap. It is pretty hard to deem one faster than the other as both produce extremely fast lvling times. The reason I wanted to touch on this area is to confirm that both are really well planned and have seemingly very little difference.
Functionality is the heart of these guides, what you are really paying for. There are a lot of aspects I could look at with regards to functionality such as; questing path; quest progression; addon user interface; bugs; performance and many more. All that we are concerned with are questing path (speed) & user interface. All the other aspects aren’t worth comparing as both wow guides are light in terms of system usage, both have very few bugs, and both update your quest progress in real time.
If you just want the short version of this review, Zygor Guides are the best WoW leveling guides. Period. They’ve been around since 2007, and are always kept up to date and improved, and they have tons of features that set them apart from the competition, not to mention a streamlined leveling path and slick user interface. It’s no wonder that they’re the #1 best-selling WoW guides, because they’re simply the highest quality. Updates are typically released in advance of major patches and expansions.
You’ll get a small window inside the game with instructions for what you need to do next, every step of the way to 120. You’ll also get a waypoint arrow that points you in the right direction to go at all times. If this sounds extremely convenient, you’re right! Zygor’s leveling guide/addon has completely taken the frustration out of leveling for me, personally. No more reading comments on WoWHead about how to complete quests. No more getting stuck, frustrated and bored with leveling. And no more feeling like WoW takes too much effort.
Anyway, there are no more shortcuts. There are no more "Tricks". It's just straight questing now since Blizzard nerfed other methods of leveling. You can still do dungeon spam, it just won't be as fast. You can still do BGs, it just won't be as fast. Just about the only alternative way to level that rivals questing is Pet Battles(which makes ZERO sense).
