WoW-Pro Leveling Addon - How the launch went


The Cataclysm launch went very well. I dinged 84 last night with my character, and I did that while:
  • Editing mistakes I saw in the leveling addon files
  • Sleeping and eating (granted, I don't sleep much) normally!
  • Only took the morning off on tuesday, which means I almost did normal work hours since the release and still managed to hit level 84 last night around midnight in Uldum while taking notes and updating the leveling guides as I went.
This just shows how good our leveling addon is! It allows for such fast leveling, without ever having any downtime being stuck on a quest. I'll hit level 85 tonight easily, while taking notes to update the Twilight Highlands guide ;)

And it keeps getting better, as our team of guide writers and testers go through our guides several times, we spot mistakes or things that could be optimized, and we improve them!

Cataclysm is out since only 3 days, and we already got tons of updates, which will be implemented in the next Addon Update (coming soon!).

Meanwhile, if you can't wait and want the latest versions, I've uploaded the new Uldum file, which I just re-optimized myself. It should be near perfect now:

And of course, our Uldum Leveling Guide gets you the following zone achievements:



About addon leveling speed: I honestly don't think there can be a faster way to level up. I was level 82 in about 7 hours of /play after the launch, and that's with:

  • A very poorly equipped character which I hadn't played since he hit level 80 back then in WotLK!
  • All the overcrowding and fighting over the same NPCs with other players. I even lost 20 minutes on a certain quest in Mount Hyjal, it was hell.
  • I was taking notes as I went! Wasting time alt-tabbing between the game and my notepad.
So just imagine the kind of leveling speed you can get without all those hinderances ;)

All in all, I'm extremely happy and impressed with the our Leveling Addon, and I can't wait to do a speed run with a new character once it's all finished.

I'll post my results of course once I'm there, so stay tuned (list of our feeds, twitter, facebook, newsletter, etc) for more leveling guides and addon updates!

Duck Hunt - Behind the scenes!

If like me, you were lucky enough to have a NES when you were a kid:



And if you were also lucky enough to play Duck Hunt, with the awesome Nintendo Zapper!


Then you might remember how you cheated sometimes and held the gun point directly against the screen to shoot the poor ducks, right? ;)

And you also remember how the more ducks you shot, the faster they flew around on the screen!

Well, finally, here's the explanation!






ps: More Cataclysm Leveling Guide news soon!

Cataclysm Leveling Addon project coming along nicely!


For those who haven't heard of our Cataclysm Leveling Guide project yet, here is a short summary:

  • Our aim is to have a full 1-85 Leveling Guide by the time the Cataclysm expansion pack ships.
  • Not only will have have the usual paper version of the 1-85 Leveling Guide, but we also plan to have it available as an in game 1-85 Leveling Addon, covering all zones.
  • This includes a full revamp of all the old Azeroth leveling guides.
To that effect, we've been working on our very own leveling addon, with Jiyambi leading the wow pro leveling addon development. She's been making big progress with the leveling addon, which is already in a stable version.

For a list of all the current and upcoming features which will be integrated in the addon, please visit our official wow pro leveling addon page.

So far, the support from the community has been great and I'm confident we'll have the best set of leveling guides and leveling addons by the time Cataclysm is launched.

If you want to test the addon and help with improving it, you can get the latest version here.

Stay tuned until then if you don't want to miss on this huge project! Follow me on twitter if you want to be informed instantly whenever we have news to share.
