README FIRST: This addon is outdated and will probably not be updated. For post-Wrath guides, look to the Wow Pro addon.
This addon is a plugin to the TourGuide module. It provides a still-growing set of guidebooks relating to Daily Quests in the Northrend area.
There are 'Part' guides, written to serve a single purpose. For example, all quests relating to the Argent Crusade reputation.
Then there are 'Loop' guides, which combine pieces of the 'Part' guides to provide for a full day's worth of questing. Also, these 'Loop' guides might be catered to serve a specific goal. For instance, there is a Loop whose aim is obtaining maximum reputation with various factions, while another Loop simply aims for maximum gold.
You will need the base TourGuide addon for this to plug into. Next, it is recommended you also have LightHeaded and either TomTom or Cartographer. These are to help with coordinates and provide waypoint arrows. While you can use guides without these tools, you will be restricting yourself tremendously.
Version-wise, this guide pack is known to work with version 220.127.116.11-Beta of TourGuide.
All planned 'Part' guides for Alliance, Horde, and Neutral factions are implemented.
Basic 'Loops' have been implemented for both Horde and Alliance side, though Horde side routes are not optimized. I would love to hear people's suggestions for daily quest Loops, as everyone has their own take on what's worthwhile to do and what not.
The Tourguide framework was not designed with rotating daily quests in mind, but for leveling quests that always remain the same.
This set of guides uses the the Tourguide syntax in manners unapproved by Tekkub. At the moment though, it is the only way to handle certain situations relating to optional quests with multiple objectives.
It is possible that these unblessed syntax variations may be patched from working at a future date. That has not happened yet, but it is a possibility to consider. Should a new revision of TourGuide break these guides, I request that please you DO NOT bother Tekkub about the matter.
As of now, this set of guides is known to operate under TourGuide version 18.104.22.168-Beta. (2009-08-25).
If you have found this guide pack to be a useful way to complete your daily quests, for that you might let Tekkub know. Though it was not a goal of the original design, perhaps if there is enough expressed interest, the TG syntax can be one day expanded to truly support rotating, multi-stepped dailies in an approved manner.
Updates to this addon are published only to wowinterface.com. If the addon is found elsewhere, it's not being put there by me, and may be obsolete. I suggest keeping up to date with this addon and others on WoWInterface by utilizing the "Minion" tool, available at http://minion.mmoui.com

A big thank-you to Tekkub for creating the TourGuide framework,
and making the data format open for others to use and roll their
own guides from.
