TourGuide  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

by: Tekkub [More]

TourGuide is an interactive leveling guide addon. It is designed to provide the user with a streamlined order of quest completion with smart detection. It is also designed for easy creation of "guides" for users with little-to-no programming knowledge.


  • Automatic detection of objective completion
    • Detect quest accept, completion and turnin
    • Detect travel (by foot, flight, boat and stone)
    • Detection of flight point discovery
    • Detection of Hearth point change
    • Conditionals based on player's class and item possession (only tell the player to accept the quest if they have the item that starts the quest)
  • Small "lego block" style frame shows current objective, detailed tooltips on hover
  • "Use item" frame, for those annoying quests where you have to use an item on a mob before you kill it, or you have to equip something, or you have to use an item to start a quest
  • Pop out frame for detailed view of quest sequence
  • Automatic mapping of coordinates with TomTom and questgiver locations from LightHeaded if installed
  • LDB data feed, for those that would rather use a LDB display than the built in "lego"

Level ranges on the guides are general guidelines only, mainly designed to help you find what guide you should start with for your current level.

TourGuide will use the built-in quest objective map coordinates in most cases. If you find this is not adequate and you are lost, can check with LightHeaded or Wowhead and submit a bug so notes can be added to the objective.

If you wish to use the "use item" frame from a keybind or your actionbar, make a macro: /click TourGuideItemFrame

How to create (or edit) guides

TourGuide data files are fairly simple to create. The simplest method is to copy an existing file and edit it how you want. Please read How to edit TourGuide guides for help on the format and general guidelines. I ask that all submissions follow these guidelines, to present a consistent format to the user. I welcome all submissions, but reserve the right to edit them as I see fit, or reject ones that infringe upon other copyrighted guides.

See this page for details on how to fork my github repo to push your changes.

Making TourGuide work with WoW 5.x

Even though many of the lower level quests don't match with Tour Guide anymore, I still found the Crusade and Lich ones to work well. Here is what I did to make TourGuide work with WoW 5.x.

Change line 1 to "## Interface: 50001"

Comment out lines 107 through 116 with "--"

That seemed to get it all working again.

Does anyone have any tips for tracking the hallows-end candy bucket quest run properly? I can't seem to make TourGuide detect the actual candy buckets, and nothing shows up in TG Recorder at all for them.

The two work-arounds I've come up with so far:

R The Sepulcher Candy Bucket |N|Candy Bucket (46.4,42.9)| |Z|Silverpine Forest|
That takes you to the exact position of candy bucket, but obviously doesn't auto-trigger.

R The Sepulcher |N|Candy Bucket (46.4,42.9)| |Z|Silverpine Forest|
Auto triggers based on area (usually), but doesn't lead you right to the bucket (I know, there's a big "!" on the map, but still).

I found and fixed a minor but annoying bug. The issue was that the status frame would sometimes have 0 width until you reloaded the UI, and the width no longer changed when the quest changed. It was caused by using GetWidth on FontStrings in StatusFrame.lua. If you use GetStringWidth instead, everything seems to work as intended.

I can give you a patch if you want, but it's really just as simple as replacing all instances of text:GetWidth() with text:GetStringWidth() in StatusFrame.lua.

Long time Tourguide user and contributer.
Actually Tek took the addon back at some point but. and made it avalable to the public agine hes updated the recorder. but it doesnt look like hes done anything with Tourguide itself "Though last I Knew the code worked in beta"
With all his other addons my guess simply is Tek was intrested in redoing all the zones over" buts thats just conjecture on my part.

Wow-pro was acually one that as far as I knew Tek had approved of becuase they offered the guide at curese and here as a free (tourguide) downoad

There Wow-pro addon wasn't started or created untill the fiasco of the paid Leveling guide wars that the october Article refers to.

To fill a gap and need for to continueing to offer a free guide alternitive.
Hope some of that helps some.

I'm sure Tekkub is working feverishly to document and code the new questing routes for his addon. I've used it ever since I started my second character some 2 years ago, and this is an addon I know a lot of people would love to carry into Cataclysm.

In the meantime, Jiyambi and the crew over at WoW-Pro have an addon with TourGuide functionality for the newly-shattered Azeroth. It also interacts similarly with LightHeaded and TomTom, much like TourGuide. While I sincerely hope TG gets an update before Dec 7 (and my favorite addon of all time), you can try their addon at the link below:

PS: The internet gods don't smile upon promoting something not hosted on their site, so I wouldn't be surprised if this post is pulled. Bookmark the link if you're even remotely interested. I also ask that Tekkub take a glance at the code for the WoW Pro addon's guides and see if there's anything useful in there.

Edited: The internet gods sure don't like this but yet you still did it knowing this hrmm. Anyway link edited. well err removed. Please don't do it again

From what I've seen of the recorded data for TG guides, including beta and the shattering, I'd say no.

Storm Peaks?

The latest version seems to be missing the guide for Storm Peaks.
I think it was there in the last release (because I was using it).

There is a Storm Peaks files for Alliance, but not Horde in this release.

Do you have Windows7?
If so, try to start WoW as administrator.

I had the problem, too - no changes of my addons were saved, 'cause WoW wasn't allowed to "write" data. As soon as I started WoW as administrator everything worked again.

Maybe it will help.

Try using the UI scale setting in your video settings.
