Patch Notes – Recent Updates November 9th

Hello everyone!

We have a very large update today for Classic guides, and some news about Retail guides.

This is both an addon and a guide update, so please update your addon and redownload then reimport any guides.

Addon Version: 4.3.22
Guide Version: 12

Dragonflight Guides

The Dragonflight guides are entering the final testing phases. We’ll be working up to the final hour to make sure you guys have the best guide you can for prepatch and for launch.

The current release plan is as follows:

1-60 will be released for download on November 14th, the night before Prepatch Part 2 drops to give everyone time to pre-download and pre-import their guide.

60-70 will be released later on November 27th to give us more time to polish these guides while they aren’t in use. Similarly giving everyone a day to pre-import and resolve any issues.

The exact time of these releases is up in the air, as we will be trying to pack as many final touches as we can onto the guides. We will be aiming for our downloads to be available 24 hours~ prior to the launch however.

If you have pre-ordered 1-70 Dragonflight package, your prep guide is available to view here. We will be updating this guide over the next week as some things have been fixed by Blizzard. Be sure to regularly check in for any changes. Additionally we will be including a macro to auto-turn in all of your pet battle quests to speed up your launch day turn ins.

Wotlk Guides

We have fixed over a thousand combined bugs, QoL changes, and heirloom routing adjustments in this update. This is one of our biggest updates ever in terms of total fixes.

The main changes:

Alliance w/ heirlooms saw the removal of some Ashenvale quests, removed Badlands entirely, and had big adjustments to the Searing Gorge/Burning Steppes section due to users getting overleveled in their late 30s/early 40s.

Horde had three zones added to their route due to the droprate changes Blizzard stealth added to the game, resulting in lowered exp gains due to less mobs killed. Horde also had a massive bug fixed that could result in certain users skipping Arathi Highlands, causing them to be behind in exp come STV/Dustwallow. There should be a lot less grind steps on horde now.

There will likely be another, smaller, update next week to finish up some smaller bugs we are working on but weren’t worth delaying this update another week for. Get the @Update Squad role from self-roles to be notified when that one is released on our Discord.

Most of the quests here are still the same and in the same order however because of this change you now do a bunch of quests in Stonetalon you didn’t before & you now do Ordanus in Ashenvale aswell.
