Wow-Pro: A World of Warcraft addon review

16 12 2010

As is the case with every expansion release, everyone is leveling characters up. Maybe you’re like me and leveling a new character (probably Goblin or Worgen) from 1 to 85, or maybe you’re just getting your main up to 85 for endgame raiding. Either way, almost everyone is doing at least SOME questing at this point in the game, whether its dailies for reputation, for leveling purposes, or for other reasons. So I thought I would review an addon that I use which really helps with my questing and leveling. That addon is Wow-Pro.

Wow-Pro will greatly suit anyone who is looking to better their questing experience in Azeroth .  Whether you are leveling an alt, going for the Loremaster achievement, looking to make some extra gold through questing, or leveling your main to 85, Wow-Pro will make your questing experience more efficient, more productive, and most importantly, more enjoyable.

There are numerous addons that are designed to make your questing experience more productive, more efficient, and more fun (questhelper, lightheaded, cartographer, etc).  And although these addons can be helpful, all of them that I have used have had their fair share of drawbacks.  Almost all of them are huge memory hogs, they feel very clunky to use in general, and are not very user friendly.  WoW-Pro is better than all of these addons in nearly every way.

WoW-Pro takes almost all of the quests in a single zone and lays them out for you so that you do as little backtracking as possible.  It is used in conjunction with TomTom, so that as soon as you complete a quest, a waypoint is added to your map at the location of the questgiver.  Once handing the quest in, a new waypoint is added at the location of the next quest objective.  It is almost like turning an entire zone worth of quests into one huge quest.

By utilizing Wow-Pro, you will level at a pace incredibly faster than with any other leveling addon, and with zero extra effort.  There is less time spent alt+tabbed and studying quest text, and more time spent actually getting XP and level gains.  It even tells you where to set your Hearthstone in order to minimize travel times.

There are almost no drawbacks to this addon.  If I had to come up with one, it would be that it limits travel a bit due to having to set your hearthstone to the inn corresponding with the guide.

Simply put, Wow-Pro is the cream of the crop when it comes to questing assistance.  I know, Blizzard has introduced their own questing guides, which can be helpful at times.  But in no way does it stack up to the features, benefits, and pure awesomeness that is Wow-Pro.  If you want to level faster, more efficiently, and have more fun doing it, then I highly suggest trying it out.  If you want more information on the addon and what it has to offer, then check out their website.  Theres a great informational video that you will find helpful.
