The home page for the guide says that using it is like having a leveling guru giving you constant advice. Having used the guide for a quite some time now I’d say that’s pretty accurate. You’ll always know what to do and where to go next, automatically. Remember all those questions in the in-game trade chat, asking what to do or where to go next (for whatever level?) It won’t be you asking those questions.
World of Warcraft has been around for a really long time now. While the gameplay, graphics, and story have enhanced over time, the UI has not changed nearly as much. Some things that may seem like they should be obvious menu items are only accessible via addons. Addons in World of Warcraft are essentially mods that give you additional menu options and visuals. Some are small, and mostly used for organizing items or menus, while others will give you more options in combat! Below are some of the best addons for both old and new players. The majority of these can be downloaded through Curse.
For those of you who don't know: XML stands for "eXtensible Markup Language" and is a means of tagging content with identifiers. What identifiers (from here on called "tags") exist and how they're organized can be defined in something called an "XML Schema". In our case, we want to create XML documents that WoW will understand, so we will use the XML Schema provided by Blizzard for the Wow User Interface.

"UI Elements", or "Widgets", are all of the tiny bits of graphics that make up the User Interface. WoW uses XML to layout everything that you see on the screen. Additionally, when things happen (called "events", remember?) to the widgets on the screen, event handlers (i.e. functions) can be called to perform whatever action you want. We will see shortly how we tell WoW which widgets we are interested in and which events we want to be handled by which event handler.

As you can see, both of the guides contain quite the same features. The only exceptions being Dugi Guides does NOT have Gold Guide but it is a slightly cheaper choice. Also when using Dugi Guides, you can choose the difficulty level for the guide; If you want to level up at a faster rate but with higher difficulty, it is an option with Dugi Guides but Zygor Guides does not offer this and instead you will be forced to manually choose higher level guides if you want to skip the guide recommendation.
A stable for any healer. While not every healer uses this, those that do swear by it. It allows you to set spell combinations so that every ability you use is at its optimal effect. Healers have a large range of buffs and healing abilities, and Healbot lets you use the best ones you need when you need to. It’s a great organizing tool for any healer. 

Kill NPC – A “kill” line represents one of the many types of quest objectives you will come across. This line essentially tells you to kill a certain named type of mob. Like “talk to” lines, the mob in question will show up in the Model Viewer which makes it really easy to know what you need to kill. Sometimes these lines will require you to kill a certain numerical amount of the mob, in which case the number will be displayed and will dynamically update as you kill each mob to show you how many you have remaining. 

I'd rather not have to manually re-do all the settings for all my addons in-game unless it's absolutely necessary (since I don't have memorized what the exact settings are I use, so I'd have to take screenshots of them all and then remake the settings to match the screenshots). So I'd rather get some more input about this problem before I try troubleshooting it that way.

There are times when you will be fighting things a couple of levels higher than your character. This is easy enough for some, but others might find that they need to be a bit more careful. If you let yourself get a couple of levels ahead of the guide then this ceases to be an issue. If you look through the configuration options you’ll see a place to set your difficulty rating.
