So, how do you tell World of Warcraft that you are interested in a particular event? There are two ways: First, you can tell WoW which piece of code to run when a particular event happens. This is called registering your event. Second, you can tell the XML to run a piece of code when a UI Element is manipulated (such as clicking on it or moving your mouse over it). These pieces of code that run in response to events are called "functions" (or more precisly "event handlers").
A text editor is used to edit plain text files (hence the name). They need to be distinguished from word processors. Word processors allow text formatting (such as making text bold or italics). Thus they don't save plain text files but document files instead. On Windows, "Notepad" is a (very limited) text editor, whereas "Wordpad" and especially "Microsoft Word" are word-processor. You may use "Notepad", but you can't use "Wordpad" or "Microsoft Word".
Inside the frame, one of the many things we can define are Scripts. Scripts are nothing more than small pieces of Lua code. Where we place the script determines when it will be invoked. Because Scripts live within a Frame we include the 'Scripts' tag inside the 'Frame' tag. Notice the difference, in the 'Scripts' tag, the 's' sets it apart from the 'Script' tag.
Code cleanup - anyone working on the code please take note that I've cleaned up a LOT involving the code frames. They have changed significantly so please check them if you are working on something. In particular, I've completely revamped the way sticky frames are handled. Ask me if you need help with this. NOTE: This is all internal code, people writing guide files shouldn't notice anything!
If you are looking for some solid information on fast leveling in wow and you want to plunk down the dollars, you should take a look at Zygor Guide. One of the first great features you notice is that this guide is available for both Alliance and Horde while other guides are horde or alliance only. That's why Zygor Guide sets itself apart from the crowd. The absolute best part of the guide is the map add-on. Once you have loaded up the mapmod, it makes it very easy to follow along with Zygor Guides in a step-by-step fashion. You won't need to press alt+tab aveytime you need to find your next step or coordinate. Everything is inside your game.

The leveling path was built around using a Hunter character and run by a player who knew how to use that character well. For the average player running, for example, a Paladin, the guides could be frustrating in spots, due to the level of the mobs. I played through Joana’s Guide with a Rogue (all the way from 1-70) and was able to deal with most everything, except for a few elites and I skipped most all of the group quests.


It’s easy for the new player to follow and efficient enough for the experienced player to want to use it. That’s a tough act, but John pulls it off nicely and his Zygor’s Guide rocks. Of course, one can argue that it makes the game too easy, but I’m not one of them. Want to make it a bit more difficult? Don’t worry so much about your gear and send those heirlooms to your other alt. Heck, try it naked. 😉
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.

Level your hero. You need to start leveling him from the moment you have 2-3 units. This isn’t necessary. If you have KotG, DH, BM, FS, or AM you don’t even have to wait for units. However, with the help of units, your hero can very easily overcome creeps. Among players there is a certain understanding – creeping. Creeping is the destruction of neutral units in order to gain experience. If you kill a creep you earn gold. A gold number and a plus sign will appear on the screen. Sometimes, you need to kill them in order to earn more gold for building purposes.
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.
