This is Aldgar’s Alliance leveling journal. The leveling guide I chose to use is Zygor Guides. I will be playing on the Outland server as a Human Paladin. I haven’t played WoW for more than 20 levels, and this was right after launch. I decided to play it now since there aren’t any good MMOs around. So I will start a new character with no help what so ever, just using Zygor leveling guide. I have been hearing good things about it, and I want to test it and see how fast I can level up as a newbie in the game.

Note: I am not a stranger to MMOs in general. I have played a lot of them for some years, just not World of Warcraft.

I will be trying to post my progress daily, depending on how much I’ve played and if there is something worth mentioning. I will include screen shots of my /played time and possibly some videos. I will start with saying a few words about installing.

Right after purchase, I simply logged on the website and used the details I got in my e-mail. Once I did that, I got to a screen where I could download the actual guide. On that screen, there were a lot of bonuses also. The most important one, for me at least, was the Help desk.

When I clicked on that, I found videos and instructions about everything in the guide. The installation was very easy. Right as I clicked on the “All in one installation” link, I had two choices, to use the Zygor Client or manual installation. I chose the client as I am not much of a tech guy. It’s very easy with the client as well. I clicked on it, made sure that the client detected the addon folder and the launcher accurately, used my login details and continued. I then started installing the client and the guide. It didn’t take long at all.

That’s about it for the introduction. Here I go with my Alliance leveling journal!

As I started playing, I was confused a bit at first, with Zygor Guide and all, but I got used to it really fast. The interface of the guide is really nice and doesn’t take too much of my screen. I am using a 20 inch widescreen monitor. There are a lot of options to personalize the guide interface. I didn’t get into them much, I just used a setting so that the guide will show me two steps at once.

Oh and, the directional arrow is simply awesome. You can see it in the screenshot below.

I died only two times on my first day so I suppose that isn’t half bad.
I was expecting to do a lot less levels but it seems that the leveling guide doesn’t really “allow” you to do that. As you can see in the screenshot, I managed to ding level 10 in just a little over 2 hours of /played time (The actual time I spent in game).

I have to admit, I am pretty excited to advance in the game. I have never used an in-game Alliance leveling guide in a MMO and I love the idea of it. Having the guide in-game, like Zygor guide, makes it so much more effective. Can’t wait for the next run in my Alliance leveling journal, see you around.
