Dugi’s Ultimate World Of Warcraft Guide (Dugi Guides v4) is actually a web-based collection of every kind of guide you need for WoW. Unlike leveling-specific guides like Zygor’s leveling guide (see my review of the Zygor leveling guide), Dugi covers leveling, classes, PvP, gold, and professions. They’re not weak material too, the guides that he puts out are solid, and content-packed. The reason why I would recommend Dugi’s Ultimate WoW guides is because they’re so comprehensive – you can literally get all the guides you need about WoW from here.
The good thing is that you can choose to purchase his separate guides individually, but if you get it all as a package, then you get substantial savings.
Dugi’s Ultimate World Of Warcraft Leveling Guide
Dugi’s Ultimate WoW Guide contains very detailed level 1-80 leveling guides for both horde and alliance. Dugi keeps it updated, and offers both an in-game add-on, as well as a guide that you can view online. Like Zygor’s guide, Dugi also provides an in-game “talent advisor” that advises you onhow to spend your talents while leveling up.
Dugi includes loot lists for all classes, from level 1-80. These loot lists even includes battlegrounds, class quests, and reputations. I found this very important, because you’ll always be wanting to find the best gear for your characters.
I’d say Dugi’s leveling guide is pretty complete, save for the fact that there’s no gameplay strategies that show you how to play your character in solo, PvP, instances and so on. That’s not that major though, and overall, this makes for a great leveling guide.
Dugi’s Ultimate World Of Warcraft Gold Farming / Auction House & Profession Guide
This part of the Dugi Ultimate WoW guide basically gives you information about your finances. There’s a gold guide, an auction house guide, and a profession leveling guide.
The gold farming guide has a lot of strategies for a variety of level ranges, so everyone can benefit from this guide. Most of the gold gathering strategies are centered around grinding, and gathering professions. There’re also the auction house videos that show you how to find good deals to turn a profit on. These are auction house strategies that work, and only require about half an hour each day. You can potentially get hundreds to thousands of gold this way.
The professions guide teach you how to choose your profession and how to skill-up quickly and cheaply (most of the guides are for 1-450), with the occasional tip here and there. Since you’ll have 5 professions (2 primary professions and first aid, cooking and fishing), a good professional guide will definitely save you a lot of time. It’s especially useful when you want to change professions, and saves you tons of time. All professions are covered in this guide, including first aid, cooking, fishing, inscription, lock picking and so on. The guides lists everything you need to make or gather, where you can get recipes for it and the order you should make them in, and what mats you’ll need. Separate guides for horde and alliance are given also, for areas like skinning and herbalism. This is a very comprehensive guide in itself, and some people are charging what Dugi charges for the complete package for just their professions and gold guide alone.
WoW is such a huge game that has so many different aspects that a good overall guide is needed – Dugi’s Ultimate WoW Guide fills this need and gives you good resources across leveling, gold, PvP, and reputation, and so on, and if you get the entire package, it’s a very heavily discounted price. In addition, I also like how the Dugi guides are kept up-to-date. They’ve managed to evolve from a written step-by-step PDF guide, to an easy-to-read in-game guide, to a sophisticated fully-automatic guide in the current 4th generation of the leveling guide (called Dugi’s Guide V4).
