WoW Daily Guide Helps Bring in the Gold

Updated on February 24, 2014

Okay, I admit it. I've been playing World of Warcraft since the Burning Crusade expansion back in early 2007. Not something that I broadcast too frequently among my friends and family. I didn't want to hear them express shock that someone my age would be playing such a game. I kind of came to the conclusion to keep it under wraps because the last time I told a co-worker about WoW she just kind of stared at me glaze-eyed and tight-lipped. Gave me the feeling she was thinking "oh, you're one of those people!"

So I guess you could say I'm pretty comfortable with most aspects of the game. That's why, when a friend of mine told me about a new dailies and events guide he'd been using to create a lot of gold for his characters, I was pretty surprised! I have five level 80 characters: a paladin, rogue, mage, priest and death knight. Although I don't consider myself an expert, I believe I play them quite well or at least enjoy playing them in any case. I've heard of these type of guides before. I never looked at them because I thought they were some sort of gimmick or even an easy way for those who want to cheat to bypass everyone while the rest of us "honest folk" work very hard to level, earn gold and epic equipment.

Do I Really Need a Guide?

So I thought about it for a while, looked at my friend's results and reviewed my strategy on dailies and earning more gold. Or really I should say lack of strategy as I've never really steadily focused on completing every daily or really finishing all the factions to gain reputation and equipment. I mean I made it to 80 and that always seemed enough for me. I thought I had crossed the finish line at 80 so to speak.

Then I also started to look at all the other 80s when I was in dungeon groups or raids. They always seem to have so much money, way better gear, mounts and weapons. I always get the feeling that there's some secret out there. Something I'm missing that keeps me right around the 2,000 to 3,000 gold mark. I mean you can only make so many leather goods or cloth items or potions and so on.

Farming for all the materials can be such a chore as well, and I can't imagine that everyone I'm seeing is grinding all day and then playing dungeons and raiding all night. Well okay. On second thought, I guess there are those kids and college students online. They don't have to worry about paying bills, keeping up a house, being a mom, making sure the kids do their homework, feeding everyone, shopping and also try to make a living to boot! I could go on about the joys and chores of motherhood, but that really is a subject of another hub!

Also when considering newbie players or those who just like me enjoy the game but don't take it quite so seriously as hard core gamers, I thought I really should take a look at the guide just to see what it's all about.

So I Took the Plunge

I finally decided to go ahead and purchase the guide my friend suggested, the Zygor's Dailies and Events Guide. While it wasn’t the cheapest out there, it seemed to have the most features. The one thing I really like about this particular guide is that it has an in-game guide interface that walks you through everything while playing the game. It is kind of like Curse’s QuestHelper on steroids!

It's Such a Grind

If you're a World of Warcraft player, you know that it can take quite a long time to complete dailies. However, with the Zygor in-game guide, I’m able to complete dailies faster than ever before. I finally have a direction and no longer wander aimlessly or allow myself to be distracted. I can actually use what little time I have for playing to the fullest advantage.

Unbelievably, my paladin is now fully equipped and we're steadily racing to finish and obtain the coveted Crusader title on top it....all much faster than I ever thought was really possible. Now I'll definitely be working on my other level 80s to get them to the same place.


Is a Dailies Guide Right for You?

Since 2006 Zygor Guides has been providing superior gaming guides for World of Warcraft gamers. Their guides are all custom-made, in game interfaces that help you quest and level easily. I'm so glad I got a copy of Zygor's guide, and now I use it every day. I didn't want to give up playing World of Warcraft, but it can certainly be a drain on your time. This guide has helped me make the most of my gaming experience.

If you want to maximize your WoW time, complete dailies faster than ever before, earn your equipment and Crusader title quickly, a dailies guide will be a great investment for you.

Also, I have to admit that I even purchased an additional guide, which was the WoW leveling guide from 1 to 80 with a free update once WoW Cataclysm releases. Thought I'd try it out on a new character and see how quickly leveling with a Zygor guide will be from the very beginning. Also thought it would be great in preparation for the WoW Cataclysm release and new profession, wow archaeology. I can’t wait to try my hand at a little digging for artifacts! I'll keep you posted on my results.

      Thanks for stopping by Lilleyth. I think it credible that you and your family play together. My father-in-law, 60-something, also plays with me, my sons and husband as well. My mains are on Bladefist - Navah, Gracia and Ariellah. I don't play as often as I have in the past, but look forward to the Mist of Panderia expansion coming soon. In fact, we were invited to the beta and are enjoying playing Pandas.

      I've seen that guide, but just use Thottbot or Wowwiki when I need help. WOW is my escape and I'm a 60ish little old lady who has several 85 toons. I started playing with my daughter and her boyfriend, his 55-year-old mother, brother and sister a couple years ago and I'm hooked. I mean, can 10 million people who play WOW all be 20-somethings? Thanks for coming out of the closet. I'm on Ravenholdt btw...horde and ally toons...Tabethaa, Rowynne, Ursia, Suzzette...and just this week I started the most delightful: Jackiebgood, a goblin rogue.

      Questhelper was really nice but it seemed to glitch the game up a bit at times. It was also very resource heavy. I'm kinda annoyed that Cata doesn't have an easier system for questing since most people really don't like to grind. Wowhead and wowwiki are also really good sites for quest info. Mmochampion is a great site for update and patch info.

      @Monarch, I've never really used throtbot. I always have used questhelper until I found the Zygor guide. It seems to be working really well! Thanks for stopping by!

      @sueroy333, thanks for visiting! I've actually learned that there are a lot more 30 and 40 something's playing than I realized. Even my father-in-law who is 60 something enjoys playing...of course, he does it so he can voice chat with his grandkids at the same time! :)

      So not happy that thotbot.com is down. It was the best place for quick quest info for wow

      I came across this and have to send it to a friend of mine who, at age 44, is totally into Warcraft.

      I thought I'd throw his age in there so you wouldn't feel alone on an island of not-twenties playing the game! :)

      Thanks for writing this. I think he'll like it a lot!!
