Pick a simple goal or idea for your AddOn. It's often a good idea to just make an AddOn that only opens a window or prints a message to get started, especially when everything is new for you. After that works the way it should, and you have learned everything necessary to make an AddOn work at all, you can move on to adding one piece at a time toward your goals. Writting software in general is often a never ending process because you can always think of something new to add or improve.
Let's face it, World of Warcraft has an awful lot of content available, especially when it comes to end game content. Unfortunately, that can quite time consuming and not everyone can afford to spend so much time getting there. Wouldn't it be great if there was a way to skip all the grueling and time-consuming leveling process and just jump right into the end game? Thankfully, there is - WoW leveling service!
I think this may have been a case of that specific sword simply having wildly inflated secondaries. If I recall correctly, when I played during Wrath, +STR and +Hit were the stat kings for plate DPS classes (I remember all the guides recommending +STR gems in every slot and +STR enchants on everything) and secondary stats were, well, secondary, and inflated secondaries on a weapon weren't that big a deal. But now that secondary stats have so much more importance, I suspect that an "outlier" weapon like that just wreaks havoc with modern calculations, so that all the addon sees is that this particular sword offers +15 more Haste and Crit than everything else that drops.
At level 80, I skipped Cataclysm and went straight to Pandaria. Even as my warrior leveled up, and that heirloom axe increased in iLvl along with me, Dugi still ranked that iLvl 87 sword higher. I kept picking up new 2h weapons, and Dugi kept rejecting them in favor of that Wrath sword. That's when I noticed that all of these Pandaria weapon drops, even weapons 20 iLvls higher than the Wrath sword, had secondaries under 20. So even though Dugi Gear Advisor is showing that a new weapon would provide a DPS increase, it still prompts me to re-equip that Wrath sword every time I equip a new weapon. Meanwhile, I've kept the heirloom axe in my bags, assuming that at some point its stats would once again beat whatever I had equipped, but nope, it doesn't, according to Dugi.
Anyway I will go ahead & download the Twitch app like everyone's saying, but I still need to know whether my in-game addon settings will carry over automatically, or whether they'd return to default same as if they'd all been uninstalled in the curse client then reinstalled from scratch. Because if it's the latter then I will have to take screenshots of the settings on all my toons BEFORE I install the addons thru the Twitch client.
Last I wanna share a curious bug that almost freezes my game and force me to disable the addon. Anytime I add a (Citadel Crossbow [of the Fireflash]) my fps go from 75 to 22, and It's on a paladin, paladins dont even use crossbows. I noticed everytime I put something in my bags the addon takes the math and my fps goes from 75 to ~22 for a while (3 to 7 seconds) and is think it's internal and also think it's fine.
Before there was ingame WoW leveling guides, there was just eBook PDF leveling guides & what you paid for was the questing path.  As far asWoW leveling guides have come with fancy ingame user interfaces, the questing path is still the core.  Both WoW guides spend endless hours researching their questing path to find the fastest way to reach lvl cap.  It is pretty hard to deem one faster than the other as both produce extremely fast lvling times.  The reason I wanted to touch on this area is to confirm that both are really well planned and have seemingly very little difference.
 Dugi’s Guide has released their Cataclysm bonus which is an in game talent advisor.  Finally and actual bonus worth talking about; or so I thought.  Once on the inside of  Dugi’s Guide members area the truth was revealed.  The talent advisor bonus is just the 3rd party addon “Talenteds”!  Using TomTom add on for navigation is already a large negative in my books, now offering a free addons as a bonus.  Dugi, Dugi, Dugi.. – not cool.  I’m tempted to take another point away from Dugi but that would be my personal opinion.
Functionality is the heart of these guides, what you are really paying for.  There are a lot of aspects I could look at with regards to functionality such as; questing path; quest progression; addon user interface; bugs; performance and many more.  All that we are concerned with are questing path (speed) & user interface.  All the other aspects aren’t worth comparing as both wow guides are light in terms of system usage, both have very few bugs, and both update your quest progress in real time.
