[content_box_green width=”75%”]Critical issues fixed and the new UI update is now available with the latest update (6.703) [/content_box_green]



In this latest update we rebuilt the large frame window to a brand new setup. Our goal is to make guide selection and viewing easier while improving the overall look.

List of changes:

Wider Large Frame

  • For visual and functionality reason we made the large frame wider. The side guide selection tabs and bottom left corner tabs was removed to get a clean square window.

New Home Tab

  • On the top left corner there is a “Home” tab which will display all the available guide types on the left hand sides.

Improved Suggest Guides button

  • Available in the Home tab, the new suggest button will now suggest more guides from Dailies, Events, Professions depending on your character’s level, reputation, current events based on the in-game calendar. This feature is not 100% finished and will be improved to suggest more guides with upcoming updates.

Improved Search Guide 

  • Search Guide now available as default in the home tab and will display the result in the right hand side of the home tab. Type your subject to begin the guide search.

Improved Current Guide tab

  • Current guide tab now display the guide type selection on the left hand side to make it easier to switch or browse different guides.

Settings Tab Changes

  • The setting tab is available as a gear icon button to the right of current guide tab.

Record Tab Changes

  • The record tab has been removed for now as it was not very popular among users. You can access it again later by using the command /dgr  (not working yet)

 Special Note: The new default border is ElvUI , you can change the borders back to the old style by going to the Settings > Borders options.

Ok that is it! (for now..)

I hope you enjoy the new UI and I look forward to hear your feedback.

      hey dugi… just created a death knight i have the dugi guides viewer editon does that include the leveling if it does then why does it not suggest my quests… or if it doesnt let me know so i can download it thanks.

      • Dugi

        Make sure you have the correct guide loaded, eg if you started the DK then you should load the Death Knight Starting zone guide.

      The mining guide use to work and take me to each node in Durotar. Now when it takes me there are no nodes. Ive done this several times to all nodes it led me to and there wasn’t one there. Please update or revert to older guide that worked

      • Dugi

        nodes are not guaranteed, if someone else already mined the node then you have to wait until it spawn or move on. You simply have more competition than before.

    • Isaac Ferenhof

      Dugi please tell me where are the threasures of Timeless Island. The boxes…the locations.
      Thanking in advace for your kind help.

      • Dugi

        this is covered in the Timeless Isle (Daily) guide

    • wazz00

      Thank you Dugi. Can you place a button to delete old and unnecessary quests when we select a new leveling guide.

      For example I have 1-10 Durotar Quests but I just selected 10-20 Northern Barrens quest line, now I have to manually delete those Durotar quests.

      Having issues with the new UI randomly partially appearing in the middle of my screen. It does this without me clicking on my Dugi button to bring it up and will not go away when I click my Dugi button. It will show the Home page list of things, but no frame, and no right side list of options. I can move it around, but it will not go away without reloading a couple of times. It appears to be related to when I pet battle (which turns dugi off temporarily) and zone in and out of dungeons. There also appears to be quite a bit of lag (the screen will lock up for a couple of seconds) when I loot quest items that I don’t experience with Dugi turned off.

      I use ElvUI Shadow & Light as my main UI, so I don’t know if it is a conflict with their interface, but I’ve never had issues until the recent update of Dugi.

      Just thought I’d give you a heads up in case it’s something that needs tweaking on your end. Will keep checking for updates from you and ElvUI.

      • Dugi

        @Saidae Jenkins, thank you for the report. I’ll do some testing soon and try to replicate the bug.

    • powergo

      I think you need to test it again, sending to mission goal without accepting the quest so that wasting time not for fast leveling.
      Only update work fine with me.

    • Wael Isa

      DG icon gone after update only arrow, how to enable it again?

      • Dugi

        @Wael Isa, try typing /dugi reset

    • Bobbie

      I can’t get the guide to work I just paid for so what do I do now help plz…..

    • Robert

      Hi Dugi,

      I really enjoy your guides. One question the equipment manage keeps telling me to replace lower ilvl gear also at times it wants to replace an epic item ilvl 535 with a green. How exact is this equipment manager what does it look for.

      • Dugi

        I think this a problem with new items in the game, sometime new items return 0 stats value. We don’t know how to replicate this issue so we can’t really fix it yet. Try deleting your cache folder, this might help.

    • Vill

      When I open the guide to select Dailys etc, I can find no option to close it, there was an x on the previous version. Now i have to click the DG icon 3 times. Am I missing something??

      • Francis

        @Vill, You can either right click on the small frame to close it or press ESC

    • Dugi

      Critical issues fixed and the new UI update is now available with the latest update (6.703), please update again.

      • netsage

        @Dugi, Working! And, it looks like a great update now :D. Great job as always.

    • Kiwicouple

      Before coming here I was scratching my head wondering why my brand new update looked exactly the same as the old one. LOL

    • Dugi

      The addon has been reverted back to the older version temporarily because of critical issue with users that has partial guides installed. We will release this update again as soon as we can, I’m sorry for the inconvenience.

    • grhuff

      I’m getting this error and my Dugi window is essentially empty.

          Still no go, tried that with addon’s on back on and got a LUA error again, like 4 pages of stuff. Disabled all addons except Dugi and tried /dugi fix again and logged out. Shut down WoW and fired it up again. Again same error blank home/current and settings buttons. If I turn off/on Dugi with clicking button I can get it to show old settings screen but that is about it.

      Love it!!! Keep up the awesome job!

    • Martin Humble

      Can’t get it to work, used the installer as normal then fired up wow.
      Right click to look at settings and click current guide:

      I get the below: Click the Home tab and I get more LUA error messages.
      I have removed my original Dugi install and tried fresh install getting same issues.

      • Martin Humble

        @Martin Humble, after I get above error nothing works to get guide back. reset or reload do nothing and home, current guide and settings button don’t do anything when clicked. They are just blank windows.

        • grhuff

          @Martin Humble, I’m having the same issue and can’t resolve it.

          • CrazyHammer

            @grhuff, Still no resolution for this issue. I’ve tried everything.

            Dugi you seeing this? Please let us know your thoughts.

      • Dugi

        Try typing /dugi fix and logout.

    • Gary Simon

      The new UI looks great but none of my guides are there. Is there something I need to do?

    • mark

      i have problem white the guild nowe i dont she my guilds anymore
      en quest

    • Hellcion

      Hi to one and all, liking the new looks, layout looks great and user friendly.
      But I have to agree with Prodexorite, I have been having the same issue with with the gear advisor .. have items it recommends in slot, then when I add an item to the ban list or even select that I am happy with the item in slot .. within a minute or so it starts the loop of suggesting to change item, even like Prod, I add the item into the ban list it still goes through the “you should change item over”.
      Have also found that regardless of what spec I set aswell in the gear advisor for my player, it will look at upgrading an item with stats that are no benefit to that player, for example Agility and Strength items for my Elemental Shaman (when Int/Stam/Spirit are the go to stats) or for my Warrior it suggests Intellect and so on.
      Hope it can be looked into as is a good addition to the guide suite. Cheers 🙂

      • Dugi

        @Hellcion, can you post some screenshots in the forum.

    • prodexorite

      Nice, looking good and clear! 🙂 Did you manage to fix the equip manager yet? For me, even if I add an item to a ban list, it still keeps prompting the change to that item each time I loot something like quest items or such that make the Dugi’s addon kind of refresh itself… I’ve disabled the gear suggesting for now as it was totally annoying. Fixed or going to be fixed? 🙂

      • Dugi

        @prodexorite, Gear Advisor is not broken as far as we can tell, the ban list should work. Are you sure its not a different item that it’s suggesting?

        • prodexorite

          @Dugi, yeah I’m sure of that. It happened to my Rogue all the time I was leveling. It suggested me to change a fist weapon from my secondary hand to my primary because the stats were better, obviously it would suggest it, even that my specializion was set to subtlety. I added both weapons to the ban list but it didn’t work. Every single time I looted some quest item or something, it suggested me to change them again and again :/

          • Dugi

            @prodexorite, there is an exception from the ban list for equipped item ie if the item is equipped then its considered not banned. This was done because it’s the preferred behaviour and better for the calculations.

            There should be a good reason as to why it wants you to swap the weapon as it can make a big difference to your DPS. Post a screenshot in the forum so I can review it.

            • prodexorite

              @Dugi, Well I think on Rogue it’s pretty bad if it suggests using a fist weapon as primary when playing on a build that has powerful skills that require dagger to be wield in main hand. I suggest to make some exception to that, at least for a rogue because of that. Just an idea for improvement 🙂

          • Dugi

            @prodexorite, it depends on the damage per hit, just because it’s daggers it doesn’t mean its better. Dagger is not required for subtlety. I had this same discussion with another customer before, and the gear advisor was correct. If you could post a screenshot on the forum it would help our discussion.

            • prodexorite

              @Dugi, Ummm… I don’t think you can do backstab with anything else but dagger worn in your main hand. And it’s basically the most powerful basic attack that you can do outside of stealth with that build. Also the Assassination specced Rogue needs a dagger on it’s main hand in order to use Assassin’s Resolve which highly increases the damage and adds 20 energy. Same goes for Mutilate. Combat rogue is the only spec that doesn’t require a dagger on it’s main hand in order to use all the useful skills.

          • Dugi

            @prodexorite, Assassin spec is already set to daggers only, but subtlety is different. What if your hemo (with the fist weapon) does the same or more damage as your backstab? would you still backstab?

            This is really off-topic from the blog post, please continue with a thread on a forum and please post a screenshot to help this discussion.
