Update: NOT Recommended
I wouldn't recommend getting Zygor guides. Many people plus myself report that their WoW account got banned just weeks after using the Zygor leveling guide. I understand many people use Zygor with success, but there is likely a higher risk of ban than you think. Please check the comment section at the bottom of the page for many reviews from people who got banned by Blizzard. If you've been banned and just discovered this page please go ahead and share your experience in the comment section.
The good news
I got banned after one month of use. So I would not recommend Zygor guides. Instead, I have used the Ultimate WoW Guide to level 6 toons to 120 in just 4 weeks of played time! The Ultimate WoW Guide has made WoW fast, easy and way more enjoyable for me. I am making 3000 plus gold per month at auction with the gold guide. So why not give the Ultimate WoW Guide a try on a toon with their FREE leveling guide below?
The Ultimate WoW Guide best alternative...
From ronniejw at Zygor forum:
I was banned from WOW today. Here is the reason they gave me:
"This account was closed after a Blizzard Entertainment investigation produced evidence indicating the account was associated to multiple accounts that participated in exploitative activities."
I've only had an account for one month with plans to set up one for my stepson when he got back from vacation. I have no idea what I did wrong and they won’t tell me. All I did was play the game. I've never purchased gold from anyone or paid for power leveling or anything at all like that.
I wonder if making 2500 in gold during my first month had anything to do with it. I just bought things cheep and sold them for more on the auction house. Is that against their rules? Or maybe it’s because I was leveling too fast.
I’m so angry at this company. How can they get away with selling me all that software and then closing my account without giving a specific reason or presenting the evidence they claimed to have?
It’s criminal! They won’t be getting any more of my money.
From littled at Zygor forum:
hello everyone, the other day I started a new WoW account and I also bought the Horde level guide for $40. I have been playing the past 3 days and got to level 50 using the guide (it was very useful). But this morning I tried logging in and it said my account was closed due to "Exploitative Activity: In-Game Chat Policy Violation - Advertisement and Spamming".
I do understand why this happened because I am 110% certain I did not due any chat spamming for any type of program nor did I insult or use any harsh language while I have been playing. So I am woundering did zygor somehow make my account spam anything that is not allowed by blizzard? and Zygor is 100% legal and cannot get banned form it right?

Blizzard has banned my account for using your Alliance leveling Guide, a refund would be in order.
Zygor Guides Review
I took the Zygor Leveling Guide for a test-run on my alt account with a level 33 Warlock and a level 40 Paladin. The first thing I noticed was that the quests are selected for your class. I didn’t have to weed out any that would be too hard for the warlock to solo. The other nice thing is that you can skip forward on the quests. The Zygor add-on has this option that lets it analyze your level and it gets rid of the quests that aren’t worth doing and shows you only the ones that’ll actually help you level up. It was easy to get my Warlock another 15 levels in only a day of following Zygor guides. The Paladin leveling guide was even easier for me and I never had to do anything but let the guide show me where to go next.
Zygor guides interface has two different options. One has a lot of designs and animations and the other is simple and straightforward. Both of them are really clean and they blend in well with the WoW interface and aren’t too distracting. I like the display option that doesn’t show all the animations and stuff, so I set it to that and everything still worked great. I kind of wish the simple interface was the default option, but switching is no big deal – 9.5/10 here.
Ease of Use
This is definitely 10/10. It was really easy to setup. Zygor guides detects where you have WoW installed and automatically unzips to the right folders and everything. You can launch WoW directly after it’s installed and everything runs right off. Once you have the guide up and running, it’s totally simple to follow and takes you step-by-step from one quest to the next.
Ok, lots of features here. There’s an interface that automatically detects your class for you, and puts all the info you need right there. No looking anything up in an ebook or on the web. There’s an awesome option that lets Zygor guides pick your talent points for you automatically. That means no looking through forums trying to find the right build. And if you decide to go with something else, you don’t have to let Zygor guides pick for you. There’s also a pretty cool directional arrow that’ll show you how to get to where you need to go for your quests if you don’t already know the way. Basically this gives you everything you need to level your character up in game without having to resort to online wikis, forums or other stuff that’ll take you out of the game. This is a 10/10 for me.
I like that Zygor guides saves you time and running back and forth by grouping quests together that take you to the same place, or places that are close together. This way I didn’t have to spend a lot of time traveling instead of leveling. Really shaves some time off of the leveling process if you’re trying to get your alts up to speed as fast as possible.
I only ran into one problem when I was using Zygor guides, and that’s the flight path recognition. Zygor guides doesn’t’ always know when you have a flight path or not, so sometimes it’ll suggest one that you already have. You can always skip anything that you’ve got already, but if it doesn’t recognize a lot of flight paths it can be a little annoying.
I think this is a good guide for a lot of different types of players. If you’re trying to level an alt to get into a guild, it’s great. If you’re brand new, you’ll get the most use out of it since it starts at level one. If you want to solo but not grind, it’s definitely a must have. Everything I did to level I did through quests in the Zygor guides. If you love WoW and love leveling new alts but you hate grinding, get Zygor guides. For the price, it’s totally awesome and definitely pays for itself in convenience.
Total score: 8/10.
