Both Dugi and Zygor are efficient and well made World of Warcraft Guides. But like any two products, both have their pros and cons. Read on to find out the differences between these two popular WoW guides.
Installation: Zygor Guides takes the cake in efficiency of installation and easy updates. Dugi installation is more complicated than Zygor. One of the pros of Zygor Guides is that they automatically update, where as with Dugi, the user must manually reinstall certain add-ons. Dugi could be a bit better if the company implemented auto updates of software.
Try Before You Buy: Dugi Guides will get you to level 40 free of charge, where as Zygor Guides free-trial ends at only level 13. To some, this is inefficient, because even beginner players can level up to 13 in less than a day. Dugi wins, hands down, as far as letting the players thoroughly try-out the guide before buying.
Pricing: While high prices do not mean quality in any and all products, it is worth noting that Dugi does cost less than Zygor. It’s up to the player to decide which guide works best for them. But Dugi Guides does offer both alliance and horde gathering guides for a flat price, while Zygor Guides sells each guide separately. Dugi Guides prices start around $97 per set, where as Zygor prices guides individually, starting around $50. Dugi inches out Zygor in the price department.
The Guides:While price and installation are important aspects, most players are truly interested in what the guides consist of. How they work? Are they efficient? Here is a brief rundown of the pros and cons of both Zygor and Dugi.
Features both guides offer –
- Both Zygor and Dugi have navigational pointers displayed on the screen during the game, and help lead the players in the right direction.
- Both guides instruct the players on which quests to go on, how many mobs the player should dispose of, and how many objects to pick up.
Dugi Guide Pros and Zygor Guide Cons:
- Dugi Guides has an icon that pops up on the screen during a quest that allows the player to click on the icon instead of searching through their bags. Zygor offers a similar icon, but it is much smaller.
- Dugi marks quests as either completed or allows you to skip them. Zygor Guides only allows the player to skip quests.
- Dugi lets you decide whether of not to skip a quest, where as Zygor will decide for you if it sees that nothing of value to the player on that particular quest. While this can help with leveling players, some players may not like Zygor making decisions for them
Zygor Pros and Dugi Cons:
- Zygor keeps track of paths that have already been completed, even when the game is not in use. Dugi simply disregards these paths and focuses only on the current level. This can make navigation difficult as a player needs to backtrack.
- Zygor Guides is able to keep the player caught up with mobs and flight paths even if the player has leveled out. Dugi Guides, meanwhile, assumes that you have skipped a particular quest, which may cause the player to have to spend more time trying to figure out why mobs aren’t dropping certain items.
- Zygor tell the player what is coming up in the game, where as Dugi simply gives information about the current quest and situation.
Extras: Both Dugi and Zygor go above and beyond simply being an In-Game Guide. Both offer extras with subscription, but Dugi offers a bit more than Zygor. For example, one extra that Dugi offer that Zygor does not are profession guides. Dugi offers guides for every profession, where as Zygor offers just one. But Zygor offers articles on Auction House and Gold Guides.
