It wasn't a Strategy guide.
Julie
Print is too small, information too generalized, maps too small.

I wish I had thrown them money away rather then buy this book.

I found I've used this strategy guide very little as it is much easier to find the information I seek in the various online databases like Thottbot, Allakhazam, WoWHead, etc.

I ventured into reading this book with an open-mind, as I do not know much about Burning Crusade. However, I was rather disappointed. About more than 80% of the book is just tables of quests and items. ( They should have put charts in searchable tables online, but fortunately many free sites do this anyhow ). And looking through the tables, I notice that the items documented are pre-BC 1-60 material.

Another portion of the book covers Blood Elves and Draenei, so if people struggled with level 1-10 content, then there's a lot of material here. Also covered are all of the revised and new talents. Most of this was known for a long time and discussed, but nevertheless, I did find some minimal value in discussion of that for material that I neglected to read in WoW forums.

Some qualities that I liked from the book:
- Overview on Dungeons and Levels, New Battlegrounds (around page 22)
- List of Rewards from Faction Reputation (very excellent material)
- List of Alliance/Horde Grand Masters to learn new crafts (page 10)
- Map Guides with Key (useful when quest says goes to unknown place)

Things absent from the guide:
- Details on new Hunter Pets and trainable abilities, locations, etc.
- Details on strategic quest chains needed for reputation
- Details on anything relating to Caverns of Time and Mount Hyjal
- Details on speciality Leatherworking bind-on-pickup patterns (dragonscale, tribal, elemental)
- Details on Smithing Specialties (Armorsmith vs Weaponsmith (axesmith, hammersmith, swordsmith)) bind-on-pickup
- Details on new crafting patterns and where to get/farm resources to make them
- Detailed Reputation Guides for factions, e.g.

This guide stinks, and I don't like it.

Trade items - it only lists the mats, not what they do or stats. Better off using a mod

Armor and weapons section - it doesn't list stats on any of these. Better off using a mod to get this information.

Maps - too small, but at least somewhat useful

Quests - many mistakes; not sorted in any order that makes sense. Very hard to use this situation. It would have been nice if they had been sorted somehow - alphabetical order, grouped by quest chains, grouped by quest giver location, anything.

Overall, this was a complete waste of money. There is information obtainable from thottbot, allakhazam, or wowwiki which is easier to find and more accurate.

Stay away from this.

Ask yourself whether you are new to WoW (World of Warcraft) or experienced.

If you are new to WoW, then the bulk of BC (Burning Crusades) material is not relevant to you until you've played for quite a while. The new zones are all level 58 or higher, which for a casual new player to WoW will take a while to reach. By then, you can buy the second edition. If you are new to the game, go ahead and buy the *second* editions of "Master Guide" and "Dungeon Companion", both of which are fine for new visitors to Azeroth. And note that this guide assumes you are fully familiar with current WoW, for example only the new talents are explained.

A third of the book is full of equipment tables (the purpose of which is dubious since it's incomplete and won't tell you *how* to get *any* of the items). Many pages are dedicated to crafting tables, again missing pertinent information (e.g. the characteristics of any of the items!). And there is no information to help you find and navigate the best online resources, such as Allakhazam, wowwiki, and thottbot.

The graphics for the zone maps (something that really is useful in a guide book) are poor. And the page layout for the zone chapter is HORRIBLE. The first zone (Hellfire Peninusla) has a two-page legend and starts out the chapter on zones, which means that *every* other zone after it are layed out such that the legends for each map is on the *next* page!

If you are already familiar with WoW, then the first edition of this book is so full of duplicate material that you already know, and errors and omissions for material that you *do* want to know, that it will be just frustrating.

Well, I was enthusiastic about this because I thought "Finally, I'll have the scoop on where things are and where to go and what to do". Nope. This book is 80% useless. It has maps of the instances which are 1/16th of a page. It doesnt have drops for the instances WITH the instances. It DOES Have a listing of EVERY weapon in WoW. For no good reason.

My biggest beef was that the layout had no rhyme or reason. Quests were given in alphabetical order, rather than in the chains they appear in.

They should offer this product as a database as well as a book. They had to make one anyway to make the book, and it would be better than the paper version.
