Team iDemise VS Joana
Its SHOWDOWN TIME Again!
If you’re wondering about the differences between the Team iDemise & Joana leveling guides for World of Warcraft, I’ve used them both, and these are the basic differences I’ve found. I’ll also talk about what guide will suit what kind of player best.
My bullet points are coded – green means that the feature is unique, and that the other guide doesn’t have it.
Team iDemise’s “QuestUp”
- Want Leveling Calculations Based On Fast Players?
- Guide Calculates Optimum Leveling Times Based on Other Fast Player’s Routes.
- Fully Automated In-game guide (no clicking next previous to step to the next quest)
- Directional Arrow Points You From Quest to Quest.
- Very Easy To Use.
- Horde and Alliance, WOTLK Compatible.
Team iDemise Leveling Guide Review:
The best thing about the iDemise QuestUp guide is that they track other fast leveling players in World of Warcraft, and compute the fastest time based only on the players who make it through WoW the fastest. I was initially skeptical about this guide, and am still a bit hesitant about the automation which controls which quests you do, but after using this newly released mod myself I came around a bit. The interface is great, easy to use, and it automatically tracks your progress. The quests suggested were similar to other quests I’ve done with other leveling guide, which seems to reinforce the fact that the guide is in fact calculating the fastest path.
With this face-off the question to me isn’t, “which is faster?”, because I think its too close to call.
Its “do I want to follow a route honed by the Horde expert, or by a computer that follows and copies the fastest gamers?”. Yes, its true — I’m not convinced by the idea behind this guide, but knowing that you’re following only the fastest leveler’s routes as determined by a computer program is very appealing and hard to fault.
Best for those who like an automated guide, and want a no frills fast leveling guide. People with Alliance alts might also consider taking this guide over Joana.
Joana’s 1-80 Horde Leveling Guide
- Want The Specialist Horde Guide? Buy Joana.
- Fastest Horde Leveling Route.
- In-Game Guide OR HTML/Print Versions.
- No Fluff Guide That’s ALL About Leveling.
- Not Automated Like QuestUp.
- Horde Only, WOTLK Compatible.
Joana’s Guide Review:
The best thing about Joanas’s 1-80 Horde Leveling Guide is the fact that your guide is a Horde only player. Joana has only ever optimized his guides for Horde, and knows the faction’s ins and outs well. Needless to say if you want to use your guide for Alliance toons with Joana you’re out of luck.
Joana also caters to the retro market, or people who don’t like in game guides, and provides an html and printable version of his 1-80 leveling guide.
So Should You Buy Joana’s Guide Or Go With Team iDemise?
If you’re ONLY after a leveling guide for Horde, and don’t mind a slightly dated looking user interface, you’d do well to go with Joana’s Guide. Joana is one of the oldest guide owners on the internet, and has been playing WoW since day one. This match up is one of the hardest to call for me. Both guides are guaranteed for 60 days… so there’s always the option of trying before you buy!
