Picking Your Habitat: 1,0
Almost exactly 8 months after starting this guide, it is finally done. Picking Your Habitat is an Excel guide that takes your level, class, and solo/party preference to recommend a couple places where you can level. The guide also tells you two tips, details or facts that will further help you. With nearly 15,000 words in the entire guide, this guide will keep spitting new information at you, whether you like it or not o.o .

This guide isn't all about information, however. There are nearly 60 different color schemes, or spectrums, that Excel 2007 and more recent users can pick from. This doesn't really affect your results, but a new guide color can make a world of difference, kind of.

Before you download, please take some time to read the history of this guide. You may also want to take a peek at the spectrum codes, or read other things on this post.

Defining Your Habitat: 2,0
Over a year after this guide was designed, part two is now complete. Defining Your Habitat is the second part of an Excel guide that takes any in game location (sans lair maps), and displays information about this map. In conjunction with Picking Your Habitat, this guide can help you pick the leveling location right for you. With nearly 2,500 words in this section and over 250 statistics for all maps collectively, this guide is armed with tools to help you find your perfect habitat.

Like in Picking Your Habitat, this section features the Mystery Field. However, it is not yet fully functional. Despite this, some codes from Picking Your Habitat will work, but there may be errors in displaying the colors correctly.

History: 4,0
Back in November 2008, Picking Your Habitat was born. Crescendolls created a little Excel Guide, called The Leveling Spot Locator (or something like that)(Version 1). The guide was then passed on to Exomega255 for testing and constructive criticism. He wanted the guide to be more accurate, so instead of there being 120 different information cells, there should be 60*14*2, or 1,680 (levels 5-65 times number of classes in DoMO times leveling style(solo/party)). Obviously this was nearly impossible, especiall when the number was tripled to include 2 tips for the user. Instead with the help of NA DoMO Skill Plan Guide Writer Onishi, a new format was created that split the classes into three groups, physical, magical and classes that had elements of both groups (Version 2). All was going well, until Onishi sadly quit. A couple months down the line, Crescendolls was filling in information when suddenly, a bug was found. Glyth came in to the resque and fixed the bug, and allowed for the guide to go for the home stretch (Version 3). Sadly, another bug was found, but a preview version was able to be released. After the release of Bigbeam and Witch Doctor, and other small updates to the guide, Crescendolls created the Witch Doctor Skill Planner using the VLOOKUP formula. After tampering with the formula, it was discovered that it could be used in Picking Your Habitat as well (Version 4).

Special Thanks: 5,0

Exomega255 for helpful feedback and early stage testing
Onishi for help with starting formulas and layout

Glyth for help with later stage formula working and error reporting

Spectrum Codes: 6,0
Each spectrum name is given below, along with the correspinding code. The code comes first, followed by a "-", then the spectrum name. To enter these and make them work, place them into the Mystery Field slot. Note that you must have Excel 2007 or more recent to take full advantage of this function. Have fun!

[ ] represents something else. ([a fruit that is green and red] = watermelon)
+ combine twos or more things. (card + board = cardboard)
- takes away something. (lemon - mon = le)
_ is a letter that you are not given. (M _ L _ N = melon (notice that the letters are upper cased just to make it easier to read))
Sequel means to take a code from earlier and place a number after it. Be very careful about spaces between words! ("melon" would be "melon 2" in the sequel)
If there isn't a symbol between two words, be sure to put a space between them.
