Waypoints for all the Elders of the 2012 Lunar Festival

I was ready for the Lunar festival and all the traveling I was about to do. I had a great guide (The Overachiever's Guide to 2012's Lunar Festival) and hints in the comments on Wowhead for individual elders. Planning to do this on three characters, I was prepared for the tediousness of the festival and had the info to do it as quickly as possible.

However, it was still a matter of chasing all over the place, looking at my location and trying to figure out how the coordinate system worked, "should I fly North or East to make the little numbers go up or down." And then there was the time I missed one elder in the Borean Tundra and didn't realize it until I was all the way over in the Howling Fjord. I traveled back to the tundra to get the elder I missed, only to realize I'd forgotten one of the two Utgarde dungeon elders back in Howling Fjord. *facepalm*

Right when I was finishing the achievement on one character I saw coordinates for TomTom waypoints in the bottom of one wowhead comment and I realized someone might have made TomTom waypoint coordinates for the elders and I'd be able to just follow the big green arrow everywhere for my next two characters. A quick Google later and I found a guide to the Elders as they were in 2011.

It was missing both the Cataclysm and dungeon elders. Even if it did have the elders in the dungeons themselves, I wanted waypoints in the dungeon's regions as reminders so I wouldn't traipse back and forth across Northrend again. It was time to edit the waypoints myself and check them all, since I saw a few mistakes.

Then, I realized there was no good way to upload all those waypoints, except copying and pasting by hand a few lines at a time into a macro. And I'd have to limit each paste to 255 chars or less. I searched around and found an 'extended macro' editor that allowed more then 255 characters in a macro. I highly recommend SuperDuperMacro, it makes this a whole lot easier.

Copy and paste the following waypoints into an SDM macro, then run it. Magical little green waypoints will show up all over the world, turn on the big arrow and follow it around from point to point.

As a final note, even following the arrow doesn't help all the time. I was verifying the coordinates as I traveled around on my second character doing the achievement and I had finished the Eastern Kingdoms when in the middle of Kalimdor I realized I didn't have the Eastern Kingdom achievement. Looking at the achievement, it turned out I was so concerned about getting the coordinates correct, I'd completely forgotten to complete the quest on one of the elders. *facepalm*

Maybe I'll get it right on character number three.
