New Player Tips: Knowing Is Half the Battle
New Player Tips is a recurring feature in which we ask World of Warcraft veterans to share their thoughts and advice for new adventurers on a variety of in-game topics.
This week's topic is: "If I knew then what I know now."
Remember that time you walked all the way from Stormwind to Ironforge because you'd never heard of the Deeprun Tram? Or when your rogue accidentally rolled need on a caster dagger?
You were embarrassed, but you weren't alone: Everyone was new to World of Warcraft at one point, and we've all made our share of mistakes. Life on Azeroth is full of learning opportunities, and a tip from a more experienced player can help others avoid similar pitfalls.
Loading-screen tips like "You can eat and drink at the same time" seem obvious now, but many players might not have picked up on something like that on their own. As part of our ongoing New Player Tips feature, we want to know what advice you'd give a new player just starting out. Spread the knowledge around!
