Introducing the Guild Mentoring Program

Community Manager
Azeroth needs more heroes to rise through the ranks and your guild can help. We’re looking for a few good guilds to volunteer for the new Guild Mentoring Program. Guilds participating in the program will take part in identifying new players within selected realms, offering to invite them into the guild, and teaching them the ways of Azeroth as they level and reach the end game content.


Q. What is the Guild Mentoring Program?
A. The guild mentoring program identifies guilds on select realms to act as mentors for new and low level players (below level 85).

Q. How long does the Guild Mentoring Program run for?
A. The Guild Mentoring Program will run for a period of four months from the time that guilds are selected and notified.

Q. Is there a certain criteria for being selected as a mentoring guild?
A. Guilds must meet certain criteria to be considered for the Guild Mentoring Program:
  • Guilds must be located on one of the selected realms.
  • They must be willing to commit to the program for a four month period.
  • They must be willing to change their name for the four month Guild Mentoring participation period. (Names will be changed back at the end of the program.)
  • Guilds must be at least level 6 and have an active membership.

Q. How many guilds will be recruiting per realm?
A. Only one guild will be selected per faction on each realm.

Q. What does my guild need to do to volunteer?
A. The guild leader will need to submit an application to with the following information:
  • Current guild name and guild leader name
  • Current realm and faction of the applying guild
  • Current guild level and number of guild members
  • Guild leader’s real name and phone number (this information will not be published and is for internal use only)
  • Brief description of the Mentoring Guild

Q. How long are you accepting applications for?
A. We will be accepting applications for two weeks. We will then select a guild for the Guild Mentoring Program from those that meet the criteria and contact the guild leader.

Q. On what realms will this program be available?
A. Mentoring guilds will be chosen for the following realms:

US Realms

Oceanic Realms

Q. Do participating guilds get anything special?
A. Some of the benefits for taking part in the program include:
  • MVP status on the forums for the guild leader and recruitment officer
  • Guild member private forum access
  • Recognition for your guild as being participants in the program

Check it out! I think this is an interesting idea and would love to see a guild pick this up. Read and check it out! Its interesting strictly from a "motivation" stand point as well. Why create this? Why Dalaran? Does Blizzard foresee a large number of people coming back and levelling from scratch......a veritable TIDE of Pandas!!?!?!?!?!

So....who's goining to throw their hat in?

A long time ago, in a server far far away I played a warlock. Now this is back in the day when mechanics were F#$%ed up. For instance, some warlock pets would turn on their masters. So anyway I road into Goldshire on my Felstead (in those days getting the Felstead was a lot of work) and spammed /1 "Story time with a demon!!!!"

After making some story up about fishing in Eastern Plaguelands I had a good dozen little level 1-2s who obviously thought I was some NPC. I was just about to discuss the value of using raw Orc as bait when my Infernal turned and killed me, then proceeded to massacre the audience.

Ahhhhh memories.

Speaking from the horde side perspective, none atm.

I know! I started a hordy for funsies, I was in ogrimmar and I thought i wasn't in the trade channel because nothing was happening! Horde is dead over here. They should offer a faction change to a whole Ally guild, because they won't get anything active over there now.
