Introducing the Guild Mentoring Program

(Sticky)

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.

F.A.Q.

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 wowguilds@blizzard.com 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  • Guild leader’s real name and phone number (this information will not be published and is for internal use only)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
Aggramar
Azuremyst
Blackhand
Cenarius
Dalaran
Doomhammer
Garona
Garrosh
Ravencrest
Sen'jin
Shu'halo
Ysera

Oceanic Realms
Dath'Remar
Saurfang

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

I feel sorry for all newcomers if Strath's guild somehow gets selected for this.

I like the idea! I remember starting the game and having to do everything basically alone until I found a guild and made some friends. Certainly a wonderful idea to give people a little advantage as they begin a new character, a new realm, or start in the community for the first time altogether.

My family and I have been doing this for years :'(
Glad there is a Blizzard-sponsored program for it now though.
People always complain about "noobs" but they sure aren't willing to help people learn the game.
