Hey everyone! Im starting a thread to help new people.

-Starting wow-
When you start WoW, the first thing to do is figure out what you want to do. Here are some things people do.

Professions
*people level to 5 and get Professions. When you get a profession, you make items used in the game.

*Primary Professions*
*Alchemy*
Alchemists use herbs to create strange, magical brews that heal, empower, and produce a variety of positive effects - invisibility, elemental resistance, mana restoration, and much, much more.

*Blacksmithing*
Blacksmiths utilize their expertise with hammer and anvil to craft deadly weapons, heavy suits of mail and plate armor, and other, more specialized items.

*Enchanting*
Enchanters disenchant surplus magical items - and use the residue to permanently augment equipment of their choosing.

*Engineering*
Engineers take advantage of their inventiveness to create an immense (and occasionally random) variety of helpful items.

*Herbalism*
Herbalists carefully harvest the helpful and potent herbs found throughout the world.

*Inscription*
Scribes weave words of power into glyphs that can improve heroes' skills and abilities, and add special effects not possible by normal means.

*Jewelcrafting*
Jewelcrafters unlock the surprising power in precious stones, creating potent jewelry and trinkets.

*Leatherworking*
Leatherworkers take the rough, spiny or sturdy hides of beasts everywhere and turn them into useful products.

*Mining*
Miners pursue valuable and useful ores, extracting them straight from the earth with their picks.

*Skinning*
Skinners ensure that nothing goes to waste by removing the hides of dead beasts and amassing piles of fur and leather.

*Tailoring*
Tailors take simple cloth and weave wonders out of it; cloth armor and robes, shirts, bags and other creations are the purview of the tailor.

-Secondary Profession-
*Archaeology*
Archaeologists search the world - and places beyond - for mysterious remnants of the past.

*Cooking*
Cooks experiment with strange and wondrous ingredients gathered from the far corners of Azeroth.

*First Aid*
Physicians save lives in the dangerous world of Azeroth by using bandages and antidotes to heal injuries and remove poisons.

*Fishing*
Fishers relax and feed themselves by catching the bounty of Azeroth's lakes and seas.

Roleplaying
Role playing is when two or more people take on a personality, trait, actions, and mannerisms that aren't their own in order to act out a scenario, or part of a game, or similar. Think of it as acting. In fact, it >is< acting.

If you think about it, actors take on 'roles' for a movie or a play. 'Role playing' is acting out a role.

So these people are acting out some scene, game, movie, whatever, that they know about and are comfortable doing online. It's actually quite fun with a good group of people.
*got this anwser from http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080725184524AAqGinN * Have any other questions? just place it here and ill try and get back to it ASAP!

Welcome to the NPH&G forum!

This entire forum is for answering questions, making threads like this is largely pointless.

Everything in your post is described in more detail on the WoW website already:
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/profession/

If you want to contribute to the forum, go answer questions. And unlike the posts you've already made, please read timestamps before posting in threads - you've necro'd three dead threads today.
