Why this game needs to end. Elitists are unwilling to share information that might, just might, help a bad player improve. WoW players are like pack of wolves, preying on the weakest member.
That mentality is not just wow, its everywhere, every gaming community, its because its online, weather its on console or PC. youll always have the asshats and elitists talking trash and berating other players.
one piece of advice for new players is tho, be up front when your new to a guild tell them your new to the game that u want to learn to play for raiding or pvp. Also I suggest joining a pvp guild as well if you like it because, raid mechanics will come later, but getting even half decent at pvp teaches your to stay out of stuff.
I played over 6 months before I met some decent players to help me when I started. Helped a lot of others as well along the way, I may not know their class or role, but can tell 'em who to talk to for help and what sites to read up on.
p.s. thanks for the read, OP
