New Player Help and Guides

May 19 Welcome. Please Read! Welcome to the New Player Help and Guides forum! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can ask questions and receive helpful information from experienced players and learn more about the adventures that await you! Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy, so we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct (http://us.battle.net/en/community/conduct) and guidelines (http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/15252595157) before posting. Important Reminders: Search The search function at the top of the World of Warcraft community site is extremely effective and robust. Before you create a new forum topic, please be use it to search for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer for which you are looking. Making a new thread on an existing subject can result in your thread being deleted or, if you continue to re-post the same content, the loss of your forum privileges for spamming. Rating The forum rating system can be used to promote positive discussion, demote unhelpful comments, and even report posts that violate the forum Code of Conduct. By hovering over a post you'll be presented with several options, including a "thumbs up" (Like) and a "thumbs down" (Dislike) icon. Clicking the "thumbs up" icon will rate the post up. If enough people like a post, it will gain a Highly Rated status and appear at the top of related search results. Highly Rated posts will also have a highlighted background. Clicking the "thumbs down" icon will expand a drop-down menu which will include "Dislike," "Trolling, "Spam" and "Report" options. "Dislike" will rate the post down. If enough people dislike a post, it will be darkened, and with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden completely. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of a violation. Please note that you can only rate each post once. Use your power wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Have fun posting on these forums, and good luck with your adventures in Azeroth! Guidelines In addition to the forum Code of Conduct (http://us.battle.net/en-us/community/conduct), here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, these cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked. [ul] The World of Warcraft forums are for discussion of topics directly related to World of Warcraft. The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to World of Warcraft, Battle.net, or Blizzard Entertainment are subject to deletion. Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, and/or non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Using the words "Blizzard," "Blue," or any community team members' names in a thread topic is frowned upon. Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that; however, use of such words in the subject line does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Posting "First" or IBTL ("in before lock") constitutes as spamming. You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL ("in before the lock") is not helpful, and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Do not "bump" posts. The act of posting simply to bump a thread is considered spamming. This also includes bumping very old threads for no reason (called "necro bumping" or "necroing"). Petition posts are frowned upon. These are discussion forums and, as such, we ask that you hold discussions. Creating a thread to ask for replies as votes is not a discussion. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Do not post about locked or deleted threads. Posts that are moderated have a reason behind the moderation. It's up to you to read the forum Code of Conduct and these guidelines to determine what you did wrong, learn from your mistake, and attempt to post again without breaking any rules. Kaivax0 May 19
Feb 7 A Return to World of Warcraft: Player Guide So you’ve decided to return to World of Warcraft. Welcome back! There’s just one thing you’ll need before jumping back into the fray—knowledge. To aid you in making your glorious comeback, we’ve compiled some handy information every returning hero should know. Once armed with knowledge, nothing (and no one) will stand in your way. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/8876440/Nethaera123 Feb 7
Jan 21 Welcome to Warcraft - Frequent Questions Note that this FAQ has been updated to reflect the 6.0.2 patch and the Warlords of Draenor expansion! Hello all, and welcome to World of Warcraft! This can be a very rewarding game and offers a variety of cool experiences with the chance to meet some interesting folks. We'd all like to extend a hearty welcome to the newest members of our ever-growing community and wish you the best of luck in your gaming experience. Before we get started, one of the first questions you might be asking is why the text of certain posters is in green or blue. Green is because those posters are forum MVPs. They have no special privileges or powers and, besides the text, are in no way different from many posters you might meet on these forums. MVPs are recognized by Blizzard for providing consistently accurate information and helping to maintain a positive atmosphere on the forums. This, of course, does not preclude some of them from being a little snarky and sarcastic at times! You will also notice posters that represent themselves with blue font. These are official representatives that work for Blizzard. They do have the ability to answer many questions and offer some bans when the situation warrants it. More information about these two can be found in the first sticky on the General Forums, as well as links to the forum Guidelines and Code of Conduct: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/900930866#1 Moving on! While Warcraft can be a very exciting experience, there are likely many questions you will ask along the way and a few problems you might run into. Fear not, for all the people who post in these forums (whether they'd like to admit it or not!) were in the same boat at one point or another. In fact, you might even see some of them come in here and ask questions of their own! Take this as a sign that not everyone knows everything about the game! For your reading ease, the most asked questions will be highlighted in this thread. Refer to the Categories and list below to easily navigate your way through the posts (you can also do a ctrl+f search for any important terms).

Feb 3 Giving Back - In-Game Help for New Players List was last pruned of inactivity on 4/12/2016. You can check this post to see how I determined inactivity: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/981608215?page=42#831 It's never too late to volunteer! I'm always adding people to the list. Also, despite the name, these mentors are also available to returning players who need help, too! ^^ Disclaimer: This is NOT a place to populate your friend list in-game. These are mentors here to help. These players are also NOT chosen by Blizzard or part of the MVP program (though a few of them are MVPs, like me!). They are simply other posters who are willing to be helpful! -- Originally started by Hektikk of the Trollbane server, on the old forums. Now created here and maintained by me. Help on the forums is good, but sometimes as a new player, you need help in-game with your various questions. And that's where this thread comes in! It's a list of volunteers--players just like you or me--who are willing to become mentors to new players. They'll get you started if you're brand-new, and answer questions as you are learning your way through the game. You may even make new friends! Before you choose a potential mentor, read on for some helpful hints about how to make your experience a successful one! -- NEW PLAYERS: IMPORTANT: Please DO NOT post in this thread asking people to come to your server to help, or to ask a question about the game. The point of this thread is to provide you with a resource so that YOU can seek out the help you need in-game, not for people to search for you. For questions, just make a new thread and ask the regulars here on the forums. - To use this thread, check if someone from your faction/server is on the list already, or decide where you'd like to play on based on available volunteers. Next, add the volunteer to your friends list. Then, you can see when they get online and whisper them! You can also mail them via the mailbox, or check the Google lists (links in post #2) for any of that player's alts. If a mentor has a BattleTag listed, you can use that to talk to them no matter what server/faction you're on. However, they will have to accept your friend request first. - Keep in mind that players on Oceanic servers can ONLY see players from other Oceanic servers in the game world. If you wish to be on an Oceanic server, it is highly recommended you seek help from mentors also on Oceanic servers. - NOTE: Due to restrictions, Starter Accounts cannot mail anyone, whisper other players, or use BattleTag/RealID messaging. If another player whispers you first, or you both add one another to your friend list, you may whisper them. - Be sure to identify yourself when you contact someone. Mention this thread. Some players might ignore you otherwise. Also keep in mind that a player might be busy, so they might miss your whisper the first time around. Don't spam or harass them. - Don't beg or act entitled to bags, gold, dungeon runs, guild invites, etc. No one on this list is obligated to give you items or do you favors. - If someone is rude or very unhelpful, please ignore them, then consider messaging me in-game or on Twitter (@LadyLatias) to let me know (please don't call them out on the forums). Conversely, if you had a great experience with someone, let me know that too! - If any of the characters on this list seem to not exist/be active anymore, please make a post here saying so and I will remove them. -- VOLUNTEERS: - Be patient and treat the newbies well. No one wants to roll on your server, have you talk to them for a few days, and then have you get bored with them and ignore them. If you don't have patience for teaching, don't volunteer. - You are welcome to submit your BattleTag, but only do so if you're willing to have strangers talk to you at any time. Also note that people who friend request you can NO LONGER include a note to identify themselves. Please remove and/or report BT friends if they are being rude or harassing you. - If you want to be a volunteer, please post a maximum of five characters per faction per server. Alts are no longer listed here, but they will be added to the Google lists. - Please do not submit characters that are under level 10, bank alts, or otherwise not played frequently. - If you tire of the responsibility of being helpful to new players, or are going to quit the game, please post to have your name removed from the list. If you plan on doing a change to a character on this list (server transfers, name/faction change, etc.), please post to let me know. -- If you want to be a volunteer, just post here with your character(s), faction, and server, and I'll add your name to the list. I will also list Battletags if you wish (not required). Welcome to WoW! Happy questing!Cerylia987 Feb 3
Jan 31 Blindsight's How to Choose a Server Guide [Originally posted by Blindsight-Spirestone on the old Warcraft forums--it's my understanding he no longer posts, but this is a valuable and informative guide] Since it's a frequently asked question on these boards, I've thrown together a quick guide for how to pick a server. Server Datacentre Location - New York, Chicago, Phoenix, Los Angeles First and foremost: Limit your search to servers that are as close to you (physically) as possible. Closer servers will have better latency, and thus deliver a better play experience. WoWWiki has a great list by datacentre: http://www.wowwiki.com/US_realm_list_by_datacenter Realm Type - PvP, PvE, RP, RP-PvP Now that you know which servers to look at, the next most important question is if you want to play on a PvE, PvP, RP, or RP-PvP server. RP vs. non-RP servers should be a simple choice: when interacting with other players, do you want to act "in character" replying to other players like they're living inside the world of Azeroth, or would you rather just play WoW like any other video game treating everyone else like a player at a keyboard? If you want to play on an RP server with active RPers: "Wyrmrest Accord and Moon Guard are very popular, but Moon Guard is very over populated." -Nok PvE vs. PvP is a bit of a tougher decision. On a PvP server, once you get to about lvl 20, in just about every questing zone you go to you can be attacked at any time by any player of the opposite faction (Horde vs. Alliance). If you like the idea of jumping other players while they're running around killing mobs/questing, this may be for you. If you don't like the idea of a max lvl player killing you in 1 shot when they ride by, then you may want to stick to PvE servers. Some people feel that PvP servers have a slightly more mature community since most children and/or immature players can't stand being killed randomly. Other people feel that PvP servers have a less mature community since it's full of teenagers who like to grief other players while they're just trying to quest. YMMV. Realm population - New, Low, Medium, High, Full The next major consideration for choosing a realm is the realms' population, both the total number of players and the Alliance / Horde ratio. This is a bit more complicated, and there are different ways of looking at the data. First, WarcraftRealms.com has a tool for taking a "census" of various realms, but it relies on data uploads from players on the server. Its data is only as accurate as the data it receives from player uploads, but it gives a pretty good baseline idea: http://www.warcraftrealms.com/realmstats.php?sort=Total Another useful way to look at population data is in terms of server age. Older servers tend to have higher populations. WoWWiki has a list of all US realms' creation dates: http://www.wowwiki.com/Timeline_of_the_creation_of_US_realms So that's great, but what does it mean? How does population affect the game? Here are a few points to consider: Empty servers: By far the easiest way of ruining the MMO experience is to have nobody to play with. Avoid servers with very low population. Queues: Very high population realms often have queue times. This could mean waiting for half an hour every time you want to play during prime time. During prime time (weekday evenings and weekends), check the realm status page to see if the server is listed as full: http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/realmstatus/ Economy: Higher population realms have more robust economies. This means the auction house will have many more items listed and will be much more competitive. 10/25 Man Raid PuGs: Higher population => more things happening => more groups going all the time. Pick up Groups will form more frequently and will fill faster, meaning you can play more and sit in town waiting for groups less. This also, however, means (on some servers) that PuGs can be more picky in who they take along since anyone can be replaced quickly. A/H ratio: Depending on how you like to play, you may want an even ratio so that everything that involves opposite faction interaction (like world PvP) are more fair, or you may want to be on the advantage side of an imbalanced ratio so that your side is usually winning. The only disadvantage with being on the plus side of a wildly imbalanced population is that soon, world PvP zones (i.e. Wintergrasp) will only allow the same number of players (beyond a minimum level of 20 players) from each faction in at the same time, so if nobody from the other side shows up, only 20 from your side can get in.Frejya112 Jan 31
Apr 24 BEWARE OF KEYLOGGERS! Don't follow that link! Version 2.0 added updates, new information, and cleaned up the format. Transferred from the Old Welcome to WoW forum. -Tera/Baloo I figured that a thread alerting new forum goers of our incessant keylogger issues right off the bat would be best suited in the Welcome/Beginners forum....so here goes... What is a Keylogger? How does it work? and why do I care? The World of Warcraft forums are a good place to come if you need information about your class, spec, profession or just have questions about the game in general. Unfortunately, a long with the good information that can be found here, there are also "people" who post links to websites that may imitate a legitimate WoW related website, but actually have a hidden program that gets installed on your computer in the background, without your knowledge. These small programs or scripts are used to record any keystrokes that you make on the keyboard, and secretly send those recorded keystrokes to a person who will then use that information to gain illegal access to your WoW account, bank account, or any other sensitive information. People who have their accounts "hacked" in this manner, will find that when they log on to their characters they have been stripped of any and all gear, crafting materials, Bank contents liquidated, and all of their gold gone. The violated account will then be used to re-post more links to keylogger websites on the official WoW forums in an effort to perpetuate the problem. Eventually the account will be left with nothing more than naked toons, and in some cases the characters are deleted as well once the account has been banned from posting in the forums by the Blizzard Moderators. These hidden programs or scripts can be embedded, actually hidden inside the data of other types of files such as Pictures, movies, flash objects or malicious web pages. How do I know if a link is a Keylogger or not? Well, after you have seen a few of them, you start to notice a few different things that they all seem to have in common. First, most of the time keyloggers are some random topic or a link to some picture or web page that has NOTHING to do with WoW or the topic in which the link is posted. These links are usually accompanied by some random one line comment that makes little or no sense. Also most of the time these links are Chinese specific domains, such as: somedomain dot "cn". An example might look like: > "It's too good to be true!" (followed by a link to a picture) > "Naked woman caught by satellite!" (followed by a link to a picture or video, and a statement such as:"Don't be so relaxed while you are taking the sun naked in the garden of your house... Big brother could be watching you!!!)" > "NERF INC!" (followed by a link to a picture) > "Just Beautiful! (followed by a link to a picture) >"Huge Alliance raid on Halaa (w/ pics)" (with several links to pictures)** (See note below) >"Shapeshifting proposals (Again, with pics)" (with several links to pictures)** >"Hey Kalgan, we're fine!" (With links to several .php documents, Kalgan is/was a WoW Developer) >"#%!#!!ex Toy" (Links to videos embedded in PHP scripts, with a story about a "neglected" girlfriend) Also, some examples of websites that seem to be posted a bunch "look" like they are WOW related websites, but upon closer inspection they are actually not legit: -warldofwarcraft -worldofworceaft - mmosgame - warcraftmoviies (note the double "ii" in movies) - warcraftm0vies (note the Zero in place of an "o") ** "warcraftmovies" IS a legitimate website ** **Note** It seems that whoever is posting the Key Loggers has gotten a bit less lazy and actually put some scheme together that looks like a legit post. These posts are usually about some "proposal/suggestion or bug fix (note:these issues should only be reported in the Suggestions or Bug Reports forums, NOT in the Welcome/Beginners forum, so that's your first clue.)" or of a raid on a major city. Most recently is a raid on Halaa (the PVP objective in Nagrand, Outland), with several links to pictures of their "event or evidence". These links are hostile and will infect your system. If someone is legitimately posting up pictures of a raid, they will be active on the forums and will usually be willing to speak with you about the link in question, whereas a keylogger almost certainly won't respond.Baloo126 Apr 24
Aug 9 RAF & Recruitment Does NOT Belong Here (FAQ) I figured I'd nip this in the bud before it starts up in the new forum. Original post is copied from Munbar of Wyrmrest Accord, but I've expanded it. Q. My new RAF thread keeps getting locked, why? A. The New Player Help and Guides forum is no longer being used for RAF. Q. Why did my reroll/leveling partner post get deleted or moved? A. Because rerolls and "LF leveling partner" posts are deemed recruitment threads, and recruitment threads do not belong here. They belong in the realm forums or the guild recruitment forums. Q. But I'm not recruiting! A. In the eyes of the moderators, yes, you are. You're recruiting someone to reroll on a server or join you for leveling or meet in-game. Hence why the threads will be locked/deleted or moved to the appropriate forum. Posting on a realm forum has a better local audience for leveling partners anyway. Blue post: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/3123312367#7 ... ... Another blue post: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/2794651592#6 ... As one of our regulars Monmon so eloquently put it: ... Q. Where do I go to post my RAF or recruitment thread? A. You should head to either the realm forum of the realm you are planning on finding someone to RAF, or the guild recruitment forum on your faction. If you need something like charter signatures or other "local" hookups, go to your server forum. Q. But I'm on a trial account and can't post there! A. Cry me a river. You're still not allowed to post it here. Get an actual friend to recruit you rather than fishing for a stranger on the forums. Q. Why did they stop using the New Player Help and Guides forum? A. The RAF threads were reproducing so quickly that the forum was getting bogged down by the reposters and spam, detracting from the forum's original purpose, which is helping newbies with their WoW questions. RAF does -not- help new players, as the vast majority of RATS (recruit a total stranger) hookups fall through once the trial account is made, or the new player is left with little experience, gold, and the supposed "forum friend" ditches them readily. The forum regulars went on a crusade against the RAF spam, and we finally got Blizzard's attention. The mods have been quickly removing/locking the RATS threads, keeping the forum happy and clean. Q. What action will be taken against me if I keep posting in the New Player Help and Guides forum? A. Your forum account will likely be banned after repeatedly posting the same thread after it has been locked/deleted. Q. Where should I go to suggest a RAF forum? A. Head to the Website Feature Suggestion forum. (http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/1025939/) Q. Can I post in the General forum about RAF? A. As of now, this has been undecided, yet some people have been. It is recommended to go to the guild recruitment forum or realm forum. Q. When will a RAF forum or sticky be made? A. As of now Blizzard is not planning on making an RAF forum or stick. If you continue to suggest it in the Website Suggestions forum, this might change. Thank you for taking your time to read this, please go to the suggested forum stated above before posting your RAF and recruitment threads.Icedragon88 Aug 9
Dec 28 Better Living through Technology!(new2macros) *note: this guide is for people who haven't used macros or advanced keybinds and want to try. Macros are basically 'super buttons' that you can create in order to use multiple abilities and spells from the same button. This means even if you have 15 different abilities, you can key them all to 3-5 buttons. With macros you can do things like: 1) have all your buff spells on one button 2) 'hide' abilities that you don't use very often so they only show when you need them 3) 'group' similar abilities so that, for example, all your commonly used melee skills are on one button 4) maximize your rotation so that you're always one step ahead of the GCD Macros are great, but there are a few limitations: 1) complicated! -learning macros takes a good chunk of time. It's only something I've been able to do since my work gives me some 'free time' to cruise the UI/macro forum. 2) software limited -While very powerful, there is potential to abuse macros so that, for example, you could hit one button and your character would kill every mob in range (eventually). This potential for abuse has cause blizzard to put some powerful limitations on macros. More about this later. 3) the One Button rule -each macro button can use only one ability each time you press the button. You can code this so that it will use a different ability each and every time you press it (and on a different target!), but you can't press the button once and, for example, have it cast all 5 self buffs on you. I don't even know where to start?! To get started with macros, it's very simple. Just log on WoW and type /m. This brings up your macro box, where you just have to hit 'new' and the game will prompt for a name and an icon. I recommend that you leave the icon as a question mark. (?) The question mark means the game will automatically pick up the picture of the ability that the macro will use. My First Macro For your first macro lets just replace a normal ability you use on your bar in combat. I'm going to use paladin abilities here, but you can replace them with whatever ability you like. So to make my first macro, I went to the /m menu in game, picked a new macro, and gave it the question mark icon. Then I click on the icon, click on the empty box, and type: /cast This is the basic core of every macro. It's basically like the verb in a sentence. You can use different 'verbs' (called slash commands) but this is probably the most popular. Since I want this macro to cast Hammer of the Righteous, I simple type that in after the /cast. /cast Hammer of the Righteous And pow! I'm done! If you drag this onto your bar and hit it a million times, you basically have the paladin protection spec in a nutshell (lol). However this doesn't really give you any extra functionality over a normal keybind. The next thing I'm going to do is make the macro heal a friendly if I have a friendly targeted, or if it's an enemy it will use SotR (shield of the righteous). To do this you add a conditional. This says 'only cast this spell if 'X' is true.' It looks like this (with a breakdown of the macro underneath): /cast [help] Word of Glory; [harm] Shield of the Righteous \__/ \____/\__________/\/ \____/\__________________/ verb-conditional---|---separator|----------------| -------------------ability---------conditional----Ability What this macro will do is check the status of your current target. A 'friendly'(help) value will cause my paladin to heal the target. An 'enemy'(harm) value will trigger the attack ability. If you can grasp macros thus far, you've already learned enough to make macros useful for you. Putting this on your bar will basically cut the number of keybinds you need by 1. Modifier macro commands Another handy feature you can use with macros is called a Modifier. This may sound familiar but it's possible to set a macro so that it will use a different ability or spell if you hold down control, alt, or shift. Here's a basic example: /cast [mod:alt] Seal of Truth;[mod:ctrl] Blessing of Kings;[mod:shift] Righteous Fury; Seal of Insight If you had this macro bound to 1, and you press 1, it would cast Seal of truth (and the seal picture would be on the keybind). Pressin ctrl would change the icon to blessing of kings and would cast blessing of kings if you pressed ctrl-1, etc....Raygecow149 Dec 28
Feb 17 ======= Can't Find the Right Class/Race/Alt? ... ^ Is that big enough? If you're giving advice or answering these threads, see guidelines at the end of this guide. I'm a regular poster on this forum, and one of the most common threads is the classic "I don't know what class/race to be" thread. The main problem with these threads is that the original poster often doesn't give readers enough information to make any suggestions. Help us out, and we'll try to help you :) This is a guide on how to write a detailed "Help me find a class/race" thread. This is not a guide on how to find the right class/race...just on how to ask for help about it. Both sections here can have some gray area, so don't be afraid to give us more information. It's just that veteran WoW players usually know a bit more about the classes themselves so they have more background. They also know more terminology, so it's easier to interrogate them. NEW ADDITION: ICE'S CLASS/RACE SPINNERS! http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/2969/classspinner.jpg ... THINGS THAT DO NOT MATTER: Faction. All classes can be played on both factions. Survivability. Seriously, you can live to hit the level cap. All classes have this. PvP viability. Again, all classes have this. Doesn't matter unless you're twinking. Raid/group desirability. The only reason you'd be refused from a group is because 1) you're undergeared/bad or 2) they have a lot of that class already. Everyone is viable - DPS are balanced, healers are balanced, tanks are balanced. You want the "best" class/race combo. There isn't a best combo or a best class or a best race. It doesn't exist. Most OP (overpowered) class. Blizzard changes the class balance so much that leveling something purely to be "overpowered" is a futile idea. By the time you hit level cap, the balance would have shifted. Right now there ISN'T a super godly class anyway. Most fun class. I want a bumper sticker that says "Fun is subjective." What I think is fun might not be your cup of tea, so making a good suggestion for you based on "fun" isn't going to be accurate. Use this chart: low Impact on Performance high 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 class gear skill spec IF YOU'RE NEW TO THE GAME AND HAVE NEVER PLAYED: ---> OR HAVE NOT REACHED LEVEL 60 YET Do you want to have a permanent pet? Is a temporary one okay with you? Or does it not matter if you have a pet? Are you partial to cloth wearers or do you want a little more bulk in your armor? What have you played in other games before? Maybe you played a caster in another game and liked it, or have a fondness for barbarians/warriors. WoW might have a rough equivalent for you! Do you want to be able to heal yourself and others, or are you okay with lacking those spells? Which is your preference: attacking enemies from a distance or being up in their faces? Are you the sneaky type or do you take pleasure ripping out internal organs as a greeting right off the bat? Do you want to be on the front lines with a shield or watching over your group to keep them safe? Will you be leveling with a friend or mostly on your own? If you're doing it with a friend, what are they planning to level, or have they not decided yet? Have you read about classes at all yet? If so, what stands out as interesting to you? Have you tried any classes already? Are you interested in the lore or story of Warcraft? Some classes have a lot of easily-absorbed lore while others are a little "less detailed" in their history. Interested in roleplaying at all? This goes with the previous question, but some races/classes are easier to roleplay as a newbie than others (with lots of history to adhere to). Do any of the races stick out to you as being attractive? Not every race can be every class, so if you have an early favorite (or if you really dislike one in particular) this can narrow things down.Icedragon167 Feb 17

12m Third artifact slot / class hall dk i have to finish my class hall to unlock my third artifact slot. i have all my artifacts but want to unlock the third relic slot. The quest for my class hall at this point is "goddess watch over you". i've looked online and it seems that i have to complete the val'sharah quest line first, but it's not real clear. Is this true? If not what do i have to do to finish the "goddess is watching over you" quest. this is an alt i just want to use for the two free professions i got, so i want to do the minimum for the character.Fastanin0 12m

1h Dying again... and again... and again. I'm new to the game and am playing Alliance a PvP server. I'm trying to complete a few quests, one in contested territory. A few folks from the Horde seem to be guarding the quest turn in point. One of them is level 110 and killed me instantly. The graveyard is very close so I resurrected, but within a few seconds of resurrecting, I was killed again. And again. And again. By the SAME player. And then another one showed up. Someone please tell me there is more to this game? Is this behavior tolerated? What can I do?Reverendalex1 1h

You may find further information on this new update to the WoW Token System here! Trade a WoW Token for Battle.net Balance: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/20542016 *****Original Version of this Guide***** Hello to all new and veteran World of Warcraft Players! Welcome to my extensive guide regarding the new World of Warcraft Game Tokens! :-) Which Patch will World of Warcraft Game Tokens be released?: The World of Warcraft Game Tokens were launched in World of Warcraft on April, 7th, 2015. When will the Game Tokens be available to World of Warcraft Players?: Game Tokens started to roll out first on realms that are serving (North America, Oceania, and Latin America). After this it had become expanding to other regions in weeks after the release of Game Tokens on North American Realms. What is the cost for World of Warcraft Game Tokens?: The cost right now announced by Blizzard in their Official Blog is $20.00 for their North American, Oceania and Latin American realms. For other regions more information on pricing was announced on the appropriate World of Warcraft website for each region. Where can I purchase the World of Warcraft Game Token?: You can purchase the WoW Game Token from the in-game shop. If you choose to purchase it for usage on your Battle.net Account from the Auction House there will be a new tab called "Game Time". WoW Tokens will be listed at a base price of 30,000 gold. However note though that the price for WoW Tokens can go below 30,000 gold or climb up in price. Prices are based on demand for these tokens. How much times may you use the WoW Game Token?: You may use the token ONLY on the Auction House! Once it's sold it is Soul Bound to the buyer and can only be used (1) time to redeem for game time for your World of Warcraft account. Once sold as well the seller will receive the gold they sold it for! Can I set my own price for the token when selling on the Auction House?: At this time, Blizzard has stated upon listing it onto the Auction House, A pre-set price determined by Blizzard will be the listing price. This price may go up or down pending on the sale(s) of the WoW Token in each region. You cannot at this time set your own personal price for the WoW Token! The current price you sell the WoW Game Token for in the Auction House is set at 30,000 gold. However note though that the price for WoW Tokens can go below 30,000 gold or climb up in price. Prices are based on demand for these tokens. May I buy the token if my account is inactive?: YES! The option to purchase the token will additionally be on the character select menu if your character has the gold to purchase them. May I purchase the WoW Token with my local currency?: Tokens can only be purchased in US currency at the moment. If the system is trying to use Euros, For example, it's not going to go through - or indeed, give you that option. Will Recruit a Friend Work with these tokens?: YES! They will count just like game cards for your friend you recruited! I'm getting a grey button that states "Not enough Gold", But I'm certain I got the correct amount. What does this mean?: You would get this error in question if you have enough gold if there is not enough World of Warcraft Tokens for sale on the market. In this case, Please try again later when more are in-stock. Is there a limit of WoW Tokens I may purchase per month to sell?: Yup. The limit you may sell is capped at (10) tokens every (7) days. I spent the correct amount of gold, But did not receive the token? What do I do?: Blizzard is aware of this bug and the developers have announced that the gold spent would be returned to the person(s) that purchased the token off the Auction House! You should expect it to return via in-game mail. When buying a token can I use gold from both factions?: Yes. You may purchase the token using gold from both your Alliance and Horde characters! Please note though that the gold pulled from your character(s) all come from the same realm the character(s) are on. You cannot pull gold from multiple realms at this time! May I purchase tokens using my Battle.net Balance?: Yes, If you have the sufficient funds you will be able to!

3h Mounts before level 20?? Hey all, I often see low-level players with mounts in starting areas. How is this achieved? Is it some type of special perk? Thanks!Marsyas16 3h
3h Action Bar - Weapons Hi - I'm new to WOW and need some help. Somehow, I replaced my longstaff with a pair of boots (on the Action Bar) and I do not have a similar weapon in my bag. It's kind of hard to battle someone with a pair of boots. Is there a fix to this or do I go back to square one and start over? Thanks.Roldenah6 3h
4h Need help choosing a class. Do you want to have a permanent pet? Is a temporary one okay with you? Or does it not matter if you have a pet? Having a permanent pet sounds kind of cool, but ultimately, it's not really a deal breaker one way or the other. I would kind of like to have a pet of some kind, though. Are you partial to cloth wearers or do you want a little more bulk in your armor? Having cool looking armor is definitely a plus, but again, doesn't really make a difference either way. What have you played in other games before? Maybe you played a caster in another game and liked it, or have a fondness for barbarians/warriors. WoW might have a rough equivalent for you! In past games I've played, I've always really enjoyed being able to solo if I need to. Do you want to be able to heal yourself and others, or are you okay with lacking those spells? I'm fine without healing spells. Which is your preference: attacking enemies from a distance or being up in their faces? A hybrid of the two would be ideal, but I'm not even sure if that exists. If I had to choose one or the other, I would probably go for melee. (I think) But I'm still open to the idea of ranged damage. Are you the sneaky type or do you take pleasure ripping out internal organs as a greeting right off the bat? In past games I've never really gone with the stealth route, but mostly because it wasn't ever really that viable. If sneaking is a viable tactic, I could see it being interesting, but it's hard to beat "ripping out internal organs as a greeting right off the bat". Do you want to be on the front lines with a shield or watching over your group to keep them safe? I guess I would go with front lines, but mostly because I think I'll be doing a lot of soloing. I enjoy grouping, but it is definitely secondary. Will you be leveling with a friend or mostly on your own? If you're doing it with a friend, what are they planning to level, or have they not decided yet? Mostly on my own, but occasionally grouping if possible. Have you read about classes at all yet? If so, what stands out as interesting to you? Have you tried any classes already? I have read a bit. I'm interested in druids for their versatility, rogues (mostly outlaw), and shamans. I have tried a druid, but only reached level 10 so far. Are you interested in the lore or story of Warcraft? Some classes have a lot of easily-absorbed lore while others are a little "less detailed" in their history. Lore and story is all a secondary concern to me. Not a big deal at all, but I'll probably check it out as I go. Interested in roleplaying at all? This goes with the previous question, but some races/classes are easier to roleplay as a newbie than others (with lots of history to adhere to). Not really. Do any of the races stick out to you as being attractive? Not every race can be every class, so if you have an early favorite (or if you really dislike one in particular) this can narrow things down. Race really doesn't matter to me so much. I plan to just pick my race after I decide on my class. Although, I'll probably be a Horde race, as the realm I've chosen is like 95% horde. As a final comment, the main thing I want out of a class is to not feel limited. I'm 100% new to WOW and I'd love to play a class that isn't limiting at all and will allow me to experience everything the game has to offer.Kraizen0 4h
12h Rebooting the cleaner: Return to Karazhan Is there any way to solo this quest? i finished all the bosses except maiden but i can't just enter to the Curator ,coz NPCs re spawn after i get the quest , Help for this quest series pleaseMamaminozz1 12h
12h Quests involving the Lich King I'm doing quests in Northrend and was wondering, do most of the quests that involve the Lich King start in Ice Crown or Storm Peaks? Right now, I'm doing some with gnomes in the Tundra area, but going to move to Dragon Blight. Haven't seen too much with the Lich King yet, just 1 cutscene from the quest where you help this lady find where her brother disappeared to. I'm already 75, so probably going to outlevel Northrend before I finish them all, but would like to stay and see the story around the Lich King. So are there any areas/quests I could skip if I just wanted to do the ones that deal directly with the Lich King? Do I need to do the ones in Zul'Drak and Storm Peaks to lead up to the Lich King fight or can I just wait till 78 and move to Ice Crown? Also, I saw a video once where it showed the Lich King with a yellow exclamation point, like he was a quest giver. Does he give a quest in Ice Crown? Do you get to interact with him more when you start doing Ice Crown quests? Thanks in advance!Axandria8 12h

1d question about weapon speed how does weapon speed work with dual wielding? I've got a weapon that has lower base dmg but way faster atk speed is it worth switching out if youre dual wielding?Greenfrenzy4 1d
1d Heartbroken... (Challenge Warlord Gold) I feel heartbroken. As an outsider looking in via Twitch and youtube, I admired some of the 'transmogs' that I had seen from various Wow players. Big flaming swords and badazz armor. When I finally had the chance to devote some time to playing wow, I had some of those looks in mind. Going back to the big flaming sword that I had envisioned, the Greatsword of Inferno... I just found out that after 7.0.0 released, they took away the achievement that let you purchase this and other gear. So, for all of us who started wow during Legion we cannot get this among other awesome gear appearances. (At least to my knowledge, please advise if this isn't true). I'm completely feelsbadman right now. My question now is, how much transmog gear is off limits to wow newbies like myself?Saiyanbrycey3 1d

2d New casual mature player looking for a guild Hello! I here looking for a casual, mature guild. I am older, in the 30's. Started playing WOW and now I'm having a ton of fun. Looking to get into PvE, learn how to dungeon, and quest and leveling. I have a full time job, family to take care of, and go to school full time. So this is my way of getting away from it all to have fun. Or any suggestions on guilds will be appreciatedGabenel3 2d
2d Question about the hearthsteed I'm sure there are thousands of threads like these, but i'm a bit overwhelmed with all the info i've been reading. So i started WoW again a couple of days ago, i'm a relatively new player. I went through the hearthstone tutorial in my old account so i have a very basic grasp of what the game is about, i also played Yugioh about 12 years ago, but i've been reading on the hearthstone PVP and it seems like you need to spend some cash to get a chance. I don't really want to get into Hearthstone that much but i'm wondering, is it possible to win the matches for the hearthsteed with the basic cards? Also in the store i see the items "hearthstone welcome bundle" and more card packs for the expansions, i'm wondering if i should buy any of those to get a chance at winning. Thanks in advance!Folriav5 2d
2d Old new player hoping for an info dump. So I've played wow off and on since vanilla release date but I have never really gotten into the advanced aspects of the game, like raids, dungeons, pvp, professions, garrison, and just about everything else. I'm hoping for an info dump, not a jump start. Just information for what I should aim for and what things are. I've been trying to navigate wowhead and wowpedia but the information there seems either outdated, includes outdated information, or is jumbled with a bunch of other generic stuff (like all possible things a profession can make). 1. What mounts, in all, offer unique aspects? For instance, I have the Grand Expedition Yak and it offers two additional seats and they come occupied with transmog and vendor. There is also the X53 Touring Rocket that comes from RAF and allows you to carry another person and the water strider that walks on water. What other mounts offer unique aspects like these? 2. What toys offer unique utility or use? For instance, the Alterac Brew Pup I consider one of these since it gives you an item. Findle's L-a-R loots corpses but is now limited to Draenor. 3. What do professions, both crafting and gathering, offer? I know basic stuff like gathering offers a source of income but what little I know makes me want engineer for all of my characters (L-a-R, mobile vendors/portals, etc). 4. Is there a way to make my chat logs global, so I don't have to customize them for each and every character with each and every little detail?Natharia14 2d
2d No missions; why? I have four toons, and my new priest has no Class Hall Missions for his Followers to run. One a day is available, as most. Every day there are long periods with none at all. This is the first time this has happened to a toon of mine, and has been true for several days. Why no missions?Gymlea3 2d
2d How to subscribe to a thread? Hello all, I recently started trying roleplaying and reading discussions on battle.net forums really helped me a lot. Is it possible for me to subscribe to a thread so that I will be notified of new posts? I cannot find any option to manually subscribe to a thread. Will replying to a thread automatically subscribe me to it? Thank you.Serenum2 2d
3d Finding a Guild LF guild - it's been hard to find a Shadow Council, Alliance, laid back, mature, not totally into raiding - just fun, friends, help, questing, dungeons and raids guild. I've been on Internet sites recommended for this kind of search for about 2 hours at this point and everything I find is out dated or looking for hard-core raiders. I don't RP, but when my sons started me on WoW they put me on their server - not sure I want to change as they are talking about coming back and playing again.Liadariel4 3d
3d GRIND REP BEFORE STARTING WQ AGAIN? DO I NEED TO GET REPUTATION WITH ALL THE CITIES BEFORE STARTING WORLD QUESTS AGAIN? I have 3 level 110's on a server and after grinding rep on my first char, I was able to do world quests. After leveling my second and third chars to 110, I didn't have to go through the process of grinding rep; I could already begin world quests right after hitting level 110. My characters are all Alliance, but recently I made a Horde character on the same server and I'm close to hitting 110. I'm wondering if I still need to grind out rep again or if after hitting 110 I can start world quests right away. Anyone experience this or have knowledge of this?Ieaf1 3d
4d Are all warriors Tanks? Mr. Tealeaf likes to play tanks, and thus has a couple of warriors he's working on (along with a few other tank friendly classes). The question has come up, can all the warrior specs be tanks? I know that Protection tanks surely are, but what about Fury or Arms? Can any of these confidently check the "Tank" role in the dungeon finder? Also, from what we've played, it seems that warriors are expect to carry a shield in a dungeon no matter their spec. Is this correct?Teapray5 4d
4d Why is wow gametime token so expensive ?? I don't play a lot as I use too. A few months ago I purchased a wow game time token for 20,000 g for a month of game time which I thought was fair. So today I decided I would purchase another to get back into the game, and I was shocked to see its now 40,000!! WTF! Shame on you Blizz.Jenzun20 4d
4d Progress offline I am playing my first character. I have some time during the day that I can't play wow but I have access to a phone or another PC. What do you suggest me to do so that I can be more effective while playing or make progress offline? I have already read character guides and basic newbie guides.Bopi1 4d

4d Learning the Ropes battle pet quest. How do I get my pet in a fight? I right click on animals that have a green paw indicator and nothing happens. I'm a free trial user, is the disabled for us?Stabbath11 4d
4d Help for chose main class Do you want to have a permanent pet? Is a temporary one okay with you? Or does it not matter if you have a pet? I dont care much for a pet Are you partial to cloth wearers or do you want a little more bulk in your armor? I prefer bulky amor to be able tu sustain more damage What have you played in other games before? Maybe you played a caster in another game and liked it, or have a fondness for barbarians/warriors. WoW might have a rough equivalent for you! I have played and enjoyed most mmo generic classes except healer Do you want to be able to heal yourself and others, or are you okay with lacking those spells? I will be mostly soloing so dont care much about healing others. I like a way to be able to survive combat, either healing myself or if there is another method I am fime with it Which is your preference: attacking enemies from a distance or being up in their faces? Being up in their faces Are you the sneaky type or do you take pleasure ripping out internal organs as a greeting right off the bat? I dont have the patience to be sneaky, I want to jump directly to the fight Do you want to be on the front lines with a shield or watching over your group to keep them safe? I prefer in the front lines, but I prefer worhout a shield, the more dps the better :) Will you be leveling with a friend or mostly on your own? If you're doing it with a friend, what are they planning to level, or have they not decided yet? I will be mostly soloing Have you read about classes at all yet? If so, what stands out as interesting to you? Have you tried any classes already? The ones that stand out for me are melee dps: ret pally, fury warrior, feral druid, frost dk Are you interested in the lore or story of Warcraft? Some classes have a lot of easily-absorbed lore while others are a little "less detailed" in their history. Not really interested Interested in roleplaying at all? This goes with the previous question, but some races/classes are easier to roleplay as a newbie than others (with lots of history to adhere to). Nope Do any of the races stick out to you as being attractive? Not every race can be every class, so if you have an early favorite (or if you really dislike one in particular) this can narrow things down. I prefer alliance and a big fellow, not a gnomeBopi6 4d
4d How do you unlock class order hall features? So last night I got high enough to proc the legion starter quest and got up to having retrieved my artifact spec weapon and got shown the chose your zone board but after that the order hall features never showed up. Was wondering what I have to do to unlock the other features, and if it requires doing broken isles stuff since quest wise I'm still only near the end of BC content.Desanvos3 4d
5d Which Specialization to choose? Hey everyone. I just now reached level 10 and an option for class specialization just popped out. I am confused, as to which one i should choose. I think i might prefer damage, but might as well ask the same in the forums. Also once selected, can this be changed at a later stage.Barzertlok7 5d
5d Guide me I've been playing for a month plus now and got a general feeling for the game, so i went ahead and bought legion, DH is really fun and i really enjoy the gameplay, but i noticed that i also got that lvl 100 boost, which i suppose i should use on a 60+lvl to get profession leveled too, so which would be the most useful class and professions to upgrade? to make it easier to level other char and make them more powerful? i suppose jewler or enchanting and inscription? its a preety noob question but i would enjoy a few tips, also im looking for a guild, a populated one pls, guilds with 4 members online is like having no guildAstrallavi5 5d
5d How viable is it to play the 3 specs? As you can see I'm a monk, so I have the option to play the 3 roles. I heard that if you're playing very hard content, for example mythic raids, any extra artifact level you can get adds up, which means it would be recommended to focus on one spec. However, I have very little time to play, I won't be able to be that hardcore so I want all the fun my class has to offer. Is it viable to have my 3 specs to a certain level that will allow me to perform well up to heroic difficulty? Especially now that they announced an enhancement in the artifact system. I want the versatility but I'm afraid to feel week because I didn't focus all my points in one spec.Weissrunner6 5d
5d Looking for a friend to play with New to wow. Want a buddy to help me and make my time with WOW enjoyable. Battletag is AntiFun#11243 I wouldn't mind making a new character on any relm.Gorganus3 5d
6d Socketed Gear Hi, so recently I got back into WoW and haven't played it since BC where the end game was socketed gear. Now I've made it past that point and I'm pushing into the WotLK content. My gear with lower ilevels with sockets seems to be so much better than the gear from quests and new instances because of the bonuses. Should I be getting new gear at these levels at a steady pace or is it normal for there to be some time after the BC content until a marksmanship hunter gets new equipment?Bonhomie4 6d
6d Personal Resource Display Style I've found and been using the Personal Resource Display feature, and I like it a lot, but I noticed it is different on different characters. I was wondering if there was a setting I could mess with to change this. http://imgur.com/a/WpCp7 I like the Death Knight one and want it like that on my Rogue If there are no settings I was hoping maybe I could do it through an addon. I know that Weak Auras does stuff like that, and you can link things to your Personal Resource display with it, albeit complicatedly. But I don't know if you can create your own. (One that moves on the screen similar to the in game Personal Resource Display.)Grozon0 6d
6d Death knight vs Warrior overview? New to the game and have only been around for 3 months. I'm trying to get a handle on classes still and having trouble figuring out where death knights and warriors stand so I can decide which to main. Both are pretty fun. I would like to dps and tank in plate armor as a worgen so that's how I ended up between these two. Since things are changing so much with patches I'm honestly a bit lost on the differences between these two classses and how they look in raids or even PvP. Some stuff I look up feels outdated. Anyone mind helping me compare the two for where they sit currently in the meta?Summerhill9 6d
6d What should i focus on? Hi, i never played wow before, complete noob, all i been doing so far is quest after quest alone and from there i get equip. i want to make friends so am not so alone in the game. will friends pop up in later quests? i am completely new to this gaming stuff sorry and thanks edited to add battle tag Shadowkz #11179Craban14 6d
