New Player Help and Guides

May 19, 2016 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 ( and guidelines ( 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 (, 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,, 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.

2d 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. 2d
Apr 14 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: 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).

Apr 15 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: 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!Cerylia992 Apr 15
Mar 9 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: 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, 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: 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: 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: 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.Frejya113 Mar 9
Apr 24, 2016 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 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, 2016
Mar 15 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: ... ... Another blue post: ... 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. ( 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.Icedragon89 Mar 15
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
May 5 ======= 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! ... 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.Icedragon168 May 5

1h is there a way to "go back in time/levels"? I started wow 2 days ago when I was introduced to it by my boyfriend and I reached level 15 through quests. He told me to do some dungeons with him. I had no idea what those were but I did like three and I went from level 15 to level 26 in like 15 minutes lmao. Now I'm hit with a tonnn of new features (ex. guilds) and I have no idea what any of these means. This kind of ruins the experience because now I have all these things I don't understand, I can't do any quests as they are too low level, everything just feels overwhelming and out of track Is there a way where I can un level or something, or like go back to a certain level, to where I was before?Hemziie6 1h
1h Question regarding auto-attacks. Sorry, I'm new to WoW, as well as MMOs in general, and have a rather silly question to ask: how do I avoid having to right click to start my autoattack? I've made a DH, and as I'm using demon blades need to be using my autoattack, but how can I initiate my autoattack without right clicking or initiating with another attack?Akryan1 1h
2h Help with my garrison I'm not a new player, but I am new to the garrisons- I'm just starting to explore mine. I'm trying to find my stables as I'd like to earn myself some of the mounts, but I can't find it. I found my flightmaster just outside the barracks/lumber mill, and I thought the stables would be near there. But I've actually looked all over my garrison and there are no stables. Any help anybody might be able to give would be greatly appreciated :) Thank you!Aetheryal1 2h
10h How to Gamepad Hello There seems to be alot of questions on this subject and not many answers. I figured I would make at least a basic guide and spare people an hour of headache. If people show enough interest I will come back later and edit this to be a little more formal of a guide as well as update it. Why use a gamepad? I find that alot of people are resistant to this subject because they believe that using a gamepad limits them to four hotkeys. Not true in my case. In my case with a little tinkering I am able to use up to 48 hotkey buttons without touching a mouse. Also employing the use of two joysticks in fact seems to make it much easier to move around. That circle of death is just not as annoying to me anymore. Also I personally find that it's actually easier for me to access a vast amount of keys with this method far more efficiently then if I were to use a keyboard. The trade off is that it requires a bit of muscle memory. Which means a bit more practice. But overall it makes game play far more stimulating. Including grinding. How can you replace a mouse? Every now and then your going to have to still use a mouse. However generally speaking you can deal with most of functions of a mouse with macros. Getting a controller Currently I am working off of an old PS2 controller. Just remember that you don't need to buy a state of the art gamepad. If you already have a controller for a console system then in most cases you should be able to use it on a computer though you may have to fork over a small amount for an adapter if the controller is not wireless. Most of the instructions can be found by a simple google or youtube search. Getting a controller to work with wow Alright. Now to the most frustrating part of all of this. How to actually get a controller to work in wow. I personally use a program called neodelight joystick plugin. What this does is binds your buttons to set keyboard keys. Three key things about using this program. 1. You cannot use it without a controller plugged in. 2. There is a preferences tab to the right. Click that to enable the sticks. Also turn the sensitivity down a little. 3. This program will give you the option of making a button press more than one key. Make sure you don't a button doing the same key twice. How to configure the Gamepad To give you a template, this is how I set it up. Left analog stick = W,A,S,D Right stick = Q,E and -10 mouse wheel 10 mouse wheel X =1 Square = 2 Circle = 3 Triangle = 4 L2 = Tap R2 = Shift L1 = Ctrl R1 = Alt Select = M L3 = Space R3 = Left Mouse click Keyboard Config. 1=Ctrl1 2=Ctrl2 3=Ctrl3 4=Ctrl4 5=1 6=2 7=3 8=4 9=alt1 0=alt2 -=alt3 ==alt4 Also note that pressing shift + 1,2,3,4 will take you to different action bars. You will note that I put ctrl before regular numbers. The reason I did this is because the ctrl set is on the left bumper so instead of confusing the brain plain numbers are in the center and bumpers take it left or right. You will also notice that the L3 button uses the left click. In order to avoid using the mouse constantly, level outs the horizon to ever so slightly looking downward and place the cursor at level with your characters feet or legs. This will make it easy to click everything easy to click. Macros Using macros for me is still a work in progress. If I find a good macro or see a good macro then I will update the post later on. The only one I can really say I've got down is the questing macro which I will give you all. /script SelectGossipAvailableQuest(1) /script AcceptQuest() /script SelectGossipActiveQuest(1) /script CompleteQuest() /script GetQuestReward(1)Faeron11 10h
12h How to unlock artifact trait 35? I have unlocked all 34 traits on my frost artifact. I received a quest from Khadgar to "unlock all traits". I have enough AP to unlock another trait. But I have no idea how to do it. At the forge, only the usual 34 show up. Any tips here?Soku2 12h
14h Is there a way to create waypoints? I'm having trouble finding some locations because they do not show on the map and was wondering if i can set a waypoint on the map manually? it would certainly help me find things when i loose them. :oWhipp19 14h
1d My pet won't follow me? I bought a pet a few minutes ago(Lil' Ragnaros). When I equip him, he will not follow me when I start to move. He just stays in the same spot in which I have equipped him. Also, it says "Cayennedecay's Companion", not "Cayennedecay's Pet" What do I need to do to get him to follow me? Or did I !@#$ up and not get the right thing? LolCayennedecay2 1d
1d False advertising I'm in silithus and i accept some quests that say they give me 26,000 xp. I am really excited because thats kind of a lot for me at level 54. so i complete them and then when i turn them in i only get 8,750 xp. Why? my dream have been crushed. is there an explanation for this?Cornycash2 1d
1d Quest paths for each race. So I noticed on my Orc and Troll characters that they both, after completing their opening areas, ended up reaching Razor Hill. Now they've both currently got the same quests lined up to do without any variation at all. This is a little worrying, as I don't want to get bored or burnt out on either of those characters from doing the same quests over a second time. So I've got a few questions about this. First, do they ever branch off again at some point? Or are my Troll and Orc destined to travel down the same path, visit the same areas, and do all the exact same quests for the remainder of the game? Second, which other races (On Horde and Alliance side) get paired up and eventually pushed to the same place to do all the same quests? Third and last, does it eventually reach the point that all races are doing the same quests? I assume so at least with end game content type stuff, but I cant say for sure or how soon it would come.Alcodes5 1d

2d Canceled Auction Item Missing I tried, for the first time, to create an auction for a glyph that I created. This was at an auction house. I dropped the item, set the price and created the auction. No problem. But then I realized that I had stacked 17 when I meant to sell them individually. So I immediately canceled the auction. It removed it from my active listings, but I can't find the item in my inventory. It's not in the bank either. Is this a glitch or will it appear in my inventory after a while? Thanks!Linasha8 2d
2d Is there a physically simple class please. Hello thanks for reading. I just bought the game last night for 9.99 and I have been trying out classes. Most only have 2 things on the action bar but I looked at the spell books and can't figure out which classes have the fewest buttons. I have a condition where my nervous system acts slowly. I can move but it takes a little longer. I hope to play with others and be able to contribute which is important to me. Thanks again.Moofee4 2d
3d Best Hunter Spec for PvE Dungeons and Raids? Just wondering what the best spec is to do dps in dungeons. I'm always hearing that hunters are terrible and I was thinking of just rolling a mage or something. Also, tanks keep getting mad at me because my pet keeps aggroing. Is there any way I can make my pet not do that? I put him as ferocity does that fix that?Kevenfu9 3d
3d DK and Professions So I am pretty new to the game and people have been saying the real game only starts at level 100. Though there are a few questions I do have. 1. So does this mean I need to run all the low level areas to raise my profession skills for harvesting? Or are there high level zones that lets me mine low level goods also? If I have to do low level zones - how do you reccomend going about it in the least boring way possible? Or should I do 2 production professions and use normal characters to farm for it? 2. Is Jewel Crafting worth it anymore? Two jobs I never see anyone recommend anymore are Jewel Crafting and Inscription. Everyone seems to always recommend Blacksmithing and Skinning, Leather working and Engineering and Alchemy Herbalism. 3. The DK main base where you portal to doesn't seem to sell single handed rune swords. Only two handed ones. Are there single handed rune swords ( that style ) or am I out of luck? An just need to do dungeons to hope to get some fancy single handed swords for a Frost DK? Thanks in advance.Kavmorin5 3d
3d New Player, LF friends/nice people Hi, I decided to come back and start playing wow. I last played in the pandarian expansion but didn't play that much, I only got to max level with my buddy, bought some heirlooms and quit. And now i decided to come back, but only this time I will try to make friends. I am playing as an human wizard this time, In Stormrage. If you too playing in stormrage as an alliance, doesn't matter what level hit me up. Or if you are just recruiting to a guild my BN account is - HappyFeetu#1798Puregains0 3d
4d Is it me or do I have bad luck with PUGs? Hello! I'm fairly new to WoW, as I've been playing for about 5ish months, and I have questions about running dungeons with PUGs and my healing output. This is my main and highest level character. I started leveling her as a balance druid, mostly through questing, before I started running dungeons. After a month or so, I switched my spec to Restoration to focus on healing. I use several websites to be knowledgeable about spell rotation and the like, but I feel like lately I've been having difficulties occasionally with groups from the dungeon finder. I'd say 70% of the time, I can run dungeons with a PUG just fine. Minimal casualties, I heal rapidly, and best of all, no one is spamming me to heal them in chat. However, it's really frustrating the other 30% of the time when people are dying constantly, the other members are taking damage faster than I can heal, and they start harassing me in chat. Most of the time, I'm truly trying my best. I'm not intentionally letting people die, but when they start berating me about how I'm healing, I'm tempted most of the time to just leave the group, because 9 times out of 10, they're being a real jerk about it. I'm not saying that I can't handle people being mean to me. I can put on my big girl pants and take it. I'm mostly just worried that I'm not doing as good of a job as I think I am. An example from earlier: I queued for a random dungeon as a healer, and immediately was put into a group for Abyssal Halls. Things were going fine for the first 10 minutes before we lost the tank on the elevator part, and a DPS ran on and pulled the mobs before the rest of the group was ready and before I could cast any spells. They started spamming me to heal them in chat. Then, when they died, they told me to just "do your job and cast spells" even though I was casting and trying to heal them. It was like this the entire dungeon, and literally as I was about to leave the group because I was tired of them yelling at me, I was kicked. I immediately queued up again for another dungeon, was again placed into Abyssal Halls, but this time there was only one death, and we made it through in about 15 minutes. No yelling, no problems casting spells, and no issues with continuous dying. Is it me? Am I the problem? Or do I just have bad luck when it comes to these things? Thanks in advance. DANG, sorry that this was so long winded.Miraszune9 4d
4d Normal quests only showing up as "trivial"? Hey everyone, I just got to Northrend on this character today and went straight to the Howling Fjord instead of questing through Borean Tundra. When I got to the Taunka village I initially thought there were no quests there beause nothing displayed on the mini map or above their heads, but then when I hovered over the NPCs the quest exclamation mark popped up with my cursor and I actually was able to take quests. Then I noticed that when I clicked "show trivial quests" on the minimap options, the quests appeared above their heads and on the mini map as translucent exclaimation points, which I've only ever seen when I was significantly outleveled for a quest. When I untick the "show trivial quests" option, they all disappear again. Any ideas what is causing this or how I could fix it? ThanksKunakte6 4d
5d Un-Soulbounding items? I got this robe yesterday in a dungeon, and since I'm a hunter I was going to mail it to my mage, and I got it before I knew it would be soulbound. Is there a way to un-soulbound an item?Galarrus11 5d
5d I own Cata but still can't fly I own Cataclysm, and bought the Flight Master's License in-game, but I still cannot fly in the "old world" (Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, etc). I can fly in Outland, but not in the previously mentioned locations. All the forums I checked the problem was that the person did not have Cata, but I bought a Battle Chest that included it, and I even double checked to make sure I have it. What could be causing this and what are some potential solutions?Canthsong5 5d
5d Most "in demand" class/spec at max level? Hi everyone, I'm returning to WoW after giving it a shot previously but never making it to end-game. I would always get buyer's remorse about classes I picked, and end up recreating after just a little while. I want to make a commitment to stick to and learn one class this time around. My question is just simple: are there any classes/specs that are often wanted/needed at max level, but aren't seen as much as they should be? I know tanks and healers are in demand while leveling, but given how few spots there are for them in raids, is this the case at max level? I've heard ranged DPS is preferred over melee DPS as well. I'm willing to put time into learning anything. I'm just looking for some feedback on a spec that I could focus on and feel rewarded later on for playing it. Thanks!Caeloh2 5d
5d 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.Jenzun33 5d
5d New Player... Confused I guess. Hey guys so im newer to wow. I guess my question is... what do you do in wow? I guess ill level with questing and dungeons. Do i do raids along the way? What do I do at max level? Is the goal to just max character gear level? If so how does that work. I guess im just confused on the overall goal as a player in wow. ps. if the answers vary, I prefer pve not pvp. Current server is acually rp moonguardCodith8 5d

6d How does Mob Tagging work? I don't really understand how this works. Logging in one of the tips says something like "don't be afraid to help another player out, you will both get loot and credit for the kill". Yet, even though I'm the first person to get a hit on a mob, others, usually with a much higher ilevel, come along and hit the mob, it grays out and I don't get credit or loot. Is it more about how much damage you do or ? Forgive me if this is a dumb question, I haven't played for 6 years and don't remember how this workedJayaji6 6d

May 21 Search for like minded people Hey all, I'm on the Dalaran server, I am new to WoW but not to gaming : ). Right now I am a lower level but i have a plan for my Night Elf Priest and i am searching for people that share the same like minded views that I do. I want to start a guild with friends that I have been questing with and that I trust. I've been looking in game but it's not going so well for me : (. Anyway, if you have a kind personality and don't mind someone that talks a lot (that would be me :P) that I would like to sit down at an Inn that isn't so crowded with trade talk and have a drink, then maybe hit up a few quests and see if we battle well together. Oh, and they guild I want to start is something that I want to be great, I want the Guild name to known and talked highly about one day, so I would really need people that are willing to put in the effort to help me with that. So if you like what you have read so far add my battle Tag and lets chat. Tyonca#1375 Thanks for reading, SinshellaSinshella2 May 21
May 21 Any reason to level cooking? I've just reached Northrend. I'm at the point where every recipe I find I cannot use because my cooking level is not high enough. Yet all of my existing available recipes are green or grey so I get no additional points from cooking them. I could probably do the cooking dailies to to level up a bit more, but now I'm starting to wonder... as a dwarf priest is there any good reason to level cooking at all? I don't really enjoy it, while on the other hand, I really enjoy fishing and whenever I fly over a school, I stop to fish it a bit.Reverendalex7 May 21
May 21 Questing confusion So I was doing all my quests in this area right and all of a sudden they all lead me to a dungeon called dire maul. Is this supposed to happen? there is no way I am expected to solo a dungeon like that. I am just confused because before I was on a chain of quests leading me to other areas with more quests and so on. but now I have done every quest in this area I'm at and now left with nothing but these dire maul quests. The quests didnt lead me to a new questing area.Cornycash6 May 21

May 20 Forsaken Mistweaver: pros and cons? I have one Alliance (Night Elf Priest) and one Horde (Forsaken Monk) character to get a fuller view of the game. Both let me heal or dps, and monk also lets me try tanking if I ever feel like giving that a go. So I did some searches. I wondered what people thought of (Forsaken) Mistweavers as I am used to healing classes, but as the game has changed so have views and playstyles: (Jul 7, 2013) (Jul 27, 2015) (Nov 11, 2015) I guess the fistweaving/mistweaving toggle for DPS vs. HPS that the class once apparently had is gone and punching people isn't as much of a thing now for healer specs. But, what do experienced players think of MWs as healers? Easier or harder to play than other classes? Better for PvP or PvE? Do Forsaken racials make a difference (saw something that said it works well but that might be outdated)? I will play the character until it stops being fun or I find something more fun, but where would you say a Forsaken Mistweaver is right now in the current patch in terms of playability, power, and cool-move/animation/theme factor? Thanks for sharing your thoughts!Qoath5 May 20
May 20 Onyx Eggs I've been working on the Cloud Serpent Reputation lately. Mostly this involves going to the Isle of Winds and fighting Sauroks, although there have been some other types of Quests mixed in. Anyway, in a previous thread, someone told me to be sure to collect any black eggs I find there. And one of the Quest-Givers has on a couple of occasions told me to bring back any onyx eggs, which I assume are the same thing. (This is not part of any Quest she has given me. It's just something she mentions after I turn a Quest in.) I've been doing these Dailies for more than a week now, and I still haven't come across a single onyx egg. There are plenty of dark blue or purplish ones, but they can't be picked up, so I know they're not the ones. I first assumed that the eggs were just really rare. But now I'm wondering if maybe I haven't been looking in the right places. There is another part of the island that I've been ignoring. It seems to be populated with tigers and non-hostile Sprites. I went there once, but since it didn't seem to have any Sauroks to kill or anything Cloud Serpent-related that I could see, I've just ignored it since. I didn't see any eggs there, either, but as I said, I only went there once. It also occurred to me that maybe the onyx eggs all spawn at a specific time, and that other players find them all long before I go to the island each day. I'm already halfway through Revered. It just seems weird that something designed to speed up the Reputation would be so rare that you could get most of the way through the Reputation without ever finding it.Kyniska25 May 20
May 20 10 years off - Need a change IF YOU'RE A VETERAN AND HAVE PLAYED EXTENSIVELY: ---> OR HAVE LEVELED PAST 60 What have you played before? My most committed toon was a human rogue. I've delved in others, mage, warlock, hunter, etc. How far did you level it? Rogue was 60. Others were no higher than 40s Describe what you liked and disliked about those classes. Be detailed! I guess what I liked about the rogue was the swiftness, if that makes sense? I liked killing mobs quick. Fairly easy to use, at least at the time I thought so lol. I liked being able to avoid mobs by stealthing. I felt a little vulnerable only being able to wear leather. With a friend or alone? What's your friend going to be leveling? Ridin' solo Are you leveling via PvE or PvP? Chain-running dungeons? Strictly PvE Will you be doing primarily raids/dungeons at level cap (PvE) or knocking the opposing faction in the balls over a flag (PvP)? Questing primarily then raids/dungeons Will you be multiboxing or just playing a single character? Since I'm just getting back into it I just want to focus on one toon for now. Race preference? Either for looks or the actual racials (or lore!). I don't really have a race preference though I tend to lean more towards alliance. Though I'd be open to rolling a horde. Heals/tank/DPS? What's your style for DPS - melee or ranged? I guess I'd say I was more of a melee dps person since I'm coming from a rogue. I'm currently leveling this druid and I'm still on the fence with it. Not sure if I can get into the whole casting thing yet. Any favorite game mechanics? (DoTs, HoTs, stealth, mana, etc) Probably stealth, DoT, Hybrid or pure? Does it matter? Doesn't matter Pet or temporary pet or none at all? Does it matter? Doesn't matter Throw in any extra details here: Sorry if my responses were vague. Tried to give it my best from what I can remember about the "old days". I haven't played since TBC, so this is a whole new game for me. I don't have the time to dedicate to the game as I used to so I'm looking for something that's quick to pick up.Bastorn1 May 20
May 20 Artifact gear and locking experience Hi, so I've been questing and doing battlegrounds on the side. I've found battlegrounds to be really fun, but I've heard that once I need to get my artifacts, etc. I'll be at a HUGE disadvantage in pvp(Including pvp talents, artifact levels, etc.) I was wondering at what level do the artifacts come into play? I'd like to lock my experience on this character, so I can enjoy battlegrounds without being at a huge disadvantage for a long time. I'll get 110 on my alt instead where I just do quests.Furrlex4 May 20
