Ravencrest Mentor Guild & Qualifications

General Discussion
1 2 3 12 Next
Dear Blizzard, I'd like to pass on some opinion in regards to the qualifications of our mentors on Ravencrest Alliance side.

I'd like to state something after some thought on this issue. It is true that everyone makes mistakes. I'm hoping that everyone involved learns from this mistake and it does not repeat in the future. Whatever the outcome, hopefully the mentor guild will learn to vet their information better and provide solid mentoring down the road.

I have some concerns about our mentor guild on Ravencrest Alliance. I believe the process of obtaining information to answer questions and mentor people needs some work. For example, a certain principle representative of the mentor guild was asked the simple question of how to play arms warriors. His reply was that they used 2 1 hander weapons. (Again there was a lot more background to this but it was basically stated that he had that notion from hearsay. I completely took out the copy+pasted text and screenshots to avoid "calling anyone out")

Now if I was a new player and joined the mentor guild to learn about the game, I would be fed misinformation on that topic. This answer was given in trade chat and the representative also stated that it was based on hearsay (a very unreliable source). I would argue that a mentor guild should definitely be able to vet information in order to mentor and teach players effectively.

I also have some concerns about the grammar and syntax of that certain representative. Although he is a really nice guy, I feel like the language needs to be comprehensible given this is a text-based game.

In conclusion, I’d like to ask for some better vetting of mentor guilds in the future and perhaps giving the mentor guilds better guidelines on how to mentor new players and find reliable information. Although this was only one mistake, who knows how much misinformation could have been relayed in guild chat from unreliable sources? I hope that we can all improve from this one mistake so newer players will not receive misinformation.

i agree
sticky it. Blizzard must be made aware of this.
An arms warrior dual wielding?

Mentor my !@#.

Get somebody to mentor who actually knows the information and won't mislead players.

Turn this into a petition, sticky it, and start signing it people.

Petitions are against the forum rules.
Shadows of Emerald Isle or Revelation would be my pick for a mentoring guild. I agree with you 100% cam.
I completely agree with cam.

So are call-out threads.
What makes you think this belongs on general discussion?

And calling people out is against ToU
I take no sides on this... but just know that specifically calling people out on the forums does nothing but get your post deleted and you banned.

It's a legitimate concern. Even if Cam edited out the name of the GM, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to type "Blizzard Mentor Alliance" into the search bar and go to Ravencrest.
as long as you love meeeee!~

Posting over used gif because hey, everyone else gets to at some point.

Call out threads are against the rules, is there not an email adress you can send this too or something?

I don't think that is necessary.

It's still against the ToU, hypocrite.

I'm not the OP nor have I called anyone out. Try again.
This needed to be posted. A mentoring guild should have a GM and some people within the guild qualified to teach players.
