Getting Started in World of Warcraft? (Part One)

Are you just getting started in World of Warcraft?

I’ve been playing World of Warcraft (WoW) since its debut several years ago. It’s one of my favorite MMORPG (means “Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game”) ever- and I’ve played almost all of them as well as being a Game Master (GM) back in the day for a game.

So, let me share with you some of the things I have learned about my favorite hobby, playing WoW!

1. Enjoy the Quality of the Game
WoW is filled with boatloads of content! Although I have maxed several different characters of different classes, there is still some content I have not yet played. That amazes me! There is so much to do in the game. Don’t get too focused on leveling that you miss the huge content and quality that the folks over at Blizzard have created for you in WoW. Since Warcraft is an immersive experience, spend some time immersing yourself!

Once you have some experience and you are ready to move along a bit faster with a second or third character, there are many excellent leveling guides out there. My favorite in-game World of Warcraft leveling guide is the one produced by IDemise. You can learn more about that when you click here.


2. Talk with Other Players

Wow is not a game you play by yourself. Although you can solo in WoW, it is not nearly as much fun. Most people in the game will be willing to help you if you are polite, not begging for Warcraft gold, and able to take “no” for an answer. If you ask another player for help, they may be able to assist you with your needs, just part of your needs or not at all. There are many reasons a person may not be able to assist you at any given time, so if someone denies your request for help, thank them for their time and move on.

3. Do All the Newbie Area Quests
The designers at World of Warcraft are smart people. The starting area for each race is well thought out. Unlike most games that give you a time-wasting tutorial, WoW starting areas give you the training you need to play the game while at the same time you can earn coins and equipment to make your new character stronger. Do these quests, enjoy the fun and easy leveling up to about level six and don’t miss out on one of the best designed parts of the World of Warcraft universe. If you are brand new, the newbie areas will take you about two hours to complete, more or less.

This ends part one of my getting started guide to WoW, the World of Warcraft.
