Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Now that Battle for Azeroth is here I thought it was time to put out some World of Warcraft new player guides, starting with 26 tips for new WoW players! I’ve tried to keep things simple and avoid the information overload that is typical when you start a new MMORPG. It’s impossible to avoid it entirely as MMOs are complex beasts, but hopefully I at least made starting WoW a little more manageable for you.

Like I said, you’re very welcome to join our guild (Silvermoon EU – Alliance) and even if you’re not EU you can still join our Discord server and ask questions any time you like.

Proxsea says:

You quit videos?

SeN Jai says:

Nightshade says:

im newish and one of the first things I did was level boost a character to 110
at least I can mess around as a demon hunter now
kinda sucks because i want to do the suramar dungeons but I don't want to piss people off because I don't know what to do lmao

Thunderfury Blessed Blade Of The Windseeker says:

Lol no you don't have a new player pick a tank or healer no. Just no.

Dawn Whitehouse says:

Also been so overwhelmed with WOW that I never tried it. Now I am excited to give it a full go! Thank you so much for this vid, it is invaluable to a beginner – and one that has been too overwhelmed to try the game.

Ben W says:

I wanted some advice please…

I am playing the trial, I have hit lvl20, I got the mount quest (Human Warrior, from Stormwind area).

I went and bought a mount, but I still need the apprentice riding training. I can go to the NPC guy to get the apprentice training, but heres my problem.

It costs 3 gold to get the apprentice training to ride my mount, is there a noob-friendly easy way to get 3 gold? I can't mine or fish or farm materials yet, I don't really understand the auction systems, I just want to know if I can get gold from missions? or are there particular events I can do on this trial account to get the 3 gold I need?

I am literally a beginner warrior who mostly plays deadmines repeatedly, but want to explore open world more without having to walk every-frickin where. I haven't decided if I will commit enough time to playing to justify buying a monthly subscription, so I am just trying out a few classes and seeing what it's all about.

Any help appreciated 🙂

You can also buy game cards for 30 days!

Ribttes says:

Was actually considering buying the game, since I started to goof around with some classes and races to find the one I liked most and while knowing some of how the game works, there were some tips that I did not know about. But to be fair, I am quite scared of joining a guild cause I am afraid I wont live up to guild standards sometimes, taking my time with stuff and not doing things fast, or just because I am not a talkative person in ingame chats, not really shy just more silent when not around people I know. Maybe I'll get over it who knows. Anyways these were some great tips.

DanLuvs MC says:

Battle for Azeroth was pretty cool but I’ve had newer people in my guild come to me (I’m the most frequently on officer) ask for tips on starting WoW and I love helping them out

polk says:

Qso I'm watching this not because I want to play (kinda do) but because I enjoy sodapoppin but don't quite understand wow yet so I'm watching this and some others to try and better understand how this game works

hummingbirdcity says:

Don't boost and don't rush is the very best advice, in my opinion.

Fatih Karaca says:

so, wow on battlenet cannot be played for free after reaching level 20?! seriously?? not everyone can afford the monthly or yearly pays zzz

milo20060 says:

It's shit to start retail lol. Let me tell you.
Dead parts when leveling and actually wanting to see the adventure and grind happen on you is not going to happen.
You are clueless on story pretty much, no class quests and you get weird abilities quickly that you really don't care coz you can 5 hit a mob in anyway.
You soon start to relalize that everything that you do during leveling will be worthless in the end until you get to that shitty point were you are going to grind for some stupid transmogs that will be irrelevant in the next expansion or even patch lul.

Kpaw says:

Played Asheron’s Call from Day one to the end. I have the itch for another MMO and been thinking about this game. Do many ex-AC’ers play?

J-E Double SS says:

Wow.! you're absolutely right I saw another beginner's guide and they actually said to boost but you're correct when you said

" you're not going to have a clue of what you're doing"
Thanks you not gnna boost" 🙂

Anastazja Kawiorska says:

Dumb question – if I start playing now and level up my character, one the Classic expansione comes out, will it reset my character
