Top Tips for World of Warcraft Beginners

Getting started in World of Warcraft is easy – but challenging at the same time. Very often beginners find themselves faced with a slew of problems, and finding the solutions can be time consuming and tedious.

Right here and now we’re going to be guiding you through some of the best tips around so that you never have to face those kinds of problems!

1. Get as many bags as possible, as soon as possible

In World of Warcraft your inventory consists of bags in which you store items. Initially you start off with 1 backpack that allows you to store 16 items. Needless to say, this can fill up rather quickly so you’re going to want to get additional backpacks as soon as possible.

While 16 slot backpacks can be expensive for beginners, 10 slot backpacks are relatively cheap and you should buy as many of these as possible, as soon as possible! That way, you’ll be able to store more items and will find that things are a lot easier as a result.

2. Learn how to use the Auction House

Basically the Auction House is the center of trading for World of Warcraft and it is the easiest place to find practically anything and everything you could desire. Learning how to use the Auction House will allow you to browse through the selections, identify bargains, and buy what you need.

Also, you could sell some of the items you acquire during your adventures for quite a bit of gold!

3. Pick up gathering professions

Choosing two gathering professions (or at very least one) to begin with will allow you to collect more materials and then sell them for gold. When you’re starting out, gold is going to be one of your biggest concerns and so by picking gathering professions you’re going to ensure that you have enough on you at all times to learn new skills and buy equipment as and when you require.

Sure, other professions may offer great rewards later on, but you can always swap one (or both) of your gathering professions for those once you’re higher up and gold isn’t that big a worry!

With these tips in hand, you should find that your initial World of Warcraft experience goes a whole lot smoother. Now that you know what you can expect, and what you can do to help your character grow, you’re already at an advantage.

Be sure to use what you’ve learnt!

Should You Level Your Wold of Warcraft Character as Fast as Possible?

Once you start to level up, you’ll find that you slowly but surely end up building a desire to level up faster than you currently are. As you experience more and more of the wonderful content within the game, you’ll want to get further faster, and be able to get all that really cool gear and powerful spells that you see other players using.

Due to this, the temptation to level up your character as fast as possible is bound to exist, and you could very well end up getting frustrated by the pace at which you’re leveling and want to improve on it.

But at the same time, there’s bound to be a little part of you that wonders: Is it really a good idea to just race through your levels as fast as possible?

Honestly – there is no easy answer to this, and the jury is still out on this one. On one hand, leveling fast means that you get to experience the ‘pinnacle’ of the game content more quickly, i.e. the big bosses at the end of the game.

On the other hand though, it also means that you’re going to be missing out on a lot of the lower level content that can be pretty fun to work your way through as well!

Apart from the content though, the fact of the matter is that powering through levels often has one very detrimental effect: Your gear is probably not going to be up to par with your level unless you happen to be very lucky.

Most players who level up slowly and do the lower instances and quests end up gaining gear as they do so, meaning that they’re constantly updating their gear. But if you’re leveling up fast and not doing as many instances and quests as you do so, you’ll find that your gear very often is obsolete really quickly.

Once that happens, killing mobs that are your level can start to be more and more difficult!

Still, on the flipside, if you’re able to adapt to this and make certain that you upgrade your gear as much as possible, it’ll mean that you gain access to higher level gear that would’ve replaced whatever other gear you had anyway.

See how complicated a question this can be?

Basically – the only answer that is really important as far as fast leveling is concerned is whether or not you’re comfortable with it. There’s no point leveling fast if you find that it gets tedious and you can’t cope with it.

On the other hand, going slow and getting bored is just as bad.

Pick a pace that suits you – and go with that!
