I reached level 8 in a few hours and then got stuck when I couldn't find an avatar to obtain my next quest from. I have read the new player guide and many posts on these forms but I haven't seen a topic dealing with learning how to move around in the World. I don't know where to look for a quest giver, or a vendor to unload the excess baggage from my quests and if I knew where, I don't know what to read to learn what can be found where or how to navigate from where I am to other designated locations that haven't been targeted on the map with a quest.

The reason I'm doing this is because when I first started I was lucky to have friends brother who was fairly experienced I asked him all sort of questions without him I would be nowhere and I would like to give the same opportunity to new players now to give you an example of my stupid questions "Why can mobs see and attack me if I'm hiding behind a tree?" anything you ask wont be as bad as that so go for it. Also please note if I'm raiding I may not be able to respond but during breaks or after raid I definitely will answer your question.14
[Information] Starter Account for returning players
You will likely be aware by now that some changes have taken place in 6.1 for returning players that have frozen accounts. Some sites have named this a "Veteran Account" though it is not officially named such. I thought I would make a quick post to let you know what this is all about. If an account becomes frozen, i.e. player has unsubbed or is no longer adding game time, characters above level 20 will be locked out from play, theses characters will be marked as [Inactive] on the character selection screen. You can however create new characters which will have the mostly the same limitations as a starter account:- Can't play expansion-restricted content (new continents, etc). Can't exceed level 20, 10 gold, and 100 trade skill ranks. Can't participate in Pet Battles. Can't disable experience gains. Can't trade, mail, or use the Auction House. Can't use voice chat or Real ID. Can't use value added services (character transfers, faction changes, etc). If you know starter accounts well, you will see that some of the restrictions of a starter account are not listed above. A player that has a full account but has no game time can play on a low level character but as opposed to having all the starter account restrictions, the following extra permissions have been granted:- Can join guilds their other characters are members of. Can whisper characters that are members of your current guild. Can use guild chat in addition to the say and party channels. You can also play any existing characters you have that are level 20 or below, but any trade skills that require over a skill level of 100 will not be available and if the character has more than 10g then that character will not earn any gold until they have spent enough to bring them back under 10g. Full information can be found in the updated support article found here:- https://eu.battle.net/support/en/article/world-of-warcraft-starter-edition-account-faq35
Looking for friend(s).
Hello everyone! As the title says I'm looking for friends to quest and do dungeons with in the Broken Isles. It doesn't matter if you're a veteran or completely new to the game, I'd gladly help out new players. However, you do need to be; Horde, atleast lvl 98 so we can start to quest in the Broken Isles, understand/speak decent English(or Swedish) and last but not least be a friendly individual :) I'm busy raiding on Monday and Wednesday evenings, but other than that I'm available most of the time. Feel free to add me. Best regards, -Rhunok#23771
Looking for friends!
So I recently came back to WoW from a few months break. I stopped just before Night Hold released, and due to IRL stuff, I had to stop playing, and lost all those that I played with before. Now I'm back playing again, but being so used to playing with others every day, I can't enjoy the game alone anymore, so I need some new friends to play with! If you're also looking for a new friend, or you're a group of folks who'll allow me in, let me know! I'm from the UK, but I am fluent in Norwegian, if that makes any difference :) Just be chill and friendly to be around I guess, just want to make some new friends so I can enjoy playing again. My Bnet is Pookzz#2283 Thanks!3
Most "flashy" class in Legion?
I don't want to hit a button and not see anything anymore so I was wondering what you guys would see had the best lightshow of ability's? I also love procs, not a big fan of dots etc (he says posting as a lock) melee or range dps isn't an issue either.5
Coaching for a Feral Druid 2200+
Hi there, My name is Maks, I've played WoW since WotLK and have been into PvP since I started. I haven't raided and I am not interested in much else, but at the moment I'm up against a brick wall in PvP. I have rerolled for a feral druid this season, having played a frost mage in late Mop, and a pala since I started WoW, I have never gone above around 1830 rating, and I'm really enthusiastic to hit high rated this season. I am looking for anybody, and I mean, ANYBODY willing to help me out, coach me with a few arenas, watch my stream for a bit, and just help me out in any way possible. I've played with high rated people before, but they didn't have the patience to teach me so they used to leave after about twenty minutes of games. Now, with the input of skirmishes, if you are high rated and not willing to lose any rating currently, I am more than happy for you to help me out in skirmishes, or war games, if you don't mind rating, then I'd love to do 2s as well. If you guys are by any chance interested in helping me out, please send me a message on my twitch, at Twitch.tv/Melokrine, or log into my server on outland and send me some in game mail to request my Skype, or add my BTag: Melokrine#2193 Any advice or help would be much appreciated. I am planning to main this druid, so please send any mail to: Melokrino-outland Thanks a bunch, Maks1
Lookin for a friend
Hi, basically I'm looking for someone to play with. I'm pretty new to this game, I practically don't know anything about it, and I'm looking either for a fresh guy like me or some kind of mentor. You choose the realm and race, I can play wherever you want. If you wanna play with me, make sure to add me on Battle.net: DaGame666#2766. Thanks. Ah, and this character was made for fun and I wanted to see if the Death Knight is worth playing.0
Returning to wow

How do i earn enough cash for the monthly token?
Welp. Fairly simple problem here. I want to continue playing WoW by earning the gold required for a token. Atm it's 175k on my server. Problem - after a week i have barely 40k. And that after playing rather actively. Now i thought that i could simply pick up mining / JC again, but it seems that it is just not worth it. From what i saw, the gems you get out are barely worth the ore you are processing. Turned to Alchemy / Herbalism. Crafted Potions of Prolonged Power, put them for the lowest price in, instantly undercut by a TSM bot 3 times in a row. Since im not big into botting, i wont be able to exploit the market either (due to the aforementioned TSM-AH-bot, brazingly called "addon" for some reason) So, what's left? Gathering Starlight Roses? Those sell well, but not well enough tbh. I would be spending hundreds of hours per months just running up and down the street, plucking flowers, farming more than playing. Flipping? Haven't really found anything that is not already exploided. And tipps? Most guides on youtube tell to server-hopp or to use bots. Is there any proper way to earn cash? Oh, and what about fishing? It's kinda fun, but im not sure if its worth it cash-wise.4
A question about professions
Hello! I am a returning player and haven't really been playing since WOTLK, although I tried cataclysm. I remember back in the day there used to be an advantage in waiting until you had maxed a profession before upgrading to the next skill bracket, i.e. an apprentice blacksmith could pick up journeyman blacksmithing at 50/75 skill, but would gain skill slower after that than if they had waited to upgrade at the cap of 75. Does it still matter when you buy the next profession level?1
Changes after 2 years
Just returned to World Of Warcraft after a 2 year break and found that many things have changed. Of course, the system requirements are always changing, so I checked my PC against the reccomended ones first. Turns out I'm fine since I play other games :) (therefore meaning I have the hardware) Since I'm returning after 2 years, (or already have) I thought it'd be important to first create a new character. So I made one I'm really attatched to (you can see her in my little profile pic to the left) and she is called ening. One thing that has changed and shocked me quite a bit is that I own four expansions (Mists Of Pandaria, Wrath Of The Lich King, Cataclysm, Warlords Of Draenor- methinks) but in my account I have all except Legion. This confused me but I'm not complaining, it means more awesome content for me! Okay, the graphics haven't changed, but the Pandarin (on high settings) still look more amazing than everyone else. Even though I don't like Pandarin, I have to admit their graphics are good. But I'm not complaining because the game engine is so old and it'd be a lot of effort to change content you made over a decade ago. I think it's best the graphics continue to be done in such a way because graphics aren't exactly as important as gameplay imho. As for the game, it is even more fun now. I loved it in the first place, but nothing beats doing fetch quests for cash. Then you spend it and feel the "I earnt this new armor" of everything. Your inventory eventually gets full of junk so you auction what you don't want off, churn some of it into thread and buy more bags & bank space. Personally, I think I've managed to make it enjoyable by exploring everywhere, doing missions and sometimes letting the expansions take lead. My goal is to explore all of the game and help everyone :) Anything else that has changed? (it might be a shock to my system) ETA: This is a stupid mistake I made. I have Burning Crusade, not WoD. All I can say is: this mistake is hilarious, getting the two mixed up.12
Picking a new class to play
Hello I, recently, was thinking about returning to wow but all classes that i used to play seem so boring ( Death Knight, Rogue, Demon Hunter). I always liked tanking and deepsing, now I'm looking for a breath of fresh air and considering healing or caster dps. Can ya guys recommend some fun classes with nice game mechanics to level up and play on end - game? PS. I also want to switch sides so if you can help me pick a Horde server it would be very nice. Thanks2
Buying the game, subscription, game time
Hello, I'm new to WoW and I like the Starter Edition so far. I have a few questions on how the server services work. First, I get a pop-up windows once in a while saying i can get the upgraded version "World of Warcraft" for 50% less (7.5 euros). Does this version include all the expansions but the Warlords of Dreanor? Second, do I get some time to play if I buy just World of Warcraft for the 7.5 euros? I read people got a month long "free" subscription. Third, Let's say I bought 30 days subscription today. Does it mean I won't be able to play after 9/16/2015? Fourth, Let's sayI didn't buy 30 days subscription but I bought 30 days game time. Does that mean I now have 720 hours to play? Thank you :)34
Can I switch main spec/artfct at level 102 ?
I leveled to 60 as subtlety and loved it. It went well in the world, questing, exploring, and it was nice. Thing is, it was with heirlooms. When I boosted to 100 and played legion as subtlety... The rotation felt boring, the artifact story too bland, and I got discouraged. Upon reaching level 102, I took the quest to get the assassination daggers... Gods, what a story. I loved it. It was amazing. I fell in love with it, with how the daggers look, and well, decided to try killing for a while as assasination. The flow felt better. I felt more actively doing something other than looking for a chance to shadowstrike, and altogether felt I could do almost everything I could as sub except now I had poisons, could cause bleeding, and my daggers look wicked. What I want to do is to stop leveling my sub artifact and focus solely on my assassination spec, but I wonder... is it too late? Is my character messed up completely? Is it still possible to level my artifact to max if I dedicate myself solely on it from now on?3
Gearing up past rhc level
Hello fellow wow players! I've been playing legion since release with no breaks longer than a week. Starting from few days before legion i was gearing up my main, staying slightly ahead of the curve, im about 900 ilvl now, tier pieces and stuff like that. However. About 8 days ago i have decided that i want to have a hunter alt, that'd be raid ready in case i need it. My guild broke recently so i can't really count on team boosting me through normal + heroic raids and then m+, and my hunter being new character i am not on the same gear level as everyone else. I am stuck on 840, done all lfr's, bought whatever can be bought for reasonable price from ah, done few rhc but obv my q as dps is really slow. Any ideas how do you gear an alt this expansion on your own? Having 840 literally nobody would take me anywhere including normal emerald nightmare. Ps. yes, i am doing whatever wq's i can but rewards are capped on 835 and titanforges are very rare as we all know and love.4
Brand new player, looking for people to play with
I am posting for my friend since he is on a trial account he can't make post on the forums ----------------------------------- Hello warcraft players. I am a new player to this game and I am looking for other people to play with since it usually gets boring playing solo all the time. When I play MMO's I like to explore the worlds and do quests instead of only running dungeons. I am looking for people that wants to play with me, who are kind and helpful. I don't want to rush this game to highest level, I like to take my time. I have no specific hours that I play, I log on and play when I want to and I log out and take a break when I'm tired. If you want to play with me, don't hesitate to add me on Projectyle#2531 At the moment I only have trial version but if there is anyone wanting to play with me, I'll buy the full version. And I am only interested in playing on PvE servers seeing as I'm not interested in PvP for now and I want to play without getting ganked2
