Guides
Ooh, I wonder if the dragon is friendly!

If you've never played a MMORPG before, relax. Yeah, seriously, follow this newbie guide and soon you'll be telling noobs where to go.

World of Warcraft is very easy to get started in and to have fun with. If you're a MMORPG veteran, this guide should help get you up to speed quickly. This guide should help give you a general idea of what to expect as you begin playing.

If you find some of the terminology a little daunting, there's a glossary which should help explain some of the more common terms. There is also a list of acronyms to look through, to find one that you might not understand.

Several guides to help you get started Edit
