Warcraft For Newbies!

To help new and old players alike, the guys at Game Hunters spoke with J. Allen Brack, the production director of the game, to get some tips on how to make the Cataclysm experience a little more enjoyable.

Newbies will find that now’s a great time to start playing since the level 1-60 game has been completely revamped and contains a new tutorial system.

When you first log in as a level-80 character, head to Stormwind (Alliance) or Orgrimmar (Horde) and find the Hero’s Call Board or Warchief’s Command Board to begin your quests into Vashj’ir or Mount Hyjal.

Many of the classes have been rebalanced and retuned. If you’ve played previously, you’ll want to be sure to spend your talent points and assign glyphs.

Goblin and Worgen are now available to play! If you start a Worgen or Goblin, you’ll find one-stop-shop trainers who can teach you any of the primary professions.

Click on the magnifying glass on your minimap to select options that will direct you to common services like mailboxes or banks as you get close them.

You can fly in Azeroth now so be sure to pick up your new Flight Master’s License at your local Flight Trainer.

Almost all the existing races have gained access to a new class, including dwarf mage, human hunter, troll druid, blood elf warrior, and tauren paladin, opening up new options to help make the leveling process feel fresh again.

There’s a ton of information at the new community site, which also has a search engine that can help you find the info you need when you need it. Logging in to your account unlocks a variety of new features, including character, guild, and event information. You can also click the ‘Home’ tab to find free demos of WoW: Cataclysm and Starcraft. Players with an artistic flair might also be interested in the Weaponsmithing Fan Art Contest.

Blizzard is making it easier than ever to start your WoW adventure, so take advantage of all the goodies the site has to offer.
