Thereve been plenty of massively multiplayer games to come out over the past few years, and there are plenty more on the way. Into this crowded (some would say saturated) marketplace, Blizzard has finally launched their initial entry into the MMORPG, World of Warcraft. Based on their tremendously popular Warcraft universe, World of Warcraft features what can only be termed a stunning amount of content, and with its emphasis on casual play and soloability, is sure to be a favorite with gamers, perhaps especially those without much experience in online RPGs.
Of course, joining an MMO can be a daunting experience for someone who hasnt done it before. Thats where this guide comes in; in it, youll find a rundown on the various races, a huge amount of info on the various classes, tips for solo, PVE, and PVP play, a short guide to setting up your own macros, as well as descriptions of all of the professions and secondary skills that youll have available to you. Theres a whole world waiting to be discovered, so hopefully this guide will help you get to the meat of it!
Big thanks to Bethany Massimilla and Taros and Xenocryst ofthe Kel'Thuzad server for their contributions to this guide.
