What's in version 5.0?

67 pages (155 hints) to help the new (and not so new!) player overcome the learning overload experienced by newer players to the World of Warcraft online game. Includes a few game "spoilers", but mostly just good hints on overcoming the unnecessary time-wasters and frustrations that befall new players, as well as several exciting hard-to-find bits you don't want to miss.

  • Where and how to get the in-game info you need - fast!
  • What to do when you first enter the game, and as you gain new levels.
  • Learn the best tricks to taking control of the user interface, including important keystrokes you'll wish you had discovered, plus tips on activating and using all the Action Bars.
  • Get the best price for your treasure, and avoid common mistakes when using the trading window. Lots of hints about how to overcome shortages in inventory space, including where to find emergency storage containers!
  • How to run for your life, and when not to - even some strategies for using your dead character!
  • Use macros to speed up your commands, including a few handy ones you can use right away.
  • Get tips on when and how to look for a good Guild.
  • Understand how Player versus Player gaming works, and how to get into and out of PvP combat.
  • A few hard-and-fast rules (as well as a few opinions) about common courtesy in the game.

Each section provides a simple hint and then goes into detail about how and why it works the way it does.

Without giving away all the secrets, some specific sections you'll find:

8. Choose an easy class for your first character
68. Do NOT pick on someone your own size
86. Get secret, low-cost, magical multi-slot bags
90. Learn to price your auctions wisely
97. Find important cooking recipes early
102. Get to Level 60 in half the time (if you really must)
131. You CAN make a private guild
133. Hone your skills with PvP practice

oh yes, and of course,

83. Learn to make 50 gold pieces in an hour!
