 World of Warcraft

Blizzard Entertainment's popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) World of Warcraft first launched in 2004 on PC. It won a Guinness World Record for most popular MMORPG based on online subscribers, with a player base of about 10 million as of January 2008. It's a large, sprawling game that can be intimidating to newcomers. If you want some help getting adjusted to your new life in Azeroth, here are some beginner tips, along with helpful chat and guild commands.

World of Warcraft Tips

Make More Money With Crafting

If you have high experience in crafting skills like Herbalism, First Aid, Skinning, or Leatherworking, put them to good use to rake in some gold. First, get the materials needed for what you want to make. For example, kill lots of humanoids for linen cloth, or wool for First Aid. Then, just sell the materials to an NPC. If you want to make more money with Skinning and Leatherworking, make something out of the leather, then sell it at the nearest auction house.

How to Tame Animals as a Hunter

When you're a hunter at level 10, look for a hunter trainer and talk to him/her about a pet. He/she will send you on 3 quests with an item to tame animals. When you come back the third time you will need to talk to him/her after you return the item. He/she will send you to another city who will teach how to feed, dismiss, call, and a few other commands for your pet that are essential.

Beat Vagash

To kill Vagash on the "Protecting The Herd" quest, it is easier just to get a group with a healer ranged and a meat.

Learn how to Fish and Cook

Go to a trainer and learn the basics. Once you're done with the basic learning, open your ability book. The ability you learned should be there. Drag the ability to your action bar. Once there, click on it and it will probably say what kind of items you need or where to go. You must have the correct weapons to do this. For fishing, you will need a Fishing Rod, and for Mining, you will need a Mining Pick. From there, once you reach a certain level in your abilities you can upgrade your weapons.

Where to find Ekeyakee

In the "Ekeyakee" quest given by Segra Darkthorn in the CrossRoads, go northeast to Grol'dom farm. Travel to the east side of the mountain, where you will find the bones of a Giant Kodo near a tree. Stand next to the head and blow the horn. Ekeyakee will appear unless someone just killed him a moment ago. He will be standing next to the tail if done correctly and is a level 16 White Lion. Remember that this is a quest, and if you kill him you cannot try again unless you get a friend to blow the horn and let you tame it. If this happens, he loses the horn. You can get a new one from Segra by abandoning the quest and getting it back from her.
