World of Warcraft Noobs
4th-Dec-2013 10:47 pm
I've been playing for about 3 months now, healing on a PvE server and currently lvl80. A friend who has been playing wow since it came out invited me.
My friend is on a PvP server(bleeding hollow), and he invited me to create a new character on his server, even offering to carry me through the game. My
problem is, this friend, although usually very friendly and helpful, sometimes teases me for being a noob. I want to play on this server with my friend, and make some new friends in-game, butI'm usually quite squishy/shy/timid. It took some courage for me to start queing for dungeons, and to post here. All the acronyms and rules I don't understand seem overwhelming. The server community seems unfriendly and intimidating (however, i'm not afriad of being constantly ganked or 1-shotted). I couldn't find any other noobs like me on this server, and i'm afraid of being pointed out for bad gaming skills and generally being "nooby". I know i probably shouldn't be playing this game if i'm this shy, but i generally really enjoy it :)
So, can someone please introduce me to a guild or some friends on Bleeding Hollow who are equally "nooby" or willing to help un-noob me?
I'd be very thankful for any help and advice X)

PS:I play for the horde >

When your friend teases you about being a noob he's being a jerk. You can remind him that he was a noob once too and that everyone starting something new is a noob all throughout life. The thing is that all 'noobs' become experienced veterans eventually so try to ignore the ribbing.

I've been playing for a few years and *I* don't know all the WoW slang and acronyms either. I sneak off and google them if I'm curious enough or I'll come right out and ask my fellow guildies.

I'm sorry I can't help you with Bleeding Hollow, I don't play there, but I can tell you that you are allowed to leave any guild that isn't friendly and helpful to you as you learn the game. When you choose a guild you can try to look for busy, active guilds that say they're helpful, friendly and willing to help with leveling. I've found I like family friendly guilds because they have been friendlier and have fewer crude trolls.

If you enjoy the game, you should be playing it. :-) EVERYONE starts out at the beginning, that's normal. Don't worry so much, there's a lot to learn and it takes time but you'll learn. You'll be OK.

Check out some different guilds and see if you can find a big, busy one, the more people online when you are playing the more help will be available to you. Don't be afraid to ask questions if you need to, most people love to talk game and help newer players.

BTW, you've done really well bring up a level 80 in three months (it took me a lot longer. lol!)

Best wishes!

Wow sounds just like me. I just started playing about a month ago when a friend from worked asked me to play. So I got set up on the Bleeding hollow server and he did the same thing to me. Kinda left me and was not much help when people got mad at me for things I did not know. I am also the same way shy. I have a Hunter on there who I kinda abandon because of this reason. So if you want to be a noob together I am willing if you want.
