Heyas, Oracle, and welcome to the game. smile.png

 

1. All your characters are eligible for all kind of realms PvE / PvP / RP. But to move a toon between realms or factions (Aliance / Horde) will cost you Transfer money. If you don't like to be PvP disturbed while leveling, don't chose PvP realm.

You can see a list of realms by Type, Population, Faction ratio and PvE raid progress on Wowprogress. I chose EU-Eng realms in the link but you can check US and other language realms there too.

 

2. Raids and Outdoor Bosses are designed for end-game, so you will have to level to 100 and gear up a bit to start raiding.

The easiest 'tourist' level of raiding is LFR - in-game tool that builds automatically 25-man raid group. For higher level raiding (Normal, Heroic, Mythic) you will have to join manually created groups but frankly, raiding is mostly done with a guild.

 

You can join 5-man dungeons with boss fights from level 15 and the game will walk you through this possibility - you wouldn't miss it.

 

3. The simple answer - no, you can't switch regular gear between characters. The more complicated answer - there are some kinds of Heirloom and BoA (Bind on Account) gear that can be transferred between characters but it's used almost exclusively for leveling alts and you wouldn't be able to reach it on the brand new toon.

 

4. You can get your first ground mount on level 20. When reaching lvl 20 you will receive a quest that will walk you through the process. You will get a possibility to obtain next (faster) ground mount on level 40 and will unlock flying on level 60 (not in all areas). All flying skills and mounts cost money - first ones are very cheap.

 

5. Rolling restarts is a once per week realms technical maintenance mostly for 15 min. Sometimes it's extended to 4-6 hours if there's a patch to apply, etc. It's Tuesday for US and Wednesday for EU.

 

6. Clans in WoW are called Guilds. When you start to play, you'll be spammed in game with automatic invites to join some random guilds - do not accept this.

You can look for a normal guild on IV forum, on official forum, on mmo-champion, etc...

You didn't mention where you are playing - EU or US - so I can't point you to the exact place.

For example, this is the Guild thread of my server (EU-Argent Dawn) on the official WoW forum. You can read about different guilds there and check their sites. Most of established long time guilds have their own site. This is of my guild for example: Immortalis.

 

7. The trading feature in game is Auction House. You can find it in every capital city and they are all linked.

Here's a bit of explanation about it.

 

Hope, it helps smile.png

If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to ask.

Welcome to the game,

 

If you simply want to do some World PvP on a normal realm, simply enable PvP.

To enable PvP: Right click on your portrait (health bar), go to Player vs Player, and select Enabled.

Note that you cannot attack players that are not PvP enabled, but they can attack you. The moment they do attack you, they are automatically PvP enabled. If everyone is too scared, you can transfer to a PvP Realm as Pandacho suggested.

 

You can also enter Battlegrounds or Arenas, in which all players are automatically PvP enabled.

 

The Group Finder (Default hotkey "I"), small green eye button on your menu bar. This allows you to queue up for either PvE or PvP content.

 

Only certain equipment can be shared if they haven't been equipped yet. This is called "Bind on Equip" which will be displayed in the tooltip, for example inv_jewelry_ring_13.jpgBraided Copper Ring

Stronger equipment cannot be traded. When looting/viewing these equipment they will say "Bind on Pickup". inv_jewelry_ring_01.jpgBounty Hunter's Ring.

When a item cannot be traded it simply says "Soulbound" in the tooltip.

As for the Heirlooms Pandacho mentioned, see my Guide, they cost a lot.

      ABOUT US:
      Gordian Knot is a 20-man semi-hardcore raiding guild that consists of experienced raiders with some of them having raiding experience as far back as Vanilla.
      We are a friendly group who enjoys World of Warcraft and loves raiding. We have fun and joke around but when bosses need to go down then all is serious! We wish for all our members to enjoy the game as much as we do and we expect raiders to maintain a 80% attendance per month.
      We also enjoy a variety of other activities such as running a lot of Mythic+ dungeons doing alt-runs, achievement runs etc.
      There are a few things we hold in high value but above else we value friendliness and politeness towards guildies and other players and skillfulness when it comes to the more serious parts of the game.
      CURRENTLY:
      We raid 3 nights a week, Wednesdays, Sundays and Mondays, from 20:00 till 23:00 server time.
      Although we are a 20-man guild, we usually run an extra group in order to get more people to experience the joys of raiding, help new raiders learn the Knot's way to down bosses and gearing up. Usually, these runs happen on Thursdays. Also, every Friday and sometimes Saturdays too, we're on RBGs killing alliance scums!
      Saturdays are generally left for those RBGs or older content runs for fun and drinking!
      Our current guild progress is 4/8 in The Eternal Palace mythic, and we're focusing on getting further Mythic progress. Our aim is to always progress as much as possible but also to have a relaxed and fun atmosphere at the same time!

      Hi everyone!
      We're a bunch of people from the old OpenRaid team (the cross-realm raiding community) and we really missed how great the old community was. We've set up a new website which is open for testing now. We'd really love to hear some feedback on this.

      Play style: Hardcore, Semi-Hardcore, Casual (Casual recruitment may change later)
      Focus: Both HC Raid progression, and HC WPvP+PvP progression. Need to fill multiple 40m raid teams and multiple PvP teams.

      Class Needs:
      We are still recruiting all players of all kinds atm. We encourage you to play what you want and what is fun for you. This is just a list of the classes we want and need for our guild and to have for our core Raid and core PvP teams. (As of now we need ALL classes, this list is expected to change as we recruit more)

      • Druid – any spec
      • Hunter – any spec
      • Mage – any spec
      • Priest – any spec
      • Rogue - any spec
      • Shaman – any spec
      • Warlock – any spec
      • Warrior – any spec

      Introduction: 
      Dead Naga Storage is a guild build specifically for the launch of WoW Classic. GET EXCITED! We were a very powerful and progressive filled guild back in the original Vanilla days in 2005. We have great guild leadership experience and Raid and PvP leadership experience as well as BG shot calling since 2005 – present day. We are a PvE-focused progression and PvP inspired guild interested in filling our teams with dedicated members who are willing to be available and dedicate themselves to learn their roles and characters for our core 40m Raid and WPvP groups. We plan on having quite a few raid and pvp teams set up within a couple weeks or months. Our members are expected to clearly and consistently put forth effort to be as knowledgeable as possible on their class, BiS, be mature, and skilled players. We want you to be competitive!! Our leaders have a lot of experience in clearing major raids like MC, BWL, Onyx, Zul Gurub, AQ and Naxx so you know you’re joining a great guild. MC we will be going in at week 1 of raid launch! We also want our members, during the beginning of the launch, to help with grouping up for quick and easy dungeon clears and group quests or ganking help. We are first and foremost a family here and protect each other!

      Goals: Ultimately, our goal is to efficiently complete all raid content that WoW Classic has to offer! NO EXCEPTIONS! We aim to keep a lean, tight-knit, fun, and mature guild we can all call home and be proud of! When we are not raiding, be expected to push high-tier PvP ranks through coordinated team in BG’s and WPvP! Be ready day 1! Once we have a significant amount at level cap, we will start gearing together for MC clears and halting Alliance groups at the gates! NOTE: We will also be forming Devilsaur Mafia and control the loot for our guild! WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR, AND DO NOT WANT ANY SELF SERVING PLAYERS… THIS IS TEAM BASED PROGRESSION GUILD!

      PvE – What we are looking for specifically: Solid players who are interested in pushing content while also being afforded the option of a flexible raid schedule. We want people who want to be a part of a community. We are looking currently for Class Leaders, Raid Leaders, and PvP Leaders for our multiple groups. At first lets focus on leveling up and having fun! We will be in MC on week 1 or 2 of launching. We are currently accepting players of all classes and roles. ATM our raid times will be projected around 8:00 p.m. EST (times may change accordingly)

      PvP – What we are looking for specifically: Serious players who are looking to push ranks very early on and either know the Honor system or be willing to learn it. Accepting players of all classes and roles currently. We are actively looking for PvP/Premade Leaders as well.

      Loot System: Loot Council system.
