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.

      HELLO! We're a Horde guild on the linked realms Skullcrusher, Gul'dan and Black Dragonflight - I like to call it Dan Blackskull - sounds like a bad D&D character name.   We're looking for a holy paladin, and a warlock to take over a main raid spot. But, your experience and that you make us laugh matters to us more than the class.
      We raid 7pm to 11pm EST Monday and Sunday. We do Mythic, so this would involve a transfer. Sorry, we can't cross realm current mythic content.  Not my rule, talk to Blizzard.   If you choose to join us, be prepared for stupid jokes, too many puns, and steady progress.   We expect you to:
       • Don't bring the drama, don't be a douche.
       • Improve your own play with each attempt. We want another guild member, not a carry.
       • Be there. We raid 8 times in a month - that's it. If you can only make every Sunday, you're missing 1/2 the raids.
       
      In return you can expect us to:
       • Work with you to try and improve
       • Not go psycho at you when you make a mistake (we might laugh)
       • Respect your time. We do not go late, I do not add days.
       
      Ideally you'd be around 915 item level (my alt is 914 and only pugs normal. You can do it.) Being short isn't a deal breaker, but someone running at 880 is going to have a hard time making up the dps, heals, survivability (is that a word? who cares! it is now,) that is needed to justify a spot. If you're looking for someone to carry you through the raid and just soak up gear, we wish you luck elsewhere.   Comms: We use Discord for voice chat.   Loot: We roll for loot and distribute it through RCLootCouncil. Trials are permitted to roll on loot, but can only win if no one needs the loot for Main spec, the spec they are playing in the raid. Should we accept you and you join, then the trial period is over, and you have full rights to loot.   If interested, contact Tthrack#1350 (guild leader), anyone in Questionable Morality on Skullcrusher or drop a an app in on our Website QuestionableMorality.com.
      Thank you!

      Hello! This is Fox from Velocity. We're a not-so-hardcore MORNING Mythic raiding guild on Sargeras. Currently 1/9M, 9/9H ToS. Last tier we reached 7/10M NH in the two months leading up to ToS. Now we'll be focusing on Mythic ToS progression. A fun fact about us, since were a morning guild we actually got 2 realm 1st's on Heroic. Worldwide our H Goroth kill was 15th, and Demonic Inquisition was 8th (according to wowprogress). Were looking for good and reliable players for our roster, mainly DPS, who can learn the fights quickly and attend our early raid times. 
      [A] <Velocity> 1/9M 9/9H (7/10M) - MORNING raid LFM
      Raid Times: 10am-1pm CST | Tues/Wed/Thurs / Mon(Opt/Alt)[/quote]
       
        Looking for:
      Currently Need
      Ranged - Mage, Ele Sham, Hunter, Warlock, Boomkin
      Melee - Rogue, Ret Pally, Warrior, Demon Hunter
      Would consider
      Healer - Resto Sham, Holy Pal, Disc Priest.
      Tank - Flex Bear
        Requirements: 
      Item Lvl:  915+/-
      Exp:  9/9H (Pref), 8/9H ok
       
      *Specific classes are listed above as preference. However, any class is welcomed! We will consider anyone who is willing to join and can commit to our raid times, we may also make exceptions if you are under the requirements.
       
      Expectations:
      We’re not super hardcore, we like having fun, but we do have high standards; so we expect our raiders to play their class well, come prepared, FOLLOW MECHANICS, have a sense of humor (or not) and adapt quickly. Prior Mythic raiding experience is a plus, though not necessary if you're a fast learner. 
      Due to our morning raid times, we encourage everybody to communicate about attendance via Calendar invites, Discord channels, or through tells with an officer. It’s important to know who will be available week-by-week so we can make arrangements for raid days. This is necessary to avoid setbacks and keep up with progression! We are very understanding when someone needs to post-out. Schedules change, things come up and real life always comes first. All we ask is for a heads up!
        Perks: Feasts, Codex, Spirit Cauldrons, near-unlimited guild repairs, and the occasional gem or enchants. We run alt raids and Mythic+ 15s with each other each week. We're a tight-knit guild, who's always joking around and helping each other out. We also play other games together outside of WoW, like Overwatch, SC2, Heroes, Diablo, Dota2, LoL and whatever else.

      Additional Info: The morning slot is kind of niche, so it’s important we find players who are dedicated and realistic with their schedules.
      Our Officers are veteran players who have experience raiding at high levels, as well as a majority of our core players. We want to uphold a certain level of standard, the point being that we can joke and have fun while getting stuff done.
      If we sound like a good fit, let us know! Leave a reply here, send us a tell on BNET or in game. Or be old school and send an in-game mail! Thanks for reading, and we hope to hear from you soon! =D

      Oi, mates! Let me just briefly introduce me and this guild. My name is Beautymen and I have been playing ever since WoTLK. During this great expansion I was heavily involved into raiding on Quel'Thalas. Ever since I left these days behind the sensation of raiding and progressing has been tickling my sensitive parts. Therefore, when Legion launched I came back to play with my mate Kraishan and we founded Mythic Busters.
       
      What is Mythic Busters?
      Our guild, Mythic Busters, is a friendly bunch of people from all around the world who are looking to get into raiding. Especially, when you have been gone from the game for some time, you might have lost your raiding mojo and find it hard to be re-introduced.
      This guild offers you the chance to start raiding again in Legion through a fun and relaxed way. No hard requirements, just fair and square play. We have several divisions within the guild to cater to different players. For instance, we run Mythic+ to gear up new players and currently we are building progress and farm runs through the newest raids.
       
      What makes raiding different with you guys?
      Good question, me. Well, if I might be so egocentric as to say that first of all: I believe we have created a great atmosphere within our guild. I, as a raid leader, try to entertain the raid group on Discord by keeping our nights social and fun.

      Sounds great. When do you raid?
      Right now we raid on Wednesdays and Sundays from 7:30PM (invites) till about 11:00PM server time. These raids are currently focused on ToS HC progression. On Fridays we also run a normal mode farm for alts/lowerer geared members.
       
      Awesome. Who are you looking for?
      We accept any and every social player who is either experienced or new to raiding. Just be a chill or dude or dudewoman! And of course, ready slash willing to learn.
       
      You sold me at dudewoman! How do I join?
      Feel free to respond underneath this post or whisper me ingame (Beautymen-QuelThalas or Beautyman#2868).
