Mentor System Overview
Veteran players can become Guides in Shadowlands and help new players by answering questions they have about the game in the Newcomer Chat channel.
Are you a knowledgeable player who wants to help newcomers as they are learning the game? As a guide, your main role will be to answer questions in the Newcomer Chat channel. You will be marked with a special icon in the world so that Newcomers will be able to recognize you, and vice versa. Currently, there are no rewards that guides get from this program.
New players will automatically be added to a Newcomer Chat channel, where they talk with other new players and seek advice from experienced players on the same faction who will be their guides as they level through the new starting zone. New players and guides can recognize each other in the chat channels and by icons above their characters' heads that only they can see. Upon reaching Level 20, new players will continue to journey ahead on their own and will no longer have access to the Newcomer Chat channel.
