    What are some well-written guides to follow to discover and explore different aspects of WoW, including but not limited to leveling, raiding, professions, classes?

  • Gamefaqs has a bunch of guides.

  • This is a rather broad question, since it really depends what you intend to walk through. (WoW is a large world, and there's a lot to do.)

    • At Wowhead you can find user comments regarding just about anything in the game - quests, boss fights, zones, items, you name it.
    • Wowpedia has a lot of the same information, but they also have class-specific guides and "spec" builds. So, for example, if you want to know how to build a druid to do end-game raid healing, there's a guide for that.
    • WoW Insider has columnists that cover everything from world events to specific class minutiae. (Despite the domain name, it's not an official site...)

    Those are the big 3 that I look at on a regular basis.

  • I would start with the listed guides on the official site if you are new to the game in general. If you are wanting to find a guide for leveling, I would highly recommend Jame's and for professions WoW-Professions.

    Hope that helps.

  • WoW.com has a bunch of guides here. They're pretty generic though, which may not suit what you're after, but the problem with Warcraft guides is they can be invalidated by each new patch, so generic guides tend to hold up better.

    Other sites like TenTonHammer and Allakhazam are also good resources.

  • dont miss thottbot.com, i find it pretty actualized, and very easy to navigate, ther are also some resources you can buy for leveling, or gather gold or reputation, as someone said before you need to be a bit more specific about the question

  • An addition to a very old post:

    Blizzard themselves have a game guide available for World of Warcraft. You find it when you log in to your account and go to your wow game. There you see the Download the Beginner's Guide. It is quite extensive and should give a good start for any newcomer to World of Warcraft.

  • Okay, I really think I'm slightly insane. I looked for guides like this one, but I just can't find that on my 2DS camera software. As I can't find such a guide for the Nintendo 2DS, I think that it uses the same software as the 3DS. This is what guides tell me to look for in the camera software: But I just don't have this button visible. This is how my camera app looks in the bottom screen: That parrot gives me some basic help for the camera, but there seem to be no magic to morph him into a QR code button. How to achieve this?

  • I've been trying to escape the main menu in Call of Duty: Black Ops, but I can't find out how. All the guides I find out there just say: "Alternately press the right and left trigger". None of them seem to have tried it for the PC version. A few of them suggest: "Left and right mouse buttons will probably work on the PC". Well, I've been trying it like hell, my mouse almost bust open, and I still haven't managed to do it. I've already finished the campaign. Am I missing something?

  • What are warning quests? Nathan Sabruka

    In some quests where you must slay a large monster there is a large question mark with "WARNING" written under it. What does that mean? I assumed it means there might be other monsters in the quest, but some of the things I've read online contradict this. I've also only seen other large monsters in a single warning quest (against the Qurupeco).

  • I found a few guides that state that some careers are better suited for specific type of aspiration. For example the Slacker is better suited for the Romance aspiration. My question is: what is the specific effect that aspirations have over career? Do aspirations improve the chance of promotion for example?

However, no guides have fully explained to me where exactly the switches need to be positioned at for the inlet/outlet device to function appropriately. Furthermore, additional
