Website Recommendations for Leveling Guides

I browsed a number of websites which contained World of Warcraft leveling guides, (7 pages of google results), and found that most websites offer a few tips but are ultimately promoting an affiliate leveling guide that they want you to buy. I threw out results which included “Zygor,” “Dugi,” and “James Horde/Alliance,” among others which are obviously trying to make money off you. These are leveling guides that you have to pay for. I also omitted results from before 2011. The following sites had some useful tips for beginners.

Fledgling Guardian Cub now for sale at Blizzard Pet Store

Now for sale at the Blizzard Pet Store: the fledgling Guardian Cub! I’m not a pet collector myself, (I’ve had the Haunted Memento in my bag for years and quite content with it coming and going as it pleases), but unlike any other pets that you buy at Blizzard’s store, the Guardian Cub is tradable. Not only can you give it to another character in the game, but you can also sell it in the Auction House. Have we just found a way to legally convert dollars to gold? Yes, but Blizzard actually intended it that way.

Website Recommendations for General World of Warcraft Guides

www.worldofwarcraft.com (Official site)
When you’re on the official WoW site and click on game, the first thing you see is this beginner’s guide. It reads as if it is trying to convince someone to buy the game, rather than teaching you how to actually play it.

www.worldofwarcraft.com (Official site)
Very organized but still written for beginners. The link above gives a great overview of races, classes, dungeons/raids, professions, and talent calculators. However it doesn’t go into much detail. For example, it gives an overview of the alchemy profession but doesn’t go into detail of exactly what mats you’d need to level up that particular profession.

WoW Insider
This site goes into a bit more detail for beginners, from how to choose a realm to proper etiquette.

Why I (Originally) Started This Website

There are a ton of World of Warcraft sites out there ranging from how to spec your character to how to get more gold. Unfortunately most of these sites are confusing, don’t have the information you thought they would, outdated, or obviously trying to promote products. I got so annoyed with this that I decided to create a page listing the pertinent sites that I found useful, with all the crap weeded out. It’s my hope to do most of the homework for you, save you some time, and find you the best of the best. This is a work in progress and I’ll do my best to keep the lists updated. If you’d like to suggest a site to add, please email me at info (at) good-terms.com Thanks for visiting! More recommendations to come!
