World of Warcraft Secrets
Secrets abound – and sometimes this online reality game can go from being a massive role-playing experience to a massive headache. Yet millions of players log on each day from around the world to quest, battle, and socialize.
Are there World of Warcraft secrets that they know? You bet! Here is a look at some of the best secrets to make your game playing experience the best that it can be.
Learn your character
While some websites may claim that the best kept World of Warcraft secrets are leveling services, really this is a bad idea.
For starters, buying gold or using a leveling service is against the Terms of Service, so if Blizzard finds out you used one you risk having your account banned.
Second, most players will agree that there is nothing more annoying than a person with a high level character that still doesn’t know how to play the game. Sure, the lower level quests can be tiresome, but they are a great way to learn how to play your character to the fullest.
If you already have leveled a character up, say by doing the human quests, try another starting zone to get some variety.
Know how to quest
You might imagine that the best kept World of Warcraft secrets are about how to complete a quest, but that information is easy enough to find. In most cases, everything you need to know to complete the quest is included in the quest dialogue found in your quest log. This will usually give you a general idea of where you need to go and what you need to do when you get there.
Alternatively, there are numerous other resources that you can use to gain World of Warcraft secrets on how to quest. Sites like Thottbot, WoWWiki, and Allakhazam allow you to search for quest names, NPCs, items and more. There you can gain insights on how to complete the quest, including drop rates, possible bugs, coordinates to the location, player tips, screenshot images, and more.
Along similar lines, mods are also available to give you an edge on World of Warcraft secrets. Mods are small, downloadable programs that can be added to your WoW account to make game play easier. Coordinates can make it easier to pinpoint mobs you need, while Questhelper gives you an arrow to literally point the way.
Other mods can help you set up your user interface, find materials for learning professions, keep an eye on prices at the Auction House, and more.
One of the great things about WoW is that there is always someone else playing. So, one of the most obvious World of Warcraft secrets is: be friendly to other players. Certain quests, instance, raids, battlegrounds, and other activities can only be completed in a group.
If you play nicely, you have a better chance of being invited back. Vulgar language, spamming the chat channel, stealing mobs or gatherable materials, or “ninjaing” during group runs (taking an item of value without asking the group and leaving suddenly) is generally frowned upon.
Besides being rude, some of these offenses can get you banned from the game as well. Guilds, which are friendly coalitions of players, may also have their own private codes of conduct.
Of course, in many realms all bets are off when dealing with players of the opposite faction. However, keep in mind that if you gank a lower level at half health while he’s questing, there’s a good chance he has a guild mate or alt that will be more than happy to come along and return the favor.
