Are you addicted to wow? Stay up late running quests or scouting the AH? If so...
WoW Insider just posted a great resource for new players in the world of Azeroth. If you're new to the game or just want to check out a few tips then I suggest reading this one:
Hi there, new player -- welcome to WoW and the WoW Insider family! WoW Rookie helps you get off to a great start with all sorts of crunchy bits and nuggets of wisdom. Here's our spin on all the nuts-and-boltsy tips you won't find in the box or in the game.
One note: If you've already begun your journey through Azeroth and run across something in game or in our resources below that makes you rethink your approach, don't be afraid to make a fresh start. Blizzard makes it easy for today's new players to zip through the early levels. It's much better to make adjustments early on, before you've invested significant time and effort in your character.

When I first started playing Warcraft I joined a pve server I liked the name of - Lightbringer. It sounded like as good a place to start as any. It was a medium population realm when I started so I hopped in and started my journey in Azeroth.
It didn't take long for the population to rise and with the release of Lich King I started seeing a maxed out server with a queue of over 800 players. Average wait time to play was 45 minutes to an hour. That definitely wasn't what I paid for. As a parent I'm more of a casual gamer. I like to log in and out of the game when I have the time in between work and the kids so the long wait was horrible.
As soon as Blizzard added Lightbringer to the list of realms available for free transfer to a lower populated new server I jumped at the chance. Here's a few pros and cons I've found with my move. Use them to make your own decision to stay or go.
There's just a few things to think about before you take the plunge and join a new realm. To be honest I'm loving Dawnbringer. I love to see the new faces everyday and if you monitor the economy right you can take advantage of the flux and make a pretty penny.
Good Luck and Good Hunting!
Another stunning design, hope you're keeping well
That's perfect Marcus! Just what I need to keep the 3 column design. Keep up the fantastic work!
Currently working on some changes so that you can get rid of the right hand column on the blog and replace it with an activity module that will display your recent blog posts and comments. stand by!
Thanks guys! I'm trying to decide whether to stick with the current 3 column or give myself a bit more room to blog with a 2 column. Might have to see how the site grows.
Have a wonderful week!
I completely agree - this site is polished! It's great to have you & your design skills showing how impressive a webjam can look!
