World of Warcraft Strategy Guide
Hi, and welcome to Secrets-of-WoW.com!
My name is Seth Symonds and I have been an avid WoW player for over 4 years now and in that time have built up a freat deal of knowledge and insight into how to play the game successfully.
I put this site together to help you progress through World of Warcraft and to provide you with some insight into the latest tricks, techniques and strategies being used by the WoW Masters. Whether you are looking to get more gold, or to level your character to a higher ranking, everything you need to know can be found here.
Firstly, for those of you who are new to World of Warcraft, let me give you a brief introduction to the game.
World of Warcraft was released in November 2004 and is what is known as a MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). Being an MMORPG, thousands of players from all corners of the globe can get together online and battle with and against each other.
World of Warcraft (which is commonly known as WoW) is made up of 80 levels. Levels 1 – 60 can be accomplished in the original game, and levelling through levels 60 – 70, and then 70 – 80 is done using two expansion packs (The Burning Crusade and Wrath of The Lich King – aka WOTLK).
The most common ways to progress in the game are to increase your characters level, gain experience, make money (gold), and build your reputation. That’s where this website is very useful. Throughout this website you’ll find lot’s or secrets and techniques that you can use to become stronger, richer, and more successful than ever. I also review a raft the latest and greatest WoW Strategy guides so that you can what sets the Master’s apart from everyone else.
If you’re looking for the Ultimate guide to WoW Domination (how to level up super fast and get ridiculous amounts of gold), I suggest you check this one out:
Ultimate World of Warcraft Guide
The Ultimate WoW Guide is the most thorough and complete of all WoW Guides. The members area covers absolutely everything you need to know to master World of Warcraft.
World of Warcraft is divided into two different factions (teams). When you start playing you first need to choose who you want to fight for, Horde or the Alliance. You can then move on to selecting a race.
There are ten races to choose from: Horde races are made up of the Orc, Tauren, Troll, Blood Elf and the Undead. The Alliance consisits of Dwarves, Humans, Gnomes, Draenei, and Night Elves.
You will also need to select a character class. In WoW there are 10 different character classes that you can choose from, they are as follows:
- Death Knight (Wrath of The Lich King expansion)
Your character will need to earn gold, silver and copper in order to finance in game quests. As WoW is such an enormous game there are numerous ways in which you can do this.
One way to earn wow gold is to play texas hold’em wow poker. More info on texas hold’em can be found here. The way this basically works is that you can download a mod which you can then use to play poker against other WoW players. Even if you don't use this type of mod for earning gold (which you can do successfully), it will give you something to do while waiting for spawns, raiding or looking for a group.
Professions are another major part of the WoW characters. As your character develops you’ll pick up a number of talents and skills which allow you to further define your characters abilities. You can choose to learn from a range of professions which include the following:
- Gathering Professions such as Herbalsim, Fishing, Mining, and Skinning.
- Production Professions such as Alchemy, Blacksmithing, Cooking, Engineering,
- Leatherworking, Jewelcrafting, Inscription, and Tailoring.
- Service Professions such as Enchanting and First Aid.
When choosing professions, it’s recommended that you select those that fit well with your class. A Warrior might find Mining and Blacksmithing useful whereas a Hunter might find Skinning and Leatherworking best.
