Recently, I created this character to have some fun and enjoy the game, hoping that I'll find somebody to chill with and quest together. Unfortunately, at the moment, Dun Morough (probably spelled that incorrectly....) is empty, with the exception of one or two people questing roughly 7 miles away from you, if you're lucky. I go off to look for a higher level player in Ironforge, and not too many people were at the time, and those who were there were level 80 to 85. I asked over half the city if they could help me, and all I get as a response is : "Get lost!," "Get better gear and then I still won't help you," and this is my favorite (sarcasm intended) "Why don't you find another little newbie to help you. Oh, right, I forgot, NOBODY'S LEVEL 10 ANYMORE!" Very nice people right, because I think the nicest one's ignored me completely. So, what does this mean? People hate new players. If there is anyone decent enough out there, feel free to post and add other stories aboout what has happened to you when you were lower level. Cheers!

Welcome to Azeroth. I love you.


Awesome movie quotes aside, though, I had an excellent new player experience, so I do my best to pay it forward. I don't always succeed, of course -- (we all have our off days, right?) -- but I try my darndest to be friendly, cheerful, and open to making new in-game friends.

Sometimes I'll answer questions in Trade or General chat. Other times, I'll hand out BoE items to characters I think could use the upgrades, or party up with players who ask for help while I'm leveling up my alts. It really doesn't take much to make someone's day a little easier or brighter, and I've found that I always feel a bit better after. It's win-win!

Maybe the player you ran into was having a rough morning/evening/night, or maybe they just have a different approach to gaming than you do. It's hard to say. Either way, don't lose heart! There are definitely oodles players out there who enjoy helping out their fellow newbies (for example: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/1011644/ ).

Sorry, I'll go back to my corner.
