I have never been known as a 'gamer'...
So when I first got World of Warcraft, my little brother
thought it was kind of funny.
I mean, he's the type of kid that's been playing
video games since he could hold a controller ... or type
on the computer.
Heck, come to think of it... I'm probably the only person
my age who hasn't been playing video games since I was
Anyway, you can see why my little brother thought I was not
the person who would excel at World of Warcraft. I did OK at super
Mario brothers ... but this Massively Multiplayer Online
Role Playing game?
He thought I'd NEVER learn ...
Well, I decided. I would show him...
Became a World of
Okay, I'm not really a World of Warcraft genius. But my friends
all think I am. Here's why...
I really decided I was going to figure this world of warcraft
thing out...so I started playing more than ever and listening
to all my brother's little tips and tricks.
I read anything I could find online about World of Warcraft, and tried even the craziest
things by little brother suggested.
I EVEN let his bratty little friends come over and play the
game on my computer so I could pick their brains too. Here's

Than You Think!
Turns out playing a great game of World of Warcraft is not
complicated once you know a few basics. In fact, it's way
easier and more fun than "regular old video games".
Some of the reasons are:

challenges and trials.
You and all your friends can play online!
There's something like 8 MILLION people playing World
of Warcraft - so there's always someone to talk
to about your passion (or complain to about losing!)
And you don't need to know a lot of technical stuff to be

No Simple World of Warcraft Guide!
I searched and searched for a good simple World of
You know, a booklet that was low on fluff and just tells
me what I need to know about World of Warcraft.
I don't want to know EVERYTHING, or read a university-level
course on 'proper and effective' gameplay, or
even a pretty picture book with maps of each level, etc.
I just want to know...what are the basic tips that those
pro gamers know that I don't?
Just teach me those tips, was what I was thinking.
I couldn't find such a booklet.
So I compiled all my research, and had one created!
