So I was thinking that a comprehensive "one stop shop" beginners guide would be nice to write up. I have some friends who are relatively new to F2P. So I sent them to this forum but trawling through it, while rewarding, is also time consuming and often you come across stuff thats just outdated. I'm imagining a comprehensive a guide with tips and knowledge to get someone all the way from the character creation screen to several thousand achievement points. I know we like to predominantly pvp but it seems like our "guides" are almost exclusively focused on that and not much help to the aspiring achievement hunter beyond "search the forum" and "explore between ques, I guess". So I got to work on a rough draft but I soon realized even I don't know a lot of stuff. I dont, actually, know how to get to outland without having a port to Pandaria and setting my hearthstone at the inn. I don't actually know how many pets we can get. what is the best way to level archaeology? I know some of you (@Crystalpall and @aislingyngaio come to mind) have some pretty expansive knowledge and experience and was hoping to crowd source all the little tips and tricks we've learned along the way that we might think of as common knowledge but someone new to this particular niche of WoW might not consider. Like how much certain races profession bonuses might help or that there arent plate helms available at our level. Links to guides (like this fishing contest guide) would also be super helpful. I'd like to be able to sort of "paint with a broad brush" but then provide links for further/deeper reading.
