Maybe because I am an educator in real life, I am often drawn to helping out the newbies. More often than not, with new members of my guild. Usually I let them hit about lvl 15 and then offer to take them through WC. I lead them around to get all the quests and then I try to find one or two more who want to go as support (I am healer but as level 60's, can tank WC with no buffs easily) as I can't heal a newbie and tank at the same time. I usually try to use this time to explain the way the etiquette goes because that is a good instance where you get a little bit of everything. I think that a little patience can go a long way. If I see someone spamming for gold, I will usually offer to help them get started with a profession, but if they persist, I will just say "go earn it". We all need to remember that we were level 1 a while back and we all made stupid mistakes and learned a lot as we went along. I still feel like I am learning and always am learning something new from WoW every day. The one skill I would offer to anyone starting for the first time is refresh your map skills because most everything is related to the map and directions. If you don't know N,S,E, and W, then learn it.:-)Rainnajax

I agree with you. I love this time of year. The new players running around so excited because you helped them kill Hogger remind me of what actually matters.Its not noob season, its "people who will be applying to join your raid guild next expansion" season. Why not help set them on the right track?
