I'm not a WoW player, but I think that Debra is the target demographic for this. I think that WoW was probably a poor choice for the focus of this, since a good portion of the community has already become very familiar with the world and it's pathing, but they obviously went for the low hanging fruit and picked the game with the largest subscribership.That being said, this kind of thing could really benefit newer games (WAR) or games which have a different dynamic (EVE). When you've played a single MMO for months or years, you tend to forget that there was a time when everything was new...you didn't know where all of the action was at between levels x and y, or what your optimal loadout was. This approach is like taking what you find on the Internet (that you have to actively search for) and bringing it directly to you without forcing you to wade through forums and flame-bait. Yeah, at some point you'll probably become intimately familiar with the game enough that this service becomes redundant, but no one instantly know everything about a game, where everything is, or how everything works. That usually comes from either playing through, or troling through online databases.
