What we, as noobs, fail to do is to look at the resources that are close at hand:* Guild members* Online resources, such as: WoWWiki.com, WoWHead.com and web sites that specialize in your class.All it takes is some time and a wee bit of effort.

While I entirely agree with you that once you've discovered these resources there's little excuse to not learn your class (well, perhaps there's something to be said for learning by doing), I think you forget what it was like when you first started the game. I was completely shocked the first time I searched for online resources, by how many there were!! I had no idea!! I had also almost made it to level 70. I was a huntard (for example, I left my pet's growl on in dungeons) but I simply had no idea so many people wrote about wow on the interwebz.

I agree with Sara. The topic wasn't "How can we help noobs?", it was asking us about our noob days. I certainly don't think my noob days were caused only by not knowing resources exist, it was my first mmo and I wanted to discover everything on my own. And y'don't have to list them for us; we obviously know of one because we're posting here O:

Back when I was a n00b things like thottbot and wowwiki were just starting up, old school player and what not. I'm not even sure if WoWHead was around back then.Most noobish thing I can recall doing was clicking frustratedly on the mail icon on the side of the minimap to get my mail."You have unread mail""I'M TRYING TO READ IT YOU STUPID #$)*)*@#....oh look a mail box..."

SGM9000:Looking at Wowhead's "About" page, they launched in summer 2006 but didn't become popular until... mm, right around when TBC launched is when I started hearing about them a lot, myself. It took awhile for them to overcome the massive popularity that was Thottbot. ;)
