No matter whether you're the greenest rookie on the block or well into leveling by now, if you haven't paid attention to the new, improved tutorial system that was launched with Patch 3.3, you're missing out! "This is great," says reader Dysmorphia when news broke about the new system. "I didn't even realize that you could turn your character with a mouse until around level 60 or so. Look at this sad e-mail I wrote to a more experienced druid when PvP got me down: My enemies literally run in circles around me making it very hard for me to attack. If you can offer any advice, I would be much obliged to you. Now it's the first thing I tell new players. But having it actually clearly explained in a tutorial will be very helpful."
Sink your teeth into the whole feast's worth of tips in our tutorial tips gallery, which we've featured here for you after the break. (Note that these are the test versions of the tips; some may have changed slightly or new ones may have been added in game since then.) Then you can turn the system off in game, with the assurance that you've reviewed what it has to offer.
