Helpful Hunter FAQ / Beast Info
Posted on 29 March 2005 at 15:09:51 by Nether. |
Iíve decided to write a FAQ guide for the class, simply because Iíve seen so many posts in this forum about the same questions. Hopefully this guide will answer a majority of questions new Mages have and come to these boards seeking guidance about.
Thanks to the many of the excellent guides in the Profession forums, which I used pieces of to form the format of this guide. A special thanks to all of us Mages on these forums who try to help one another by answering the questions of our fellow Mages

This is a little FAQ I wrote up for some of the newer priests, please read before posting it might answer your questions already. Please add any questions that are not covered, hopefully we can compile a good list and get it stickied so we don't get so many of the same questions over and over again. :)
Rogue FAQ v4
Posted on 29 March 2005 at 15:59:15 by Chalon. |
This document originated towards the end of the Beta, when lots of newcomers joined in on the World of Warcraft experience. I saw many questions being asked repeatedly, so I compiled this FAQ. It would not have gotten to the form it is today were it not for the people listed in the "thanks" section.
For a little background of myself...I played a Rogue up to the level 60 cap on the Closed Beta server, so I have quite a bit of experience with the class. That being said, if you see any mistakes or things which need clarification, or if you have additional questions you think I should add, definitely let me know.
This FAQ is organized into multiple posts and sections, to make it easier to browse.
Note: A few questions may appear in multiple sections in cases where it makes sense.
I. General - These are basic questions, and questions which did not fit into the other categories
II. Training - This answers questions about where you can train weapons and abilities.
III. Mechanics - This covers questions about the "number crunching" behind the rogue
IV. Talent Builds - This section covers general talent questions, and questions about creating talent builds
V. Specific Talents - Here's where questions regarding specific talents are answered
VI. Equipment - This covers what you should consider for your equipment, and how you can find out where to get it
VII. Poisons - This covers all your poison questions
VIII. Lockpicking and Pickpocketing - All the questions about theivery
IX. Glossary - If you see a word or abbreviation you aren't familiar with, chances are it is here
X. Thanks - Here's where I give thanks to all the people who have contributed to this FAQ.
Appendix A. Known Bugs and Issues - This is a list I have compiled of known bugs and issues with the Rogue class.
Appendix B. Talent Guide by Oroblram - This is a comprehensive Rogue Talent Guide
Reposting of this FAQ - I have no problem with someone making a copy of this for personal use. But I ask that this not be repost on other sites, and instead linked to. That way I can ensure that this FAQ is maintained in one location. I have put a lot of work into this FAQ, and all I ask for is that it not be copied. This excludes the case of a translation to another language :). Let me know if that happens, though. Would like to see what it looks like translated! :P

First off, I'd like to thank Soni for throwing an FAQ out there immediately after launch. I'm updating this FAQ with everything he has on the other FAQ. I'm going to attempt to get this stickied again.
Koru asked for a Warlock FAQ so I'm starting one. Feel free to post questions and/or answers and I'll try to add them.
Useful Warlock links:
Loads of factual, (almost) always up-to-date info
Test talent builds before putting points in things ingame.
List of all Warlock spells in a very user-friendly format
General Warlock site. Another Warlock forum there.

Comprehensive Warrior Guide v1.0
Posted on 29 March 2005 at 17:00:55 by Ciel. |
Hi everyone, Iíve decided to start writing a guide to the warrior class. Iím a level 60 (yes, my avatar says I'm 59, but that's because I wrote this at 59) warrior, and Iíve played every other class out there, so I know the enemy (and ally, in many cases) well. Thanks to Taav for giving me the idea.
If anyone has any builds, strategies, and such they'd like to contribute, please reply in this thread and I'd be happy to post them (giving you credit, of course).
