About WoW @ 60

About WoW @ 60

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Author's Note
The initial idea for this guide came shortly after my first WoW character reached level 60 in March '05. As an MMO rookie who leveled to 60 mostly through soloing or playing with a small group of friends, places like Blackrock Spire and Stratholme were initially a huge mystery. What's the difference between Strat Live and Strat Undead LBRS and UBRS Should I be doing 5-man runs or raiding
As I started figuring everything out, I found a lot of players asking the same questions -- things that automated sites like Thottbot couldn't necessarily answer. So I wanted to build what would essentially be a level 60 n00b guide -- a primer and reference guide to help new 60s get off on the right foot. Hopefully this guide will bring WoW's high-end content into sharper focus for players who might not have experienced guildmates to steer them in the right direction.

It should be noted that just about everything in this guide comes from my own experience, having completed all but 3 or 4 quests covered within. Unfortunately, this means the guide is currently skewed towards the Alliance side, something that will be remedied in the near future (A Horde version of this guide should be posting in the coming weeks). This guide will also continue to grow over time, even when the level cap is eventually raised to 70 -- check the "Under Development" section below for other content already in the works.

Finally, this guide is meant as a community resource. If there's something you'd like to see added or just have general feedback, feel free to drop me a line. Enjoy!

Credits
This guide was far from a one-person project, and would never have seen the light of day without contributions from a number of people, both in and out of WoW. Thanks go to:
Matt "Kindrak" Chandronait for an awesome site design and artwork.
Joost "Silverdawn" Loijens for technical and production assistance.
The guilds Vita Infinita and Reign, who have both been great groups to play with, and made it possible for the many screens of bosses (alive and dead) throughout this guide.
Countless players like Dierdra, Sorata, Ikriti, Isk, Bremmin, Kathrena, Flintlocke and many, many others who were both willing to help with many of the quests and bosses in this guide, as well as making Azeroth a more fun place to live over the past year.
