Learn how to fish, cook, etc.

If you are a night-elf, it is not a wise idea to be a mage because mage night-elves are weakened by the night-saber and thistle boars in their continent

Learn how to fish, cook, etc.

Go to a trainer and learn the basics. Once you're done with the basic learning, open your ability book. The ability you learned should be there. Drag the ability to your action bar. Once there, click on it and it will probably say what kind of items you need or where to go. REMEMBER: You must have the correct weapons to do this. For example, for fishing you will need a Fishing Rod; and for Mining you will need a Mining Pick. From there, once you reach a certain level in your abilities you can upgrade your weapons.

Advantages of being a warrior 1

It's usually easy to find instance groups because every group needs a tank.

Warlock: Easy kills

When you are a Warlock, use your Fireballs and Drain Soul powers at a time on an enemy. You must do some quests to get some of these powers. REMEMBER: This works most, but not all, of the time.

Enchanting

Give away free Enchants if people provide the materials or wait till you are over level 40 and have a mount and can use it. Then, buy lots of the same materials and repeatedly enchant the same item with the same enchant until it will not level you any more. Then, repeat the process. This will get you to a high Enchanting level quickly.

Character development

For Warriors and Paladins, choose their job as a blacksmith. This will increase their experience faster than any rate. For Priests, Warlock, Mage, or Shaman, choose healing abilities, never blacksmith or fishing. This will slow your experience.

How to beat Vagash

To kill Vagash on the "Protecting The Herd" quest, it is easier just to get a group with a healer ranged and a meat.

Fighting Humanoids

When your fighting a humanoid surrounded by other humanoids (i.e. troggs), move your character to back of your enemy stopping your enemy from running for renforcements.

Getting easy Gold

If you want to get lots of gold go to Thelgen Rock,Wetlands: follow the road from Menethil Harbor east and go towards Dun Algaz. It will be on the western side of the road before you actually hit Dun Algaz. The spiders are lvl 22-23, easy to kill and there are tons of then, inside and out of the cave.
