New Player Tips is a recurring feature in which we ask World of Warcraft veterans to share their thoughts and advice for new adventurers on a variety of in-game topics.
This week's topic is: Profession Advice for PvP
As players take their first steps in World of Warcraft, they also head down a path that may inexorably lead to combat with other players. Whether you created your first character on a PvP realm in order to enjoy the constant threat of attack, or simply expect to gain entry into one of Azeroth's many Battlegrounds or Arenas down the road, there are numerous ways to prepare yourself for victory against your fellow players. We're tackling one of the most challenging fields of preparation in today's feature: professions for PvP.
It starts with choice. Which two of the eleven primary professions will help you best address your new character's PvP issues? How much does this choice vary by class and play style? And then there's the challenge of leveling the profession. If you select two production professions, how will you raise the gold to pay for the professions themselves?
Veterans, this is where we turn to you. What is your best advice for new players who want their professions to anticipate their PvP needs? Share your thoughts in the comments below, and gird yourselves for battle!
