There was a discussion in guild chat (SAN-US) a week or so ago about how new players to the game tend to not make it past level 10 before they decide that WoW is not for them. In the course of that conversation the idea was brought up to post about it, so here I am doing just that, from the Rogue perspective. I’ll warn you though, you’re in for a Wall of text.
Having struggled through the starting zone leveling Sam (my first toon), I was surprised at how much easier the “kiddie pool” area in Dun Murogh was this time around. Nothing in the starting area is hostile, so you can pick and aggro what you choose. Because of this, getting to level 5 isn’t too much of a problem. However, getting from 5-10 can be a challenge, and it’s my guess that’s where people lose interest. Today, I’ll talk about my perspective on this issue and throw out some tips / tricks that might make life a bit easier for the lowbie Rogues out there.
