Ultimate WoW Guide: Gold, Leveling, and More

October 2, 2010 by · 18 Comments 

Welcome to Zug Gaming’s very first blog carnival! The theme of this month’s carnival is Help a Noob Day!

At some point we were all new to WoW, and chances are that someone was kind enough to help set you straight on how things go down. So this month we’re returning the favor by offering new players a complete resource developed by some of the best WoW bloggers out there. Each and every one of these guides was developed by a top WoW blogger, author, or guide writer.

These guys know their stuff…trust me. One final note before we hop in. A big thanks to Markco of Markco’s 20k Leveling. He originally gave me the idea, so we can all thank him in part for this event. He’s also been gracious enough to sponsor our event. If you haven’t already make sure to check out Markco’s 20k Leveling Guide. It’s the ultimate guide to make insane gold using tactics Markco has developed over years of extensive gaming.
