Want to leap into action with a new class at level 90 but not sure how to begin? In our new videos—one for each of WoW’s 11 classes—we’ll give you a crash course on how to play your new level-90 character. To help you get started, these videos focus on one damage-dealing (DPS) specialization for each class.

After watching Paladin (my main), I am sorry but they failed to explain even the basics."You'll want to keep this on cooldown"Me as a new player: What does that even mean?"Inquisition lasts a while, you will want to keep it up whenever possible"Me as a new player: How would I know if it is up?Also, no coverage of group mechanics. As a DPS, if I run up and fight facing my opponent as these videos show, I am going to die and have no idea why, and no one is going to bother telling me politely. I also watched the hunter, and they didn't explain "pet growl off", another new player must-know.I am glad they covered basic rotation, that's the first thing I look for as a player picking up a toon or returning to a toon left in mothballs; but that isn't enough for a truly "new" player to be able to learn how to play. If they aren't going to cover the rudimentary mechanics of the game's abilities, how do they expect these players to enjoy their first steps and return for more?
I suppose these are for a different audience than people who have been playing for years.
A fair few decent points have been raised, but honestly, what do we expect? Blizz is trying to recruit more players, and honestly, I wouldn't mind taking a boosted 90 myself... I have 4 90's, and I don't always enjoy the long grind from 1-90, but then again, I kinda can't help but wonder if taking the boost would take away that sense of accomplishment! Assuming that accomplishment is something you don't care about, then there is a much, much more vital point to raise: unless you're an experienced WoW player, the likelihood of you being capable of picking up a brand new class straight from the level cap and being ready to jump right into raids is....slim. If you are like a lot of the people I've had the joy of encountering in LFR, you haven't got a clue about a lot of basic things, like FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, DON'T STAND IN THE FIRE. And well, as much fun as it is to scream at people to go back to Zelda to learn basic raid mechanics... it just doesn't seem to work that well. I guess my point is, I don't like the fact that a person is capable of jumping right into tanking or healing (or even dpsing can be a problem if they're epically...er...ignorant) in raids (even if it is just LFR) right from the starting area. It's not exactly fair to the rest of us who have been playing for years, who put blood, sweat and tears into every last one of our 90s and all of their accompanying gear and achievements.... to then be stuck in a group with people who have a boatload of 483 greens, no enchants, who stand in the fire with their pet's growl on, while we're getting dazed by the Aspect of the Pack, and the healers are spamming Rejuvenate on the tank who thinks the sole purpose of tanking is to spam Taunt. Yes, WoW is something that can be picked up quickly. No, you do not need to be perfect. Yes, we welcome new players. Yes, we like new things. But no, we don't like boosted 90s causing wipes. Our nerdrage can only handle so much.
I saw nothing wrong with blizz when mop first started and up until the development of the last few patches its been revealed that blizz doesnt care about the your experiences as you lvl from 1-90 all they care about is money idk if its always been this way or if ive just been naive but a boost to 90 is plain wrong and a year or so ago blizz would go on and on about paying real money for in game money or experience boosting being wrong and would even ban you if you were caught doing so but they can turn right around and do it themselves that is the very definition of what it means to be a hypocrite,It is very likely that if i do buy WoD i will not use the free lvl 90 boost untill i have leveled all of the current classes to 90 first then afterwards i may save it up for when we get more classes. these videos are a good start but they in no way fix the problem of the boost to 90
Lame they only show you one spec...
Hippocrits? Only hunters love hippo crits.
Would be nice if they did other specs too
