Imho, more achievements required must be more of a long term dedication oriented. Anyone can get a +15 boost package or get 3 characters levelled to 60 in a week. Curve costs 100k these days. I do very much like the 3k quests part.
I like the mentor system. I don't have the issues some of you have encountered. Almost all communication is in English and the channel is mostly used for what it is designed for, asking questions. It is a fun addition to the game, I like helping newbies on their journey into Azeroth.Also, wave to Gor’groth
Frankly, I have been giving very useful information. Only a couple of times people started to engage in general discussions about crap but they immediately stopped when I told them to, as it isn't the point of the chat. There are some repeated questions like "how to get (back) to Zandalar" that should be compiled as a FAQ easily accessible in the UI, in my opinion.As a very old player, it's refreshing also to see newbies.
I think to be a mentor you should have a max level character without boosts. That's it.There use to be a mentor program in WOW. It was called Guilds and if you were in one, veterans would help out the newbies or other members who needed help on a quest or dungeon.One of the first guilds I was in years ago even sent me gold to buy an item I really needed and all they asked was to pay it forward when I could.
its just another channel to sell boosts unfortunately
Half a year is a bit of an exaggeration mate.....
Is there a reward for being a mentor?
I play on a russian realm and honestly the system works good there. There are constantly new players asking questions and people answering them (and countless of waves) and everyone there is friendly. Didn't know that it sucked everywhere else.
Yay! More requirements to see newly created accounts spamming ads.
Trust me you don't need this achievements for Guide. All the time I just explain to people how to use /wave and how to get somewhere...No beginner needs advices about raids, but basic things. How to use AH, how to use emote Wave, how to get in main city... etc.List of required achievement is totally off.
can't wait for brand new players to receive advice from people that have leveled a bit and do LFR.
I tried to be a mentor, but the chat is a mess tbh, new people are just bombarded with gold selling spam, twitch ads, and "mentors" treacking them with wrong advice to jebait them thinking it's funny. I was tired of it, left the chat and I pray for the actual poor souls that want help.
report all the trolls and spams, as of now the chat is very respectful and clear of bad intention, we as guides instantly report any troll and either the player gets instant muted/removed from the chat or even banned.
i hate that some new players with the murloc icon above their head or in chat are just people with new characters or new accounts or bank alts and they know everything already. It seems to be a lot more veterans in the chat than new comers. I dont remember seeing anything in the tutorial of exiles reach on how to switch chats to ask veterans questions. Could this be the problem? Also a lot of newcomers ask for help in a dungeon or for a rare and we learn its for a specific class quest or its for exiles reach which we can not get into to help. Like i remember seeing someone ask help to kill the bear rare and no one could help. Which made the person feel bad. We tried to tell them to skip it and continue leveling and either ignore it or come back to it but they felt bad they missed the quest when they left. They were also a little lost later after exiles reach on what to do and where to go. I feel like they should have a tour guide quest around orgimar/stormwind to show them and explain what they can do at those locations. Maybe have a guide telling them how to filter tracking to beasts or to townsfolk. I can see how this can frustrate people and make them leave the game right off the bat.
