Not sure if anyone knows this, but I have a question. I’ve been permanently banned from the forums because of how easy the report system is to abuse there (for example, one suspension leading to the ban was for posting about tumblr), but never once been disciplined in-game, or even had a warning. Does that take me out of the running? I think it would be really cool to help new players or just people in general with questions via this system but I’m concerned the forum ban is gonna cause yet another problem for me
This is a wonderful idea that should have been implemented sooner. Unfortunately, the playerbase being the playerbase, as others have pointed out this will most likely have to be scrapped, or the requirements bumped up past the point where the majority of players will want to participate.
I can't wait for this to be abused be people simply looking to have some sort of "prestige" like in FFXIV.
I would be very happy to do this.
Level requirement feels a bit too high - realistically, someone who's been playing the game for 15 years but hasn't quite had time to run all the way to 60 is just as capable (if not more) of answering questions than someone who started playing in BfA that had time to grind to 60 lickety-split. After all, 'Veteran Players' are not based on level, but time in.I'd like to see some requirements based on having played the game for 10+ years, myself, in addition to having an account in good standing, with the level reqs dropped to 51+ (to require people to actually have the latest expansion).

The issue really?You dont want to do it, dont.Its like people who complain about having another chance to earn mounts or currency in game. If you dont want ANOTHER chance to do something in the game, dont do it. Boom. Nothing harming you.
This is literally FFXIV's mentor system. Apparently FFXIV is doing so well that Blizzard has to steal so much from them. Torghast and now this are the newest additions.
Better this than someone asking a question in Trade only to get Removed chat Removed with washed up memes and toxicity . Either way, as long as the special icon is not that special, and there is a way to remove the useless people giving wrong information, this sounds like something cool.
I think this is a great idea. I used to play EVE, and this is very reminiscent of the newbie help channel. I used that channel a great deal to figure stuff out when I was new, and I popped in from time to time as a bittervet to return the favor. Helping new players learn is one of the best and easiest ways to grow the player base and improve the community.
Man, some of you find any excuse to complain. If you can't contribute, just move on. Personally, I help me players who join my guild or ask in trade. I'll be sure to sign up.
Sweet! I love to help new people out!
I've had positive experiences as a returning player with the FFXIV mentor system and can't wait to help out in WOW as a mentor/guide
Woo! I've been wanting this for WoW since I first saw this system in FFXIV
