What’s going wrong? Easy guides for new DPS players of every class and spec in WoW

Being a new World of Warcraft player is hard. There’s a lot to remember, and a lot of new information to take on board. If you’re struggling with a new class or a new role, if people are shouting at you or being mean to you and you don’t know why, or if you simply want to stop making common, easily-avoidable mistakes, have a look at our guides, below.

Alternatively, if you have a player in your party who could use a few tips or is clearly doing something very wrong – the classic “Hunter in melee wearing cloth”, for example – point them to this page. That way you’ll get some friendly help for them, and some increased DPS, less inappropriate “need” rolls or more CC for you!
