Steve Haines: Hi, I am Steve Haines World of Warcraft expert. I am showing you some of the basic steps for leveling a character in the World of Warcraft. Today, let's talk about character creation. So, let's start at the beginning with character creation in the online game. When you first log into your account you will find this screen. You then populate that screen with new characters by clicking on the create a new character button. This then gives you a list of characters to choose from. Right now, it is pre-selecting a gnome which is a member of the alliance. The Alliance are the game's good guys. You can have a gnome, a Draenei, a night elf, a dwarf or a human on the good guys, the dark side of the World of Warcraft are the Horde. They are the Orc, the undead, the Tauren, the Troll or the blood elf.
You can go on the World of Warcraft website www.worldofwarcraft.com and search for what kind of racial and class distinctions you find to your preference between those characters. In this case, I will choose just a blood elf rogue as our character and you can come up with any name that you want. They will tell you whether or not that name is taken. So, let's call this character since he is a rogue with a dagger we will call him stabby. You then have the option of changing his skin color making him as light or dark or whatever tint you want. You have to choose many options. You can choose his facial features whichever ones are best for you. Change the hairstyle many options, make him as anime as possible, his hair color and then facial hair. You have to choose from, well basically, with the blood elf you are getting to choose from any degrees of goatee.
So, we will create this character and enter the World of Warcraft. Once you have entered the world you will find yourself in the starting zone. This is where the magic happens. This is the beginning and this is where we pick up with quests. That was character creation. Coming up, let's take a look at the user interface in the World of Warcraft game.
