Your adventure begins...
Welcome, fellow World of Warcraft adventurers, to warcraftadvisor.com.
Let's face it: WoW is a massively complex game, with choices at every turn that have considerable consequences on the development of your character. Regardless of how long you've been playing, one thing is true: every day brings along something new to learn.
Tweaking your character
One of the neatest aspects of the World of Warcraft is the amount of flexibility you have with your style of gameplay. Some people like to explore on their own, while others prefer to be a part of a group. Regardless of what style suits you, there are always steps you can take to maximize your character's effectiveness at his or her role.
Chief among these is choosing gear—weapons, armor, trinkets, and enchantments, to name a few—that strengthen the skills you use over the ones you don't.
Skill tree points are dealt with similarly, but the intricacies can be greater. This is what Warcraft Advisor can help with.
How do I choose the right skill tree?
Well, that's the million dollar question, isn't it? The answer is obvious: it depends.
Think about the role your character plays. Is he or she a damage dealer, a tank, or a hybrid? Depending on what you want your character to do, strategic placement of skill points can help fine-tune his or her effectiveness.
Many skill tree builds invest heavily in one of the three skill trees available to your character, with a smattering of points placed in either of the other two. Still, some other builds evenly split between two, or even between all three. If you are interested in pre-determined builds, check the links listed below. If you'd like to know more about what each build helps with so you can develop one of your own, then choose a class above and see what it's all about.
All things considered
Skill points only round out the package; they don't make the ride itself. So, do some reading at far more comprehensive resources when you're done here. Links are provided below to the best, most tuned WoW resources out there. This site is just to get you started, and hopefully bring another level of strategy into view that you might've missed so far.
