Blizzard unveiled a new community program today called “The Guild Mentoring Program.”
The goal is to identify guilds who can take new low level players under their wing, invite them to their guild and teach them all about the World of Warcraft.
The current list of realms selected for the program are here:
US and Oceanic
EU EN Realms
EU DE Realms
EU FR Realms
To be selected as a Mentor Guild, you must meet the following criteria:
- Be located on one of the selected realms
- Be able to commit to the program for the 3 months
- Willing to change your guilds name for the duration, which can be changed back afterwards
- Your guild must be at least level 6 and have an active membership
There are lots of nice perks for guilds who want to participate. MVP forum status and private forum access, as well as recognition for participating in the program.
Only one guild per faction will be selected on each realm. If this sounds like something you’re interested in, check out the full Q&A here on the WoW blog.
This is a great way to help people learn the ins and outs of WoW before they get to 85 and get lost in the maze of LFD and a great chance to make some friends in game.
What do you guys think? Do you wish this program was in place when you were new to Azeroth?
