I recently recruited a friend to WoW. I was pleased to get the new mount - but I think the treasure is going to be the friend I recruited. He's started a blog about a newcomer's experiences in WoW, that I think will be helpful for others long in experience who want to bring newcomers into the game, and can hardly remember what a newbie needs to be told!
So I recommend his blog to you - just his choice of modified quotes to start and end his first blog post is worth the read.
"Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The gryphon cannot hear the flight master..."
"And what rough beast, its level reached at last
Slouches towards Pandaria, ready to respawn?"http://slouchingtowardspandaria.blogspot.com/
