Learn to play World of Warcraft in just two minutes

World of Warcraft is a very different game at level 90 then it is when you’re a fresh-faced newb with hundreds of hours of learning ahead of you. For those of you opting to take Blizzard’s insta-level offer and skip straight to end-game, here’s what you need to know.


Over on Battle.net, Blizzard has ut together a series of videos giving you a “crash course” in playing each of the MMORPG’s 11 classes at level 90. We’ve dropped the Rogue version in below.

Each video lasts about two minutes and gives you guidance on how to play one kind of DPS (damage per second) specialisation. It’s probably the easiest role of the “holy trinity” of tank, healer and DPS for new MMORPG players to get the hang of, as all you need to focus on is attacking the right targets. That’s not to say it’s easy though; aggro the wrong enemies and your raid mates won’t be very pleased.

Each of the 11 classes is capable of multiple roles beyond this single DPS model, but the videos are a pretty good place to start if this is your first time playing WoW. And now that you can buy in straight to level 90 with Warlords of Draenor, you don’t even have the “short of time” excuse to keep you away from one of the modern industry’s most important touchstones.
