Any advice or places to start finding out info? I know absolutely zero about this game. Any good websites you all know about? Good guilds to join?

Just a quick word or two to get me started would be a great help.

Thanks.

I'll post what I have in my 'favorites' for WoW.

http://wow.allakhazam.com/  (database of WoW info)
Almost Heroes forum
Lost Order of Akalbeth forum
http://thotbott.com/  (search engine for WoW info)
http://worldofwarcraft.com/  (official web site)
http://wowvault.ign.com/  (news and info)
http://www.wowwiki.com/Main_Page  (good idea, but I dont think its working out)

I should also include a link to Cosmos.  They make an add-on to the user interface.  I cant imagine playing without it anymore, so it comes highly recommended.

Also, if you are joining us in this fine, fine game, be sure to register your character here.  Check the list, maybe you can start out with a few of your CG buddies.

The best advice is just to jump in with both feet and try everything out.  I've only had the game since last Thursday and I've tried a druid and have 2 seperate lvl 11 hunters on different servers (all different races and professions).  The classes don't really take off until lvl 10 so I would consider most of the 1-9 grind as a tutorial and grind (and you learn where everything is in the zone you start in).  

As for starting...it depends on if you want groups or solo.  If you want groups then pick at least a medium load server...I'm playing on low and a lot of places are just plain deserted.  As for classes it seems the hunter is the class of choice for solo, most of the fighter classes should be middle of the road but very doable and priests are hard to solo as you get higher levels.

I would stay away from PvP unless you really want to get killed constantly early on.  This is especially true is you pick a medium or high population server.  With Blizzard removing dishonor points there are no remaining blocks to high level players going to starting areas and smashing lower level characters into the mud.  The PvE servers still have some aspects of PvP so you won't really miss it.

My advice?  Just have fun!  It's the most fun I've had with a game in years.  Nothing like jumping in to learn.  Don't mind the idiots, there are plenty of nice, cool people playing.

regarding pvp servers, keep in mind that as long as you are in your faction's territory, members of the opposing faction cannot attack you unless you attack them first or aid another player who has their pvp flag on.  it's only in contested and enemy territory that you have to be careful.  and you probably won't be in those areas until your character is in the mid to high teens/twenties.  i've been taking my time with gorkha, my level 22 orc hunter, and have just now (within the last couple of levels) ventured into contested territory.  and even then i've felt relatively safe by turning on my track humanoid ability, staying off roads and trails and keeping my head on a swivel.  and i gotta say, it's pretty exciting to know that the enemy could be just around that bend or behind that hill over yonder.

Blizzard's official web site is better than the manual.  Consider the first ten levels a tutorial.  That sounds like a lot, but it's really only a few hours.
