Re: WoW for complete MMORPG beginners I'm going to agree with previous post, depending on class try to stay outside overall mob area and used range attacks to pull the mobs you want. Sometimes you'll pull a few but if far enough away you can run like hell. If you are playing warrior or pally then pulling two or three at lvl 7 fighting same level enemies shouldn't be an issue. Warriors bore me but it was fun wiping out 3-5 guys in one fight.(potions of course)
Learning to fly is not so hard. The hard part is learning to hurl yourself towards the ground at break neck speeds and missing.
