Azeroth -- It’s a land of turmoil, harsh and unyielding for heroes of the Horde and the Alliance as they struggle against enemies from within and without. For those stepping forth for the first time into this implacable realm, life can seem overwhelming, but surviving in this hostile environment is not insurmountable with a little help. Will your band of brothers and sisters, heroes and mentors, heed your call for aid?

The Guild Mentoring Program is Blizzard monitored program that identifies guilds on select realms (US and EU) to act as mentors for new and low level players (below level 85). Participating guilds must commit for 4 months (US realms) or 3 months (EU realms) and be willing to have a name change during that time. Blizzard has not clarified the criteria for which realms were selected.
