The first social step anyone has in WoW
is your Guild
. We've talked about how it can form the core of your player experience, for good and bad
. But, not everyone's lucky enough to have a Guild ready-to-go at everything you might want to do, and what's more, ready at a moment's notice. Many Guilds (rightly so) will expect each members to show some individual initiative, and maybe brave at least a few PUGs
. Well, a pair of tools have popped up recently to help you get set up with people outside the limited scope of your Guild.
As a caveat: Both sites I'm presenting here are relatively new and untried. You're getting in on a ground floor, but we can't promise fame and fortune from them (yet).
