Going to Northrend for the holidays
It's the day after Christmas. A fair portion of our readership is only now getting Wrath of the Lich King installed on their computer, especially after the gift exchanges of the last few days. Over the weeks since Wrath's release, we've had quite a bit of content to ease you through your first steps into Northrend. With this latest wave of people hitting the frozen shores for the first time, it's a good opportunity to look back on a lot of that.

Flight Paths and Exploration
New lands, new things to see, new places and ways to get lost! Below are our simple guides to the flight paths in many of the zones in the new continent, as well as directions to the new capital, the mage city of Dalaran.
Factions and Reputation
Every player is likely familiar with the reputation system by now, but Wrath of the Lich King's factions have received a little bit of streamlining. At the same time, a few of the factions are a little harder to find, or figure out your first time seeing them. Listed below are our guides to these reputations.
PvP hasn't quite hit its stride yet in Wrath of the Lich King with the new arena season having only begun a week ago, but the new outdoor PvP zone Wintergrasp is attracting players of many different playstyles. It has a lot to offer, and you can find much of it in our guides below along with tips for other aspects of Wrath PvP.
Essential Death Knight Reading
Did you reroll for Christmas, or are you planning to level a Death Knight as an alt? There's a lot you can learn about this new class, and a lot you should learn! Listed below are the basics, and if you're looking for more information our weekly Death Knight column Lichborne and our full Death Knight info page are great places to look.
Looking for more?
This is all likely a bit of an information overload if you're first stepping into Northrend (or first rolling your Death Knight), but we have a lot of resources we've been working on for you to use throughout your adventures. Our various class columns are jam packed full of information, and we also have a couple of series running: Wrath Dailies and Wrath 101. The former is, of course, walkthroughs for the various daily quests in Northrend, and the latter are simple guides to just about everything you can imagine. Both are works in progress, but already full of great stuff!

We have all of those guides gathered up in one little place, if you'd like. A full page of Wrath guides, oh boy! Oh joy! Okay, it's not that exciting, but it sure is convenient, isn't it?
