World Of Warcraft NPCs Guide
In every area of the game, you will come across NPC’s (or non-player characters). These are the in-game toons that will give you quests, offer you training, or allow you to buy or sell loot and these are also the mobs that you will have to kill to get through the game. Here is a breakdown of the different types of NPC’s that you will see in the game and how to identify them:
Green named NPC’s are friendly to you and will offer you quests, training, or something else and will not attack you.
Yellow named NPC’s are neutral to you and will either offer you quests, training, or a place to buy or sell items or they might be a part of a quest that you are on. Normally, they will not attack you unless you attack them first.
Red named NPC’s are hostile to you and will attack you if you aggro them.
In the starting areas of the game, most of the NPC’s that you come across will be friendly and you will gain something from them. The first mobs that you find will normally be neutral (yellow named) and will not attack you unless you attack them first. After you exit the starting area that you are in, you will find both neutral and hostile mobs so you need to be on your toes.
In the next part of this World of Warcraft new player guide, we'll go through some of the basics of leveling, getting experience, and training in the starting areas of the game.
