Lurking Dangers - Avoiding Deaths in WoW

Better off Dead? No Way!
Better off Dead? No Way!

The World of Warcraft is a dangerous place, and while death is unavoidable in some situations, there are many things you can do to minimize the number of times you die. Even though the World of Warcraft has a very forgiving death penalty, you still want to be careful. If you aren't, you'll very quickly find that you spend most of your play time running back from a grave yard instead of actually playing the game. Byron "Messiah" Mudry helps all the new (and not so new) players avoid a few extra deaths with a guide to the lurking dangers in World of Warcraft.

Watch where you are going - Remember when you were a kid, and your mom yelled at you for running across the road without looking? Chances are if you don't, you lived in a quite country town, or you wouldn't be around any more. The same logic applies for looking where we are going in WoW. We all know this, yet for some reason we all end up dead at the bottom of a cliff, an elevator or in a middle of a group of Mobs we never quite saw. This can be very embarrassing when it happens in the middle of Shattrath with a bunch of guildies around, yet we have all done it.
