There are some questions in World of
Warcraft that you should just never ask another player. Like an
unwritten set of rules, most players know that these questions are
just not to be asked. Typically players learn these pretty quickly or
come into the game already aware of them. However, much like in real
life, it seems that some players never get the memo and they blurt
out these questions to both friends and strangers a like.
When confronted with these questions
myself, I tend to fall back on the handy ignore feature in the
game. Other players are not so delicate and spew off nasty messages
to the perpetrators of these questions. Some may claim that these
outbursts are unneeded and even uncalled for, but after hearing these
same set of questions over and over again a little outrage is to be
Below you will find five of the worst
and most notorious questions that when asked cause players to
instantly face palm. Enjoy!
Top 5 Questions in WoW Sure to Annoy
Can you run me through <Insert
While this is a perfectly find question
to pose to a friend, this question is typically spammed to complete
strangers. I cannot count the number of times I have had a player who
I have never met before ask me to run them through an instance via
whisper. The worst part is that even if you politely say no, the
player will beg, plead, and even call names to get you to do their
bidding. While this question is not exceptionally rude, asking random
strangers for an instance run and not taking no for an answer is not
the way to go about this.
Can you give me gold?
Instead of earning their own gold,
sometimes players decide that instead they should take the easy route
and just ask others for it instead. This question has probably lead
to more face palms than any other in game. While gold has gotten
easier to come by in the game, we still have to work for it, and
certainly don't want to be handing it out for free. Especially when
this question comes from someone we have never spoken with before.
Sure we might lend a friend in need some gold to get that mount they
want, but it is highly unlikely that anyone has ever given gold to a
beggar sending out random whispers.

Can you power level me?
This question goes along the same lines
as asking for an instance run, except in some respects it is a little
more presumptuous, especially when this question is posed to a
stranger. Let's face it, power leveling in World of Warcraft (even
now) can be a tedious task. It takes copious amounts of instance
running and mob killing to get a character to max level and making
this request of a complete stranger is just plain crazy. This is
especially true if, as mentioned above, the question asker refuses to
take no for an answer.
Will you be my friend?
This whisper seems harmless enough,
until you sit down and really think about it. It is true, everyone
wants to have friends, especially in a social game like World of
Warcraft. Nevertheless, wandering around asking random people to be
your friend probably isn't the way to earn lasting friendships. In
fact it will probably have the opposite result. If you want to find
true friendship in the game run instances, join in guild
conversations, and PvP. Asking for friendship is simply not the way
to go about it, it needs to happen all on it's own.

Where is Mankrik's wife?
Back in the early days of World of
Warcraft, before the Cataclysm and the dissolution of this quest,
there was a quest called Lost in Battle. This quest was given by the
now infamous Mankrik and directed the player to seek out his wife,
who had fallen in battle. To be fair, the quest really offers no real
direction to her location, however, after seeing this question
spammed over and over via whisper, Trade Chat, Barrens General Chat,
and even in say, it tends to get a little bit old.
As if Barrens chat wasn't already bad
enough. Usually, I don't mind helping out players looking for things,
but this is an exception to the rule. Especially considering that
players would ask this question within minutes or even seconds of
each other, making it an especially annoying feature of old school
That concludes our list of the top 5
questions in WoW sure to annoy other players. As you can see most of
the questions above are rude and presumptuous, which is why players
get so annoyed when asked them. Perhaps the above list will help
prevent these questions from being asked at least a little bit. Have
