We already have the "Character Progress Thread" so you may think what is the point of this thread. Wonder no longer, because I am about to tell you!
This is a place for the GW "newbies" in Dii (alliance and forum newbies are also welcome!) to come together, ask for pointers, match up for quests and missions, share stories etc. Basically a place to start out your GW experience without being cramped by people posting their latest Hall of Monuments update.
Note that this is not meant to be a place to ask for (or offer) runs through the game. This is for people wanting to play through the game normally, but who may want a little guidance and companionship along the way.
Here are some general pointers to start you off:
The official Guildwars Wiki can be accessed by pressing F10 in game (careful with spoilers).

ID White items
Collector Items and Weapons
There are dedicated traders for: dye, rare and common materials, runes and insignia and scrolls. There are no traders for inscriptions or weapon mods.
Always check the trader prices before salvaging runes, selling stuff to merchants or trading with players. Especially important for dyes, since they can sell for several thousand (black dye) to traders whereas the merchant only gives 1 measly gold.
And beyond all, don't be shy (we don't bite, unless you are hiding bacon ) and have fun!
I may add other helpful things to this post in the future, if anyone has a suggestions please share.

[EDIT]Looking for something else, I just saw this guy's channel on Youtube. Apparently he is quite famous, I just never saw any of his videos before. He has a lot of GW guides up, including a guide to beginners, how to rune your armor, how to make a build and other stuff. Kinda neat.
