I belive there are several. A quick search on game brought up these "wow guide" - GAME.co.uk
Does anyone know if there are any guide books on WoW? I'm gettign into it a bit now, but get miffed that if I need any info I have to look online, which detracts from the gameplay somewhat. I don't want a breakdown on how to do quests etc, just about general gamplay how to's, commands etc. Is there such a book as I can't find one anywhere.
You can get some cool mods to help you in-game with navigation, help with quests etc... I don't think one guide could cover it all capably
For beginners the in game pop up help system is actually quite decent now for teaching you the basics of how spells/talents/combat works. Due to the nature of the game and how it is constantly changing the various websites dedicated to warcraft do become almost essential and i would have to say a book would probably not be much use for more then a couple of months after buying it.
And you only need to drink/eat to recover mana/health not for any survival reasons
I have a addon that will help you, I will dropbox it tonight.
TomTom is helpful, as is QuestHelper - and Atlas Loot.
all paper guides are out of date next patch, the best place I find is Video Game Cheats, Reviews, FAQs, Message Boards, and More - GameFAQs as people like to update guides often. Seems to be a large community of people who play just to write guides.
Also make use of sites like thottbot.com too ... and get yourself in a guild which is newbie friendly ... not many of them around unfortunately. I also subscribe to the WoW magazine (4 a year ... when they get publish on a regular basis that is) but they do have some interesting backgrounds to the storylines which can be helpful too.
Some useful websites:
www.wowwiki.com - Massive amounts of information about every aspect of the game. Useful for Beginners and Experienced players.
www.wowhead.com - The place to look up items, spells, recipes etc.
elitistjerks.com/forums.php - The goto resource for end game raiding and theorycrafting. Not for beginners.
Unfortunately written stuff gets out of date fast in WoW, it moves on pretty quickly in terms of tactics.
The best bet is to find the advice forum for your class. Prot Paladins for example will use Maintankadin, other classes have their own independant community boards that have popped up over the game's lifetime. They offer plenty of guides and advice but are hard to find as there is no central list of good boards.
If you have an IRL friend who can come round and show you the basics, that would be a good option.
The rest you can learn on the fly & chat with fellow gamers on various issues on things like good addons etc
As people say, books are out of date as soon as they are published and with so many patches / updates for wow, websites usually have the most up to date info
