If you want to be a guide to new players in World of Warcraft, it behooves you to first know what you’re doing. The game’s mentor system was introduced with the pre-patch to Shadowlands, but with the upcoming patch 9.0.5 on the test server it’s going to be a little bit harder to be a mentor. Not much harder, mind you; you’ll just need to prove that you’ve been both actively playing and that you have a decent idea of how the game works.
Players will need to be level 60 and have at least 3,000 quests completed. In addition, any prospective mentor must have any two from the following achievement list: beat every Castle Nathria boss, have three different classes at maximum level, have reached a minimum of 1800 rating in rated PvP, finish a covenant campaign, or complete every Torghast wing at Layer 8. So there are a lot of ways to make that mentor status if you want it, but you’ll need to do more to ensure that you deserve it.
