Re: [MoP] Returning for MoP
said by willardp :In terms of the class, that will depend on you, since you already have the other plate tank/dps classes, you could always try a paladin in order to see how all three play out. If you want something completely different, you will just have to figure what you plan to do.
Hello all, first post here. (as I'm currently in Afghanistan and this website isn't blocked by our filters)
Trying to get some info from the people on this forum about coming back for MoP. I used to be a hardcore raider in BC/LK and am looking to get into casual playing/raiding. How much has changed since then?
I've got an 85 warrior (tank main spec) and an 85 dk (farmer) but quit after both hit 85 about 2 weeks after cata's launch due to deployments and their workups.
I'm thinking about rerolling for MoP (even though I dread having to level up fishing/cooking/first aid again, and purchasing all my flying skills again) and was trying to see what class you guys would recommend. I've had 70's of every class except for warlock/druid so anything and everything is really available.
Is gold really that easy to come by? What's a good dps number to be aiming for in Cata right now? I'd be coming back in a couple of weeks when I leave the sandbox so if anyone wants to send me a scroll and get a sweet mount, please let me know and I'll send you my email!
Gold is much easier to come by, they plan on removing the limit of daily quests you can complete each day, so you can make gold that way fairly easily. Professions are still a great way to make gold if you are on a decent server. Dead servers will be much more difficult.
I hear you about leveling up the secondary skills. The turkey day world event is a great time to power level your cooking, very easy to get to 300 there. For fishing, you can just stay in SW or IF all day and fish, though I would recommend a mod called fishing buddy for double click casting to speed things up. First aid is just a grind, but depending on the class you roll and what you plan to do at end-game, you may not even need to level it except for completion's sake.
I can't say much on the dps number as I haven't been on much lately, but using the addon called recount will let you see how you are standing up to the rest of the raid. I would definitely try out the raid finder for casual raiding and to see how things are going. Of course, elitist jerks has a ton of math behind optimal builds and numbers.
To prepare for MoP I would recommend
1) decide and level the class you want to play first
2) choose and level the professions you want to use
3) get all the glyphs for your toon before the patch since they will go higher upon launch
4) watch some videos of beta footage on quest zones and new class mechanics so you aren't completely lost upon starting the next expac (only if you are concerned with leveling to 90 as fast as you can.
5) HAVE FUN

I am stating my opinion. Obviously you don't like it. Honestly, I don't care.
