Yeah, they're on Aggramar. So am I. Please try to contain your excitement.

Also, don't confuse E X O D U S with The Exodus - one is pro and the other contains rusty old Mukkers.

Fuck it then lads, Jen and I are gonna re-start our pandas on Aggramar I reckon (as long as you all promise to give us money for mounts) x

Sure. My battle tag is Cowfields if you want to, uh, beg.

You could just shell out a transfer for one character, and send them packing with as much shit and gold as you can and share it out.

Blizzard really made a ton of money out of my character transfer. I was all casual like but after a while just got frustrated at useful characters being unreachable and ended up transferring 3 in the end. At least it's a pretty smooth process

No worries if you guys need a helping hand but gold's so easy to come by now you probably won't need anything. I started over from scratch, made about 20k questing to 90, had a grand old time. Plus any mounts you already have are account wide, so you just need the cost of the skill.

Plus anyone obsessed with getting certain outfits like me is guaranteed to make thousands more just vendoring stuff from 60-85 raid bosses while you work on getting the perfect belt to match your latest ensemble. Shit, I spent more on transmogs this week than I did on repairs, and still more than broke even.

If you're going to start Wow, can you send me your e-mail? I can get bonuses if you sign up from Recruit reward :D

If you're looking for a guild you can join us (Horde side) on the Draenor server - or there's other forum related guilds around

I played this back in the day and was thinking of picking it up again - what do I need to actually pick up? Is there some sort of mega-pack with all the expansions in or am I going to have to buy them all individually?

If you're using the same account as you used in the past then you're automatically upgraded all the way to the last-but-one expansion for free, you don't need the battlechest at all. You'd just need to buy Warlords of Draenor when the time comes, or immediately if you want the free L90 boost straight away.

PaulM's right btw if you can recover your previous account that will save you £10 and give you a good luck at the current state of the game.

Think you're need to resub from the off though (~£8 for 30)

Alternatively if you wanted to dip your toe for free it's F2P to level 20 - but you'd miss out on lots of social features that help the game.

Started again last night and finished the panda 1-10 zone. Didn't enjoy it as much as the goblin one tbh. I like how at the end you're like "Oh hey these Horde guys seem decent, I'm gonna hang out with them for a bit", then you get to Orgrimmar and Garrosh gives you a pep talk in full Hitler mode but for some reason you don't say "Ok maybe I'll just go back to that massive happy turtle actually because this guy is fucking mental".

Will probs pester Mike for an invite if we manage to get on again tonight.

It's okay you get to fuck him up except not really because you missed Siege of Orgrimmar.

Neither did I because I missed that one, which is frustrating because fuck that guy.

At least it was kind of cool picking a side rather than just being horde or alliance by default.

I tried the goblin one but got as far as the shipwrecked part and never went back. Tirisfal Preservation Society for life, bub. It was grand, I met some mental Scarlets zombie chick who ran around one shotting crusaders, hung out with the Boss Lady while she dissed Orc Hitler whenever his back was turned, and rampaged with some snazzily dressed dudes through some crappy city full of Victorian cockney furries.

Eastern Kingdoms best kingdoms.

The default UI is pretty good these days, you can move the default unit frames about, the raid frames are pretty good and combat text is built in. However things I miss when I don't have them:

Bags : http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/ark-inventory

Mail : http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/postal

Chat : http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/prat-3-0

Handy Notes : http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/handynotes & http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/handynotes_draenortreasures

More advanced stuff you probably won't need to start off with.

Weakauras 2

Vuhdo (Healing)

Tidy plates

Deadly Boss Mods

Pitbull unit frames

Bartender

Quartz

Skada (damage meter)

Other things for you to consider;

Horde/Alliance both have a good mix of story.

The "old world" zones have been redone, all largely have good stories now (although some much better than others. If you go Horde though definately go to Silverpine Forest for story.). Leveling is quick/easy now, so you can keep going to new zones as you level up or finish each zones story

Racial abilities have been nerfed/standardised - so there's little benefit other than flavour/look etc over each

Classes have Dual Spec etc now and every one should have a good viable leveling spec (leveling is easy anyway :P)

PvP vs PvE server - personally would go PvE

https://realmpop.com/ - will help you pick a server with a good population for whatever faction you choose (the invite I've sent you will tell you about Muk Guild on PvE Draenor server - but you might want to go elsewhere)

Having run out of episodes of House of Cards, I went LFRing last night to stockpile focus runes for the inevitable day we bang our heads Gul'dan or whoever. Naturally, the game decided to shower me in loot I don't need instead, pah. Oh well.

It's funny though, unless you're a tank, you're almost literally never really in danger of going under 60% health yet people still managed to get killed on some of the fights (mainly the Twin Ogron and Oregorger, who was predictably hilarious as usual) and it's just boggling to wonder how they manage it.

How's everyone doing on the old Khadgar's Awful Shopping List front? 240 down, only 660 to arggggg. Next time, I'm just letting Garona shank the bastard.

1 Tablet, 36 runes. Mainly due to good luck with work orders and getting 20 odd runes from bosses in BRF during the first week, apparently not a bug just rare like the stone clusters. Also helped getting 9/10 down consistently every reset. Done the 3 other quests that require a thingymabob. Currently working on doing the quest that buffs you so you get access to Blackhand without doing all the other bosses, will be handy for the eponimus tier token he drops.

Literally can't wait for the obviously next tedious part of the quest...

I'm more skeptical about the usefulness of a legendary follower with a "unique" trait to be honest. It's gonna have to be pretty damned unique to be useful to me at this stage since I've been sat on 25/25 level 100 650 ilvl geared followers for ages now. Bash out the rune/grandiose weapon/highmaul missions every week easily with loads to spare for randomly completing missions towards the achievement, don't really see what another follower can bring.

Nub Hunter question.

I'm using a macro at the minute that tells my pet to attack and starts autoshotting at the same time. Which is useful for single mobs but when I want to cc I don't necessarily want my pet to be attacking the same target as me. Is it better to have 2 separate macros on hotkeys for better control of pets or leave it as one? I'm guessing with all the cooldowns a hunter has my keyboard shortcuts are going to be at a bit of a premium.

It's just a bit of fun?

Anyway. Didn't they say something about more missions anyway? I am sure that when the next tier of content comes out they will raise the follower cap and missions will be something you do again. Could be at that point you'll be thankful for having the legendary follower. Think a bit longer term.

I haven't been able to get 100% chance on a mythic mission yet although I've not lost one. But it'll be nice if the legendary makes them a bit more certain.

Think you read my message as more of a go. I'm sure people will find it fun, I just don't like garrisons really. That, and 6.1 really does seem like such a waste of a content patch. Selfie cameras, twitter integration and a short questline that gives a new follower. Just seems like something they'd normally add in maintenance rather than a whole numbered patch.

Hunters don't have cooldowns anymore, and pets automatically stop attacking their target if it gets CCed.

Also, you don't need that macro as pets can now be set to 'assist' mode so they always attack whatever you do.

Yeah I did notice that, just wondered if it was worth having such a fastidious level of close control. Is there some sort of shot rotation I should be going with? I'm just soloing crap at the minute and having a fairly easy time of it (I've died twice to quest group bosses when I got cocky but that's it) and wondering if I should be thinking about my rotation for when it gets *really* fiddly.

Also I don't understand glyphs.

Okay I'm done.

I get that. I agree it's a non patch. I mean, it's non content. But the version number is irrelevant if there ain't no dungeons or raids. They're just eeking out the legendary quest I guess. Better that there's a follower than just more arbitrary quest hand ins I suppose.

The thing is I guess is garrisons is such a big deal now, if you don't like it that could be quite jarring and they don't seem to be about to change it... they put a lot of effort into garrisons being a thing, seemingly at the expense of more traditional grind content. Personally I love that there is a bunch of administration and clicking now instead of going out and Killing n of x daily because the game seems so much healthier for me than it used to when I was "hardcore".

I guess that means I agree it's weak content. I just want to raid without pressure to do more. Min maxing feels so easy now.

Thing is if you want to maximise elemental runes you're essentially forced to interact with garrisons every day whether it's the missions or fulfulling all work orders. Agreeably, it doesn't take long but I generally don't like it. That might just be me though, more grumpy than normal atm.
