Hello all! I started a druid recently and got him to 30, and really enjoyed resto and balance. However, my friend recently quit and offered to give me his druid which is level 80. While I already have a 90 and know the game fairly well, will jumping into the druid at level 80 leave me at a disadvantage since I didn't level the class fully and don't really know it? I feel like I'm having it handed to me on a silver platter, and I may not be able to adequately play it because I missed out on the leveling experience, learning the ropes and such. Also, the fact that I personally didn't level it makes me feel like I didn't really earn it. Anyone have any advice (aside for the number of a competent shrink lol :P)? Thanks!
I can't speak for not feeling like you own the character but I can say that I leveled my druid in wrath only through dungeon grinding as bear. Then once I hit 80, I learned cat and tree. I didn't really learn boomie until DS. So I can def say you can learn the other specs from an end game perspective and love it.
Advice? Pick a class and read its guide (from this forum). If its a dps class go play on dummies till u get comfortable with the rotation. If its a healer you could prob go heal BGs (since if you die/messup it won't wipe ur group) and when u get confortable go do dungeons? Also, you can buy boes to help a bit...

$100 says he's back in a month :P but as to your question, as others said 80-90 is plenty of time to learn a class. With my 80s and 85s I feel like I have to completely re-learn them when I go to level them to 90.
