    Returning after 2 years...

    I've been out of the game for about 2 years now and looking to start back up with my 80 mage. Talents and JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING is different now...any suggestions for leveling? I was thinking frost, looks like talent builds have been dumbed down alot. Almost tempted to just restart a panda from level 1 just to get used to the new crap...

    First of all, I suggest you take a look at http://www.icy-veins.com There is a very good guide there that explains every new Talent/spell/glyph on every spec. A lot of things have change and leveling from 1 is a good Idea so you get used to new mechanics and talent system. The Pandarean quests are fun as well.
    It will be ok I guess if you want to level your current Mage since 80-90 will take you much less time and all quests are new to you.
    Frost is a good Idea to level as the utilities and cc that it provides will help you go faster. Good luck with your new Adventures in Azeroth!

    If you're not used to the game after all of this time, I'd suggest questing 85-90 as frost. More survivability and less room for mistakes

    My honest advice? Pick up a different class, and retire your mage until GC pulls his head out of his ass.
    Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.

    these are my favorite types of responses (didactic). i killed dps meters in BC (pre cold snap etc) to prove people wrong on cookie cutter superiority.
