First off, I'm a casual gamer. I would like to someday live up to the status quo of hardcore and top the PvE/PvP charts. But I currently feel that I may not have that much time and dedication towards that. I have had wow experience since the get go, active/inactive. I always get the tendency to come back after being inactive to enjoy the game again. I'm sure it's like this for other wow players around the world. I haven't been playing since Cata. Even when Cata was in play, I didn't get to enjoy the Cata raid content much. I've always been in raid guilds, but that wasn't enough. I would always sign up weekly, but never make it to core group. I would also meet the gear and DPS requirements as well. Regardless, I'm always looking for a team to commit to through raids and PvP.
Back in Cata, Blizzard implemented the LFR tool. I queued whenever possible, while doing my dailies. Either it just never seemed to work for me or maybe the feature was still new at the time.
I always had a deep passion for the rogue class. I use worldofwargraphs to help me determine some things. I'm completely basing this speculation off the rogue forums from the official site, and the class does not seem to be in good standing right now. Pertaining to PvE and PvP, the rogue class seems to be having a nice warm seat in both charts. When I was active in Cata, rogues seem to be doing alright. I am considering that it's been a while since then. I remember when we use to top the DPS charts, however I'm not so certain about now. I have been looking into wow a little, just to get a brief insight of what's currently going on. As far as I know, there's a patch coming up very soon. I'm still a little shy about returning.
I'm currently a Diablo 3 player. I grow bored of the game every now and then because it gets repetitive very quickly. Diablo 3 just feels very limited, not enough content to meet my needs. I currently have 250m on me. I'm waiting to sell off a few other items in value, and in hopes to get around 330m ideally. I would very much somehow like to transfer my ingame currency to real currency or forum gold at d2jsp. My plan is to transfer my real currency to my Paypal to buy MoP (if I find myself enjoying it) and possibly some monthly subscriptions, or into forum gold at d2jsp.
Here are my questions regarding this post:
Is being active in a guild still the best possible way to achieve top tier gear or will LFR work just fine?
How is the LFR tool working for anyone else?
Since when did the rogue class get nerfed, and why?
(It just doesn't seem like most people choose to play them now, based off worldofwargraphs. Either they were FOTM for a good while or there are just flat out better DPS dealers. I'm sure a class has to have its advantage to be FOTM though.)
Will the upcoming patch completely flip the shit out of the rogue class so we'll be looking forward to better days?
Overall, is MoP worth the purchase?
What is the safest approach to take if I'm looking to change my ingame currency from Diablo 3 out to either d2jsp or Paypal?
For the Alliance or Horde? (If I consider returning)
