I know there's a probably a ton of threads answering the questions I'd like to ask but they are all over the place, usually very objectively posted and hard to find (or I'm looking wrong...)
Anyway, I've been playing pretty much from Vanilla till about half way Cataclysm, being everything from a hardcore raider in Vanilla and TBC and casual raider / pvp'er in the later expansions. There's no particular reason I quit, just needed time off to do other stuff, the news from Pandaran was a bit offputting for me and therefore I never bought it (talent changes for one).
Lately though I've been thinking about returning, dunno why, just feel like I miss it sometimes, even though pretty much all my friends have quit I still feel like I might enjoy it again.
I've got a few questions about the game in its current state though, and what I've read about it is all rather vague and confusing to me, so any constructive answers would be welcome
1. First and foremost, the dailies, I personally detest dailies, I can do them for a while but not too long at a time. How important are they really in current WoW? Can you enter dungeons / heroics and later on LFR without doing any dailies? If not, how many dailies would I be looking at?
2. Queue times, are they long for dps for regular dungeons / heroics? (I kinda assume tanks and to lesser degree healers still have a near instant queue?)
3. Heroic dungeon difficulty, I read rumours of heroic dungeons returning to WotLK-style diffulty, did that happen or do you actually need some half decent gear to faceroll them?
4. Are there currently any specs which are considered useless and might get you kicked from dungeons for just being them or are things not that bad? (mainly interested in Paladin, Death Knight, Warlocks and Mage specs, are any of their specs considered useless?)
That's all I can think of from the top of my head. Thanks a lot for taking time to answer any of those questions of mine!
