If this needs to be moved to a different forum, feel free, but I am just trying to find an active forum to get some questions answered and possibly some direction to returning to the game or finding a new guild on the Arygos server.
I quit WoW right before the Firelands patch, which was apparently June of 2011. Nostalgia and some of the podcasts like Convert to Raid and Tauren Think Tank convinced me to come back before I missed out on Pandaria completely. I have played each expansion for 6 to 8 month before realizing I was in guilds too small to raid seriously, and didn't want to leave friends behind just to see the end content.
However, this time back in the game, I don't know anyone that still plays, horde side of my server is dead, the guild I was in is dead, all the classes were completely reworked, and I'm pretty lost.
Main character on Arygos is Flogg, but I have four other level 85 alts, 2 Horde, 2 Alliance, so my questions are as follows:
1. Is there any reason to go back through Firelands content on any of my toons, whether just to see it or for item quests? Are there still 85's or 90's raiding that content?
2. What current content/factions do I need to work on, which can I ignore? Main is a LW, one alt is an Ench, one blacksmith, so I assume I will need to do some rep grinding for patterns and such.
3. Is there a good place to start searching for a guild in which I can stay on my server as well as work through old content with some likeminded adult gamers who also have work and home repairs and countless other things taking up their time? At level 90 and 481 item level can I just dive into LFR without getting my ass chewed for not knowing all there is to know about the content (assuming I read strategies at the minimum, I don't like watching all the fights before hand, ruins a bit of the intrigue).
I would like to spend 2 or 3 nights really digging into the game, but I am pretty lost with 5.4 hitting a week after I return to the game.
Thanks for any advice.
