    I would advise to wait until 9.0, the next expansion at least, or like the end of BfA before returning to the game, as of right now everything Is pointless to grind, you'd have to grind lots of reps and quests that are also time gated because Blizz has a boner for those lately. Just wait before you come back on, as of right now the game Is pretty bad and I doubt It'll get better until the next expansion personally, by how much that depends on Blizzard and If they wanna listen to player feedback.

    I've dabbled into Final Fantasy 14 and doing some research on that, and trust me, Square Enix despite some of their own faults and mistakes In the past, took that MMO that launched In 2010, shut It down in 2012 In the most epic way and brought the game back years later WITH player feedback In mind and changed It.

    And you know what, If Blizzard wants to do another WoD content draught style thing, let them. Just do It Blizzard, as long as you change your shiz up and listen to player feedback. Because last time you did a content draught you gave us a piece of grindy shiz called Legion, for the last three expansions It's been nothing but the worst expansions this game has ever seen.
    Banned on WoW since April 2015 because Blizzard doesn't wanna help me when my account got hacked, Is being hacked not a good reason to return my account to me, Blizzard? I'm looking to speak to representatives and members of Blizzard's CS and other departments to help me fix this situation, since CS has failed me I want to seek other official channels. Feel free to message about this

    I'll have a think about it and decide later as the real pull for me is leveling one of the new races from scratch, not sure if im willing to blow the dust off my level 110's for that soul reason.
    They’ll probably greatly reduce or remove the requirement in 8.3 to entice people back in game. I would be pretty surprised if there wasn’t a catch up mechanic in the future.

    As for the time it takes to unlock. Dark Iron took me 14 days. But that before Darkshore, invasions and the war campaign being extended. I imagine you could probably do now in 10 days depending on Warfront cycle and emissaries. Kul Tirans take longer. My guess is around 20 days because you have far less options for rep and are gated more waiting for Proudmoore Admiralty emissaries

    Hope that helps

    Levelling 110-120 ist 20 hrs max if you actually quest (which you should to unlock pathfinder, WQs and your flightmaster whistle as well as the War campaign). To unlock the two Allied races you mentioned, you need to complete the war campaign and be exalted with Proudmore admirality, which really isn't much of a big deal. Then it is some quests and Motherlode 5 man for DI Dwarves.

    Nothing insurmountable and doable in..what..a month?

    7th Legion requires 1week and a half maybe. Proudmoore Admiralty is needed for KT and it might take some more. Then again I'm playing human so diplomacy came handy. Also there are several sources of extra rep like the DM buff, the invasions, every once in a while WQ week etc.

    They didn't hand you WoD or Legion pathfinder and I see no signs of Allied race rep gates being removed. So....you seriously recommend to a guy who thinks of coming back NOW to wait another 18 months on the off chance this will change?

    And don't even get me started on "player feedback". If this forum is any indicator it is a mess and pretty much goes "They didn't listen to memememememe"

    8.2 is coming out soon so i would def suggest buying it now and playing through it to get caught up. You got about ~70 more day till maybe 8.2 so thats plenty of time to get in level up do the war campaign and unlock the new races.

    I would hold off until 8.2, the game is absolutely in the worst state it's ever been right now.

    I also have to say that it took me way longer than 2 weeks to unlock DI dwarfs. It was more like 4 weeks, however incursions weren't a thing at that point.

    Tandred? Could not give two fucks about that one.

    Jaina is a character that was around for so many years through thin and thick, I am glad they made a fitting and touching story for her.

    She got the very resolution I hoped for, instead the usual bull that happened to most W3 characters where they were pretty much wasted in WoW's early and messy days and often in ridiculous fashion at that. Jaina's story in BfA is a proper story at last, as opposed to all the atrocities done to her character over the years.

    Heck, I'm glad it's not yet another prominent Alliance character going neutral crap all over again either.

    I agree. The most interesting part right now imho is leveling and even that is terrible.

    8.2 will definitely make the game better (since there's at least gonna be brand new content).

    He's probably just upset because he doesn't like to see women in positions of power. This forum seems to have a lot of insecure guys.

    As for BFA... it's fun if you have people to play with. If you're gonna be mostly pugging on playing solo, I'd pass it.

    I'll join the 8.2 team, hold off your purchase. The game is not worth its price right now.

    I'm still not exalted with them. It depends how hard you grind and if you play every day.

    If you haven't played since 7.3.5 you're in for a world of not what you expect from levelling. If you have then you know what you're in for. 110 levels of utterly tedious mob killing with essentially zero power gain followed by 10 levels of getting weaker.

    I'll stop when I stop seeing people constantly whining and crying because "there's too many females" in WoW, and making all those toxic masculinity jokes. =p
