Yeah, I said it. Long story short, I think I might reinstall this game and just level up a character over the summer. I'm going to start from scratch and just play the game so long as I enjoy it. Seeing as how I a) haven't played the game in approximately 15 years and b) barely remember how to play, I have a couple of three questions (as a high school teacher of mine used to say):

1) horde still better in pug pvp?
2) any fundamental changes I need to know about as I start a new character?
3) is anyone even in azeroth anymore (not that I really care, soloing is generally fine)?

WoW imo

Because of the huge increase to experience gain from quests and the 30%+ reduction in experience needed each level up to 70, it's very easy to level.

The only change is that you should just level a DK.

Yes, horde are overpowered in pvp.

Fuck DK. Yeah, I said it.

I think I'm going to level a shaman... had fun up through lvl 20 or something on a shaman in the past.

Troll shaman... cause trolls own bitchess.

With super fast leveling, won't it be hard to make enough money to buy shit?

Now I need to find a server to roll on.

Picking a server without knowing anything about the current state of the game is hard, imo.

Like Draenor.

Maybe I'll just roll another priest since I already know I like priest healing.

Also, NUGGZ! poor bastards...

Seriously, how do you play WoW? For the life of me, I can't freakin remember.

I just don't have the touch... at all, anymore. The talents are all weird and confusing... and there are a lot more of them than I remember.

I mean, I used to be very facile with the game, I'm not I'm bumbling around like a noob.

/sigh

Yeah... I don't know if I should try to pick up with my 54 druid, 70 priest, or just straight up start over at lvl 1 on a fresh new server and just try to learn to play again (even though I'll have to solo the first 70 levels of the game).

Clearly we need to all start playing on Draenor as a form of DOOMSolidarity.

Even if DOOMCom is dead, it lives on inside us. And maybe on Draenor.

So I'm kinda sorta remembering how to play this game... but not really.

I don't know which character to play... I could continue lvling my 70 priest even though I don't know shit about WotLK, I have no money, and I don't have a freakin epic mount... or my 54 druid (I have no idea how to heal with a druid, though)... or just start over.

Also, why aren't I transferring to Draenor right now?

/join DOOMCom imo

By which I mean Tom probably still does.
