Been Away Since Cataclysm, Got The Itch To Come Back
Return to board index
Armory Link -
I played WoW since TBC up until Cataclysm. After a couple months of playing Cataclysm, I decided to give up WoW & play Guild Wars 2, as many others did. I've now leveled to max level twice in GW2, hoping to find something else to do once I get to endgame, but apart from doing map completion or grinding for a legendary weapon, there doesn't seem to be much else worth doing, so for ME that game is now essentially over.
Therefore, I've got the itch to come back to WoW. The problem is, people must be WAY ahead of me by now. If you check my armory, you can see exactly where my progression ended once I left WoW several months ago, so I feel I've got a lot of catching up to do.
In general, how long do you feel it may take an average gamer who plays maybe 3-4 hours or so a night to get up to scratch gear/progression wise? I just don't want to be lagging behind for ages & not being able to participate in raids etc, because of the fact I've been away for so long now.
Overall, you can hit 90 in a few days, and grind heroics for gear. Wont take too long to get up to snuff. If you are looking to be fully epic geared pre-raid, that is a different story. I personally think MoP is the best expansion content wise so far for WoW. Story, design, and overall fun. The only thing I have a problem with myself being a casual raider is all the valor gear is locked behind faction rep.
Now you can very easily raid in non epics, if you know your class well.
If you want to go for full epics it breaks down to 21 days of doing dailys for Golden Lotus, then revered with that faction unlocks 2 other gear factions that you have to get to revered for gear from them. about 21 days for the Klaxxi faction as well.
I dont say this to discourage you at all, but if you dont pay attention to the story and just click through daily quest text, it will be a grind to get epics in this way. If you can read and enjoy the quests, blizz did a great job of the story behind the quest hubs.
Basically a few days to level.
A few days to be geared for Raid Finder.
After that it's RNG to be in epics.
In all honesty you can skip the rep grinds if you wish and just gear in raid finder. (although its worth doing for the charms of good fortune and thus bonus loot rolls)
Since Wrath you have never really been that far behind as far as catching up and gearing goes.
