Hi guys,

 

I just re-fired up my account, thought I was done for good, but nah... i can't quit this game!

 

Here is a link to my armory:  http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/gilneas/Svenolaf/simple

 

The new xpac is really different than I'm used to.  I need help with glyphs, a decent leveling build, and some general info on gear I should be working on.  Oh, yeah, whats up with the new stats?!?  no hit?!?  damn... I'm thinking about re-rolling just so I can re-learn all the changes.

 

I feel like there have been some massive changes to the game since I last played and most google searches I find send back rather vague and overly broad info about the 6.0 pre patch.

 

Also, are any ret's out there using CLCret anymore?  if so, where can i find a decent lvl 90 string to use as I level?

 

Please help.  Anything is good.  I was a pretty decent player back in the day, so I should be able to figure most stuff out fairly quickly.

 

TIA, and I appreciate the time spent reading this.

I didnt play pandaria a lot, but here some difference with drenor:

No hit, mastery need if you attack bofss from behind. If you attack not from behind - boss will parry/block and dodge.

No reforge.

New gear system - boss in heroic dungeon(5 ppl) can drop 630 item, but you have a chance get reforged item 636 lvl. Also you have a chance to get equip with socket(even trinket). For Highmaul raid normal 655 itmlvl it coud be 661 reforged. So item coud be reforged or with soket or both. Also item coud be with "lifeleach/move speed/etc" - usless stats.

 

You want items with mastery, its your best stat. After mastery you probably want haste/crit/multi. Versality not good stat, at least with low gear lvl(<680 for shure). But first of all - strenght is best for you. So first of all bust your itmlvl(couse it will give you more str).

http://www.wowdb.com/talent-calculator#ZZzPb0NaOGr1L- this is your build for lvling.

Legendary quest for 640-680-690-710(or 700 do not remember) ring. First quest you will get in your garrison at 98lvl, so u probably wont miss it(orange sign at "void" mob). After you get it you shoud go to one normal dungeon and you will get 640 ring. After this you will need end 3 heroic dungeons, so you will get 680 ring. For 690 ring you shoud go to HighMaul raid, kill 2 last boses and collect ~100 items wich drops from all boses in HM. And last ring - quest for BlackROckFoundry raid.

 

So for now - get 640 at 98, and 680 at 100.

 

Heirloom only for 85lvl, at 25 feb will be patch 6.1 there will be new heirloom system, so you coud graid it to 100 lvl, but it will cost gold.

 

Also you can read this about gearing - http://www.wowhead.com/guides/gear/wod/gearing-up-in-warlords-of-draenor

 

I reccomend you questing in nagrand(when your garrison send you there), couse there is highest itmlvl rewards for quests, so it will be easier for you to hit 610 itmlvl, which you need for heroic dungeons, and 615 for LfR highmaul.

Also you coud try challange-dungeons, it will award you(daily quest) with 640 gear.

Or you coud buy some gear from AH, it cost not rly much now.

Also there is 3 worldboses, but 2 of them with same CD. so you coud kill 2 boses and get 640 and 665(or 55 do not remember) gear also.

For leveling i never go to nagrand, i think it's faster to stay in spires. i go 90-92 frostfire ridge/shadowmoon valley, 94-96 gorgrond (This can be done in under 40 minutes if you just do objective quests), and then 94-96 or 97 in talador, and finally 97-100 in spires. It takes under 10 hours (8 normally)

And for gear and specc, look at the guides on this site, they are really helpfull.

And depending on your amount of gold and your server price, it can be helpfull to buy a couple 640 ilvl pieces to level with, (weapon and trinket helps the most)

It's okay not go to nagrand, if you will buy some equip, but if you dont - it's will take time to get itmlvl. When i start play(first days of draenor) i dont have enough money for 640 items(it was like 20k for one item), and i have to quest in nagrand and farm dungeons, it was rly annoing. Maby in spires you coud hit 610-615 lvl for heroic and lfr, but as i remember, i didnt.

      Our Raids:

      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)

      So I just got my Rogue to 110 on Monday and plan on raiding soon. But  I am a bit unhappy about Vigor not being an option. Every guide I found put the other two talents above it. I really like playing with Vigor, this might just be because my gear is still kinda bad and messed up(850ish), but it feels a lot smoother with Vigor.
      So I wanted to know why excactly the other two are better and by how much.
