Last night I knocked out a scenerio and downed Sha in a guild group. Sha was fun but easy (nice epic boots, thanks Sha!) but the scenerio I did was easy as fuck. I've heard a tank or healer makes those easier but damn, I could've soloed that shit. At one time I had a dozen mobs on me and I never dropped below 3/4 health. I wish scenerios were harder.

I recently did the Theramore scenario. It was me, a hunter and a death knight. One of those two dudes died during the second pull and they both left. I soloed the rest. Fun times.

How... How is that even possible? Granted, this is coming from my viewpoint as a Bear and not a dps class, but I'm not even close to being well geared at this time (ilvl 431) so that can't be the difference. I have an insane amount of cooldowns and tricks up my sleeve to keep me alive when the shit hits the fan but I never had to use a single one so that can't be it either.

Maybe I'll try one Cat specced and see if that makes any difference at all?

I have a tank pet that never loses agro, that I can heal while dishing out the damage. I can also heal myself. I'd like to think that the warlock is the best soloing class in the game, at least with me at the keys.

Pet battles are way too addictive. I've had to force myself to stop. But those little green paws.. they're everywhere.. enticing me.. taunting me..

I will consider myself "finished" with pet battles when I have 3 of every type of pet at max level. FYI, I am nowhere close to this goal.

Yeah, it is pretty fun!

Once I get my warlock to 90 (2 more levels!) I'll probably start doing more pet battles. It's either that or grind faction which I've never been a fan of. I'm too burned out on the quests to level up another toon right now, and the warlock fits anyway. Let's me be lazy. 'Yo pet, go kill.'

The one thing I am debating on however is a tank, probably a prot warrior.. and then I'm also considering inscription or alchemy. Leaning towards alchemy as it seems the most personally beneficial over time.

As a recently reactivated player, I'll make a list of the things MoP added:

1. A functional and robust LFG system for dungeons, with a gear check barrier to Heroics/Raids that keeps out the asslings who've put absolutely zero effort beyond getting to 90.

2. Flex raids, for people that can't schedule their life around a guild raiding schedule, but desire more challenging content then the LFR provides. Heroic raids for people who are so hardcore that LFR, Flex, and normal raiding weren't enough.

3. A huge variety of quest hubs, and they're not all just a dozen crappy dailies.

4. As MoP has gotten longer in the tooth, they've made gearing up for raiding super easy with the addition of the Timeless Isle. If you go there as a fresh 90, you will leave with several pieces of gear with appropriate stats for your class/spec of sufficient ilevel to at least get you eligible for LFG Heroics, and probably the initial LFR too.

5. Transmogrification. Are you still pissed that your pally doesn't look as cool as he did decked out in T2? Well, now you can make current gear look like pretty much whatever you want.

Best expansion yet. They showed a lot of promise for pushing out content during the first 6-8 months, but it's petered out to nothing just like always. I'm really looking forward to the new expansion.

I switched my druid from feral to Moonkin and I kind of regret it. Melee have such a crazy advantage over casting the majority of the time in terms of raw DPS that it is pretty frustrating. Also, it's much easier to gear a fresh 90 character than it is to swap specs at some point while level 90.

My Shaman is Resto and my Priest is Holy. Healing is really fun in this game and I'm considering switching my Moonkin to Resto as well.

I'm getting the Diablo 3 Reaper expansion SE so I'll have a new pet for WoW, icons for StarCraft, and cards for Hearthstone!

I would rank them:

1-Mists of Pandaria
2-Wrath of the Lich King
3-Burning Crusade
4-Cataclysm

I really enjoyed every expansion for different reasons. The overall lore/story for each one was worth experiencing.

I know next to nothing about the upcoming expansion, but I still look forward to it. The first 2-3 months after an expansion is released is probably my favorite part of playing WoW. That first week post expansion is always the greatest time to play. Old faces pop up, online guildies go through the roof, and everyone is working together to level and discover all over again for the first time in new content. Also, by the time a new expansion is released, everyone is content starved. It's like throwing a steak into a pack of starving dogs.

I thought Burning Crusade was an awful expansion. I enjoyed Cataclysm the most. Pandaria second, Lich King third.
