Which Addons do you use? There's so many of them - I don't know which I should choose.

Depends on what you want, do you want a minimalistic UI, there's a lot of question you should ask yourself when designing a interface.
Or if it's just meters and boss mods, then the most downloaded are usually the better choices due to them usually being well supported. I myself prefer Skada and BigWigs for Meters and BossMod respectively.

I'm a big fan of customizing my interface, to be honest the latest years I have been doing that more than raiding.
My latest creation got to look somewhat similar to this, with adjusted sizes and positioning that were tuned over time: Early WIP in LFR (AFKish) , Early WIP , 10-man non-aligned

I use a tonne but the main ones:

SCT (Scrolling combat Text)
Bagnon (1 bag to rule them all)
Dominos (Cast Bars)
XPerl (Unit Frames)
FuBAR w/ clock fu, repair fu, money fu, location fu
Healbot
Deadly Boss Mods
Dragqueen
Gatherer

This is an old pic, but it shows my typical interface.

I noticed that too. And it wobbles a lot, which I get but I keep feeling like I have to move the camera to stay on course with it (like when drunk).

I just use a very slightly modified ElvUI. It's constantly being updated and is very easy to customize. I used to do the completely custom UI thing but I just got tired of the hassle.

There are still quartermasters in Orgrimmar (and I guess Stormwind) that you can buy crafting materials with or swap them for honor points.

You won't get gear worth equipping from daily quests unless you count items you can purchase with valor points.

Your best bet is to either hang out in battlegrounds over the weekend and buy honor gear, hit the auction house for crafted items, or queue for dungeons and scenarios. You can fill in holes in your gear with the auction house (buy the crafted blue-quality PVP gear, it should be dirt cheap now). You can keep gear that isn't appropriate for your spec: so long as you can equip it then it'll count towards your item level. You don't even need to wear it while you queue up or run the dungeon: just have it in your bags.


I just started to play again to see the xpac new content and I found as a solo dps the faster way to gear for raid finder is Scenario + world bosses (unless you want to pay at the ah of course).

Queue for dongeon as a dps are far too long (between 30 and 40 minutes). Honor is really slow to get if you lose as much as you win wich will likely happen if you don't premade.

Scenario gives 450 and 463 gears. It also gives some justice. The cool thing about Scenario is the queues are instant even for dps. You can solo most of them so if people quit you can continue until the finder finds other people. I geared my huntard for raid finder in around 1 week of work doing only scenario, world bosses and making my eng google (worked on the mats while levelling). I must admit i was lucky i got 1 piece from my first oon kill and 1 from my first galleon kill along with of course the boots from the quest started by looting Sha claw.

Really bad xpac so far imo. The new raid is sort of fun but everything else is still really bad. Nobody does challenge. Few normal and heroic good pug groups. People are happy doing dailies, raid finder and playing Farmville and Pokemon... the game is going downhill fast. I gave up finding a good pug for normal and eventually heroics like it used to be possible back in wrath days.

I hate the rep requirements to buy anything with VP & JP - I don't really raid and do the LFR frequently, and now have some points to use and because I don't do anything with PVE rep I can't actually buy anything.. Looks like they will sit there until they reset it all again then

Thanks, i had a quick look in Stormwind and couldn't find anything of interest and i'm not too bothered about PvP at this point. I managed to pick up a ring from the Golden Lotus faction but still have most of my points and nothing to do with them.

My VP are building up as well but the rep grind to revered for anything exciting is killing me and will need to go all the way to exalted if i want mounts.

I would like to see bonus dungeon rep available once per day across each faction, instead of once per day for one faction.

The rep grind was (and still is) a major complaint of MoP. At least for the reps in 5.1/5.2, they throw reputation at you now. Can get exalted in like 2-3 weeks of doing dailies.

Blizzard created a to do list on gearing up quickly to be ready for Throne of Thunder too. May be worth checking out...http://us.battle.net..._to_53-5_2_2013

Been playing a lot of wow. I did a heroic Scenerio on Tuesday, and it was definitely tough. I am really really hoping they don't nerf it at all. It's nice to have a challenge once and a while.

Hit 499 iLevel last night. I do LFRs all the time, but I find that 9/10 times I will get a bag of gold. Not even something with the gold.. just gold. Rep Grind was boring at first, but now I am kind of enjoying it.

I still wish they would make the game more difficult again. However it seems like they are constantly nerfing/removing difficulty in things. For example in the last LFR Raid there are mobs that spawn an electric shield. It used to be that you HAD to stop DPS or you would wipe the raid, but now you can dps and heal through it no problem.

I miss the TBC days where people were set apart. Those who raided and were raiders had the awesome gear, worked hard for their gear, and had a real sense of achievement. Now you can do an easy heroic, have sub 30k dps in LFR, and do some dailies and become geared.

Scenarios suck, most boring part of the game for me, but i'm not vanilla so the difficulty of them are probably what kills it for me something i'm not used to.. I was looking forward to the Lorewalker Cho new questline from yesterdays patch only to be hit with Scenarios :(

Warriors are supposed to be the characters that deliver the high amounts of damage but i seem to be getting shadowed by other characters of similar lvl, leads me to think i'm just playing my character wrong.

i enjoy doing the dailies for rep grind as well. I've only got 2 more factions to raise to exalted.. or near enough.

I probably need to start hitting LFR but doesn't each raid take something like 3-4 hours?
