Now What?

So I got to level 100 and finished all the Draenor questing storylines in all the zones.  And now I’m at a loss about what to do.

LFG Dungeons?  I used to do dungeons all the time, in fact I considered them to be the real bread and butter of WoW, but the last few times I tried (back at the beginning of MoP) it was next to impossible to wind up in a group with people who weren’t complete jerks.  Now I’m not so sure if I even want to test the water again.

LFG Raiding?  Oh heck naw, that’s gotta be ten times worse than the problem I described for LFG Dungeons.

Finding a guild to raid/dungeon with?  I’ve considered it, but I have a weird work schedule and I’m not sure who out there raids at like, 1 or 2 pm in the afternoon (which would be about the ideal time for me.)

Garrison stuff?  Okay, I can probably do that for a little.  I’ll do that.  You guys come up with a plan for what I can do after that and then submit it to me for my consideration.  All agreed?  Okay?  Okay.

  1. I don’t know if this helps, but here are my personal anecdotes:

    LFD – 90% of the random dungeons I’ve done since I came back for MoP have been no-fuss affairs, people don’t even chat in them (which I consider a plus, but you might not).

    LFR – The first raid (Highmaul) is so easy. I’ve never wiped in that raid at all and I did all the wings for every week until I got all my legendary quest stuff. All the fights are tank n spank and you can’t mess up, which really minimizes any potential drama or whining. The downside is that it’s not challenging and therefore not very fun. But it is free gear and something to do.

  2. If you’re worried about jerks I suggest trying to set stuff up with the group finder. People seem kinder there.

  3. The trick with new expansions is to get in early when only the dedicated players are up to 5-man endgame stuff, and everyone’s undergeared so it’s not a semi-afk spamfest. Back then the Challenge mode daily actually gave out useful gear too.

    I miss challenging ten-man raids. Twenty people is still too many– if I’m just lost in the crowd I barely feel like I’m contributing.

    I haven’t yet found myself desperate enough to do Raid Finder.
