Ok, I read a link on Ray M’s facebook yesterday that there’s some pretty major changes coming to the game that have some “dungeon finder” like functionality and even warband matching.
I haven’t touched it since about 3 months after launch but these changes sound significant enough that I’m thinking of jumping back in and trying it. There was a lot to recommend about WHO but the community blew, server populations were completely imbalanced and raiding was extremely difficult/impossible unless you had a major guild behind you.
It’s sounds like a lot of that has been looked at carefully.
Any other lapsed players want to start back up (I have a 38 rune priest can I have back up and running in no time) once the patch hits? Could be a fun filler until Cataclysm.
