Reading your comment about having to relearn roles reminded me of a WoW Insider post where someone was chiding others for not knowing how to play, claiming a 5 second search on Google would tell you everything you needed to know.Curious, I did exactly that.I had to go through a couple Google pages to find a DPS guide that was relevant to the current *expansion*, nevermind patch. Bear in mind that I'm an educated-enough player to know that all those preceding links wouldn't help me. How could a new player know that?

I should clarify: it was not the WoW Insider post itself that was chiding other players, but one of it's down-voted commenters.

You're right on here. I just started around a year ago, my first two toons being my rogue who is my main and a hunter that I abandoned around level 45. It was several months before I realized why some of the information was so confusing that I was finding online. Things like having to teach hunter pets new abilities and how I had to learn them to teach them... And that certain pet families did more dps or whatever than other pet families in the same type (Ferocity, tenacity, cunning) I wish there was a way to get all the "old" content about wow off the internet, but I know that's impossible... Its just confusing! lol
