With the release of the new patch and Cata dropping in on us soon, I decided to start my account back up and start playing again. Took me a little bit to get back into the swing of things but I should be reaching 80 early this week and I am a little fuzzy on the specifics of where I go next.
Like I said, I am sure there is information on this, but I was wondering if things have changed since the patch. Maybe gearing up isn't as important with the pre-Cata updates they gave the classes.
Should I be pretty much good to go for Heroics straight away at 80 or should I be looking for better stuff to wear before I start trying? If I do need to gear up a bit, what are the major stats I need to be on the lookout for? Is enchanting and gemming dire or can I wait to worry about all this stuff after I get my Tier 9 gear?
If I don't make sense, I am sorry. I will be the first to admit I am a complete noob. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
