We don't really do alt raids or anything, and there isn't much benefit for me to actually gear one this expac.
Been playing Prot/Ret since the start, and have no inclination to change. I played Arms consistently through t11 and t13 as well, but I just haven't had the time to dedicate any time to an alt.
A two hour queue time for LFR? You need a new server; my queue times are always less than an hour, usually 20~45 minutes.
Seems odd, Sev is on the same server as me, and i've never had any issues with que times. If you complete an in progress run, I'm pretty sure you are almost guaranteed to get a fresh run afterwards.
Only time that seems to be a problem is first week of a section's release.
