Just a few questions
Has the game changed much or is it still sitting in capital cities waiting for dungeon queues and stuff?
I was a big pvp guy, never really liked raiding, what is the status of pvp right now? Balance?
I have a few level 85s from back when I stopped playing, my main (rogue), a mage, a druid, and a paladin. What is the state of these 3 classes in both pve and pvp?
How's the leveling to 90?
I've heard talk that anything that isn't basically a full server is now dead, is that true?
Thanks in advanced for the answers!

nah naw you sit in queues while doing your seemingly endless supply of daily quests until you go insane

PvP is still PvP. Dont expect balance in BGs but arena seems fairly well balanced(for arena, anyway). Not sure about specific classes since I dont do arena much.

leveling to 90 once is awesome. Every time after is a kick in the nuts unless you play a blood DK or something. Servers seem more lively because there is a single continent where most of the 85+ players are instead of being spread across two continents and multiple non-adjacent zones. Low pop realms are probably pretty dead, but my low-medium server feels more lively than it did in Cataclysm(not that it was a hard thing to do).

Are the lower level areas pretty dead then?

No. I forgot to mention Cross-Realm zones, which were added to address low/no players in zones. If a zone has less players than a certain number, it'll merge with another server to "fill" it. The players are named like in other cross-realm features(name-server) and the same limitations apply IIRC(no trading, etc). These zones also only apply to pre-pandaria zones, so pandaria will not be cross-realm.

totally slipped my mind.

No, there were actually too many people in the Belf starting area on Bleeding Hollow, and with CRZ there's usually a decent amount of people in any zone.

How's the leveling now? Was debating on leveling an enhance shaman. Also I left during cata are there any major changes to the Talent trees and stuff? I know I can google this stuff but gamefaqs is so helpful.

Talent trees as you know them are gone, you get to pick 1 out of 3 talents every 15 levels, it's not spec dependant anymore.

I'm assuming the minmaxers have already figured out the ideal build?

Yes, but not using the ideal build will usually not hurt you nearly as much as before.

That sounds a bit nicer, are there still distinctions like subtlety, assassination, and combat for rogues?
