If geeks love it, we’re on it
The links Tushon posted in the previous thread should cover you're class combat specific stuff. Here they are again for ya.
IcyVeins and Noxxic
I recommend Wowhead if you need help finding places, items, or NPCs.
If you want to practice a role in-game, I suggest you head to the Proving Grounds. Proving grounds are an instanced solo scenario in which you can practice tanking, DPS, and Healing in realistic situation but without fear of tripping any jerk players nerves. A pandaren in the Temple of the White Tiger will set that up for you. before that though, you should spawn at a place called the Shrine of Seven Stars. This is the Alliance capitol in Pandaria. In the main antechamber of the Shrine should be a pandaren with a quest that directs you exactly where the Proving Grounds are and who to talk to.
Once you feel comfortable with how to punch and kick, you're next goals are to
1) Get Gear
2) Get Valor
There are many ways to get both. Don't feel like you NEED to do everything all at once or you'll burn yourself out. You have a week to do both, before raid lockouts and timers reset.
·Get started on your legendary cape.
Right over the mountains to the east of the Shrine you'll find a small zone called the Veiled Stair. There are 3 main points of interest here. A raid entrance, the Black Market Auction House, and the Inn. inside the Inn you'll find Wrathion. Talk to him to get started on your legendary questline. It will take you anyway between a month or 2 months depending on how lucky you are to get this whole thing done. With the boosts that Blizz has been throwing out it should take you about a month. It's a nice, relatively longterm, goal for you to work on, that is very rewarding.
·Warforged Seals and other Bonus Roll Tokens
There is a weekly quest at the Shrine that will grant you 3 Warforged Seals upon turn in. All you need to do is grab 50 Lesser Marks of Good Fortune. These have a relatively high chance to drop off of lvl 90 mobs, almost guaranteed to drop from rarespawns, and many other ways to be acquired. These Warforged Seals are important as they allow you another chance at loot from Siege of Orgrimmar, and Timeless Isle raids. When you have at least one of these seals on hand and defeat one of these raid bosses, no matter the difficulty, you'll get a popup in the bottom center of your screen that asks you if you want to spend a seal for another roll. Should you choose to roll, the icon will spin slot machine style and land on either gold coins or will appear blank. If it lands on coins you get a loot bag with a fair sum of gold in it and possibly gear or other valuable items. Should it land on a "blank" you get random piece of gear from the boss' loot table appropriate to you current loot specialzation. By default this is set to your currently active spec. You can adjust this at will, even when the bonus roll popup is up. You can only get 3 seals per week and can only use them on the Celestials, Ordos, or the Siege of Ogrimmar. I recommend you start off by using 1 seal on the Celestials until you've gotten the tier gloves and pants from them. For the previous raid tiers in Mists of Pandaria, there are other sets of bonus roll tokens like the Warforged Seals they can be acquired by other means but you don't need to worry about them as much since you'll quickly move past that gear.
This island off the coast of the Jade Forest is filled to the brim with many lvl 90 plus mobs, with the majority being Elite. There are also a ton of Rarespawns on the isle. All the mobs here hit hard and get stronger the higher up the island you venture. They all have varying chances to drop a timeless armor token. Should then token be an armor class you can use, you can activate the token to change it into a wearable piece of armor at ilvl 496 (I don't remember the exact number off hand). ilvl 496 puts you at about LFR level Siege of Orgrimmar. Then there is an item called the Burden of Eternity that when used with an armor token, will make the new piece of armor "Timeless" ilevel gear which is 535. Which puts you past LFR SoO and well into Flex SoO. Recommend you go with a partner your first few times here so that teh mobs don't kill you as often and to help protect against "coiners" who are players who have joined a "third" faction on the island and hunt down other players on the isle.
Celestials: in the western center of the Isle is the Celestial Court in which 4 great spirits of Pandaria can be challenged by a raid group of at least 10 players. These world bosses are "free tag" which means that you don't have to be in the same raid group or faction as the initial attacker, to be counted for loot at the end of the fight. This also applies to the rarespawns on the Isle.
Ordos: this is another world boss at the top of the Timeless Isle. He can only be challenged by players that have completed the Legendary Cloak on at least one of their characters. Don't bother attempting to fight him until you do have the cloak, otherwise you'll just be ported away.
(No "proper" formating for these since it caused a yellow scroll box to appear around them.)
·Looking For Raid (LFR)
In Cataclysm Blizz added a tool that pairs up 25 people to fight through simplified version of the current raids. The fights have less health pools and damage, and usually lack 1 or two key and powerful abilities for the boss. Accordingly, the loot you get from these raids is not as good as the actual raid. They have their own lockouts and can also give legendary questline loot. The raids are broken up into wings and you'll face either 3 or 4 bosses ina row and should the raid wipe, the entire raid will get 1 stack of a buff that increases the raids health, dmg, and healing by 5% per stack per wipe. For a boosted 90 you can start at the Throne of Thunder LFR and work your way up and work you way up.
Scenarios are 3 man instances that can be completed by any kind of group, whether it be full of healers or full of DPS. Heroic Scenarios are tougher versions of a few regular scenarios and upon completion grant a fair amount of Valor and a chest that may contain a high ilvl purple item appropriate to your loot specialization at the time of opening.
Daily quests will give you small amounts of Valor. Scenarios and heroic SCenarios will give you Valor, heroic dungeons will give you Valor upon completion. Kill a raid boss and completing an LFR wing will give you Valor. 3000 timeless coins can be turned in for Valor on the Timeless Isle. You can only get 1000 Valor per week and hold onto a max of 3000. You don't HAVE to worry about Valor as much as at first as it's main use now is to upgrade your gear. I'd recommend you earn it then hold onto it until you get some notable gear. Namely "Timeless" gear, SoO LFR gear or higher.
This is a pretty straightforward way to start gearing up for raiding. There is much more to do in WoW as I'm sure you know. This should help you get you started. Do jump into Icrontic's mumble and chat with whoever else is on. You'll learn quicker and have a bit more fun at it.
My new baby. :nyah: .

"There's a face pube in my Runwell!"
They'd just market it as a bonus.
