That was very much me, Iowynn! The server I was on had transfers to Garrosh as well (and thanks for keeping an eye out).
This was a very interesting read about your father. I actually had several players start WoW completely fresh from Age of Conan, and some of our best players had a lot of funny learning experiences going through (Warlock pushing 4-5k DPS didn't start seeding until last week on trash). Let me know the progress of that situation as it continues!
Enjoy your Christmas and Holidays, Iowynn.
