Returning player. Lvl 70 Rogue. Trying to figure out a lot of stuff. But so much is new!
What does it mean to altune an item to your character?
What are hotzones?
What are glyphs?
What are auras?
What are tasks and how are they different than quests?
My gear is 7 years old, and relatively worthless now. What is the best way to regear?
Where should I be looking for exp at lvl 70?
Attunable items and gear are tradeable (and often sold in the bazaar) but become no trade once equipped.
Hotzones are zones with increased xp rates .They are changed from time to time usually every year or so..
Glyphs are one time buffs that cost AA's (listed under "special" tab in AA window-in game). These are rarely used unless raiding certain content or if your character is at or near max aas.
Auras are effects (like buffs or bard songs) that melee classes like Warriors or Berserkers and some castors get. They usually effect players in group once within a certain radius of the character creating the aura..
If by tasks you mean solo tasks vs group missions..Solotasks can be requested by a single player but sometimes still require a group to realistically hope to complete. Most mission/group type quests require 3 players in group to get from the questgiver.
At 70 buy the "Defiant gear" for your level (Elegant defiant) and level till 80 where plenty major improvements in gear open up...Notably "Abstruse" lvl 80-85 gear (should be cheap in bazaar nowadays).
AT lvl 70, there are many choices but if you want a pick up group, stick to the hotzones and send /ooc lfg ..Sunderrock is still good xp at 70 so is Vergalid Mines.Dragonscale Hills is another popular spot but there are many more options available at that level.
Good luck and enjoy. Edited, Jan 6th 2013 5:06pm by hexeez
