might come in handy. I play on EU so I can't offer you any suggestions based on experience, though.

I play on EU - Realms, mostly RP realms.. so not sure how things work for US - Realms.
Most decent guilds, or players will use "Realm forums of some kind"
to recruit for new players. Perhaps some might even read your post you have just written... But you have to put in the hardwork & check realms out for yourself. Is the best option.
Top 20 heroic guilds, thats another story. Same goes for Top ranking arena teams. They tend to keep things more private. RBG teams, always looking for new blood. Same for any type of team, guilds etc, most tend to use:
( well this works for EU - Realms )
So lets say you find a realm that offers what you would like from the game, perhaps check the realm forums, make a application / advertise yourself. See what kinda feedback you get. Same for other websites. If people take a interest then, what steps should you take?, well i wouldn't want jump-ship straight away...
Perhaps get a feel for the guild or players you will be teaming up with. Best way to do this is perhaps create a Death Knight
, since you will be able to do loads more things in-game. "Instant level 60 just about." ( reason i picked a DK )
. ....perhaps give it a week, see how it feels.. Try to make some connections with some of the players you would like to team up with, whatever that might be. Limit the risk... is the key.
You can also use battle.net / add some friends
., connect with players that you have talked with, do some pvp etc.. see how they play. Lots of "Cross Realm RBG" goes on.
