Looking for an active EU Horde realm
Return to board index
I'm relatively new to WoW and am looking for suggestions as to what would be a good Horde realm for leveling and casual progression PVE.
I'm not looking for anything insanely structured but a place that has a social community and a fun atmosphere we raiding gets done without the usual hullabaloo.
After looking at the WoWProgress numbers, it's a bit difficult to identify what normal realm would suit such a purpose since the highest population realms are mainly PVP, and I'm not a big fan of having morons jump me whilst I'm leveling and not actively looking for some action.
Help, advice and maybe people who can share some experiences would be much appreciated.
well if you want an active EU Horde dominated PvE server, i can suggest trying Draenor.
it's one of the most active, lot's of pugs going on for flex and normal SoO and still runs for ToT.
shouldnt be hard too find a leveling guild, and there tons of lower progression guilds looking for raiders atm.
Yeah, I'm thinking of Draenor. The only concern I had was queue times? I'm GMT+5:30 so I won't be on at quote unquote peak times anyway. What's your experience?
well speaking in server times, the peak is from around 18.30 till about 22:00-22:30, where you will encounter queue times. at the beginning and end it might only be 100 people tops but around 19:30-21:30 the queue time might consist out of up too a 1000+
I second the suggestion of Draenor, but I will join and warn you about the queues. On Sundays the queues last throughout a whole evening (server time), on weekdays it's a bit better, rarely any queue until 19 or so. However, if one of our raiders disconnects mid raid (so around 20-22 server time) they often don't get back on for two hours or more. It's all about when you'll be playing.
Yeah, I ran an expirement yesterday with that in mind. I created a character at around 18:30 server time and logged in immediately. Tried coming back a couple of hours later and got smacked with a thirty minute queue time. Pretty bonkers. Typically I'd happily choose a PVP server and just go with a server that has half the population.
However, my concern is that I'm really not one for wPvP anymore. I don't mind it, but I'd rather just get on with my own business on Timeless Isle or when leveling rather than be bothered by people looking for some action. Are there any slightly lower populated Horde PVP servers that don't feature an excessive amount of individuals looking to gank people thirty levels below them?
What's Magtheridon like? According to Realm Pop it's well populated without an excessive imbalance. However, according to Realm Progress it's a quiet server in terms of population and progression.
Magtheridon is pretty dead in comparison to Draenor, from what I've heard. I'd really recommend Draenor if you are not going to play much at peak hours, but otherwise, Ragnaros seems like a rather lively server. Twisting Nether and Kazzak are high pop as well, but I'm not sure about the queue times over there.
They're all PVP right? I don't really mind them either but I'm not really up for wPvP whilst leveling. Don't mind it at 90.
Yes, all are PvP, Draenor is PvE.
Yup. Well, I've decided to go with Defias Brotherhood because I have a friend with two characters on that realm. Looking at realmpop it's got a decent population on both sides and should hopefully have some decent guilds I can look into. Thanks for your help so far. Anyone had any experiences with Defias Brotherhood?
