    Better / Best Horde realms EU?

    Seeing my current realms is pretty much braindead, we're looking to transfer to a new realm.
    Been doing some research but I'm not quite getting there.
    Would be nice if people could point us in the right direction

    We're looking for a more pve than pvp realm, really well populated and an as much as possible healthy economy.
    Which are the best realms EU for horde side?

    Many thanks

    Pretty much got the same problem as you. We moved to Kazzak EU last year with my guild. It is the most populated server EU. Ratio Horde 1.00 / Alliance 0.00 Lots of pugs going on PVP/PVE wise. But not sure if transfers to our server are not stopped for the moment.

    Okay I'll say what I always say with these threads.

    Kazzak - a PvP server that has very high average raid progression.
    Draenor - a Normal server that has a high raid progression.
    Stromscale - a PvP realm that has highly rated arena players.

    So it sounds like out of the three you'd be most interested in Draenor. But Kazzak may also work if you don't mind playing on a PvP server where you can be ganked.

    PvE: Draenor

    PvP: Kazzak

    Kazzak, Twisting Nether, Draenor, Al'Akir, Stormreaver, Drak'thul, Sunstrider, Shattered Hand, Frostwhisper, Tarren Mill are all great Horde realms. Out of these only Draenor is a PvE realm though. Although all of these realms, especially Twisting Nether and Kazzak, have very, very small Alliance population, so ganking shouldn't be that much of a problem. From what I experienced Kazzak has the best economy.

    As with every English server there are Scandinavians on them. I can't say though that I've ever felt like they have been taken over at all.
    If you want to see for yourself create an alt on those realms and go to Orgrimmar during peak times. Personally I've found them both fine, as I've played on both those servers (I migrated away from Kazzak to Draenor as I wanted to not be ganked).

    I moved to Draenor more then 2 years ago and i am really glad i did. There are loads of raiding guilds and a decent raid progression, not as great as the top realms, but still good considering they are PvP.

    Are there still issues with queues? Like having to wait 2 hours to login etc?
    On either kazzak or dreanor?

    Only at peak times on patch days like every other High/Full Pop server (Except Outland), even then queue's are about 15 mins on those new content days. On your average day peak time there's no issue.
    As I've mentioned though, try and create a character at peak times and have a look around. You have our mark of approval for quality and quantity of the players.

    I switched to Horde and went to Shattered Hand. There is soooooooo many swedish players. Alot of rant on swedish in chat when I leveled through mop.

    Thought it could be worth mentioning since the server was brought up here.

    Twisting Nether
    Kazzak

    Those are the "best" high populated realms with Horde-majority.

    One tip for future readers and OP;

    Go the the AH, click search and scroll down. Then you will see the number off all auctions inn total on the AH. A decent way to see population. I know my realm witch is high-pop (alliance) has around 40k items up on the AH, while last time I checked on Kazzak it had around 80k items.

    Besides that you can check worldofprogress, but I find my own method for checking population pretty OK; http://www.wowprogress.com/pve/eu/draenor
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?
