Apologies if this isn't the right place, but none of the other areas seemed correct either, so figured this would be a general sort of thing.
Anyways with the free 90 boost, I want to reroll as horde. However, I'm not sure which server would be the best to roll on? Some of the things I'm looking for:
PvE server (only), no RP
Not virtually "merged" with another server or whatever they call it
Horde bias, large or small it doesn't matter, but preferably horde dominant to a degree
Large active population, but not so large that it incurs queue times. Kinda like Lightbringer I guess for alliance, it has what, 100k-130k alliance I think, but I've never hit queue times to play on it. It doesn't have to be that large, but still, something 80k+ preferred. Friendly population would be a plus, or at least not super degenerate
If anyone has some ideas of servers that would fit these characteristics, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Area 52 is one the highest populated horde centric PvE servers. http://wow.realmpop.com/us.html would probably be helpful as far as raw data goes, but you should roll an alt first and try to get a sense of the general vibe of the community on each prospective server and ask around in regards to queue times.
Bleh knew I forgot to mention something, meant US ones lol. Americas. Also time zone neutral as to whatever it is, I live in AZ so I have to adjust to everyone regardless, and I do night raiding anyways. So along those lines, a server with decent progression would be nice, nothing backwater, but with some competent players, doesn't have to have top x guilds or stuff, but some good ones.
Thrall is a well populated Horde server that doesnt have any quetimes and Hyjal is another good Horde server.
^This. But all my alts are mainly on Illidan.. Both are good servers. Illidan can have some crazy queue times sometimes though, gotta be careful. But Thrall is a decently populated server with excellent folks and all that and I haven't seen any queues!
