    Hi Friend,

    What you want to do is look into some VPN solutions. This is most likely the way to get the best ping possible.

    I live and work in Asia and play on the US servers. Without a VPN I get about 300-400ms. With a VPN I can bring it down to 170ish which isn't awesome but it is okay.

    Japan to US servers you would probably get 100ms without a VPN to Europe though...not sure but good luck.

    It depends on the location. I've used to live there back when I was an intern, and I had Sony Nuro 2GBS internet which it was pretty darn good. Prices are not bad either, like $40-$50 monthly. My ping was around 100-200.

    well that sounds exackly like this - instead asking whats interesting to see where he should go he clearly plans to no life all evenings in wow - kinda sad but not unexpected from wow players

    And I agree with OP, he need to take a part of his "old life" with him, to keep him sane. And I'm serious.
    Please re-read and take the entire sentence in the same context. Ironically you yourself have assumed the part you quoted was not sarcasm. And yes, Whilst I haven't been to Japan hence my desire to, I *am* speaking from experience.

    I am unfortunately not young enough. On the plus side I have complete control over where I go, the downside is the need to finance it

    So Hardcore elitest raiders trying to get LFR removed are in fact essentially trying to kill off their own content!

    I had no problems playing US servers from Japan (outside my internet heronet being crummy). Roughly 200 ping which good enough to enjoy some gaming. A VPN is still a must when trying to bank or access stuff from home though...

    I started playing while living in New Zealand on Draka, LA data center with about 200 to 250ms. Moved home to Ireland, still on Draka and I have about 140 to 170ms. Played on Thrall for a while with 100ms since it's east coast.

    I guess for pvp is might be crap, I don't pvp so meh.

    I do not like playing on EU servers since I get 15 to 30ms. I keep clipping my spells since I'm so used to the "lag".

    Yea I tried during Legion Pre-patch. Was around 100 to 120 ms If i remember right, so very playable. Never tried on an Oceanic server, but most people say it's around 70ish.
