Even when that change involves a PvP realm? After the issues my raid team has had over the past few weeks finding raiders on our seriously low horde pop realm, the raid leader was asking the raiders how we would feel about finding a realm with a greater horde presence. While Aman’thul itself has quite a healthy population the amount of horde raiders is seriously low. After a bit of bit of discussion, 2 raiders have yet to be asked so it’s not set in stone, the majority want to try Barthilas, an Oceanic realm.
You can see the difference in the horde/alliance ratio and population in the data from wowprogress;
While a slightly larger horde server would be nice; atm finding people to form into groups to kill world bosses like Nalakk and Oondasta happens very infrequently and when they do you have a fairly large chance that a bigger alliance group will be there and either pull first or interfere in some way :p. The issue is Barthilas is a PvP realm and I have no idea of how I feel about that. I like my raid team but I’m going to have to love my raid team to handle being ganked while out and about in the world.
I don’t really know anything about the mechanics of living, questing and exploring on a PvP realm. Do I have to wear PvP gear all the time? One of my raiding members was trying to convince me that because of the horde/ally ratio I probably wouldn’t see much world pvp but you know in my mind, it doesn’t matter how many more horde there are if it’s just me out on my own, then its one on one and I’m probably going to be dead faster than you can say prowl.
And the idea of going to a new realm without my stable of alts preparing supplies for the druid’s professions is disconcerting to say the least. But I’m certainly not going to move a number of toons to a realm I’m unsure about. Lol do I play these toons for fun or simply as a support staff for the druid? Demanding druid! I’ll load up the druid with a month’s worth of flasks/potions, gems, enchants and give it a try I guess. I should know in a month if I want to invest in bringing all my favourite slaves toons over.
So does anyone have any tips for living on a PvP realm? It looks like my raid team is going so I guess I’m going as well as I don’t really want to give up my team without at least trying it. I just hope it won’t really suck.
