Post PVE Server Alternative
WOW Ascension

They also support character copy from retail or other 'blizzlike' realms.

It's been a good experience so far. Pop is pretty low, but that means no competition for quest items or gathering nodes. PLUS no looking over my shoulder for silly gankers.

Post Re: PVE Server Alternative
While I definitely would prefer a PvE server, there are just too many issues that come with a low pop server. Prices are higher, hard to find good guilds, much less good raiding ones that fit your preferences. I honestly do not have problems with quest item competition. People always party up and we kill things together. It's not overcrowded any more like when I first started playing. I believe 2k people left the server already. Anyways, not saying you need to come back, but I don't think I will move over. Thanks though. I'll let you know if I change my mind once I hit the contested areas. ;)

Understood. I'll probably still play a bit on Nost also. Crowds are definitely interesting at times, plus there is no shortage of pugging. You're entirely correct in that there is very little AH on Ascension. The low pop thing is interesting though, in that they've enabled cross faction communication and grouping. Weird but neat.

One other note, I've found it's not quite as simple as just changing your realmlist.wtf to connect to either of them. Once you've connected to one or the other, it's more or less impossible to connect to the other. I'm going to run two installations I think, just to get around that problem.

Well Ascension was shut down with a cease and desist from Blizz.

A brand new one spun up in May, Primal WoW. PVE with 3.3.5 client with vanilla content. Very interesting.
