Possible Server Xfer / Starting new guild

Garona
My wife and I are looking to transfer to a new server that is a little bit less populated than our current server Stormrage. There is way too much hustle and bustle there for our liking, and the huge overpopulation at night makes the server lag like crazy. Anyway, Garona is one of about 4 servers that we are considering making the jump to, but before we commit ourselves I wanted to post a thread and hopefully get a general feel for what the server is like and promote what our plans are in hopes of possibly having some players lined up before we make the switch.

Once we switch, my wife and I are looking to get our own guild started. We are looking for players that would be in for the long haul. This will not be a mass recruiting/leveling guild (although low level characters are more than welcome to join), nor will it be a hardcore raiding guild or a PvP guild. Our vision is to create a home for a close, tight-knit group of players that enjoy getting on and running all types of content together. Our ultimate goal is to become what many would deem a "casual raiding guild".

If you're looking for immediate DS progression, this isn't the place. We don't want to dive right into the most recent content or rush to put together a "sick hardcore raid team". We are looking to start off running guild heroics, building chemistry and getting to know one another, progressing into early Cata raids like BH, BWD, BoT, and eventually hitting FL and DS. We would hold a schedule of about 3-4 nights/week for about 2-3 hours/night.

My wife and I don't claim to have the most "experience" in terms of raiding "achievements", but we have both spent extensive amounts of time researching our classes/specs and are willing to put in time and effort to understand basic game mechanics and strategies. We aren't looking for players that can say they're "5/8H DS", we just ask that you know how to play your character to its full potential, just as we've done.

This guild will be DRAMA-FREE. We don't like it, we don't want it. Age is not a factor as I've seen 13 year olds that can out-mature 20-somethings, but we will not tolerate bull**it (for lack of a better term that comes to mind). We're here to run content as a group and enjoy the game. Period. Egos and elitists need not apply.

As stated above, we're looking for players that are in this for the long haul. Players that when even if WoW were eventually to die (which I don't see happening soon, obviously, but hypothetically..), we could take the guild to another game with the same people. Players that are here to play because it's fun playing with the same group, not because they want that World-First kill.

All that being said, let's get to the server.. I've read a few threads about the server but any additional info would be appreciated such as server population, AH economy, PUGs, etc. Would this guild be viable here? And anyone looking to potentially come along for the ride, feel free to post here with a way I can contact you and we will talk further.

I apologize if I rambled and made this too long to read. I wrote it not feeling well @ 6 AM on a Sunday morning. ;)
This server all in all is great, but the Trade Chat can get a bit weird sometimes, just yesterday (March 31st) they were talking about circumcision. Dont get me wrong its not always that bad but still. I dont think that you would have any problem recruiting, or getting PuGs together
However with Xmog's coming out AH prices for low level stuff has skyrocketed leaving us to deal with a lot of prices for low level items, all in all its good people are fair most of the time with prices. If you'd like you can contact me in game sometime on Ubadai, Ophanim, or this guy (Alestre)
Hope this helps!

^ Pretty good idea of what trade chat is like.
Oh, and stay away from Debriatus' white van, he does NOT have candy in it!
Just a hint...roll toons on each of the servers, get 'em to the capitol city of your choice and then observe. Also, FYI, Garona is very Alliance-heavy. I won't comment on trade chat; it speaks for itself, unfortunately, on any server I've ever been on. Good luck!

Glad someone saw it, was getting nervous.

It immediately tripped my OCD sensor.
...I did not see that at all.
why did you steal my hunters name for.. Alestre. Seems so weird talking to someone with my own name.
I will say it's a good server the majority of the time (with the exception of trade chat), but starting a new guild will be hard since there are not many unguilded people on the server and it's rare to have people jump guilds unless they are mad about something.

If you have trouble getting a new guild started (good luck though and wish you the best) and you're looking for a guild of close friends that is married couple friendly feel free to whisper me in game. Our guild has at least 3 married couples and then other real life friends. If you just want to know someone on server to log on and talk to you can feel free to add me as well.

Good luck on finding your server...sorry for replying to your thread rather late into it but I honestly don't travel to the forums often.
Tylael - I didnt take the name, I've had this name since BC, the character is newer but i've deleted, remade, deleted remade countless times of characters with this name and spins off this name (Alestres, Alestrez, Alestrex, etc.
