Possible Transfers

My guild is looking into coming to this server (horde or alliance, still deciding), but I have a few questions before we do that;

I know this is a very broad and general question, but what is the average level of maturity of this server? I only ask because we are coming from Auchindoun where we average the maturity level to 12 years of age. People aren't helpful, trade chat is abysmal (100% of the time), everyone is very self-interested and not altruistic in any sense whatsoever.

What is the RP community like here? Minimal, moderate, or a lot?

What are the PvP que times like?

Hypothetically, if we needed to pug someone for a raid (say, ICC when it was still a decent challenge) could we count on competence for the most part, or mostly incompetence?

Not to sound elitist or anything like that, but we are considering xfering and faction changing. So there is a pretty decent expense we're looking at and want to make sure we'd be getting our money's worth. The group I'm bringing is chill, a very good group of people, but we're trying to scope our potentials first.

Thanks for your time,

Xarc.

With all due respect, you really don't want to transfer here. This is not the kind of server where you can just plunge into the culture and expect to be able to swim right away. Emerald Dream has a nasty undercurrent that will drag you to the deepest, darkest places that you really do not want to visit.

Roll a fresh toon first, hit the wading beach first, and slowly make your way to the deep end. Or don't and just transfer here, I don't care, but be prepared to see some gross tentacle porn on day one.

Also.. what are pvp queue times... are you dumb?

you know that everyone has the same queue times now and it doesnt matter what server you're on right?

You must be new, welcome to WoW.

What is the RP community like here? Minimal, moderate, or a lot?


Minimal if you don't look for it, a lot if you do.

Milsende addressed this one, also DO look at the ED flow chart.

Hypothetically, if we needed to pug someone for a raid (say, ICC when it was still a decent challenge) could we count on competence for the most part, or mostly incompetence?


For the most part the competent players run their mains and alts with their guilds, so you'd be left with, generally speaking, the special players.

That bar is surprisingly high here considering the backwater nature of ED on progression, so don't sweat that. Also, male Belf, I couldn't take you seriously if I tried.

but we are considering xfering and faction changing.


Alliance side PVE is comatose. Horde side PVE is...alive...kinda.

So there is a pretty decent expense we're looking at and want to make sure we'd be getting our money's worth.


You'll probably regret it.

If you can bring your entire guild over, you might make it. Otherwise not so much.

In all honesty, I think you'd like Emerald Dream but the raiding isn't that great. This server is more known for it's WPvP. As far as maturity goes, alliance side has most of the adult gamers & some of the guilds are very mature. No offense to horde side because I personally loved being horde but they are more of a younger population.
RP is moderate. If you look for it, you will find plenty of it.
