People looking to transfer here - Read this

Updated: 24/4/2015 - Patch 6.1

So, pretty much daily there is a new thread or sometimes two of someone wanting to transfer to the server and asking questions, seeing as people are too lazy to search for previous threads I am hoping if this can get stickied it will stop a lot of these threads from being made.

History:
Frostmourne, named after the sword which corrupted Arthas, is an Oceanic realm that was also the first Oceanic PVP Realm to be opened on the 22nd of October, 2005. It is filled with a number of excellent guilds and players who have made a name for themselves and Frostmourne in both PvP and PvE combat.

Time zone/Server status:
Frostmourne, is an Oceanic realm which means the vast majority of the population live in Australia, New Zealand and throughout South-East Asia. As of the 28/10/14 Frostmourne will be hosted in Australia meaning US players will suffer from upwards of 180 latency, unless your schedule makes it impossible to raid on US realms I advise you don't transfer here. Also we will probably be sleeping during your prime time.
The server time is GMT+11 (AEDT)

Characters seen:
Alliance - 212,559 (67%)
Horde - 104,362 (33%)

Queues:
The server status is full, meaning while the server might not be at capacity at all times it will be close to it. So you may be susceptible to queues. This is not usually the case but it will be after some content patches and definitely is after expansion releases. WoD had 8 hour+ queues at all times for over 2 weeks.

PVP:
Battlegrounds: In case you are a bit late on the band wagon all US battle groups were merged in 4.1, meaning you will not get a higher win rate of random battle grounds if you transfer here, it would be the same.

Rated Battlegrounds: Another question often asked is on the topic of Rated Battlegrounds. If you keep an eye out in trade or general chat you will see low/no mmr RBG's running daily. There are also higher rated mmr RBG's running constantly as well. You will have no trouble pugging these if you don't want to join a guild.

World pvp: Outside of farming Stormshield/Warspear in a raid group everyone afks in their garrison, only place to consistently find 100's is outside BRF.

Tol Barad/Winter Grasp: Surprisingly active, 40+ people at peak sometimes. Easy 500 honor for wins.

Ashran:
Queues have eased off a lot since launch, currently about 1hr queues at peak time as apposed to 8 hours ques on launch. Somewhat active but the population that actually does it is slowly dwindling.

PVE:
We are the rank 3 Realm for PVE progression as of this update.

6.0:
Grats to <Honestly> for taking out realm first Mythic: Mar'gok and getting a sub 20 US ranking!

Guardian PoV:

6.1:
<Honestly> once again got realm First with a Mythic Blackhand kill coming US 7th, and sub 50 world.

(Moved old PvE stuff down to the 2nd post because I was at character limit.)

World Bosses:
Aside from Rhukmar mount farming groups I think the other 2 bosses are generally neglected.

Old content: Can literally find and pug anything you want. I see dozens of pre WoD runs a day, if you are after anything specific just use the ingame group finder.

Economy:
Like most high-pop servers the economy is very robust, there is an absolute huge stockpile of anything you need. Profession mats are always abundant, we also have one of the best TCG mount markets of any server on US.

If you feel anything is missing feel free to post.

Cool 56 alt bro, whether they are server transfers or not does not mean they enjoy reading the spam "Transferring here answer my questions that have already been answered 400 times" threads

I'm not a server transfer. Good work. I endorse everything above.

With one addition. We need more Horde. The end.

Daish, that just makes people not want to come. Why can't you hurry up and get yourself perm banned from the forums already, you have already been suspended a few times; can't be far off now.

I find it hard to believe little gnomes would be able to enslave us "full sized" people.
