Hello, Sisters of Elune!

I'm considering a move, and you're on my list of prospective new homes. But, before I make a decision, I need to first gather some information. If you would be so kind, I would greatly appreciate your input on the following brief questionnaire.

First, what is the role-play like on your server? I'm used to a more casual and spontaneous approach, but I understand that some servers favor a more structured, guild-based approach to role-play. Some such servers could be described as "cliquey" in a sense. Also, when I say spontaneous, I mean that I'm used to standing around in Stormwind or Orgrimmar and striking up a conversation in character with a perfect stranger - I'm not talking about "out in the world" RP.

Second, is your server "well rounded?" Do you focus primarily on role-play, PVP, raiding, or a combination of the three? I enjoy raiding and PVP as much as I enjoy role-playing. If I can find a server that somehow manages to balance even two, I'd be elated.

Last, just to provide you with some context, let me tell you a few things about myself.

As I had said, I'm mostly casual in my approach to role-play. That being said, I have years of experience over a multitude of outlets, and I know the ins and outs. I tend to prefer role-playing within the confines of the Warcraft continuity, but, again, that being said, I'm not a Lore stickler. If I find someone utilizing a form or theme I dislike, I'm more apt to simply let them know I'm not interested in playing and move on my merry way - I'm anything but confrontational when it comes to role-play.

On the raiding and PVP side, I'd describe myself as competent. I've dabbled in arenas with minimal success, but I haven't really committed myself to that venture yet. I expect that I'll be successful once I apply myself.

I have heroic experience in a number of raids. And, although I don't want to seem pretentious, I've come to the conclusion that my greatest hinderance has been other raiders. That being said, if I am critical, I am anything but vocal. The most I ever say is always on the positive side of things - I don't want to give the impression that I'm some sort of elitist. I certainly put in the time and effort to research and min-max my performance, but I don't begrudge anyone for not living up to my standards - I understand this is just a game at the end of the day.

Well, that was a lot more long-winded than I had originally intended, but if you've made it this far, I thank you. If you can stand another minute or two to answer my questions, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thank you again for your time and patience.

Well as far as the PvE and the PvP side of the server goes I think the best would be to head on over to

http://www.wowprogress.com/pve/us/sisters-of-elune

Speaks for itself, there is raiding going on the server, but your options are limited more so on alliance side, horde having more progress on their side, still only looking at handful of guilds. I mainly say that because if you think that other raiders are bringing you down, then I dunno if you have the patience for a small server.

As far as PvP goes,
http://www.crossladder.com/arena/ladder/s=504;ts=3/
basically paints the picture for this server, 3 horde 2 alliance teams that have gone high rank enough to get onto the ladder. For RBGs, as far as I know there is no regular alliance RBG group.

World pvp if you are into that happens every once in a while, but node in krarasang will stay capped to the same faction for hours without contest usually. Tol Barad rarely gets over 5 players per side and in wintergrasp i'd say the average is 3-4 people in the zone.

Now I can't speak for the RP, but with CRZ goldshire does have some spontaneous sessions, but then again, when Moon Guard doesn't have enough population, we get rolled into their phase, so... it's moon guard.

Well hope to see you around if you decide to join.

Thanks, Galdtor! Your input has been especially helpful on the PVP and PVE side of things.

Can anyone else offer any more input on the role-play in SOE? I could swear I remember hearing good things.

First I think that the lack of response to this thread should tell you something about the RP community or lack thereof.

I can honestly tell you, and this comes from about 5 years of experience on this server, on both factions, that RP here is scarce at best. What you -do- find on Alliance is rarely nice...save for the exceptional guild like say with the people of <Clockwerk>, but overall I don't suggest you come here if you're looking for a place to immerse yourself or find anything that isn't vapid. The vast majority of our role players on both Horde and Alliance moved to WrA and Moonguard. Most of the RP we see here is from WrA and Moonguard having cross realm zoned into our server. I've met a lot of nice people from Cenarion Circle, you might desire to try there. I just would hate to see you spend real money to come here when there isn't much RP wise to come here for. Good luck with your search. Hope you find what you're looking for.
