Hello, Lightninghoof!

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.

This server is amazing for pretty much everything. The community has its hooligans, but besides them it's a nice server to call your home.

yea, I wish I had more to say, but I like to keep things short and sweet.

You might not get many responses from our realm forums though. My advice would be to roll a toon on LH, leveled it up a bit and see if you like what you see so far. It wouldn't be a bad idea.

This server is not every good. Compared to many other servers its actually a bad server pvp wise. I don't think there a single 25 man raiding guild in horde or alliance I MIGHT BE WRONG THO not sure. I know there is plenty of 10 man guilds. No rbg grp is over 1800 horde side.

As for rp i have never seen anybody rp here. I think they mostly all rp in silvermoon. The 3 people standing next to me in valley of strength are usually using the ah or other random stuff.

Think twice before coming to lightninghoof.

I think you end up with a very mature crowd on Lightninghoof, although for a lot of the day we apparently have a slacking population. Quality not quantity on LH. I do think our server is more pvp than anything, but that may just be my personal experience. Also I have heard of a bit of RP, but it will never be like a pure rp server.

Just keep in mind, that aside from our few "hooligans" we have an adult crowd here and although we can get rowdy we are not generally rude. Have fun wherever you go :)

I will put it to you this way, we have not had a glad since season 9 I believe, and we have one team who has 2200 this season who pretty much got it in first few days when you could 1v3 with stampede.. Speaking from an RP point of view it is absolutely dead, I have not seen any serious role playing on this server in the years I have been here. Maybe I am just not looking hard enough? Can't tell you much about PvE considering I don't participate in it, all I know is Alliance is pretty much better in every aspect than the horde..(population, raiding, to a lesser extent pvp).

I'd like to jump into this thread as well. This was my original server back in Wrath when I started, however I left for Wyrmrest Accord.

Was wondering, how is the populace here? Generally mature? Not too many drama llamas?

What are the guilds like? Mostly centered on one or two aspects of the game or more rounded. Personally I like running scenarios, heroics, lfr, some random bgs, and random wpvp.

Hows the economy? Not terribly important, but useful for making gold outside of dailies.
