Is this realm tolerable?

Hello!

I'm currently looking for a realm with a decent economy and a nice community. I know that there will always be jerks on every realm and what not, but some realms have the best communities and I'm making inquiries to see if this is one of them! I have a few questions:

1. Who is more populated on this realm? Horde or Alliance?

2. When is the peak time of the server, like when the cities start getting crowded?

3. How is the economy?

1. Alliance, by far.

2. Normal times I suppose. 5-11 pm? I dunno.

3. Some will say it is "overpriced" but it's exactly what you'd expect from a medium-low pop server economy.

Completely agree with this, except I wouldn't say the cities are ever crowded.

No idea on the horde side but from info from my friends on other servers our economy is complete crap and everything is way under priced on the AH. If you are ever looking for a server where people undercut ridiculousness amounts then this is the place. I would say it's due to the lack of major raiding guilds which bring more gold into the economy. Less money to spend = cheaper prices in the Ah.

Aside from the AH issues I do enjoy playing on this server. The friends I have made are all great people to hang out with and that's really all I ask for (I am not a raider) from this game. Enjoyable people to run around Azeroth and kill stuff with.

Hope you find what your looking for in a server!

This realm is kind of like a small town, as in, everyone knows everyone else, and everyone knows everyone else's drama. As others have said, there's cheap AH prices, a stronger Alliance population, and not really so much of a "peak" time. The cities aren't ever crowded or anything, you can /who Orgrimmar 90 or /who Two Moons 90 at any time and it'll be less than the max. Trade chat is usually either silent or being trolled. PuG raids are non-existent.

I can't speak for Alliance side, but if you are looking for progression, I wouldn't recommend horde.

But we have a few extremely stable guilds horde side (ourselves, and Relic) that casually raid and, are more social fun guilds. At least we are, I can't completely speak for Relic but that's the vibe I get.

Not saying there aren't any, just saying there aren't a lot which I think would push up our economy if there were more.

That was also a good point from Padook about trade chat, its kinda the same about the alliance side except for the silent part, I would say it is silent every now and again, especially after I try to make a joke, but you will find people selling stuff or recruiting and that sort of thing a good part of the time and the rest of it is trolling.

One last thing, a good major majority of the population do not visit the forums or if they do, they are very quite.

Ravencrest is one of the worst realms I have ever had to endure. It's severely underpopulated and virtually everyone on it is bad. The economy is awful, things are way overpriced and people still undercut by ridiculous amounts (ridiculously high). The community of Ravencrest is probably smaller than your family, and everyone is awful at PvE, PvP, and playing the auction house.

There are some good people on Ravencrest, of course.... but from a game-play perspective...Ravencrest is practically a wasteland and I would suggest going somewhere else

Yeah I'm sure the raiding scene on stormrage is awesome.

It is good but good luck at those prestigious server firsts. Those might have came easy in the past on a backwoods server but with the likes of Midnight Sanctuary, Progression, Opponent being top ranked you have your work cut out for you.

But hey what do I know, first place on ravencrest beats rank 100 on stormrage or does it now or are we going for ranks in world placement?

To the guilds still slaying bosses on the Ravencrest scene I for one salute you, and for those who left good luck with your endeavors.

got to love people like this, who come to our fourms only to slap our face. ravencrest was bad for you, big freaking deal, your not apart of it so why should you care what they hell goes on here. i know many good people from this realm, and just because some people haven't downed all bosses in normal MSV means that this realm is crap and should feel like crap?

/end rage

but seriously. why would you say stuff like this, your not helping anybody, your just making this realm look bad just because you hate it

i don't understand why anybody who leaves reavecrest have to keep reminding people who might want to come here, that this realm is crap.

theappfan stated in a previous thread that he still has an attachment to this realm and is the reason why he still posts here, so why would you kick the thing you attached to? it just doesn't make sense to me.

It sure is, being able to pug on my alts and getting further in raids than most guilds on Ravencrest.

If this is a shot at me, I'm not too concerned with getting Realm Firsts anymore. Also, lol @ posting on an alt.

It's an odd sort of "attachment". There's an attachment only because I've been playing on Ravencrest for my entire time playing WoW. If I only played on Ravencrest for a short duration, I would absolutely despise the realm.

Well, I'm not just randomly posting hatred in a random thread. The OP asked if Ravencrest was tolerable, and I gave my honest opinion. Just because my opinion of Ravencrest is negative doesn't mean it's any less justified to be in a thread asking what people think of Ravencrest.

See:

Most pugs on Stormrage go 6/6 MSV easily. However, the only pug that I've done so far the two tanks were having terrible internet connections and we decided to call it because it was a very late night pug.

I've done one total pug on Stormrage at 4AM, so of course it would fall apart after people were having internet issues. I haven't had any free time during off-raid days to do any peak-time pugs. If you're on anywhere near peak time you'll see a ton of pug MSV, HoFs, and even the occasional ToES.
