Oceanic General Discussion

Jun 20 Merge OCE Realms Please With a handful of PVP and PVE realms, each with a tiny population (compared to vanilla), we're essentially being forced to either transfer to Frostmourne (Alliance) or Barthillas (Horde). Where is the competitive spirit in that? We can't even sustain a full raid team on most servers outside of the big 2 now. Why not coalesce all OCE PvP servers and all OCE PvE servers into 2 big server groups. You can always shard if need be for population control, but otherwise would counteract the world faction imbalance and open up a huge pool of potential raiders for all involved. Similar to the PvE servers, is there a point playing on a PvE server if your server is limiting you from completing any PvE content?Mistforge14 Jun 20
Jun 20 Ranked Arena Lag/Lag outs So since the launch of 7.2.5 i've noticed alot in my ranked arena games that i'm constantly lagging out at random times for alot 10-20 seconds. Doing ranked is already fun enough (kappa) with the 300ms almost every game thanks to matching with US realms. Is anyone else having issues of freezing/lagging/lagging out randomly during Ranked Arena?Megaa0 Jun 20

Jun 17 Tired of playing alone? Join us !! Hi everyone, If anyone is looking for some nice people to play with and to do current group content with, our community is still going strong. Seeing as we are getting Oceanic players now, I figure I'd let you all know what is happening. Our Oceanic members have all been asking for more Oceanic players. We do have people on at all times of day or night, so always someone to chat with or group up with... We now have over 200 on our Discord server with 30-70 online at all times. No microphone or headset required, as most members hang out in text chat. If you want to use voice chat, there's a group that is starting to use it, as they've grown to know each other now. Members of the community have started a new guild for both factions and are enjoying levelling toons together. Others PvP together, run dungeons, mythics +0 (some for the first time). Several run mythic+ and some even are starting to raid. Any like-minded people are invited to join us, as we are always looking for good friends. You may contact Akatosh#1898 or Shadow#15523 for an invite on btag app, as my btag list is overflowing. However, you can contact me directly on Discord (Worgbane#9655). Looking forward to meeting you, Worg (Discord#9655) P.S. Sorry, I got lazy and posted a copy-pasta (more or less) of my last post in the original thread posted on GD forum almost a month ago... The thread is still bringing in people everyday: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20754846375?page=1Worgbane0 Jun 17

Jun 15 2500 exp warrior stream Hello, My name is Jace, I have recently started streaming my arena gameplay. I am a 2500 exp arena player as warrior and have played the class since BC. I have played numerous other classes to a 2200+ level including hunter, Druid and demon hunter. Outside of the gym I am a personal trainer and passionate gym enthusiast. My stream will typically feature high mmr warrior gameplay and discussion around health and fitness. I put great focus on being vocal and explaining what I am doing. I also ensure to actively engage with my audience and will give feedback to all questions and comments. My stream hours are quite scattered but I will provide a roster of my stream times well in advance. If you're looking for a positive environment to hang out and the stream sounds interesting to you, give me a few minutes of your time to see if I'm worth it. I look forward to meeting you. Twitch.tv/Jacelad Thanks, JaceJace0 Jun 15

Jun 15 Bad grouping Why are we still getting placed into raid where a encounter has already started and we cannot zone in, you think by now blizz would have a way of not allowing this to happen. We can either leave the group and get the 30 min debuff or wait til the encounter is over, just wasting time. Pls fix this, it is annoying and happens way to often.Sadbeef1 Jun 15
Jun 14 Please explain mistweaver monk OP!! OK I'm more than a bit pissed off that I bombed a mist weaver monk in the underbelly to see his health not drop one bit. My recount said I did 820k in lava burst 700k lava burst overload and 500k earth shock for me to only see his health bar not move at all. he proceeded to wreck me in probably less than 20 seconds as I ran knowing I cant do a thing. note I was the person that engaged and I'm just starting to get into pvp. Please explain how a mistweaver monk can do this as frankly I don't see the point in pvp if this is going to be what its like.Thorimia3 Jun 14
Jun 13 Why do people hate gnomes? I was just wondering why do so many people want to eat gnomes and talk about how good they are punting is it because they are so small and you rage when killed by one I love gnomes and also I'm going to make a gnome warrior should I be a female or male one.Blasphemite32 Jun 13
Jun 12 Deathknight FoS removal next patch? https://eu.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/17615664181#4 It's bad enough that we got the Priest Mount's tooltip for our Mount on our Class Mount Quest, but please tell me you won't remove it from people who got it already. Why bother removing it from Players who got it? This is asked assuming, of course, that there will be any non-regular-players reading this. On a barely more positive note: anyone go the extra mile to get this now-temporary-FoS?Arturius4 Jun 12
Jun 11 Pug group discord https://discord.gg/cRvADCu Hey all, been working hard to grow my friends list to make the creating of pugs across my characters a whole load easier. But have had the idea of creating a discord, to completely void the wait time of the LFG system. Feel free to join up and receive notifications as to when pugs are starting. We run 9+ heroics per week as well as normal's of old and current tier, and plan to continue straight into week one of ToS. Experienced leader and don't really tolerate nor do I hesitate to remove spergs, most runs are clean and fast. Roles in discord will come down the track to help identify the ability of the group we're forming. Feel free to come join and enjoy some fast clean runs and gear your alts.Hasdjkjnasdf0 Jun 11
Jun 9 Noob Questions G'day! noob WoW player, long time mmo player here a couple of noob-ish questions: i understand i will get my artifact weapon at lvl 100? will i get a prompt for that quest in my adventure journal? or where do i go for that? should i be clearing all of Draenor and building my Garrison up? or do we lose importance/focus on that stuff in 100-110? it seems like a decent resource generator for now, but do we outgrow it? should i be trying to get all my followers??Mojori6 Jun 9

Jun 8 Stuck on U.S World Servers after leaving grp There has been an ongoing issue recently since 7.2.0 with Oceanic server players when they join a group that has U.S players in it. We do what we need to do kill a boss or do an instance but when we leave the group we remain on that U.S server and with all its ping related issues. Sometime it can be fixed by asking people to invite you back to Oceanic or going to class hall but this doesn't always fix it. Can we get a fix for this please?Kerbsie3 Jun 8
Jun 6 Is Australian WoW dead? Havent had one dungeon with under 200 ping and none of them were Aus. Is everyone just lvl 100+? or is the game just not as populatedDarsh4 Jun 6
Jun 6 No PvP on Oceanic servers till 110? A couple of days ago I paid for some game time for the first time since WOD ended. I've been pretty busy with work and studies and have just been playing my level 20 F2P characters since then. At 20 I got battleground pops pretty consistently no matter what time I played. Since leveling past 20 (I'm 47 now) I have never had a battleground or arena pop for me even after queuing for many hours straight. I also tried queuing on my level 80 and 100 characters with no battlegrounds or arenas popping. Is this what I can expect until hitting 110? Feeling pretty disappointed to be honest :(Hillsong2 Jun 6
Jun 6 Unofficial Oceanic RP server? Is there one? Or is there a server where most of the RP players play on that is OCEANIC? I don't really want to be pidgeonholed into playing on a US realm, as an Australian play, especially now that are servers are so nice and close.Howl1 Jun 6
Jun 6 Refer a friend. Anybody looking to get into WoW? I'm looking for someone to level toons with. Note: i wont buy battle chest but can buy heirlooms which further increases the EXP buff. Thanks :)Cetee0 Jun 6

Jun 3 Melee DPS LF casual raid group Hey all. I'm a retribution paladin, sitting at 872 ilvl. I'd love to get back into raiding, in Cataclysm I pushed a server first Valiona and Theralion 25HC, so I know what it's like to progress with a team and be a functioning member of a raid group. Just graduated and have my first 9-5 job, so I figured I'd get back into it because my schedule allows it. I know I'm low ilvl, but even normal Nighthold at this point would be fun to do. It seems absurd that LFG wants 900+ to run a dungeon that drops 875. CheersIskiplegday1 Jun 3
Jun 2 Finding a wow magazine released in 2011 Hello, i'm trying to find an old magazine released in 2011 for nostalgic reasons. It was a wow tutorial with death wing on the front focusing on cataclysm. On the very back of it was an advertisement for Rift with the slogan "Not in azeroth anymore". I remember it had a page for every class, and mentioned something about thrall and how he reforged and gems lmao. It was a solid magazine and I don't know if it was released in the US hence oceanic forums. I know it wasn't the official Brady games or any other official wow magazine from blizzard due to the advertisement. Any help would be appreciated ! ThanksVectivis1 Jun 2

May 31 Instance Lag Not sure if this a known issue or not. Lately I have been finding that when I queue for a dungeon through the dungeon finder or queue for random BG's I end up on what I assume are US instance severs with borderline unplayable ping. It ranges from 300-800ms and is extremely frustrating. Send help.Zetsù6 May 31

May 26 Worgen eye scaring I'm just asking because I'm sure I couldn't have been the only one that this has to happen to. Back in Cataclysm when my Worgen finished the starting area his right eye would scar and turn red no mater what face/eye colour I picked, so my Worgen had the red/purple eyes and now it just doesn't seem to happen anymore and I thought it was some sort of ester egg thing that some how found and everywhere I've looked so far there has been no proof that it ever even happened in the game.Arkymonde3 May 26
May 24 death from above So ive come back after a woeful time with cancer once again. Flying , i thought yippee sadly im just dont able to do many in the broken show becuse there are just not enough quests, and 75 rep a time kinda sucks, plus most have flying and so while trying to get rep or do other unfinished quests ppl just swoop down take the mob im going for , its cool i get it and hell if i had flying id be doing the same , just so frustrating do click on a mob and before i can pull someones zooomed down and they have them , happens so much it does get on my nerves i guess the painfully slow grind and having ppl do the swoop thing is making the game annoying yes a grumpy old mans post:PZhool3 May 24

May 19 Great Distraction during Ration Challenge Gonna be doing the Act for Peace ration challenge at the end of June, where I spend a week eating the equivalent of what a Syrian refugee receives in rations which is just small amounts of rice, flour, lentils, chickpeas, beans, and oil. Super glad I have WoW to distract myself from a week without cheeseburgers! Anyone who is so inclined, please follow the link below to sponsor me and donate towards providing food, healthcare, and education for refugees. Any other WoW players doing the ration challenge? We could create a team together maybe! https://actforpeace.rationchallenge.org.au/fundraisers/tzaramcgenniskinAdvocaat2 May 19

May 16 Some help with Oceanic Realm choice please. G'day guys, Looking to make a Horde warrior for both pvp (eventually rated Bgs/arena and raiding, and Can't decide on server. I've had a look on specific realm sub-forums but it's just full of raiding guild advertisements demanding 880iLevel experienced etc. Is there a server that's considered more social with newer raiding guilds or should I just go make one on Frostmourne as it's populated?, and are people in Frost as up themselves as their reputation? Are there any servers that are somewhat balanced between factions and population? Cheers guys.Beinon7 May 16
May 14 How to find mature social guild? How does one find a mature social guild these days? I am a social, somewhat casual player. I like to chat and have fun while playing. I can raid, when I get better gear, but it isn't my main priority, but if I commit to a group I'll always be there. But I like to wander around, catch pets, go fishing, as well as all the other things people do. Why is it so hard to find a fun mature social guild these days? I am more than happy to transfer servers if required. I like to talk, and I like to be replied to!! What happened to all the fun grown ups? Did they all take raiding too seriously? I can be serious when required, but just want like minded people to talk to while I run around after critters!!!Vicereine10 May 14
May 13 LF Friends Hi everyone Just reactivated after 3-4 years offline Most likely will be online weeknights or sometimes during weekend Looking for friends to do dungeons and Legion content together (if it requires group) Other than that, I will also be solo-ing old raid content to collect stuff.

May 10 Glad Rogue former EU Player moved to AU It has been a while. So as the title suggest I am a former EU player and I recently moved to Sydney (Australia), pursuing studies in Interactive Media @College and working as Bartender for a living. It has been a while since I last played WoW (and since I read this forum), but I decided to buy an US licence and start playing in this region (tried EU -> 300 ms -> !@#$ it). Even though I don't have all the stuff from my old account, I feel like it would be cool to play in a different region ... My only concern is that my Friends List is empty (FeelsBadMan) and that's really not cool, so: Emc#21603 (Playing Horde on US-Barthilas at moment) I don't mind if you play PvE or PvP and at what level ... As long as you don't spend your time playing Battle Pets or RPing it's ok. For the more elitists, just gonna quickly show my e-peen (nothing crazy anyway): Playing Since: "Vanilla" 2006 Class Played: Rogue 80% - Warlock/Druid/Hunter/Priest 20% PvE Cleared all high end content up to WotLK with several First Server Kills in TBC. Did not play Cataclysm. PvP Came back in MOP only for PvP. Played my first arena ever in S13. S14: 2200 rating achieved in all the arena brackets S15: 2550 rating playing as RPS 3 months into the season (I couldn't play the whole season) S16: got Gladiator playing as RMP/D (mostly Sub ... Until my arena mates started complain about me not being Combat around 2600 rating) That's it, feel free to add me, catch ya in game.Emc0 May 10
May 9 Another prime time server shutdown!!?? Blizz, are you even aware that you're (once again) shutting oceanic servers down right in the middle of our evening raid window? Why couldn't the maintenance happen an hour or three later, so it has a far more limited impact on oceanic players (and will still have no effect on the great majority of US players on the west coast)?Rainingblood11 May 9

May 8 Is Heroic Raiding Possible? Trying to create a heroic only raiding guild that is just chilled and not to serious about the game. I have a few friends and we used to play HC but that was a few years back now but we still love to play the game but we don't want to spend hours playing and get that feeling of obligation that comes with progression raiding, we have been trying to recruit now for a few weeks but it is starting to feel highly unlikely that it's even going to happen. I have manged to find 3 or 4 players that have come on board with the idea but thats it. I know back in LK - Cata days and even early MoP before Flex trying to build a raid team wasn't that hard but it seems now that guilds can just stock up on players it has made the tight nit 10-15m raid teams redundant or very hard to create at the very least. R.I.P smaller Guilds maybe?Némésis3 May 8
