This should be a simple question


I was spending my Monday morning thinking about my future plans in World of Warcraft. More specifically about how and where I plan to level characters in Warlords of Draneor.

In the end I plan to only level two characters to the cap next expansion.

I figure One Horde and One Alliance will allow me to play with any friends that happen to be doing something at the time i’m on. If I have too many as I have in the past I’ll simply burn out and accomplish nothing. 

For now my goal heading toward WoD is to get those two characters leveled up to 90, get their bank alts leveled at least to the point of having a mount to run around town on, and to spread my assets between those two toons.

Alliance side I already have pretty well set.  I’m leveling on Draenor, in the guild Mythos. I have plenty of resources there to support the pally, even a few high levels (85’s) I can use as bank alts.

Horde side is a different story.

I have three places I could easily call home. All have their ups and downs.

On One server I have a friend that I talk to quite a bit, who is fun to game with, and who is often online at the oddball hours that I manage to fit WoW into my life. I also have no resources at all there, beyond that friendship.

Granted, I could simply move money over via buying and selling pets so that’s not really an issue. With Heirlooms about to become cross server mailable why not move there? It’s a bit of work, but such is life. I plan to turn all my assets into cash soon anyway.

Second is a server with a number of good friends, a place I really liked to call home. A place with about 5K in cash and easily 10K worth of stuff in my personal Gbank. Hell, I even have some heirlooms there.

On the down side, I haven’t seen any of them online in quite a while. The heirlooms and cash, while making life easier, are not that big of a deal. As I said, i’m liquidating everything anyway.

Third is the server I most recently played on. It has a large active guild, one that will probably be doing Mythic content at some point. They aren’t a very social bunch, but there is little to no drama. (It’s simply not tolerated, which I like.)

I have about 30K G sitting there, plus 12 guild bank tabs full of stuff spread over three vaults. I don’t know how much it’s all worth, but I’ll conservatively say 100K.

Just a quick look says that I should probably level on the server with all the extra resources, after all I will be able to run just about anything with any friends that come online anyhow right?

Does it really matter what server I’m on?

Once I consolidate everything all the resources will be split between the two, so maybe it really doesn’t matter?

Why is this buzzing around in my head so much?

It should be simple right?

Right?

  1. My image of the game in a year or so is that the only real value to being on a particular server will be having access to particular guilds. If you aren’t choosy about guilds or just have your own personal guilds (as is my situation, I got tired of guild crap and gave up a few years ago, I stay friendly with some but won’t join any) it won’t really matter what server you’re on if you’re willing to Battletag with all your friends. So, in that case and without any major drawbacks that you haven’t mentioned (servers with queues would be one example, not fun when you finally have time to play and are faced with a 45m login queue) I’d go with your 3rd server listed, I don’t see a downside. As you say, you’ll be able to run almost all content with anyone cross-server anyway, short of Mythic raiding, and if you eventually want that you may actually have a chance with your Mythic raiding guild buddies on that server.
