  1. I see no reason to ever rank up if this is not changed. It basically eliminates competitive PvP as an endgame option for me
  2. Hi all, There is a serious deadzone of administration during late NA and early Oceanic downtime. Several raids and many quests ended in sadness last night as the server went down for what must've been a couple of hours. Whenever it goes down at these times it is down for a long time. The excuse we always hear is, "The administrators need to get out of bed and turn it on". Is this the final answer on this? I mean no offense but I don't intend to progress on this server or recommend anyone else I play with do so if this issue is not addressed. Having the possibility that the server will go out for 2-4 hours during the times that I will raid (and this happens often) just makes it not really worth it to me. I know the community is full of responsible people like myself who are up at these hours and would be willing to help with any manual intervention necessary but it honestly doesn't seem like the administration of this server is concerned about this issue or cares to actually address it. Again, not trying to be a jerk here. Just calling out what seems to be the case. I know the server is provided as a free service but I also know that you aim to provide a good experience. My goal is to point out a serious hole in this experience. My main goal is to get a real response on this. What is being done to fix the crashing? What is the plan for off hours when administration cannot restart the server? Thanks for everything you do, Asheron

    "The Hunt for Rhok'delar" Quest

    Hey, just curious about the situation here. On Nostalrius, we had a line close to a hundred hunters. What are the spawn timers on the demons (Should be 3 hours, but I wouldn't mind if they were quicker)? Are you at serious risk for having people despawn them right away (I know you can't predict this, but are people doing it?) Do the horde and alliance generally work together for this? How long has it taken people to get the demons when they set out for them?
  4. Thanks for the video.It's well done. I will say that in general grinding is faster than questing but the fastest way is ultimately a combination of smart questing and grinding. Joana and other speed runners have pretty much proven this and I find that I can get much more XP/hour when using an optimized quest line (with grinding to fill in areas where good quests don't exist). Joana's horde leveling guide is a classic and Jame's alliance guide (30-60) is faster than straight grinding as well. An additional problem with this approach, though, is that the guides will take you into areas that are very populated and on well populated PVP servers, this can erase any XP/hour. The same thing CAN happen with grinding spots, but this tends to be a bit more flexible than leveling guides. Either way, you're pretty much picking your poison when leveling on a highly populated PVP server if you don't get ahead of the pack.
