I decided to take my guild, named The Spot, and move it to US-Dalaran-PVE.
I wrote a blog post about it over on the tsnGuild website: http://guild.the-spot.net/
I did a lot of looking around, and checking with former/current tsn members and wow players, and decided that none of the servers everyone was on, or had recently moved to, would be a good fit for all 9 of my characters (with a spot to level 2 more I am leaving behind). I had certain criteria, and Dalaran knocked one of them out of the park:
- active trade chat during a most mundane time of day.
- a plentiful auction house indicating a good market
- a medium-high population server, but not Full or High on the Connect To Server screen to help ease login queues during new expansion releases
As for servers like Ravencrest, I figured it would be best to leave all Character Slots open on that server so I could level characters as Alliance, since Vanyl is alliance main over there.
