Yeah, I get this dilemma. I think it depends on what fresh means to you and how much you want to experience of it. If that leveling rush is the big part of it, then go Angerforge and experience that! I have a feeling a lot of fresh-chasers are going to drop their fresh characters to go back to their mains for WotLK content, but I suspect Angerforge will have a decent enough population for a while. We’ll see as time progresses.
If they allow transfers off Skyfury, then I don’t see either realm lasting at all. I’d certainly stop playing on Fresh, and either go back to my TBC main or just quit if they did that. I’m not a big fan of the server imbalance on Faerlina, and was hoping to escape server transfer destruction by rerolling fresh.
idk what you’re looking for for end-game, or for server health, but as long as they keep their promise of no transfers for Skyfury for at least 90 days, and then only if there are some serious server health considerations to allow for them, I think it will be a very healthy and good realm to play on. The current queue times are obviously only temporary and will subside sooner or later.
I’m not sure about Angerforge though. I’d be a little hesitant to jump ship at this point, and I don’t know if I care whether it does well or fails, I’m quite disappointed that they literally stated:
And then almost immediately opened a new fresh-PvP realm.
