Ouch. Coulda told you that one.

No one's sure* who started it these days, but there's an ongoing flat-out war on a lot of PVP servers between Tarren Mill and Southshore. Even on some PVE servers one side will stomp the other in that zone and provoke a retaliatory raid. Not really sure what Blizzard was thinking** putting important quest hubs for both factions RIGHT NEXT TO cross-faction towns.

*It's the dirty Alliance that started it, back in the days when they outnumbered us honest Hordies about 2:1... but you'll never get one of 'em to admit it.

**My personal theory is that it's something along the lines of "Whoa. Man, that's some good stuff. I am just so groovy now... hey, let's lay out the Hillsbrad Foothills, man..."

STV and Southshore, between them, convinced me to move my priest to a carebear server way back when.

Get on for two hours and spend most of it deadwalking? enough.

I keep my 70 close by when leveling an alt in that area. I had a lvl 29 that was getting camped by a 47. I went and got my 70 and commenced to give him a hard time. Then some other 70s showed and it just escalates from there. I won't give up my pvp servers though. : )

Theramore is where it's at, Ratters.

Outside of early leveling I think once I was able to get to a major city like Org, UC, SW, or IF depending on my char I set my hearth there. Then to Shatt once I was able.

I know the gankings still occur but I don't think I've ever seen it quite as bad as you describe. STV is normally where more of it occurred especially at Nesingway.

@Priestly
Not sure when you leveled but I don't think I've ever spent more than 20 minutes deadwalking cause of being ganked and I've leveled 4 different characters through there at different times ranging from PreBC to PostBC.

Khaz'goroth (PvE server), not a day goes by when the Crossroads is not being attack. You can even fly over/through the zone and...
/3 Crossroads is under attack!
/3 The Gold Road is under attack!
even...
/3 Ratchet is under attack!

Seriously? Ratchet? WTF! How bored do Ally have to get before they attack a Neutral town.

I do like my world pvp but the whole ganking and camping gets really old, really fast when you are leveling. Now that people can level to level cap on a PvE server then xfer to a PvP server if they ever want, maybe it will not be as bad? I know that's wishful thinking.

Booty bay was my breaking point for the Pvp server.. had to skip so many quests as the rogues would camp out BB and Sap sap sap sap sap.. and any agressive action on your part would get you killed.

And this is why I'm happily on an RP server. :)
