In World of Warcraft, I’ve constantly played on low population servers. First it was because I was playing with my husband, then with friends, and then simply because it was comfortable and I was used to it.
The thing is, over the years low population servers have no longer been fun for me to play on (in most cases, there are exceptions). This year I decided it would be a good idea to experiment with higher population servers and see how that goes.
A wise goblin once told me “60 slots – if you aren’t using them you are losing them” so I decided to use my 2nd account and create a character on a whole bunch of servers. I didn’t want to transfer funds to each of these servers, but I wanted to give them some pocket change to play with. This account is also a completely separate battle net from my main account. There are no unlocked allied characters on the horde side.
Right now Blizzard has a promotion going on where you can play Dragonflight with some restrictions if you do not already own Dragonflight. This battlenet does not own the expansion. Normally, one of those restrictions is you can’t make a Dracthyr without first having a level 55 on the server. Thankfully, that rule doesn’t pertain to the promotion.
I created a Dracthyr, and did their first quest. It rewarded 25g. I summoned my mailbox, mailed that to the actual character I wanted to keep, and then deleted. Then I took that 25g to the AH, and in a few seconds (thank you region wide auction house) I flipped it from 25g to 150g. That’s a much nicer number to work with. Recipes and pets only require 1s as a posting fee, and pets can be transferred across servers without any effort.
I haven’t made 60 characters yet, but it’s a start. This is a little more dedicated that I usually am in my gold making, but I do like to challenge myself, so let’s see where this goes. Since it’s my second account it doesn’t really affect my game play at all, and who knows, maybe in time I can work towards being one of the ‘big’ goblins, too.
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
