Some Players moving to PvE Server
Yesterday saw several additional players transferring from Deathwing to Proudmoore (High Pop PST PvE server). I think that makes 6 total CAlliance members to head to Proudmoore in the past couple weeks. The sale on transfers ends tomorrow so anyone who is looking to transfer to a PvE server should probably check out the Costa guild that was set-up by the players who left Deathwing yesterday.
Transfering to a PvE server provides opportunities and risk. Most important from my perspective is that cross-realm Mythic Raiding isn't opened up until after the content is no longer relevant. Players taking their raiding toon off of Deathwing would not be able to participate in Mythic raiding on Deathwing. We can include cross-realm players in for Normal/Heroics, but to switch the group to Mythic I'll need 20 players on the same realm. The Progression groups ability to switch to Mythic has been set back substantially, by this latest move and I'm not sure if enough players will transfer or be able to be recruited on proudmoore to open up Mythic raiding there. I will proceed in whatever way seems best to get us into Mythics, but with these transfers I don't think we'll get there in the next few weeks.
If any other raiders are considering transferring their raiding toons to proudmoore, please give me a heads up. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/guild/proudmoore/Costa/
