So i’ve seen comments on forums, guild posts and even reddit. Guilds on Hydraxian Waterlords offering a " fresh Start" experience. So decided to do some investigations to see if this was true. How successful ?
Well to my surprise it’s happening , it’s working and it’s exciting.
On horde side there is 2 guilds on Alliance 4 guilds. I Saw players on every zone on /who
Spoke to people in those guilds and they say they get 2-3 fresh restart players per day.
I decided to level up 2 toons Alliance and Horde to see what the leveling experience is like and how " REALLY" active are these guilds ?
To my surprise very active and very active discords. Lots of people on voice chat just having a coversation , having a laugh , 2 dungeon groups going. I leveled a mage on both sides to see how hard it would be for instance running. ( Rolled dps exclusive to make the results less skwered)
So I got to 18 on my hordie in 1 day , I had 2 rfc runs and 1 WC run. Very shocked and suprised to find a group fairly easy.
On Alliance I got to 18 took around 30 mins for a DM group to form. Not too bad.
All i’ve got to say is your looking for a community , tight knit guilds , definately worth checking out Hydraxian Waterlords.
I asked what classes were most needed ? Both sides all responded we don’t care just come and play what you like , bring yourself not the class.
Auction house ? Economy ? It’s all done on the Neutral AH in booty bay and players are still selling stuff 40g plus. The faction specific AH’s are dead because the guilds help each other out. However there are guildless casuals that throw mats and good items on AH. So for leveling proffs not an issue.
The only con obviously for me was I like wpvp and Hydraxian Waterlords is PVE only but it’s a sacrfice i can make.
So trying it out , speaking to the players , speaking to new players who just came on the server. I think atm it is the best alternative solution to your classic era needs.
I will be leveling on here for the future. I hope to see more of you on there maybe chatting on discord.
It’s low pop like all classic era servers so it’s up to the community and the players to make it a success. They sure are doing a good job at it.
That’s my 2 cents on this new upstart by the classic community. Thanks to the players I spoke too and thanks to the officers of these guilds giving me some insight.
