Cheer up! It can’t be that bad.
Method took everybody who was good? Method have - what? - 30 people? So there are only 30 “good” people there, and there’s nobody else “good” on the realm? You have a very high bar for “good”.
Few Guilds? about 50 on TM and 50 on Draenor in M. About 140 in TM and 190 on Dreanor between M and HC. A lot of realms would really love having so “few” guilds to choose from.
As for AH, well, farming mats at the start of a patch is pretty much a staple everywhere, unless you’re a TSM Goblin with buckets of capital to corner markets. Price of Zin’anthid hovers in the low 40s on both TM and Draenor.
