Ask WoW Insider: Best way to find a new server?

Barb Dybwad

Welcome everyone to Ask WoW Insider, where we publish one of your questions every Friday (feed us new questions at ask AT wowinsider DOT com!). Last week we looked at how to level a character far from home in another race's starting zone. This week we look at solutions to a common problem: finding a new server. MrRaist writes:

This week's question is: What is the best way about moving on, and finding a new server to play on? WoW has so many possibilities when it comes to servers, but what's the best way to find a good one? I play on a US PVE server (won't say the name to protect the lousy players) and I've reached a point where the server doesn't do anything for me anymore. The economy is terrible, the players are terrible, and finding a decent group of players to do anything is just this side of impossible. So how do I move on? Read the forums? Ask WoW Insider? Just take a random stab in the dark with a new toon and then move my old ones over to the new server when I get a feel for the new one? I have 4 toons I want to move, so I'm looking at $100 to move them. I want to be sure before I move any of them to a new home.

What do you think?
We've looked at correlated issues before, particularly how to find a good guild, but switching servers en masse presents a different set of problems as well. How would you go about finding a new home for your toons, or do you have experiences to relate about having gone through the process?

LFG KZ has had some ideas on this topic, and of course before you make the leap you'll want to know the best way to /gquit (does anyone else feel a mashup coming on?). Let us know your tried and true methods for finding the best server for you in the comments, and send us your questions for next week to ask AT wowinsider DOT com.
