Seriously. It must be full of non-rare pet hunters. I dinged 85 on trusty Rustee today and made a beeline for Vash'jir. A quick 'who' check shows that I'm THE ONLY HUNTER IN THE ZONE!!! I circled the reef twice and BANG! there's Ghostcrawler! I land and brief moment later I roll out of Vash'jir with CaptnPhil in tow.
On to Deepholm. I start crushing quests to get the Therazene dailys to unlock so I can get the bomb one and park myself in Jadefang's den once I do. Well as I'm flying over the cave NPCscan goes off. HOLY HELL HE'S THERE NOW!!! I go rushing into the cave with about 5 other hunters only to find another 5 or so at the ledge trying to get up there without a rez or a bomb. He's there. I can't see him but he shows up on tracking. A quick 'who' check reveals the night elf druids in the zone who can help me by dying themselves, getting up to the ledge as a ghost sprite and then rezzing me up there with them.
Weeeeelllll it turns out that all the night elf druids in the zone LITERALLY PUT ME ON IGNORE as I kept offering more gold to 'rez me to a ledge'. It's like they're allergic to gold (or busy with their own affairs…talk about selfish! =P ). About 7 miutes have passed and I'm REALLY starting to freak out. “What if one of these other shmucks gets there first?” “Worse! What if they get there and kill him for the mini pet?” AAAAGGGGHHH!!!!!! What do I do?!?!
That's right, I pick up the phone and get my nephew in Ohio on the line. He's got a night elf druid. He logs on. “WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU HAVEN'T LEVELED THIS GUY YET?!?!?!” Another 'who' search shows ONE FRIGGIN WARLOCK IN THE ZONE!!! Don't warlocks realize that desperate hunters who need to get a under-leveled night elf druid into the zone NEED THEM TO DO IT?!?!?!
Ugh! 50g later I get a 'lock who just zoned in and a random passer-by to help me summon my nephew. I lead him to the ledge and he dies. He apparently was unaware of the fact that he could 'fly' up as a sprite and was happy to learn that. Now that he's up there I let the worms kill me. “WHAT DO YOU MEAN I'M 'NOT IN LINE OF SIGHT' TO BE REZZED?!?!?!” Holy hell could more things be going wrong here? As I'm making my own corpse run I'm thinking this is doomed to fail. It's been a good 15 minutes or so now and SOMEONE has to have got to the ledge right? WRONG! I rez, die a little farther out, get rezzed to the ledge and a brief moment later I'm hearthing with Kryptonite by my side.
Whew! That was a crazy two hours.
I love my server!

Can you switch between servers or are you locked into the server you start with?
Im not sure if it's just that I'm a level 34 noob but there does not seem to be a lot of interaction between other player when I'm in the big cities. Something magical happen when you hit higher levels? I have had no offers to join any guilds.
