I rolled my first character on a PVE server. Why? I wanted to learn the game mechanics without having to worry about getting ganked. Also, I was testing WoW out to see if I would like it and didn't want the grief of getting repeatedly killed to conflict with that. PVE is fun, but once I got high enough to engage in PVP battlegrounds I realized my mistake. Problem is that I spent too much time on my character to reinvest in another, so I just entertain myself with the battlegrounds and shanking anything flagged up that I come across. I have since rerolled on a pvp server, but still use my pve main.There is one thing I have noticed though, as a general matter players who PVP in PVE realms, either by being flagged or through BGs / Arena, tend to have much higher survival rates in 25 man raid environments, at least IMO. I'm not entirely sure why, but I would guess that doing a lot of pvp forces you to think quickly and react quickly, which is very important in most high end raid boss encounters.

Sure, if your goal is purely survival and optimization of killing efficiency, PvP is ideal for honing your skills.But if that's your style of play, me and my characters don't want anything to do with you. I'm here for the questing and the stories. PvP just gets in the way of that with pointless teenaged slaughter-geists and their killgasms.
