Cyranax should try poking around raiding guilds on an Oceanic server if he can't find anything on his own realm to suit. 3am EST is, like, 5pm or something their time, so he should be able to find more raids going on there.

Might also want to try servers on PST. That will be midnight for them, so you might be able to find late night raiding guilds on that schedule. I would guess that with Oceanic servers you could wind up with some noticeable lag/bad connection issues, based on my own experience switching to a server closer to my physical location.

Cyranax - you can go to http://www.wowwiki.com/Realms_List to see all the realms. As people have already indicated you might want to focus on Pacific servers. Oceanic is also an option, or you might look into EU (English) servers as well, but latency can be an issue. I would suggest grabbing some server names, making a few 'toons & testing it out to see if you can find one you like.

@WuganOceanic servers are on Australian Eastern Time but are still located in LA. Apparently after five years Blizzard still can't find a local ISP competent enough to run a WoW server./bitter Oceanic player who wishes that someday he might play WoW with less than 400-600 MS latency.

They'd have to bother looking in the first place.. or piggy-back us off the Asian server farm.
