very logically, i started with http://www.wowrealmstatus.net/factions.php?t=1 to view realm loads (horde centric, alliance centric of even split for batlegrounds) then by type (PvE) then had a look at the realm forum pages.but the best thing was to roll an alt, get to the main city and check out the chat and AH prices/availability. that way you can tell how things are looking.there are other sites that give you information on guild progression for servers like http://www.wowprogress.com/ which can also help.

I knew my server(Thaurissan) was really high on horde but I didn't know it was the highest :O

Up rated for wow progress. I really think that is the best measure of how good raiding is on a server, although I do believe the pug communities on each can vary. I'm told on top servers, there are pugs that end up doing full hardmode clears of current content; however I also know that these "pugs" oftentimes are made up of people from the top 2-3 guilds, and they might bring in a healer or someone else they know from other means.Wow progress is the best place to start, however. From there, you can check out the realm forums, roll a low-level alt, ask around. In wrath, GDKP's were a great way to get your feet wet in end-game raiding, although it remains to be seen with the new raid lockouts how that will go.But yes, start with www.wowprogress.com if your main concern is raiding.

this is what I did. then rolled a couple DK's and got out of the starting zone. I don't get enough time to raid and I'm definitely a loner, but a lot of progression on a server is good for BoEs, the economy and crafted gear.
