Dec 26th 2007 1:30PM 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.
