I've done this a few times as well. A lot of my friends play WoW, as I later learned, but none of them on the same realm. I think I've memorized the starting area by now.
Which realm are ya on again? The main realm I'm on is Tichondrius (pvp), and I have a few on a pve server too, Malygos. I'll probably end up moving at least the 60 Warlock over to Tich if I stay past this trial again. Pvp servers are just a lot more fun.
My main realm is Thunderhorn (PvE). I'm pretty sure I lack the patience to quest in a PvP realm. All I've heard are horror stories!
Do you know if both factions can be a deathknight? I'm alliance and made one, can Horde do it too? My initial guess is yes?
You sure can. They just can't be on he same server. Only one DK per realm.
