Darrowmere Lake

General Information

Darrowmere US (PvE) is named after Darrowmere Lake in the Western Plaguelands. The realm opened on Oct. 5, 2006 and is a Pacific time zone (UTC-8) realm. Like the other members of Battlegroup US Whirlwind, the servers for Darrowmere are physically located in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. (See US realm list by datacenter.)

As of March 16, 2010 Darrowmere US was converted from a PvP to PvE designation.

Free realm transfers to Darrowmere took place from Jan. 22, 2008 to Jan. 29, 2008 from Mal'Ganis, Kel'Thuzad, Sargeras, Tichondrius, and Maelstrom.

Free realm transfers off Darrowmere took place from March 3, 2010 to April 6, 2010 to Alterac Mountains, Auchindoun, Malorne, and Vashj

Community

Darrowmere has a friendly, tight-knit feeling and a strong community. Many transfers to other realms find themselves coming back or rerolling on Darrowmere in order to continue to take part in the community they left behind. Darrowmere had long been among the lowest-population servers since launch, but starting with free realm transfers that took place in 2008 and 2010, the population has risen dramatically.

As of December 2011, the realm has steadily maintained a medium population. The server currently has an Alliance bias, with as much as a 3:1 ratio over the Horde. Server queues are nonexistent on Darrowmere.

PvP Activity

Darrowmere has a strong PvP community, active in both battlegrounds and Arena. Queue times for battlegrounds are generally never longer than 10 minutes for Horde, more often under 5 minutes, and arena queue times are similar.

Large world PvP raids on opposing faction capitals are uncommon, but not unheard of.

Tol Barad on Darrowmere continues to see plenty of combatants wage their battle for control. The zone changes hands on a daily basis, despite the stronger Alliance presence on the server.

Economy

The economy on Darrowmere may reflect the comparatively small raiding population. Cataclysm gear is under-priced in comparison to servers with a higher raiding population, although there is a reasonable selection of it. Epic crafted items, extremely rare drops and recipes and profession crafting mats generally sell for lower than they would on servers with a higher raiding population, possibly due to lower demand, and rare drops often take relatively longer to sell.

Progression

Although Darrowmere had ranked among the least progressed servers during Wrath of the Lich King, there has been a steady resurgence in progression raiding on the server in Cataclysm, particularly since the release of Firelands. Many of the PvE raiding guilds on the server favor casual raiding.

Current progression can be found at either Server:Darrowmere US/Progression or the Official Darrowmere Forums
