Ruin (US) »
Elune is one of the handful of realms that opened on release date. Although not quite as popular as other realms, it has had its share of spotlight moments.
One of the largest drawbacks of this realm remains its imbalance. While the Horde:Alliance ratio plagues nearly all realms, Elune is one of the worst (according to Warcraft Realms census). This is clearly visible when you play on this realm. Since the inception of paid transfers and the collapse of many high-end Horde guilds, many people have left the Horde. Nevertheless, Elune remains a great realm full of unique people and always something new to talk about. Any Horde player looking to join Elune would only find that there are very few, if any, raiding guilds, and that aspects of the game requiring a higher level of Horde compatriots can be somewhat difficult to enjoy.
Some of the following information may be out of date as guilds merge, disband, and are created on a daily basis. Guild list was original compiled from wowprogress.com (10man listing) on August 12, 2010.

Elune in general
In spite of being a release-day server, Elune's PvE progression is something less than impressive, and has had a continuing problem keeping Horde guilds together and functional enough to progress in content. Player activity is still relatively high, and even low-level areas can still see enough traffic for viable game play.
