Decent RP realm, with very friendly people if you find them. However, there are quite some "less" friendly people as well, as you always get one with the other when it comes to RP realms. Not as much random RP as in the very beginning of the realm birth, but recently there's been signs of it starting to pick up again. The best way to find RP would be to introduce yourself on the forums and join a RP guild, or if you want to fly solo for a while and still want some RP to spice things up, the best bet would be to use /e as often as you can while in main cities - without exaggerating of course.

If you don't appreciate the less accepted RP styles (vampire RP, dragon RP, exaggerated demon RP), you should probably not want to RP in Goldshire too often, as rumour has it that's the place where these people tend to converge.



As Scarshield Legion is a part of a very small Battleground group, you may experience a slightly longer wait time around certain times of the day, but there have been fewer and fewer complaints about this from realm inhabitants, marking it as either a less important problem or one that has gotten better over time. Just be prepared that it might take a bit longer. Scarshield Legion's battlegroup(Ruin) is about to be merged however with the German battlegroup Glutsturm, which is larger than Ruin. What effect this will have on wait times and in-Battlegroup chat channels remains to be seen.

The Alliance side is often outnumbered and sadly has a tendency to lose, Scarshield Legion is not the most viable Pvp realm for the tiny alliance population.


In the 2v2 arena, due to the small battlegroup and problems with match-making you're very likely to come across teams much higher and much better equipped than you.


Scarshield Legion have a few guilds that progress on a steady pace, the three foremost "End-Game" progressors being Completely Different (Horde), Aftermath (Horde) and Menace (Alliance). Quite a lot of the RP guilds have also lately jumped on the PvE "End-Game" bandwagon, as the 10 man raids allows for smaller guilds to raid as well. Some have formed coalitions with other RP guilds to tackle the bigger raids in the future as well. Notable guilds for 25 Man progression include Hellfire, Echoes of Lordareon, Northrend Exposure, Avatars of Torment, The Destruction of Souls, Soulforge, Lost, Unfinished Sympathy, Conscience and The Exiles.

Check the 25 man PvE progression thread and 10 man PvE progression thread on the realm forums for more information.
