Recommended realms
Normal/PvE: Saurfang
PvP: Karazhan, Spinebreaker, Xavius
RP: Darkmoon Faire
RP PvP: Scarshield Legion

Saurfang (normal/PvE), Battlegroup Misery, opened January 31 as a fresh realm (no migration to the realm for 90 days).

Free Character Migration (FCM)
Please note that any migration may be closed at any time should a destination realm's population rise too high.

To improve the faction ratio on Magtheridon, the following migrations are available from February 11th to 17th:

Horde only: Magtheridon --> Haomarush, Tarren Mill, Trollbane, Zenedar, Silvermoon (PvE)
Alliance only: Aerie Peak, Aggramar, Arathor, Azjol-Nerub, Dragonblight, Ghostlands, Hellscream, Khadgar, Kilrogg, Lightbringer, Nagrand, Silvermoon, Stormrage, Terenas, Thunderhorn, Turalyon --> Magtheridon (PvP)

No other FCM will be open this week for English realms. We decided to give it a short break to let the populations settle a little before considering additional migration.

Paid Character Transfers (PCT)
Chamber of Aspects is available as a destination despite not being 90 days old. This because it was opened as a migration realm.

All other English realms follow the regular PCT rules, found here:

Ahn’Qiraj Gates Open on All New Realms (new policy 06/02/2009)
Going forward, the gates of Ahn’Qiraj will start out open on all new realms that are created. While we recognize that this is a unique event, we feel that the complexity of this event can cause various issues that negatively impacts a player’s game play experience. By automatically opening the gates and allowing immediate access to the Ahn’Qiraj instances, we would like to promote the higher level content that is available as well as ensure a smooth overall experience for players on these new realms.

Q u o t e:
Please, remove the "Recommended" flag from the RP and the RP-PvP realm. We are not waiting for OOCers.

As long as each realm type has at least one Recommended realm, those looking for non-RP realms will get their preferred type suggested. :-)

Q u o t e:
Why is the Migration to Lightbringer only Alliance ONLY

There is no migration to Lightbringer. The migration is from Lightbringer to Magtheridon.
