Age of Conan / PVP or PVE server?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just pre-ordered a copy of the game and can't decide on the type of server I should join. (PVP or PVE?)

When I was playing WoW (warlock)... I spent 85% of the game play in battleground grinding honors. Not much of a fan for 40 men raid.

2 years later I start playing in Vanguard. I rolled on a FFA PVP server since I love PVP. The experience was not pleasant. Every city or village in the game is a ghost town. You have to be extremely careful when visting bank or auction. As there are probably 20 ppl hiding around waiting for the perfect moment... the second your screen switch to item grid view. Not to mention the social element is reduced to minimum... no one can be trusted except very few guild mates.

Don't get me wrong, I am not whining about getting jumped since I am a gnome Cleric in the game (thx to Dev, this combination is impossible to kill at the time so ppl just leave me alone ). It is just that without a safe common place for players to meet each other, the game gets boring really quickly.

I have no problem getting ganked during quest or corpse camped a few times. But I do enjoy the "social life" in origmmar. Should I go for PVP or PVE server on AoC?
