Feels more real and immersive.

Gonna see if I can't find me QuestHelper or whatever it was called.
I use the AddOns: Questie (for in-map quest help), Mapster (for better maps), Bagnon (for treating all bags as one giant bag), Bartender (for easier management of action bars and shortcut keys), and Vendor Price (so the tooltip shows the vendor price).

Each server is a unique namespace for player and guild names. Combining servers always causes a lot of clashes. Also, each server develops a different culture, especially when there's no cross-server interaction like in the current WoW. Mixing two small isolated communities doesn't always work out well. Plus, there's the whole "dying server" stress that inevitably happens before a server merge.

I don't know the right way to handle the rush vs die-off, but there's good arguments for any approach. I'd hope Blizzard has the smarts to do the best.
