World PvP on a PvE server

7 posts in this topic

I'm a bit new to WoW and as such I'm little confused about the server differences. How does World PvP function on a PvE server as compared to a PvP server? I understand that on a PvP server players on the opposing faction can attack you whenever they wish in a contested area but how does it work on PvE servers? Can you flag yourself for PvP on a PvE server if you wish to participate in World PvP?

Thank you for the response, Mutterkorn. How does the flag work? Is there an icon next to player names when they are flagged?

Yes you can. Simply type /pvp and you are flagged.

Your name is a different colour (green) when you are flagged for PvP

And there is a small faction icon on your Unit Frame.

Edit: I am not sure how long it lasts, but i think if you turned it on manually, you have to turn it off the same way. Only difference: If you turn it off, it will take five minutes until it really turns off.

The same happens, if you turn it on by attacking a guard or a member of the opposite faction. But i think here it turns off automatically five minutes after your last hostile action.

Thank you both for the information, I greatly appreciate it!

Additionally, if you have PvP quests, they will automatically flag you until the quests are completed or dropped (with a 5 min timer before flag expires)

You will have a resident pvp flag after exiting BGs for 5 minutes

One other thing, if it's Red, it's Dead

      Hi, I used AksMrRobot to sim my char and as I thought I'm underperforming for my ilvl according to mrRobot I should do around 300k dps with my ilvl 869 gear but I'm sitting on 200k-240k-ish I do know that I don't have any enchants on my gear which is a dps loss but I think the enchats will give me maybe only 10k which means there still 50k left which I'm missing.
      I mainly do Mythic+ dungeons but from time to time I do the raids or at least the Emerals Nightmare
      My latest log is available through this link warcraftlogs
      here is my armory link 
      I think the main issue is my bad momentum usage but maybe I'm wrong. 
      I'm looking forward to your feedback

      Hello Community,
      I am an experienced Mage player since BC, however I am not satisfied with my mage Damage as it is at the moment:

      Would you point out possible Improvements or grave mistakes visible in the logs?

      Thank you very much!

      Hello, so I started playing DK at the launch of legion, and have enjoyed it so far. I was initially unholy but then changed to frost recently, and am enjoying both specs except for one thing, namely my performance. So there are three frost DK's in my raid and lately the other two are always towards the top of the meter while I'm towards the bottom. There is no large gear difference (I think they both have a couple ilvls on me, but I have the legendary belt), so I was wondering what I was doing wrong. Upon looking at logs I found they both casted significantly more spells than me on all fronts (FS, obliterate, etc.). I also noticed that I need to keep icy talons up more, but can someone tell me why I'm casting so many fewer spells than them (there is no large haste difference, the armory has us all at 30something% haste, even though one of them (Hungerghost) and I only have 20something, and I'm sure the same applies to the other DK), or if there is some other problem, then what is it and how can I fix it? Thanks.

      Crowfall is like RTS meets EVE Online meets Minecraft...if that made any sense? Before massive battles (hundreds of players), building structures and economy make it into the game, it currently looks rather like MOBA than MMO; Also, you can build your own kingdom by placing valleys, mountains...at will:

      Another strange thing is, frequent changes of sex/class/race are likely - account and progression are tied to crow-spirit, not the body/avatar. Now, alpha access is expensive but open beta (free tests) is scheduled for "summer 2017", requiring only registration on the site. Here are some early player made videos, starting with TheLazyPeon's recent preview:
       
       
       
      PS If my incomprehensible intro didn't make any sense, IGN Wiki maybe will.
