This article is an information page for the Auchindoun realm (server)

The contents herein are entirely player made and in no way represent official World of Warcraft history or occurrences which are accurate for all realms. The information and events listed are of an independent nature and applied for roleplaying, fictional, speculative, or opinions from a limited playerbase only.

The North American Auchindoun server came online with the Burning Crusade on January 16, 2007 at 12:01 AM EST.[1] It is a PvP server in the EST timezone. The server population ratio of Alliance to Horde is slightly unbalanced at 85 at about 1:1.5 overall. The vast majority of Horde being comprised of blood elves, which account for more than half the entire server. Because of its low population, Auchindoun is free of server queues. Battleground queues for Horde, however, are another story and can be very long.

Black Temple cleared by Reckless Ambition 12/04/07, making it the 2nd most progressed in PvE (Retaliation Battlegroup)

Auchindoun was also home of the "Outlandish Podcast" and its guild. This podcast contained new contents being released consistently on a weekly basis. The guild has since disbanded, but the podcast is still active and contains news, commentary, wacky commercials for WoW addons and parodies of songs with an Outlandish twist.

On a whole, Auchindoun is rather notorious, with both factions' Trade chats being compared to /b/ by some, although it has toned down some. Conversations typically arise in Trade chat, oftentimes regarding sensitive subjects. Players from other realms that interject and voice their opinions on the matter are usually greeted by a sarcastic "Welcome to Auchindoun." There is also a large amount of realm pride, especially among the Horde.

The troll hunter Kripparrian [1] of the guild <Synergos> (recently transferred to Ysondre - as of Feb 2009) was the first player to reach Level 80 approximately 49 hours after the release of the WotLK expansion on November 13, 2008.

PvP on Auchindoun (Pre-Connected Realms)

Although the faction ratio on the server was imbalanced and favored the Horde there was a very active PvP scene to be found on Auchindoun. The Alliance on this server often enjoy fast queues in battlegrounds while the Horde wait can be very long depending on the player's level. Horde almost always controlled all world PvP objectives by default with the exception of the Terokkar towers. This is due to the towers being held for a set amount of time after capture by default. Both factions traded off holding Tol Barad with neither side having an edge over the other most of the time.

World PvP was almost nonexistent on Auchindoun, but there were several players within both factions that try to make trouble for the opposing side whenever possible. This often included individuals or groups camping areas where enemy players duel or congregate in an attempt to score an easy kill. Since the player base on this server was very low, players who engaged in this type of behavior often gained a reputation and were targeted specifically in world or battleground PvP encounters.
