Lightninghoof NA US

Lightninghoof is a connected roleplaying realm in the North American region for retail World of Warcraft. This server is connected to Maelstrom, Ravenholdt, The Venture Co, and Twisting Nether. This server group contains all of the former RP-PvP servers in North America with the exception of Emerald Dream.

An important thing to remember when looking at connected realms is that the Approximate Population data, Majority Faction, and Faction Split are for all of the realms in the connected realm group. In essence, connected realms function as one large realm. Because of this, it is a more accurate representation of the population levels you will experience to show the data for the connected realm group.

When looking at RP realms, the Faction Split and Approximate Population data — which are based on how many max level characters have participated in M+ or Raiding within the current season on a given realm — isn’t really a good indicator of the actual activity level of the server. RP servers are intended for role-playing, and many players have characters on these realms for that purpose that they aren’t necessarily using to push current endgame content.
