Feel very warm to have got your welcome message! Many thanks for responding to my post so quickly! I basically have decided to go to Alterac and join the guild on that server, though I live in Beijing and the PING may not always be to my favor - the ISP of my home connection is one of dual-link (to both Unicom and Telecom) so it should be okay unless in the worst hours. And I can always spend a little money for a proxy service.
I am currently leveling my little Monk and should be able to join you guys soon.
