Reckoning (US) »
Bonechewer is a PvP server having game time consistent with the pacific time zone. Initially, it was originally a low population server. When the first ever transfers from Warsong to Bonechewer opened up in early 2005, the server gradually grew from a low population server to a listed medium-to-high population server.
In PvE progression, Bonechewer is predominantly Alliance-sided. When purchasable realm-to-realm transfers opened, many horde individuals transferred off, along with several high-profile alliance guilds intact, including Blacklisted and Eye Candy. Bonechewer at that time was plagued with a long history of server instability and long queue times.
In PvP, Bonechewer is a part of Battlegroup 1.
Bonechewer has the most number of Filipinos in WoW US (other realm with many Filipinos is Coilfang).
This list represents participants of the old honor system who met rank 14.

Then after a time delay, Blacklisted, Escaper, and other organized guilds would attack SW and IF. There was an estimated of about 2x40=80 to 3x40=120 Horde participants.thread

- Fight Nights... This used to be a daily community held PvP event on Bonechewer. "Some of the cross-faction goodness include fight nights where players from both sides get together to have one on one or team fights. A few times in the past, players have tried to crash the event and get some cheap kills, but those people quickly become pariahs in the community. What can I say, I like it here. :)" quote from cento.
- VM kills Thrall. No creditable sources, no screenshots or forum post, but generally accepted since they have tried numerous times. Also they have said to killed 3+ faction leaders. CryHavoc (Horde) is said to have done the same. Maybe legends? 1a definition of legend
- PUG Ironforge raid. Melonhorn's Raid Q1 '05. Estimated of about 3x40=120 Horde participants, including tag-alongs. The raid was planned like this. A group of warlocks would descent to a secret room adjacent to where the dwarf king stood proud. These warlocks would start summoning 40 people total to this secret location. A few warlocks were summoned first, then more warlocks. After 40 people have arrived, the signal was given to an outside attack group to setup a decoy attack at the front line. Then the signal was made to attack the king. The king spawns a grip of guards; Because this raid was so massive, Bonechewer gliched and crashed literally. There was a very long-long pause of all the player models before the entire server restarted.
- Death of Cairne Bloodhoof - Credits to Lux Lucis + tag-alongs. Kesulos claims to have solo pulled him in his transfer guild app found here with two attempts to bring down. From the looks of it, they have trailed the Tauren chief from TB to the Theramore docks which is longs way of where he should be sitting. imageimageimageoriginal thread source titled labeled Blacklisted's Raid on UC started 7/3/06. thx Kesulos. In the thread, Samoora claims death "IF King and Stormwind dude" with Tribo (pre-TF Tempestus Fury days) and Nowi "stormwind protector and Darnassus boss" and "druid" boss and "Tyrande". Cen says " Alpha Company and a cpl of more guilds which I dont remember in a 40 man raid, got Sylvanas like long long time ago"...", killed her, server crashed and rolled back...lost all the HKs on that one.
