Medivh is an original release, PvE server in the eastern standard timezone, Medivh has been one of the more notable servers for its guilds' progression through raid instances and world events.

Server History Edit

Overview Edit

Upon the original release of the game, the horde guild <Ascent> claimed the world first kill of Ragnaros, the final boss in Molten Core. Later with the introduction of Blackwing Lair, the Alliance guild <Fury> was the first in the world to down four of the seven bosses in the instance -- Broodlord Lashlayer, Firemaw, Ebonroc, and Flamegor.

Gates of Ahn'Qiraj Event Edit

With the release of Patch 1.9, the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj Medivh quickly organized its forces and succeeded in being the first server in the world to complete the world event and open the gates. This was done by massive cross-faction co-operation initiated by <Ascent> and joined by the vast majority of the high end scene on the server. Due to the significant numerical differences between horde and alliance (3-4 alliance per 1 horde) <Ascent> agreed to let <Fury> finish the scepter. With a portion of alliance focusing on the scepter, the progress between the two factions was equalized significantly. Even with this, it became obvious that alliance would finish significantly ahead of horde unless something was done. The solution was to funnel materials from alliance to horde, with the horde side funnel end points all being in <Ascent> and alliance side end points being in <Fury>, <The Transcendent>, <Heroic Few> and some other alliance guilds.

The leader of <Fury>, a dwarf warrior named Kalahad, was the bearer of the Scepter of the Shifting Sands who officially unlocked the gate. During this period, the server population was swelled by a flood of low level alternate characters created by players from other servers for various reasons -- including to get to Silithus to be able to view the gate opening, and to attempt to force Medivh to the population max so that the regular members of the server would be unable to log in to help with the war effort. In an attempt to reduce the number of characters in Kalimdor, and specifically Silithus before the gate was opened, the high end guilds coordinated to raid all the major locations in the hopes of drawing people to defend them. However, despite their efforts, and Blizzard's attempt to reinforce the server hardware, the server crashed several times before and after the gate was opened. Several players present when Kalahad rang the Scarab Gong reported that the world server crashed at the very moment the gong was struck.

Upon the opening of the gates, Medivh's endgame raiding guilds led the way into the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj where <Fury> claimed the world first kills of The Prophet Skeram, Vem, Fankriss the Unyielding, and Princess Huhuran. <Ascent> claimed Lord Kri, but got stalled at Sartura who was tuned horribly at this point (<Fury> simply jumped over her). Unfortunately the original explorers of the zone were rewarded with numerous revamps and changes in the encounters, which made the early experiences nearly useless. These problems materialized most of all with C'Thun, which <Fury> would probably have killed first had it not needed so significant changes to be killable.

Overpopulation Edit

The server population has remained high ever since the Ahn'Qiraj event, and the server had still had the original release hardware. As a result, many guilds progressing through Molten Core, Blackwing Lair, Ahn'Qiraj, and now Naxxramas have been severely hindered by recurrent lag spikes and high latency.

As a result, with the introduction of cross-server transfers, two leading Horde guilds, <Ascent> and <Vindication>, transferred off the server. Almost immediately after they transferred off the server, the server hardware was updated.

Feud with Mannoroth Edit

During the race for Ahn'Qiraj, a rivalry was ignited with the Mannoroth server, the first PvP server and second overall to complete the event. The race to complete the war effort was neck-and-neck for some time. In an effort to gain an advantage for their home server, players from Medivh and Mannoroth created alts on the opposing server to increase lag and queue times. Players also trolled the realm forums of the opposing server, trading insults like "carebear" and "Mannorofl".

Though Medivh emerged victorious, some Mannoroth players still claim they were the first "legitimate" server to complete the event, as Medivh's PvE mechanics prevented cross-faction interference and made organization between Horde and Alliance a natural course of action. By contrast, Mannoroth's war effort was hindered throughout the event by fierce competition between Horde and Alliance Scepter quest raids. Ganking in Silithus ignited a no-holds-barred war between the factions, causing constant server crashes due to zone overpopulation and ending in a battle at the Scarab Gong.

Most Medivh players believe Medivh to be the rightful victor and take pride in the cooperation and organization demonstrated on their server. Medivh and Exodar are now linked servers.
