WOW classic server (Private)

Does anyone know what the best classic WOW server is now.  One that is populated, stable, and safe.

“It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”

--John Ruskin

    Pretty much a waste of time to begin playing on Private Servers now, when Classic is coming in like Summer.

    Might as well just wait for the real thing.

    I know my mileage may very, that is why I posed the question.

    Thanks, but I kind of have the desire to play now, so I don't really want to wait to an undisclosed date for something that is readily available right now.

    Sorry, safe meant not likely to be exploited (PC exploit) by the people running the server.

    If wasting time to do it all over again in the Summer is your thing, be my guest.

    I've never been one to stop someone from making a bad decision. Ultimately the choice is yours, even if it is a poor one.

    You can always tell the children from the adults.  Children have all the answers, and think they know what is best in all situations.  Quick to judge and slow question if what they are stating is true. 

    Please go away.  Your lack of useful information and presumptions attitude is not desired.

    For as long as that lasts. I have a bad feeling wow classic will become one of the victims in Activ/Blizz's trimming the fat campaign.

Is that not correct? Then I shall simply declare you dead. In all of your dealings with me, you'll do me the courtesy to conduct yourself as a dead man. I have submitted to your notions of honor long enough. You will now submit to mine."

    No need to be rude. As others have stated none are really safe. They all of measures to get your info and most of them do indeed have there own pay 2 win elements. The only good died when Blizzard decided to kill it. Now your question has been answered

    If you want a Classic Pvt server, just wait for the official one. Otherwise, go for Warmane(previously known as Molten WoW).

    No problem. That's how I roll. Direct and factual. I could weave other aspects in, but the factual answer comes first.

    Also, there were the likes of Feenix and Nost, but I can't vouch for them, so I just say it's better to just wait for WoW:Classic.

    Another option is Turtle WoW. The population is likely smaller than what you are looking for, but sticks pretty close to Vanilla at least by their claim. Having not personally played it I couldn't say from personal observation.

    It is self-described as a RP/PvE server, so if PvP is your main focus you may not enjoy it all that much. If you do enjoy PvE and questing, you can optionally play a Hardcore Mode that slows the rate of some experience gains so you are less prone to out-level areas with many quests undone.

    Anyway, just another possibility to consider.
