For the night elf organization, see Moon Guard.

Moon Guard is a role playing server. The server is one of the most populated in the game, with estimates of number of characters ranging from the high 30,000s to the low 40,000s.[1] As at August 2009, the server has an Alliance-to-Horde activity ratio of 1.1 : 1 with prime time reaching 90.9% activity. The number of people online begins to rise at 12:00 RT (RT = Realm Time), with both factions peaking at 20:00 RT on Horde and 21:00 RT for Alliance. The lowest population is at 6:00 - 7:00 RT for both. Death knights are the most active on either faction, while paladins are second most popular. Shamans are the least played class on the server, followed by warlocks and priests.[2] Its players are a part of battlegroup Reckoning. It has a good population of roleplayers. Despite the server being classified as a PvE-RP server, Moon Guard has a sizable PvP community and many RP-PvP hybrid guilds. As of May 2022, many guilds and community rp projects are organized through community created discord servers.


  • Moon Guard is known as having a highly active roleplaying community on both the horde and alliance factions. Examples of roleplaying guilds can be found below, many of which focus on the roleplay of specific races, rp-pvp, storyline rp, and more. The district known as Goldshire, however, is infamous for having the largest ERP community around. Many of those who ERP in Goldshire, or who use inappropriate language in the /say, /yell, and other public channels are roleplaying griefers or off-server alts. Moon Guard's actual roleplayers are dissatisfied with the state of Goldshire, and many have voiced their support of Blizzard's recent attempts to fix the problem. Please read Blizzard's RP Rules and Guidelinesfor further information. NOTE: Goldshire does not represent the roleplay community in its entirety. Any who attempt to claim such are either intentionally misleading you for the purpose of trolling/griefing, or have not experienced the wide array of RP opportunities this community has to offer.
  • As a whole the majority of the RP community is known for being highly organized and being able to create and sustain highly specialized RP projects such as the Stormwind Law Project (Human), the Storm House Of Nobles (Human), The Eternal Court Of Lordaeron (Forsaken), Assembly Of Three Hammers (Dwarven), Coalition Of The Horde, The Left Hand Path (Horde), Council Of Gnomeregan (Gnomes), Warcraft Conquest (D20 cross faction campaigns), and more.
  • There are several large scale RP events that are hosted annually on the Moon Guard server which attract hundreds of players from other servers such as the Tournament Of Ages, and Dance Of The Dead.
  • RP add-ons are widely used and treated as an unspoken expectation and tool to aide in roleplay. Common RP addons include but are not limited to TotalRP, Emote Splitter, and Misspelled which are able to be downloaded and installed through sites like Curse Gaming.
  • There is a wide variety of rp guilds which range in focus on lore and factions not immediately associated in lore with the Alliance or Horde such as The Argent Crusade, and Scarlet Crusade.
