Thaurissan was opened November 16, 2006 at approximately 3:00am PST and has become part of the Bloodlust Battlegroup. It was created initially for free character transfers from the other Oceanic PvP realms Frostmourne and Jubei'Thos. As the server increased in size the Horde to Alliance ratio began to spiral out of control, with the Horde population significantly outnumbering the Alliance. On April 21, 2008 Blizzard opened up a new Oceanic realm, Dreadmaul. When it was opened, free character transfers were allowed from other Oceanic PVP realms. Due to the Horde to Alliance imbalance most of the Alliance left Thaurissan for Dreadmaul. This resulted in a huge Horde to Alliance population imbalance with only one major Alliance guild (Ninja Assassin Sushi) choosing to remain on the server.

From June 12, 2008 to June 19, 2008 Blizzard initiated free Alliance PVE to PVP transfers to Thaurissan. Alliance from the Oceanic PvE realms Nagrand, Aman'Thul and Khaz'goroth were eligible for free transfers to the Thaurissan realm. Taking advantage of the opportunity to move from PVE to PVP, a significant number of Alliance transferred to Thaurissan including several major raiding guilds. Although the Horde still outnumbered Alliance, the population became far better balanced than it had been in the past. Despite this attempt by Blizzard to rectify the population problem, many of the Alliance transfers left for other PvP realms when they were able to transfer again and the ratio has since begun to revert to a Horde dominated state. Currently the disparity is considerable with only small amounts of Alliance players remaining. The exact ratio of Horde to Alliance is unknown, though it can be placed around 10 to 1.

In Warcraft lore Thaurissan was the ruler of the dark iron dwarves. In game, the ruined city of Thaurissan can be found in the Burning Steppes.

Battleground and Heroic Dungeon Queue Times

Queue times for Random Battlegrounds on Thaurissan have recently changed as a result of it being linked with 3 other Battlegroups: Whirlwind, Emberstorm and Vengeance. Presently this means queue times for both factions are equal to around 12 minutes each. According to Blizzard the queuing system isn't properly implemented and will be fixed shortly before Cataclysm is released.

Level 80 Battleground AllianceAlliance HordeHorde
Battleground 12 minutes 12 minutes

Queue times for Heroic Dungeons are about equal for both factions taking approximately 9 minutes for DPS to get a group. Tanks and Healers will obviously have queues of less than a minute.
