    For PvP, probably Pacific. But in Luna bank, Napa always looks busier to me.

    For PvM, Napa probably wins due to less crowding = more mobs up (but that's only a plus if you bring a solo-capable template or small party with you).

    Hrm... I've always thought of Sonoma as having fewer players than Napa Valley... but I could be wrong. Pacific is definitely the more popular out of all three though.
  5. Maybe you could make a temporary character on each shard and just hand out at the bank for a while. Maybe that way you can get a better idea of what they are like. I have heard a few people say "wow people on Napa are really nice!" for the most part I tend to agree with that. Less people but more overall cooperation. You could talk to people and find out what’s popular and what’s not. For instance, Doom is often times vacant on Napa so if you love to do that then this may not be the right shard unless you join up with the right group of people.
