PvE and PvP servers are much the same aside from one key difference. PvP servers have world PvP whilst PvE servers don't. You can still do most other PvP stuff on PvE servers though (Battlegrounds, Duels, Deathmatches and GvG).

In PvP servers there is "open world PvP", meaning after level 11 players can attack and kill each other. Or rather, by joining a PvP server you are willingly entering a world where lowbies getting stomped by OP lvl 60s, sometimes 24/7, great stuff. In PvE servers there is none of that, just fighting against mobs (and only limited PvP, in the form of duels, GvG etc). Have fun!

I dont know about other pvp servers, but i play on balder and while lvling 1 char to 60 and like 4 chars to 40+, i got maybe 1 time pked by lvl 60 for no reason. So your argument is kinda invalid. And its bullshit that you cant lvl in peace on the pvp servers. Wanna lvl there with no person around? go different higher channel! use your brain to outsmart your enemy. and the best thing about pvp server is, if your borred from slaying 100000000 mobs than you can go and start killing people on your lvl! btw i didnt have any infamy till jet, cause i never pk lowies and you guys should stop saying "OMG on pvp server all are assholes".

PVE server is a boring but peaceful place.

In PVP server, when you see red people in town, be very well prepared. Ganking happens usually in low level areas though. People in PVP server tend to be younger, more open-minded and relatively more skillful.

I'm sorry but how does avoiding the problem others are talking about make their argument invalid? Since the open world PvP is the main difference, why would I want to create a char there, if I wanted to level or play in peace? If you want peace and quiet, you go onto a PvE server, if you want 'action all the time', you go onto a PvP server. What's the point playing on a PvP server if you change channels all the time to avoid people? You've got me confused. Plus, do you happen to also inspect everyone you come across before starting a fight? How is their level any indication of their capabilities in terms of gear etc? And just because you have had a different experience (making a PvP environment feel like PvE?!) doesn't mean that everyone has, even though you have 2349945 chars.
OP asks about differences. Anything to say that's not off-topic?

I can confirm that a PvE server is usually a quiet place to play on. However, GvG can make your life a little miserable at times. For example, you're a lowbie and your guild is at war with another guild. It is known that some higher level people do go to lower level areas and pick on random players. Of course, you don't have to be in a guild, so this is avoidable. However, sometimes even L60s feel disturbed by GvG when there's Nexus. Some even don't go to Nexus while their guild is in GvG. Most of the time though, you decide IF and WHEN to combat other players - be it in the form of a duel, Battleground, Skyring.

The difference? PvP servers have open world pvp happening all the time, while PvE servers have consensual PvP combat. If you cringe on the sole prospect of getting killed by high level players in low level areas, avoid people in general and want to grind your PvE content in complete peace, you shouldn't roll onto TERA's PvP servers.

People in PVP server tend to be younger


I think that is completly opposite. Still most ppl from PvP servers come from old generations of MMOs. And oldshool MMORPGs are not that peaceful games as Tera or WoW, even on PvP server.

Because maybe some people want to PvP at lv60??? Say, go kill people farming BAMs? Kill your KOS guild without being in GvG? Unfortunately, you have to go through all that lowbie bullshit for it though.

No one cares about lowbie PvP.

I'm not criticising you. On the contrary - I respect your opinion and am glad you decided to share it. However, I don't like you trying to impose your point of view by dismissing other posters' opinions as 'invalid' and 'bullshit'.

In my previous guild, someone who initially registered on a PvP server said they grew tired of this constant 'street fighting', so he switched servers. If you like it, that's fine. Not everyone does though, for one reason or another.

Peace! :)
