I live in Australia but when im on is also when American are on due to I work in afternoon in aus so I want 1 where it has consistently have a lot of people in the server so I can do group quest

I think more people should ask, but I think what I did (the second time around ) is to find a good guild first. Some are open to new players, I moved to G-land and have been happy there. But find a guild maybe that suits your preferred play style and the join their server.

I would say Gallanda, ... got some aussies out over here, they are not in my play time (Europe) regularly but I do see them around late at night, early morning

In personal experience I find that at the time of day when Aussies and New Zealanders are playing there is a pretty low server pop on literally every server.

Sarlona has a large Chinese population playing in the mornings GMT {Australian Prime Time}.

Argo seems to have the largest actual Antipodean population but we're talking about the difference between 25 on Sarlona, Orien, Thelanis, G-Land, Cannith or Khyber and 40 on Argo! {Oh and maybe 1 on Wayfinder!}.

Don't choose to start with, spend the first coupla days rolling a toon on each and seeing what the activity levels are during your average playtimes. A little time invested at the beginning would be well spent by finding the most optimal situation for your particular needs and save frustration down the road.

I play normally when Americans are on a lot more due to my afternoon shifts and I want to find a high population server and active guild
And I just wanna narrow down what servers to pick from

Highest Pop. Server is Sarlona {as it holds the Default} - This holds quadruple for low level play as at this time in DDO's life Vets outnumber newbies on the other servers by a factor of 100!


Highest Pop. Servers historically - Independant of which actually holds the default {though obviously the current default quickly outstrips the others} and which tend to hold second, 3rd and 4th place on the list are:
Khyber {Historically the highest Pop Server but expect DRAMA!}
Thelanis {Currently hurting}
Ghallanda {Largest European Pop. so probably not the best choice if you play at East Coast US times.}

When Sarlona finally loses the default {which should by rights be pretty soon as it's held it for a while now} expect Argo to be next in line for the Default {Or Thelanis}.

This is good advice.

Doing this will also allow you to get a bunch of first-time favour rewards on all servers, which you can invest in adventure packs down the road.

Choose a different server each day, then you can roll different chars and get the favor rewards until you figure out which server makes you happiest (or least frustrated.)

I would say Galahada.

Also not Kyber. That server is lagging like crazy.

TT's advice is solid. I always forget that.

Also I've played on all the servers. Sadly I would avoid Kyber, just too much lag there for some reason. Sarlona and G-Land will have the most LFMs G-Land has the largest population of Aussies IMO. There are some on all servers, but seem to be more on G-Land based on my play times (PST). Thelanis has allot of nice people, but not as many LFMs. Wayfinder is good for the solo challange.
