my main server is Cannith where I have 11 toons from level 1-20. I just recently made a toon on Wayfinder to check out the "german" community there (I'm german). I made a sorcerer ("Nuklear") since I thought that should be easy and nice to level. I tried to get an elite streak going, so I decided to quickly do the Korthos quests on elite.
First thing I realized: Oh, I don't have Veteran Status, so I have to start at level 1. And really, burning hands on level 1 is not the most powerful spell. Especially when you don't have any means of enhancing its power (no potency, no combustion, no inferno clicky). Since I didn't even have a single coin, I couldn't even get a hireling to heal me...
So I failed in my try to solo the level 1 quests on elite. I never had these problems on my main server, because I have twink gear for all the levels and enough money to buy any potion/hireling/weapon I need. But without money this is not an option.
Furthermore, I noticed that the AH is almost empty, especially for gear I usually use a lot on casters - like superior spell enhancement clickys, False life items, Major Lore items and so on. I couldn't even find a robe of heavy fortification yet.
So almost all of my gear is found or I got it as quest rewards. Can you imagine how happy I was when I finally pulled a Superior Inferno II mace from a quest? Finally a way to boost my Scorch and Scorching Ray damage! On my home server I have several clickys lying around, and if I need anything else, I just buy it at the AH - these things are in abundance on Cannith, and they are not even expensive...
So in my experience, leveling a first time toon is a bigger challenge on wayfinder than on any other server where you can at least buy the needed items from the AH. Furthermore, I noticed how much the ship buffs from a level 70 guild (including large guild crystals) made the low level content even easier (I actually died from Kobold Shamans lighning bolts). And its even harder if you try to keep an elite streak up, since you usually have to solo the elite quests, (lfms fill very slowly once you left harbor/marketplace or if you are doing P2P content). I already had several occasions, where I actually had to release and reenter the quest, to get my quest completion.
Nevertheless, it is an interesting experience - it has a kind of "new and fresh" feeling attached to it.
So what I'm saying is: If you are bored of the game at your home server, try to level a fresh toon on Wayfinder while keeping an elite streak going - this is a real challenge!
