Yes, what Rlyan said is absolutely true. There are 2 really bad spots on PvP server, the first and worst being tortage because there is no alternative, specifically the white sands region as it's an easy place for those with no skill to keep their 24 rangers and kill all of the lowbies.
The other place is at the very end of your leveling, Keshatta, but by the time you get there you'll have reinforcements and it's still not as bad as tortage. Everyone I know in here cursed the fact that we're on a PvP server but took it back once they got out of tortage.
It takes a little extra work, but you can actually get all the way out of tortage without ever touching white sands using the destiny quests, and the non pvp zones with a very small amount of grinding here and there.
Only travel to white sands if you have a group and are 15+.
Sorry we didn't catch you sooner with that info, it's usually the first thing we tell people starting new toons over ventrillo.
