I'm looking for a server to transfer a couple of my lvl 75 toons over. I was told by the people on Elendilmir that this one would be the one that I would want if I were looking for a group to run end-game content (ToO, Draig, Roots, etc.) that would yield results and not wipes like the PUGS on Imladris server that I'm being reduced to join. Also I was told that this server is relatively small. So I'm just wondering if this server has good groups that does successful end-game runs and relatively small. Any feedback would nice.
To be honest, there are very few groups running ToO consistently on Gladden. And of the groups that do run it consistently, it would be very difficult to "jump in" to the groups and start running. Think very carefully before investing in a character transfer, as raiding is not as common as you think, and invites to raids are rarer still.

I'm not sure which folks on E (Elendilmir) mentioned Gladden would be a solid raiding server, but they're misinformed. Having toons on both servers, the amount of activity (both PUG and raiding kinships/alliances) is far greater on E than it is on Gladden for ToO, roots, foundry, draigoch, etc. Not only is E nearly 100% more active than Gladden in virtually all areas and all content, there's activity at all times of the day/night largely due to the oceanic population on E. If you don't care for the larger server feel that E provides, then there are better smaller server options than Gladden - Riddermark or Vilya may be an option for a mid-sized servers.

I can't speak from experience, but I always see people looking to form groups for the end game content and they fill up in a respectable amount of time. The main one I see people running is Dragoich, but there's always people in the glff running groups. They're also run by people who know what they're doing and such from what I've read/seen. Can't speak about the other servers, but you could make a new toon before you transfer anyone and monitor the glff and send tells to the people running the end game content I suppose.
