A friend of my husband suggested trying a character on a PvP server, that it's a different playing experience. So I started TyrAsKuhn on Daggerspine where some of my friends have them. So far, it's not much different. I chose a Night Elf Druid because I love playing RaSiKuhn so much. Also, if I'm going to be challenged by other characters at the drop of a hat, I need to know how to handle my character well.
It took about 1 hour to get to level 6, 1.5 hours to get to level 7, just over 2 to get to level 8 and about 3 to get to level 9 Sunday evening.
