Like if I am EST, and the server I am on is PST, do I get worse latency than if it was an EST server and would this affect my gameplay?

Won't really matter and just because the server is set for a certain time zone, doesn't mean it is actually in that time zone.

So if a server is in Los Angeles and I'm in NJ it won't affect my gameplay?

The time zones don't always match where the data centers are. However, the distance to the data center may affect your latency slightly, although unless you're trying to get onto a server on the other side of the world it shouldn't be too bad-- I play on an PST server from the midwest and usually have 80-120ms latency.

If you're not sure, roll up a level 1 on your intended server and play around for a bit; if it's too high, try again in a day or two, just in case it's your connection. If it's still too high, pick one in a closer data center.

I'm getting this latency:

83 ms (home)
87 ms (world)

Is that good?

No, but it's not super bad either. Should be fine unless you're trying to hardcore PvP and/or PvE.
