Realm News - World of Warcraft -

World of Warcraft has lots of news, and it's all about Realms! Today, Blizzard made an exciting announcement, opening 3 brand new Realms, and there seems to be something for everyone, with one server being dedicated to PvP, one to PvE and one to RP-PvE.

The World of Warcraft team is excited to introduce the opening of three brand new realms! Cho'gall (PvP), Kael'thas (PvE), and Kirin Tor (RP-PvE) will be available to newcomers beginning their journey in Azeroth for the first time, and players who wish to start anew on a fresh new realm. All are welcome! Here is an opportunity for players to pioneer their way into untrodden territory, to shape the balance of power between the Horde and the Alliance, to make their make their mark on Azeroth!

To seek out these new realms, login into World of Warcraft and look for the "New" label in the Population column. We hope you enjoy, and see you in the game!

WoW has also announced a brand new round of Realm Transfers.

In order to ensure that World of Warcraft players enjoy an optimal gaming experience during peak hours, we're opening realm-to-realm character transfers for the realms listed below. These transfers will help bring the overall concurrency of these realms down to a level that not only improves performance and stability, but also alleviates queues. Please note that we constantly monitor realm populations. If other realms begin to experience long queues or other issues caused by overpopulation, we will address them accordingly.

  • Warsong to Gurubashi
  • Skullcrusher to Smolderthorn
  • Blackrock to Frostwolf

The realm transfers listed above will open on Thursday, October 20 at 3:00 AM and will be open daily from 3:00 AM to 3:00 PM until October 27. We thank you for your patience in dealing with the high population realms and wish you luck on your adventures in Azeroth!
