A planned connection between Thunderlord, Azgalor, Azshara and Destromath has been postponed, as has the promised realm connection of Scarlet Crusade and Feathermoon.

  • Alexstrasza and Terokkar
  • Cenarion Circle and Sisters of Elune
  • Exodar and Medivh

At this time all other realms have been connected to another save for a small handful. Blizzard will provide more details on these connections at a later date when they are ready for the merger.
