Blizzard plans to connect more World of Warcraft realms

With World of Warcraft's 5.4 patch this past September, developer Blizzard Entertainment began linking servers through a feature called Connected Realms, and the studio laid out future plans today for connecting additional realms.

Blizzard will make its next batch of connections Monday, Dec. 23, during a scheduled maintenance period that is expected to last about five hours starting at 9 a.m. ET. Here's the list of realms to be linked:

  • Anetheron and Magtherdion/Ysondre
  • Crushridge and Anub'arak/Chromaggus/Garithos/Nathrezim/Smolderthorn
  • Darrowmere and Windrunner
  • Demonsoul and Coilfang, Dark Iron, and Dalvengyr
  • Draka and Suramar
  • Velen and Eonar

Another group of realms will be connected during a maintenance window beginning at 9 a.m. ET on Friday, Jan. 3:

  • Akama and Dragonmaw
  • Executus and Kalecgos
  • Galakrond and Blackhand
  • Shandris and Bronzebeard
  • The Forgotten Coast and Balnazzar, Gorgonash and Warsong
  • Undermine and Anvilmar

Blizzard also included another list of realms in its blog post, saying that they'll be connected at some undetermined point in the future:

  • Bladefist and Kul Tiras
  • Nazgrel and Vek'nilash/Nesingwary
  • Nazjatar and Mannoroth/Blood Furnace
  • Norgannon and Kargath
  • Stormscale and Firetree/Rivendare/Drak'Tharon/Malorne/Spirestone
  • Uldaman and Ravencrest
