They've already opened a new realm for transfers, but Bornakk just let us know that a brand new US realm will be open for character creation tomorrow morning (Pacific time). I assume he specified Pacific time so they're not held to opening before noon Eastern, which would be pretty early for those west-coast dwellers. The vitals on the new realm:

  • Name: Grizzly Hills
  • Type: PvE (normal)
  • Time Zone: Pacific Eastern
  • Battlegroup: Retaliation
  • AQ gates closed, closed to transfers for 3 months.

I have to say, though, it would take quite a reroll locust to start over from scratch tomorrow, when the rest of us are leveling Death Knights or enjoying Northrend. Who's going to go check it out?
