Many of our characters may be lying face down in the snow, beer mug still in hand, at 3am on a Wednesday morning -- but that's not going to stop the weekly maintenance. Normal scheduled maintenance for most realms means an outage between 3am and 11am, Paris time (CEST).

As well as this regular maintenance two English Battlegroups (Reckoning and Ruin) will be receiving optimizations to their instance capacity. This will mean an extended outage on Wednesday until 5pm CEST and also a further outage between 3am and 7am on Thursday. I'm sure players on these servers will be glad to finally join those who have already received this optimisation to help resolve the Door Boss issue. Full list of realms impacted after the break.


Realms being optimized:

Ahn'Qiraj
Azuremyst
Blade's Edge
Bronzebeard
Chromaggus
Dentarg
Drak'thul
Emeriss
Executus
Hakkar
Khadgar
Kul Tiras
Mazrigos
Moonglade
Scarshield Legion
Steamwheedle Cartel
Talnivarr
Terokkar
Trollbane
Xavius
