Blizzard EU Community Manager Takralus has updated the Connected Realms info with the mixed successes of the last set of connections, as well as informing the EU community of the next gaggle of realms being grouped together. For whatever reason, the connection of Bloodfeather with Kor'gall/Burning Steppes/Executus has been delayed until a later date, but the new connections coming in are as follows:
- (PvP) Balnazzar and Shattered Halls/Ahn'Qiraj/Trollbane/Talnivarr/Chromaggus/
- (RP PvP) Ravenholdt and Scarshield Legion/The Venture Co/Sporeggar
- (PvE) Shattrath and Garrosh/Nozdormu
Takralus' post has a good Q&A in which she clarifies that all low and some medium-population realms will be connected in order to ensure that all realms have a healthy population when they're done. As she also mentions, the order in which realms are connected depends on several technical factors, so don't panic if, for whatever reason, your realms aren't appearing on the list. All in good time.
What's more, there are several Free Character Migrations in place until January 21:
- Draenor and Silvermoon (PvE) to Magtheridon, Wildhammer and Kilrogg.
- Kazzak, Outland, Ragnaros, Stormscale, Sylvanas and Twisting Nether (all PvP) to The Maelstrom and Grim Batol.
All of these FCMs are open to both factions.
