Today's extended maintenance, intended to last from 3 AM PDT until 11 AM PDT, has been extended further. As you can see from the picture on the right, the downtime has been extended until 1 PM PDT. We don't know the exact reasons for this downtime, but we were overdue for a chaotically bad maintenance day. To be honest I was sort of starting to miss them. The thrill! The excitement!
Anyway, if anything further happens with today's maintenance or we find out the reason for the further extension, we'll be sure to let you know. Keep an eye on WoW Insider, my friends!
