By now, several US realms have been successfully connected with Blizzard's new Connected Realms feature. In case you've been out of the loop, Blizzard released an update in regards to the new feature, which seamlessly connects two realms so that they'll behave as one. That means players on realms that are connected can join the same guilds, use one Auction House, and run raids and dungeons with each other -- a pretty big bonus for realms that have been suffering from lower populations. The list of successfully connected realms is as follows:It's a sizeable list -- but if your realm wasn't on the list, not to worry. Blizzard is revving up for more realm connections, and soon. Two new batches of realm connections are on the way, and the first batch of connections will be taking place on Monday, October 28.
- Auchindoun and Laughing Skull
- Black Dragonflight and Skullcrusher
- Aegwynn and Gurubashi
- Balnazzar and Warsong
- Burning Blade and Onyxia
- Chromaggus and Garithos
- Dalvengyr and Dark Iron
- Dethecus and Detheroc
- Dunemaul, Maiev, Boulderfist and Bloodscalp
- Hakkar and Aegwynn
- Rivendare and Firetree
Maiev, Dunemaul, Bloodscalp and Boulderfist can expect a new addition to the quad of realms with the connection of Stonemaul. In addition, there are other connections that will be seeing the introduction of another new realm or two. For players on realms in the first batch listed, expect some downtime on Monday, and a host of new faces when the servers go live. As for the second batch, while there isn't a date set yet for the connections, Blizzard will provide that information once it becomes available.
