Connected Realms – Updated 8/21

(Locked)

Community Manager
We will be connecting the realms listed below on Thursday, August 21 during a scheduled maintenance beginning at 5 a.m. PDT through approximately 1:00 p.m. PDT. Once maintenance is finished, these realm connections will be complete.
  • Lightninghoof and Maelstrom, The Venture Co
  • Shattered Hand and Coilfang, Dark Iron, Dalvengyr, and Demon Soul
  • Sisters of Elune and Cenarion Circle


* Plans for these connections may change at any time, but we’ll provide additional updates on specific dates for future connections here as we can. Please note that as a part of the connection process realm times may change to match each other.
For more information on Connected Realms, please read the preview blog post here.

FAQ

Q. My realm needs connecting, why isn’t it listed?
A. The connections listed are the phases we’ve currently finalized and have planned connection dates or estimates available for. Additional connections are possible, but they just haven’t reached that stage yet. We’ll be updating the realm connection list as phases complete and new phases are planned.

Q. When will my realm be connected?
A. We'll update this thread with the latest information on currently planned phases.

Q. My realm has a lower population than those on the list, why isn’t mine being connected first?
A. Realm connections are based on a number of factors including population, faction balance, the realm’s physical location in the world compared to other realms it may be connected to, among others. It’s also worth noting that websites which attempt to track population, while helpful in many ways, are estimates based on public data which may not provide the clearest picture of actual population.

Same except Staghelm :( Though I'm also afraid after it does get its inevitable merge I'll miss the quietness of my original home (yes I still play alts there).

Good lord! Connect the RP-PvP realms. I don't understand this nonsense; we only have 6 realms to connect, and one realm, Emerald Dream, is High/Full Population. What's the holdup? Outside of Emerald Dream, the RP-PvP realms are either dead or dying.

According to the blog post, the Ghostlands/Kael'thas connection is on March 6th.
Dreadmaul and Thaurissan is what should be in the no date spot.

What's wrong with Staghelm? It only says medium then goes to low due to bots and gold sellers. The server is dead :(...

Did you have some reason to think I don't like you? AFAIK, I've never posted anything that would give you that impression; in fact, the opposite.

So Maelstrom server....

We've been low pop all of Mists of Pandaria. The server is completely dead. I moved to Wyrmrest Accord as a result, but I have several friends there.

We've heard nothing on connected realms for them, can you PLEASE provide an update for us? All RP-PVP servers are being completely ignored thus far for realm connections. I don't understand why this is happening but so many of my friends have quit as a result of the inaction :(.

Please, send help.
