We do not have a date for the following realm connections, but will update this post when we do.
  • Drenden and Arathor
  • Nagrand and Caelestrasz
  • Blackwater Raiders and Shadow Council

Postponed Until a Future Time
  • Alterac Mountains and Balnazzar/Gorgonnash/The Forgotten Coast/Warsong
  • Elune and Gilneas
  • Sisters of Elune and Cenarion Circle

We'll provide an update at a later point in time.

* 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.

Found an error

Ghostlands + Kael'thas is listed for March 6th connection and also as not having a date yet

I fixed it. Thanks!

So wait, are Eredar and Gorefiend going to be merged too?


Yes, sorry. I added it into the other connection too to show they're all being connected.

The listing has been updated and also accounts for the realm connections that were recently postponed.

The connections have been updated. Drak'thul and Skywall were rescheduled to 3/13. Should there be any more updates before then, we'll update this thread and the blog post.

It's worth noting that when there are delays, it's generally just due to additional database work that needs to occur to make it a smooth connection.
