Blizzard has announced the next round of realm connections scheduled for September 2nd and September 3rd. The September 2nd connections will be linking Oceanic realms. This is the first time in 2020 that Blizzard is linking non-US realms in the North American region.
Scheduled Ream Connections for September 2nd
The following Oceanic realms will be connected on September 2nd at 3AM AEST.
- Dreadmaul and Thaurissan will be connected to Frostmourne
This connection has been a controversial one on the forums, as Dreadmaul and Thaurissan are two small, Horde-majority Oceanic realms being connected to the largest Alliance Oceanic realm. There is the chance that with the feedback from players, Blizzard might reconsider the connection as they did with the Hyjal to Proudmoore connection a few weeks back.
Scheduled Realm Connections for September 3rd
The rest of the realms scheduled to be connected this week are US realms. The connections will take place during the Thursday, September 3rd maintenance from 7AM PDT to 3PM PDT.
- Cenarion Circle and Sisters of Elune will be connected to Blackwater Raiders and Shadow Council
- Muradin and Nordrassil will be connected to Azjol-Nerub, Blackrock, and Khaz Modan
- Gnomeregan and Moonrunner will be connected to Grizzly Hills, Lothar, Malfurion, and Trollbane
- Eredar, Gorefiend, Spinebreaker, and Wildhammer will be connected to Hellscream and Zangarmarsh
- Blade’s Edge and Thunderhorn will be connected to Agamaggan, Archimonde, Burning Legion, Kargath, Norgannon, and The Underbog
Rescheduled Realm Connections for September 3rd
This will be the 3rd attempt at this connection, which will be happening during the September 3rd scheduled maintenance along with the other realm connections scheduled for that day. Due to technical difficulties, it has been rescheduled twice. Hopefully, the third time’s the charm!
- Andorhall, Scilla, Ursin, and Zuluhed will be connected to Eonar and Velen
During a scheduled maintenance period planned for 3:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. AEST on Wednesday, September 2 (10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. PDT on Tuesday, September 1), the following realm connection will be made:
- The Dreadmaul and Thaurissan realms will join the Frostmourne realm.
During a scheduled maintenance period planned for 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. PDT on Thursday, September 3, the following realm connections will be made:
