Cross Realm Zones

6 posts in this topic

Another gimmick from Blizzard? Or a smart new way to play with friends?

A link to a Q&A session about Cross Realm Zones can be found here.

I'm really unsure about this. If it makes the world feel more full then its got to be a good idea right? But then again I think of LFD and how players for different realms treat each other there.

I cant really see it affecting me too much as the majority of the players I play with are all on the same server. Also for players who only have high level alts I doubt they will see much interaction of cross realm zones anyway.

So what do you think? An opportunity to group up with someone new? Or just someone who steals your leather, herbs and mining nodes?

Cross-realm zones are a good move. Honestly, it is kind of depressing to level up an alt and not see anyone for hours. Cross-realm zones address this issue.

With this new feature, overpopulated areas on a given realm can also be split into several instances. It means that during the launch of Mists of Pandaria, you will not have to compete with tons of players for quest items or quest mobs. I don't know if you played Cataclysm during launch, but I clearly remember spending 2 hours to complete the first quests in Vashj'ir.

Good move, now instead of making people pay to move from dead servers, just merge some of them, and in the end merge more and more servers.

I think it's a good move. I have a few mates that play on different realms so it would be nice to do stuff. It would make those lower level zones a bit fuller feeling which is nice although I have just finished off another alt and was rarely in a zone by myself... however outland is a rather over populated server =D.

Hopefully they will inc spawing time of nodes etc to combat volume of players.

I think it will be a great addition they just need to get all of the bugs out of it, OMG they are a pain.

Looking forward to see more of this :)

Think it's a good idea, levelling can get very lonely from time to time.

      Hello! I am a 845 Guardian Druid, with 840 Off-Spec for Balance/Feral, looking for a raiding team on Stormrage. I also just have my Hunter hit 110 who I am going to gear up.
      Schedule: I am unavailable Wednesdays and Saturdays, but otherwise available after 4:30PM Central Time.
      My ideal situation is to find a raid spot and clear normal+heroics, but I am also pretty interested in finding a reliable Mythic+ team to push to Mythic+15. I've jumped around a few guilds who are trying to build extra raid teams with leftovers from their main team, and it's gone pretty poorly. I am aware that tank spots are probably all taken, and I am comfortable using balance. I have yet to get into feral for melee dps.
      Feel free to drop a comment if a mythic+ team would be interesting to you.

      Bound By Blood(EU-Blade's Edge) is a friendly guild with laid back raids, we want you to have fun while also killing some dragons together. This doesn't mean you're allowed to slack in our raids. We want our players to be perform the best they can! Besides that we don't mind helping you with a few things, you don't play alone in our guild.

      Right now we raid thursday/sunday (monday optional) from 20:00-23:00 server time (some times may switch around).

      Right now we are a 10 man heroic guild, so we need quite a few more members for WoD Mythic raiding.

      You can make a application on our forums

      What are we trying to do?
      We're a group of old friends from the yonder years of rep grinds, spell reagents, downranking and Tarren Mill vs Southshore days, that are trying to get back together into a raiding guild that can get things done with a very short raid schedule. The currently plan is for running the new normal and heroic modes available once Warlords drops. We see the cross-realm raid capabilities as a great way to start things up and grow a good roster.
      About Us
      Most of the our guildies have been playing WoW in one way or another since Vanilla. We are casual, yet serious raiders, a community of coworkers, husbands/wives, friends, and other folks that enjoy playing together and killing bosses. Our goal is not hardcore raiding, but we are always pushing to clear as much content as possible in the little time we have available to raid.  We all have jobs and lives outside of gaming and don't have a lot of time available, hence a short raid week. This means we like to be as quick and efficient as possible and would prefer people with the same mindset.
      What we're looking for
      We'd like to take advantage of cross-realm raiding, so you're not required to be in our server (Greymane-US) with us, you just need to be on the Alliance side, which is where the action is going on right now.
      We are looking for people that are dedicated raiders, folks that like to tweak their toons and improve. You need to understand that raid time is not when you learn to play your toon, it's when you learn how to be more effective at helping your group kill a boss. However, we don't want folks who's sole purpose / focus is to get every piece of gear they want, when they want it. We like people that enjoy the process of raiding and strategizing, and want to be part of a community where they can hang out with good and friendly players. 
      You need to have recent raiding experience. Be available during our raid nights. Otherwise, what's the point? Understand that in order to maximize your toon you need to do other things outside of raiding and be willing to do so. Be capable and ready to do any homework required to better understand your role in a boss fight. As stated previously, be able to understand and identify what's going on in a boss fight and make any necessary changes to correct mistakes. Be responsible for your own screw ups Be willing and able to take and follow direction.
      What classes do we need?
      We're pretty open right now, some of us have multiple alts that will help balance / complete a raid comp. We definitely need 1 tank and 2 healers, as well as some dps.
      When do we raid?
      We raid 1 night a week: Wednesday - from 8-11p Server Time, that's 9-12 EST. The invites go out at 7:45p. Yes, you read that right: 1 night a week. This means we don't have a lot of time to @%%# around. We have Saturday scheduled for late night drunken PvP
      Where do I apply?
      You can apply at our website at: or on OpenRaid:

      I know there are multiple guilds out there that, since the beginning of WoW, had a presence on multiple servers and sometimes even both factions. Looking at how the new expansion is lining up, it seems that having a cross-realm guild is now a possibility. Sure you won't be able to do Mythic raids, but you can now pick from quite a huge pool of people from your faction to go take on a new raid.
      A group of friends and myself are coming back to the game and find that our server has reduced to a failry low population, so we figured it would be a great opportunity to take advantage of this new feature in WoD and try to put together a regular raiding group that doesn't necessarily have to belong to the same server. It seems that tools like Openraid will provide a community to get recruitment started at least.
      I would be interested in other people's thoughts on how to recruit a raid team that operates like this, as well as any thoughts or obstacles that you may think need to be overcome in order to make this successful. 
      Currently I've just posted on several server forums, as well as in the guild recruitment areas of IcyVeins and Openraid. 
      I'm pretty sure we're not the only ones thinking about doing this, has anyone else tried? any advice that you can offer?
      P.S.: To any folks in Icy-Veins that may be reading this, it could be interesting to have a cross-realm recruitment forum.
