Last week, Blizzard teamed up with Bellular to bring you a series of World of Warcraft video guides for new and returning players. The second video guides you through character creation and realm selection.


  • A realm is a complete instance of World of Warcraft, and all realms have identical content.
  • Characters are created on a realm. They exist within that instance of World of Warcraft.
  • If you're new to World of Warcraft and have issues with realm selection, you can't go wrong with picking a server with High population.
    • Heavily populated realms have better AH prices and a more active community.
  • Starting with the 8.0.1 pre-patch, we only have two realm types: Normal and RP (role play).
    • Previously, there were PvP / PvE realms, but Blizzard introduced War Mode that lets you enable World PvP on any realm, so PvP realms are gone and PvE realms are now called Normal.
    • RP servers are intended to provide players with an added level of immersion in the game world.
  • Many of the game features today support playing with people on different realms.

Fo more details, check out the video below!

      Two Sides to Every Tale is a new achievement that rewards two interesting mounts in Patch 8.1.5. Alliance players will unlock a Wolf mount, whereas the Horde can get a Horse mount. You can earn them by completing the Tides of Vengeance War Campaign and the A Nation United / Zandalar Forever! achievements on both factions.
      Check out our Patch 8.1.5 for the latest World of Warcraft news.
