WoW Classic Realms Population Report: August 21st

Recommended Posts

KdL7W4m.png

New servers have launched in both regions and Blizzard will be offering free realm transfers on overpopulated realms after launch, so feel free to create your characters on said realms.

Check out our WoW Classic Hub for the latest Classic news!

Welcome to our latest realm population report, where we monitor the Classic WoW realm population based on available data. Blizzard recently added new servers to both regions, so we wanted to wait a bit to see how they become populated over the next 24 hours before doing another report.

We listed all previous reports and blue posts regarding realm population below:

WoW Classic AMA & Realm Population

The latest Classic AMA touched upon the subject of realm population. We learned how Blizzard is going to use layering on launch, The devs also said that:

  • Herod (US) and Shazzrah (EU) queue times can reach several hours or more in certain instances. 
  • Lengthy queue times are expected for at least the first week after launch.
  • Free transfers will be offered to players from given servers if they happen to be overpopulated at launch.
    • With that said, you should now be more confident about creating a character on a overpopulated realm. Chances are it's going to get better a few weeks after launch and in the worst-case scenario, you'll receive a free character transfer.
  • There's no scheduled maintenance planned for launch, just rolling restarts.
  • In the minutes leading up to launch, the plan is that the realms will up and available and the Enter World button will instantly light up once we're launched.

This article highlights population changes since our latest report.

EU Realms

Two new German realms and an English realm recently opened up in the region:

  • Firemaw - PvP - English
  • Razorfen - Normal - German
  • Venoxis - PvP - German

As of now, a large number of WoW Classic characters have been created on the following realms. Players with characters on this realm are likely to experience severe queues at release.

  • Faerlina - PvP
  • Herod - PvP
  • Mankrik - Normal
  • Pagle - Normal
  • Thalnos - PvP
  • Whitemane - PvP

Last Updated: August 20

We have updated the algorithm for the realm population tags so they more accurately reflect the expected population for that realm. The realms that are listed as “Full” are where we expect to see extended queues. If you’re concerned about long queue times affecting your play experience, you may want to consider creating characters on a lower population realm before the game releases on August 26 at 3:00 p.m. PDT.

As a result of the US realms being mostly Full, Blizzard launched two new servers in the region:

  • Blaumeux - PvP - Pacific Time Zone
  • Skeram - PvP - Eastern Time Zone
Name Type Time Zone Population
Atiesh Normal Pacific High
Blaumeux *new* PvP Pacific Low
Mankrik Normal Eastern High Full
Myzrael Normal Pacific High
Pagle Normal Eastern Full
Skeram *new* PvP Eastern Medium
Stalagg PvP Eastern Medium High 
Faerlina PvP Eastern Full
Fairbanks PvP Pacific  High
Herod PvP Eastern Full
Whitemane PvP Pacific Full
Bloodsail Buccanneers RP Eastern Medium
Grobbulus RP-PvP Pacific Medium
Thalnos PvP Eastern High Full

Oceanic Realms

Arugal's population is now High.

Name Type Time Zone Population
Arugal PvP Australian Eastern Time Medium High
Remulos Normal Australian Eastern Time Medium

give it a month or 2 and the full's will be high at best  the mediums will be low to medium. because the hype is gone and the wimps that cant take the grind of classic will go back to having there hands help in retail. and all the 'Rush to 60's will get bored waiting for new content ect

      There's a whole lot more free moves coming tomorrow from pretty much all US and OC servers, in addition to the already ongoing moves to Latin American and Brazillian realms. While the transfers start tomorrow, there's no end date listed, however moves will be closed as soon as a target realm reaches high population. With layering being removed completely soon, and already at a bare minimum now, these moves come at a pretty good time.

      It seems there was a short-lived bug in Dire Maul North that allowed the buff the guards gave after completing a tribute run to stack! A hotfix has been deployed around 30 minutes ago and that is no longer the case, so if you managed to snag some extra power you've had your fun and it's now fixed!
      Dire Maul Buffs (source)
      A hotfix was applied to all realms 30 minutes ago that squashed that bug. The buffs obtained from the guards in Dire Maul North after completing a tribute run will no longer stack.
      Thank you for your feedback on it!
      You can also check out our DM guides as well as an official preview for the dungeon here.

      It's been a while since we got word that something weird was happening with the auras in Classic, with several aspects that affect them already resolved. Today we have further progress on that, namely the part where some item enchants were using up slots and thus knocking off helpful buffs like Power Word: Fortitude and the like, as the issue has been partially fixed. There are still some item enchants that require a slot, but that's what it was like in 1.12 as well so it's staying. Check out the full details below:
      October 15 (source)
      With scheduled maintenance earlier today, we applied the following hotfix:
      WoW Classic
      Enchantments on gear should no longer count as helpful auras. They now count as passive auras. There are still some enchantments occupying helpful slots – notably, the Arcanum enchants that will come from Dire Maul and other enchantments that are applied via item rather than via the enchanting profession. This was the case in our 1.12 reference.
      Thank you very much!
