      Please join us at that time, queue for the Wintergrasp battleground, and play with the blues as we try to spin up multiple instances of it. Later, we’re planning to see to it that the outdoor version of the Wintergrasp zone experiences authentic, official shenanigans.

      With today’s maintenance, we’ve applied a hotfix to add the ability to queue for Battlegrounds from anywhere in the world. This will allow players to continue exploring the world while also participating in Battlegrounds.
      You’ll find it in the Battlegrounds tab on the PvP menu.
      Battlemasters are not going anywhere, so you can still talk to them if you prefer to.

      Blizzard today announced the launch of two fresh Wrath Classic PvP realms. Both will launch when the maintenance in each region is finished.
      Both realms will have restrictions identical to other fresh Wrath Classic realms.
      US Region
      Angerforge will be up when maintenance is finished today.

      When Wrath Classic realm maintenance is finished today, you’ll find a new Fresh Start realm available in this region: Angerforge (PvP).
      As with previous Fresh Start realms, only new characters can be created here. All transfers to and from Angerforge are disabled, level boosts may not be applied to characters on this realm, and Death Knights may not be created here until your character is leveled up.
      Over the last few weeks, we’ve been highly focused on realm populations and making adjustments to promote the long-term success of all realms. We’re looking forward to seeing the Angerforge community join the story.

      The new EU realm will be up when the realm maintenance is finished early tomorrow morning.
