Cross realm raids coming to WoW


It has been confirmed by Blizzard, cross realm raids are coming.  This will no longer just be for Real ID friends but a whole new system adapted to the raid finder.  With patch 4.3.2 players can form either regular or heroic raids with characters from a various gambit of servers. 

If you’re wondering if this 4.3.2 patch will allow you form cross realm battlegrounds as well – you absolutely can.  If you have friends from other servers or if you found a good thing with random people you just met – keep it going.  All of this will be available.   

The official notes are below, check them out HERE or read below.  Enjoy.   

We previously introduced the ability to form cross-realm parties with Real ID friends, and now with Patch 4.3.2, we're adding the ability for players to use that same functionality to form raids to run older normal or heroic raids, or participate in Battlegrounds!

This will allow you to join up with your Real ID friends from other realms and:

  • Form a cross-realm raid and use Raid Finder
  • Jump in to any classic dungeon or raid and be automatically placed in the same instance
  • Join forces and dominate the Battlegrounds

Please note, you will not yet be able to run normal or Heroic Dragon Soul with cross-realm Real ID raids.

As we look forward to the BattleTag system, it’s a very exciting time for World of Warcraft. No matter what realm you and your friends are on you’ll be able to team up and take on group content throughout the game.
