Thread: Virtual Realms

    Virtual Realms

    They updated the upcoming features page the other day and Virtual Realms weren't listed with 5.4. Anyone know if these are still slated for 5.4, or are they pushing this feature back some?

    The last we heard (from a blue post) is that VRs are still on. But it won't be a flip of the switch type of event. They may VR 1-3 realms, see how it works, than VR 2-3 more in if everything is smooth. I don't know that they have given much more details about who is going where.

    On a side note, the Dalaran and Neutral AH's have been up and down the past week. So Half-Life 3 confirmed.

    Still slated for 5.4 as far as I'm concerned. If it is being pushed back, then Blizzard has never said anything about it yet, but really most that they've said about it makes it seem like it's going to be released as planned.
    Have you had the dream again? A black goat with seven eyes that watches from the outside.

    Thank you Shyama for the awesome signature!

    Only low pop realms will get virtual realms probably in 5.4 and might become bigger and bigger over the year just like CRZ.
    I hope for the sake of low pop realms that it won't get pushed back, enough is enough.

    Indeed. My realm is beyond dead.

    They said somewhere that Virtual Realms will ramped up slowly & be down by the next expansion.

    Link?

    If you cannot provide source then you're wrong.

    How does that work? I thought VR was multiple servers joined together.

    For what it's worth, here's the GC tweet about this:

    Starts small. Nothing at all about the next expansion, either 'down' or 'done' or whatever Arbsbarb was trying to convey.

    IDK, but it's up and working right now. It's the pvp server on the PTR realms list with no region tag. Just hopped on, and saw people from Broxigar.

    Didn't try Broxigar, but I'm guessing maybe it's VR'd, too.

    I really hope so. My server has been so sad and slow since that damn transfer sale.

    Interesting, are you sure it was not just CRZ enabled in all zones? Although I guess that could be similar to VRs. If you could when you get a chance check the AH and see if items are on sale from players from a different realm? If you don't feel like doing this, thanks for the information you've already given us.

    It should be easy to spot. VR'd realms have a (#) next to them.
