Cross-Realm Dungeon Feature Coming Soon

Today, we wanted to give you a heads up about a new feature currently in development that will allow players to invite Real ID friends of the same faction to a party regardless of the realm they play on, and then queue up for a 5-player regular or Heroic dungeon.

As this is a fairly complex service to develop, we don’t have a release date to share quite yet. It’s important to note that as with some of the other convenience- and connectivity-oriented features we offer, certain elements of the cross-realm Real ID party system will be premium-based, though only the player sending the invitations will need to have access to the premium service. We'll have more details to share with you as development progresses -- in the meantime, you may begin to see elements of the feature appear on the World of Warcraft PTR.

    Can't say I'm impressed with this being a paid service. Hopefully they backtrack on that.

    Here's something you should have gotten years ago, AND we are charging you for it.
    Love Blizzard.

    So, since they're able to program that ... they should be able to initiate cross realm BOAs :/

    Premium? Premium? dont we f**ckin pay a monthly fee for playin a game, and now they are asking to pay more money to be able to queue with your friends from different realm. HAHA! Big joke. Hopefully the idea will die, cause if that goes live its going to be a major failure from Blizzard's side.

    I guess they could just put the subs up. This is optional and at least you can pretend you're getting something extra for your money =)

    Blizzard hardly needs to make this a paid service, you'd think they have enough money to do one good thing for free, but nope...
    The idea is very good and hopefully they'll back away with the required payment.
    With all these new premium features they should cut the subscription in half.

    World of Warcraft has turned into a F2P, only that here you need to pay for the updates -and- the monthly subscription.

    This is probably one of those things where there wasn´t enough demand to justify the development cost, so they had to pitch it to the accountants another way. I think it´s pretty blah myself. Would people who are in that situation mostly just do a server transfer?
