    Cross-Realm Dungeon Feature Coming Soon

    Cross-Realm Dungeon Feature Coming Soon
    Originally Posted by Slorkuz (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
    With the continued popularity of the Dungeon Finder, many players have been asking for a way to group up with real-life friends who play on other realms to take on instances together. 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.

    Oh cool.

    I'm so glad they still have a hard on for Real ID.

    And charging for things.

    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.

    Paid? Really? haha... So we are slowly moving from shit like pets or mobile AH/gchat. Well I am not, people who still play are.

    Paid service? Ouch, Blizzard. If you're gonna keep charging for all these external things, you should prolly cut the monthly fee in half. You're turning into a Free-to-Play style MMO with all sorts of "premiums"...but you still charge a monthly fee.

    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.
