Blizzard Opens Six New 'World of Warcraft' Realms

by Rainier on Nov. 9, 2005 @ 9:55 a.m. PST

Rich in legend and filled with adventure, the World of Warcraft awaits! For the first time, players experience the lands of Azeroth from a new, in-depth perspective. As heroes, they explore familiar battlefields, discover new lands and take on epic quests and challenges.

The new realms that opened today are listed below. They include a combination of normal, player-vs.-player (PvP), and role-playing player-vs.-player (RP-PvP) realms, offering a variety of choices in terms of preferred play style and realm rule set.

  • Azshara (PvP)
  • Agamaggan (PvP)
  • Lightninghoof (RP-PvP)
  • Malfurion (Normal)
  • Frostmourne (PvP, Oceania-preferred)
  • Khaz'goroth (Normal, Oceania-preferred)

In support of World of Warcraft players based in Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore, Blizzard designated one normal and one PvP realm as Oceania-preferred. This means that the time on these two realms is set to GMT +11, providing players who have previously had difficulty attending time-sensitive world events due to time zone differences better opportunities to now experience this content. Because of the need to conduct weekly maintenance simultaneously for all realms in an individual region, the Oceania-preferred realms will have scheduled downtime at the same time as all other North America-based realms.
