Realm Connections

I’m looking to get back to classic for some casual fun but I don’t want to play on a totally dead world. So I’m of course coming from retail where there are servers connected together. Is that the case for classic era too?

Example: all my various persons are on Myzreal. I cloned some for just classic era. Are they all still just going to see just fellow Myzreal players or will I also see whoever-server?

It is this way for classic era as well, you will be seamlessly associated with other like realms.

Era is doing well but not overflowing with players. There will be a major surge if and when a handful of fresh classic realms are released.

i believe all the pve classic era realms are connected together, all the time. And all the realms, pvp/pve/rp are connected for just the PVP/BG matches.

Here’s the breakdown for Classic Era connected realms:

  • Anathema, Arcanite Reaper, Bigglesworth, Blaumeux, Fairbanks, Kurinnaxx, Rattlegore, Smolderweb, Thunderfury, and Whitemane [PVP West]
  • Arugal, Felstriker, and Yojamba [OCE PVP]
  • Ashkandi, Mankrik, Pagle, Westfall, and Windseeker [PVE East]
  • Atiesh, Azuresong, Myzrael, and Old Blanchy [PVE West]
  • Benediction, Faerlina, Heartseeker, Incendius, and Netherwind [PVP East]
  • Earthfury, Herod, Kirtonos, Kromcrush, Skeram, Stalagg, Sulfuras, and Thalnos [PVP East]

Bloodsail Buccaneers [RP-PVE East], Grobbulus [RP-PVP West] and Remulos [OCE PVE] are not connected at all - either to each other or any other realm. Everyone gets tossed together in BGs just for that purpose.

PVP West aka the Whitemane cluster is the populous PVP cluster.
PVE East aka the Mankrik cluster is the populous PVE cluster.
Hope all that helps, Bon.


Yes it’s amazing!!! Roll either faction on Whitemane and see for yourself (: I haven’t tried a single race that didn’t have at least 3 people hanging around the starting zone and the Valley of Trials is paaaacked

Important to note for any OCE PvE players that Remulos is not connected either.

This is a lot of great info, thanks a bunch!

So for battlegrounds, it doesn’t matter what cluster you are on, you will see everyone?

Correct for BGs

Also bon. If there are not alot of people on your cluster, check the shop it may allow free transfers to the popular one. It did for me anyway, from netherwind to whitemane.

That’s a handy-dandy tip. I’ll check that out too! Thanks!

They really need to connect all the North American Realms… Heartseeker is on the PvP East cluster, and there might be at most 20 people logged on at any given time (based on my limited experience logging in.)

Can you free transfer from that server?

I’d loose my toon’s name.

So there’s a free transfer but you don’t want to use it and want Blizz to merge more servers so you can keep your characters name?

They probably have it this way to keep latency consistent across the board.

There’s no real latency between East and West.

There is a 50ms difference between connecting to the East-based servers and West-Based servers.

You’re not really gonna feel that.

Thank you! I apologize for my NA-centric posting. I have edited my post above and will include Remulos in the future.

Interestingly enough people said that could not be done in the past but Aggrend put some info out a Classic Era discord that says they seem to have conquered that mountain. Maybe we could resume asking for all PVP to be connected to each other in Era. Same with PVE. Reference is here (thanks again, Woddisc):

emphasis mine


Okay, old man.
