Siege of Orgrimmar cross realm?

Sorry if I missed a thread for this anywhere.

Alot of my friends are considering coming back to try the new raid, the issue being we're scattered across the Server-verse that is WoW. Will we be able to group up and enter the same Siege of Orgimmar in 5.4 via real-ID? Or is that a dream still out of grasp.

Thanks for any replies! <3

So far, current tier is not possible to raid crossrealm on normal or heroic difficulty no. LFR is, and if I'm not mistaken, flex raid will be available crossrealm as well. Not sure if virtual zones will make it to 5.4, but it'll be some sort of realm merging.

Flex Raid will be indeed Cross-Realm.

Virtual Realms (now called Connected Realms) are a major 5.4 feature and will let you 'Cross-Realm' current tier raids in the same Connected Realm

Problem is that there is no ETA on connected realms, just "some time after 5.4"...

I wouldnt be surprised if we dont even get to see it in MoP.

It might just be another scam from blizzard in order to get people on low pop realms to renew their subs. Just like they have "been working on a solution to low pop realms" for years... More false hope.

It sounds like a scam, no doubt, if they promised it from release of 5.4 then it would be a different story, just saying "some time after 5.4", could potentially be a VERY long time.

Connected Realms are a major part of 5.4 as I mentioned above. It's in the patch notes, Blizzard are happy with it and it'll be adjusted along the way so Realms feel as populated as possible.

No need to ramble on about this scam nonsense because you're personally suspicious about it for whatever reason.

You are wrong, its not there from release, like i said there is NO ETA on connected realms. The official statement is that it will be implemented "some time after 5.4 hits".

Who knows when that might be.

Ah yeah my bad. I misread something ^^

Anyhow the realms in the PTR are currently Connected together, so we know it works. But I'm sure you know how bad it'd be for Blizzard if they lied about one of the major features right? They won't lie about it, not after all this info + even putting it in the patch notes.

i'm sure i'll be corrected if i'm wrong...

but since 4.3.2 you can create a cross-realm raid so long as you know their realID (battle.net ID)

and openraid has ToT raids on it (which, as of 20th August, is still current content)

And you won't be disappointed in that certainty!

You're only seeing ToT events on your own realm. Or at any rate, it won't let you sign up for them with an offrealm character.
