We’re just a couple weeks out from World of Warcraft Classic‘s launch date, and today Blizzard has announced the list of realms that will be available at launch. The list is drastically smaller than the amount of realms that were available way back when in 2006 (rightfully so, as there will be far fewer players), so if you’re looking to reconnect with your former guildmates, you’d better start thinking about what server you’ll be choosing now.
See below for the list of US realms that will be available at launch.
Starting August 12, 2019 3:00 PM , players with an active subscription or game time on their World of Warcraft account can reserve their character names by creating up to three WoW Classic characters. Please note that all of your characters on a PVP realm must be the same faction.
Before creating a character, you’ll choose the realm where you want to play that character. Realms in the Americas will be:
Name Type Time Zone Atiesh Normal Pacific Mankrik Normal Eastern Myzrael Normal Pacific Pagle Normal Eastern
Name Type Time Zone Faerlina PvP Eastern Fairbanks PvP Pacific Herod PvP Eastern Thalnos PvP Eastern Whitemane PvP Pacific
Name Type Time Zone Bloodsail Buccaneers RP Eastern Grobbulus RP-PvP Pacific
Name Type Time Zone Arugal PvP Australian Eastern Time Remulos Normal Australian Eastern Time
Relative realm population will be visible in-game to help in choosing a realm so you will see “Low, Medium, and High” in the realm selection screen. If there are high numbers of players congregating on individual realms during name reservation and character creation, we will post warnings about the potential for queues on those realms, giving you time to choose alternate realms.
