Cross-realm Real ID grouping now available


A few months back, Blizzard teased that a [hide]new service would be hitting WoW[/hide] that would allow members of the same faction to group and queue for random dungeons across servers. Players would need to be Real ID friends with the people they wanted to invite into a group and would be limited to 5-man dungeons; no raids or world content would be available to cross-server groups.

The service has apparently just gone live, free, for what is probably a limited time. Blizzard had also said that this cross-realm grouping would be part of the premium package of WoW services that players can pay for monthly, and only the group leader doing the invites would have to have the service in order to invite people cross-realm. Much as the mobile guild chat feature was rolled out free to let people check it out, it appears cross-realm Real ID grouping is getting the same trial period.

Check out cross-realm Real ID grouping in game, and start grouping with your friends beyond server boundaries, and hit the jump for the full announcement.[hide]Continue reading Cross-realm Real ID grouping now available[/hide]Filed under: [hide]Blizzard[/hide], [hide]Cataclysm[/hide][hide]Cross-realm Real ID grouping now available[/hide] originally appeared on [hide]WoW Insider[/hide] on Thu, 14 Jul 2011 13:00:00 EST.
