WOW will launch Patch 5.4 and New Connected Realms will be Added

Blizzard will add new connected realms to world of warcraft after the patch 5.4 is released. It should be a good news to wow players since warlock green fire quest has come out.

If you're playing on a Connected Realm you'll be able to join the same guilds, access a single Auction House, run the same raids and dungeons and join other players to complete quests. A Connected Realm is a set of two or more standard realms that have been permanently linked and behave as if they were one cohesive realm.

Last week Blizzard announced that the number of World of Warcraft monthly subscribers had dropped to 7.7 million - comparable to the audience the MMO had in 2007, shortly before first expansion The Burning Crusade helped it break the eight million million mark.

The figure marked a notable decline for World of Warcraft in recent times, having fallen fairly steadily from a highpoint of 12 million subscribers in October 2010 - two months before Cataclysm.

Blizzard is yet to decide which realms will be made part of a Connected Realm, but it has decided to connect realms only to other realms of the same type, so, PvE to PvE and so on. It doesn't know how many realms will make up a Connected Realm, either.
