World of Warcraft Receives Cross-Server Real ID Party Functionality

The Real ID system that was implemented by Blizzard allows friends in World of Warcraft to speak to each other, regardless of what faction or server they are on. While this is a great system, it does get a bit upsetting when you find out that you can’t run through dungeons with them or even invite them to a party. That was, of course, until now.

The new Real ID Party System introduced by the company now allows players to add their friends to a party across realms, that will allow them to enter dungeon queues together, as well as speak through party chat. With so many different servers running on different time zones, this is a great tool to keep all of your friends together and experience the game with one another.

The new system is still in its testing stages, so some bugs can be expected. Players can invite up to four Real ID friends to form parties with one another. This party can then attack 5-man dungeons or raids at the party leader’s leisure. The catch is that only Real ID friends on each others’ lists can be invited, so no friends of friends can come. Also, only the party leader can send out invites, no one else. This is a great system addition, and I can’t wait to try it out.
