Heads up: The realID feature Blizzard was promising that lets you invite other players from other realms into your dungeon party, is now in game and for free. Theres a small + icon next to players name in the realID friends list. If its not there reload your game!

And btw, theres no level restrictions for who is in the party, and you can even run lowbies through dungeons if you both go to the dungeon portal on your own realm!
Also, mobile auction house and mobile guild chat are currently free. But I think they may be using the old "free HBO weekend" method of marketing, so don't be surprised if these being free is a temporary thing. We'll see, though, I suppose.

Now if only I could convince all my Real ID friends to switch to Horde. >.>

I just logged on to check and it does seem to work. I only had 2 friends on atm one was on my server and it would work but the other is opposite faction so it won't.

Logged onto an alt of the same faction and can confirm that it does work. Slightly easier way to invite friends on the same server too.

"Q: How long will the testing period last?A: We haven’t yet determined how long the testing period will last. We'll keep you updated on the status and inform you when the test period is going to end in the future. Q: Will aspects of the Real ID Party system be premium-based?A: We'll have information on the premium-based aspects of the Real ID Party system toward the end of the testing period."So much for it being free. Sigh.

@cutaiaI can't get the mobile guild chat working on my phone -- are you sure that's free right now?

Mobile Guild Chat was literally working for free for me yesterday, and now today tells me I need a subscription.

Must have been a bug related to the trial of cross-realm grouping. Hotfix'd? Oh well.
