"Please note, you will not yet be able to run normal or Heroic Dragon Soul with cross-realm Real ID raids."I eagerly await an about-face on this in 9-12 months.

At first I thought it was a selling-prevention measure (people advertising carrying people from around the world through H-DS for loots), but you can't trade cross-realm. Then again, if they already have to exchange real emails, maybe it's an RL currency concern... right now the server boundaries prevent that sort of nonsense.

Also, if a few players from a realm with no Madness kill raid with, say, Blood Legion (hypothetical), you have the issue of the Realm First achieve. Is it disqualified if you have cross-raid members? Only if they're in the majority? Same requirement as guild credit?

My guess is you'll see an about face on this as soon as most or all of the realm and world firsts for achievements and kills etc have been had.

My server is pretty much raiding crap. Server first Heroic Lich King 25 didn't happen until Cata. There hasn't been a server first Heroic Rag kill yet, or it was after 4.3, and the most progressed anyone is in DS right now is 1/8H. Please, don't wait for us. It wouldn't be fair to you guys.~Guy That Doesn't Raid Currently (To His Disdain)

Can it be considered an 'about-face' when they explicitly said "you can't YET"?Sounds like they could allow it in a few months and it wouldn't be contradictory to what they said here.

"Can it be considered an 'about-face' when they explicitly said "you can't YET"?"No, you can't, but some of the WoW community tends to ignore subtext AND context when looking at what they're told.For the initial period, it's still a testing ground for the system, and just like the raid system, it's unlikely to ever settle down for a long while, but for the first few raid tiers, I wouldn't expect it to be available for at least 4 months. Just to appease the "server community" nutjobs.I seriously look forward to the day when WoW can finally be played globally. It's still only a micro MMO by design ;)

I read "yet" as "Not right now, but still planned."
