In a few words
Today we're opening a new English Normal/PvE realm, named Saurfang, in the Misery Battlegroup. This is a fresh realm, thus no migration will be allowed to the realms during the first 90 days. Also, the Ahn'Qiraj gates and Sunwell will be closed, and you can't create a Death Knight on the realm until you have another level 55 character there (or 90 days have passed).

The realm will open this afternoon.

Please note that the starting areas may be quite flooded in the beginning, and the population cap is intentionally set a bit lower than normal to not have them even more flooded. The cap will be raised over the coming days as the population spreads out more.

Update 15:05: realm is now open.

Q u o t e:
I'm just curious, How does migration "off" the server work?

Is this possible? Is there a time limit before they can (considering its a new char)?

Or is it available instantly, only migration "in" isn't allowed?

Migration away from the realm is not limited, thus if you start there and decide you want to move elsewhere but don't want to start over, you can use Paid Character Transfers for that even on the first day.

Archiving this one. We will create a new thread covering migration and realms shortly.
