Q u o t e:
We’re currently in the final processes of the scheduled maintenance but have identified an issue that needs to be resolved before bringing the realms online. We’re now extending the maintenance window and will provide another update by 12:30 PM PDT, or as soon as the realms are available.
Good Tuesday morning, everyone, and welcome to Scheduled Realm Maintenance: the Patch Edition!
From our Service Status Forum:
Q u o t e:
We will be performing scheduled maintenance on Tuesday, March 23rd. Maintenance will begin at 3:00 AM PDT and conclude at approximately 11:00 AM PDT. During this time, all realms and many web services will be unavailable.
Thank you for your patience.
As a reminder! While Tuesday maintenance may briefly interrupt your regularly-scheduled pro-gaming, it is an excellent time to focus on account security. Be sure to complete any OS, web browser, or software updates and then run your suite of anti-malware programs.
You may also want to use this time to prep your UI for the new patch. This includes ensuring that all installed AddOns are up-to-date and, most importantly, compatible with the latest client. For the smoothest experience possible, though, fully resetting your UI is recommended, as this can eliminate many display and data corruption issues.
