Added in the later parts of World of Warcraft's Cataclysm expansion, cross-realm play opened up never before seen avenues when it came to the community.
This feature allowed players to participate in several activities together, from dungeons to quests and PvP, and no longer were you constricted to just playing with your realm's players.
Later on in Battle For Azeroth, Blizzard made the jump to take this addition a step further and allowed them to complete raids together as well. Although only possible for the Normal and Heroic versions of the raids, it yet again freed up community constrictions.
Now, with WoW Dragonflight looming, this all begs the question: Will there be Cross-Realm Raiding in the new expansion?
Will there be Mythic Cross-Realm Raiding in Dragonflight?
Just like the end of Battle for Azeroth and Shadowlands as a whole, players can expect cross-realm raiding to come to Dragonflight.
For now, though, just like the expansions before it, in Dragonflight players will only be able to do the Normal and Heroic at the very start of the raid's release, with Mythic becoming available later on. However, it seems like this might change sometime in Dragonflight's future.
According to an interview with content creator and guild leader for Liquid, Maximum, World of Warcraft's Game Director, Ion Hazzikostas, stated that players can possibly expect Mythic cross-realm raiding to become available much sooner, perhaps even at the start alongside Normal and Heroic.
"I think in the modern game really server increasing feels like restrictions without much upside and so we are systematically working at chipping away at all of those divisions—it just takes time," said Hazzikostas. "I think when we get to a point where things like potentially cross-server guilds down the line and so forth are on the table I think fully cross-server raids at the start will be automatic. But for now, while we're working towards it, we want to make sure we're not pulling the rug out from our existing social structures. And so earlier but not day one."
Cross-realm raiding opened up a lot of doors for World of Warcraft players looking to raid. Only time will tell if this goes further with the inclusion of Mythic difficulty and beyond!
