Blizzard has revealed the schedule for Phase 2 which starts next week. Phase 2 will remove layering and introduce the honor system, world bosses and the key ring. Next to that, Blizzard announced more servers to be eligible for Realm transfers. Check out their full statement below, but first the important dates:
On Tuesday November 12 all realms will go to one layer. This will go live directly after maintenance. This means everyone will be able to see each other, but also mean high queue times for some servers, which is why Blizzard is opening more servers for transfer. Blizzardis encouraging players on the American servers of Arugal, Faerline, Herod and Whitemane to use this free transfer to avoid queue times.
On Thursday November 14 the PVP Honor system will go live, as well as the world bosses. At 11 PM EST, which is at 20:00 GMT +1, the update will go live on all servers. Beware for the update, since everyone will be hunting each other for some honor and try to kill the world bosses Azuregos and Kazzak.
Here follows the entire message by Blizzard:
Next week, we will take multiple steps to prepare for the release of the PvP Honor system and World Bosses at 11:00 a.m. PST on Thursday, November 14. Here’s an outline of those steps.Monday, November 11 – Updates to Free Character Moves**
