This maintenance will be conducted as a means to optimize our World of Warcraft infrastructure for the associated realms, and is expected to last approximately 48 hours. Please note that during this time, some services such as the Armory or Paid Character Transfers may be unavailable. Your patience and understanding are appreciated.
