The moment that many World of Warcraft fans have been eagerly waiting for is finally here! After almost two decades after the game launched, Blizzard has announced that WoW cross-faction guilds will now be possible.

This exciting news comes nearly a year after Horde and Alliance members were given the green light to team up for select content. And now, the barriers between factions have been lifted even further. Get ready to join forces with your allies from the opposite side and conquer Azeroth like never before!

When will cross-faction guilds be available in WoW (World of Warcraft)?

Patch 10.1, Embers of Neltharion, brings us the ability to form cross-faction guilds! Yes, you read that right. Now you can team up with players from both factions and take on the world together. But that’s not all – this exciting update also introduces a brand new zone, an epic raid, user interface improvements, and captivating story content.

“That is real! That will be on the PTR. The PTR is coming later this week I believe and that will be available Day 1 on the PTR. We are quite excited about that and that’s just aligned with some of the philosophies that we’ve been discussing about cross-faction.”
– Morgan Day, Associate Game Director

The prospect of cross-faction guilds is generating a buzz in the gaming community. While the specifics are shrouded in mystery, the mere idea of breaking down barriers between factions is enough to set imaginations ablaze. Gone are the days of being pigeonholed into a single group of friends. Now you can venture forth into uncharted territories with a diverse cast of characters by your side

Horde vs. Alliance

At the heart of World of Warcraft lies a legendary conflict between the formidable Horde and the noble Alliance. Despite occasional moments of unity in the face of greater threats, the two factions remain distinctly divided in terms of gameplay. Even as the game has expanded with gripping storylines, the core dynamic of this epic struggle remains a defining feature of the WoW experience.

 Patch 10.1 – Embers of Neltharion

New Zone: Zaralek Cavern

Summon your bravado in a thrilling expedition through an enigmatic underground labyrinth. Prepare to discover uncharted territories, embark on daring quests, encounter captivating new inhabitants, and revel in exhilarating updates to your Dragonriding abilities.

  • Journeying to the depths of the Obsidian Citadel, where the legendary Neltharion once stood guard over the Dragon Isles, you’ll discover a hidden laboratory that echoes with the secrets of the Earth-Warder. Here, shrouded from the prying eyes of the other Aspects, Neltharion delved into forbidden experiments that would rock the very foundations of the world.
  • But it is within the shadowy confines of the laboratory’s inner sanctum where Neltharion’s true madness took root. It was here that he first communed with the ancient, malevolent beings known as the Old Gods, embarking on a path that would ultimately lead to his tragic transformation into the dreaded Deathwing.

New Raid Dungeon: Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible

Embark on a daring quest to infiltrate Neltharion’s covert laboratory, cunningly concealed within the enigmatic depths of Zaralek Cavern. It was within these dark and foreboding walls that the infamous dracthyr was first forged, and where Neltharion, once a valiant dragon, ultimately gave in to the malevolent whispers of the Old Gods, succumbing to their corrupting influence.

Born with a passion for video games, I have been a fan of the medium for as long as I can remember. From playing Mortal Kombat and getting frustrated whenever I lost, to exploring the worlds of RPGs and action-adventure, video games have always been a source of my entertainment. Aside from gaming, I have also been passionate about photography since high school. Whether capturing the beauty of nature or the emotions of people, I find great satisfaction in capturing moments through the lens of their camera. In addition to these pursuits, I also found an unexpected love for writing. Initially never intending to pursue this skill, I discovered writing as a means of escape and creative expression. With a growing passion for storytelling, I now find myself diving deeper into the world of writing, exploring new genres and styles to share my unique perspective with the world.
