Blizzard has planned to launch a new service on its WoW test servers, which would see players being able to raid with friends that play on other game realms.
According to the EU forum post found by 1UP, the system would allow for players to form five person dungeon parties using Real ID friends, and works cross-realm.
The service would be similar in form to the Dungeon Finder feature, and while no release date was noted in the post due to it being a “fairly complex service to develop”, like the aforementioned service, it will likely be a premium offering.
However, the only person who will need to have the paid-for service installed will be the one sending out the invites. So, having friends with benefits is a good thing indeed.
