Already about to roll out on the Mists of Pandaria beta is a brand new feature that Blizzard hopes will improve the leveling experience. Cross-Realm Zones will allow Blizzard to instance specific zones and allow for multiple realms to group together, complete quests and level through content without merging realms together.

In the FAQs posted to the official WoW blog, the developers explain that the feature will function very similar to the cross-realm dungeons, raids and battlegrounds that currently exist in the game. In these zones, you can see and play with players from other realms and the experience should be seamless.

Transitioning to other zones, however, won’t necessarily work, but you can still participate in these cross-realm zones with Real ID friends of the same faction. The feature will also not be level-capped and loot will be handled the same as it is in cross-realm dungeons.

For more details, check out the official WoW blog update.
