5.1 Realm Event Time Changes

Official Blizzard Quote:

With Patch 5.1: Landfall we’ve reactivated the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza. To accomplish this we reevaluated the way time-based events work in World of Warcraft. The time zone designation for a realm doesn’t always correlate with its real-world location, and that designation has traditionally directed a player to choose a realm that shares their local time. With cross-realm features like zone coalescing (CRZ) and Raid/Dungeon Finder, linking event reset or lockout times to realm times has caused a lot of confusion, such as zones flipping between day and night upon zoning, and created substantial issues with limited-time events, such as Azeroth’s fishing tournaments.

North American Daily Event Times

In Patch 5.1 we’ve moved most time-based events on North American realms to standardized, region-wide times. Below are the updated event times for all North American realms, regardless of your realm’s local time (excluding Oceanic realms).

Times displayed in North American Pacific Standard Time (GMT -8 hours)

Sunrise
5:30 a.m. PST*

Sunset
6:30 p.m. PST*

Daily quests reset
3:00 a.m. PST

Profession cooldowns and farm reset
3:00 a.m. PST

Dungeon & raid lockouts reset
Unchanged (times still shared between NA and Oceanic realms)

Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza begins
2 p.m. PST every Sunday

Battleground holidays
12:00 a.m. every Friday - 12:00 a.m. every Tuesday PST

Darkmoon Faire begins
12:00 a.m. PST first Sunday of every month

Oceanic Daily Event Times

Note that, due to the extreme time zone difference, Oceanic realms have a separate standardized time, and Oceanic realms aren’t coalesced with non-Oceanic realms for cross-realm zones. Oceanic realms are, however, still a part of the North American matchmaking pool for Scenarios, Dungeon Finder, Raid Finder, Battlegrounds, and Arenas, in order to ensure that the matchmaking system is able to draw from a healthy population of players at any given hour. Because of this, raid/dungeon lockouts will continue to reset at the same time for North American and Oceanic realms (i.e. reset times will still vary depending on your local time).

Times displayed as Australian Eastern Standard Time (GMT +10 hours)

Sunrise
5:30 a.m. EST*

Sunset
6:30 p.m. EST*

Daily quests reset
3:00 a.m. EST

Profession cooldowns and farm reset
3:00 a.m. EST

Dungeon & raid lockouts reset
Unchanged (times still shared between NA and Oceanic realms)

Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza begins
2 p.m. EST

Battleground holidays
12:00 a.m. every Friday - 12:00 a.m. every Tuesday EST

Darkmoon Faire begins
12:00 a.m. EST first Sunday of every month

*Day/night changeovers are not currently set to the times listed above and will be updated in a hotfix as soon as possible.

I was waiting for this change my entire life :duckers:
Please use an appropriate signature; thanks! Use only common abbreviations and acronyms, and then give their definition as soon after their first use as possible. Occasionally, however, an abbreviation or acronym may be so familiar to intended audiences that it may be used without a definition. In fact, some may be more familiar than the full name. http://www.arenajunk...-rules-2272014/
