Realm Missing from Realm List

Realm Missing from Realm List

Please try organizing the list alphabetically by clicking on the "Realm Name" section at the top of the realm selection window. Doing this will refresh the realm list. Now scroll through the entire list and look for your realm. If your realm is still missing please try manually setting the realm by following the instructions below:

1. Open the World of Warcraft folder on your hard drive (Default Folder: C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft).
2. Open the WTF folder.
3. Open the file using a text editor, like WordPad.

Locate the line:

SET realmName "(realm name)"

Change this to: SET realmName "(your realm)"
-Example: SET realmName "Silver Hand"

Now save the file, do not try to "Save as", use the Save feature only to retain the file type as a (.wtf) file, then launch WoW. If you are still unable to access your realm this may indicate a temporary issue with your realm. If this is the case, please wait 10-15 minutes and try again. When this occurs the game servers can be still up, so you may notice people playing while you are not able to get in. You can track the status of the realms on our WoW Realm Status Page or our Service Status Forum
