From next week, World of Warcraft's oceanic servers will finally be hosted in Australia.

Blizzard announced the news tonight at a World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor pre-launch community event in Sydney.

For almost a decade, ANZ World of Warcraft players have played on US servers hosted in California. Select US servers were only categorised as Oceanic, and displayed Australian Eastern Time. The move to locally hosting should significantly reduce lag for players in Australia and New Zealand.

The change-over will occur as a part of next week's scheduled maintenance on Tuesday, October 28, local time. The Oceanic servers will be down for an extended window. When the servers come back online, they will be hosted in Australia.

Australian and New Zealand players with characters on other non-Oceanic US servers will be offered free character transfers to the Oceanic servers for a limited time.

Yeah I was thinking now that melee is suddenly more playable. However keep in mind it's highly likely in BGs/Arenas that you'll still be playing on US servers.
