Patch 5.1 Realm Event Time Changes

Quote From: Zarhym (Source)
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
