A Blue Post has confirmed the upcoming Patch on Wednesday 23.08.2006.
„Please note that all realms will be brought offline Wednesday morning between 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. CEST (Paris Time) for our weekly maintenance. This maintenance is extended due to 1.12 and the cross realm battlegrounds.
All realms should be available again shortly afterwards.
We apologise for the inconvenience.“ – GameMaster
The patch will bring cross realm battlegrounds, world PvP and the long awaited Rogue Review. I will link the Patch Notes tomorrow when they are online.
