Free character transfers are coming to World of Warcraft Classic

Blizzard has a solution for players on realms with log-in queues.

Blizzard has announced that free character realm transfers are coming to World of Warcraft Classic in the near future. The response from the World of Warcraft community to WoW Classic has been simply incredible and Blizzard has been quite open about the fact the player participation has surpassed their expectations.

So many players came back to play “vanilla WoW” that every single WoW Classic realm was full on launch day. Since that time, Blizzard has had to add several new realms to ensure they could accommodate demand. Just like all those years ago with vanilla, log-in queues have returned. The idea behind solving this problem is that by adding new realms and allowing players to transfer to them for free, the population will even out across the realms, and log-in queues will be eliminated.

The official forum post from Blizzard is available below.

We are working to open our Free Character Move service for select WoW Classic realms in the coming days.

When free character moves become available from one of the most highly-populated realms, players will see the option to initialize a free character move on either the character select screen or the queue screen of the realm.

To best prepare, please note that a character cannot move if the character:

is a guild leader.
has active auction listings or bids.
has mail.

We will post full details about the realms available and character restrictions when we open the service.

Thank you!

***Update*** — The official realm list has been released. More information available here.
