WoW Classic Free Character Moves Coming Soon For Select Servers

More details about character moves will come once the service is live.


Blizzard is preparing to help adjust player counts on certain World of Warcraft Classic servers, and it'll allow some players to make the move for free.

A World of Warcraft community manager shared the news in a forum post, specifying that free character server moves are coming to select WoW Classic realms in the coming days. Once the service opens, you'll see the option to start a transfer on either the character select screen or the realm queue screen. Currently, there are three restrictions outlined in the post: You can't transfer a character if it's a guild leader, has active auction listings or bids, or has mail. The community manager said a full post with further character restrictions and other details will be shared once the service goes live.

There's no clarification on when the free character move service will be accessible, nor is there a confirmation on what servers will see the service.

In other WoW Classic news, more than 300,000 people watched as the game got its first level 60 player. Dot Esports reported that "Jokerd" leveled a gnome mage to 60 in three days, 20 hours, and 40 minutes, playing on the Mograine server in Europe. The game's garnered so much attention, in fact, that it has surpassed Fortnite and all other games as the most popular title on Twitch. In a feature story, we examined why WoW Classic is great and concluded that it's more than just nostalgia.
