If you’ve been planning to make use of the Free Character Transfer service, please do so as soon as possible.

Thank you!

We’ve opened the Free Character Transfer service to players on some realms in this region. Free Character Transfers are now available:

From – To – Faction Restriction – NA Realms

  • Faerlina – Incendius – Available to all characters
  • Faerlina – Skeram – Available to all characters
  • Mankrik – Westfall – Horde only
  • Mankrik – Windseeker – Horde only
  • Whitemane – Anathema – Horde only
  • Whitemane – Thunderfury – Horde only

From – To – Faction Restriction – EU Realms

  • Gehennas – Stonespine – Horde only
  • Gehennas – Ten Storms – Horde only
  • Pyrewood Village – Nethergarde Keep – Alliance only
  • Firemaw – Bloodfang – Horde only

Please note:

  • You cannot transfer a character who
    • is the leader of a guild.
    • has items up for auction.
    • has in-game mail messages.
  • You may have to change the character’s name after the transfer.
  • You cannot transfer a character to a PvP realm where you already have a character of the opposite faction.
  • The transfer of a character is a final decision once initiated, and cannot be undone. Blizzard Customer Service cannot adjust or reverse the character transfer process.

During times when servers are very busy, free character transfers can take up to several hours.

As always, we will monitor the number of characters moved and the populations on the realms above and close free transfers if necessary. We encourage players who wish to move to do so as soon as possible, as this service may be closed without notice.

We’ll update this thread with any planned changes or closures as soon as they are finalized.

Thank you!
