Attention: You can now server transfer your character in WoW: Classic

Finally, you aren’t screwed out of playing with friends

While not being able to server transfer initially lent credence to the whole authentic feel of World of Warcraft: Classic, it had to come eventually. The fact is WoW Classic demands a ton of time from players, so being able to transfer and spend time with friends is paramount to the longevity of the game. You can do that as of this week, but there are provisos.

First, there’s a 90-day cooldown on transfers, so be sure you want to do it before you pull the trigger. There’s also a gold limit that is linked to your player level (1-30 can only take 100 gold, 31-50 can take 500 gold and 51-60 can take 2000 gold). This is done to deter gold farming, and will only impact the most hardcore players as that’s a decent chunk of change for a casual fan. You also can’t transfer from PVE realms to PVP or from RP to RP-PVP.

Oh, and it costs money, just like the live version of the game! It’s $25 per character, per move. Again, make sure you’re 100% comfortable before you do it. That fee stings a lot less if you take into account all of the free transfers for populated realms that Blizzard has granted players in the past.
