Mostly high population realms to Earthfury, Arcanite Reaper, and Anathema
If you’ve been playing World of Warcraft Classic hoping that a lot of people would “pack it in and stop playing after the initial rush,” you’ve probably been surprised at the events of the past few weeks.
Although queue times aren’t as crazy as they once were, it’s common in the US evenings to see many realms listed as “full” and endure 30-40 minute queues, and Blizzard is once again trying to combat that annoyance with even more free character transfers. Starting today (live at the time of this article), you can transfer from high population realms to lower ones. Big ones of note: gargantuan realms like Herod and Kromcrush are offering one-way tickets elsewhere. The destinations are Felstriker, Earthfury, Heartseeker, Anathema, Arcanite Reaper, Deviate Delight, and Windseeker, which all vary based on your current home.
Blizzard says that the timeline is going to be rather short, as the moves will run through Monday, September 23 at the earliest, urging players to use the service “as soon as possible.” I recommend doing that if you’re coming home from a long day of work and only have a short window of time to play Classic. I’ve gotten used to just running the game roughly half an hour before I want to play, in the evenings (US), and during the day a lot of realms are now stable. The worst of all-day-queue-hell is behind us!
