Changing Realms

Changing Realms - World of Warcraft -

The official site has announced that Character Transfers are coming. At first only transfers from Arthas to Nathrezim are available but more are scheduled to be allowed at a future date:

How did you decide what realms are eligible for moves?

Characters on the 10 realms with the highest populations are eligible to move to a low-population realm. The decision to disperse the populations on these realms was made to increase realm performance and to alleviate queues.

Can I select which realm to move to?

No. Characters on eligible realms will be able to transfer to one designated low-population realm. This will ensure that the population disperses evenly. Also, we wanted to make sure guild mates and friends would all end up on the same realm if they decided to transfer.

Do I have to rename my character?

If your character shares a name with an existing character on the realm you are moving to, you will have to rename your character.

Is this a completely new realm or were players already playing on this realm?

The realms players will be transferring to are existing, low-population realms. We plan on opening new realms some time after the population disperses through character transfers.

Can my entire guild move?

Yes, however in order to move, guilds will have to disband and reform on the new realm. In addition, guild leaders cannot transfer to the low-population realms unless they transfer leadership to another guild member or disband the guild.
