free character transfers available for some realms

Blizzard is working on trying to balance certain realms on the advent of the TBC launch today. Faerlina, Mankrik, and Whitemane realms can all take part in free realm transfers.

  • Faerlina can transfer Alliance or Horde characters to either Incendius or Skeram
  • Mankrik can transfer only Horde characters to either Westfall or Windseeker
  • Whitemane can transfer only Horde characters to either Anathema or Thunderfury

It’s good that Blizzard is trying to stay ahead of the population for once and work on bringing realms into more balance. Their previously very hands off approach was not helpful and has left many realms into extremely uneven messes.

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
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

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!
