Character Transfer

Do you want to switch realms to better fit your playstyle, or to join your friends? The Character Transfer service enables you to move any of your eligible characters onto another realm in the same region, or to a different Battle.net account registered under your name.

Here's how it works:

Step 1 - Select Your Character

Connect to your Battle.net Account, select your World of Warcraft account and click the "Character Transfer" button under "Character & Guild Services". Then choose the character you want to move to a different realm. You can move your character to a different realm, account, or both.

Step 2 - Choose Your Destination

Type and select the name of the destination realm. You can also choose to change faction at the same time for an additional cost, by ticking the appropriate checkbox.

You can follow the status of your transfer from the History/Status tab.

Step 3 - Ready to go!

Once your transfer status is marked as "Complete", you can log in to World of Warcraft to find your character in your faction’s capital (Stormwind for the Alliance, Orgrimmar for the Horde) on your newly chosen realm. Congratulations!

Keep in mind that only characters above level 10 are eligible for a Character Transfer, and that your character may not be available for some time while the Character Transfer completes.

You will find more details about this service in the Character Transfer FAQ.
