Common Problems

  • How much does a Character Transfer cost?
  • What happens to quest progress, items, achievements, collections?
  • How can I move a character? Can I move it to a different account?

The Character Transfer service allows you to move characters to other realms, different World of Warcraft accounts, or from one Blizzard account to another. You can purchase a Character Transfer in the World of Warcraft in-game shop. Each type of transfer has a shared three-day cooldown. WoW Classic character transfers have a three-month cooldown.

Note: WoW Classic Characters cannot be transferred between accounts.

This service takes up to 24 hours to complete. If you log in before the transfer is complete, it may fail and your character will be locked.

If you also selected a faction change, please review the Faction Change effects.

If you are looking for information about free migration, please review the Free Character Migration Eligibility and Limitations.
