- Can't create a character on WoW Classic realm
- Error: You already have the maximum number of characters allowed on this account
- I deleted my Alliance characters to switch to Horde, but now I can't create a Horde character
You can have the following maximum number of characters across all realms on a single WoW account:
- 60 in Modern WoW
- 50 in WoW Classic Era
- 50 in Wrath Classic
In addition, in WoW Classic Era realms only, you can have a maximum of 10 characters per realm and, on a PvP realm, you cannot create a character if you already have in it a character of the opposing faction.
Some realms are considered over-populated and are locked for character creation. For details on what realms are locked, visit the forums.
