Common Problems

  • There is no Free Character Transfer available for my realm.
  • Can you move my character for free?
  • I missed the option to move to another realm for free, can you help?

Free Character Migration is a free service to move a character to and from select realms. It is offered when there is a need to balance realms population. If a time limited Character Migration is available, it will be announced on the official World of Warcraft forums.

Apart from occasional Character Migrations, Free Character Transfers are available to move characters from WoW Classic Seasonal and Hardcore realms. This transfer is final and cannot be changed or reversed.

Blizzard Customer Support cannot provide Free Character Transfers.
