Common Problems

  • Will I keep my progress if I buy a Faction Change or will I have to start over?
  • My quest log was cleared when changing factions
  • Paid a faction change and I lost my progress towards Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder
  • I earned A Nation United in the Alliance and was not converted to Zandalar Forever!

Any quests in progress will be abandoned when you change factions, and all quest items in your inventory will be destroyed. If you want to complete a quest you had in progress prior to completing a faction change, you must visit the quest giver to pick the quest up again and start progress over.

Progress on most achievements will also reset when changing factions.
