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.

In addition, faction-specific quests and achievements won't be converted to their counterpart in the new faction. As a result, you will need to complete the War Campaign on your new faction, even if you already completed the opposite faction campaign.

If your character has changed factions more than once, you will still need to complete the campaign again on your new faction - even if you've completed it on a previous version of that character on the same faction.
