Common Problems

  • Can you remove the cooldown so I can race change?
  • Unable to transfer character, it says "Transferred Too Recently"
  • Want to bypass the cooldown for a faction change

Certain character services trigger a cooldown preventing additional services for that character. Cooldown periods cannot be bypassed by Customer Service.

In Modern WoW, most cooldowns are 72 hours. However, if a character is transferred to another account, that character will not able to perform an account or realm transfer for 30 days.

In WoW Classic and Burning Crusade Classic, a character can only transfer once every 90 days. Free migrations are not subject to this limitation.

A Character Boost applies a 72 hours cooldown period during which you cannot start a Character Transfer. For Modern WoW, it also applies a 72 hours cooldown to a Faction Change or Race Change.
