‘World of Warcraft’ gameplay guide, tips: How to use the Paid Character Transfer and what players must remember
Blizzard has officially launched the paid Character Transfer option for "World of Warcraft: Classic." Players should keep in mind that there are several restrictions in using this feature that they need to consider before making any payments.
‘World of Warcraft: Classic’: What is the Paid Character Transfer and how to initiate
Not every player has the same opinion about paying for a gameplay mechanism within a title that they have already paid for to access. But the Character Transfer appears to be a highly anticipated and requested update to the "World of Warcraft Classic" gameplay, so there is no doubt that it will be a hit.
As its name suggests, it will allow players to transfer their characters from one realm to another within their region. On other WoW titles, the characters can be relocated between WoW and Blizzard accounts. However, this is not possible in “World of Warcraft: Classic.” This might work for the best interest of all players since, as DualShock pointed out, Character Transfers between accounts are often used as a way to steal from other WoW players.
To start moving characters, open “World of Warcraft: Classic” and proceed to the character select screen where a button for the in-game Shop can be found. From there, players can purchase the Paid Character Transfer function for $25.
‘World of Warcraft: Classic’ guide: Character Transfer has several limitations
The first thing to remember is that there is a 90-day cooldown period in “World of Warcraft: Classic.” This means a transferred character should be kept in its new realm for three months before players can initiate another transfer.
There are also restrictions in moving characters between different types of realms. Characters coming from PvE realms cannot be relocated to PvP realms. The same rule applies for relocations between RP and RP-PvP realms.
The maximum amount of gold that can be transferred in “World of Warcraft” is also limited according to a character’s level. Those in level 1 to 30 can only bring 100 gold with them. 500 gold can be transferred for characters between levels 31 and 50. Lastly, those that reached levels 51 to 60 can relocate as much as 2,000 gold.
