Free World of Warcraft Realm Transfers Offered as Queues Continue to Grow

Posted on September 28, 2012 AT 03:45am

Blizzard has offered free realm transfers to certain World of Warcraft servers as queues continue to grow following the launch of the game’s latest expansion, Mists of Pandaria.

“We’re providing free transfers off of overpopulated source realms that are currently seeing high queue times,” said Blizzard’s community manager. “We’re planning to allow the current transfers to go until approximately 9:00 a.m. PDT, October 4, but please note that if a large number of people transfer to a destination realm we may need to end the free transfers early.”

“Although free Guild Master Realm Transfers are not possible at this time, these free character transfers will allow you to retain your guild membership and reputation, provided the guild master completes a paid Guild Master Realm Transfer to the destination realm first, and does not change factions.”

The offer is only available to eight Realms and players can only move to a predetermined server, the full list is below:

From: Frostmourne (Oceanic – PvP)

To: Gundrak (Oceanic – PvP)

From: Illidan (Central – PvP)
