In order to help players prepare for overcrowding coming with the launch of Northrend content on Tuesday, we’ve enabled the following Free Character Transfers.
While we intend to keep these Free Character Transfers open through the next two days and until the launch of Northrend content, we strongly encourage players who wish to use a Free Character Transfer to do so as soon as possible. Free Character Transfers may be closed without warning as we continue to evaluate the populations of realms.
