Since the introduction of the Faction Change service in Wrath of the Lich King Classic, we’ve received a lot of feedback from players currently playing on locked, single-faction realms. They would like to faction change and move to the other locked realm in their region.

We’ve just temporarily opened Free Character Transfers between the two most populated (locked) realms in each region:

Gehennas Firemaw
Firemaw Gehennas

Please be reminded that the Free Character Transfer service may be closed at any time, without notice.

Hi Everyone,

Wanted to provide a quick update and give everyone a bit of notice that we will be closing down the free character moves from Firemaw to Gehennas this coming Tuesday, March 7th at 4:00 PM CET. If you have characters you’d still like to move, please do so as soon as you are able.

At this same time, we will also be unlocking Firemaw and lifting all transfer restrictions to this realm as we’ve seen a satisfactory number of total players leave to enable us to unlock the realm.

We will be leaving the Gehennas to Firemaw free moves open for a bit longer, but we may also close those down with little notice as well. Gehennas will remain locked for the time being.

Thank you!
