Recommended realms
Normal/PvE: Chamber of Aspects, Saurfang, Terokkar
PvP: Deathwing, Vek'nilash, Xavius
RP: Steamwheedle Cartel
RP PvP: Scarshield Legion

Saurfang (normal/PvE), Battlegroup Misery, opened January 31 as a fresh realm (no migration to the realm for 90 days).

Free Character Migration (FCM)
Due to faction differences on Magtheridon, the following Free Character Migration will be available from April 8 to 14:

Horde only: Magtheridon --> Executus, Genjuros, Hakkar, Haomarush, Neptulon, Ragnaros, Sunstrider, Tarren Mill, The Maelstrom, Trollbane, Zenedar, Silvermoon (PvE)
Alliance only: Burning Blade, Burning Legion, Crushridge, Darksorrow, Frostmane, Grim Batol, Ragnaros, Ravencrest, Silvermoon, Sylvanas --> Magtheridon (PvP)

Please note: FCM is opened based on realm population tracking and analysis, not by request. If you're looking for a specific migration (from realm A to realm B), you are in most cases better off using Paid Character Transfer, or you could end up waiting for a very long time.

Paid Character Transfers (PCT)
All English realms follow the regular PCT rules, found here:

Q u o t e:
Terenas maybe?

The "r" isnt that close to "s" on the keyboard!

True, and it wasn't even supposed to be Terenas in the first place! No clue how that happened. Fixed though. :)

Q u o t e:
Why is Magtheridon such a special case?
We clearly state "FCM is opened based on realm population tracking and analysis". If Magtheridon hadn't been in need of the FCMs we have implemented over the last few months, we would not have implemented them. Regarding other realms, we may deal with them similarly, but only if we also find they are an issue following our analysis.
