On Thursday, November 11 at 6:00 p.m. PST, we’re opening Season of Mastery realms for name reservation. This will give players several days to create their main character and coordinate with others before the Season of Mastery begins on November 16.

To prepare for name reservation, select WoW Classic in your Battle.net Launcher, and then ‘World of Warcraft Classic’ in the Game Version & Account list. Season of Mastery realms will appear in-game on a new ‘Seasonal’ tab in the WoW Classic realm selector.

During name reservation, you will be able to create a maximum of one character per WoW account. If you change your mind about anything after you’ve created your character, you can delete that character and create a new one on any available realm in your region. In this region, the initial realms for name reservation will be:

Location Realm Name Realm Type
U.S. East Barman Shanker PvP
U.S. East Jom Gabbar PvP
U.S. East Shadowstrike Normal
U.S. West Mutanus PvP
U.S. West Nightfall PvP
U.S. West Obsidian Edge Normal
Australia Lionheart Normal
Australia Swamp of Sorrows PvP

Please note that for name reservation, each realm is configured to allow a limited number of total characters created, and if a realm becomes full, that realm will no longer allow further names to be reserved. If realms are reaching a full state during name reservation, we may open additional realms as soon as November 12. Before opening additional realms, we will post notices in the World of Warcraft Classic discussion forum.

After Season of Mastery begins on November 16, the limits of one character per WoW account and the maximum number of characters allowed per realm will be removed.

Thank you!
