Important notes!

  • If your character is a Night Elf or Tauren druid, it will be ineligible for a Race Change, as no other races are presently compatible with this class. This applies for Blood Elf paladins and Draenei shaman, as well.

  • The Race Change service will also include a complimentary re-customization. This re-customization option will allow you the opportunity to change your character's gender.

  • Achievements, quest lines, reputations, and titles associated with the Argent Tournament will not be reset or removed by a Race Change. Characters will retain their reputation levels with the Sunreavers or Silver Covenant, their associated titles, and their status as an Aspirant, Valiant, or Champion. Please note that "A Valiant of <new home city>" and "Valiant of <old home city>" quests may open up for your character, depending on its progress; this is just to accommodate your character's new race and associated home city. No overall progress will be lost.
