Next week, we will take multiple steps to prepare for the release of the PvP Honor system and World Bosses at 11:00 a.m. PST on Thursday, November 14. Here’s an outline of those steps.

Monday, November 11 – Updates to Free Character Moves**
At 11:00 a.m. PST on Monday, we will update the Free Character Move service.

  • Free Character Moves from all realms to Sul’thraze (Brazil) and Loatheb (Mexico) will be closed at this time.
  • Free Character Moves will no longer be available from Atiesh, Benediction, or Yojamba (Australia).
  • The following Free Character Moves will be available:
Arugal Felstriker
Bigglesworth Anathema
Bigglesworth Arcanite Reaper
Bigglesworth Earthfury
Blaumeux Anathema
Blaumeux Arcanite Reaper
Blaumeux Earthfury
Faerlina Anathema
Faerlina Arcanite Reaper

We strongly suggest that any players planning to use a Free Character Move do so as soon as possible. Free Character Moves may be disabled without warning at any time.

Tuesday, November 12 – All Realms to One Layer
With scheduled weekly maintenance beginning at 7:00 a.m. PST on Tuesday, all WoW Classic realms will be set to a single-layer. We expect some realms listed above to experience long queues after this step. We especially encourage players on Arugal , Faerlina , Herod , and Whitemane to use the Free Character Move service to avoid excessive queues.

Thursday, November 14 – PVP Honor System and World Bosses
At 11:00 a.m. PST on Thursday, the update will occur for all realms in this region. The PvP Honor system will come online, and it will become possible for Azuregos and Kazzak to spawn.

Thank you very much!

I’ve updated the original post here.

Free Character Moves from Fairbanks, Herod, Incendius, Kromcrush, Skeram, and Stalagg are only available to Horde characters.

We had some unexpected technical issues when we first enabled this service a couple of hours ago, and we’ve been working through those.

Thank you!
