Toward the end of August, European CM Vaneras had announced the closure of a few English-speaking EU servers
due to the great success of their Russian localization
, with a note that destination realms for free character transfers would be announced later on. Later on is, apparently, last night
. Thundgot has posted the destination realms, and each set includes one that is part of the same battlegroup as the realm of origin.
- From Molten Core you can transfer to Burning Steppes*, Deathwing, Dentarg
- From Shadowmoon you can transfer to Boulderfist, Spinebreaker*, Xavius
- From Stonemaul you can transfer to Ahn'Qiraj, Burning Blade, Jaedenar*
- From Warsong you can transfer to Auchindoun, Bladefist*, Haomarush
If you call one of the four closing realms home, I strongly recommend you go research
your options and choose your destination while you still can. If you haven't moved yourself somewhere by the time their nebulous deadline (post-patch 3.0.2) hits, you'll have your destination chosen for you when the realms are ultimately brought down. Make sure you end up somewhere you'll like.
