We're providing free transfers off of overpopulated source realms that are currently seeing high queue times. If you're on one of the below realms and would like to avoid waiting in queues to play, you can take advantage of these free transfers. We've done our best to match realm types and time zones for a smooth transfer process.
We're planning to allow the current transfers to go until approximately 9:00 a.m. PDT, October 4, but please note that if a large number of people transfer to a destination realm we may need to end the free transfers early. If you're planning to transfer we recommend doing so sooner rather than later.
Although free Guild Master Realm Transfers are not possible at this time, these free character transfers will allow you to retain your guild membership and reputation, provided the guild master completes a Guild Master Realm Transfer to the destination realm first, and does not change factions.
