Free Character Migrations Available

By initiating one of these transfers, you will be moving your character to a new realm and home. This is a one-time, one-way move. If you wish to move your character elsewhere, you will need to use the paid transfer service.

  • Draenor / Silvermoon => Magtheridon / Bronze Dragonflight / Chamber of Aspects
  • Kazzak / Stormscale / Sylvanas / Twisting Nether => Grim Batol
  • Outland => Grim Batol / Drak'thul
  • Ragnaros => Grim Batol / Frostmane

Please be aware that, due to the unpredictable nature of free transfers, we may close down any Free Character Migrations at any time and without warning if the target realm becomes full. If you plan to move with friends or your guild, we suggest that you coordinate the effort to reduce the chance of any stragglers being left behind.

Early closures aside, this set of Free Character Migrations will end on Tuesday, February 4.

Begin a Free Character Migration now! We recommend reviewing the FAQ, as it details what is or isn't allowed for transferred characters.

    Even though I got him already, I'm glad they changed Huolon's spawn point. Some servers where getting outta hand with the trolling.

    Yeah putting a free migration from Ravencrest would be great aswell, fucking tired of the unstable servers fucking up progress......

    The Censer change is more than welcomed. Now if only Huolon will be generous and drop his mount for me. Maybe I ought to be one of those people who hit him once and end up with the mount.

    Removed comment because I didnt read it was for EU realms.

    So on the free character migrations, it looks like some servers that merged together are now high population, and you can move to a server that is a low population. How does that make sense?

    None of these EU realms that you can migrate from are merged realms. Grim Batol was merged with the Portuguese realm Aggra. Grim Batol were the home for Portguese people before they got their own realm, and since then more English players probably moved to the realm. I'm guessing that's why they are opening free migration there to balance the English/Portuguese population... or they are just clueless.

    4 sec stun ... YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and once again welcome back warbringer's stun ... even if some douches will complain about shockwave which significally has a 40s CD!!! (yeah I'm talking pvp base 1 - 1) , and stormbolt talent (which most will rather prefer to take our root breaking AVATAR) ... man it started to suck so much each time after a charge to see how it would only root.

    Blizz y u no connect Hellfire =P

    Charge was never a problem, it was pummel followed by disrupting shout that annoyed me as Resto Shaman. And I think this change is a bigger nerf for warriors who play against higher skilled healers/casters.

    sigh they will never change warrriors with all the qqrs around too many ccs, too many gaps closer, to many stuns and for the love of god remove the cc imuntity during bladestorm
