    Transfering character from account to account?

    Hi.
    I am wondering how this transfering character from 1 account to another account?
    Does the account need to stay under the same email address / account name etc?
    My mate has a character that I want to buy from him, and we do not have the same account names, emails etc everything is diffrent.
    So I am wondering if I need to change my email to match his? Or he to match mine etc.
    Also does any1 know how long it takes to do the transfer etc?

    This can get you banned, and both of you may lose your accounts.

    if his name is John Carter your account needs to also be named John Carter.. you don't need the same email

    Why would it get us banned?

    That is why you could get banned. Selling toons/accounts is against the tos.



    this thread will most likely be locked soon.

    Because selling characters is illegal. It's in the terms of service and has been since Vanilla lol.

    Good luck though.

    Which means absolutely nothing. It wouldn't matter if it was your twin brother, your account is your account, his account is his account. Characters can not go between them.

    as long as the last names on the 2 battle.net accounts are the same, you will be able to transfer characters between the 2 accounts.

    Did you have diffrent ip addresses + diffrent accounts?
    Did you only change account name?

    I call BS. It's not that easy to change your account name. They normally only do that if you've been married or divorced or had some other reason to legally change your name and they'll require proof.

    Because family members never fight and that's never caused issues before.
