    WoW Random Name Generator

    Hi there, I couldn't manage to log into the WoW-Europe forums for some reason, so I'll just ask here instead: where exactly is the built-in WoW name generator? I can't see it anywhere on my screen, nor can I find any information about it other than mentions when Googling for names.

    Cheers,
    MushroomBomb

    Any name generator will do it.

    I always thought this would randomize my character like the button under the detail selection

    Well, that kind of explains why I couldn't find it. Or, well...

    Could you show me a screenshot of that? Since my character creation screen looks identical as MushroomBomb. I miss the button too. (Would be really useful when I got troubles thinking of a name)

    There is no in-game random name generator to the best of my knowledge.

    There's an in-game random name generator. At least for US versions of the game there is. If you can't see it; *puts on GM hat* Try deleting or renaming your "WTF", "Interface" and "Cache" folders in your World of Warcraft directory.



    See above image for the "Randomize" button.

    Re: WoW Random Name Generator

    Is this a US-only feature? Can anyone confirm whether this exists for EU too?

    Re: WoW Random Name Generator

    I don't have it in my inlog screen and i have never had it, reinstalled my wow several times aswell (it might be an add-on?!)

    Re: WoW Random Name Generator

    As far as I can tell it is a US only feature
    (Also heard that the US version can let you have numbers in your name)
    "We are not in Azeroth anymore"
    *1 months later*
    "We are back in Azeroth"

    Re: WoW Random Name Generator

    It's indeed an US-only feature.

    Had an US account before I moved back to Europe.

    Bought an EU account, and there was not such a thing at any point since vanilla.

    ...Never seen numbers, but the random name generator has been on the US version since vanilla. Perhaps it was omitted in the EU releases due to localization problems for something so tiny?

    That's simply because Europeans are able to figure out what to name their character without help from the computer.

    I guess either (international) laws could be a problem (like someone's real name being randomly generated).
    Or the different languages used. (As far as I know, US mainly uses the same language).

    Re: WoW Random Name Generator

    It's not useful anyway half the good names it gives you are taken lol.

    I love the jealous Europeans making excuses as to why they don't have a random name generator Don't you think a more plausible reason is that because of the multiple languages spoken throughout Europe it would be redundant to make random names for all of each language?

    That is not a plausible reason, as the European version has localized language packs for each major region it is available

    Re: WoW Random Name Generator

    Why would you want a random name in the first place.

    If I had to play with randomly named characters it wouldn't really feel like "my" character.
    Scars show you the remnants and failures of the past.
