I have seen some people in the past mention that it can be seen as manipulating the economy regarding this topic. What about a different scenario too: If I transferred over to buy Edgemasters that cost less on a different server with the intention of using them on my original server (not selling, so no manipulation of economy).
    Does anyone have any first-hand experience with this?

    Thanks in advance!
    manipulating the economy usually involves RMT with third parties and has absolutely nothing to do with server transfers and the AH

    Retail was a term created/used by private server players when they did not have an option to pay to play a vanilla version of the game and now they do.

    Welcome to retail.
    Im aware the theory is if he HAS the gold in retail to spend

    Not everyone who plays classic plays retail

    Level 31-50 can transfer with up to 500 gold
    Level 51-60 can transfer with up to 2000 gold

    Characters cannot transfer from PvE realms to PvP Realms and RP realms cannot transfer to RP-PvP realms.
    Wow, is it really 90 days on classic but only 3 days on retail, or am I somehow mistaken that it's 3 days on retail?

    You are correct. Classic is 90 days, Retail 72 hours. "You can transfer a character from a realm to another once every 72 hours. "

    It was a month a year ago, so at least a month on retail. 30 days I believe. Or was that faction? I did both in one go.

    I guess the guy above is right, nvm me!

    30 days cd applies on character if you change it from an account to the next. Glad we got that sorted

    Not quite there is a 72 hour cooldown that prevents you from using any other services for that char in Retail transferring the char has a 30 day cool down while Classic has a 90 day cooldown

    Certain character services trigger a 72 hour cooldown preventing additional services for that character. If a character is transferred to another account, that character will not able to perform an account or realm transfer for 30 days.

    In WoW Classic, a character can only transfer once every 90 days.

    This cooldown period cannot be bypassed by Customer Service.

    Thanks all for the replies! Bit odd that it's such a huge difference for classic. I played back in vanilla but can't remember when realm transfers were implemented (if it was during vanilla or after I mean).

    Hold up, if I'm reading that correctly, it's only 30 days (on retail) if you transfer the character to another account. If you don't, is it not then "only" 72 hours?

    Edit: I'm kinda derailing the thread here so I'll stop, as people have pointed out that on classic the realm transfer cooldown is 90 days.

    You guys pointing out the cooldown...he's not transferring the same character BACK, he's using a different one. So it doesn't matter. This will work as he said (unless he transfers from pvp to pve) so have fun.

    Isn’t this basically what limit and method did with boes? And it makes Blizzard $$ so most likely they aren’t against it.

    Welcome to retail.
    What the person you quoted is saying is you can use retail wow gold to buy tokens into $15 bnet balance, each, into classic realm transfer. The whole retail/classic thing is a nonissue and is irrelevant to the conversation but if you want to carry on, classic is an official private server.

    Sure, but even blizzard calls classic, classic and how else are you supposed to distinguish the two? Oh thats right youre annoying and just arguing semantics because your bored and your life is hollow.
    Let's look at the test results. You are a horrible person. It says right here, you're a horrible person. We weren't even testing that. Don't let the horrible person thing get you down though. Science justified your parents choice to abandon you.

    You can only transfer 2k gold over with a level 51+ character, doubt that there are that many servers where edgemasters sell for less than 2k. But if you are lucky go for it.

    A lot of broke people in this thread talking about how $50 is a lot of money.
