Name reservations are now open for World of Warcraft Classic ahead of its worldwide release on Monday, Aug. 26 at 5pm CT.You can now create up to three characters per account on a realm of your choosing. There are a few things to keep in mind, however. If you decide on a PVP realm, you’ll have to stick with one faction. If you’re a Horde player, for example, you’ll only be able to reserve Horde characters on that realm. For PVE realms, though, you’re free to create both Horde and Alliance characters.
To start this process, you need to open the Battle.net client, find World of Warcraft, and change the version to World of Warcraft Classic. If you have multiple World of Warcraft accounts, you may need to change that as well. Then you need to install Classic to your PC, and hit play once it’s ready for launch. When you’re in the game, select a server, faction, race, and class. You can fully customize your character’s look as well as their name. After you create your character, you don’t have much to do other than wait for World of Warcraft Classic’s Aug. 26 release date. Note that you must have a active World of Warcraft subscription to reserve your Classic characters.
Here’s the login screen once you’ve created a character and reserved a name. It’s as simple as that. And remember, you can reserve up to three characters per account. Blizzard also notes that all of your characters in a PvP server must be aligned with the same faction. That’s a fair limitation. Otherwise, you could scope out PvP targets on your Horde character and then quickly switch to Alliance for an ambush.
Blizzard will share further details concerning realm names and realm types later this week. This is crucial for players to coordinate efforts with their friends, knowing where they should go to begin their classic adventure. After the release of World of Warcraft Classic, the PvP limit will remain the same, but you will be able to create a maximum of 10 characters per WoW Classic realm, up to 50 characters across all realms in your regions. Finally, to enjoy all the features in the game, players can Buy WOW Classic Items from 5mmo.com at a reasonable price.
