Nothing is more sacred than your name in World of Warcraft. It’s the first thing players see about you, and the name your raid leader will shout when you stand in the fire and ruin the fight. Naming yourself is a task that you can’t rush, even in the excitement of Blizzard-run Classic servers. To prevent that kind of stress on day one, Blizzard opened up a piece of World of Warcraft Classic a little early. Players can now reserve their server, character class, race, and name.
Reserving your name in advance is highly recommended, because a huge influx of players is expected when WoW Classic launches. It’s not just a matter of protecting yourself from long queues and server crashes, it’s also about reserving your favorite WoW Classic aliases before other players get to them – just don’t get your hopes up about grabbing the Leeroy Jenkins name though. Blizzard also stated that character creation will be limited to one faction per realm on PvP realms.
To reserve a name, you’ll have to log into Classic with an active subscription. Pick a realm of your flavour (PVE, PVP or Roleplay) and create an adventurer. It’s not too different to making a hero today, albeit with fewer options and substantially lower polygon counts.
You’ll need an active WoW subscription to reserve your name. If you’re a regular WoW player, this shouldn’t be an issue. But if you’re coming back from a break or you’re new to the game, you’ll have to subscribe for at least one month. This will set you back $9.99, but it’s a small price to pay for the Classic experience.
Blizzard notes that anyone choosing to play on a PvP realm will only be able to create characters within the same faction – you pick the Horde, you stay with the Horde. The developer also adds that, when WoW Classic goes live, players will be able to create up to ten characters in any given realm – and up to 50 across all WoW Classic realms. For now, though, you just get the three. Choose wisely. Stay tuned to 5mmo.com and we will be the first one to inform you all the latest.
