Monday, November 11 – Updates to Free Character Moves
On Nov 11th at 11:00 a.m. PST Blizzard will update the free character transfer service. If you are planning to use the free transfer service they strongly advise using it as soon as possible, Because transform service may be disabled at any time without warnings.
Free Character transfer details:
- Allowed free character transfer paths (at the end of this article)
- Free Character Moves from all realms to Sul’thraze (Brazil) and Loatheb (Mexico) will be closed at this time.
- Free Character Moves will no longer be available from Atiesh, Benediction, or Yojamba (Australia).
Tuesday, November 12 – All Realms to One Layer
With scheduled weekly maintenance beginning at 7:00 a.m. PST on Tuesday, all WoW Classic realms will be set to a single-layer. We expect some realms listed above to experience long queues after this step. We especially encourage players on Arugal , Faerlina , Herod , and Whitemane to use the Free Character Move service to avoid excessive queues.
If you don’t know what is layering in Classic, You should read our article on it but basically it is another instance of the realm. Due to layering, players from the same realms but different layers can’t see each other unless they get into the same party. Blizzard is limiting its max layers count per realm to one, therefore, some high populated realm such as Arugal, Faerlina, Herod, and Whitemane will experience long queues.
Thursday, November 14 – PVP Honor System and World Bosses
At 11:00 a.m. PST on Thursday, the update will occur for all realms in this region. The PvP Honor system will come online, and it will become possible for Azuregos and Kazzak to spawn.
Allowed Free Transfer Paths:
