How to reserve your WoW Classic character name

If you’re as excited about WoW Classic as we are, then you’re probably already chomping at the bit to get in and reserve your WoW Classic character name. The good news is, reservations are now open, right now, and we’ll walk you through everything that you need to know to get started.

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. In addition, our site 5mmo.com has a large quantity of safe World of Warcraft Classic Gold For Sale.

Blizzard’s blog post for the name reservation feature comes with a few important things to consider before creating your character. During this reservation period, you can only make three characters, so choose wisely. When the full game launches, players can make up to 50.

Players who choose to play on a PvP server can only make characters of their given faction on that server. For example, if you play Horde on the Fairbanks server, you won’t be able to make any Alliance characters on Fairbanks.

Finally, players should talk to their friend groups before creating these characters. Many of Blizzard’s recent cross-realm quality of life changes aren’t in place for World of Warcraft Classic. Pick your realm and faction with your friends before you make any decisions in World of Warcraft Classic, or risk not being able to play with them.
