Recommended Posts

As was already teased/mentioned, with he latest path adding functionality for paid character transfers we now have the feature actually enabled! You can transfer your Classic characters as you would on retail, with a significantly smaller gold cap depending on level, and PvE characters can't transfer to PvP realms. The price for the transfer is $25/25€.

Paid Character Transfers are now available for players in WoW Classic who are looking to relocate their characters to a different realm within their region. There are a few things to keep in mind before you take the leap into making a home on a new realm.

  • Each transfer has a ninety-day cooldown.
  • Gold transfer limits specific level ranges are as follows:
    • Level 1-30 can transfer with up to 100 gold
    • 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.

 

Ready to make the move? You can find the Paid Character Transfer service by launching WoW Classic and clicking the Shop button on the character select screen.

They just put it out earlier, transfers came with patch 1.11 aka the nax patch, and considering classic is set to 1.12 from the start you could also say it's late!

Looked it up, and you're right! My mistake. I thought the paid character transfer was a 2.0 BC addition (like summoning stones).

I am concerned of the execution, for example transferring people to places like Herod that are still multi hour queue-levels of full on raid resets would be a problem, because I expect those queues to be in full swing at minimum for BWL release. They were pretty awful at BG release too, and still randomly have shorter queues at peaks (15-30 minutes at 7 PM on a sunday)

1k is a lot, but I know more than a dozen people on my server with very close (if not over) 10k. Collecting it is a mini-game to them to keep them playing between content releases.

It's always been #SomeChanges ever since WoW Classic was announced. I mean its called WoW "Classic" and not "Vanilla". The player base has changed dramatically since the days of Vanilla and to just copy and paste the same product with not even the smallest tweaks would've been a bad idea. For example, back in the dark ages people were a lot shorter than today. So if someone wanted to refurbish a centuries old building into a museum like structure without changes the doorways would make you have to crouch to get into anywhere. Better off raising the door height to provide a more aesthetically and comfortable experience.

1000 / 2000 gold is a lot in vanilla, but at the same time you need every little bit of it,. A single raid day with full consumables is between 200 and 400g with Gehennas EU prices, depending on whether raid lasts 2h or less, or goes above.

Then you add in mounts (~1000g), gear (1500g Lionheart, 1200g Edgemasters, 2000g Cloudkeepers, 6000g Sulfuras, 7000g Thunderfury and so on) and it quickly spirals out of control.

Made almost 19k gold so far (10k liquid, 9k on bags according to TSM accounting) but when you take into account the spending requirements listed above, it is only barely enough to fully deck out my character, and every raid day drains the pool immensely 😞

The most puzzling thing is not being able to transfer from PvE to PvP realms. Guess it is to protect the economy, somehow?

I think it's because people on PvP servers got ganked on the way to 60 so they don't want people leveling 1-60 on a PvE server then transferring to a PvP server in order to skip that.  It's one of those "I did it so you have to as well" types of things.  I personally rolled on PvP servers and think it's fair but I can see how PvE players wanting to transfer to play with their friends might not think so.

      We have a real special one today, as a new and very specific method of speed leveling has resulted in a new record for assisted 1-60, clocking in at 19 hours and 10 minutes! You'll definitely want to hear about this particular record, however, as the method used was pretty crazy, and we get to check it out in full with a video.
      While getting from 1-60 did take only 19 hours, the setup is very extreme and requires multiboxing... multiboxing 81(eighty-one) different characters to help with the leveling of the one going for the record. That's right, Maguno (Javy) multiboxed a staggering 13-16 characters at the same time to assist in tagging and taking down mobs in different level brackets. But that's not all, as all of those characters were somewhat well twinked, to be optimized for kill time on the mobs and not too much downtime for healing etc. Maguno leveled and twinked the 81 characters in self in preparation, and used some previously farmed Troll Necklaces and ZG coins to level faster at certain level intervals.

      The multibox aid starts at level 3, after he heads to Stormwind to pick up some gear for the levels ahead, and the start of the video is well worth watching for the details and the beginning of the multibox experience! The full journey has been sped up into 29 minutes so definitely also skip through and check out some of the multibox action.
      While some might have a problem with this method of leveling, it's still pretty great that player are finding some strange and pretty extreme ways to beat whatever target they envision for themselves, and that's always a good thing. The sheer amount of  dedication and time spent (not to mention the actual setup fot he various level brackets, twink items etc.) is impressive, no matter what anyone thinks of the goal or result, so congratulations to Maguno (Javy) on executing his plan!

      WoW Classic has plenty of hidden internal cooldowns, and today we'll be looking at some of them, as GideonAI has made a video and compiled a list of the more interesting ones based on Discord user fusionpit's datamining. We have some big ones in focus, including the 2 second Hand of Justice CD, the 10 second Dragonbreath Chili CD and the giant 4 minute cooldown on the Primal Blessing bonus from the Thekal set. The video highlights some of the more prominent ones, but you can also check out the full list under it, courtesy of GideonAI!

      We haven't heard of Hycran for some time after he completed "Insane in the Membrane" in Classic, but now, the player's back with the Scarab Lord title and  21 Exalted reputations out of 22 on the Horde side.
      The final 22nd reputation is Bloodsail Buccaneers, and that would require 25 days of /played and repeatedly killing Jazzrik in Badlands, which is a single mob with a  5:30-8:30 variable respawn timer, so he decided not to pursue that reputation and ignore it.
      Here's what he had to say about it all.
      Anyway, huge congratulations to Hycran on this impressive feat!

      Blizzard have responded to player concerns about a bug with the Improved Weapon Totems Shaman talent, as it does not actually provite its attack power bonus to players in the Shaman's group. Blizzard clarified that even though this is exactly how the talent worked throughout all of Vanilla and was fixed in BC, they will be making a hotfix to it, as it's clearly not intended behavior.

      The other big thing to come from this blue post is the fact that they will be doing similar bug fixes for other issues that weren't necessarily addressed during Vanilla's time, but are clearly unintended, in an upcoming update.

      Hi All,
      I just wanted to chime in and provide a bit of context around this issue, and an update on our plans for it.
      The current behavior of the Improved Weapon Totems talent actually does match 1.12 and the reference client, and this talent behaved in this way for its entire existence during original World of Warcraft. It was, however, recorded as a bug shortly after it was introduced late in 2006 and was fixed very early in Burning Crusade. Since this is a clear bug that was fixed relatively quickly in the original game, we do currently have plans to fix this (as well as several other issues that were similarly bugged in original WoW but were clearly incorrect behavior) in an update coming in the near future.
      Hang in there, enhancement shamans!

      We've already seen the Alliance take down the deep breath queen with only 3 players, now it's time for the Horde to have some fun as well! It seems around 40-50 minutes is the sweetspot for downing Onyxia with 3 players, as all the kills took about that long. The Horde compositions are set for all three videos, as Warrior, Shaman, Hunter is the go-to for 3-manning the dragon lady, which is the faction swapped equivalent of the Alliance kill we covered, which just had Paladin instead. If you want to see further humiliation for basically WoW's first raid boss, you can check out 33 druids killing her, 33 hunters taking under a minute to down her or even naked raids taking her down.
      So let's take a look at 3 videos of 3-man Onyxia!

      The last one is also the most recent, and the title is misleading as it is not the Horde first kill, but it's still impressive!
