Blizzard has just shared in their content preview that Dire Maul will arrive with the reset of October 15th, separately from the rest of the Phase 2 content to give players more to do in the game. The rest of Phase 2 will be released in late 2019. We will keep you updated on WowClassicCountdown.com!

News Update (October 5, 2019)

We currently plan to open all the free character moves. Thank you for your patience!

When these free character moves open, player-characters at any level will be able to move:

From – To – Region
Shazzrah – Dragonfang (new realm) – English
Golemagg – Dragonfang (new realm) – English
Firemaw – Earthshaker (new realm) – English
Gehennas – Earthshaker (new realm) – English
Mograine – Judgement – English
Razorgore – Bloodfang – English
Sulfuron – Finkle – French
Lucifron – Heartstriker (new realm) – German
Venoxis – Heartstriker (new realm) – German

For approximately one day, the new realms will be restricted to only those players using a free character move. After one day, any player may create new characters there. This is to allow players using the free character move service a better chance at retaining the name of the character they’re moving.

Please note that restrictions apply:

A character cannot move if the character:

  • is a guild leader.
  • has active auction listings or bids.
  • has mail.

You may be required to change your character’s name once you’ve reached the destination realm.

This is a one-way, irreversible move.

During periods of high usage, free character moves may take up to several hours to complete. This service may be closed at any time, without warning, should a destination realm become full. We strongly encourage players who wish to use this service, especially in coordinated groups, to do so as soon as possible.

We will let you know when the new realms open and free character moves are enabled.

Thank you!


There have also been a few changes to destinations for French and German realms.

Sulfuron – Finkle – French
Lucifron – Heartstriker (new realm) – German
Venoxis – Heartstriker (new realm) – German
