WoW Classic Name Reservation Begins In 4 Days


World of Warcraft is one of those games that just keeps giving, and now players will be able to relive the most historic part of the game before the expansions, with Blizzard allowing WoW Classic name reservations ahead of the full release of WoW Classic later this month.

We know that WoW Classic will run on patch 1.12 which was when world PVP events were added to Silithus and Eastern Plaguelands. All raids will be ready to go at launch, though players are going to have to work through Molten Core and Blackwing Lair before tackling AQ40 and Naxxramas again.

Blizzard has revealed that player will be able to make their WoW Classic name reservations at 08:00AM, Tuesday, August 13 Australian Eastern Standard Time.

WoW Classic Name

Players will be able to reserve just three names ahead of the game’s launch, however on release players can create 10 characters per realm to a maximum of 50 characters total, and they will not be shared with the main game, meaning players can have a total of 100 characters if that’s your thing. Co-ordinating with friends on what server to play on has also come into consideration by Blizzard, as they make all attempts to make sure players are spread evenly across all of the new WoW Classic servers.

We will release details regarding realm names and realm types later this week so you can coordinate with your friends on where to begin your adventure”, Blizzard said in a post to their official forums, “If there are high numbers of players congregating on individual realms during the name reservation/character creation process, we will post warnings about the potential for long queues on those realms, giving you time to choose alternate realms.

WoW Classic will officially launch in Australia at 8AM on the 27th of August. Check here for our full release date reveal write-up, and for more information head to the official WoW Classic website.
