I was wondering about heirlooms also. Is this finally a way to transfer heirloom items to your cross faction characters? I'm thinking give the heirlooms to a level 10, transfer faction, then give to whatever characters you have on that side. Actually I have some low level Alliance characters on another realm, so I'd have to start a new hordie, give him the items, transfer faction and then realm. Costly, but still, at least potentially possible.
Hmmm this is interesting. I am pondering on whether to level a tauren pally when cataclysm comes out or simply switch to alliance and then switch back to horde and instead of turning him into a BE, just highlight the tauren option which should be available by then :DOR just use the race change service when it comes out? The way you wanna do it, it will cost you $60, the alternative would be $30 or less. I'm fairly sure that by the time the next expansion comes out, race change will be possible.
Awesome now i have to wait before my Blood Elf dk can become a Worgen DK, fantastic. and i don't even care about being world first lvl 80 worgen...i just want to play a worgen DK! >=/least i can transfer my hunter, but id prolly just roll a worgen warlock and lvl him up until my dk can become a worgen =/
If you would pay 30$ for this you play way to much wow.
$30 - Yuck!
Well that was unexpectedly fast
If you would pay 30$ for this you play way to much wow.It's not too different from paying $14.99 a month to play the game. ;)
oh i see what it really is it lets you change an 80 from one faction to the next not the race so we wont see orcs fighting for the allies or a dwarf killing gnomes so it just lets you see what the other faction is like without having to start from lvl 1, but really if u dont have an alt for either horde or alliance your not getting your moneys worth out of the game in my opinion.
goodbye, alliance. hello real faction.
So the Crack Heads Brain Boxes at blizzard all sat around a table one day and said'Hey, how can we sort these server imbalances?'Some snorting thinking later...'Hey, lets let them fix it, they can choose which faction they want to change to''Oh yes, this will sort server imbalance for sure'(big anime smiles all round)5 months later...'Wait, all servers are now 99% - 1% ratio, how did this happen?'It does say that on some servers, the process may be only one way, and completely unavailable on others.Just like there are sometimes free transfers or restrictions on server transfers.
The 30$ fee is an inhibition threshold, therefore it can't be a ripoff. ;-)In fact, if you claim it's a ripoff, you are actually proving it's necessity in some way... *gg*
Just have to wait for it to come to the EU servers!
Do you get to transfer servers with this at the same time or does that require payment for both faction and server change?
If you would pay 30$ for this you play way to much wow.I have seen people post similar sentiments before about transfers who have been playing since release, have posts showing the overkill PC they bought for WOW, and/or brag about their raiding superiority.I look at the $30 this way, if you think its too much money it is you should not be playing WOW. $30 is barely a nice dinner for two, if one at they really good places. Meaning, if your in the position of where $30 is a deal breaker then perhaps you need to concentrate on something other than the game and get your financial position to the point where spending $30 isn't something you worry about. I mean, get real, $15 a month plus the cost of the internet service, and everything else? I am doing this with a server transfer as well - for three or four characters.
Right now, it looks like this is only on American WoW, as I can't see anything about it on wow-europe yet... Any ideas on when European WoW will get it too?
I'm so glad this day has come, along with being able to have horde and alli on the same pvp server. $30 is nothing...unless you're addicted to Oxy. Then you're scrounging around for another $35 or so to find an OC 80.
this is a cool idea....wish they would of done this before I leveled the same class again on my newer server but guess I still can do it to my lock :)
Gief Faction Change on EU...My horde friend quitted Wow, so I can't wait untill I can turn my Belf lock into a Human or a Gnome :)
bring out for eu now... :)
What will happen to the character's flight paths when I change its faction?All flight points associated with the character will be reset and you will receive a new list of flight points which are appropriate for the level and new faction.30$ to get every flight path in old world at 60? yes plz
