Blizzard has now opened up name reservation system

  • Nothing is more sacred than your name in World of Warcraft. It’s the first thing players see about you, and the name your raid leader will shout when you stand in the fire and ruin the fight. Naming yourself is a task that you can’t rush, even in the excitement of Blizzard-run Classic servers. To prevent that kind of stress on day one, Blizzard opened up a piece of World of Warcraft Classic a little early. Players can now reserve their server, character class, race, and name.

    To do this, you need to have an active WoW subscription or recent game time with World of Warcraft in order to qualify. If you have that, then you can get started with the following steps:

    Step 1: You need to install WoW if you don’t have it already.

    Step 2: Go to the WoW page and select World of Warcraft classic from the “Versions” page, and you will also have to select your account.

    Step 3: Pick which realm you want to play on.

    Step 4: Go to Create a Character. You are allowed to create three characters right now per active WoW account, and you will pick their class, race and faction, as well as their name which you can reserve for live release. Once you make three, if you want a do-over, you have to delete one. Once you do, that name gets freed up again, so you have to reclaim it.

    You’ll need an active WoW subscription to reserve your name. If you’re a regular WoW player, this shouldn’t be an issue. But if you’re coming back from a break or you’re new to the game, you’ll have to subscribe for at least one month. This will set you back $9.99, but it’s a small price to pay for the Classic experience. To subscribe to WoW, head to Battle.net, log in to your account, and choose a payment option. Once you’ve subscribed, you should be good to go.

    Here's the login screen once you've created a character and reserved a name. It's as simple as that. And remember, you can reserve up to three characters per account. Blizzard also notes that all of your characters in a PvP server must be aligned with the same faction. That's a fair limitation. Otherwise, you could scope out PvP targets on your Horde character and then quickly switch to Alliance for an ambush. Stay tuned to 5mmo.com and we will be the first one to inform you all the latest.
