WoW Classic is almost here, and Blizzard have officially opened its doors for name reservations. WoW Classic releases worldwide on Monday, August 26 at 3:00 p.m. PDT, across multiple time zones. If you're wanting to get a good headstart, without wasting hours finding a character name, now is probably a good time to reserve yours. 

As usual, there's a few caveats when it comes to naming your character, so pay close attention:

  • Players who choose to play on a PvP realm will only be able to create characters within the same faction. This means that if you create an Alliance character, all further characters on that realm must also be Alliance characters.
  • After WoW Classic is live, you’ll be able to create up to 10 characters on any given realm and can create a maximum of 50 characters across all WoW Classic realms. This character count does not impact the number of characters you can create on the current World of Warcraft realms.
  • Characters that were created for the WoW Classic beta or stress tests will not be available to use in WoW Classic.

If you're wanting to install Classic, it's fairly simple: just open your launcher, hit World of Warcraft, and select Classic on the drop-down.
