“World of Warcraft” is an immensely popular online role-playing game, with over 11 million players worldwide. Some players may have characters on more than one account. Having multiple accounts can be expensive, but you may be reluctant to simply cancel one and lose the time and effort you put into leveling your characters. The game doesn’t allow you to merge two accounts but you can transfer your favorite characters from one account to another.

Visit and log into your "World of Warcraft" account.

Click the "Manage Game" button beneath the "World of Warcraft" image.

Select "Paid Character Transfer" from the "Paid Services" menu on the right side of the screen. On the next page, click "Continue."

Select the realm that contains the character you wish to transfer, using the drop-down menus.

Click "Move Character" next to the name of the character that you want to transfer to your second account.

Click the checkbox in the Character Transfer Form to move the character to a different account. You can also choose a new realm for your character at this point from the drop-down menu, if you want, or you can choose the same realm.

Enter the email address or user name of the target account in the text box beneath the checkbox. Enter it again to verify that it is correct. Answer the security question for your account and click "Enter."

Type "I AGREE" into the text box when prompted to indicate that you agree with the rules governing an account transfer. Enter the method of payment that you want to use to pay for the transfer, and click "Submit."


As of 2009, the price for a single character transfer was $25. Both accounts must be in your name or the transfer will be denied. Your character's mailbox and auctions must both be cleared before you can initiate a transfer. Check the status of your transfer by logging into your account, clicking "Paid Character Transfer" and clicking "Transactions." The status of any pending transfers will be displayed at the bottom of the screen.


Characters may not be transferred from trial, suspended or disabled accounts.
