World of Warcraft Classic will let you reserve your name on August 12

From the time of this story’s publishing, you have precisely six days to come up with your most clever and pun-loaded moniker. That’s when World of Warcraft Classic will open up name reservations for your toons, and you’d better step up your name game. I expect to see some prime silliness out there, people.

Monday, August 12th, at 6:00 p.m. EDT is the appointed hour for name reservations in WoW Classic. Those with an active subscription or game time on their account will be able to create up to three characters and have their names reserved when Classic goes live on Monday, August 26th.

Blizzard will be releasing realm names and realm types later in the week and will be monitoring servers in the interest of providing warnings of long queue times if players end up crowding on certain realms. Players should also be aware that they can only make characters from one faction if they decide to select a PvP server. Once WoW Classic goes live, the PvP server restriction will stay in place, but the number of characters per account will not; players can have a maximum of 10 characters per server to a maximum of 50 characters across all realms in your region.

My friend won the silent auction for the Doomhammer server blade, I wonder if Blizzard would buy it back.

I’m joining on release day, names taken? no problem, find new names, i want to see the crowd in the first day, i know many won’t be able to finish first quest, it’ll take time for the crowd to move on, but it’ll be a great time to have fun and take screenshots.

But if you make your character ahead then that’s one less hoop to try and jump through on launch day.

My name isn’t super common, but I’m gonna reserve it anyway just to be safe

It’s about the only sprint that people grabbing Lolllgolas and Drizzt can compete in without a health risk.

How do we create characters without knowing the servers? Aren’t character names per server?

Unless you meant that the devs would be reveling server names later this week?

The server lists are being released at the same time

Sounds like a cluster in the making… IF I go back and play, it will be to play with some old friends. Which will obviously require planning and selecting the same server. Trying to do that in the same rush as name grabbing is just stupid. They should have published the first round of server names at least two weeks prior to the name grab competition to allow for minimal coordination. Maybe I’ll check it out in a few months after things settle down.

…and pretty sure that will be the extent of my classic journey for the time being.

The more i’m loving retail and the more i think about what wow was like at launch, i’m not ready to put up with a bunch of things actually, such as tagging, remember that?

uuugggg yea i’ll most certainly pop on here and there and once the crowd has moved on might give it a little more time too find out if classic clicks for me or not.

Right now on Earthen Ring, best wow server i’ve ever played on without question. Mature crowd all there from launch which helps so much while leveling as you’re never overcrowded but the peeps are there for end game where it counts.

It’s so nice to look over yonder oh a node, ok well i’ll get to that in a few minutes just let me finish this, oh wait need to talk to guildies for a few, oh right that node and it’s still there, so are all the mobs i need too, f’ing paradise server.

Surprisingly too, when i thought prices were over the top, they are actually better than other servers in some cases, others not so much, so as balanced as any other server i suppose.

I started checking in on prices with my home alliance server Duskwood, and my initial horde come back server Gurubashi, then found a site to use wowuction.com, open for better site if anyone knows of one.

I’m not into over stuffing my games with addons, all i use is coordinates and recount which is set to only appear while in a dungeon, to know i’m pulling my weight, over my days of being a pinnacle player (maybe :) hehe).

You might want to take the time to park your characters at an inn at least so they can save up that rested exp. Rested exp was valuable back in classic.
