World of Warcraft players frustrated by long queue times will be given the chance to jump ship, for free, to another realm.
Blizzard is offering free character migrations, but only for the following specific transfers from high-demand servers to less populated realms:
- Area 52 -> Turalyon
- Stormrage -> Turalyon
- Tichondrius -> Blackrock
- Illidan -> Blackrock
- Bleeding Hollow -> Korgath
- Darkspear -> Korgath
You can take advantage of this offer on Battle.net. The transfers will only be avilable for about a week, or until the destination server is filled.
Unfortunately it looks like the scheme has ground to a halt temporarily; according to an update to the announcement of this offer, Blizzard is aware of issues and is investigating.
