Character Clone Classic service

The Character Clone service

A Character Clone was a paid service that let the player copy a character from Burning Crusade Classic or Classic Era into the other classic server.

Originally, this service was only available as part of the Public Test Realm as a "Copy Character" button in the Character selection screen.

The service was retired on 26 July 2022.[1]

  • Activating a clone is irreversible. Once a clone is activated, it cannot be deactivated
  • A clone is a snapshot copy of your WoW Classic character taken right before the Burning Crusade Classic pre-patch
    • Includes your inventory, items in the bank, items in the mailbox, and friends list
    • Characters created after pre-patch are not cloned. This means you cannot activate the clone of a Draenei or Blood Elf character on a Classic Era realm. By extension, you cannot activate the clone of an Alliance Shaman or Horde Paladin on Classic Era realm
    • Any game progress you make on the Burning Crusade Classic Progression realm after pre-patch will not translate to Classic Era
    • Characters you deleted before pre-patch are cloned and can be activated, as long as you can undelete the character
  • You can hide deactivated clones from your character selection screen. However, a deactivated clone still counts against your total character limit on your realm
    • You can delete and undelete clones as any other character
  • Activating a clone on a Classic Era realm type does not give you a choice of realm
    • Your character will remain on the same realm it was before pre-patch. For example, if you played on Ashbringer in WoW Classic, you can activate your character on Classic Era Ashbringer, or on Progression Ashbringer, or pay to activate both
    • If you want to transfer to another realm, you can purchase a Character Transfer service from the character selection screen
  • It is not possible to transfer a character (either a clone or a newly created character) between a Progression realm and a Classic Era realm
    • You can transfer a Burning Crusade Classic Progression character to another Burning Crusade Classic Progression realm
    • You can transfer a Classic Era character to another Classic Era realm
  • Characters activated on a Classic Era realm are all guild-less, including Guild Masters. On Classic Era realms, all guilds must be recreated.
