The Race Change service

A Race Change is a paid service that was first available on October 27, 2009. Characters can change their race for $25 (USD) but not the faction.


What changes

  • Each Race Change includes an Appearance Change and optional Name Change services. If you choose a new character name, other players cannot use the old name on the realm for 30 days. You can create a new character with the old name within that time if you want to keep it.
  • The reputation level associated with the character's previous race is switched with that of the character's new race. All other reputations are unaffected.
    • Note: Allied Race reputations are neutral. Converting to or from an Allied Race will have no effect on those reputation levels.
  • The character's Armory profile will eventually reflect the changes.

What doesn't change

Note: Certain race-specific quests may remain on the character, despite being impossible to complete
