Blizzard has kicked off a name reservation program for World of Warcraft Classic

World of Warcraft Classic hype is starting to build ahead of the game’s (re) release on August 26, and Blizzard has now opened up both the character creation system and name reservation on Monday, so you can try to claim your old WoW names there, or create new ones before they’re grabbed by others.

To reserve a name, you’ll have to log into Classic with an active subscription. Pick a realm of your flavour (PVE, PVP or Roleplay) and create an adventurer. It’s not too different to making a hero today, albeit with fewer options and substantially lower polygon counts. There are a couple less than you’d expect, but you can see the full list in-game or on Blizzard’s site. We wager the firm is counting on Classic appealing to more of a limited audience than Warcraft’s current iteration. Oceania has a measly two realms to share, for shame. If Classic blows up, and more players are on fewer realms, you might have to fight for that perfect name.

Blizzard notes that anyone choosing to play on a PvP realm will only be able to create characters within the same faction – you pick the Horde, you stay with the Horde. The developer also adds that, when WoW Classic goes live, players will be able to create up to ten characters in any given realm – and up to 50 across all WoW Classic realms. For now, though, you just get the three.

This is a nice bonus for active subscribers and is likely going to trigger a lot of WoW Classic fans logging on and offering a payment a little bit earlier than they originally planned to. As WoW Classic rolls out, it will be very interesting to see what kind of impact it has on the WoW subscriber numbers.
