Transferring your character in WoW can be done for free.

Those looking to transfer their World of Warcraft characters will need to take advantage of the transfer service.

Here is how it works:

  1. Load up World of Warcraft.
  2. Join an eligible high-population realm.
  3. Click into the Shop.
  4. Visit the services section and then hit ‘Free Character Transfer Service.’
  5. Choose the destination realm you wish to join (it cannot be a high-population realm).
  6. Joined! And your transfer is complete.

Once you have completed those steps, that should mean your WoW character has made the move across, ready for you to dive into the action.

It works very similarly to how it did in Shadowlands, when that expansion first launched.
