Reserved Name

I'm thinking about xfering this toon to Arthas (Horde) to play with my brother over there and was looking for a new name. I thought of a name that I wanted, but it's being held by a level 1. What's the deal with that? Is there a way to force a "release" for an active character?

Please open a ticket. A member of the Game Master staff will investigate for potential release of the name.

You can petition a GM, and see if the name can be freed.

There is a bunch of things that can prevent it, if the persons account is active, etc..

Most you can do, is put in the ticket, and cross your fingers.
