Transferring a Character too a -Full/Locked-R

Customer Support
I wasn't quite sure where to put this, but I figured this was the safest bet since this is a account/in game question.

I've transferred characters before, however. I have not transferred them too anything other than Low to Medium population, and those characters have gone through the transfers flawlessly! :D Usually took less than an hour for them too finish. I know however that it will be different for other realms with a high/full/locked population. Thus bringing me too a few questions!

I will be transferring a Character from Fizzcrank-Us too Illidan-Us. From what I've seen, Illidan tends to be locked for the most of the day ( expected from the recent release of Mists of Pandaria ), but under normal circumstances it's usually full.
I'm just a tad bit worried that since it is usually locked, if that means I cannot transfer the character over too Illidan at this time? If so, when may I be able to send said character too Illidan? :-].

My other question is, I am also going too be making this character a horde - My first ever faction change ( one of those few who just re-level a different faction! Not this time! ) -. I've read a little bit about this, not too worried about this, but still makes me ify! Will I need too faction change first? Or can I just go ahead and realm transfer, and then faction change?

That about sums up all that I wanted too ask! I don't normally spend so much money on pixels, so I am just wanting to make sure everything will be nice,dandy and okay before I do anything :-].

Thanks too anyone who replies with the answers I need!

((((hugs))) Happy Hunting!

I do believe that Illidan is currently locked for transfers on. They are offering free transfers off the realm so they would not be allowing others to transfer onto the realm currently.

It is irrelevant which you chose to do first- BUT remember to log in to the character after the first transaction is complete and before you start the second- if you do not a bug may flag your character for a name change.

Yikes! Okay! Thank you ^.^
Illidan is not currently locked for transfers on. I just transferred my rogue to Illidan on 10/6/2012.

Currently in the wait time of getting in.. waited about 2 hrs now and im on 477 out of the 4000 people trying to get in.
