Common Problems

  • Can't create a character on WoW Classic realm.
  • Error: You already have the maximum number of characters allowed on this account.
  • I deleted my Alliance characters to switch to Horde but now I can't create a Horde character.

Across all realms, you can have a maximum of 50 characters per World of Warcraft account and realm type: 50 in Modern WoW, 50 in WoW Classic Era, and 50 in Burning Crusade Classic.

In addition, in WoW Classic Era, you can have a maximum of 10 character per realm and, on a PvP realm, you cannot create a character if you already have in it a character of the opposing faction.

WoW Classic Clones that you haven’t activated count against your total. You can delete clones as any other character.
