Common Problems

  • Can I claim a WoW token after my gametime expires?
  • Can I use token if have no gametime?
  • Can I use token if my account is inactive?

You can activate an inactive World of Warcraft account from the Character Selection screen in one of the following situations:

  • You have enough gold on one character or realm to cover the cost of the token
  • You have a WoW token purchased with gold in one of your character's inventory on the World of Warcraft account you're trying to activate
  • You have a WoW token purchased with gold in one of your character's inventory on a different World of Warcraft account on the same Battle.net Account

WoW tokens can't be claimed for use on different Battle.net Accounts. If you have a token or gold in your mail or guild bank, it isn't currently considered part of your gold by the system, so it can't be claimed from your character selection screen.
