Common Problems

  • I receive an error when I try claim my name in WoW Classic
  • "That name is unavailable" when I try to claim my character name in WoW Classic

Character creation on WoW Classic opened on Tuesday, August 13.

If you have an active subscription or game time you can create and reserve the names of up to three characters.

  • If you receive the error "That name is unavailable" it means another player already reserved that name on this realm, or this name is not allowed in WoW Classic.
  • If you receive the error "Active game time is required" even if you have game time, it means you have selected the wrong WoW Classic account.
