You can purchase a Race Change to change the race, but not faction, of a character above level 10. All Race Change sales are final, and the only way to reverse the process is to buy another Race Change after a 3-day cooldown.
Pending Name Changes, Appearance Changes, or Character Transfers prevent the purchase of a Race Change.
Note: Wait at least 30 minutes before logging in. It may take up to 72 hours after payment for the Race Change to complete.
- Each Race Change includes an Appearance Change and optional Name Change. If you choose a new character name, the old name is locked from use on the realm for 90 days.
- The reputation level associated with the character's previous race is switched with that of the character's new race. All other reputations are unaffected.
- The character's Armory profile will reflect any racial, gender, or name changes.
What Doesn't Change
- Equipment, Inventory, and Currencies—some quest items will not carry over.
- Talents, Glyphs, and Professions
- Mount, Pet, and Toy Collections
- Achievements and Titles
- Flight points
- Friend and Ignore lists
- Guild Affiliation
Note: Certain race-specific quests may remain on your character, despite being impossible to complete.
