Race Change

Keywords:

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.

What Changes

  • 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
  • Quests
  • Flight points
  • Friend and Ignore lists
  • Guild Affiliation

Note: Certain race-specific quests may remain on your character, despite being impossible to complete.
