- Can't create a character on WoW Classic realm
- Error: You already have the maximum number of characters allowed on this account
You can have the following maximum number of characters across all realms on a single WoW account:
- 60 in Modern WoW
- 50 in WoW Classic Era
- 50 in Wrath Classic
In addition, on WoW Classic Era PvP realms, you cannot create a character if you already have a character of the opposing faction on that realm.
Some realms are considered over-populated and are locked for character creation. For details on what realms are locked, visit the forums.
