Faction Change nun auch in Europa verfügbar

Nachdem der Dienst zum Wechsel der Fraktionen bereits für 30 Dollar in Amerika vor einiger Zeit an den Start ging, zieht nun auch WoW Europe nach. Ab jetzt ist es möglich für 25 Euro zwischen den Fraktionen zu wechseln.

Also aus Horde kann nun ein Allianzchar, oder umgekehrt werden.  Die gesamten Achievements, Mounts etc. gehen dabei natürlich nicht verloren, sondern werden in das entsprechende Gegenstück eurer neuen Seite umgewandelt. Der ganze Dienst hat einen 60 Tage Cooldown und beinhaltet zudem eine komplette Charakteranpassung samt Namenswechselmöglichkeit.

Etwas später soll dann noch der neue Rassenwechsel möglich sein, der abermals kostenpflichtig sein wird.

Faction Change FAQ part 1

Further information on this service can be found in the Faction Change FAQ part 2 and in the Faction Change section of our website.

What is the Faction Change service?
Our Faction Change service is designed to allow existing characters the opportunity to change their designated faction (from Horde to Alliance or Alliance to Horde).

How do I begin the Faction Change process?
To begin the faction change process, please visit your Account Management page, select the „Faction Change“ option and carefully follow the instructions provided.

How much does this service cost?
Each faction change costs 25.00 Euros or 20.00 Pounds.This covers a single faction change for a single character.

Can I change multiple character’s factions at once?
No. The Faction Change service only allows one change per transaction. If you would like to change multiple character’s factions, you will need to pay for each one separately.

At what level can I change my character’s faction?
Characters level 10 and above are eligible for a faction change.

Will PvP realm restrictions prevent me from changing a character’s faction?
No. PvP realms no longer possess any faction-based restrictions. You may now play Horde and Alliance characters on any realm you wish.

Will this service allow me to customize my character and select a different name once its faction has been changed?
Yes.  Each faction change purchase will also provide the target character with an included re-customization and optional name change.

When I change factions, can I select any race for my character?
You may select any race of your new faction provided that it is available for your character’s class.

Does that mean I can use this service to change my character back to its original faction?
Absolutely; however, this will require purchasing another faction change.

When I change my character back to its original faction, can I select any new race?
Yes. As noted previously, though, you will only be able to select a race that is available to your character’s class.

Will I be able to select Cataclysm races and class combinations for my character once they’re available in game?
Details are not available at this time. As development continues, though, we hope to provide more information.

How often can I change a character’s faction?
You may change your character’s faction every 60 days.

What happens after I initiate a Faction Change?
Once your payment has processed and after you have remained logged out of the game for at least 30 minutes, you will see a new button to the left of your character’s name upon next login. Clicking on this button will allow you to select your character’s new faction and race, as well as customize your character’s look and name. These steps will greatly resemble the character creation process.

To complete your faction change, press the „Accept“ button and confirm your selections. If you do not wish to change your character’s faction immediately, you may do so at a later time.

What will happen to my character’s old name?
If you opt to change your character’s name, the name will be locked from use on your realm for 90 days. You are not required to change your character’s name, though; this is simply an option we provide included within the faction change.

What will happen to my character’s equipment when I change its faction?
Equipment which is not considered faction-specific will remain unchanged by this process. Faction-specific equipment, however, will be automatically exchanged for a cross-faction equivalent. You can view a full list of faction-specific equipment and their cross-faction equivalents here.

**Please note that neither enchants nor socketed gems will be affected by an exchange.**

Will the rest of my inventory (materials, alternate currency, etc) be affected in any way?
As with equipment, items which are not considered faction-specific will remain unchanged by this process. Faction-specific items will be exchanged for a cross-faction equivalent. You can view a full list of faction-specific items here.

What will happen to my character’s mounts when I change its faction?
Mounts which are not considered faction-specific will remain unchanged by this process. Faction-specific mounts will be exchanged for a cross-faction equivalent. You can view a full list of faction-specific mounts and their equivalents here.

What will happen to my character’s non-combat pets when I change its faction?
Non-combat pets will not be affected by this process and will be available once the character’s faction change completes. This even includes faction-specific non-combat pets.

What will happen to my character’s achievements when I change its faction?
Achievements which are not considered faction-specific will remain unchanged by this process. Faction-specific achievements will be exchanged for a cross-faction equivalent. You can view a full list of faction-specific achievements and their equivalents here.

What will happen to my character’s titles when I change its faction?
Titles which are not considered faction-specific will remain unchanged by this process. Faction-specific titles will be exchanged for a cross-faction equivalent. You can view a full list of faction-specific titles and their equivalents here.

What will happen to my character’s reputation levels when I change its faction?
Upon changing factions, the reputation level associated with your character’s previous race will become the reputation level of your new race. All other racial reputations will be converted according to the following chart:

Orc (Ogrimmar)  ↔  Human (Stormwind)
Tauren (Thunder Bluff)  ↔  Gnome (Gnomeregan Exiles)
Undead (The Undercity)  ↔  Night Elf (Darnassus)
Troll (Sen’jin)  ↔  Dwarf (Ironforge)
Blood Elf (Silvermoon)  ↔  Draenei (The Exodar)

Additional faction-specific reputations will be converted into their cross-faction equivalents (if a cross-faction equivalent exists). You can view a full list of qualifying faction-specific reputations and their equivalents here.

Faction neutral reputations will not be affected by this process, and faction-specific reputations which do not possess an equivalent will be lost.

Will I keep my Argent Tournament achievements and quest lines?

No. Please note that all achievements and quest lines relating to the Argent Tournament are reset when a character uses the Faction Change service.
