The World of Warcraft®: Burning Crusade Classic™ Character Clone service will soon be cycled out of the Battle.net® Shop. The service will be on sale until its retirement, and you’ll be able to get a Character Clone for up to 66% off to keep those characters active on both Burning Crusade Classic and WoW Classic Era realms.
For a refresher on how Character Clones work and which characters are eligible to use this service, refer to our Playing Ahead: Making Choices in WoW Classic blog post.
What is the Character Clone Service?
The Character Clone service allows you to activate a copy of one of your WoW Classic characters, restored from a point in time just before the Burning Crusade Classic pre-launch update on May 18, 2021, on either a Burning Crusade Classic realm or a WoW Classic era realm.
To clone your character, simply log in to Burning Crusade Classic or WoW Classic—wherever you would like your cloned character to become available. Any characters that are eligible for the Character Clone service on the character select screen will have an appropriate icon. Some restrictions do apply; you can read about them in our support article.
When is the Service Being Retired?
The Character Clone service will be permanently retired on July 26, 2022. After that date, any locked clones will be removed from their respective realms and will no longer be available.
What Happens if I Don’t Make a Choice?
If you haven’t made a choice for any of your characters since the last time you logged in to either WoW Classic or Burning Crusade Classic, those characters will be moved to Burning Crusade Classic. The Classic Era version of the character will be permanently deleted and unavailable for cloning.
