Blizzard announced that it has reduced the price of cloning characters in WOW Classic to $15.00.
Earlier this month, Blizzard announced the release date for Burning Crusade Classic – the first expansion for World of Warcraft Classic. While there’s no doubt a segment of the WoW Classic playerbase that’s excited for Burning Crusade Classic, that announcement wasn’t free from controversy. In fact, there were many who took issue with Blizzard’s decision to offer a character cloning service for $35 – a decision that Blizzard has now reconsidered and walked back.
The full text is as follows:
Salute, the classic player of World of Warcraft! We want to inform you of our ongoing adjustments.
After the patch is released next week, when you log in to WoW Classic, each of your Classic characters will choose to stay between Classic Era (version 1.13) and upgrade to Burning Crusade Classic (version 2.5). For those who want to have characters in both versions, we provide a service to purchase character clones in other versions of the game.
“When you log in to WoW Classic after the patch next week, each of your Classic characters will choose between staying in Classic Era (version 1.13) and progressing to Burning Crusade Classic (version 2.5)”, the official forum post from Blizzard reads. “For those who want to play a character in both versions, we’re offering a service to purchase a character clone in the other version of the game.”
However, in the past week or so, we have received a lot of feedback from the community, so we decided to lower the price. The lower price may still achieve our goal through the new service, while allowing more players to explore the option of having characters in both the "Classic Era" and "Burning Crusade" classic servers.
After careful consideration, we decided to reduce the price of cloned characters in World of Warcraft to $15 (£12). When the service becomes available next week, you will see lower prices in the game.
As always, we are deeply grateful for the enthusiasm and consideration of the World of Warcraft community. We play "World of Warcraft" with you, and we can't wait to enter the next classic era with you next week, in the "Burning Crusade Classic" pre-patch, and we will walk through the Dark Portal with you in June.
The TBC pre-patch is scheduled to launch on Tuesday, May 18. It will introduce the Blood Elf race to the Horde and Draenei to the Alliance as well as a paid level 58 boost leading up to the grand opening of the Dark Portal on June 1.
