In a blue post on the official forums, Blizz let us know that they would be releasing realm names before the weekend to allow friends and players to coordinate with one another!
can you customize later? I don't think there was a barber shop in vanilla, was there? You might have to pay for a change.
Nah he means you reserve a name creating a character as soon as you can and then on release you specify for yourself what look you might want for it, delete your char with reserved name and create a new one.
Or just log in today, figure what you want your character to be and look like, and write it down. Then you're ready for character name day and can grab your name within a minute
I already have done that on my main, my alt is still in flux as I can't quite make up my mind on Warlock, Priest or Paladin.
I didn't think about just making a random to get the name & then delete later & make a new too with the name. That could be faster. I swear if I have to use special characters I'm going to scream!
There is one problem. There is a good chance to get bored with look of your char before name reservation is up
This. If I remember correctly even after deleting a character the name is locked out for a few days before anyone else can claim it.
Tonight is the night.
Where are we meant to go to reserve our names? am i right to believe we log in as if we were logging into the stress test?
I think you log onto the server in-game and create your character on the realm.
In my experience, the majority of Alliance want to quest and raid, Horde on the other hand do that and world PVP.
Sadly a lot of the time world PVP = killing an enemy while they are already in combat or are 5 levels lower than you,
and that's why players join PVE realms.
This is THE reason I'm rolling PVE. I find corpse camping by somone 10 lvls+ so detestable. If there was a PVP server where you couldn't engage in combat with someone > 3-5 levels lover than you, I'd roll that. No matter how many people you coordinate, no about of lvl 20's are gonna take down that 60 rogue 1 shotting people questing in RR. But if the rogue was only 5 levels up, you could easily get a 3v1 going to take care of the issue.
I know dishonerable kills became a thing, but that doesnt solve the issue :D
@blizzard make a wuss pvp realm with a pvp level difference cap.
