Character name reservation for WoW Classic opens next week on August 12 at 22:00 GMT / August 13 at 00:00 CEST. Players with an active subscription or game time on their World of Warcraft account will be able to create up to three characters per WoW account and have the name(s) reserved before WoW Classic releases worldwide on August 26 at 22:00 GMT / August 27 at 00:00 CEST.
We will release details regarding realm names and realm types later this week so you can coordinate with your friends on where to begin your adventure. If there are high numbers of players congregating on individual realms during the name reservation/character creation process, we will post warnings about the potential for long queues on those realms, giving you time to choose alternate realms. Also please note: Character creation will be limited to only one faction per realm on PvP realms.
After release, the number of WoW Classic character that can be created per WoW game account will change to the following limits:
A maximum of 10 characters per WoW Classic realm.
A maximum of 50 characters across all WoW Classic realms in your region.
Only one faction per realm on PvP realms.
There is no overlap regarding character limits with World of Warcraft, so if you have 50 characters in Battle for Azeroth you can create 50 more characters in WoW Classic.
WoW Classic’s worldwide release is almost here so it’s time to get started organizing and planning your path to level 60!
This is awesome news, server names later this week. HYPE
Nice this was what I wanted to know!
I wanted to figure out what realm to create the characters on!!

Thanks for the information :D classic is closing in!!
mm okay 10am tuesday for me, hype hype i cant believe theyre taking so long to release the realm names though, youd think it would take a bit more than a couple of days for people to organize everything huh?
I don't really care about character name, I have a lot of options. However realm names might be interesting.. Most obvious names are already used up and I guess they won't name Classic realms after characters/places from expansions. Maybe they could name them after dungeons and therefore everyone would end up in SFK or MC..
I used to play Warn, human mage on The Maelstrom EU <Ashbringer | Rachell's Angels | Entrophy | Relentless>
I have a wow token sitting on my account so I think I'm just going to activate it on the 25th somewhere (If it works). So excited :D
I'd love realms names to be specific to vanilla stuff, Hogger, Goldshire, Deadmines, Wailing Caverns, Van Cleef, Scholomance, Feralas, Shadowfang, etc.

So by this week I'll decide the server I'll be in.
And remember, this 8 of August, we all meet again to PvP at level 5.
I think we will see the typical names for servers that we always have had, but new ones.
will someone make a list which servers will or should be horde or alliance sided? that would make things easier, because right now i have no clue in which realms to make my name reservation. if they use the same names like twisting nether, sure, that's an easy choice then.
