World of Warcraft Classic is about to enter The Burning Crusade, and that means splitting the throwback MMO’s servers between the new expansion and a pure, vanilla experience. But if you wanted to clone a character between both, Blizzard was hoping to charge you a fairly hefty $35 fee.
The cost has in fact been lowered to € 15. Here is how the change was justified on the official forum, in the words of Kaivax, community manager:
This service – giving the player a copy of their character on another game – is new to us. Initially, the pricing was based on how other optional items and services are already priced.
“However, over the last week or so, we’ve gotten a very large amount of feedback from the community, and we’ve decided to lower the price. A lower price will likely still accomplish our goals with the new service, while allowing many more players to explore the option of playing characters on both Classic Era and Burning Crusade Classic realms.”
Of course, Blizzard can charge whatever they see fit for those kinds of services but having the whole launch of Burning Crusade Classic tagged as a “cash grab” by a huge number of players does not make any favor to the game, especially considering that you are already paying a subscription to play and that the content is not new at all. Whatever the case, Burning Crusade Classic is bound to be a success and there are a lot of players that have been preparing for its launch for weeks already. It does not seem that Blizzard is intending to launch patch 9.1 for Shadowlands anytime soon either, so it’s quite likely that a majority of World of Warcraft players will cross the Dark Portal again to visit Outland.
World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic, we remind you, is currently in beta and will be officially released on June 1 at midnight Italian time, while the pre-expansion patch will be released on May 19. In addition, two premium packages will be available for purchase with the patch, the Dark Portal Pass for € 39 and the Deluxe Edition for € 69. However, the purchase of these editions is optional: it is in fact sufficient to pay the monthly fee to have access to all versions of World of Warcraft.
WoW Classic: The Burning Crusade arrives on June 1st, and players will get to choose which of their characters will step through the Dark Portal starting with patch. Thankfully, it should now be a little less expensive if you don’t want to commit a character one way or the other.
