World of Warcraft Character Names to Be Stripped From Inactive Accounts

World of Warcraft

It has been over a decade since we first started playing World of Warcraft and we still can’t get enough of it. When you first join-in, players are asked to choose a unique character name, however, like I mentioned the game is over decade old so getting a unique name is a bit of an issue.

Over the years many players have come and gone, but there character names remained bonded with their accounts.

But that will soon change.

For those looking for a unique character name, Blizzard has decided to make life a bit easier. Accounts that are inactive since December 7, 2010 will have their character names stripped and available to anyone looking to create a new account, or has opted-in for the paid name changing service.

The changes will be made with the release of patch 6.2: Fury of Hellfire, that will hit the public WoW realms on June 23.

Blizzard wrote in a post:

Our goal with this great name liberation is to make sure new and returning players have a large and varied pool of names available to choose from. So log in now if you wish to preserve your unused characters’ names for your ongoing journey through Draenor.

So there you have it, claim a cool name as soon as possible before they ran out of them again. For on the topic, visit the link provided above.
