    logo-wow-warcraftBlizzard shocked the World of Warcraft community yesterday with this announcement:

    We wanted to give everyone a very early heads-up that, in response to player requests, we’re developing a new service for World of Warcraft that will allow players to change their faction from Alliance to Horde or Horde to Alliance. There’s still much work to do and many details to iron out, but the basic idea is that players will be able to use the service to transform an existing character into a roughly equivalent character of the opposing faction on the same realm.

    When I first heard about the announced faction transfers I immediately had mixed feelings about it. The positives, as Blizzard pointed out, are that if you have a character of the opposite faction (let’s say Alliance) that you aren’t playing because your new friends are playing Horde, you can now revive that character and transfer it to the Horde. For me personally, I know someone who is die hard Alliance that I’ve wanted to play with but all my toons are Horde. If I wanted to, I can now transfer one of them to that server so that he is ready to switch factions when the service becomes available and I will be able play with my friend over there.

    Sounds pretty good, right?

    The only real negative that came to mind was that you’d have Horde Night Elves and Gnomes running around with Alliance Orcs and Undead. That’s just not right. But as I read the Blizzard announcement again, I see that it says “transform an existing character into a roughly equivalent character”. While this is a bit vague, it makes me think that we may have to change races as well. I can only hope.

    I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject. Leave a comment and let me know where you stand on this topic.

      Looking forward to changing my Dwarf hunter to Horde.
      Although, I'm hoping that comes with a Race Change, as walking around Undercity as a Dwarf could get strage.

      Another thought is, what happens to my mounts?
      I have Horses, Rams, Nightsabres and Elekks, do they change too?

      Good question about the mounts. I imagine that Alliance mounts would have to change over to the Horde equivalent.

      Like Horses into Undead Horses etc?

      I just dont see Blizz letting us have Gnome horde characters, riding around Orggimar on a Mechanostrider…

      Exactly. They would have to have a conversion system set up where Nightsabre = Kodo, Elekk = Hawkstrider..etc.
