Blizzard’s Summer Sale:

It seems only a week ago when the last sale ended, and we already have another. Blizzard has started their Summer Sale with savings on many items within the Blizzard Store, including, Pets, Mounts, Character Services for World of Warcraft, and discounts for other Blizzard titles.

Discounts on other titles include a 35% off of Call of Duty: Vanguard – Ultimate Edition and a 50% discount on both Call of Duty: Black Ops and Modern Warfare.

For more information on all the discounts available, visit the Blizzard store, or check the store via the Battle.net app!


Character Services:

Blizzard has reintroduced the 30% discount to Character Services, importantly, the Character Transfer and Faction Change bundles.

If you are interested in transferring a character or changing Factions, now is the time to purchase the service(s). The best value is the Eight (usually six) Character Transfer/Faction change.

Instead of £60 for six characters, we now have the option of eight characters; this equates to £7.50 per Character Transfer/Faction Change, compared to £13.50* for a single Character Transfer/Faction Change.

(*) The price for a single Character Transfer/Faction Change during the sale, or £19 outside the deal.

This offer is a no-brainer if you have the funds and intend to move eight or more characters in the future. Remember, purchasing the bundles stays on the character select screen so that you can use these at any time in the future.

Pet, Mounts, and Transmog:

Also available from the shop at a discount are Pets, Mounts, and Transmog. I urge you to check out the Midsummer Night’s Pack before you consider purchasing anything, as the bundle has many Pets, Mounts, and Transmog in the sale.

Don’t worry if you already have some items within the pack, as Blizzard will automatically increase the discount (up to 67%) based on what items you already own.


WoWToken:

With the release of World of Warcraft: Dragonflight pre-purchase last night, there’s been a shortage of WoWTokens. Thankfully, I purchased 25 today, and there were still WoWTokens available at 1 pm today. However, if you experience issues purchasing a WoWToken, wait till late evening or log on early the following morning.

WoWTokens are easier to acquire when there’s no competition. To check the current value of gold for a WoWToken, check out the website: WoW Token Prices.

Consider reading my blog from last night, where I purchased a WoWToken for almost 394k gold. I was short-sighted and wasn’t prepared for the lack of WoWTokens.


WoWToken Prices:

As mentioned above, a new expansion and a new summer sale have increased the demand for WoWTokens. When the demand exceeds the supply, this forces the price of a WoWToken for gold to increase. When the news was released last night, the E.U WoWToken hit a staggering 394k gold.

As of 22:30 this evening, the current gold value for a WoWToken in the E.U region stands at 368k.

Once the supply of WoWTokens exceeds the demand, the price will continue to fall.


When Does the Sale End?

According to the Blizzard Store, the summer sale will end on the 4th of July. I’m guessing this is concerning the U.S region, as it’s reset day for them, meaning the sale may finish on the 5th of July for the E.U region.

The sale that recently ended, the E.U region had the sale for an extra day to coincide with reset day, as E.U reset day is a day later than the U.S region!

New Character Services

World of Warcraft Character Services

New Character Services:

Since the release of patch 9.2.5, there are new character services available. You may find yourself in a slight predicament once you’ve purchased your bundles if you’re unaware of the changes or the new process. 

As I’ve hinted, I took advantage of the eight-character bundle service (normally a six-character bundle), but there was a considerable delay in the tokens showing up. Sharing my experience in today’s blog may help anyone else who may experience any issues or delays.

Below for the benefit of those that are unaware, I will also walk you through the new process.


Character Transfer & Faction Change Bundles:

As mentioned above, patch 9.2.5 saw improvements to the character services available. Now we have Character Transfer and Faction Change bundles.

Previously, we went to the in-game shop, selected the character(s) we wished to transfer or faction change, selected the destination or faction, and then paid the fee. Now we purchase tokens similar to a character boost.

An icon will show up on the character screen highlighting your amount of Character Transfers or Faction Changes available. 

Click on the token to start the Character Transfer or Faction Change process.


How Much Are The Bundles?

These bundles are available in three different amounts and prices.

Character Transfers:
  • 1x Character Transfer (£13.30) £19
  • 3x Character Transfers (£25.90) £37
  • [8]x Character Transfers (£60)
Faction Changes:
  • 1x Faction Change (£13.30) £19
  • 3x Faction Changes (£25.90) £37
  • [8]x Faction Changes £60

With the ongoing 30% Special offer, I’ve added the discounted prices in brackets. Also, a reminder that the eight-character bundle is normally a six-character bundle! The offer ends on the 7th of June for N.A players and the 8th of June for E.U Players.


 What Bundle Should I Purchase?

The good thing about these bundles/tokens is that you can use them immediately or keep them for later use. Ideally, only use the money, gold you can afford to spend.

Due to my gold balance being at 129 million, I paid 1.8 million to purchase 6 WoWTokens and bought the Eight-Character Transfer Bundle.

Now, I have no interest in transferring eight characters at this point, but the bundle worked out at £7.50 each instead of the overpriced £19 for one character. When the special offer ends, it will revert back to a six-character bundle option; this will mean it will work out at £10 each, which is still an incredible deal!

So, my advice would be, if you have the funds available, consider the 8x bundle; this has a greater value in the long term!


I’ve Purchased My Tokens; where Are They?

Upon purchasing your bundle(s), log out of the game entirely and relog. Within a couple of minutes, you should notice your tokens appear on the character screen. If you don’t see your token(s) (like I experienced), you might be experiencing a slight delay while the game updates your account details! 

If you encounter any issues or have any concerns regarding a service you’ve purchased, always reach out to support. Although they’re busy, they are extremely helpful!


Things to Consider Before Transferring:

Depending on your character’s level, there are limitations on the amount of gold you can transfer.

  • Level 10 to 39 – 10k
  • Level 40-49 – 250k
  • Level 50-60 – 1m

To bypass the gold limitations, consider using The Undermine Journal (TUJ) and invest your gold in items you can purchase from your current realm that sell for a greater value on your target realm.

Be considerate of items that have unique limitations. Specific Mounts and Companion Pets can have unique limitations, meaning only one can be within your inventory at any one time.

Don’t have any Battle Pets or Heirlooms within your inventory or on your character; otherwise, this will delay your transfer until you learn or remove them.

Check out Blizzard’s Support Page for all the character transfer limitations.


Inventory Too Big To Character Transfer:

If your inventory is too large and you’re reluctant to dump most of it on the Auction House to free up space, you have two options.

Option One:

If your inventory fits into your personal bank and a 7-slot Guild Bank, consider opting for a Guild Transfer instead. You will be able to transfer 11 million gold using this method, as the Guild Bank can have the gold cap deposited.

This method will cost you £30.

You must be the Guild Master for the Guild for seven days for the transfer to complete successfully!

Option Two:

This option will consist of three or more characters you’re willing to transfer to your destination realm. With the ability to purchase a three or eight-character bundle, it’s never been a better time to move multiple characters.

Once you know how many characters you need to successfully transfer your gold or inventory, purchase the character transfer bundle that fulfills your needs.


Things to Consider Before Changing Faction:

If you currently play on Horde or Alliance and want to change faction purely to transfer items, don’t waste your token(s)! Thanks to the addition of Cross-Faction Gameplay, it’s now possible to mail gold and items to alts or a new main on the opposite faction.


Reminder:

If you encounter any issues or concerns regarding a character service, always contact support.
