World of Warcraft Classic hype is starting to build ahead of the game’s (re) release on August 26, and Blizzard has now opened up both the character creation system and name reservation system as of last night, so you can try to claim your old WoW names there, or create new ones before they’re grabbed by others.
Reserving your name for WoW Classic is vitally important for those who have been running the same name for a long time. Thankfully, the option to reserve your name in WoW Classic is already available, ahead of the game’s official release on August 26.
To reserve your WoW Classic character name, you’re going to need to have an active subscription or some game time on your World of Warcraft account. You will also be allowed to create up to three characters per WoW account before the game fully releases. There are, of course, some things that you will need to know.

First, you will need to make the character on whatever realm you want to play on. You should keep in mind that if you choose a PvP realm, you will only be able to create characters within that same faction. After WoW Classic goes live on August 26, you’ll be able to create up to 10 characters on any realm, with a maximum of 50 characters on all WoW Classic realms. Any characters created during the beta or stress tests will not be available in the full version of WoW Classic.
Now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s talk about how to go about reserving your WoW Classic character name.
First, open up the Battle.net desktop application and select World of Warcraft in the game menu.
Next, look for the version option and then select World of Warcraft Classic. If you have multiple WoW accounts, you will see a second dropdown option to choose the account that you want to work off of.
With WoW Classic chosen, go ahead and install the game. When it finishes installing, launch the title and then select Create a New Character. Now you can choose your faction, class, race, and name.
