Classic name reserves

#1 Unread post by Castile » Mon Aug 12, 2019 10:07 pm

Hope everyone got their names and realms today - seems a lot didn't.

From an Oceanic perspective (and we only get TWO realms) the pvp one had all the issues - randomly booting people to a US server, not telling them and they made toons. Only having to try to delete and get back into oceanic without getting disconnected. Thank frick I picked pve - got my names no issue.

But if you'd like to join the whine - reddit thread here:

Welcome to the true Vanilla experience :lol:

Got the names I wanted, was very lucky and must have logged in at the very second the realms went live, hardly had any wait time and beat the queue rush.

For those that aren't aware, like I wasnt. You MUST have an active sub going in order to get to the Character Screen for Classic and make a character.
Ended up grabbing a token for 147k :l Euuugh but oh well.

Siggy under construction!

It took me 30 mins for the login server to stop timing out and booting me off. I was resigned to the fact my names would be gone by then, but they (Wain and Mhu) were still available on the Oceanic non-PvP realm.

Like Veph, I logged in right at the start time, and saw the realms were still locked. She was persistent and kept trying until they unlocked and got her names. In contrast, I decided that it must be a client issue (because I'd logged in before the start time) so I decided to try restarting it. That was a bad mistake, since it took me so long to get back in :P

I'm really glad after all that you got yours! I don't know what compelled me to try the [Locked] realms anyway at first, I was just so eager and started clicking like "let me inn!!!" and then it worked and I was shocked haha.

Here's the three I got for myself. So glad I got Jawa, he's going to carry on the tradition of being an Enchanter / Engineer (probably Gnomish specialized), and if they ever add Cataclysm in the future, he can race change into a Goblin :)

Oh yeah, I never actually mentioned the names I saved, but I got Vephriel (of course), Morticia (for my forsaken warlock), and Lemmy (my dog's name, I just thought it might be cute if I need another alt). :) All on Bloodsail Buccaneers because RP realms are the only ones I'm interested in playing on.

I managed to login right at the beginning but it kept giving me errors when I tried to save, had to log back in, but got lucky and got three of the names I wanted, tho one I wanted was already taken. Ah well I'll check for it again as time goes on. ;)

It's a shame there's no worgen :) I have two worgen characters I created and named in memory of a pair of labradors I took care of for a friend, and became like my own for a while.

I don't remember only being able to have 3 characters? I just reserved Ankelbiter for a gnome rogue and wanted to reserve a name for a warrior too but only allowed 3 characters?

The limit of 3 is only for the name reservation period. You will be able to create more characters once the servers go live.

Oh me neither haha! I got Tsukino (warrior - my original vanilla character), Nadeshiko (priest and most likely classic main) and Castile my Tauren hunter.
I also nabbed Sakurie (druid), Tsurani (paladin) and Chibiusa (warlock) on my second account - all on oceanic Remulous realm.

I managed to get all three names I wanted on Remulos. I'm actually stunned they weren't taken because I joined the name reserving a wee bit late (two days after they opened XD).

- Lazona (my original Dwarf Hunter before she was name/racechanged at the tailend of Wrath - now going to act as my bank alt)
- Remington (Main Hunter)
- Silverstar (Feral Druid)

Just eight more days =)
