Faction/Race/Server Changing

I am writing this to cover all the questions about changing factions and races that come up. I have used both services and I am using infomation from the battle net.

Cost


A Faction Change will cost you $30 plus tax where applicable...the website only lists New Mexico and Texas specifically.

A Race Change will cost you $25 plus tax where applicable

A Server Change will cost you $25 plus tax where applicable

----


Who/What/When/Where/Why


Characters open for Faction and Race changes are pretty much everyone. The major factor in Race/Faction/Server changing is Level. You may not change until you hit level 10 or for Death Knights, level 60.

There are no restrictions as far as RP Realms vs PvP Realms.
However, you cannot iniate a Server change if the Server you want is Full, getting a Free Migration To or From or its only been open for 90 days or less.

Please note, if you want to change Factions and Server, a race change (obviously) is included in the Faction change, as well as an optional Name Change.

Characters can be returned to old Factions/Races/Servers but it will require another purchase. Each purchase is a 1 way ticket for 1 character.

Details are not available for Cataclysm related Races.

What will happen to my...


...Mounts?
Race Changing: Race-related mounts like Nightsabers or Undead Horses will change depending on your race. Night Elf to Dwarf -> Nightsaber to Ram
Faction Changing: Race-related mounts will change based on the following Reputation chart:

Orc (Wolf) ↔ Human (Horse)
Tauren (Kodo) ↔ Gnome (Mechanostrider)
Undead (Skeletal Horse) ↔ Night Elf (Nightsaber)
Troll (Raptor) ↔ Dwarf (Ram)
Blood Elf (Hawkstrider) ↔ Draenei (Elkk)

The second half of this list are for Mounts that are Not Race Related. These have Faction Opposites as well:

Stormpike Guard <--> Frostwolf Clan
Honor Hold <--> Thrallmar
Kurenai <--> The Mag'har
* n/a <--> Tranquillien
Alliance Vanguard <--> Horde Expedition
The League of Arathor <--> The Defilers
The Frostborn <--> The Hand of Vengeance
Valiance Expedition <--> Warsong Offensive
Silverwing Sentinels <--> Warsong Outriders
Wintersaber Trainers <--> * n/a
Explorers' League <--> The Taunka

If you own one of the discontinued epic mounts (Ivory Raptor, Ancient Frostsaber, etc) and you transfer to a race without discontinued mounts, you will be given a random discontinued mount from another race on your new faction.

Finally, World Event mounts will transfer seemlessly. Please note Sunreaver and Silver Convenant Reputations reset when changing Factions.


...Equipment?

Faction-related equipment, which is mostly PvP gear, will be traded for the faction-specific version. All other gear will remain unchanged.

...Pets?
Non-combat pets will not be effected by any transfers with with the exception of the Argent Squire and Argent Gruntling, they will be traded, 1 for 1.

...Achievements?
All Achievements will remain intact EXCEPT Argent Tournament. The Argent Tournament gets resets. Your Achievements will be traded for faction-specific equals (For the Horde <--> For the Alliance).

...Titles?
All titles will remain intact. Faction-specific titles will be traded for their equivalent. Again, Argent Tournament titles get reset.

...Reputation?

Reputation will be swapped based on the following table:

Orc (Orgrimmar) &#8596; Human (Stormwind)
Tauren (Thunder Bluff) &#8596; Gnome (Gnomeregan Exiles)
Undead (The Undercity) &#8596; Night Elf (Darnassus)
Troll (Sen'jin) &#8596; Dwarf (Ironforge)
Blood Elf (Silvermoon) &#8596; Draenei (The Exodar)

Stormpike Guard <--> Frostwolf Clan
Honor Hold <--> Thrallmar
Kurenai <--> The Mag'har
* n/a <--> Tranquillien
Alliance Vanguard <--> Horde Expedition
The League of Arathor <--> The Defilers
The Frostborn <--> The Hand of Vengeance
Valiance Expedition <--> Warsong Offensive
Silverwing Sentinels <--> Warsong Outriders
Wintersaber Trainers <--> * n/a
Explorers' League <--> The Taunka

Silver Covenant and Sunreaver Reputation will be reset.

...Quests?

All faction-specific quests will be reset. All quests in your quest log will be dropped and quest items will vanish.
Quest lines associated with Sons of Hodir, the Shadow Vault, and the Argent Tournament will be reset.

...Flight Paths?

All your Flight Paths will be swapped for faction-appropriate paths.
Dun Niffelem, Shadow Vault, and Crusader's Pinnacle flight points are associated with faction-specific quest lines, they will not be automatically provided.

...Friends/Ignore/Arena/Guild?

Friend list and Ignore lists will be reset.

Arena teams and Guilds will be reset.

You Cannot Faction/Server Change if you an Arena Team Captain or Guild Master.

...Gold?

Gold will be unchanged, however their is a gold cap.

Level 10 to 30: 300 gold
Level 31 to 50: 1000 gold
Level 51 to 69: 5000 gold
Level 70 to 80: 20000 gold


Conclusion


This should cover all questions. Remember, there is a 3 day grace period, during which you cannot tranfers Realms/Factions/Races. It can get expensive so please, think before you jump. Here is a link to the Character Services section of Blizzard, where I got the information.

Your Pony bridal SHOULD transfer. Its considered an item and a non-faction specific item at that so shouldnt have any trouble.

thanks for the sticky.
