Blizzard is shutting down World of Warcraft Classic’s character clone service on July 26, after a little over a year of availability.
The paid service allows players to make a copy of a WoW Classic character of their choice based on a “snapshot” of that character as they were on May 18, 2021. All players were given the option on a per-character basis prior to the release of Burning Crusade Classic last summer of whether or not to keep that character on what Blizzard now calls “Classic Era” realms or to progress to Burning Crusade. For players who couldn’t choose, character cloning let them do both for a small fee.
Blizzard didn’t give a specific reason for why the service is shutting down in its official blog, but character cloning will be on sale for $5 (66% off) until July 26. For players who haven’t made a choice for each of their character on whether to progress to Burning Crusade Classic or stay on a Classic Era realm by July 26, Blizzard says all characters will be moved forward into Burning Crusade Classic, with the Classic Era version of those characters being deleted.
