Blizzard has announced it will be drastically reducing the price of World of Warcraft Classic’s upcoming character cloning service following player outcry. The price to copy an individual character so it can be played on both WoW Classic Era realms and upcoming Burning Crusade Classic realms will now be $15, down from the original announcement of $35.
All existing WoW Classic realms will be automatically converted to the game’s Burning Crusade expansion with the arrival of the Burning Crusade pre-patch on May 18. On that day, players will have to choose on a per character basis whether to play on Burning Crusade servers or to transfer to Classic Era realms which won’t progress to the game’s next expansion. Cloning a character for the associated fee allows that character to be played in both versions of the game.
