If you live in the EU or the UK, the cost of all World of Warcraft account services is going up next month.
Two weeks ago, Blizzard raised the price of Hearthstone card packs in the EU and UK, in response to what it called, “local and regional market conditions.” Now those same conditions are being cited as the cause of increases to World of Warcraft account services planned for the first week of April.
The services include name changes, server moves, and other things, including the WoW Token. Blizzard said in the post announcing the change, “We carefully review the prices of our games and services in all currencies on a regular basis, and we occasionally need to make changes based on regional market conditions.”
You can see the full list of changed prices at the link above, but here are some highlights:
- Character transfers: from €20 to €25 / £19
- Name changes: from €8 to €10 / £9
- Race changes: from €20 to €25 / £19
- Character boosts: from €50 to €60 / £49
As you can imagine, players are not happy about this change, with many saying that the service were too expensive even without the hikes. If you want to get any of these services before the prices go up on April 5, Blizzard has them on sale through April 4 for 25 percent off.
You can find all the prices and info on the official World of Warcraft website
