Lower populated WoW Classic Servers are coming. Yesterday, Blizzard posted on their forums that they’ll be opening new servers on Monday, August 26, 2019.
The excitement for WoW Classic has been off the charts, so it’s not surprising that Blizzard is opening new servers. Now is the best time to coordinate with friends on where you want to play.
If you’d like to reserve your character name now you can. Blizzard is allowing players to reserve up to three characters before launch. Once WoW Classic is live then you may have 10 characters per realm. This can help you plan to play on lower populated WoW Classic servers.
You’ll be allowed to create 50 characters on your account. It doesn’t affect Battle for Azeroth, so you can have 50 characters in both.
Player vs. Player (PvP) servers are limited to one faction. So make sure you know which server you’d like to play Horde or Alliance on. A lot of new players will be joining us on our adventure in Azeroth, so it’s certainly an exciting time.

Why is Blizzard urging players to lower populated WoW Classic servers? Well, you may want to consider moving to a lower populated WoW Classic servers if you’re going to have a profession. On high-populated or full servers there will be competition for resources. In WoW Classic you’ll want to have a profession.
Some professions will require you to mine ore. Every player on your server shares the ore that you mine. It will be difficult to mine as much ore as you want if you’re not on lower populated WoW Classic servers.
Also, questing may be difficult. Although Blizzard is implementing layering and they said they have a “contingency plan in place” should the need arise for more servers, please be aware questing in WoW Classic is different from retail WoW.
Unless you’re on lower populated WoW Classic servers, tagging mobs could make it difficult for you to receive credit for kills. In a high-populated zone, this could be a problem if there are too many players going after one target. This could also rob you of valuable loot if too many people target the same mob.
Honestly, all players are free to choose what kind of server they wish to play on. So if you don’t move to a lower populated WoW Classic servers, be aware of the consequences of playing on a full or high-populated server. You’re going to have fun either way. See you in Azeroth!
