After publicly stating a while ago that they would not do this, Bliz has announced in their forums they are working on Faction change mechanic for players who want to switch. Here is a link to the European WoW forums with some Q&A by a Blue.

This topic is a mine field. People who are against it seem to be very against it and people who are for it seem, for the most part, quiet on the subject. It would be interesting to read something longer than a short forum post with some well thought out discussion.

Here's my indecisive answer to the question: Paid Faction Change

Given that I went from a Shaman main with a druid alt on horde to... a shaman main with a druid alt alliance midway through TBC, let me be the first to say "fuck yes!".

It's another one of these "artificial barriers" to people playing with other people.

Not a whole post on the subject, but I did give it a quick mention here:

Here is my viewpoint as a person who has rerolled and established characters on a different faction already.

My post might be a little different from what you suggested, but I've tried to participate in my own way.

I've been curious about the same question, and posed it to my readers here:

http://azeroth.metblogs.com/2009/07/21/ ... e-faction/

I don't have a lot of answers yet for myself or from the people I've polled, but I'm curious what it would take to make people change their faction. I've been hearing stories of entire raiding guilds planning to change faction because of racial bonuses or population levels on their server, but not too many other people.

I just couldn't resist doing a bit of rambling on the subject.

Nice article. When quoting someone exactly, remember to add the source.

i.e. Transcribed from your blog post:
“After publicly stating a while ago that they would not do this, Blizz has announced in their forums they are working on a Faction change mechanic for players who want to switch. Here is a link to the European WoW forumswith some Q&A by a Blue.

This topic is a mine field. People who are against it seem to be very against it and people who are for it seem, for the most part, quiet on the subject.”


Remember those are my words from the orginal shared topic post not yours. And a link back might be a nice idea.

My thoughts on fun and benefits from faction changes.

One a general note, when mentioning the shared topic, should I link to Blog Azeroth? Since people can't really check this forum unless they register anyway...is there some general page on the Shared Topic that I have missed?

Greetz!

Well I did link back here to the shared topic...but i'll throw some linkage your way as well. I just like to include the shared topic in the beginning of my shared topic posts to get me rolling. :)

I've been asked by many folks if, since I am now horde-side full time, if I'd bring over my former main so I could again enjoy all her fabulous vanity pets, raiding achievements, and the motorcycle I miss so much. Ultimately, for her, I decided no:

But for my shaman with maxed jewelcrafting, to whom I am so much less attached, it's a yes.

Nope, not me. I play both sides, so changing a faction one side to another seems rather pointless to me.

Coming from someone who had numerous 70's in TBC on the Alliance, re-rolled Horde, leveled those same classes up to 70 a 2nd or 3rd time and wanted to pull my hair out.. yes.. yes I would. If this feature was available about a year ago, Blizzard would have made a pretty penny off of my wife and I.

Also, very late, but here is my response:

As much as I love lore, I like this change.
