Blizzard has announced it will be lowering its price for character cloning ahead of the WoW: Classic-era Burning Crusade release.

Character cloning is meant to give players a chance to enjoy their beloved characters in all manner of realms throughout the re-release of certain expansions. For example, a player can choose to either port their character to a Burning Crusade (BC) realm exclusively or clone the character so they remain in their Vanilla realm while a copy is ported to a BC realm.

Blizzard Announces Lower Cost for WoW: Classic Character Cloning

In a post on the official World of Warcraft forums published on Thursday, May 13, Community Manager Kaivax announced that Blizzard would be lowering its price to clone characters for Classic realms running patches 1.3 and 2.5 from around $35 USD to only $17 USD.

According to Kaivax, this decisions comes after receiving, "a very large amount of feedback from the [WoW] community."

"We want players who choose Classic Era realms to feel as though their choice comes with the possibility that they’ll be able to build relationships and guilds with other players they can count on," they wrote, adding, "A lower price will likely still accomplish our goals."

Players will see the new price reflected within the next week.
