    I started getting back into WOW recently because some noob friends of mine decided to try it out. At first I thought I'd only get to level 20 or 30 with them then get bored with the grind and quit - so instead of making my own account I made my character on a friend's account.

    He hadn't played in years, so it was fine for me to play whenever. But recently he started playing again. I want to keep playing at my leisure, but I also don't want to start over (I've gotten to level 47 so far.)

    Has anyone ever transfered a character between two different accounts? I heard it's possible if both accounts have the same information (as if 1 person owns both accounts.)
    If possible I'd like to transfer my guy to my old account, but that has been sold and banned since I last played - and I fear I may not be able to recover it.

    iirc, can be done if both accounts have same last name.

    Do you know if it's possible to change the last name to match my friend's (if/when I get my account back?) Or does it have to be signed up from day 1 with the same last names?

    Both accounts need to have the same first and last name now.

    When did that change? It used to be just the last name. I think that was for parents and whatnot with kids... so they could transfer.

    " and the last name on both accounts must match. "


    That's all it says currently.
