Cataclysm Paid Faction and Race Changes Available at Launch
Many people have been asking the ever important question of when they’ll be able to convert their existing characters into Goblins or Worgen after Cataclysm hits shelves on December 7th. It was previously believed that there would be a month or two delay to prohibit players gaining the race first achievements, but that isn’t the case afterall!
Blizzard today have announced that all players will be able to use paid faction and race changes immediately once Catacylsm is released, Realm First achievements for leveling a class to 85 will remain however there will be no Realm First Achievement associated with leveling characters of a specific race.
Goblins and Worgen do have some small changes to the way that paid services work for them, these races must not be located in the Lost Isles or Gilneas zones when initiating the process.
