Transfer your character data after realm or name change


3 months ago


It is now possible to transfer your character Progress, M+, Karma data, Videos after name or realm change.

Note: this is a temporary solution, it will be fully automatic soon

How to transfer data after realm/name change?

1. If possible, before changing realm/name, claim your character on WoWProgress using Battle.net Sync. If you already transferred, skip this step.

2. Do the transfer, wait until Battle.net updates your character list and then Sync again so that your new character is also claimed (if sync doesn't add your new character, you need to wait up to a couple of days).

3. Make sure that the new character page is up-to-date (use "Update Now" button if necessary).

4. Open /profile/transfer form, select your source and destination characters, do the transfer on WoWProgress.

5. Your character Progress, M+, Karma data and Videos will be transferred to the destination character. If the destination character already has the data, everything will be combined for highest result.

6. Data from source character will be removed.


Q: What if I didn't claim my source character before changing realm/name?

A TLDR: YOU STILL TRY TO USE THE TRANSFER FORM, YOU SHOULD CLAIM YOUR CHARACTERS, DO NOT MESSAGE KERNEL UNTIL YOU CLAIMED YOUR CURRENT CHARACTERS.

A: Most of the times if you claimed your current characters, your old character will be detected automatically. But sometimes it is not possible. In this case, Join our Discord and send WoWProgress links to old and new characters to #transfer-help channel.

    Can you make it more obvious on the phantom character page that they transferred? Right now it's not very obvious that character has transferred somewhere else. The old character page looks the same as the new.

    Good suggestion, now there will be pointers for new transfers.

    I wish the bnet sinc would actually work for me, I keep trying it since about two weeks but it just never works. I already tried unlinking my accounts multiple times and the error keeps telling me to retry without unchecking any boxes (which I never unchecked to begin with)

    Does this apply to faction changes as well? Will all my times be transferred over?

    If you only change faction, you don't have to do anything. If you change realm or name, you have to transfer your data.

    Adding note: your WoWProgress account email address should be confirmed in order to do Battle.net Sync.

    Still asking same question as others - are you going to bring back the listing of alts on characters? Would be really useful.

    Still thinking in what form it should return. Many people got upset by this feature.

    what do you mean by claiming? i only see a "save" button... is "save"the claim we are talking about here?

    If you see all your characters after your used "Battle.net Sync" button, then you have claimed them.

    Is there a way to *hide* that a character transfered/the new name & realm? Like the 'hide alts'-thing.

    How does this update work for guilds? Our guild just transferred realms but only our normal TOS progression is showing. none of our heroic progression is recorded which is going to make it difficult to recruit. I have done the steps to update the guild on both realms but nothing changed. Is there anything I could do different?

    I recently transfered my char from Stormrage to twisting nether but i messed up here and made it look like i transfered from twisting nether to stormrage.As a result my mythic data cant be transfered and for some reason all the mythics i did the 1st week after the transfer do not appear here.Also when i try to fill the transfer form and i choose my toon and move to twisting nether i get a message saying 'there are no destinations available',is there anything i can do to fix that?

    I never transferred servers, name-changed, or did anything related to altering my toon/guild/race and yet, for some reason, I can't get any of the keys I have ran post 7.3 to show up. I have tried updating, which is current, but I am obviously missing something. Can anyone tell me what it is?
