Free realm transfers to lower-population servers

It's that time of year again -- the time when certain realms are filled to the brim, making them nigh unplayable. The release of Cataclysm has hit specific U.S. realms hard, and Blizzard is offering to help balance out population issues. To make life easier on these servers, Blizzard is offering free realm transfers to lower-population servers.

The high-populations realms are:
  • Barthilas (Oceanic-PvP)
  • Blackrock (US-PvP)
  • Frostmourne (Oceanic-PvP)
  • Illidan (US-PvP)
  • Kel'Thuzad (US-PvP)
  • Kil'jaeden (US-PvP)
  • Tichondrius (US-PvP)
The destination realms are as follows:
  • Altar of Storms (US-PvP)
  • Arathor (US-PvE)
  • Fenris (US-PvE)
  • Garrosh (US-PvE)
  • Grizzly Hills (US-PvE)
  • Gul'dan (US-PvP)
  • Gundrak (Oceanic-PvP)
  • Nazjatar (US-PvP)
  • Shattered Halls (US-PvP)
  • The Forgotten Coast (US-PvP)
Blizzard has stated that while these transfers are still free, they are subject to end once the destination realms fill up. So if you or your guild are planning a move, you should start now to avoid any complications. Most questions on free realm transfers should be on this handy FAQ. As always, a realm transfer to any of the ones not listed still requires a paid character transfer.
