Blizzard Confirms No Name Reservations for Upcoming Season of Discovery

Blizzard has no plans for name reservations before the Season of Discovery launch. Unlike Classic and Season of Mastery in 2019 and 2021, players won’t get the chance to secure their preferred names in advance this time.

World of Warcraft: Season of Discovery is set to launch in a few days. During this season, players will uncover fresh secrets in Azeroth, unlocking class-altering abilities. Unusual combinations like Tanking Warlocks and Mage healers will become possible. The initial level cap for the season is 25, and upon reaching this level, players will encounter a new level-25 endgame.

Prepare for a 10-player Blackfathom Deeps raid featuring revamped bosses, mechanics, and rewards. The level cap will later be raised, introducing additional endgame content.

In a Twitter thread following this, Josh Greenfield (Senior Game Producer) shares more details about the absence of name reservations. He also clarifies why the development team hasn’t released a list of realm names yet: Blizzard aims to prevent players from becoming too attached to a specific realm early on. This approach is intended to address past issues related to balance and server performance caused by player preferences.
