Blizzard Releases Race Changer for WoW

After putting countless hours into World of Warcraft, some players may be tired of their characters. Instead of starting over again just for a change, Blizzard is now offering a paid race changing service. For just $25, you can change your race as long as you stay in your faction of Alliance or Horde.

Mind you, this is different from the Faction Change service, which costs $30. The following details com from Blizzard's Race Change FAQ:

What is the Race Change service?
Our Race Change service is designed to allow existing characters the opportunity to change their designated race while staying in their existing faction (Alliance or Horde).

Can I use the Race Change service to change factions?
No, faction changes are handled separately through our Faction Change service. For more information, visit the Faction Change FAQ.

How do I begin the Race Change process?
To begin the Race Change process, please visit the Account Management page, select the Race Change option, and carefully follow the instructions provided.

How much does this service cost?
Each Race Change costs $25.00 USD (not including applicable taxes). This covers a single Race Change for a single character.

Change your race right here.

Tell us, WoW players, are you changing your race?

    Pay for this, pay for that. Now that's what I call money well spent...Anyway, can't be angry at them. If someone is stupid enough to pay 30$ for that, he deserves to loose it. Too bad those types of people just don't die from starvation after spending all their money on such things.

    You'd think as much money as blizzard rakes in (15 bucks a month x 12 million subscribers) they could maybe...i dunno....include some services for free with your monthly fee. Or here's an idea, maybe include 30 days of play time when you buy an expansion. Nope. Squeeze every dollar you can out of everyone you can.
