With all of the World of Warcraft announcements of late, it would seem that Blizzard is really giving a lot of options to the player. Now, in addition to realm transfers, character re-customization, and name changes, you can also change faction and race. The question is, is this being done for the players own good, or is Blizzard playing off human nature.
Although each of these services seem great, each come with a rather exorbitant fee attached, most likely to keep players from constantly changing there name, look, realm, faction or race. Also, where there used to be a three month period between transfers, there is now only a three day restriction. Some people may see this as a wonderful idea, since an expansion is in the works and no one wants to have to level a Worgen or Goblin to 80, so now, they can just change their race, most likely a few months after expansion, and BAM.
