Intoduction Edit

The following script allows you to change the realm / character names within your WTF. It is used in the following situations:

  • Copying your WTF to the test realm installation
  • Moving your characters from one realm to another
  • Forced to rename your character

The script was developed and tested on a Mac, however it can be run on Linux as-is and on Windows via cygwin.

Usage Edit

The script can be stored and run from anywhere.

migrateWTF.sh -a <account name> [-s <source dir>] [-d <destination dir>] -f <realm from> -t <realm to> {-o <old name> -n <new name>}

-a <account name> Name of the account in capitals; this is the directory under World of Warcraft/WTF/Account
-s <source dir> (optional) Source installation directory, defaults to /Applications/World of Warcraft
-d <destination dir> (optional) Destination installation directory, defaults to /Applications/World of Warcraft/WoWTest
-f <realm from> Realm you are migrating from; remember to quote it if it contains special characters
-f <realm to> Realm you are migrating to; remember to quote it if it contains special characters
-o <old name> (optional, repeats) Character name on source realm
-o <new name> (optional, repeats) Character name on destination realm

-o and -n must be specified in pairs; zero or many -o -n pairs may be specified.

Additional Information Edit

To migrate from one realm to another within the same WoW installation i.e. you have moved realms, you should specify the same -s and -d. The old configuration will be backed up to:

World of Warcraft/WTF.beforemigration

Limitations Edit

Only one account may be migrated.

Only one realm may be migrated; you cannot have multiple from or to realms.

Examples Edit

Migration from your realm to the test realm without renaming any characters Edit

./migrateWTF.sh -a NEMES11 -s "/Applications/World of Warcraft" -d "/Applications/World of Warcraft/WoWTest" -f "Dath'Remar" -t "Test Server (US PVE)"

Migration from one realm to another, renaming two toons Edit

./migrateWTF.sh -a NEMES11 -s "/Applications/World of Warcraft" -d "/Applications/World of Warcraft" -f "Thunderhead" -t "Privybush" -o Nemes -n Nemesy -o Rhad -n Dhar

migrateWTF.sh Edit
