Battlenet account question

Postby Kaerstyn » July 12th, 2014, 8:14 am

I was not sure where to put this so I put it here.....

I have been playing and collecting on US servers since release and have collected and leveled man many battle pets. My daughter is now playing on EU severs and wants me to play with her.

If I add an EU game to my battlenet account, while my pets and mounts be there?

Are you wanting to merge with her account?
Or just start a new toon on a EU account?

If wanting to merge, if blizz lets you can be a hassle but since your daughter might be a lot easier.
All pets will then be available to both you and your daughter since accounts merged and why blizz makes this hard to do at times.
Someone could be selling an account to another with lots of nice perks on it like pets, mounts, titles etc...

If just wanting to start a new toon or transfer any existing toons to an EU realm.
Just have to pay the transfer fee or start a new toon for free.
All pets, mounts, titles will go with it.
But, daughter won't get them but can play together on this new realm.

Hope this helps

I heard that you can't combine anything from here with the EU version so you'd have to buy the EU version of the game (even though you already have the US version) and that there's no way to transfer an US account to an EU account.

I work nights so I play in the wee hours of the morning on my nights off. I thought I'd like to transfer to an EU server but this was the answer I was given when I asked around. You'd basically have to start from the ground up is what I was told when I asked around.

Won't merging an account with another mean that they won't be able to Pet Battle together at the same time (due to sharing the same collection)? If so, it's something to keep in mind. If not, then disregard this, sorry!

Thank you for all your replies.

Not a merge... daughter has her own account.

My account is mine only and has always been US-side. We moved to Denmark and my daughter is now grown and playing EU-side.

I was asking wondering is account-bound items (such as pets and mounts) would be available to me when I open an EU-side account on my battle net account. Im seeing that the answer is no, that I will begin again.

Im guessing that this would also apply to any Blizzard-store purchases.

Oh well....so sad

You should contact support for this, during weekdays livechat should be available for your issue and you'll have your answer in seconds. Simply go to your battle-net account and go to the support section.

You cannot add an EU account to your US battle.net. You would have to start a new battle.net EU account to my understanding from friends that have both.

@Quintessence: My sister-in-law and brother have their accounts all merged on one battle.net. They cannot use the same pet at the same time, but both have access - not that my brother would battle anyway ; )

No, it is really possible to add both US and EU under the same battle net account.
I did this not to long ago.
Just go to eu.battle.net , login with your credentials and add a new wow account!
Problem is that nothing is shared, so you will have to start EU from scratch :(

So it seems if you want to go to an EU account you must start from scratch.
But , with cross realms can one of them invite the other to a group and play together that way ?
I also know next expansion you can cross realm raid and such.
Again this I am not sure of, will /can EU servers and US servers be able to do this together?

Seems to me if you can play together like this better than starting over and losing everything.
