    I downloaded the 10 Day Trial yesterday and started playing it today, the game is fully updated but I have the US version! I have been playing it for the best part of a day and have been really enjoying it!

    Question is, can I use the account I created when I buy the full version? I don't see the option to join a UK server only US?! Is it pointless me carrying on with this go?

    Cheers

    Games bought in the UK connect to EURO servers. I hear there is a way around this with editing a file but Blizzard will explode with rage if they catch you.

    As for transferring your trial account to full, I honestly don't know.

    I know I can transfer my trial account to full but I want to know if I can use my character in the Uk realms. I may aswel just buy a copy asap and start again while its fresh in my head!

    You cannot transfer your character from the US to the UK realms.

    ( I'm not sure if this is allowed on here but I know a few friends that have done it and nothing happened )
    But try opening the realmlist.wtf file in your World of Warcraft directory and changing it to 'set realmlist eu.logon.worldofwarcraft.com'

    The US and the UK realm names are the same so don't get confused.

    Yeah, I downloaded it, installed it and played it but I can't continue with my character as its only the US servers/realms!

    why play on a us sever? buy a uk copy and join the europeans if u want to carrie on playing.

    Ppl from europe that play on US realms have nothing but problems when it comes to updateing the game.

    Also the pings wont be too great.
