It looks like the TBC Classic pre-patch is soon to arrive, as Blizzard will close paid character transfers at the end of April to prepare for the new “cloning” system.
The news comes from Blizzard Community Support member, Kaivax who shared the news:
“In order to prepare our systems which will handle snapshotting WoW Classic player-characters and preparing them to be separately playable on Burning Crusade Classic and WoW Classic Era realms, we will close the character transfer service in WoW Classic on April 30 at 10:00 a.m. PDT in this region.
We expect character transfers to be closed for multiple weeks, and we will let you know as soon as we can determine this process is nearly complete and we expect to re-open the service. For the duration of the closure, it will not be possible to transfer a WoW Classic player-character to or from any realm.
The actual snapshotting of all WoW Classic characters will occur after this closure. We will also announce that time at a later date.
The character transfer service closure in WoW Classic will have no impact whatsoever on the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands digital shop or services.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we perform this update.”
