Not Too Orcward: WoW Freelocation

Are you one of the frightening mountain of people considering relapsing returning to World of Warcraft in the wake of Cataclysm's rather noticeable release? Did you log on to dredge up your old character, in whatever ludicrous mish-mash of loot he was garbed in, only to discover that the entire world had set up camp on your server during your away time, and now you have to queue for forty million and 12 hours to get in?

Blizzard may be willing to help.

Queues and WoW launches go hand in hand, but they're trying to lessen the drama by offering some free server transfers for the most afflicted shards. You can still pay for a specific transfer - for instance if you're wanting to join the RPS reader guild - but there are also free relocations for certain US servers. No word on Euro moves yet, as far as I can tell.

Here's the list of sources and destinations, and pop over here if any of 'em are relevant to you:
