Yep you got that right if you're a Alliance or Horde you can soon change it and jump to the other side. According to Blizzard the creaters of World Of Warcraft
There's still much work to do and many details to iron out, but the basic idea is that players will be able to use the service to transform an existing character into a roughly equivalent character of the opposing faction on the same realm. Players who ended up creating and leveling up characters on the opposite factions from their friends have been asking for this type of functionality for some time, and we're pleased to be getting closer to being able to deliver it.
So there you have it, soon you will beable to switch over.
So curious how many are planning on jumping ship to the other side? Will this change make the game harder to play or more confusing? You know the once my friend now my enemy feel?
