Play US servers from EU account


This question has probably been asked before but I can’t seem to find a sure answer that perfectly applies to what I need to know.

I have an EU battle net account and I have always played WoW on EU servers. Now I would like to play with my Canadian friends. Is there any way for me to do this with my current account or will I need to create a new one where I say that I live in Canada? (I did try this but got the error that my email address is already connected to an account.)
Does this mean that if I manage to buy the US version of the game I can use this account and play the US servers, or will it see that my account is a European one and redirect me to everything EU even if I try to buy the US version of the game?

I bought the game, the US version I thought, but ended up on the EU servers anyway. Luckily and thankfully I got my money back but I am scared to try again in case I mess up again.


Let’s see if I can clear things up for you. :slight_smile:

Yes. All you have to do is register a new World of Warcraft account for the region that you want to play in. You can do that on your current Blizzard account ( account), as it can hold up to 8 different World of Warcraft accounts (licenses).

You can add a starter account for your region of choice here: (scroll down to the Starter Editions section, and select the region after clicking on Create Starter Account).

If you want to upgrade (add the current expansion) or add gametime, you can do so through the US region shop.

Have a few seconds to spare? Let me know how I’m doing!


Thank you SO MUCH! :heart_eyes:
Very clear and helpful instructions, now I managed to get it right. :slight_smile:


i got a followup question, is it possible to use my blizzard currency on my eu account to pay for a us sub? or does that depend on what country i’m from

You can indeed not pay for a different region’s currency depending on what country your account is registered at with €uro Balance for U$D Blizzard shop items

However, you may be able to use a different payment method instead. Though extra charges may apply such as conversion rates and fees.
