    Is this something that would get fixed? Or do I have time to procrastinate

    Most things seem to get patched up rather quickly these days.
    If your lookin to utilize this i'd recommend sooner than later :P

    Just a headsup: people CANNOT whisper you or invite you to a group if you use one of those names. At least those from cross-realm cannot, those that normally can.

    I've gotten cross-realm invites on my Cognac though? Through the custom group.

    Come to think of it though, not sure I've ever received a whisper on her...

    So you were using LFG? I couldn't receive invites/whispers from people from cross-realm general chat. Some said that it showed them error that character was not found, others tried to send me invite but I never received them.

    Well you can use other exploit to force change your name. But test them first, maybe the ones you have do work.

    How can you force name change? Where is that exploit?

    No, through the Old Legacy/Custom group finder. I'll go test it though.

    So, I did some tests and it seems to be only the problem on one of my realms, but not the other. Really weird.

    Yeah I checked Elephant (conversation logger) and on my Cognac I got confirmation I'd been in an old ToT raid and gotten invited and talked to several cross-realm people in whispers it, so it must be on your end or that specific name is an Ultra bad word? idk

    The name I used was Jedi. I doubt its ultra bad.

    Hi,
    two days ago I created a character, named it with this exploit (he had "shit" in his name but nothing insulting), then switched to a FR client (I used the EU version of the exploit so I was using the italian one).
    I logged him 1 time. Then when I thought I had locked the name on my realm I just didn't touch it. Later this day I tried logging him again and he was already selected for a rename.
    So I created a second character with the italian client and keep playing in italian til I reached lvl 94 or something.
    But I'm kinda tired of reading italian so I was wondering if I can safely switch to french again? Or will it trigger a rename? I would be upset tbh.
    And if there is a rename, maybe I could switch italian again and use the same name again?
    Thanks for reading

    Sorry to resurrect a two-year old thread, but I've made extensive use of this trick and I think it may finally be fixed. Currently if I type in even ridiculous banned names that no one would ever take, on the Russian client it gives me the same error message as if I'd tried to use a name already in use. Thank you so much to OP for giving this great find that lasted so long! If I'm wrong, feel free to correct me, but I've used it for two years and suddenly it's not working.

    Hey, 12/8-18 - Still works EU, just:

    Step 4: Modify "enUS" (or whatever they are set as) to "ruRU"

    Instead of typing ''ruRU'' in step 4, type ''itIT''.
