UPDATE – 12 Oct:
It looks like Blizzard employees have no doubt made it clear the merges will be mandatory starting next month. Players on North American servers will need to merge their accounts before
, and players on EU servers will need to merge their accounts before
if they have not done so already. The threads are located
We all know this day was coming, but we didn't know exactly
it would happen until now: You will need to merge your WoW account in order to access it before November 11th/12th, or else your account will be inaccessible. This report came directly from Boubouille on
, and the source came directly from
EU Blizzard's Battle.net FAQ
The quoted FAQ and article come right after the break!
Q: What happens if I don’t merge my World of Warcraft account with a Battle.net account?
A: After November 12, 2009, you won’t be able to log in to the game unless you merge your account with a Battle.net account. You will need to log in using your Battle.net account username (your email address) and password.
Q: How can I obtain the penguin pet?
A: Once you’ve successfully merged a World of Warcraft account with a Battle.net account, the penguin pet will be sent via in-game mail to all existing characters on the merged World of Warcraft account, along with all future characters on that World of Warcraft account. Players who merged previously will also receive the pet this way.
Q: Do I need to merge by a certain date in order to receive the penguin?
A: We plan to remove the ability to get the penguin pet at some point in the future, we haven’t determined exactly when just yet.
Q: If I create a new World of Warcraft account, will I receive the pet?
A: Only existing World of Warcraft accounts that merge with a Battle.net account are eligible to receive the penguin pet. If you create a new Battle.net account after November 11 and merge an existing World of Warcraft account with it you will still be able to receive the pet. However, please note that we plan to remove the ability to get the penguin pet at some point in the future.

This is both good news and bad news to me. It's good because we're at least getting a penguin pet for merging our account, but bad because it's going to spark some negative feedback from the people who are reluctant to convert. But at least it leaves these people with a very simple choice: Either merge your account or cancel it. :P
Those who are concerned about security risks really shouldn't have anything to worry about. You can check out my previous blog on
, as well as using a separate, isolated e-mail address for the purpose of Battle.net. As long as you maintain good browsing habits—and if you have an Authenticator, that's even better—you really should have nothing to worry about.
Thoughts on the merge?
Are you happy the day has finally come? Or are you just dreading it?
