In World of Warcraft EditThis section concerns content exclusive to World of Warcraft.
A player is distinguishable from player characters in that one player can have multiple player characters. While playing with the default interface configuration, player characters can be identified by a permanent character name panel floating above their character. The color of the text in this name panel varies defending upon their faction and whether they are flagged for PvP.
|Name color||Faction||You PvP Flagged||Him PvP Flagged|
|blue||No matter||No matter||No|
The game mechanics in World of Warcraft also make the distinction between player and player character in a few ways, such as:
- Validating Guild Charter signatures. Only one character per account can sign a charter, thus preventing only a couple of players from starting a guild with many alts.
- Confirming Auction House bids and buyouts. A player cannot bid for, or buyout, their own auctions using one of their own alts on the same account.
- Responding to GM tickets promptly. When a GM ticket is submitted in game, the GM can identify a player regardless of which player character he or she may be using.
