Character Transfers Live
Paid Character Transfers hit the WoW homepage today, and I was lucky (?) enough to have a character sitting on one of the available source realms gathering dust. In a moment of extreme jingoism for my new guild, I decided to move him over to Eitrigg, even though he’s level 15 and probably not worth the 25 dollar fee to move him.
However, I’m happy to report that the transfer went extremely smoothly. In spite of two different warnings about how long the transfer would take (One quoted the transfer time as “a few hours”, another said “several days”!), after my credit card was approved, the transfer was made and I found my character sitting on Eitrigg immediately after. Blizzard appears to be covering their asses on the unknown variables.
My personal prediction was that they have a flagging system based on the level, items, and gold sitting on the character during transfer, or if the account owner has a past history. I think it’s a safe bet if the transfer isn’t so immediate, should your transfer request seem less than honorable.
Anyways, I’m just waiting for Kalecgos to make the list of available source realms, i wanna get my 60 mage off there and to a realm where I have friends to run with. My most developed character, and I hardly use him. Pout.
