Here Come The Transfers

About 97 people have sent me the link to this screen shot in the last hour or so. Looks like a pretty detailed FAQ on the long awaited character transfers that we’ve all been waiting a long time for. I heard last week from a few inside-blizzard-birdies that these things were “very close” to being ready to happen, so that makes this screenshot a ton more believable – to me at least.

It also confirms my guess that there would be no PvE to PvP transfers offered, but that PvP to PvE would be OK. Other restrictions include obvious limites on gold, xfrs to high pop servers, and things like that. Check it.

UPDATE: Just got two independent confirmations that this is legit, and seems like a final version of something they’d seen earlier. Also, logging into to your account on and clicking the character trasnfer option gives you this message:

“The Character Move feature is currently closed. Please watch for any announcements regarding the availability of Character Move.

We are looking into the possibility of allowing customers more freedom in transferring to realms of their choice in the future. No further details are currently available concerning this feature, but any new information (regarding this or similar services) will be posted on as soon as it is available.”

Which is definitely a new massage, I’m guessing we’ll be seeing this open up any day now. More here

    Man, I so cannot wait. I keep getting told dates, and those dates keep passing without any mention. At least this doc confirms all the bits of info I’ve heard.

    I’m glad it’s only going to cost $25. I was seriously expecting at least $75.

    Now to just make whoever has the ‘Posh’ name on Dark Iron disappear …
