Transfers from some impacted North American servers to four brand-new realms began at noon PST today, and will run "until 11PM, Friday, January 19 or until such a time that the destination realms have received adequate transfers to them." From Eyonix:
- In the event that a realm meets our transfer goals before the scheduled end date the transfers to that realm will be disabled. We highly recommend that if you are planning to transfer that you do so at your earliest convenience.
- You can begin a free character move here: https://www.worldofwarcraft.com/account/character-move.html
- Destination: - Arathor, PvE - Pacific
- Destination: - Trollbane, PvE - Eastern
- Destination: - Madoran, PvE - Central
- Destination: - Farstriders, RP - Central
I do have a character on Doomhammer, so I might transfer just for the hell of it. New servers are fun.
However, one sour note for the transfer bonanza: Cloudbeard of the guild Tide writes that a lot of people, including most of his guild, are stuck in the free transfer queue, and Blizz hasn't said much beyond that they're "working on a resolution." So maybe look out; but on the other hand, Eyonix urges you to transfer ASAP.
What have your transfer experiences been like?
