$24.95 sounds kinda steep. I don't know why someone would pay that but to each his own I guess :)

If it is following the LOTRO model, yes, it's per character.

Since Aundair is merging with three other servers, I guess I'm really getting this service for free. :)

I was getting excited too. When I saw "premium" I thought that meant I could change the skin of my armor, an aura effect around my toon, or some wicked glowie eyes. Oh well.....surely not going to pay for toon transfer but there must be people out there that want it, because its being offered.

I have characters with the same name on different servers? Example: I have the name Balanthor on Adar and Sarlona. Will I have to pay $24.95 plus an additional $9.95 to change that characters name, or will it just not allow me to merge that character?

When will I be able to do a Character Transfer?

Can I get in line now?

Once the request is taken, how long will it take?

Well I guess this means if your character name gets taken as part of the merger, you can go to another server and see if your name is taken, if it's not, transfer there..... if that name is just that important to you!!

If you transfer a Character with 1750+ Favor to a New server wil that give you the ability to create 32 Point characters on that new server?

From my understanding, It's actually cheaper then most, if not all, the other games that provide this service. Also take note that some other games that offer this wont let you bring your stuff with you. At least Turbine will let you keep your stuff.

I am also curious about this detail.

When you do a "Character Transfer", I'm assuming that only one character is transferred, not all of the characters on one account. Am I correct?

I'm guessing that it won't transfer the 1750 ability to another server because it is something that is flagged on your account on that server... it has nothing to do with the character once flagged.

Now I imagine you could transfer a character with 1748 favor then get those last 2 points on the other server and it would work as you expect.

I'd hope any extra cash they can skim off their customers would be utilized to stabilize the servers.

Character Transfer sounds great. Have a question about it however. When you transfer a character from one server to another, does all of that characters bank items and inventory items go with them? I know that it does with the server merge, just curious if it's the same way with the character transfer premium service.

Yeah 24.95 is pretty ridiculous for a game that seems to be on the downturn.. Whats the point of spending that much to move a character when I might only get to use it for 6 more months?

It especially seems ridiculous when they just did it for free for many people, I just wasn't lucky enough to get Xoriat moved to Khyber.

Let me know when the price drops below 10.00, I might consider it then.

Everything on you or in the bank or opened mail go, you won't get auction house stuff or unclaimed mail. Also, it only covers one toon....that sucks eggs.

People... fellow players... WHAT IS THE PROBLEM!? People invest hundreds of dollars a month into Maple Story! We can't spare a measly $25? Just how cheap are you? Get on Maple Story, hop into the Cash Shop, and think about all the cosmetic nonsense people may buy, because the simple fact is they do. NX cards sold at Target usually sell off the shelves in certain areas... I'd say Nexon makes(per the chars I have seen decked with temporary cosmetic apparrel, available for $4-13 per piece) about $12,000/month or more on their Free-To-Play game.

I think most are missing the point here. Turbine does not WANT to have a lot of transfers, they are offering it because it is now an industry standard. The high price keeps people from moving except when they really, really want to. My guess is that it is not an easy thing to do and / or time consuming. We all know that Turbine has given limited resources to this game, I really do not want them spending it all on character transfers.

:mad: Both stages are Complete...Yet still can not transfer my toon. Why make a post saying you will be able to? Then no one ever comes back to say hang in there or a date it will happen...they are ignoring this thread.....Not happy.. If I ignored my MasterCard payment they would notice that.....or would they? hmmm

Did I read somewhere that after the server merge we'll be able to rename our characters for free? I just tried on one of mine and received the message, "you do not have any change name credit".

You get a free rename credit if your name is joe-server name if you dont have the dash server name you got to keep the name so no rename credit for you.
