In my 10 years of playing MMOs, I have never once looked into a character transfer.
Yesterday, things had been going so well (lag-wise, guild-wise, etc.) on Khyber that I thought "Maybe I'll bring my TR from Thelanis over here. I wonder if DDO does character transfers. If it's not $50, I'll probably do that."
Today, I discovered: As of 3/5/13, "New Paid Service requests cannot be submitted at this time."
I have money in hand, Turbine.
What's the ETA on this service getting back up?
Also: when it is back, and I wanna transfer a toon, will said toon keep it's Tome of Learning from my MotU purchase? (Giving me 2 toons on one server with a Tome of Learning. I imagine it would, being that the Tomes are unique to character.)
