    Default Information of HC Server closing

    Devs!

    Can we get some information of the way HC server will be closing?

    Question 1

    Server transfer? Do I need to empty TR Bank, Personal Bank etc?

    Also, do I need to have this done before Nov 15th?

    Question 2

    Can I send toons to any server (ie 4 toons to Sarlona, 2 toons to Orion, 1 toon to another random server, or do I need to send all toons to one server?)

    Question 3

    How long does this take? Can I play my HC toons are Sarlona on Nov 15th?

    Question 4

    Is there a way to get my toons that have died to a bank to clear out personal bank and TR bank? and if so, when will this be available


    Thanks for your attention to this!

    cordo mumbled in a live stream last week that they are preparing a communication about this soonish.
    but from what I recall:
    * the server will shut down for a few days
    * they prepare stuff
    * then it reopens
    * everyone revives / can go banking / whatever / quit guild leadership (so that you can transfer), etc.
    * it's likely to remain open for transfer for two weeks or longer
    * each character can go elsewhere

    You already have - most of your Q's have been answered by Devs in the main threads re HCL. I'll repeat what I remember...


    Server transfer? Do I need to empty TR Bank, Personal Bank etc?

    Iirc, it's only inventory and personal bank that travel w/ a character. Dunno about TR bank. I distinctly remember that "shared" bank will NOT transfer. Dunno about mail either, but I'm betting "no".


    Can I send toons to any server?...

    Yes, each one is individual transfer.


    Is there a way to get my toons that have died to a bank to clear out personal bank and TR bank?

    Nupe. This was made clear before HCL started (and to great bemoanings) - you die, your stuff is only what you have on your back, no going back to the (last) physical world from limbo. Ever.

    They could just drop a banker and mailbox in limbo you know.
    I got a dead toon with mail :/ Most likely auction.

    I have quite a few items I farmed knowing they would sell on AH for astral shards. Like he said, put a banker and mail box in the land of dead people.

    Why am I reminded of that current thread where the OP wants Reaper to be more like normal play, but still call it "Reaper"?

    They could make Hardcore much more Softcore - but then it wouldn't be Hard Core, now, would it?

    It is what it is, it is as advertised. No surprises here, it was never like any other server, and everyone who signed on (who bothered to read anything) knew that going in - so what's the issue?

    I understand and am for the fact that once a character dies, you cannot access anything on that character during Hardcore play. But after the event is over? That's a terrible decision and it's not too late to change that, if in fact, it even is how it's going to be.

    Eh? How is clearing out a server making Hardcore less Hard?

    This is simply inventory management with a server shut down.

    Hi! Thanks for the answer you’ll release an FAQ soon. I have a question what not sure will be answered so I ask here.
    Since the Hardcore server is VIP only (and season pass too obviously) does those accounts still can do the character transfer who recently canceled vip subscription or do we need to reactivate vip to get access to the character transfer at the end of HC server shut down? For example to explain my situation: I have a lvl5 character with all the goodies what I get from expansion packs (heroic and epic exp tome), plus gold dice rewards such as cosmetics and tome of fate what I would like to keep if possible so this could be a strong enough alt on my main server. Thanks in advance.

    The following things will not transfer with your character:

    Your Astral Shard balance
