ArcheAge is a free to play MMORPG developed by XL Games and published in Europe and North America by Trion Worlds, also known for other great MMORPGs such as Trove, Devilian, and Defiance. This week, a moment came that a lot of ArcheAge players anticipated for a while now as Trion announced that the ability to transfer characters between all Legacy servers has been brought back.
Just like the previous time, this character transfer service will only work for players that transfer their characters between Legacy servers, so any transfers between Legacy servers and Fresh Start servers or transfers only between Fresh Start servers are not available at this time.
In order to celebrate the comeback of the transfer service, players get a huge discount. Until February 23rd all transfers will cost only 1 credit. This is a perfect opportunity for any player that desires to switch to another server either to escape their enemies or join their friends. Players should keep in mind, however, that there are a few downsides to transfers. For instance, the character won’t be available for play for a few minutes during process, only the items in the character’s inventory will carry over, in case of duplicate names the player will be asked to choose a new one, and the hero status is lifted, leaving the player’s seat in their previous server vacant and removing the hero cloak from the character inventory.
Additionally, there are some important things you need to do before you decide to transfer yourself to another server. As you head out to transfer your character, be sure to log out of the game and remain logged out until the transfer is fully completed as this may lead to some complications. Even logging in just to sit in server select is risky. An account that isn’t fully logged out during a transfer may cause many problems and errors. This is a known issue which developers are currently focusing on fixing as soon as possible, but until then, be careful. Now hop on ArcheAge while this perfect opportunity is available and have fun playing on a new server and meeting new players.
