What gets affected when you transfer your Character?

Things that come with you when you Transfer your Character/Server

  • Your Quest Progress.
  • All your houses and house decorations.
  • The money you earned so far.
  • All of your inventory and storage.
  • And last but not least you get to keep your character’s progress. This includes your character’s level, titles, etc.

Worlds where you can transfer your Character

While the free transfer token allows you to move your character to any world as long as it is in your region, there are some exceptions.

  • Your character cannot be transferred to a full world.
  • You cannot transfer it to a world that is in maintenance.
  • Your character cannot be transferred to a world where you already have another character. So to keep it simple, two of your characters cannot be in the same world.
