Dear blizzard many people in this game (not including my self firemaw for life<3) will need a server transfer in my guild on firemaw. We have 2 people on other servers that are prepared to transfer into our server in prepatch and they had no idea it closed when it did. Please open the character server transfer in the prepatch and even in TBC. It would be so much help to lots of people :slight_smile:

Hello yes! We intend to turn on the character transfer service soon after realms go live with the update next week. We need to keep transfers offline until we’re done snapshotting all characters, but that will be finished during maintenance, so realm transfers can be resumed thereafter.

On a related note, we’ve made a small change to realm transfer restrictions. Previously, a player-character was restricted to taking a maximum of 2000 gold with them. Going forward, that maximum has been raised to 5000 gold.
