    Have there been any big problems lately with either way of getting from one shard to another? I don't want to lose important items and gold that I may move to another shard either with a shield visit or a forever transfer. Thanks for any tips or warnings...

    There are rumors that a pack animal may get left behind now and then. As a precaution, friend your packies to a character on another account so that if it does get left behind you can get the stuff in it's backpack before the packie goes wild and drops it on the ground.

    you cant take packies with ya on shard shields.
    ive done..... i dont even know how many shard shields jumps and ive never had a problem or lost an item.
    ive probably done 50 normal transfers over they years and ive never had any problems either, i just make sure all the pack animals are recently commanded and away i go.

    Thanks Barok and Poo. Great idea about friending packies to another account. At the moment I'm using a shard shield to move my crafter to my second shard to craft for their castle, then back home in a few days. First castle I've had in 17 years!

    I do tons of shard shield jumps and done my fair share of character transfer token jumps. I had a problem once and only once. my only complaint was how long it took to get a hold of someone to actually fix. The character disappeared for a bit and an email to Mesanna fixed the problem in time.

    However ive never lost an item, had items turn "non-vendorable" or anything remotely gone wrong other than that one time.

    Over all im pretty happy with the way shield tokens and character tokens work.
