    What type of deeds?
    If they were the old house deeds , those will poof if you atempt the transfer with them.
    There is a list of Items you cant take with you on a transfer.

    What cannot transfer:

    Houses, their secured items, their vendors , and their barkeeps will not be transferred to the new shard.
    The house will remain in its current state on its original shard, and your account will remain its owner. As with normal housing rules, you can acquire another house on the new shard, but please remember that acquisition of this new house will condemn the original house.
    If you are listed on a house’s Co-owner or Friends list, you will be removed from it.
    All legacy “house deeds” will be converted into house placement tools.
    You cannot transfer your character if it is currently in a party.
    If your character is part of a guild, it will be removed from that guild, even if you are the guildmaster. (You can join or start a new guild as normal after the transfer to the destination shard)
    If your character is in a Faction, it will be removed from that Faction, even if a Faction officer. (You can join a Faction as normal after transferred to the destination shard)
    You cannot transfer your character if it is in possession of a Town Sigil.
    Companion and Volunteer status (the latter applicable only to our Asian region, which still maintains Volunteers)
    Bracelets of Binding and Balls of Pet Summoning will have their links cleared upon transfer to the new shard. They will not be automatically re-linked upon transfer to the destination shard; you will have to re-link them yourself after the transfer is complete.
    Bulletin Boards will have all of their current messages deleted (but can continue to be used as normal on the destination shard).
    You will have to recreate any custom game macros for that character after the transfer to the new shard.

    I have lost many items, the worst one was a bonded packy full of checks. GM's dont help so dont waste your time. Just remember when you xfer to keep your best items in your bank. I have never lost an item out of my bank box.

    Leaving the Chessy Rares fest I xfered a load of gold to Atl.

    Imagine my suprise on arriving to my destination with "NO" packies.

    I logged back into my house only to find them still there wandering unattached.

    I paged a GM (Who arrived in 10 minutes) I almost fell over He did rectify the situation for me by taking the bags of gold out of the packies and I locked them down on the floor. He also deleted the Packies.

    Relieved I went on my way.

    Now you would think that this is where the story ends.... However

    Chessy went trough a revert and once again the packies were wandering all over my little house and I had to re page the GM

    It took almost 5 hours this time to get the Gm but, I am happy to say the same results.

    They can view the transfer the GM said. I am not sure they can view individual items.

    More recently I have had several situations where bank checks converted from 1 million gold to 1 gold or just very odd amounts that make no sense.

    This could be a factor in my using the extra storage upgrades when transfering at 60% upgrade your bank holds 175 items instead of the standard 125.

    Thanks to the Gm's for rounding up my Packies and getting my items back twice for me!

    I also lost a lot of items last night x-fering from catskills to europa.

    I was planning get a head start there - ending up with loosing most of my gold in game and many yrs to regain the vet rewards.

    GM cant help EA support tells me to go to a GM....

    No word from devs.

    They could replace rubble lost in mag, but wont help us here????

    Post after post of people losing (or just saying they lost) items and want them replaced.
    Im not saying you are lieing so goodluck trying to get your items back.
    (also sorry that you lost so much!)
    Ive only transfered once and had no problems.

    I can see your point Myph, I've been doing transfers for years and this is the first problem I've had.

    At first I thought I was going mad, checked all my characters time and time again.... Even went back and checked the vendors I bought the items from as I started doubting myself.

    I am 1000% sure these items poofed on my xfer!

    Im also positive sure Hardy.

    Cuz i packed down my stuff to xfer it for to get a head start.....
    I filled my bank first, then my char then a packie. And I was sure to make all my most valuable items on my char - and the bags with them was emty. I logged in and unpack my char, but all my bags on my char was emty.

    The list of items i lost is getting longer and longer as I remember what I had in the xfer, and i also logged into cats to check if they are still there. But, no they are gone.

    Only to replace the vet rewards it will take me 3-4 yrs to get them back. For the gold value i lost i cant imagine.

    "All follow me"....;)

    I'm not sure what is going on but I'm thinking some of the problems arising as the one Nabin mentions is from not telling the pet to follow you.

    I think issues arises with packies when they are in the 'stop' or 'stay' mode.

    I do a fair amount of xferring and haven't had any trouble with any xfers.

    I'm not sure why all of a sudden people are having trouble but I'm inclinded to belive if it's with packies that that's the problem.

    If can't be verified then prior to any xfers the packy needs to defaulted to follow mode.

    I think some of the latest problems lamented go beyond packies.

    Some items, I seem to understand, are NOT transferred to the destination shard even if they are in the bank box. Or in backpacks.

    That is, the transfer occurs only partially, for some of the items it does but not for others and the items not transferred are nowhere to be found.

    At least this is what I seem to understand.

    A thought just crossed my mind You are opening your crates , bags , and boxes are you not?? I mean when you start the transfer you can inspect the moving crates an packies too. this means down to the very last bag,box and keg kiddo...

    Had a guy a few months back loose his Cu (gold ) to being stupid and not be on it when he started his transfer he assumed it would be sent with him .. no he didnt stable it, he was just off it when he started and the Cu stayed on the shard he left. Think he spent 3 tolkens getting his pet back. Moral always be sure you pack right the first time and dont be dumb and not recheck when osi gives you the chance before hitting the send button!

    My theory which I forgot to state is along the lines of Madrid's here.

    I lined up all the packies commanded then to stay. Then Loaded them. I think I got distracted and did not state all follow me Hence they all stayed in the house on Chessy when I xfered. The Gm could not confirm that so they unloaded and deleted them for me and I started over.

    Great Catch Madrid Much Respect!!!

    Forget your theory. I did use one packy to xfer, and it was in follow mode. My items mising was in my backpack. When i did pack out the bags ws emty.

    In my translog, all my items was listed - so its not there either. (read earlier post).

    From there we can try our imagination from pack down script to unpack script -and we will never get wiser.

    Let the devs do their work, mesanna told me they are working on it and needed more info. Now they got lot more info - so lets hope they solve it.

    And i doubt we ever know what was the error.....
