Shard X-fer basics...

    A bit of confusion about this...

    Everything on the character gets transferred...
    Everything in that character's bank gets xferred...

    Now

    Can you use packies to xfer items?
    Or
    Do any animals have to be in the stable, and you can only xfer what you have on you and in your bank?

    Do you have to be unmounted as well?

    Thanks!

    Animals do not have to be stabled, packies can be loaded. You must be unmounted.

    Everything you are wearing, everything in your pack and everything in your bank is transferred.

    All stabled pets are transferred. You must be unmounted, and that pet will be transferred with you as well.

    You can use up to 5 filled packies to transfer items if you do not have a mount. (5 control slots, so you can use a beetle and 2 packies).

    Maximum 900 items all around. Including backpack, bank and packies.
     
  6. Hi, only done a few transfers before and have just initiated one now. I've been squealched though for uhm 15-20 mins and not logged out. I don't remember this being normal? Any ideas, I dont want to close the client and risk screwing things up.

    15 - 20 minutes isn't unusual.
     
  8. No, thought you were automatically logged out after you committed. This didnt happen to me, i eventually ended up with the time out warning and had to close it anyway. Looks like stuff has transferred now though!

    Most of the time my game just freezes or locks up. It seems like the more items I transfer the longer it takes, I have had no problems filling up pack horses but I try to put most expensive stuff in my bank and main pack just in case. The shortest time it ever took was like 10mins and the longest was well over an hour. Watch taking stuff from the moving crate if you even click it with mouse and try to put it back into crate it will drop on the ground at your feet. Don't forget your auto re-insurance will get turned off sometimes. I have also had rune book issues once or twice

    I did have a problem xfering with packies several months back. When i xfered, the packies were there with me, but as soon as i started to walk off, with them supposedly following me, one packie disappeared. Which in turn lost me many soulstones, and many rares i had on the packie. So just be careful when doing this.

    900 PLUS the items you have on your paperdoll is the max amount of items if you have 150 storage in your bank box.

    I have found that it's MUCH safer to leave the packies inside the moving crate - don't unpack them until you're inside your destination house or somewhere safe like a bank or inn. I used to unpack them from the crate the instant i landed on the new shard, but I have had them wander and have also had them attack a vampire bat and die no matter how much I screamed all stop and all follow me. I leave everything in the transfer crate except my worn items until I am somewhere safe.

    This is what I do now, you have 7 days to claim everything. That gives you plenty of time to get a safe place set ups as well as safe storage.

    When I transfered to GL for the rares fest I unpacked my packies 1 at a time and transfered the items from the packies to characters from a second account. This allowed me to use their banks as storage.
