PW Retail Transfers - lvl100 requirement removed?

#1 » Post by candre23 » 12 May 2016 12:56

I read the announcement, the guide, and the transfer page. The lvl100 requirement for retail transfers to primal is not mentioned on any of them, but I can't remember if it was previously, or if it was only specified in the original forum post announcing that they were being processed.

Does a PW retail transfer currently require a 100 retail toon, or is it subject to the same requirements as TW (60+)?

Transfers were halted for different reasons so I don't believe any of those requirements have been changed yet. PrimalWoW still has a level 100 requirement for retail.

OK, thanks. The transfer page should probably be updated to include this information, or you'll keep getting PW transfer requests from <100 retail accounts.

Personally I think it's an odd and counterproductive requirement. It seems rather unfair that I could get one of my retail 80s transferred to TW as an 80, but can't get them transferred to PW as a 60. Especially when all a lvl100 toon proves is that you are willing to buy (and then cancel) a legion preorder for the free 100 boost.

Is there any chance of this being revised in the near future, or should I just go ahead with the legion boost rigmarole?

There are no plans to change the requirements for PrimalWow in the near future, we might consider it when realm will reach TBC.

It was not mentioned on the transfer page that you needed to be 100, it is only mentioned in a forum post.

It does say this on the transfer page

"We reserve the right to refuse a character transfer even if the official requirements are met."

So it doesn't matter where the 100 requirement is posted. The final decision is still thiers.

That being said. I agree that it is a bit unfair that someone that stopped playing after Work or Cata (and there is a lot of them) are getting boned by this. Hopefully a solution can be found.

Note that characters from other private servers are available for transfer as well to TrueWoW/PrimalWoW. Most servers do not offer this service at all and it really is hard to come up with fair rules that everyone can agree on. Consider that the server staff are as interested in making its community happy as a whole and not just catering new players who may or may not stick to our server.

Regardless of transfers, I think the server offers plenty of ways for players to dig in quickly to our server in many different forms such as our guilds which give players free gear/bags for levelers and the recruit-a-friend feature. Also, the time investment from 1 to 60 is currently 2-4 days played time, which is more than viable for a player to do over the course of a few weeks even at a few hours a day.

@mrshides: The transfer page is not updated for PrimalWow transfers. It will be updated in the next couple of days.
@chikilili: In order to get a faction change you need to specify that when you submit the transfer.

I put in for a transfer earlier, and just realized that he has the same name as an existing toon. Since the existing toon is already 44, I'm a bit worried he'll get overwritten. How do I go about resolving this?

Transfers always get a random name that you're able to change and we never override any existing characters.

Now the transfers have started again, can you give us a estimate of how long it is going to take to get our transfer status?

Since people were still sending in their requests regardless of the short halt, there are tons of transfers requests, so it may take some time to catch up, but we're working on it, don't worry.

Thanks for the quick reply man, I understand you are also doing checks on old transfers so that seems like allot of work. But it does give me a confidence you guys are on top of this and do not want frauded chars on the realm.

I hope i did everything correctly!
