- These migrations have completed. Thanks everyone.
Update 1/21 - We've extended the availability of these transfers until Friday, January 24, at 10:00 a.m. PST. The announcement blog
has been updated. Please be aware that early closure is still a possibility if the destination realms fill up.
Update 1/21 - We monitored transfers throughout the weekend and have seen a healthy amount of characters being moved over to new destination realms. The announcement blog
is also once again live. We're looking at the possibility of extending transfers due to the early technical issues, but are waiting to see tonight's peak concurrency before making that call.
Update 1/16 - We've managed to resolve the "under maintenance" message for most, but are still investigating cases where it's still not available. Some people have found that this is a browser issue, and using a different browser or clearing browser cache (Ctrl+F5 for most browsers) may remove the message. Please also ensure you have character eligible to be transferred on the Source realms below.
Update 1/15 - While Free Character Migrations opened this morning as planned, the page to initiate a transfer is currently and inexplicably inoperable, displaying a maintenance message. We're continuing to investigate the cause, but don't have a current estimate for when the FCMs will be available. We'll provide an update and re-post the announcement on the front page of the site once they are, though.
We'll be offering Free Character Migrations next week for realms currently seeing high queue times at login. Those looking to avoid waiting to log in can take advantage of the free transfers to a set destination realm.
We're targeting the middle of next week for these Free Character Migrations to become available, and they'll remain open for approximately one week, or until a destination realm fills up. If you're looking to transfer with others we recommend setting up plans early to avoid any stragglers being left behind.
