I found this on the OF posted by a community rep:

Hello everyone,

Yoshi-P made a post about the upcoming World transfer service a few hours ago. The translation will be available soon but we can already tell you that upon the launch of this service, the first 5 days will be free.

The World transfer service will start in the first half of this month.

I'm staying where I'm at, but this is good news for those who played on JP servers in the beginning due to overcrowding and inability to log into the NA servers.

Anyone who is considering this, it's FREE for the first 5 days!

Come to Ultros and play with us in the ZAM FC! Smiley: grin

Sincerely hope I am wrong!

You might not want to do that. After day 1, there will likely be restrictions put in place. If another post I see is correct though, all NA/EU worlds are currently accepting characters.

I think I will be the last one on my server, and it'll be closed on day 1 and I'll be forced to move :P

I'm a bit worried about this myself. Not only from the influx of characters with tons of gil, but also those with tons of maxxed crafting jobs.

Has there been any word on whether they're allowing unrestricted transfers from legacy to non-legacy servers?

Yep, legacy players will be able to move, they originally said 6 months after launch but due to the fact a lot of people got stuck and couldn't move, they'll retcon that. Fresh economies won't get "ruined", if anything they'll have more supply.

Though for all new servers sake, pray that no one from Hyperion move to new servers, the amount of idiocy from people there in terms of the market is astounding.

They may not be ruined, but there will be an influx of new competition from players that have a huge head start on the rest of the non-legacy players. I can easily see them being able to dominate the market for a period of time.

I'm of the opinion that they should still wait 6 months before allowing transfers from legacy to non-legacy servers, to allow everyone to be on similar footing.

i highly doubt this will be an option for legacy characters... if they forced them to be on legacy servers (for that very same reason—ruining the economy), why would they turn around and let them transfer a month later? i wouldn't worry :)

I've also seen no evidence that they're allowing Legacy characters to transfer.

That said, the notion of 1.0 characters being so far ahead of non-1.0 characters is slightly overblown. Most people who have 1.0 characters quit playing FFXIV after very little time... many others who stuck around don't have all of their jobs maxed. Lots of people hit cap, but didn't grind endgame. We're not all loaded with tons of gil.

That, and there are already so many people with new characters that already have millions of gil and mulitple level 50 jobs.

On the whole, I don't think there's much of a gap anymore.

http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/threads/100104?p=1356488#post1356488

using the crappy auto translate, it seems legacy characters can not transfer to 'new' worlds, but can transfer between legacy worlds (unless the auto translate is being dumb and not telling me the truth Smiley: lol ):

Quote:
The detailed rules on the occasion of the transfer of other, I will explain in Topics. In addition, in the world transfer service of this, newborn world together, LEGACY world each other, transfer of LEGACY world is possible from newborn and world.

I consider anyone from 1.0 to be a legacy player regardless of them being on the legacy server or not.

You discriminate against me because I miss the inn cookies!

Honestly, the game is different enough from 1.0 that even a Legacy player who is on a new character on a new server had very little in terms of advantages. I had way more advantage from simply having been in alpha and beta than I did coming from 1.0 on my new characters. And any Legacy benefit I had was eroded when I realized I couldn't figure out how to correctly play a 42 THM and I didn't want to embarrass myself, so I restarted out as a 15 CNJ on that character.

Exactly.

If we were allowed to transfer our 1.0 characters off of Legacy servers, I'd be very tempted to move Thayos to Ultros and redo my story missions (I just unlocked Stone Vigil), because my 1.0 character already has four level 50 jobs... and they're the same jobs I'll probably be unlocking first on Stryder.

This may seem like a big deal, but even the ZAM FC already has a few members with multiple level 50 jobs AND way better gear than Thayos has... probably mountains of additional gil, too.

Like Catwho, though, I'm thankful to have played ARR from the ground up. It's a night-and-day different game than 1.x. Nothing from 1.x (except for completing the End of an Era storyline and having that background) is useful in ARR from a gameplay perspective. I'd actually see being too entrenched in the ways of 1.x as being a short-term disadvantage for someone coming into ARR.

From a battle class point-of-view it's probably no big deal. But if I were someone leveling crafts from scratch on a fresh start server just to have a bunch of all-50s crafters with sextuple melded gear and stocked-to-the-brim inventories pop in after a month and take over the economy, I'd be screaming bloody murder.

I'm not discriminating. It's only fair to recognize legacy players who for some reason did not get the free client method and wound up on other servers.

And I stole the inn cookies and saved them just for you. My 1.0 char was a lalafell. Remember, they are ALWAYS up to something, yet no one suspects them. >:D

For sure!

But now that we're more than a month in, the truth is that hardcore players from all servers already have several level 50 battle/craft/gathering jobs, endgame gear and craploads of gil.

Most players, both new and 1.0 characters, do not.

So, at this point in time, I don't think there's a legitimate divide that people need to be concerned about. Each server already has its "haves" and "have nots." Any advantage of having a 1.0 character is pretty much gone now.

Yoshi-P wrote:

FFXIV: ARR Producer and Director Yoshida here.

I would like to start off by apologizing for the login and character creation restrictions due to the heavy congestion during the two weeks following the launch of FFXIV: ARR. Twice now we've enhanced existing servers and introduced new servers, and with the upcoming additions that will be made starting in the middle of this month and finishing up at the end, we will have developed our expanded infrastructure to properly meet our operation needs.

As a result of players experiencing problems following the character creation restrictions, we have been working hard to introduce the World Transfer Service.
  • You picked a World because you liked the name, but character creation was closed when you tried to create a character.
  • You wanted to play with your real life friends, but were unable to create a character on their World.
  • You created a character on a World that is often congested and were often met with login restrictions.


Before you all read the official announcement, I've organized an outline of the World Transfer Service describing what it is, the benefits, risks, and case by case scenarios, so if you are thinking about using the World Transfer Service or plan on using it, please be sure to read on.

  • What is the World Transfer Service?


Simply put, the World Transfer Service is a service that will allow you to move from your current World to another World of your choice. Normally this is a fee-based service; however, as an apology to players for the aforementioned issues, we will be offering this service free for the first five days.

However, please be aware of the below.

  • A single transfer is a one to one transfer from your original World to a single destination World.
  • If it's a single destination, you can transfer up to eight characters at once.
  • In the event you would like to move character #1 to World A, and character #2 to World B or C, you will have to perform two world transfers.
  • In order to transfer, the below requirements need to be fulfilled:

→ You cannot belong to a Free Company (If you do belong to one, please leave the Free Company).
→ Make sure the character you wish to transfer is logged out.
→ Make sure there are no items being sold on the market boards.
→ There will be a limitation on the maximum amount of gil you can bring into the destination World.

Additional details on the rules and restrictions will be explained in the official announcement.

Furthermore, it will be possible to move from a new World to a new World, a Legacy World to a Legacy World, and a new World to a Legacy World. In the future, we will look at economic conditions on new Worlds and plan on making it possible to transfer from Legacy Worlds to new Worlds; however, this option will not be available at the start of the World Transfer Service. We appreciate your understanding.


  • What are the benefits of transferring Worlds?

One of the biggest reasons that people use World transfers is so that they can meet up with their friends and play together.

The largest benefits being that you can adventure with your friends, or meet up with the people you've become friends with via the Duty Finder, and of course play with the people you want to play with.

The service also gives you the ability to move to the World that features the name that you really like.

  • What are the risks of transferring Worlds?

There really aren't any negatives to transferring, but there are a couple of risks, which I would like to go over.

Risk of having to rename your character
One risk of transferring is that there may be a character on the destination World with the same name as you. In this case, the name priority is given to the person who is originally from that World.
If you try to move your character to this World, you will be asked to change your name. Applying for the World Transfer Service will be performed from the Mog Station. When applying, the system will check whether there is a character residing on the destination World with the same name. However, there may be cases where a character with the same name is created on the destination World a second sooner than when you are transferred, and while this might be extremely rare, please understand that we cannot guarantee anything.

Risk of congestion
In the event that you use the World Transfer Service and the destination World is one with a large population, login restrictions may be enacted during each region's peak time, which falls between 9 p.m. to midnight. While we have raised the amount of players that can simultaneously play on each World to 8,000, if this number is exceeded, we may impose login restrictions to prioritize World stability. In the event you wish to transfer to a heavily populated World, please understand this risk. Currently the following Worlds are heavily populated:

 
Japan Data Center	NA/EU Data Center 
Alexander	        Behemoth 
Anima	                Cactuar 
Atomos	                Excalibur(LEGACY) 
Carbuncle	        Hyperion(LEGACY) 
Fenrir	                Moogle(EU) 
Garuda	                Ultros 
Ifrit	 
Ramuh	 
Tiamat	 
Titan



Please keep this in mind if you're thinking about transferring to one of the above Worlds. Also, if you and your friends plan on congregating on a specific World, it would be best to avoid the above in order to have a stable play environment.

Risk of gil loss
When transferring Worlds, in the event the destination World is a new World, in order to prevent the transportation of RMT gil, there will be limitations on the amount of gil that you can bring to the destination World. This is a critical specification in order to protect the economic conditions on each World, so before transferring, please keep this in mind. In the event you transfer Worlds and you exceed the gil limit, the amount that exceeds the limit will be lost.

Risk of a period where you cannot log in
It's difficult for us to predict the amount of people that will be applying for a transfer during the free period. You will need to be logged out for the transfer to occur and we will be transferring characters in the order that was requested. In the event that there are a large amount of applications then there is the possibility that you will not be able to log in for a couple of days. We will keep an eye on the congestion and make announcements regarding this, but in the worst case scenario, please understand that you may not be able to log in for a couple of days until the transfer has been completed.

  • Warning if you are transferring to a specific World because you like the name

Due to the character creation restrictions that were imposed after the official launch of service, there may be cases where you really wanted to play on Chocobo, but made a character on a different server. By using the World Transfer Service, you will be able to move to the World of your choice. However, as I mentioned above, in the event that the destination World is heavily populated, there is a possibility that login restrictions will be imposed during peak times. Please carefully consider this when making your decision.

  • Warning if you are moving to a World with multiple friends

In the event you have four friends who had to make characters on four separate Worlds, you can use the World Transfer Service to all meet up on a single World. However, please make sure that the destination World is not overpopulated for all of you. Transferring with multiple people will affect the population, so we recommend selecting a World that has a comparatively lower population so that peak times are stable.

 
Japan Data Center	NA/EU Data Center 
Asura	                Coeurl 
Belias	                Brynhildr 
Pandaemonium	        Faerie 
Unicorn	                Famfrit 
Yojimbo	                Goblin 
Zeromus	                Lamia 
	                Lich(EU) 
	                Malboro 
	                Mateus 
	                Siren 
	                Zalera


The above Worlds have a good amount of room, even during peak times, and are also a good destination for those who are just starting FFXIV: ARR. These are great choices for those of you wishing to transfer with multiple people, so please consider these.


I apologize that there were those of you who were unable to select the World of your choice due to character creation restrictions. We will be announcing details and rules for the World Transfer Service in the coming days.

Thank you so much for your continued support for FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn.

Ouch.

I'm not sure transferring my JP server alt off server is worth not being allowed to log in for possibly a couple of days.

Meh, what's a couple of days in the grand scheme of things? You're planning to play for months, if not years, right?

This. The only thing my legacy character has that my main on Lamia has not surpassed is my Giantsgall sword from 1.0's version of Skirmish.. As much as I miss my coral-theme Master Sword, once I manage to get my hands on one for my ARR character, my legacy character won't have anything I haven't already reacquired.

Ok I have a real important question. I'm a FC leader and plan to transfer. I simply can't just leave my FC as it wont allow it. What should I do in the position? Id be happy to promote someone to master but I don't recall that option. I also dont want to just dissolve it since other people are going to stay on the same server.

How much gil will the restriction be set to, I wonder. I am by no means rich, but I will have a decent amount of gil on me...

I'd guess a million gil or so. If you have more than that, invest it in durable goods.

Greetings,

I apologize that we are starting to leave the beginning of October and head into the middle of the month and that information on the world transfer service is late. The development team is in the midst of finalizing the implementation date, so unfortunately I am not able to inform you of a specific date when this will be available just yet.

I believe we will be able to make announcement very soon about the start date, and I will be sure to let you all know as soon as I can.

You know, that's a great question... Can a new character on a legacy server transfer to a non-legacy...

On one hand, they could say no, the presence of someone who had access on a legacy server could disrupt the fresh ones. Yet those on legacy have had as much time to level as those not, so I don't see why they would restrict them from moving to non-legacy. There obviously has to be a flag on legacy accounts (hence the rewards given to them), but really, that's going to be an interesting question to see answered.

Late reply but you can promote someone to leader just like you promote officers.

Greetings, everyone.

I’m happy to announce that the World Transfer Service will become available on October 15.

We are currently performing our final testing on the service in preparation for its launch, and as long as no major issues are discovered between now and tomorrow night, we will be launching the service according to schedule. In the event that an issue is discovered, there is a possibility we push it back a couple of days, so we appreciate your understanding if this were to happen.

We'll be announcing more details on the Lodestone very soon, but I wanted to give you all a heads up!

I'm getting the feeling the answer would be no, otherwise, the exploit would be:

1. Start new character on Legacy server.
2. Load up said character with every conceivable crafted multi-melded endgame gear readily available on a Legacy server and any other items of value sure to be rare on a fresh start server.
3. Transfer character to new server.
4. Get to 50 in a few days with the new character (if you haven't already).
5. Pwn.

It's still pretty much against the spirit of a fresh start server. Someday, this won't matter, but we haven't reached that day yet.

Doubtful that they don't(yet again) follow WoW's model here. You'll likely be restricted in having to attain a minimum level as well as a cap on the amount of gil you can carry with you, possibly related to your level also.
