Servers Going Bye Bye - World Transfers

Post by Tach Deneva » 21 Aug 2015, 09:55

Some servers are going away, including Nimrodel, where some of us had a Kinship. It's been years since anyone besides me played LOTRO, so it probably won't matter to most of you guys, but if you want to keep your Nimrodel server characters, I suggest you log in and transfer them to another world -- when the transfer function is enabled, that is. They've been having some issues, but should get it all worked out soon.

I'm transferring my Nimrodel characters to Gladden. Since I'm currently the only active player and the leader of the Kinship, it (theoretically) will be transferred there with me.

Anyway, that be the news. Down with Sauron! And stuff.

nope - I actually did play a couple sessions earlier this year! at least I think it was this year.

Tach,
if you can keep at least me updated via this thread I would appreciate it. I will follow the leader.

however, we might find out what server Zinlu and his group plays on and transfer there.

OK - Zinlu and his group are moving to Landrovel. He says it is an RP server and there are often GM run events, but if you are not into RP that is OK too. no one is forced.

thoughts?

I'll check it out. The only reason I picked Gladden was because I have some characters there, too. Consolidation in one swell foop, as it were.

understood. what happens if you have completely free characters on two servers, one going away and one to transfer to? do they let you double up? my guess is no. not that I have any needs - just wondering. I think you have plenty of character slots.

let me know what you think of Nimrodel.

Not sure how it works in LOTRO, but if it works the way it did in CoH there shouldn't be any problem so long as you have slots open to receive the transferred characters. The only issue I can think of might be duplicate names, if a character named Bobo tried to move to a server where there already was a Bobo.
