The question most commonly asked by my small guild is "Will the transfers be by character or account?". In other words, will each character be transferred individually as limit allows (8 toons on a server= 8 transfers) or will the account holder be able to transfer all characters with a single transfer?

I get the impression it will likely be per character, but it would be nice to see the option of moving characters a lump from one server to another. Of course with characters taking some time to be processed, you could queue them if do them in lumps, so that you still have a character to play while you wait.

There is no official answer if the transfer is by character or account. Anything else is speculation. :-)

I'm assuming that the Destination servers will be the more populated servers of a particular server type/time zone.
For example, The Ebon Hawk and Lord Adraas would seem to be likely Destination servers for the other Eastern RP servers. Is my line of thinking correct?

Bioware hasn't said what criteria they're using. No one publicly knows what criteria they're using. Anyone who says that they do know better cite their links because all I've seen is speculation.

I'm not claiming to know, just guessing. Offering transfers off of several lesser populated servers to the higher populated servers of that type/time zone would just seem to make the most sense.

I'm trying to keep speculation *out* of this thread. This is not the right place for it. You might choose to voice your speculations in the official thread - it's not impossible you'll get a dev to comment on them there.

Sorry if i missed this one point......if it was listed but i didnt see it. I understand that guild banks wont be transfered but what about the players own bank.....will it transfer with the character with no problems?.....or does that also need to be handled with CS.

Suggestion for a small change to one of the bullet points:
If you have a legacy on both servers, the higher level legacy will take precedence.

I'd change that to:
If you have a legacy on both servers, the higher level legacy will take precedence but you will keep all unlocks of both legacies.

Really great job this thread!
