Legacy Toons

So…. I understand Legacy Server which is up at the moment and new server coming up in about a year and a half from now…. but you may draw more people back if people legacy toons can actually be played inside the new server as well. I know I have a couple 1k toons from legacy server and I really don't want to start ALL over. If there is any way you can allow legacy toons to be brought over to new server once the new server comes up… that would be awesome.

The new server is coming June 1st this year (as in approx 2 months.

Awesome, now what about Legacy Toons playing on the New Server?

Suggestion: Provide a transfer for a Legacy Toon to go New Server for a price. This will not just fund the The Realm as a whole but would be very much appreciated by people like myself that played this game 15+ years ago :)

Unfortunately there won't be a transfer between servers for a couple of reasons:

  1. There was far too much duping and hacking going on in the NG server.
  2. We've changed the items around a lot - many of the items that NG server characters have do not exist on the new server

If you want to do the prestige leveling, having 1k's really wouldn't matter. But being 1k usually meant you had at least some loot. What if new accounts got a "gift of legends" that randomly dropped a rare weapon or gear?

Will The Legacy Toons be carried over at all? But lvl 1? just newbies.

Just make a new toon with your name.

There would be no real reason to create a migration tool just for the sake of creating new toons, as none of the items or even stats from legacy toons will fit into a new infrastructure without some modification.

AFAIK.

Gimli (Staff)

Carrying over toons at level 1 wouldn't be ideal. Keep in mind the new server will have different game mechanics. Things like ASGW won't be effective anymore.

MIKEtheWIZ

Ahh man I Love my 1k ASGWARRIOR, do you mean ASGWIZ or Warrior?

EvilNeville

ASGWarrior wont be "as effective". Wizzys have been buffed same with dex based dps.

Harry

ASGW is still good for carrying mule and single target DPS.

@Gimli I understand not bringing over the old characters due to hacking a duping of items etc.. But would it be possible to bring over the old characters as a blank toon and level? Rather than just simply recreating the toon from scratch on the new servers? JW if this is possible or not. Maybe make this a noble only feature? Or something that could be purchased from the Sovereign Shop? I could see this being of benefit to both players and the realm itself, the nostalgia of playing on your old actual toon rather than just a carbon copy on a new server.

There are several issue with doing this; primarily the one that comes to mind is that some of the names from Legacy are already taken on Finvarra's Fortress. We wouldn't want to reserve all of those names. I believe there are around 200,000 names taken. :)
