Where can I find EverQuest character transfer instructions?

Please note that all transfers are final.
Customer Service will not reverse, refund, or otherwise modify a transfer once completed. Please ensure that you have set up your transfer to your satisfaction prior to submission.

  • Account-to-Account transfers are unavailable at this time.
  • Payment must be made from the source account.Items and coin in your Shared Bank will stay on your original server (and account).
  • You will be removed from any Real Estate plots you own.
    • All items in your current house/plot will be placed into a moving crate, and will appear on your cursor when you first log in to your new server. You will need to purchase a new plot on your new server if you wish to unload your moving crate.
  • Your character will be removed from their guild and fellowship.
  • Characters that have been flagged to receive Veteran Rewards maintain this flag, however, as these rewards are based on the age of the account, your character may gain or lose abilities depending upon the Veteran Reward level of the account the character has been moved to.
  • Transferring a character to a different account does not include a name change token.
  • Please note that transfers are typically not allowed on special rules servers.
  • You may not use the transfer service to bypass account restrictions, suspensions, or bans.

Account to Account Transfers are currently unavailable. Unfortunately we still don't have an ETA to give at this time. We're likely still a couple of months away, but that is a very rough estimate which is subject to change. We are working on the tech needed to re-enable them, but are a ways out from this solution.

Prerequisites for Transferring to a new Server

  • Your character must be at least level 20.
  • Your account and character must be at least 30 days old.
  • Once a character has been transferred, that character is unable to transfer again for 24 hours.
  • You may initiate 8 character transfers within a 180 day period. If your character has been transferred within this time frame, you will need to wait before you can transfer them again.

Transferring to a Different Server

  • If your character’s name is unavailable on your destination server, you will need to choose a new name for your character.
    • This name change is considered final. Customer Service will not change your character name post-transfer regardless of how long you’ve played, activity levels (or lack thereof) of the character in possession of the desired name, or any other circumstance.

Instructions for Transferring to a New Server

Ensure that you have reviewed the prior information in this article before beginning this process. If you are utilizing a free transfer (such as to Zek), you may skip steps 1, 2, and 3 by simply using the /servertransfer command.

  1. Type /marketplace or click the EQ button and select “Marketplace” from the menu to open the Marketplace window.
  2. Go to the “Services” tab in the Marketplace and purchase a Character Transfer Token. Please ensure that you have adequate inventory space to hold the Token.
  3. When you are ready to transfer, right-click your Character Transfer Token to consume it. This will open the Server Transfer List window.
    • If you close this window by mistake, you can reopen it by using the /servertransfer command.
  4. Click to select your desired destination server.
    • If the list indicates that your name is already in use on that server, you will need to enter a new character name in the provided field. Once you have done so, click Refresh to check if your entered name is available on that server. Repeat if necessary.
  5. Click the “Transfer” button to move your character to your new server. You may need to confirm after this point. Once you have done so, you will be immediately disconnected and your character will be transferred to their new server. Please allow a few minutes for the process to finish.

Server Transfer Rules

  1. These are general guidelines and we may make exceptions to them in special cases. Ruleset restrictions may apply to any guidelines that would otherwise appear to allow a transfer.
  2. Characters can transfer from progression servers to live servers unless other ruleset restrictions apply.
  3. Characters can transfer to other servers that have the same unlock pace if the destination server was created when the origin server was first opened.
    1. Characters on slow servers (Coirnav) may transfer to another slow server. Characters on a fast server (Selo) may transfer to another fast server. Characters on a fast server may not transfer to a slow server.
    2. Servers that were first opened on the same day count as the same age for this rule.
    3. Servers that were created to spread out high demand (such as Lockjaw) count as the same age as their parent server.
  4. Characters from a slower server can transfer to a faster server that is the same age or older.
    1. Slow to normal, fast, or live, normal to fast or live, fast to live.
    2. We could get more complex with this rule, since the actual key is expansion unlocks. A fast server could outpace a previously created slow server, and thus be an okay transfer destination once it matches or exceeds unlocked expansions of the origin server, but this rule as written keeps things simpler to manage.
  5. Characters from true box servers may transfer to non-true-box servers or live servers. The previous rules also apply.
  6. Characters from NON-True box servers may transfer to other non-true-box servers or live servers, but NOT to a true-box server. The previous rules also apply.
  7. Characters from servers where the server starts with unlocked expansions beyond the original EverQuest may transfer to servers that have already unlock at least as many expansions.
    1. The example we have is Miragul, which started with seventeen unlocked expansions (House of Thule), except Miragul is not a good example since all characters start off as Heroic Characters on this server.
  8. Characters on Free Trade servers can only transfer to another free trade server and may NOT go to standard trade live servers or progression servers. The previous rules also apply.
  9. Characters on voting-based Progression Servers can transfer to live servers only. No other transfers are allowed from voting-based Progression Servers at this time.
  10. When a progression server makes it to the current live expansion, it will become a live server and thus become a valid target for any transfers where the rulesets otherwise match. This change will happen during a patch and not automatically.
    1. I.E. if it is NOT free trade, characters on free trade servers may not transfer to it. If it remains true box, non-true box may not transfer to it.
    2. Unlock rates no longer apply. (I.E. rules 3 and 4)

There is a general rule you can derive from this: a server with more restrictions can move to a server with less restrictions that has the same or more expansions unlocked.

Free-Trade is “less” restrictive than standard trade, so that rule still holds true. True box is more restrictive than non-true box.
