List Of Qualifying Servers Available For Character Transfers Is Live

Published by under Breaking News on Jun. 12. 2012.

UPDATE: The list of source and target servrs has become too large to maintain by hand. I highly recommend everyone interested in which server is allowed to transfer checks out this thread on the official forum maintained by official SWTOR staff.

Together with the end of today’s SWTOR maintenance it got revealed which servers are eligible for server transfers initially. This got posted on the official website on the server transfer page. For those of you not able to acess the official website – here’s a summary:

UPDATE: The list of servers eligible for transfers has been expanded with additional 5 NA servers and 3 EU servers. Additionally, Joveth Gonzales (Senior community manager) has posted on the official forums a list of Destination servers as well (while the transfers page on the website only has source servers). Transfer table bellow has been updated to reflect this new information and we will keep updating it as the situation progresses.

NA Servers:

Origin Server   Destination Server
Keller’s Void   Jedi Covenant
Hedarr Soongh   The Fatman
Soresu   The Harbinger
Rakata Mind Prison   The Bastion
The Courageous   Canderous Ordo
Kath Hound   The Ebon Hawk
Ven Zallow Jung Ma
Fa’athra   Drooga’s Pleasure Barge
Lord Ieldis   Begeren Colony


EU Servers:

Origin Server   Destination Server
Stereb Cities   The Jedi Tower
Eye of Ashlanae   The Red Eclipse
Phateem Halls of Knowledge   Mantle of the Force
The Restoration Zone   Jar’Kai Sword
The Shadow Runner   Tomb of Freedon Nadd
Mecrosa Order   Darth Nihilus
Zayne Carrick   Vanjervalis Chain
Shaltin Tunnels   The Progenitor
Kessel Run   Battle Meditation

To start the character transfer process, login to your account on, click My Account and then click Character Transfers in the left hand menu. From there you will be able to select Start a Character Transfer and see if you have any characters eligible for transfer to selected servers.


I would also recommend you read the Character Transfer Service FAQ before you initiate the transfer process.

Character transfers start June 12th

Published by under Breaking News on Jun. 06. 2012.

Surge of The Old Republic related news is starting along with the appearance of patch 1.3 on the Public Test Server. The most awaited piece of news is certainly how will Character Transfer Service work and when will it start. Answers to both of those questions can be found at the official blog post on entitled “Character Transfer, Server Populations and You“. We find out that the Character Transfer Service will start on June 12th 2012. – even before patch 1.3 is deployed. Character transfer will only be allowed between certain source servers to certain destination serves (which servers exactly will be offered to move where exactly remains to be announced). The intention here is to try and improve the population on certain servers. Albait limited, this service might get extended later on with a paid option where you can move to wherever you want for a fee.  
It seems that a certain level of manual labor will be involved in character transfer so this process will not be instantaneous and you can even expect to see long transfer times in certain situations where there is a huge number of characters to be transferred. They are hoping to do it in hours, but it might take much longer than that if there is a huge rush.  
Here are some more details that will be covered in more detail in an upcoming FAQ:  

Legacy will be transferred to your new server and your unlocks will be available there too. If you have already unlocked your Legacy on your destination server, the higher level Legacy will take precedence. For guild members and masters, you will not be able to transfer your guild as a whole to your new server; instead you will need to reform it. If you have a guild bank, it will be re-granted to your new guild on your destination server by Customer Service. This is not an automatic process and you will have to contact Customer Service directly. If your transferred character’s name conflicts with an existing name on a destination server, you will be asked to rename your character. In the case of Legacy names, unless you have unlocked your Legacy on your origin server, you will need to rename your Legacy upon transfer (although you may pick the same Legacy name as on your origin server, if available).

We wish everyone at Bioware good luck with this new Character Transfer Service and may it be the first step towards complete recovery of this great game.
