It's basically an item without a texture assigned to it. They've appeared in every single WoW beta I can think of. I had several during the time I was in the Burning Crusade beta.

Just wondering if there is anyone here that plays on either Proudmoore Horde or Hyjal Horde? I'm trying to decide between those 2 servers and would love some info on them. I've tried posting a few other places and gotten almost no info.

Hey, is there anyone on EU servers who is willing to send me a resurrection scroll at all? PM me and I'll send you my email.

I still have screens from TBC beta with these little cubes for unfinished models. Never forget the time I was being chased by them since the BE models weren't finalized yet.

If anyone is still looking for a scroll send me a PM with your Battle.net e-mail and which server and faction you want. I can send you one from any US realm and faction. If you want Moonrunner Alliance or Gnomeregan Horde then I'm willing to give you some gold if you re-sub once I get the mount.

A friend recently got back in and he was telling me it's $25 per transfer per character, which is crazy high IMO. I know that <Kotick joke here>, but have they ever responded directly to requests to justify that expense as populations decrease? Maybe there's a policy in place my friend didn't know about, like if your server falls below X members you get 1 free transfer.

I'm not saying unlimited transfers should be allowed, but one or two character transfers every 60-180 days seems about right. It's a sensible interval and it ensures that the gaming experience isn't adversely affected by low populations.

It is a crazy high price but Blizzard doesn't give one single Fuck.

I think the $25 price tag was originally to discourage frequent transfers. The transfers had to be done manually back then. Now it is automated and takes a matter of minutes. They could definitely lower the price, but people are used to it now. I've transferred a couple in the past and have one that I would like to transfer now, but I don't want to spend $25 again.

Yeah, $25 isn't defensible. It's automated, server populations are all over the place, there's really no reason to prevent people from doing this if they're not abusing it.

Who says they need to defend it? It's a completely optional service...a person is able to enjoy the game without ever requiring a server transfer. And people would abuse it if they got a free server transfer every now and again. Gold Sellers would use it to move gold from one server to the next...Ninjas could live without fear of a bad server rep...Guild leaders would be free to ransack the GBank and leave whenever they want to. The $25 acts as a deterrent from such behavior.

Although there are two methods to get a free transfer. First, be on a high population realm and hope Blizz opens up free transfers to a low population realm. Or use the new Resurrection scroll system, which grants the resurrectee a free server transfer to the realm of the resurrector.

BTW, this is all JMO, I'm not looking to start a "blizz sucks" flame war. As you and others have noted, Blizz doesn't need to modify this. I'm just surprised it doesn't come up more often as their server populations are really all over the place now (and those numbers are subs -- I was looking for indicators of server activity but couldn't find anything).

Who says they need to defend it? It's a completely optional service...a person is able to enjoy the game without ever requiring a server transfer.

I think that if you're willing to put playtime into characters in an MMORPG (meaning you're prepared to sub for a while) and yet you're stuck on a deserted server, you should be allowed to transfer them to improve your MMO experience without an exorbitant fee, if any at all. Especially now that it's been streamlined.

It shouldn't be "optional" in the sense that it's a low priority for Blizz. I've heard enough "I'm questing all alone" stories from friends on abandoned realms to know that it adds a lot to the game experience when other people are around.

The $25 acts as a deterrent from such behavior.

Creating policies to deter gold farming at the expense of gameplay is a bad idea.

It shouldn't cost 2 months of playtime, and you shouldn't have to wait for a scroll handout to transfer one char in a blue moon.

The pricing is meant to be 'just right' in terms of decision making. Not too steep that nobody would use it, but not too lean that it becomes a tool for moving wealth or abuse. The way it stands, it should make the decision to move a character to another server a tough one. You also have to consider server populations as if the cost were too low, you'd end up with horrible imbalances with people flocking to popular servers and abandoning theirs.

TOR is a prime example of this in the wild because the game is so new that players are overloading 1-2 servers and leaving all the rest at low.

Yeah, and I suppose WoW isn't at the point now where imbalance in server populations is a huge deal. I guess my question is more of a "moving forward" thing. They've certainly hit a price point that forces deliberation, it's just that as the process has become more automated, the cost might be worth revisiting.

I have no intention of getting back in (famous last words), but were I to do so I'd need to shuffle more than one toon around. Attracting someone like me with a single scroll isn't going to do it, because I'm thinking about 3 or 4 toons and how to get them on server(s) that are not abandoned. In that sense, temporarily discounted transfer fees may be a better carrot than one single move.

Does the new expansion have anything new for lower levels, I have never got a character to the highest level, even though I plan on it with my recently new annual pass.

I wish i was better at wow, its hard to figure stuff out, because people yell at you if u ask questions. Anyways, I'm level 21 goblin shaman, having fun. What will the new expansion hold?

Oh and i do have a 80 undead warlock that was auto leveled with the scroll of reserection. But i have no clue what to do at that point in the game lol. So i never use him.

After boredom from SWTOR and D3, I'm back to playing WoW again. I finally finished leveling my rogue to 85. I now have 4 85's, but I then started leveling a mage. Normally, I quest to level up, but with the mage, I've been doing a mixture of questing and running dungeons with the Random Dungeon Finder. I basically quest while waiting in the queue and I'm leveling up pretty fast with this method. I figured that I'll try to get as many of my alts as possible to 85 before the expansion.

If anyone wants a scroll of resurrection (returning players) or a recruit a friend (new players) invite, just let me know and I can send one your way. I'm in a small, casual, lvl 20 horde guild on Khadgar. But we all get along great, help each other out, and have a no drama policy. It's always more fun to level up with someone else.

Once you hit 80 and the real grind starts, I had fun just farming herbs/ores all the way to 85 with my alts. You'd be surprised how fast it goes if you just turn your brain off and put on some good music. Not sure about the market now but it also brings in a ton of gold plus resources to level your profs. Did that with my hunter, shaman, druid, and mage. Some of them were even 60 when I started but it went super fast.
