On Tuesday, May 20, we will be merging servers by platform. You can check out the full details on our server merge support page, but following this handy checklist will ensure you don’t get caught off guard!
Log in this week and claim 6 additional character slots
It is very important that you use these slots on the server where you have the highest number of characters. The current limit on characters slots is 19, and your account on the merged server will have slots equal to the server where you had the most total slots before the merge. (Players on platforms not affected by the merge will not receive additional slots.)
Start the game with each of your characters.
Due to the possibility that characters on merging servers will have the same name, priority will be given to active accounts with the longest play time.
Come up with several backup character names
Your favorite names may already be taken on your new server.
Identify characters on any server you don’t need, and delete them.
To make the server merge as smooth as possible, remove any important items and gold from unnecessary or unwanted characters, then delete those characters. While no characters will be deleted during the merge, if you have more characters than your maximum number of slots (see above) after the merge, you will need to delete characters down to your slot limit before you can play the game.
Confirm any guild you’re in has more than two members.
If a guild drops below two members for any reason—such as characters being removed during the merge—the guild will disband and cannot be recovered.
Retrieve any items you have listed with the Trade Broker
Your trade broker items will be preserved when the servers merge, but the economies of the two servers will also merge. We highly recommend removing all items you have in the broker before the merge as price difference on items may be very different.
