World Transfer?

#1ErkiBPosted 9/2/2012 11:54:44 PM
Im not getting it, Well I understand the concept but I do have some questions.

Like are the World Transfers currently free? If so, How long time will they be free?

How long time does the transfer take?

Also I heard somewhere that you could "guest" on other servers but cant WvW on them?

Could someone clear things up for me?

Thank you.

World Transfers are currently free, I don't know how long but I assume for the next week or two with the massive influx of new players hoping people spread apart.

They will eventually cost money, I don't know how much.

Right now it takes no time at all, it's almost instant. When you confirm your selection the game restarts and when you relog you will be in the new server. One interview stated that when the service has a fee, you must wait 7 days between transfers.

Guesting is still being implemented, I would think it will arrive sometime after Black Market is fully implemented.

if you are in one world, and you have a friend in another. then you can guest (join him) and play together. level up, do dungeons. everything. but you can't do world V world, because you have to represent your world, and guesting would let people choose "the winning side" too easily.

as for transfers, I think they were free for the first week or so (I dont know if it's still up)
and had no cooldown. as for how long it took. literally get dc and reconnect, or a few minutes.

when it costs to transfer, there will be like a week cool down

So the only restriction to playing with another friend on another server is that you can't do WvW together? Is this for certain or speculation?

For certain.

That's great news for me then! I've been suffering on a underpopulated server just because my friends are on there. Now I can go back to the highly populated one I was on and still play the entire game with them (apart from WvW). Right?
