New World Support
Inactive Character Transfers
Characters who haven't logged into their game world for over 180 days will become unbound from their chosen world. This system aims to reduce queue congestion during high-peak times, prioritizing active players.
Unbound characters won't lose any progress or data. However, social connections exclusive to their previous world, such as company membership, friends list, ignore list, and buy/sell orders, will be removed.
For characters who become unbound from their home world, the option to select a new home world will appear on the character select screen. You can choose a new home world as long as the newly selected world meets these criteria:
The newly chosen destination world must be within the same region as the original home world; cross-regional world choices are not supported.
The newly chosen destination world cannot be at full capacity, meaning new character creation has been temporarily disabled due to high population.
The newly chosen destination world cannot be a Fresh Start World, unless it was the character's original home world.
The character's new home world can be the same as their previous one, as long as it meets the criteria mentioned above.
Please note that this choice is permanent and can only be changed by purchasing a World or Region Transfer from the In-Game Store or by becoming inactive for 180 days once again. Therefore, if you are expecting to play with friends, it is highly recommended to agree upon an available world before committing to your choice.
Important: Both inactive character World Transfers and paid World Transfers are subject to a transfer cooldown timer of 30 days. However, as of 10/3, the cooldown has been temporarily reduced to 24 hours to accommodate the large number of returning players. During this cooldown period, you cannot make another world transfer until it expires.
You can view the Server Status page for current server statuses.
