Transfer A Character

Transfert de personnage

A new Ogrines service is available today: transfer a character to a different server! Are you feeling the need to see new faces, try a different server, or join your friends who started their DOFUS journey elsewhere? Now you can!

Transfert de personnage

Since the original announcement of this service, many players have been eagerly asking when it will arrive... and that day has finally come! The new Character Transfer service is already up and online!

The Server Transfer service allows a user to transfer one or more of their existing characters from one server to another. The character is “migrated” with all the items they are holding in their inventory, including their Dragoturkey and its inventory, and any Dragoturkeys roosting in paddocks, public or privately owned.

Each player can transfer their character to the server of their choice, but transfers must adhere to certain criteria:

  • A player may not transfer his character to a server outside of their community.
  • It is not possible to transfer a character to the Heroic server from another server, nor to transfer a character created on the Heroic server to a traditional server.
  • Only characters above level 20, or with a profession higher than level 20 can be transferred.
  • Only one character transfer is allowed per account per month. It is possible to transfer one or more characters on the same account from the same server at one time, but the service will be blocked for one month after each use.
  • All characters with the Mercenary alignment will be automatically returned to the Neutral alignment on their new server. Any items related to the mercenary alignment in a character’s inventory will be deleted during the transfer process.
  • Items for sale in the Marketplaces will not be transferred.

The number of migration slots that are available for each server in a single week (including the the migration of multiple characters) are limited by quotas. Once these quotas have been met, the server is no longer available in the list of target servers until the following week.

Transfering a character to another server costs 9000 Ogrines.

You can learn more about how this service works by visiting the relevant article on the Devblog or visiting the Support FAQ.

YOu can only transfer once a month. + it costs 9000 ogrines, which is not exactly cheap ^^
I do not think this will be a problem.

i really think this is a bad idea, players with accounts in both old and new servers will probably transfer high lvl characters and rare/expensive items to the new server, giving a huge advantage, the fun of a new server is to start from the bottom, transfering a lvl199-200 char with a turq/ochre/other dofus will simply destroy that fun

Most people don't truly understand the best methods of making kamas from this. The key is MULE characters lol. Send a level 20 over to a cheaper server. Make a new character on that server. Buy a bunch of cheap stuff. Then send that character over back to the more expensive server. Cause the service is so expensive you'll need to find a place where you can make a killer profit from. Create some new accounts on different servers and have them scout the prices.

I think what people don't understand is, it says CHARACTER transfer. It won't transfer the items in your bank. It won't let you keep your house or paddock. (On another server, someone else likely owns them anyway). And I would give 10 to 1 odds you can't take anything except your characters gear with you. Isn't that the way most games work? I mean, even WoW has character transfers, but I don't think they get to take anything but the gear on their backs and the money in their pockets. And who would spend 18000 ogrines to transfer there AND back? Current ogrines price on Rosal runs 1.5-1.8mk for 3000 ogrines. Multiply that by 6. 9mk minimum there and back. Assuming the servers have the same price on ogrines. I doubt this will wreck the economy flat outright. Either way, not much you can do about it. So either quit whining and play, or quit altogether. Simple.

* EDIT: Ok so you can take items in your inv. so what? I still say no one is going to spend 9mk to change servers in hopes of making a couple mk to take back to their own. Most people are going to use it as a permenant move. besides, maybe it would even out the economies of the servers some. might not be so bad.

Characters stay on the same account, just get moved to a different server. Transfer between accounts is something I don't think Ankama will do.

I'm pretty sure they considered this possibility, that's why there are restrictions regarding the transfers such as only 1 transfer per account per month and also a limit on the amount of accounts transferred per week.

Any sudden increase in items will see a drop in prices too. First few might make a bit of a profit out of it, but soon the markets will balance out and all will have similar prices.

But what if they use 2 account. One account to transfer to Rushu and buy off all the cheap gears they could purchase and the give them to a second account to transfer back to their original server. They would be using two level 20 alts to do the transfers ofcourse, not their main characters.

This will bypass the 1 month restriction. A player could instantaneously transfer items for business purpose.

I have no idea, I'm not in charge of the system so have no knowledge if there are any further restriction details.
If this does happen, the scenario I describe will most likely unfold, only question would be how long it would take to settle.

I said earlier that I am looking forward to this option, and that I have already booked my flight for 8 characters. Just waiting for Tues is going to be killer on me; but it will happen.

I see a lot of whining that this option will kill economies, and that it will be abused, and that things will go straight down the crapper when all these level 200 characters that are fully decked out start coming to rule the new server they go to. Well; I don't think that is going to happen straight away. I am sure that some uber smart idiots will work on just that to try and gain a kama upper hand. I know that these same uber smart idiots will be looking for ways around what ever barriers AG puts in place. Even the creation of alts on server X to bring items back to server Y has been bashed into the ground at some point on the IRC.

AG will most likely be watching the transfers like a hawk. They will see the sprouting up of many new level 20 or lvl 20 professionals that will carry loads of cash and or items, and subsequently be deleted after they are unloaded. It is my opinion that this is a malicious way to work within a systems rules and can be classified as a bug. If we abuse a bug; according to AG, we run the risk of sanctions. I have personally seen some of these sanctions from way back when. They used to be an item duplication bug, and several people were perma banned for exploiting it. Same can apply here as you are doing just that, exploiting a weakness within the system. But, that is my opinion.

Don't use the service if all you plan to do is go shopping on another server for your character... that is a waste of kamas and or real cash to get the ogrines. Use the service if you actually want off the rock that you have grown to dislike the community you started in. I know Rushu is grand and all with it's uber amounts of people and flooded markets and its reduced housing market and its skyrocketing paddock market and the competition for everything h4xXx0rz. But I can't wait to see some new faces.

But I can't wait to see some new faces.

You say that you don't think high level players will switch servers, but you yourself are transferring your 8 character team although you didn't mention if it was to a younger server.

I have a hard time seeing how Ankama can sanction any abuse of the system, as many of the so called weaknesses seems to be intended since most of them could easily be addressed and dealt with. The system is flawed and can easily be abused and there are no sanctions or penalties to prevent any of this. You say it will be a waste of real money to abuse this service, but ogrines can be bought for kamas. I know of several players who don't use any real money on this game any longer and many of them are able to buy 3000 ogrine for around 1mk. Spending the 6-8 mk it will cost to transfer and alt back an forth is really no real obstacle to many semi-high level players and high level players.

To me one of the amazing aspect of the game was the free market, that there weren't any predetermined prices, that most if not all transaction had to be made between players and not between players and NPC's. I loved that each server had to establish it's own unique economy based on the servers own conditions. Now the markets in the different servers are no longer separated.

I really like this game and there are a lot of friendly players, but there is also a fair part of unpleasant players who will abuse any weakness they can spot and do whatever they can to gain an edge with a minimum of effort. If this wasn't true kama-farmers wouldn't be a problem.

I hope that you are right that this system won't be abused, but I doubt it. This is not just about abuse of the different markets. Why should new players want to come to a server like solar to level their professions and themselves when they can go to an old server with easier access to materials and easier access to other players who can help them run dungeons and hunts. When new players have reached a sufficient level on an old server they can just go to younger server if they'd like that.

I am well aware that this service will never be removed again. But I do hope that there will be made some changes to it.

this service ll surely mess up the economy of server a lot. prices are high in new servers and low in old servers. so simply go shop from old server and come back and u r awsome. same with ogrine prices which vary server to server. with the cash i have i can buy like 10 years p2p from old servers like rushu lol.

i would love this service if they make community markets have same economy. like make the ogrine market into 1 market and so so. instead of this service , merging the new servers seems much better idea.

Look, People complaining about not being able to transfer characters from one account to another, the reason AG can't do this is because it would allow you to steal characters from an account you hacked. so stop complaining because you can't take whats not yours.

Great, by creating three times as many accounts as you need, and stranding their characters on servers you never go to, you've gotten around the time restrictions.

What you haven't gotten around is the cost of kamas to pay for the Ogrines for the two transfers. You're going to have to find things at a major, MAJOR discount in order to even begin to make up for the ten million-ish kamas that you'll have to pay for the actual transfers. For most players, it won't be worth it.

This is like a friend of my mother's, who used to drive hundreds of miles out of her way whenever she wanted to fill up the car, because the gas prices were cheaper in the next state over.

Well tbh prices are starting to getting more balanced but Solar's prices (for example) are still pretty high when compared to servers like rushu.
