The server transfer bug is still not fixed!

While we’re already being used to major bugs not being fixed for a long time,
it is however unacceptable you keep selling this service in the store while this issue is persistent!

not sure it is allowed to respond in this thread…

about recent bug (since few patches) with problem to transfer character…

I heard from other in-game bro with the same issue as you that if you jump to Outpost in Great Cleave region then you will be able to accomplish character transfer to another server. Not sure if this is legit info, maybe try this and let us know.

Explosive Arrow still doesn’t explode on impact with rocks, flints, trees, buildings etc.

Certain abilities fizzling out with impact on surfaces was not fixed. It works on some surfaces like dirt paths in windsward but not rocks, wooden floors and probably some others.

The Packet Baskets are not supposed to give any Azoth, at least according to the data. It seems that the actual bug is the fact that it even shows up in the UI.

I got a fix to this! If you go to shattered are relog a couple times full restart and wait until your body goes away when you get back on after a couple of tries you can transfer :slight_smile:

BUMP FIX NOW. This is SCAMMING players and theft because service is not what is being advertised.
