Fresh Start World FAQ

Q: How long will the servers be locked from transfers from existing servers? Will players in these Fresh Start Worlds be able to transfer out of them?

A: Not at this time.

A: Players will have a third character slot added on November 2nd. Any and all character slots may be used towards Fresh Start servers or Legacy servers but you cannot have more than 1 character per world.

Q: Will there be queues for Fresh Start Worlds?

A: We have queue mitigations in place but you should plan for there to be queues on your Fresh Start World.

Q: What if all Fresh Start Worlds are set to Full?

A: Servers may become locked between waves due to world capacity and queues but we will monitor worlds closely, especially during and right after the rollout phase to ensure that players can join a world in their preferred region.

Q: Are Fresh Start Worlds the same as Return to Aeternum Worlds?

A: We will be releasing Fresh Start Worlds at the same time as Return to Aeternum Worlds. At the start, Return to Aeternum servers will be reserved for event participants, but once Return to Aeternum ends, they will be accessible to the public.
