So due to real life, I wasn’t able to play as much as I wanted (being a resident physician In NYC during COVID can be rough).

most of my FC members had moved to gilgamesh. My IRL friends also started characters on aether.

I read through the main website already.

So...I have a few questions.

  1. how long does it take for the transfer to be complete?
  2. is there a limit? Am I able to go back to courel if I am not satisfied?
  3. do my retainers and their stored items and gil go with me? Any limitations? My 50mil gil that I made Throughout the years is important to me >__>
  4. has anyone experienced any issues or character loss during transfers? That scares the s*** out of me because I invested a good amount of time playing on the same character.

the 1 thing I heard about transferring worlds is that after you do it there is a time limit before you can do it again. For the others things I dont know as I havent done it, sorry.

Yeah you definitely can transfer again, but there's a waiting period, and you'll have to pay again.

You can bring your stuff (or most of it anyway), but depending on what server you're going to (i.e. preferred or not), there's a limit on gil. If it's not a preferred world, the limit is very low, like 1 million gil maybe.

To get around that limit, change your gil to items. For instance, find something on the other server you can sell when you get there for at least as much as you paid on your server. But 50 million will be tough to change.

The below is a comprehensive guide that should answer all your questions.

For all servers or just when going from congested and/or to preferred?

EDIT: looks like the limit has been removed.

Data Retained After TransferThe following will be transferred along with your character:
  • Friend List (When changing the Home World to another World within the same Data Center. Note that the Friend List will become unavailable upon changing to a Home World on a different Data Center.)
  • All items, including gear and minions
  • Retainers and all items in their possession
  • Moogle letters
  • Gil
  • * The amount of gil that can be transferred is limited to 999,999,999 gil per character and retainer (including any gil attached to a moogle letter).
  • Doman Mahjong rank and ratings.
