Today Vyvyanne, LOTRO’s Executive Producer, revealed in a forum post the starting date for transfers off closing worlds is September 14th.
“On September 14th we will begin transfers off of the first two of our closing worlds Elendilmir- US and Estel- EU.”
Vyvyanne also states that the closing servers will remain open for play until 2016 and transfers to Bradywine should start near the end of the year.
Wondering when your server will open for transfers? While there are no set dates, Vyvyanne did say this list is the order they will open transfers.
In another post, Vyvyanne reminds players that character creation will be closed once transfers open on a closing server.
Also, until the remaining servers are updated to the new hardware, transfers between remaining worlds will be closed to give priority to characters moving off closing worlds.
