Sale on character services this week...

Postby halabar » Tue Jun 04, 2013 7:58 am

Now's the time to save those old alts, or jump off dying factions/servers... 50% off all services this week...

Debating reviving my pally or DK.. or moving one toon to a different server for gold making purposes..

Oh man. Looks like I might be race changing my panda monk sooner than I'd anticipated.

Decided to just move over my Orc hunter to my "main" server, but leave the pally and dk in the ether...

But the Orc got flagged for a rename... dangit. Need to come up with a new Orc hunter name...

Ehh.. not hunterish enough. And too many would assume it's Pugpug. Need something more harsh and guttural for a Orc. I liked what I had, Gruck, but it's taken.

Gruk? Gruhk? Grukh?

I mean, there's probably 10 other phonetically true ways to spell Gruck if you really get creative. Maybe one of them is not taken?

Actually... just did a Bnet search, and the other Gruck is some pissant lvl 3 monk who doesn't show up otherwise, so gonna petition for the name tonight.

Indeed.

However, just discovered a slight addition to the Gruck name that sounds good and Orcish, doesn't appear to be used, and also is not used on Twitter, so might rename my wow twitter feed to that. Still might gruck that monk though in case I change my mind.

I renamed my rogue what my shaman's name used to be. Leads to some interesting achievement credit. "Earned by Kektonic: Not earned by Kektonic"

Went ahead and transferred my warrior and rogue who I don't really intend to play much. I hope they get the message that demand is there for a lower price on these services!

More than half of my quite big friendlist has changed realm-name-race this week and/or transferred several alts

I think with this move they really made a lot of money

I'm not gonna lie if they'd keep these prices I'd use them a hell of a lot more. I've still got a bunch of toons on dead servers but I'm not spending 60 bucks to faction/server xfer each one. 30 bucks isn't so bad.

Cleared off my old servers.. 11 toons on AP and I'm done.

Side note, if you have a 85+ that you vendored all the gear then deleted the toon, and then bring the toon back, they give you a mostly complete set of 372 gear for each potential spec, so Halabar got prot, ret, and holy gear. They are pretty much complete sets except for not three versions of the rings and trinkets. Not sure what my druid has, waiting on a name petition.

It's a good thing because it allows people to move to where they want to be, but for those of us staying put, it sucks because there's a massive influx of people selling "rare" items they invested in for the transfer.

Today I got accosted by no fewer than 3 people trying desperately to sell their pets, and trade is filled with laundry lists of pets and xmog items.

Moved 3 toons over including my mage who can xmog the old PVP gear (yay special snowflake), my rogue that was my first character ever and my paladin because for some reason I have no legitimate tank alts over here.

I wonder if they're putting any stock in how many people have used this as far as potentially lowering the prices permanently.

Possibly, but I'd expect they'd be expecting a big short-term gain on such a sale. Now if they actually also had tech to make the transfers easier (presumably that database transfer wasn't completely automated or otherwise cumbersome, hence putting a barrier in place to deter its regular use), this could also be a good way to see how robust it is :P

It appears in the final hours of the sale that the servers are crashing from the load... they might have to extend. :lol:
