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:
