Is There Anything I Should Know Before Transferring?

When transferring a character to another server, please keep the following in mind:

  • Any additional character slots or bank tabs purchased on your character do not transfer.
  • Only items in your pet inventory and character's inventory can be moved. The bank does NOT move with the character.
  • Your Battleground Rank will not transfer with you, so please be sure that you want to transfer!
  • All items in the inventory of the transferring character will display an "acquired-on" date of the day of the server transfer. It is not possible to restore the original acquired-on dates.
  • Any friendship bonds you have with another character will be reset, even if that character also transfers to the same server. These will not be reset by En Masse, and must be earned again on the new server.
  • The Vanguard Roll-Call Buff is on a per-server basis, and will not be transferred between servers with the character.

How Do I Transfer to Another Server?

If you would like to transfer your character to a new server, all you need to do is follow the steps below!

  1. Sign into your account at
  2. On your En Masse Account overview click "Transfer Character."


  3. Click on the server that your character is located.


  4. Select the character you wish to transfer. If you see the "Unavailable" tag shown on your character please make sure you meet all transfer requirements.


  5. Select your destination server.


  6. Click the "Transfer for EMP" button. The cost to transfer is 2,495 EMP per characrer or 1,495 EMP per character if you are an elite subscriber.


  7. Click "Initiate Transfer."


  8. The Transfer a Character tool will now confirm all requirements, character name, from server and destination server. If this is all correct, press "Submit."
  9. You will now see your pending transfer under "Transfer History."

What if My Character's Name is Taken on the Server I'm Transferring To?

If your character name is taken on the destination server that you wish to transfer to, you will need to choose a new name. Once the character transfer process has completed, when you attempt to sign into your character on the new server you will be prompted to change the name. After typing in your new character name, press OK to confirm the name.

If you love your character's name so much that you have it tattooed somewhere we don't want to know about, you can do a quick check by rolling a character of the same name on the targeted server to see if the name is available. If it is, delete the "test" character and make your transfer.
