Square Enix will open up world transfers in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn within the next two weeks, according to producer Naoki Yoshida.
World transfers will be free for the first five days to allow users who weren’t able to join their friends due to server overcrowding a chance to do so. After the first five days users will have to pay to transfer. Additionally, server capacity will be increased to offer players a greater chance of getting onto the server they want to.
To qualify for a transfer players must meet the following requirements:
- Must not be part of a Free Company.
- Must be logged out at the moment of transfer.
- Must not have any items in the market.
- Players may be limited to how much Gil they can carry over.
In the event of a name clash it will be the character joining the server that must change their name.
